Breaking News – Police chase through Belconnen

By caf - 14 June 2006 34

At 1:30pm (10 minutes ago as I write this), what appeared to be a blue/grey late 80s model Magna came flying down Chandler St and turned, tires squealing and smoking, onto Benjamin Way in front of Belconnen Mall. The car was pursued by two unmarked Police cars into the Westfield multistorey carpark, with a third (marked) police car following along Chandler Street about 20 seconds later.

The perpetrators showed a marked disregard for human life by driving dangerously through an area heavy with lunch-time pedestrian traffic. One wonders if this was a deliberate ploy to increase the chances of the pursuing police calling off the chase.

Anyone else observe this? Presumably the full story will eventually become public.

What’s Your opinion?

That’s right, I read something about how he stated that they (Singapore) would not get rid of the death penalty.

I think this is the same guy that came flying down my side of the road on William Hovel at 1pm. I was driving North, he was going South – almost in my lane! Scary stuff – I thought he was going to drive into us. He was being followed by 2 marked police bikes at this point.

I can’t wait to go grammar police on the media release :)

In the meantime, I hope the offenders take a cactus to the rectum.

My Bad! I don’t know how to delete my comment, but the information matched my search… All except the date, which I didn’t notice until after the fact. Whoops!

A magna?

Kind of reminds me when Sideshow Bob stole the Wright brothers aircraft in the Simpsons and everyone was chasing him, at a crawling pace….

A six-cylinder Magna is no slouch.

No, this is why some of us pay to subscribe.Then we have five useful minutes to delete anything out-of-date, silly, badly spelt or too nasty.

A late 80’s Magna didn’t come in a six-cylinder. Unless you were deliberately aiming for a non sequitur. In which case, an espresso-ladened banana milkshake is awesome.
