On the run from the law!

By johnboy - 19 April 2011 5

ACT Policing has apprehended a 16-year-old Southside male who was the passenger in a stolen car which collided with a police vehicle early this morning (Tuesday, April 19).

About 1.50am Woden police observed a stolen dark blue Ford in Weston. When police activated their lights the vehicle failed to stop and accelerated away.

Police pursued the vehicle for a short time until the offenders lost control of the vehicle on a bend, spinning and hitting the gutter. Police came to a stop in front of the vehicle, attempting to block its path.

The offenders accelerated the Ford, hitting the back of the police car and drove away.

Police followed the car until it mounted a gutter in Waramanga and came to a stop. The two offenders ran from the vehicle and police pursued them on foot along a bike path.

Police apprehended the passenger of the vehicle who was in possession of two knives. He will be charged with ride in stolen motor vehicle and possess knives.

He will be summonsed to attend the ACT Magistrate’s Court at a later date.

Ever notice how if the cops catch *one* of the people from a stolen car, it was always the other guy who was driving?

Jesus!! Teenage punks armed with knives and apparently no driving ability whatsoever who are willing to ram a cop car in order to escape??

For years I’ve walked my dog around the suburb at night. I enjoy the quietness and sense of isolation in the dark while being surrounded by people in their homes, no matter what the season. After the apparent recent increase in bogan street crime I’m now alert as I walk rather than relaxed, and I’ve started bringing my walking stick along, in case I run across one of these two-legged predators who might mistake me for prey.

What a terribly shitty situation.
