yeah wtf how did he manage to drive so terribly?
Saw this live on the local news last night. LAPD tried to stop this guy but of course he decided to run. Except his driving skills was no match for the car he was driving. Several times during the chase, he tried to power through tight turns and just end up doing donuts instead. As the chase unfolded, I could tell that this idiot had never driven a RWD car before and doesn't know the difference. He ended up crashing into several cars after spinning out of control before plowing head on into a LAPD Crown Vic (after another unsuccessful attempt at turning).
It's a miracle no one was killed.
I think the car he was driving was a donked Dodge Charger... not completely sure. TCL detectives please confirm
I like how the helicopter shot zoomed back out when the cops started pounding on the guy! Of course, he deserved it...
... you're not a hipster. But you definitely have hipster tendencies. Stay vigilant... like diabetes, you can manage this.

If it were a street gang chasing him, I might call it self-defense. But when it's a dozen police officers and he's not stopping, it's definitely resisting.
Though I've often thought it best in situations like this, for the point pursuit person to specifically NOT be the first one to apprehend, simply because that officer's adrenaline could out-weigh his logic/reason. Of course, that isn't always an option...
That kid wasn't trying to hurt people. There was no moral right to his getting beat.
These people are committing crimes and trying to flee, purposefully putting others in harm for their own selfish reasons - speeding through residential areas, ramming vehicles, driving the wrong way, etc...
Don't get me wrong, I don't think we should encourage abuse of the law - but it feels good to watch someone get their come uppin's.
I can't say I feel bad for this dude, but what's the purpose of going straight to punches? You can't handcuff and punch the same person at the same time. I understand the whole adrenaline thing, but if dude is reaching for a gun or knife, I think securing his hands would be the smartest thing to do right
