High Speed Pursuit

I'm 30 minutes late on this and got nothing so far. Developing... Seems like it started westbound on 380, went by Decatur, and ended in the Slidell area. And by "end" I mean in a pasture. Edit: Started near Old Denton Road east of Decatur. It sounds like every law enforcement officer in the Wise County was after this guy.

Heres the story! Thieves were at old AT&T tower on Old Denton Road once they had thier stuff loaded they lead police on a high speed pursuit east on Old Denton Road to Hwy 380 then east on 380 to the Denton County line then north on countyline road all the way to Slidell were they were caught!! Good job to Law enforcement!!!! Thanks to Decatur PD, Game Warden Dowdy, Wise County Sheriff's Deputies, and Texas Highway Patrol the suspects will be spending the night at Walker Hotel!!!

No not every officer. Runaway Bay was in pursuit of a sex offender on the run. Ended up in the bad guy crashing in Jack county. It happened at the same time as this one.

Law Enforcement did a great job apprehending those people for stealing WHICH IS A CRIME DUMBA@@!!!! Oh by the way learn how to spell IDIOT!!!!

Hey 10:23 last time I looked stealing copper is a felony!!!!! Your not to bright!

Anyone note the motorcycle chase in Dallas? Guy was going upwards of 120mph. Police called off the chase and allowed the helicopter to track him - till he hit a car on his own. Seems like a more intelligent approach.

They shouldn't chase them.,,they should just shoot them as they go by

10:23 is right on! It's ignorant to endanger the public for "property" which can be replaced.

Hey 10:23,
I want to be at you house or business with my video camera when you're ripped off so I will have your response on film. " No, no, don't make any attempt to catch someone that has broken the law." "I don't want my tax dollars used for that." "I don't think that is right." "I think we should not let people do their jobs but let criminals take over." 10:23, just how big is your meth lab or kiddie porn operation?

11:23, I do have a clue, when these cops cause a perp to hit your mother or father assuming you know who they are, or God forbid the actual cop hits someone then what? If they worried more about policeing than writing tickets on the highway then maybe less "felonys" would occur. Don't be mad because someones' opinion dosen't agree with yours. Moron is a great word too. LOL

They are lucky they didn't get shot in Wise County! The Troopers here are trigger happy!

11:15 you a f---ing moron too! RETARD!!! If you havent figured it out yet this is Wise County not Dallas!

1:11 you are very free with your impression of others' intelligence. Your comments demonstrate your lack of the same.

Anonymous said...

you can catch criminals other ways besides a high speed chase. you don't need "every officer in the county" in a high speed chase to catch an offender. bring your video camera. as if you'd know how to use it.

Does Wise County have a chopper to follow these bad guys ? If so , who flies it?

Wise County doesnt have a chopper but Constable Tom Bishop has one and would probably be more than glad to help out with it!!!!

Hey 10:23 go price copper then get back with me!!!

Anonymous said...

Yep, just let em go so they can continue to steel and rob to fund the meth addiction. Then one time when they are high on meth they can run you over. Or steel from you when you are home and terrorize your family. Sounds like a great plan "not".

ARM your family and you can shoot them. Good plan, right?

Hey 7:18, 10:23 never said anything about a chopper, get back on your goat. I also never said anything about letting them go, I said there are other means to catch a criminal than chasing them with 10 or 15 cop cars at a high rate of speed. Discussion over, there is no reasonable excuse for this.

what does the price of copper, sorry my glacoma was acting up, have to do with anything? if it is that important to you, buy a video camera to catch them, hire a security guard to watch your precious (more so than life apparently) copper, or get a dog. if it's worth that much, surely these less expenseve options should be no problem at all for you to handle. all I am saying is no piece of property is more important than if one of these chases ends in the sensless death of a human life, again! You can replace things, you can't replace a human life. There are times when the police should give chase, if someone is causing harm or may cause harm to others, but yea, that's it. and because your alleged copper thief may or may not use it to by meth or kiddy porn or what ever you are into later down the road, don't mean they are doing it at the time. opinions are the rite of everyone in this country. you've got yours, i've got mine. if mine makes me an idiot or a bitch, than so be it. that just shows how ignorant and shallow your mind is.

10:23 and l:04 you are right. A high speed chase endangers everyone on the road. In Wise County a high speed chase always involves at least 10 police cars???? That is a lot of vehicles driving fast and dangerously.

Anonymous said...

What if we just made a rule that a chase could only involve 2 cars. That would make them 5 times safer than those involving 10 cars.

Another thought:

"If you have to break the law to enforce the law, then there is no law"----Credit: somebody like Thomas Jefferson, but probably not him.

OR: Let's just have all chases be low speed chases, instead of high speed chases. Then we could apply 50 units to the chase to compensate for the lack of speed. Yea, somebody tell the crooks that now when they run they don't have to go so fast.

Damn, I'm like a genius sometimes.

All of you clueless Monday morning quarterbacks, sure have an opinion about how law enforcement should be done. Yet none of you have a pubic hairs worth of courage to do it. Contrary to popular belief many officers hold degrees. I know of several who could be employed as teachers, accountants or nurses. They chose law enforcement after realizing civillian careers weren't for them. Educate yourself before you judge. You are probably the same morons who complain or call when your neighbor steals your garden hose. I bet you want a pursuit then!!!

Let em all run loose. If they kill someone maybe we can catch it on video. Then we show the video. Then they kill someone else and maybe we video that. Maybe we will be lucky and the people hurt are the same "Morons" hoping police pick and choose to chase for violating the law. Why do we need the law? Let's all arm ourselves and decide who needs to be shot or captured. Oh boy this has all kind of potential for new blogs!!!!

I'm with 530..lets just shoot the shit out of anybody that we think needs it. I love the old west.

Anonymous said...

For my part the first policeman that can should shoot them.Driving like that is no different than shooting a gun down a road.If that happened a few times you could'nt hire someone to flee.DAGO

bigfan said...

When idiots decide to run, the chasing officer usually has no idea why he is running. To flee from an ordinary traffic stop, doesn't make since to most folks, thats why officers chase them. Some would argue, hey, you have their tag info, just go get them later. But, what if the car is stolen, and the owners are dead, due to the driver of the now realized stolen car, had killed them. I'm sure most would agree that it's ok to chase after that guy. point is, when folks run from the cops, there is usually a reason. Give the cops a break, or apply and join them, maybe you can change the world.

Well put bigfan. Besides Barry needs the business.

Rather than 10 or 20 cars in a chase, how about using your radio to communicate and coordinate, your computer to check license numbers and some common sense?

Anonymous said...

Not very well put bigfan. No one said anything about chasing from a "normal" traffic stop. Yeah, if they pull someone over and they run chase the hell outta them. However, 20 or what ever cars chasing someone for theift, you can catch that fool in other ways. Then again the cop wouldn't be able to beat on his chest and say "I was in a persuit and caught a bad guy" now would he.
