Cops-3 Bad Guys-0, Pursuit a losing game for Sac bad guys
Less than 20 hours, 3 pursuits, 7 bad guys apprehended.
Sacramento bad guys did a stellar job today proving that running from the Sacramento Police Officers is a losing game.
In the early morning hours Sunday, one man led officers on a pursuit where he finally crashed and wrapped the stolen vehicle around a light pole. In custody, he was transported to the hospital in stable condition. SEE FULL STORY
In the next pursuit, suspects took officers on a tour of the Arcade, DelPaso, Hwy 160 and downtown areas at speeds reaching 90 mph. When the bad guys crashed their car, all four ran from police but were quickly run down and arrested. SEE FULL STORY
Third strike? Early this evening two suspects attempted to evade police in another moderate speed pursuit in the Florin/24th St. area. This pursuit also ended in a crash when the driver landed their vehicle in the back of a parked car. After the crash, both occupants attempted to flee, but once again, officers ran the bad guys down and placed them under arrest.
We could hope these odds would discourage would be police evaders to not attempt their hand at this game of pursuit (that’s not a game at all and endangers lives), but chances are that another pursuit will commence even before this 24 hour time frame passes.
