I went shopping in a town south of me about 20 - 30 minutes. I went to a few stores, and visited my sister at work to check the plants there. On my way home the flew by a line up of cars (me including), chasing another caar in front of him. By the time I got further up the road the cop had the car pulled over, and guns drawn. The guy driving was crying and screaming I didnt do anything. It was rush hour traffic so all the morons were on the road so as we slowly drove by I just chuckled in my head. I mean if you didnt do anything why run, and make a fool out of yourself also get more charges under your belt.

Sounds like this young man was not thinking very rationally during his police stop. You never know why people do what they do, I don't think that some even know themselves. Luck had it that no one else was hurt, which is great.

Yes, you are right. If you are not guilty no reason for you to run for that situation. There are lots of policemen act as if they are the one who's right. That makes my blood run so high.

The man tried to run away from the police and that is not a wise thing to do. If the police want to stop someone he or she should go and talk with the police officers. In a car he or she can pull over and let the police car park behind. Maybe the driver had been speeding and didn't realize how fast he had been going. My disabled son is five years old. For his birthday he got a toy police car, a toy police motor bike and a toy police van. He got toy police men and robbers. He always waves to police men passing by when we are out.

the prisons are just full of Innocent people! they never did anything either! why risk your life and others speeding if you didn't do anything? I think I would have gotten a chuckle over that, too.

Running makes you look super guilty. I always wonder what criminals who run are thinking. I've never had the privilege of being able to watch a chase myself (not that I really think I would want to, that's probably too much of the bad kind of excitement) but I've always heard of and seen chases on the news and thought the same thing. Why not stay put and swear you innocence? That actually makes you look less guilty. Lol

That is so true, If you didn't do anything then it is best to just stop and let them see that you did nothing and then go along your business. Maybe he panicked and just started speeding up without thinking.
