    Clear Highway - ONE car being chased - 50 cops cars in pursuit

    http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/channel?...ver&id=5755213

    (after the commercial)

    Now that is simply embarrassing for Houston Texas ..lol. Seriously? Almost 50 cop cars to chase one guy on the highway?? And the ones that filmed it?.... a film crew from the tv show COPS

    I guess a lot of houston cops wanted to be on tv...

    I feel bad for the people that had over 1 hour response times for 911 calls.

    Hot damn, how are only 13 being investigated. Sorry I just saw the caption, it is not playing for me for some reason.

    On a side note, remember that guy about a month or maybe a little more that was being chased and ended up going to a McD's drive through because he said he knew he was going away for a long time and wanted one last burger. That would have been PERFECT for this chase. Imagine a guy ordering at the drive through with 50 cops in line behind him, heh.

    Houston is a big city, I'm sure there were hundreds of other law enforcement officers not involved in this able to handle normal calls.

    They said in the news that it left large chunks of the city unpatroled and left people waiting for law enforcement for over 30 minutes(Upwards of 90).

    It doesn't make sense why the police would do this.

    This guy is going to be popular in Jail. "I had 50 cop cars chase me." I still want to know what was going through these guys minds or at least what was said over the radio.


    Bob: "Hey Joe, dont you think there are enough cops following this guy"
    Joe: "Fuc* No Joe. I wanna be on TV beating the Sh1t out of someone!"

    Wow, crazy. We don't really get that here in the UK. Our cops just give up and leave them.

    Same here in NL. They just chase you long enough to write down your insurance plate number, track the owner with their onboard systems and if the car is not stolen (so the actual owner of the car is in the chase) they just visit your house later on.

    Thats why his tires were blown.... but he kept going. If I had that many cops on my butt, I wouldnt stop either. Out of 50 cop cars (many having two cops in them), ONE of them is bound to screw up and pull their trigger when you step out. It only takes ONE nervous cop.... well I dont know, most of them cant hit the side of a barn even if standing right next to it... you could probably run away in slow motion and never actually be hit by one of their bullets.
