I happen to own a blue 1989 Honda Accord. I'd better go make sure the headlights work ...
2002-03-16 06:49:52 AM  
I love America...I can come home blind drunk from a hockey game at damn near 4AM, and hear about some dude completely farking up his life by getting hit by a car...ahh life is great i tell you...

still alive, biatches!
2002-03-16 06:49:58 AM  
Hooray! fark'ss back.
And i thought it would be down till Monday.

(ok, so this isn`t the right thread, but who cares)

The fark filter altered the URL on you, Lench. Ess aitch eye tee becomes 'shiat'.
2002-03-16 06:53:24 AM  
Sec I am sure that can happen about anywhere. I don't think Autos hitting people only pertains to North America.
2002-03-16 06:59:22 AM  
But the car the man was driving was later determined not to have been the one reported stolen, according to authorities.

Quite lame. It would be nice if the cop that had the biggest role in this innocent man's death would be prosecuted...

Oh wait, he's a cop. I forgot he can run around doing whatever he wants without having to deal with the consequences.

> observed a man driving a blue 1989 Honda Accord

What kind of junked up loser would steal a old hunk of shiat like that.
2002-03-16 07:08:01 AM  
Are you saying that if someone runs from the cops they shouldn't be pursued, Boomslang?
2002-03-16 07:08:05 AM  
It's called culling the herd . Good job .
2002-03-16 07:10:53 AM  
New police tactics: pick a citizen--any citizen--and give chase; chances are good that they've done something wrong somewhere along the way. If you're extra lucky, they'll be sufficiently freaked out to lead you on a high-speed freeway chase and then run into oncoming traffic, thus saving you ammunition.
2002-03-16 07:22:58 AM  
Doesn't this need the "DUMBASS" tag? Also, does that reporter spell/grammar check? Christ, they missed several words missing pluralization.
2002-03-16 07:27:57 AM  
Hmmm... yeah, either dumbass or stupid, I'm not sure which. Given that I don't find this hysterical, and I usually find stuff with the dumbass tag extremely funny, I would have to go with stupid. But I'm not sure whether that would be belittling the guy's death or not. Apparently the poster struggled with this dilemma as well...
2002-03-16 07:43:17 AM  
tag should be *HERO* to take your self out of the gene pool like that...that's a Hero
2002-03-16 08:21:56 AM  
here is a rule of thumb: If trying to escape police DO NOT run into on coming traffic, especially on a freeway. I agree with soho1004---dumbass.
2002-03-16 08:26:50 AM  
running svcks
2002-03-16 08:41:33 AM  
Good! Better some dumb@ss like that than an innocent family. No compassion for people like that.

"Every chance I get and I'm in the suburbs of Chicago, if I see a cop patrolling by and I'm on foot, I dart. 90% of the time, the police car has pursued and I've laughed my ass off after they stopped me. They have no right to."

Not so, Supreme Court passed a law that says if you run from police, even if they had no right to stop initially, this is deemed suspicious behavior/activity and they can detain and frisk and conduct field interrogation to try and determine if you have in fact done something.

Also, every town/city has a local ordinance book that is about as thick as your couch cushions. There is basically a law for EVERYTHING, so if they really wanted to be asses they could find something to charge you with.

What's the point in having a Honda if you can't show it off?
2002-03-16 09:25:02 AM  
2002-03-16 09:36:59 AM  
Hee-yowtch. I bet they had to scrape him up with a shovel.

What makes someone do that? That's just stupid squared
2002-03-16 10:48:59 AM  
Was probobly high.

Why is he chasing me? Shiznit...must have seen me fire up that spliff.....better RUN!


Shouldn't have fired up that "J" in the car home-boy!

Crazy High Guy
2002-03-16 10:54:29 AM  
anyone have video of this ???
2002-03-16 10:55:45 AM  

post no blasphemy here please
2002-03-16 11:16:36 AM  
The dude was found 350 feet from where he was first struck.
I bet there are plenty of pieces of him lying around still.
That is unless the flesh eating zombies stopped by for a quick bite.
2002-03-16 12:56:00 PM  
wow. i could throw a rock from my house to where this guy got tagged. glad i was asleep by the time this happened, or i might have been stuck in traffic. these auto vs. pedestrian accidents can tie up freeways/surface streets for hours.

"Apparently the driver traveled at speed of up to 90 miles per hour at one point running a red light on Broadway"

WOW! That's one faaaast Honda!! Must have a huge rear wing and an exhaust tip the size of an oil drum! Man! I guess that Hondas truly are REAL RACE CARS!!! Go riceboy, GO!!!!!

HAHAHAH this guy is a Darwin Award candidate for sure.

-he who stacks pork
2002-03-16 02:40:14 PM  
Porkstacker still isn't funny. Hop on a bike with no seat Nancyboy.
2002-03-16 11:51:46 PM  
And I thought I had vendettas ! He must have REALLY pissed you off one day in the threads.
Personally, Leopold Porkstacker is an O.K. guy in my book.
One of the first 1000 FARKers/FARKettes !
You got to at least respect/envy him for that.
2002-03-17 12:33:59 AM  
The above poster is as gay as a football bat.

Wonder why he ran...hmmm....
2002-03-17 01:13:15 AM  
ok, SLAYERSWINE, in the spirit of some killer White Widow (wish i had some, but its a KB budget week) I will drop my vendetta against Porkstacker since it is very old.

Cheshire- call Slayer gay again and...and.. i'll cry.
2002-03-17 03:47:59 AM  
Porkstacker, that is some funny shiat! LMAO!
