Reality on speed?

Another one from San Diego...I wonder if he was wearing a "Robber" t-shirt?
2001-10-30 04:31:16 PM  
is it me or is something just wrong with the topic?

Heh... Remember when the tank was stolen in San Diego. We have crazy criminals here

I love the article from farther down the page where the guy chased down a burglar who returned to his house to steal more stuff:

"The homeowner gave chase and caught one of them, (taking) a handgun from him and hitting him over the head," ... During the confrontation, the thief offered to return the stolen property if he were turned loose, Robinson said.

Geez, that's just sad. Had to take the bus to get away.
2001-10-30 04:46:33 PM  
They could of gotten away if they had used the Pikachu VW Beetle! They should of bought it Yahoo. Idiots.

Pop Quiz Hot Shot....ugh never mind.

The headline further down got me: "Man turns himself in; wife was slain in Idaho"

Let that be a lesson to all crooks: If you don't turn yourself in, your spouse will live.

"the man was among four who took two gold chains from the neck of a 26-year-old man"

Poor Mr. T Jr.!

Quirked: yeah I just finished reading that.

During the confrontation, the thief offered to return the stolen property if he were turned loose, Robinson said.

"OR, I could turn you into the cops and still get my stuff back. Hmmm.. let me think about this deal for a minute."

Buses make great escape vehicles!! I use them all the time in Grand Theft Auto III...
2001-10-30 04:57:42 PM  
Wait a minute, it took four guys to steal two chains? Those must have been some big-ass chains.
2001-10-30 05:04:35 PM

Didn't something like this happen on Seinfeld? Seems familiar....

Jerry: "You kept making all the stops?"
Kramer: "Well people kept pulling the string!"
2001-10-30 05:34:59 PM  
Dcho: When I read that, I was thinkin' along the lines of: "Jeez, two gold chains? I'm sure the victim would've had an IROC the theif could've jacked to get away."
2001-10-30 05:53:58 PM  
It's like Speed 2, but with a bus instead of a boat.
2001-10-30 09:00:26 PM  
It's speed causing the whole mess in Diego. Tweak capitol of the world...
2001-10-30 09:42:49 PM  
Does everyone remmeber the crazy guy who hijacked a bus (the 854) in San Diego, drove all the way across the city and then back to where he had stolen it, and drove around and around the same few blocks for hours? That was weird. Not as weird as the tank, but weird.

Now he will go to jail where he will discover that 10 inches of penis does not make a good ennima.
