Some people play ENTIRELY too much Grand Theft Auto
2002-02-15 09:18:49 AM  
I hope they catch the arsehole.
2002-02-15 09:18:58 AM  
That's at least two stars worth of wanted level =P
2002-02-15 09:25:15 AM  
He should've done it in a stolen tank. Now THAT would've been cool.
2002-02-15 09:25:25 AM  
Holy shiat! They should cut the guys fingers off so he can never again hold a steering-wheel.
2002-02-15 09:27:48 AM  
And my friend wonders why I refuse to go to NYC when she asks me......
2002-02-15 09:28:33 AM  
They did catch the guy -- that's what the article's about.

I posted this and mistakenly put "25" in the headline (the # of people injured) instead of "26" so before everyone starts pointing this out, let me just set the record straight, m'kay?

"JETTA, the hit&run car of choice of a new generation"
2002-02-15 09:31:00 AM  
BTW, Finger has my diack in his mouth. Just thought I'd point this out.

2002-02-15 09:32:33 AM  
Anyone else notice the post says "25" people when it was actually "26"?

2002-02-15 09:33:15 AM  
Hmmm...I heard he turned himself in...anyone know for sure?

I think you can get away with saying 'dick' without tripping the filter, Dd

According to NY1 (the channel I mean), he went home to his mommy, and when the police arrived she came out and told them he was hiding in the basement. Good job, Ma.

Another slightly more sensational story can of course be found at NYPost.com:

NYC edition.
2002-02-15 09:39:19 AM  
Ha, Skidnuts those were my thoughts exactly when I read the headline.
2002-02-15 09:41:24 AM  
This will teach the married folks not to date. Your idiot boyfriend will come shoot you then try to kill 26 innocent bystanders. I blame it on the woman who was cheating on her husband. Anyone who cheats on a spouse should be shot.
2002-02-15 09:55:02 AM  
I bet his car insurance will probably go up!!!!
2002-02-15 10:02:29 AM  
First he shot his girlfriend then he runs people over? This mother has ISSUES!

be from Jersey.
2002-02-15 10:02:59 AM  
Gwinny, thanks for the link,
2002-02-15 10:11:51 AM  
I think the guy was justified in running those folks over. One of them had gone thru the express line w/ 13 items.
2002-02-15 10:22:32 AM  
I'd rather see a News Flash tag than another asinine.

Is anyone *really* that shocked about a bad NYC driver?
2002-02-15 10:22:43 AM  
Those people probably deserved it, walking when the sign says 'Don't Walk'. The nerve of some people...

Anywho, this guy is a farkstick who probably needs to be put down.

2002-02-15 10:25:12 AM

Terminate him.
2002-02-15 10:30:18 AM  
I've gotten so used to saying diack I may not be able to stop.


Whew, I did it.

I still think they should chop this dude's fingers off.
2002-02-15 10:45:09 AM  
Gwinny: Props for sneaking a four-syllable word into a headline! Great word, 'apprehended'.
2002-02-15 10:46:44 AM  
...even if you can't count...
2002-02-15 10:54:56 AM  
From the Department of Redundancy Department:
He was arrested later at the Garfield, New Jersey home he shares with his mother. His mother came out of the house, informed the detectives that he had arrived approximately 10 minutes earlier in a cab and that he was inside hiding in a basement.

"The mother of the defendant came out of the house and informed detectives that he had arrived approximately 10 minutes earlier in a cab and that he was inside hiding in the basement," said Asst.Bergen County prosecutor James Santulli."
2002-02-15 10:57:15 AM  
So how come this is "asinine" but the Afghan guy being beaten to death is "amusing" - get some single standards, peeps.

Still trying to find the link where his mom says he picked up hookers alot. Now there's something to tell your mom about at dinner.
2002-02-15 11:05:38 AM  
Damn, if I had a mug like that I'd probably run people over too.
2002-02-15 11:12:49 AM  
Cardinal: thanks, I try...and am working on my counting...
2002-02-15 11:21:50 AM  
Here's a pic of his old girlfriend. She dumped him for Joey Buttafucco.

Brilliant reporting. Redundant much?

Who wants to bet he gets off with psych treatment in the end? Time served, 26 months max.
2002-02-15 11:41:21 AM  
OMG these farking animal stone age yanks. All they ever do is commit crime and kill, bomb and maime other people. I think the whole world should just get together and nuke their prehistoric arses and turn the US into a big crater.
2002-02-15 11:42:29 AM  
CCG: What's your tipple?
2002-02-15 11:43:57 AM  
2002-02-15 11:45:29 AM  
I hope they were all Yankee fans he hit. Otherwise, what a waste of time.
2002-02-15 11:50:11 AM  
CCG. Thanks for posting. I'd forgotten how utterly full of hatred for Americans you are.

You desparately need a life.
2002-02-15 11:52:55 AM  
CCG: Apparently, Clown College forgot to teach you how to spell "maim" right. Of course, we Americans would HAVE to know how to spell it, since maiming is part of our regular routines and all.
2002-02-15 11:57:01 AM  
yup, my bad. I spelt "maim" wrong.

BTW Goatman, what type of tipple did you mean? The thing we'll use to unload our nukes?
2002-02-15 11:59:31 AM  
I think he means what do you drink.
2002-02-15 12:06:03 PM  
Okay, so nobody noted my sarcasm.
2002-02-15 12:07:44 PM  
CCG: Nah, I'm just an enquiring mind...
2002-02-15 12:11:34 PM  
Ah, i see. Well i'm not a heavy drinker. I, infrequently, have a beer from time to time.
2002-02-15 12:26:32 PM  
Next time some arsehole cuts me off i'm driving them into oncoming traffic.
2002-02-15 12:40:15 PM  
Well at least he only killed people..... He'll get out of jail in 5 years

It could have been a LOT worse for him...They could have caught him with an ounce of weed and given him 20 years, he should be out and driving around agin in no time....
2002-02-15 01:00:20 PM  
Soupgoblin --
And if they'd caught him with an ounce of weed after his spree, The Man would point it out as another Drug-Related Death.

Anyone else remember the X-Police skit from Saturday Night Live many years ago?
2002-02-15 01:31:05 PM  
He is most likely going to be labeled mentally unstable and just end up in a psychiatric home/prison. He left his exgirlfriends purse in the first car he used, how asinine...sounds like he wanted to get caught.
