Hmm… the chase started in Pittsburg. I leave it to you to come to your own conclusion.

Just another night in the ghetto. Get used to it. Concord is the new Oakland.

Antioch / Pittsburg why am I not surprised? Such GHETTO people from there.

Looks like a nice enough fellow, I wonder what happened, must have been a misunderstanding.

Dummy driver. Burt Reynolds you’re not…


Please...Please...Please... June 8, 2012 at 11:30 AM

Just once i’d like to read that one of the Peuking Maggots jumped out of the truck waving a gun at the cops, and was immediately and legally exterminated.

I heard the sirens last night on Hwy 242 and knew it was another big incident. I believe there was a helicoptor, too. Really dangerous situation.

Great video from our friend video freelancer Craig Cannon! Thanks Craig!

How do they get the spike strip down? June 8, 2012 at 11:56 AM

I can’t figure out how this works. If they stop traffic to put down the spike strip, then won’t the traffic be backed up so that the chase doesn’t get through to where the spike strip is?

Unless…maybe they detour the traffic off of the freeway onto city streets and then put down the spike strip on the freeway?

I can hear his prison buddies asking “You did what?” He can always claim he didn’t know his wheels were on fire in court.

The CHP/Sherriff/local constables will run a traffic break or “rolling road block” while another cruiser will speed forward to deploy the spike strips (or “stop sticks” as they are called in other parts of the US).

A traffic break /rolling roadblock is when a police cruiser makes wide esses on the freeway with his/her lights on to indicate that traffic is not to pass him/her. This usually occurs to let road crews or other law enforcement officials to remove road hazards like trash cans, mattresses, ladders, tires, wood/metal debris, etc.

If the cruiser stops with the emergency lights on then it is a full fledged road block.

A perp will usually run a traffic break/rolling road block and be funneled over the spikes. The spike strip is connected to a long line so that officer manning the spikes will pull them away so as not to damage the pursuing law enforcement vehicles.

End of the lesson.

The truck belonged to a disabled friend of mine and was stolen Sunday Night from Castro Valley ( he had just loaded up getting ready for an doctor appointment with the VA Monday morning. If you watch the video, you can see my friends scooter on the back of the truck. He has a limited income and only had minimum coverage on the truck. He just had the scooter ramp installed on the back and it was new.

Yeah, i wondered about the contraption on the back of the truck and it looked like some sort of ramp or lift. Advise your pal to sue the perp for compensatory and punitive damages.

Nom de Plume June 8, 2012 at 4:47 PM

@dbc, I’m sorry for your friend and hope they get full compensation+. The first thing I thought of after seeing the video was the vehicle’s owner. I doubt the idiot who stole it would drive their own vehicle in such a manner. That is awful.

Stop Stick looks too tricky.... June 8, 2012 at 5:10 PM

I’d much rather empty a shotgun into the Peuking Maggots head as he speeds by…

Cruella June 8, 2012 at 5:17 PM

@dbc. I’m so sorry to hear this happened to your friend. Awful.
So glad they caught the person responsible and nobody was seriously hurt.

Blah Blah blah June 8, 2012 at 6:32 PM

And nothing ghetto never comes out of claycord? Sorry but I hear of more issues in claycord then any where else.

Dennis June 8, 2012 at 7:03 PM

@ blahblahblah note youruse of ‘out of’ and ‘in’. Ghetto comes OUT OF Pitt/Antioch, where it is dealt with IN Claycord. See? You answered your own question 😉

Typical Bullshlt . . . .

The vehicle owner gets stuck with all the financial expenses, regardless if the suspect’s crime is caught on tape.
Pointless to sue the suspect for reimbursement since they’re usually destitute.

— If suspect’s cannot reimburse their victim of all “out-of-pocket” expenses, then suspect’s sentences should be increased “SEVERELY.”

Ghetto has no permanent hometown June 9, 2012 at 8:34 AM

The perp was from Castro valley- not Antioch, Pitts, or claycord. So you all have egg on your face. People can and do move all around and can live in any city at any given time. Does not mean they are a true reflection or representation of the city however. So, next argument please!!!
