Once again the media are all aghast that a young teen is dead after fleeing the police:
Two families are mourning a Hamilton 17-year-old who was killed when he crashed a stolen car in the early hours of Waitangi Day after a short police chase.
A small group gathered yesterday morning at the crash scene, on the intersection of Baverstock Rd and Wexford Rise in the rural suburb of Rotokauri.
It was just hours after the Nawton youth, known as “Rock”, had been thrown from the vehicle he had stolen from a Dinsdale address.
Also in the 1991 Nissan Maxima was a 14-year-old boy, travelling in the front seat, who was last night in a critical condition in Hamilton Hospital with serious leg and abdominal injuries. A 15-year-old girl, who had been wearing a seatbelt, was uninjured.
He wouldn’t have died if he hadn’t stolen a car in the first place, then hadn’t decided that he could outrun the Police. Two separate decisions made by a 17 year old fool…the result of which was his death.
Darwin got another one. People are stupid.
