You flee, you die

I have no idea why silly idiots attempt to flee the Police. They a) never succeed, b) always get caught, c) usually wind up dead or severely injured.

Four teenage girls were allegedly fighting and knocking over tables at an Auckland cafe shortly before they were critically injured in a crash following a one-minute police pursuit.

The girls, two aged 16 and two 17, had to be cut from the car after it hit a concrete median strip and lost control before crashing into a concrete block wall on Kepa Rd in Kohimarama late last night.

Police said the pursuit lasted about one minute. 

The car crashed through more than five metres of a 2m-tall concrete block wall, trapping the girls inside the vehicle.

At least one of the girls was still conscious and cried for help while firefighters cut them free, a witness said.

“One was screaming, ‘I can’t breath, I can’t feel my legs. I’m going to die, I’m going to die’,” neighbour Humphrey Hart said.

“I heard the bang, it was pretty loud.”

It is real simple, you flee, you die…stuff knows they they do it. No one in New Zealand has ever died by pulling over when requested the Police.

I waiting now for assorted criminal rights groups and the Labour party to blame the Police.
