Car thief leads cops on chase through Atlanta, ends up fried like so much calamari. Sweeeeeeeeeet.
Train service at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport was shut Thursday night while officials tried to figure out whether the unidentified man fell or jumped onto the rail tracks. Transit authorities brought in shuttles to ferry airport passengers to and from the College Park station.
The man was being pursued by Union City police for stealing a car from an apartment complex in the city about 8:20 p.m., said police Sgt. George Louth.
The man led police on a short chase on northbound I-85 before taking the airport exit, where he collided head-on with another vehicle near the north terminal, officials said.
Of course, all the Atlanta Journal-Constitution cares about is whether or not police officers violated any rules during the chase:
It was the second time this week that a man was killed while trying to run from police. Erving Cobb, 18, of Atlanta was killed Tuesday when the stolen Ford Focus he was riding in collided with a sports utility vehicle in Vine City. The three men in the car had taken off after spotting an Atlanta police van.
If those damn racist cops would just stop chasing the suspects, we wouldn’t have tragic incidents like this where misunderstood young people (undoubtedly abused and from broken homes) lose their lives.
Thank goodness for instantaneous justice! It always saves the taxpayers money and removes one pile of human debris from the gene pool, which is a good thing. That qualifies today as an official Fried Scumbag Friday!
