Police cruisers are rammed

By Martin Weil


Two Prince George's County police cruisers were rammed Sunday evening as police pursued a car in connection with two purse snatchings in College Park, the county police said.

After the purses were grabbed in separate incidents near Baltimore Avenue and the University of Maryland campus,around 5:30 p.m. police began to pursue a car similar to that described in the incidents.

During the pursuit, the cruisers were rammed but officers followed the car until the driver jumped out and vanished in the Beltsville area.

Police said he had been described as a white man in his 50s with a blue jacket and a hat who was driving a four-door Cadillac.

This is a poorly written article simply because the Washington Post did not verify the citizenship of the thief nor question it.

Good comment!

50 year old white men in cadillacs are running around "wilding" all over the area. The police must put a stop to this middle age white guy crime wave!

. . . and they STILL couldn't catch him!!!

Maybe Santa's running a little low on cash. He just thought he could go into the hood, snatch a few purses, and get out without being seen. Problem is, he looked like a marshmallow floating in a big sea of chocolate. And to all a good night.

Glad they gave at least a cursory description incuding age, race and hat. Wouldn't have gotten that in most crime reports and you know why.

If they couldn't catch the 50ish white guy then who CAN they catch? How slow do these police officers run?

Considering the average 50ish white guy would have his running timed with a sun dial this is actually pretty alarming.

Maybe they gave him a head start, you know, as part of their affirmative action program.

Usually the Wash Post would not provide the race or color of the suspect, until it was the one time it is a white suspect, then they quickly post the detailed look-out. White people do not get upset or offended by publishing the look-out, but black people always get upset when the paper writes the look-outs for all the violent crimes committed by blacks!!!

The PG County Cops were selling drugs in that area and they don't like competition!

The PG po po was afraid that if they ran, the bribe money would fall out of their pockets.
