Stolen Escalade



  • What a shame fuckin criminal’s destroy a person’s ride they worked for,I think..all you stealing jerks,F.O.A.D.pardon my attitude

    • sharpen your pencil

      I live in the neighborhood that these asshats discarded the suv. They were still driving recklessly after they lost the cops. We were all wondering wtf was going on. This area is full of family’s with children, this could have easily been a lot worse. Maybe our police departments need to be trained in the pit maneuver, or to set up a road block. Something besides allowing these kinds of people to get away and repeat their behaviors….

  • Karma will bite them in the ass eventually.

    Steal an expensive SUV from Eureka only to drive it back into Eureka? Brilliant!
