Skoolie - Police Chase

Earlier today, a Skoolie with Ontario plates was pulled over by Quebec provincial police. He stopped and then fled. Stopped again and fled again. Nail strips were used to try to stop him. 2 adults and 4 kids inside the bus.

No shots were fired, the windshield damage is caused by the police using their batons trying to get inside.

The article is in french.. made a little summary

Poursuite policière sur la route 117 – Mediat

It NEVER is a good idea to run away from the police. Especially in a School bus !!!!

It's unfortunate that this type of stuff is what many people think of when they think of converted buses...

This was all perfectly forseeable and expected behavior. I mean, c'mon, the guy was driving a flat-nose fwd engine BB painted green!

Everyone knows you cant trust THOSE types (ducking!)

Makes me wonder what the driver was initially doing to draw attention to himself.

There is something amusing about picturing the scene of several police officers beating the front of a bus with batons. Seems somewhat ... futile?

I'm a die-hard Revisionist. I like to fill-in the blanks. Makes for a much better story. (Usually as accurate, or more, than what many news outlets provide.)

Robin: I had to look that phrase up. Turns out I have eight in a pasture...

I may have caused a few people to use google translate today.

The futility of running from the police, especially in a bus, seems to be on display. Let this be a lesson to you. Unless you're on a really fast bike in an area with lots of turns and places to hide, don't run. Especially not in a bus, unless it's a really fast bus and there are lots of turns and places to hide.

There was a similar, but more violent, bus assault by the Portland swat team a year or so ago. They used that ram mounted on a truck to poke holes in the bus. Probably wanted to set it on fire like the David Caresh burn.
