Watch: Police Chase Ends In A Very Surprising Way, Anti-Police MSM Completely Ignored This One
Police responded to a call for domestic dispute but shortly before they arrived 41, year-old Latrece Curry had fled the residence. Moments later a speeding car was called in and a two county-long police chase began. What followed shocked everyone.
Curry was forced to pull off into a parking lot by the police and officers approached the vehicle with their guns drawn. Remember, the officers had no idea that the two incidences were connected and they would find a 'terrified' Curry behind the wheel.
'I got to the driver's side door and told her to unlock the door, she had her hands up, she was shaking like a leaf. I mean the poor girl, when I opened the door it was like a look of sheer terror. She was scared to death,' Richardson told The New York Post.
'The look on her face was of sheer terror,' Richardson added in a Facebook post from the department.
'She was shaking, and it was obvious she was scared. I talked to her to calm her down and then she hugged me.
'That has never happened to me after a pursuit,' he added of his 23-year career.
What police didn't know at the time was that the earlier call of a domestic disturbance would later be described by reports as domestic abuse. It's believed that Curry was fleeing the home, not the police and in her statement she explained her state of mind more of shock:
“Her statement to me was she was just in the zone, she didn’t know what she was doing and she was extremely sorry. She had no criminal record to speak of, had never been in trouble that I know of. She just made a really bad choice,” Richardson told The Post of her arrest.
Curry was taken into custody and charged with fleeing the police, because regardless of the circumstances, Curry broke the law.
Richardson repeated it was the first time a pursuit had ever ended in a hug in his 23 years on the job — but it is a “great example of keeping your emotions in check at the end of a pursuit.”
“Compassion is a good thing to have, especially in policing. With everything going on in the world today, everybody makes mistakes,” Richardson said.
Oddly enough, I saw no mention of this on mainstream media tv. Just a few very short online articles.
What a shame.
