    Tank chase in New South Wales

    With overtones of down-town US comes the link to the below video. No doubt in a decade's time, 101 LEO's would have "been there" ~ NSW Tank Chase



    News story with further video and other links

    Posted Sat Jul 14, 2007 12:18pm AEST

    Police say the man lead them on a long, but slow chase through a number of Sydney suburbs. (ABC) Temporary phone towers may be needed after tank rampage A 45-year-old man will appear in court today charged with destroying a number of mobile phone towers in Sydney's west overnight using a restored army tank. The man has been charged with numerous offences including breaking and entering, stealing, six counts of malicious damage, drug possession, using a weapon and driving in a dangerous manner. He is due to appear in court later today. Police say they first spotted the man about 2:00am AEST as he was using the tank to damage an electricity substation at Minchinbury. Police Chief Inspector Guy Haberley says the man then led officers on a long, but slow, chase through a number of suburbs in Sydney's west.

    "Mount Druitt highway patrol followed the vehicle at an approximate speed of 30 kilometres an hour at all times," he said.

    During the 90-minute chase police allege the man destroyed a number of mobile phone towers and relay sheds. Mobile phone coverage in the city's west has been affected as a result

    How fun. Glad we can share.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Wow what and eventful day that must have been?
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    I believe I speak for most people on LEF when I say, with all sincerity, we have no idea how fast or slow that is.

    I'd hate to be the 251/pursuit controller on that!
    You could almost hear "Junior man does the reports"...

    The motherland is part of the 'non metric lot' too.

    Those are lots of fun to use. I actually got to fire one of those when I was in Army Basic Training. Too bad they won't let you guys use those as needed in your profession. It sure would cut down on the probability of those that choose to run from you.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    Not a LEO
