12 year old boy knocks out officer, outruns K-9 for blocks
Sacramento - A 12-year-old boy was taken into custody after allegedly leading police on a chase through a South Sacramento neighborhood and assaulting a police officer, according to authorities.
Sacramento police were investigating a morning home burglary when officers spotted three juveniles who fit the description of the suspects. The suspects fled as they were approached.
A 17-year-old boy was apprehended immediately, and another suspect escaped. A 12-year-old boy stayed on the run, allegedly injuring the police officer who nearly apprehended him.
"The officer was chasing behind him and tried to grab him, and the 12-year-old… socked the officer," said eyewiteness John Vasquez.
The officer was knocked down by the blow, suffering injuries.
"He became woozy," said Sgt. Norm Leong. "[He] tried to get up, but fell back down."
Vasquez says he saw the boy continue running, even after K-9 units joined the pursuit.
"If you'd see it, it was like poetry in motion," he said. "The dogs couldn't even keep up with him."
Two K-9s cornered the boy in a backyard, biting and holding him until he was arrested.
The two suspects in custody are facing charges related to the burglary and evasion. The third suspect is still at large, and is described as a black male between 16 and 18, wearing a brown sweatshirt.

that has to be embarrassing. I almost lost a 13 y.o. once. He was quick. When I caught him he was trying to set a trap to send me into a creek below. He was that old and had a felony warrant for stealing cars.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Bravo for the K9's... I hope they got an extra milkbone.
