GLENDALE -- A Glendale man led two officers on a chase through several city streets after an officer saw him smoking what appeared to be marijuana in his car, a report stated. 
   Jeremy Abbey, 30, was arrested at the end of the chase Wednesday and later charged with felony evading and misdemeanor drug possession after he surrendered to officers in a parking lot at the 1200 block of Mariposa Street, police said.      Officers found what they believed to be the remains of several marijuana cigarettes and a bag containing a substance resembling marijuana inside Abbey's car, police said.      An officer was alongside Abbey at a red light at the intersection of Chevy Chase Drive and Glendale Avenue at about 9 a.m. and saw him putting out what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette in his ashtray, police said. The officer told Abbey not to move, but when the light turned green, he sped away, squealing his tires.      The ensuing chase went through Glendale Avenue, Acacia Avenue, Boynton Street, Palmer Avenue and finally Mariposa Street, where Abbey was arrested without a struggle, police said.      Abbey violated six traffic laws during the chase, including failing to yield for a woman pushing a baby in a stroller in a crosswalk and driving past a school at 40 mph, police said.      Abbey was arraigned today. Information on the proceeding was not available at press time. Pubdate: July 17, 1999

Suspect dies in high speed pursuit
On November 9th 2000 Glendale Police Dept. chases 18 year old girl to her death in 90 mph pursuit, due to the probable cause said to beleive she looked "Suspicious".She was pronounced 99.9% Brain Death due to tramatic head injury caused by car accident brought on by Police chase.Two more related car chases by Police following that with major injuries caused by malicious car chases. And how many more to come until we do something about it.

I Saw It!
I saw it Rainbow and I didn't post it here but I sent it onto Map Inc. Marijuana does kill but only in situations where people fear for their freedom and run and then get killed. Very sad!Peace, FoM!

War on Children
Did you see the nes article about 4 or 5 kids (upper teens) who were trying to get away from the police and dies in a subsequent car crash.They apparently threw out a bag of marijuana and shortly later died.Is this what the government wants? Is this really worth it? How many children do we need to kill before the government will stop their insanity.CheersTom
