I have seen this video on quite a few blogs of my friends in California now... There are several things I miss about California... the beaches, Disneyland, the FOOD (In-N-OUT! YUM!) and of course all the rest of this stuff, but I would definitely have to add the following to my list: Car chases. Seriously. Only in California. Oh and it's a good one! I see her on "America's dumbest criminals" some day.

Peggy Ann Boesing is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer and evading police (duh). Thankfully no one was hurt. Read More Here.

That should NOT be funny, but the constant turning around and reversing and then going back the other way again, combined with the music (which will forever remind me of pantomimes where everybody chases the villain around the theatre) just made me laugh!

I actually watched that chase live on Fox News. It had me riveted to my tv for quite some time. The video missed how the cops had to get her out of the vehicle. There was actually a cop on TOP of the vehicle while they were trying to pull her out (through the window, if I remember right)! Amazing

Very apt music!

that is so funny! I laughed so hard. People are so stupid.

Wow, Rachel, I'm happy that you are able to laugh at people who are clearly mentally ill and troubled. As an immediate family member of this woman, it is sad that people find something such as this so funny. Mentally ill people and placing police officers and the public in grave danger? Hilarious!
Peggy is not stupid, just a mentally ill person off of her medication.

You know I don't cuss much, but watching that makes me want to say "What a dumb b**ch!"

I'm playing....I posted!

Yeah, those were the days...several hours consumed watching a crazy person driving down the freeway with half of CA following behind. They can turn bad, though....

The Lord knows everything that's going to happen in the future and is already working everything out. Praying!
Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
