We've seen stories were firemen and civillians have actually had to take charge of bomb scares whilst the police are either AWOL or at a safe distance but last night the occupants of car were able to go on a virtual county wide spree of violent crime and were finally caught by.......yep, a couple of ordinary blokes.
A car, hijacked in E Belfast, was used in robberies in Ligoniel and Glenavy, during which a worker was stabbed, and finally crashed in Ballysllan, injuring two children. It is reported that at this point, the occupants were held by a couple of guys and the police then came.
Amazing, in this day of police CCTV and traffic cameras, that these guys were able to go on such a spree, that inflicted violence, until the lives of two children were almost lost.
BBC News - Two children are hurt when a stolen car crashes in Belfast.
BTW, I tried to find a better link than this but there is an amazing (?) lack of reporting on it.
