Town Bans All Police Pursuit

Wellford, South Carolina Mayor Sallie Peake is doing a great job of advancing the interests of her constituents — provided they're all criminals. Apparently it wasn't enough that police are forbidden to chase crooks in their cars. Peake issued the following decree:

As of this date, there are to be no more foot chases when a suspect runs. I do not want anyone chasing after any suspects whatsoever.

In case you're wondering what kind of lunatic would issue such an order:

Peake could be onto something with her tactic of answering every question with, "May God bless you." It reaches across the aisle more effectively than the standard "You're a racist."

On a tip from Stormfax.

Another case of "Liberal gone Wild". How could anyone that works for Bank Of AMERICA think it would be offensive to fly the American flag!

Bank of America pulls flags of fallen HERO, CPL Chris Fowlkes Part 1

Bank of America pulls flags of fallen HERO, CPL Chris Fowlkes Part 2

MORE liberal stupidity, that's how. They have since apologized but this CEO needs to find a new occupation! In another country!

Leave it a stupid liberal dingbat old mindless hen to come up with such a stupid idea SHE SHOULD GET BOOT OUT OF HER NEST OLD SPURWING PLOVER IS MAD SQUAWK SQUAWK SQUAWK

Answering questions with "May God bless you" it's just another form of chanting, what liberals do when they really don't have a creditable answer. Another insult is that she PRETENDS to be a Christian. Peake is against police pursuits because she's tired of bailing her family out of jail - THAT is what cost too much.

Wellford sounds like a great place to become a career criminal - providing you can run. But doesnt this discriminate against wheel chair bound criminals? Or does it include escaping on wheels too? What about walking? Or jogging away? At what speed does it become running? Can you stick your thumbs in your ears and make faces at the cops as you run away? Saying "nah, nah, nah! you cant chase me!!! suckers!!!"

In Texas, this would be no problem: If a suspect runs, our cops would just lasso 'em.

How in the world did someone this stupid get elected?

Posted by: Paul H at September 22, 2009 7:53 AM

It boggles the mind.

Posted by: Paul H at September 22, 2009 7:54 AM

Wellford is my kind of town. Thanks for the heads up. I start small with a few smash and grab robberies at the local jewelry stores.

Posted by: Ghost of Wellstone at September 22, 2009 7:56 AM

Maybe those judges who adjudicate walking events at the Olympics can be stationed around Wellford to let police know when they are no longer walking fast but starting to jog...

Red flag, sorry, you're disqualified...

Posted by: Stephan at September 22, 2009 8:00 AM

In other words... when driving through Wellford, pay no attention to speed limit signs, stop signs, red lights ( if they have one ) because the police cannot chase you. If you decide to stop go ahead and grab anything from their stores you want and immediately get mobile.

Should you happen to see Miss Sallie go ahead and grab her purse.

Why have any cops at all? So unless criminal voluntarily goes to jail he/she/it doesnt have to? Maybe one of these criminals will trash and rob the mayors house. Then the cops can just stand there an laugh.

Posted by: Thats Fkd Up! at September 22, 2009 8:04 AM

Would it be ok to just shoot the suspect in the back instead of chasing him? Then you could mosey on over at your leisure.

Posted by: Mr Evilwrench at September 22, 2009 8:04 AM

You know what? In a way this is a good idea in a small town of about 2,000 people. What are the gun laws in SC? Seems to me that if the cops are ordered not to apprehend criminals, its up to me to protect myself, my family and my property.
With everybody carrying a gun, my bet is that everybody is going to be real polite.
'Thank you ma'm'
'No sir, yes sir'
A lot fewer Friday night drunks hootin an hollerin as well. Everybody will be gettin along just fine!

Hey, their guy - Balack Obama - is in office now, so the blacks can do whatever stupid thing they want. With impunity. Just like their leader.

It sure seems like a disproportionate portion of the nuttiness going on in politics lately has a black person at the center. Observation, not racism, since if it's fact isn't racism.

Thoughts, anyone?

Posted by: JustMe at September 22, 2009 8:46 AM

So... you just need to start jogging to be immune from prosecution? Yet another proof that liberalism is a mental disorder. You steal stuff and if police yells, you just start jogging? Insane.

Correction to my previous post:

Observation, not racism, since if it's fact it therefore isn't racism.

Posted by: JustMe at September 22, 2009 8:48 AM

Did she issue an order against shooting fleeing suspects? If not, that could be fun. I'll need to hit the range to sharpen my target shooting skills as bit, but hey - I'm there!

Posted by: Son of Taz at September 22, 2009 8:58 AM

Wow. This is breathtaking. Wellford must be predominantly black. That's the only way this moron could be elected. I can't remember ever hearing anything stupider. And the reporter is going to make her look bad?

Posted by: Rick at September 22, 2009 9:14 AM

I wonder if she voted for Obama?

Posted by: shunha at September 22, 2009 9:14 AM

This is a joke interview, right? An Onion production?

If not, holy mackerel - lunatics running the asylum...

Posted by: Reasonable Guy at September 22, 2009 9:23 AM

Would you "run" for Chief of Police?

Posted by: czuch at September 22, 2009 10:34 AM

Wellford is predominantly black, but only like 49% to 47%. Obviously, this joke of a mayor is kin to most of the majority voters, as even black voters are not stupid enough to vote for her unless they are related.

Posted by: Modilynn Gunch at September 22, 2009 11:09 AM

Its as rediculous as those communities where they banned guns and put up dumb signs reading A PROUND GUN FREE COMMUNITY and the crime in their areas went up

Posted by: Flu-Bird at September 22, 2009 11:54 AM

Guess I should make a trip down to South Carolina, start looting, and giggle as a I walk away, money and jewels in hand.

This dumb bitch is literally asking for anarchy. Case and point, liberalism is a mental disorder.

Posted by: AmericanToTheCore at September 22, 2009 1:39 PM

This is embarrassing for Wellford. I hope this site follows up to let us know if the citizens start a recall election. This woman is a loon. According to her thinking, putting criminals in jail costs money, so: no chasing, no arrests. Apparently she thinks crime costs nothing, but crime prevention does. What a dummy.

Posted by: Itsabigcountry at September 22, 2009 5:00 PM

Just chimpin' out.

This has nothing to do with her being a liberal, and everything to do with her being an idiotic piece of trash. She has no business holding any kind of office.

Posted by: Digits at September 22, 2009 5:04 PM

If leftists think we're unhinged over here on the right, they should stop and consider why. This imbecile actually brought up the gas mileage of a Dodge Charger as part of the reason _foot_ chases were banned. What ever will she do for an encore, blame her illiteracy on the price of carpet?

**COUGH**COUGH*** can anyone say blue flu?

Posted by: allen tanner at September 22, 2009 6:55 PM

She must have gotten her start on the Tuscon school board.

Next on her agenda -- no bullets in officer guns.

Firemen will not be allowed to climb ladders because they might fall and hurt themselves. No running into a burning building because they might get burned.

Ambulance workers won't be allowed to lift gurneys into ambulances because they might hurt their backs.

She's another whack-job, courtesy of the Moonbats-in-Charge ... which is just another way to say that the Patriots and "right-thinkers" have been sitting on their duffs far too long in this country, content to think that they don't need to vote or do anything to stop the flow of evil because "one vote won't matter". Guess again! Idiots like this person -- not to mention Obigot -- get elected when we sit idly by and do nothing. There is truth to the saying "evil thrives when good men do nothing".

I checked Wellford and it's pretty crimeless I don't know maybe they got bored and decided to make things more interesting by electing this schizophrenic and transforming their city into gangsters paradise. Seriously though anyone who voted for her based on her sacred skin color deserved this.

Posted by: AlexD at September 23, 2009 1:25 AM

She is a nut .She does not wan,t to chase her brothers or sisters. Gungho
