One thing about people on the internet, they always have jokes! Serious conversation can easily turn into a viral moment in the form of a GIF, meme – or in this case a hilarious video. Earlier this week, a video showing three police officers and a suspected suspect taking a little breather during a car chase sparked some fun frenzy on Twitter.
The 56-second clip was posted Tuesday morning to a Twitter account called Dallas Texas TV. The clip features a faceless voice telling the obvious. Three police officers are running – or jogging, depending on what running means to you – after an alleged suspect. The uniformed officers follow the man in the white T-shirt and shorts up a barely existing hill. The hill leads to a bridged freeway which the faceless voice predicts the suspected suspect.
“He better stop,” said the voice. “He’s going to run on the freeway and cause an accident.”
The suspect initially ran up the hill at full speed with high knees. But shortly after the comment above, the visuals in the video take a hilarious turn. The suspect slows down to a brisk walk. Unexpectedly and almost immediately, the cops give up all ongoing efforts. For more than 25 seconds, the three police officers casually chase after the suspect as he continues towards the highway.
An officer waves his arm at the suspect, but that doesn’t stop him. The same waving policeman is trying to jog a little when the suspect hits the highway wall. But by then it’s a little too late. The suspect throws his leg over the wall and jogs onto the freeway and out of sight of the video.
Even then, the seemingly exhausted officers make little effort to continue the persecution. In the last few seconds of the video, three police cars suddenly raced into the picture.
The shadow room cannot confirm why the suspected suspect was pursued or caught. However, we can confirm that the hill got them all.
