Grand Theft Auto: Taipei

I found this video of a police chase through Taipei and I thought I'd share.

It reminded me a lot of Grand Theft Auto on Playstation. The police chased this guy for miles and miles, had him in stopped traffic at least twice, and didn't break the window and drag him out. The chase went from city, to highway, back to city. They shot out his tires, but kept letting him drive. Every time he slowed down, they'd fire a volley of shots into this seemingly invincible Honda Hybrid (they build 'em tough in Japan.) Meanwhile the number of police cars (and scooters, ha!) kept multiplying until I figured the only logical next step would be to get a helicopter in on the action.

For those of you who can't stomach violence (or police inadequacy) they do eventually shoot and kill the guy at the end, but it took them long enough.

Well, you have to admit, the nut didn't drive any worse than anyone else; he even stopped at a few traffic lights. Of course, with the Keystone Kops on his trail, he didn't have much to lose.

What did the guy do? The probably pumped about US$5,000 in lead into his car (and later, him). Was it worth the drain on the public treasury?

I thought it was funny early on in the chase when the old guy on the Moped overtakes the entire group.
