Have any of you ever played any Grad Theft Auto games? If you have then you would know that if you were getting chased by police then you should keep driving as fast as you can and don’t look back. Does that translate well in real life? For the most part, not really.
However, if you are driving late at night on an empty Mississippi highway that could actually be your best option. Last week there have been two very eerie murders on Mississippi highways that have resulted in two separate murders.
Both cases involve cars pulled over to the side of the road and the driving being shot to death along an unlit, deserted highway late at night. The two victims have no relation and so far the murders seem random. The most chilling theory in these two murders is the theory that the assailant is driving a police cruiser posing as a police officer. The victims would see the flashing lights and believing the car to be a real police officer, they would pull over wondering what they did wrong and probably expecting just a ticket and a fine… Instead they got a bullet in the head.
Authorities in Mississippi are now telling the public to call 911 when a police cruiser wants you to pull over, as you are pulling over call 911 on the police to confirm that the cruiser that’s behind you is actually the police! They are also advising to only pull over in well lit and populated areas.
The fact that people pull over so easily shows how much trust we have in the police and how scary it is when that trust is used for crime…
