    I've Seen This Before...

    The driver's name was Terry...and this is where the term Terry Stop comes from...and the tape clearly shows that Terry did eventually stop...

    Man, that is right out of the movies.

    Hope the cop got a commendation or something for it.

    That's utterly priceless! I love the dry sarcasm that the narrator uses.

    Pretty cool. Don't think it's from Germany, though.

    No candy coating during that stop. The narration is simple and accurate. The police "notify the felon of their presence" and "negotiate with the driver face-to-face." The driver "turne[ed] himself in." Yup. Very effective.

    I'd say UK, but that isn't right based on the response. Somewhere they drive on the wrong side of the road and sit on the wrong side of the vehicle though. The commentary is great.

    Yeah, after thinking 'bout it... I don't think its German, either. Possibly someplace in the Balkans or the Baltic...

    One thing is for sure...European cops make US. cops look like sissies, but we all can thank American lawyers and political correctness for that one.

    Anyone else catch that he ran himself over when he bailed? You can see when he first hits the ground it looks like the last foot or so of his leg is in front of hte rear tire, then mysteriously the bed of the truck on the right side raises about 6-8 inches and drops back down.
    Kinda funny actually. Guess he had it coming. Definitely a gutsy move by the cop.

    Not the Polizei, that I can tell you. They are very no-nonsense, but they would never conduct themselves like that. They are very disciplined and self-controlled. I would also suspect it to be somewhere in the Balkans, as it is not uncommon to see British lefthandside drive vehicles down there...

    Cheers! M2
