These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

And again, last Tuesday:

Police say it started as a routine fugitive warrant arrest Tuesday afternoon, but quickly turned into a high speed chase through the streets of Tulsa.
Officers say the chase started in north Tulsa and took them downtown where Hanthorn and Vantassel jumped out and ran before carjacking a woman.

"I don't know if this guy stole another car, but there's a Honda that just went the wrong way and it's northbound on Elgin," you can hear the officer saying on the police radio during the chase.
Police confirmed the car was stolen by Hanthorn and tried to stop him again, but they say he never stopped voluntarily, only when he crashed.

"The white car came down this way and the front right tire was blown out. It was going fast and making a bunch of noise and came up to this intersection and hit a car head on."

The Northern Oklahoma Violent Task Force was involved in the chase.


The "task force" bragged they had this guy under surveillance for weeks, but they wait till he goes to a crowded shopping center to do a military-style takedown.
Is it ego or just bad judgement?

Why are you so quick to blow everything out of context?   The article states "Detectives had received information that Hamm was staying in Owasso and had been running surveillance on him. On Friday, they located him and followed him to a Lowe’s in the city, Roberts said."

How is this weeks?

Then is goes on to say "Authorities approached Hamm in his vehicle after he exited the store. He surrendered and was taken into custody without incident, Roberts said."

How is this a military style take-down?  Shouldn't that involve humvees and rockets?   At the least it should involve helicopters.

The Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force told FOX23 Hamm's arrest followed weeks of surveillance ... had since been "updated".
