That's cause back in the 50's and 60's, towns were smaller, there were fewer patrol cars to go around, and people knew their cops by name. Had there been some foresight exercised and the dad actually knew somebody, it might have been different.

>But Comstock was running stop signs, racing through a red light, weaving through narrow city streets at speeds approaching 70 mph, ramming police cars and narrowly missing both pedestrians and other vehicles, the video shows.
