This is something that you just have to see to believe, a 12 year old kid in an SUV leads cops on a wild chase in the city of Las Cruces, New Mexico, last month. This is an indication as to just how far our society has fallen morally.
Newly released body and dashcam footage shows a 12-year-old boy who led Doña Ana County sheriff’s deputies on a wild pursuit on September 12, 2021.Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle to no avail and a pursuit occurred through residential areas.
At one point during the chase, the vehicle stopped and 4 boys exited the vehicle and the driver continued back through the motel parking lot then across the K-Mart parking lot. The chase eventually came to an end when the stolen SUV headed down a road in the wrong direction, colliding head-on with a minivan.

The 12-year-old driver had ammunition for a 9mm handgun in his possession, which led to deputies finding a handgun that had been thrown out of the moving vehicle. As paramedics arrive, deputies began to question the 12-year-old who is seen on video crying the whole time.
The boy told deputies ‘it wasn’t his fault’ and claims the kids that were in the SUV forced him to drive. Officers then raced to get those kids into custody. The 12-year-old boy was not injured.
Officials said the driver of the other vehicle involved in the head-on crash was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. There were children in the victim’s car as well.
The sheriff’s department says the 12-year-old was booked into the Doña Ana County Detention Center on an outstanding warrant for conspiracy to commit burglary of a vehicle, in addition to aggravated fleeing of law enforcement and receiving or transferring a stolen motor vehicle.
“It wasn’t my fault”, boy-oh-boy, it’s not like I haven’t heard that one before as a parent! This is what happens when folks don’t discipline their kids and let them run wild. My hope is that they catch the other kids and nail their little butts to the wall as well.
