    Was this a real-life GTA mission gone horribly wrong, or what?
    California man gets pulled over and decides to run from the cops. At some point in the chase, he drives through the gate at Naval Air Station Lemoore (near Fresno) and winds up on the flight line, where he crashes into a parked F/A-18E fighter jet. His passenger was killed in the wreck, and he died later on from his injuries.

    That guy doesn't own that plane. The taxpayers do.

    I wonder what percentage of motorists who try to flee cops actually get away.

    Thread title is pure spin.

    "Fighter jet kills civilian motorist, passenger."

    In the old days, it was kind of fun how some newspapers would try to be creative with headlines.

    But the purposely misleading, clickbaiting Web headlines just make me angry.

    If they hit it hard enough to kill them both, I wonder how much damage it did to the jet.

    And the real fucking blame here is with the idiot -- probably some contract rent-a-cop -- attempting to secure a fucking military installation. Fire them fuckers, time now.

    Hell, it wasn't even a car - it was an SUV.
