For one man in Tulsa, Oklahoma, there's no point in doing crime if you can't broadcast it live on Facebook for friends, family, and the whole world to see. 25-year-old John Pinney was a person who gave zero f*cks for Halloween, stealing a cop car and taking it out for a joyride, all while gleefully sharing his experience on Facebook Live.
Pinney was able to snag the police car Monday night, as the cops who were driving it left the keys in the ignition when they stopped off to grab a cup of coffee (classic), according to local news station News On 6. Easier than taking Halloween candy from a baby, Pinney hopped in the car, drove off, and started streaming.
At the start of the video, Pinney mentions a previous stint in jail. He then moves the camera to reveal the cop cars chasing him, and says "this is the shit I wanna go out to!" and starts to sing along to the song playing on the radio. Pinney was clearly exhilarated by his joyride, turning on the car's siren and yelling, "happy Halloween!"
The 25-year-old also seemed to think he might die during the ride, repeating this was what he "wanted to go down to," and saying that this was probably his "last video."
News On 6 reports that the chase lasted between 30 and 40 minutes, with a top speed of 120 miles per hour. At one point, Pinney used a police iPad that was in the car to stream the action, and responded to people who were watching it all happen on Facebook. When asked about the act of streaming crimes live on Facebook, Pinney responded, "I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier and use that Facebook Live at your trial to get a better conviction."
Police told News On 6 that Pinney is a felon and will probably face multiple charges for his stunt.
