    This is ridiculous - crushing cars

    I have heard that California does these things, but the idea makes no sense.



    They could part this car out and make a killing - instead they turn it into scrap and sell it as metal?

    Or sell the entire thing and make a killing; not that my bankrupt/near bankrupt state could ever see the good in doing that.

    I know many law enforcment agencies were threatening to seize and destroy vehicles if you were caught street racing, but I never actually saw proof of one going into the crusher. Wow.

    I just died a little on the inside, they need to focus on more serious things rather then wasting time on stuff like this. What a waste of a car and money.

    I would think even a semi-decent lawyer could prevent that?

    What, this happens all based on what some cop with a hard-on for his authority says?

    That's absurd, ridiculous really. The penalty for street racing should not be loss of $60k. It makes no sense.

    How about the state takes the money from sales of these cars to open some more tracks? How about that?

    I really don't understand crushing even if it was a reasonable punishment(which it isn't). Sell it and keep the money or if its a conflict of interest/deemed a cash grab - just donate the proceeds to charity.

    It's absolutely absurd and an over reaction. They should be crushing murders and child rapists, not the cars of people contributing to the economy.

    For the sake of all that is holy, did they at least pull the motor before they crushed it?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    "This Video has been grossly mislabeled by the poster..

    The original video is from 10 months ago by a different user... STREET RACING is not the reason for this IS-F's crushing. It's a corporate demo car, that can never be registered with DMV.."
