No Wrongdoing

An unnamed woman was at a nursing home on Thursday. Some reports say she worked there, and some say she was a contractor delivering supplies.

Allegedly she was working when her ex-boyfriend Allen Speed confronted her. Allegedly he began punching her  and kicking her. An eyewitness has reported that “The guy was beating this girl. He had her on the ground, was dragging her by the hair, kicking her in the head, kicking her in the face.”

At that point the witness reported that he jumped on Speed’s back and tried to stop him. The witness then stated that Speed took off. The nursing home administrator followed him and via cell phone, kept in touch with dispatchers letting them know of the direction until police could catch up with the chase.

Police say the chase involved 3 cities and reached high speeds, exceeding 75 miles per hour. They also allege that at some point Speed almost struck a pedestrian before he bailed out of the car. He was captured a short time later.

The woman was taken to the hospital with severe trauma, but is expected to survive.

Speed has been charged with battery, eluding police, and strong armed robbery. Allegedly Speed took the ex-girlfriend’s cell phone. Reportedly Speed has denied any wrong doing and told police that he fled because he is on probation for child abuse and neglect.

There were eyewitnesses. At least one of the witnesses was close enough to try to stop the attack. A second witness chased the person. And the suspect then flees from police. And he says he didn’t do anything wrong, he only fled from police because he was on probation- for child abuse and neglect! Am I the only one who doesn’t find him really believable?

    You know how every year in Jan. they come out with a list of words that should be banned???? I am going to campaign to have “alleged” removed.
    I am so fed up with PC rhetoric.
    I hope they have enough on him to put him way til he is about 99.

    You know the saying “Innocent until proven guilty”. And since every now and then they do get one on trial who it turns out probably wasn’t guilty- then we are just going to have to live with it. Still, my personal opinion is this guy isn’t going to be a good example to point to as possibly innocent.
