Last week, Fort Worth police chased 24-year-old Jose Garcia from near Hulen Mall in Fort Worth all the way to the Dallas Zoo, damned near, after he allegedly stole a GMC pick-up from an apartment complex parking lot. You might have read about it, but thanks to the YouTubes, you can ride shotgun in the front seat of the police cruiser that chased Garcia through 40 miles of the DFW. Buckle up. --Robert Wilonsky
