— A man accused of hitting a Raleigh police officer with a car last month was arrested Friday in Johnston County, police said.

Oscar Lamont Vick, 25, was taken into custody at about 7:30 a.m. at a Days Inn motel in Selma, police said.

A group of police officers was for looking for a suspect in an unrelated crime on May 7 when the driver of a sedan struck one of them in the 400 block of North West Street. The officer was not seriously injured, police said.

The driver hit a taxicab about a block away, police said, and the car was found wrecked and abandoned a short time later at the intersection of North West Street and Wade Avenue.

    "Good, but I'm sure he will be let out to hurt somebody again. That's a guarantee actually."

    Probably already is.

    Wilkow - "Good, but I'm sure he will be let out to hurt somebody again. That's a guarantee actually."

    You're probably right on that.

    Society has turned totally upside down since the lily-livered started sticking up for criminals.

    Now the criminals are protected and treated link royalty, while the rest of society is treated like they're in the wrong for wanting to be protected from the criminals.

    Makes no sense.
