Ouch... he/she deserved it for racing on the streets.

They should've parted it out and make some bucks for the cash strapped state. Then crush the chassis.

This video does help support why California is in a deficit – they crush money and throw it away instead of making money... so lame to destroy a vehicle like that.

That video was actually one of the first IS F Lexus brought over for test drives etc. By law the cars have to be crushed because of registrations, vin,parts,etc. There was a link about this earlier.

Oh yea, lets (in california) legalize marijuana so we can tax people and have a bunch of junkies walking around eventually like in some countries and cities, but if you street race, well destroy your 60k dollar car that you probablly worked to get it for years.. jmmm

But this $60K was NOT crushed for street racing.......


Someone just posted this on the Fake Video Uploader's Comments... Finally more people are paying attention!!

FAKE! That was a t-ten (toyota tech school) demo car that the students took apart and put back together dozens of times. They can't sell them. After going through what they went through, they are unsafe. Look at the windshield. It clearly states "t-ten". Please LIKE this comment to help stop idiots from spreading propaganda via YouTube.
Thank You.
We also HAVE to fix this threads title to stop the INSANITY..!!

Border patrol murders more cars and trucks what they do is insane. Cannot setup a deal with a scrap yard and sell parts seems illogical. The money from parts alone could fund more dogs or more agents. NOPE we just toss them away grind them into pieces.
They take the dash a part with a crow bar. I've seen some awfully nice vehicles get trashed. It probably takes more time to do it that way. More fun sure.....
I just find it silly when there are budget crunches. I get some of them might still have drugs in them, but most don't. They could set up a place where a border agent works there to watch. Car parts is a huge business. Plus a lot of them are Mexican cars. Why not.

They had the Lexus on the news as a street racer that got crushed. Wow, wonder if they know?

Sadly NO... The news reporters will also report on a Viral Video with a FAKE Title....

The only way to solve it is to report the Video as a Fake and post in his comments that the poster has fake titled the original video from 10 months ago...
