Allentown Police Looking For Michael Louis Serrano

My thanks to Kim Beitler, for forwarding this Allentown Police Department advisory.

On Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 10:45 PM Allentown Police Vice & Intelligence Officers were conducting a drug investigation in the area of Ridge & Tilghman Street. Officer Evan Weaver stopped a vehicle that vice officers observed engaged in drug activity. As Officer Weaver approached the vehicle, the vehicle accelerated striking the officer and then dragging for several feet.

A vehicle chase occurred and the occupants abandoned the vehicle in the area of Spruce & Liberty Streets.

The passenger of the vehicle was apprehended after a short foot chase, the driver is still at large.
Officer Weaver was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and released.

The driver has been identified as Michael Louis Serrano, Address Unknown. H/M/23. He is on wanted on the following charges:

Criminal Attempt at Homicide, Aggravated Assault, Simple Assault, Fleeing or attempting to elude, Recklessly Endangering, Possession of Small Amount of Controlled Substance, Reckless Driving and Disorderly Conduct.

If anyone has information on the whereabouts of Mr. Serrano, please contact the Allentown Police Department Communications Center at 610-437-7751, Criminal Investigations Unit at 610-437-7721, or the Crime Tip Line at 610-439-5911.

As in every criminal case the fact that an arrest has occurred or a complaint has been filed is merely an accusation; and the defendant, Michael Serrano is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Retired ASD teacher here.

Another of my former students. Very sad.

Yeah, I feel your disappointment. Last week, one of my former parolees made the papers for attempted homicide. It is a bit depressing for all the parties involved...

Peace, ~~Alex

"Another of my former students. Very sad."

Wow! This is tragic.

ASD, sorry to hear that. I take it by "another" it's not the first time, and that stinks even more.

Why the regret? I hope they catch the scumbag. He is the problem with Atown. Catch him lock him up with the other animals.
You want to take care of him, adopt him or marry him. The rest of us are pretty sick of these criminal bums.

Why the regret?

Because he is a human. He is apart of our humanity. He is a life. Life is precious. Hopefully, he will make something out of his.

We, as mankind, are only as strong as our weakest link. And the weight of the status of a country, is measured on how it treats its weakest and its malformed. I believe that this incurs our criminals and prisioners.

It is always sad to see a life go down the wrong path. The beauty of this democratic and free nation, is that each one of us, have a right to an education. In this country, the poorest of the poor have the same vote and sometimes the same opportunities, if not better, to educate themselves.

To see a life wasted is sad in any means. If this individual would have not turned to a life of crime, we would not have "to take care" of him now. Eventually, he will be property of the state. So now, we will ultimately adopt and marry him.

Peace be with you, ~~Alex

You are kidding right? All kids do not have equal opportunity in this country by a long shot.

Either way, lock this guy up and throw away the key.

Nothing is given to you. You have to work for it.

I have many friends that have dreamed the American Dream and attained it. I think, actually, The Honorable Mr. Phillips also qualifies for this.

Why do you think people of another country's origin emigrate to this country? How many of them have become doctors or obtained a better life for themselves? How many people in this country are better off than what their parents were.

I know times are bad. And hopefully these trying times won't last too long. But you have to strive and hope. If you give up, you might as well be put in a box and push up daisies.

There are still these opportunites in this country. You just have to go after them and perserve.

Peace be with you, ~~Alex

the guy is a scumbag and a drain on deceny society. Making excuses for these animals won't end the crimminal behavior.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Dude, we're ALL animals. I don't defend what this person allegedly did, especially since police officers risk their lives every day. I understsnd your frustration, but can we stop using language that dehumanizes us?

please the policeman was undercover, in a unmarked car and he was in street clothes. Also while infront of the judge the POLICE MAN changed his story 3x.

The ACCUSED gentalman, was a little high, and thought the man who attemped to what he was seeing "trap his car" was going to kill him. And in that frame of mind tried to what his perspective was to save his own life and get away. He never hit the cop w/ his vehicle.

Also, this man has gotten more time then convicted murderes.

He is a excellent inmate, in honnors, is learning a new education and getting his life back on track. This man should be released, I don't want my tax dollars paying for him. He is not a threat, and should be released.
