Shocking moment 5ft 2in baby-faced joyrider, 18, who could barely see over the steering wheel slammed his car into a policeman as he is jailed for four years (2 Pics)

Kash Parkinson was so small he could barely see over the steering wheel of the Phantom

Defiant thug Kash Parkinson, 18, is so small he can barely see over the steering wheel of the luxury Phantom supercar.

The 5ft 2ins tearaway stretched and yawned loudly as he was jailed for four-years at Manchester Crown Court yesterday.
The court heard the unrepentant car-obsessed teen had amassed 47 previous convictions for 77 crimes from the age of 11, including twice assaulting police officers as well as robbery, violence, theft of vehicles and flouting court orders.
His defence barrister told the court Parkinson had “one of the worst starts in life I have seen” and is “extremely immature” for his age.
The judge said he accepted what the teen's barrister said, but added that “there comes a time when the public has to be protected”.
Magistrates put Parkinson on youth rehabilitation schemes and banned him from his regular haunts and associating with other yobs – but he just ignored a two-year criminal behaviour order.
When he was placed in a care home away from his family, he threatened to shoot and stab his care workers. 
He also posted bragging pictures of himself smoking suspicious-looking cigarettes on social media and even has his own name spelt in cannabis leaves.
But today, Parkinson was starting four years in jail after he mowed down and injured a policeman trying to detain him over a 70mph pursuit. 
He had been on bail at the time over another police chase in a different stolen car.

Minshull Street Crown Court in Manchester heard he tried to shake off a patrol at speeds of over 70mph in a stolen 
Ford Fiesta which he had fitted with false plates.
During the three-minute chase on June 28 this year, Parkinson drove on the wrong side side of a dual carriageway at 3.40am before ramming into an oncoming HGV.
PC Christopher Haxby, who was in pursuit, jumped out and tried to grab Parkinson but the teenager reversed the Fiesta and propelled the officer backwards into the bonnet of the police car.
Despite his head hitting the windscreen, PC Haxby bravely got back to his feet and managed to open the Fiesta door and drew his Taser to detain Parkinson.
The officer suffered whiplash and back pain and had to take time off work.
In the earlier incident, Parkinson and a group of friends stole a disabled man's Renault Scenic along with his disability scooter which was in the boot.
Police chased him again and blocked in the stolen car in a suburban street where children were playing – but 
Parkinson drove up onto the pavement, narrowly missing a child, before driving off at speed and losing the officers.
The Renault was found days later completely written off, and the disability scooter was also damaged to the stage it was deemed “redundant”.
In court, Parkinson yawned and stretched his arms over-dramatically. He admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm, aggravated vehicle taking, dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified and twice breaching a criminal behaviour order.
Judge Mark Savill told him: “You have shown a lack of respect for the police and a lack of remorse and you have expressed no desire to change. 
“So I must put the protection of the public and a punishment for you first.”
He added: “You're just 18 but have an appalling record and and the footage of the pursuit I have seen is truly chilling. Many people have the good sense to lie when they say they want to change their ways, but you have no idea. 
“That police officer could have been killed because of your selfishness. It is a wonder how you didn't kill or seriously injure a member of the public or a police officer. 
“I know you have difficulties in your life but you have indicated a lack of remorse and have expressed no desire to change.”
Parkinson was also disqualified from driving for five years. 
His lawyer Mark Fireman said: “This is somebody who has had one of the worst starts in life. He has been left with many difficulties. 
“He is physically immature, and emotionally extremely immature. He has been in care for many years. He has had minimal parental input.
“This young man's record is appalling but he just hasn't grown up yet emotionally.”
