No New Truck for Women Shot During Dorner Manhunt

"It has been more than a month since LAPD Chief Charlie Beck promised the truck to Emma Hernandez, 71, and her daughter, Margie Carranza, who had been working in Torrance, Calif. before dawn on Feb. 7."...

...According to Jonas, LAPD and Galpin Ford wanted his clients to pose for a photo opportunity and pay income tax on the truck. The women no longer want the truck after they were told they needed to fill out a 1099 form for the donation, Jonas said Monday.

"You tried to murder the woman, now you're telling her she can't have a four-wheel drive, you're telling her she can't sell it and you've got to be taxed on it?" Jonas said. "How would anyone react to that?"

Jonas plans on filing a government claim, which is a precursor to any lawsuit filed against a government agency. He said he felt the truck was being touted as a "reward or prize" instead of a sincere gesture by the LAPD.

Galpin Ford estimates the value of the truck – a 2013 Ford 150 SuperCrew – at $32,560. The dealership had planned on paying the sales tax, vehicle registration and title on the truck, according to a dealership spokesperson.

"It's really sad for us because we want to help these women move on with their lives, and help them move forward with that, we just can't get past the 1099 issue," LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said. "The government has to take their bite out of it, I guess."

It's exactly like winning a truck on The Price Is Right, I guess, aside from a few piddling details like the barrage of bullets.

Oh, they are gonna get theirs, alright. They're gonna be able to afford to buy trucks for everyone on that paper route when all is said and done if that lawyer does his job. Which means RgrF and I are gonna pay for that truck.

Just when you think the LAPD couldn't get any lower. Those bastards should be in jail. Not suspended. Not shifted around to another job somewhere. In jail.

They won't win a lawsuit. It seems like the bad cops always slither away.

But they were protectin' and servin' the public when they shot up the women and the neigborhood....

Insurance ? I don't think you have to pay taxes on an insurance settlement.

It's not income, even if a 1099 is issued.

LAPD behavior is only validating Doner's manifesto.



SoCal for now.

What he says does have a ring of truth doesn't it?

NEWS FLASH: LAPD agreed to pay the women $40,000 in cash! Chief Beck said he is not doing this to do it right but to do it better. Wonder how the women actually get after paying a helft fee to their lawyer.



SoCal for now.

More than a ring. I doubt there are many out there, =especially= in law enforcement, that didn't take Dorner's account of the events leading up to his firing at face value.
