No New Truck for Women Shot During Dorner Manhunt
#1
Quote:The two newspaper delivery women who were shot at during the manhunt for Christopher Dorner will not be getting a new replacement truck as promised by the LAPD, according to their attorney Glen Jonas.

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.



Police said it was a "case of mistaken identity" that prompted officers to open fire on the women. Beck later apologized and promised to replace their truck, now riddled with bullet holes.

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.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Why these women are not in the process of suing the ever loving shit out of the LAPD, I cannot fathom.

I'd also start seeing a psychiatrist too over "emotional trauma". I would go for every penny I could get from these trigger happy thugs.

Agreed. Additionally, why the LAPD isn't bending over backwards to please them is equally unfathomable.

Targeted for no rational reason, shot at, truck ruined, physical injury(s), and I'm thinking even a law student could get these women a staggering award.

The lawsuit will in my mind be forthcoming, but the City of LA and its
PD know they are wrong. So, that leaves the back door open to
"settle out of court". Let us wait and see shall we. The insurance carrier
probably has been "crunching the numbers" as to what they will offer as
a settlement.

It's really very simple:

If the truck is a "gift," they have to pay taxes on it.

If the truck is "settlement" for harm done to them, then it is non-taxable.

It is in everyone's interest for the ladies to file a claim with the city, and come up with a "settlement" which gives them a new truck, to compensate for the loss of the old one, pain and suffering, etc.

Now if various parties "donate" to the city to help defray some of that, well that's a tax DEDUCTION for those parties.

Same result; they get a new truck that was nicer than the old truck.

Of course, all in all they'd probably just as soon not to have been shot for no reason.

Well, I sure wouldn't want to pay taxes on a vehicle if it was owed to me because they ruined my first one.....that's not really that fair. Maybe they had the first one paid off and a tight budget....

Like I said before, I'd spray paint "LAPD tried to KILL ME!" on that thing and drive it every day.

The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.

which begs the question, where is the shot up truck?
the fabrication doesn't stop in the shop, that's what the field guys are for.
