May be the only time that videotaping the TV screen turned out well.

IAt the start of the video he is at crossing Hawthorne Boulevard / South La Brea Avenue while traveling westbound on West Century Boulevard.

You can confirm that building shows up in the video at 0:06 and continue to follow the car westbound on Century.

You can follow it past a liquor store on the south side, and a gas station on the south side, and at 0:26 you can find the pink adult store on the north side, and there is really only one tree that large on the block.

The video is delayed somewhat, but there is a clue in the windows at 0:35 as to where the video is being taken.

It's here:

I would think 3D in this case means the car came crashing through the living room.

jaylectricity: GAT_00: Rincewind53: May be the only time that videotaping the TV screen turned out well.

It's a little suspicious, though supposedly this guy was doing laps of the area.

The news announcer sounded like he was describing the repeated actions of the driver. Like, "He does this each time, slows down right after the light ... then gets in the wrong lane of traffic..".


So the video was set up but a police roadblock wasn't?

lewismarktwo: RoyBatty: ...

Why do you think it's not the place, and where do you think the place is?

There's a lot of very similar architecture around there. If you look closely you can see the distances of things like the low wall don't match up.


I think the low wall is seen at 0:35.

Enhance 0:28 to 0:36
Pan left and pull back, Stop
Pull back, Wait a minute, Go right, Stop
Give me a hard copy right there.

Have you located the building I claim the video was taken from on Google Maps yet? If not, do so.

Then look on the video at 0:35 for more evidence and confirm by exiting street view on Google Maps into map view.

Watch 0:28 to 0:36.

Pull back, enhance.

lohphat: Krieghund: AverageAmericanGuy: Why the hell would anyone video tape their TV?

Because you live on a major street in Inglewood and you know there is a pretty good chance the chase you're watching on TV is going to go past your window.

Still, cool video.

I bet you he heard the sirens in the distance and saw the live (delayed by a few seconds) telecast and flicked his camera on and the rest was history.


Probably the helicopter. When they are circling it alerts the whole neighborhood.

Tumunga: that's kind of phuqed up, having to live in a house with that safety wire glass in the windows.


It doesn't look like a house to me. More like a nursing home or something that has a TV room. There aren't even real curtains on the windows.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: This was farking staged. Why exactly was he filming the TV? This is LA we're talking about. Some dumbass probably got involved in this high speed pursuit on purpose in order to get his friend to film it like that.


I'm sure everyone has a friend that will go to jail just so that they can post a 40 second video to you tube.

MrDon: When I was in college in the late 80's in Miami I lived off campus in a small room. I used to listen to a scanner as Dade County was chock full of crime and made for great listening. One night I was listening to a high-speed chase where the suspects were shooting from their car at the police chasing them. They were headed to the very spot I was at. When they were two blocks away I went over to the window to watch them go by. Just then as I could hear the sirens, the thought hit me, "These guys are shooting guns and there are bullets flying all over the place and now I am standing behind a piece of glass! I chose to move back behind the cinder block wall and let them go by. As it turned out when they were just one block away they turned and never passed by. It did not turn out well for the bad guys. One was captured and the second one fatally shot himself in the head.


A scanner was better than cable back then.

mikeandike76 3 minutes ago
clearly he's in a hotel or something (reflection at 0:40 shows a baggage cart) not his home

utsagrad123: It shouldn't be too hard to find out where this guy lives then.  I'm sure random people on the internet paying him a visit, couldn't turn out bad.


You'll notice the car was not in the process of turning when the convoy came into view outside the window. TV stations do these things on a delay ever since some guy or three died on the air. Maybe someone who recorded the chase might figure it out. Odds are low.
