I'm sure the ad buyers were pleased to have a Dodge Summer Clearance ad to showing people in L.A. fleeing from giant monsters n' Dodges lead into KCAL 9's security camera photos of people in Venice fleeing in terror of a killer Dodge Chsarger

Oh when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire proof
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
With my foot on the accelerator is where I'll be

My niece lives in Venice Beach.  Fortunately, she's visiting her mother right now so no chance she was caught in that mess.  I hope some Venice locals catch the person/people responsible and beat the holy fark out of them.

Given the placement of multiple cameras on the car, it's some douche who thought it would be funny to post a video on liveleak showing people getting run over.  This is premeditated murder.

I'm pretty confident the supposed cameras are reflections from something like a light pole.

Also, I don't see cameras on the picture of the parked car (#3 on this LA Times slideshow).

Driver turned himself in, but the authorities aren't identifying him or even admitting the make of the car, so he might be "connected" or wealthy?  Not sure if anyone important would be driving an Avenger, though.

Are they certain the parked car is the one involved?

As for the cameras.  You are correct, it could be reflection.

Still, plowing through crowds of people is not something a normal person does.  If he wasn't suffering from some kind of medical emergency, e.g. a stroke, then he is a psycho.

Apparently some guy who witnessed the event saw into the car during the rampage, and the guy was smiling...   This might be one of those extreme dumb-ass moments where he did not think the consequences through until after he had done the damage...  And then he turned himself in.  I bet he is not smiling right now...

How the hell do you even get out that far at Venice Beach with a car? There's condos lining the entire beach and only tiny alleyways to get through.

Although, I could see his getting frustrated with the lack of parking there.

Nah - there's plenty of places you can drive onto the OFW - there have to be for cops, ambulance, deliveries, etc. You can drive onto it from the Speedway right there at Dudley where this happened.

But it's bicycles we need to be concerned about.
 
2013-08-04 10:43:27 AM
As someone who used live in Venice Beach and would easily walk to the boardwalk I would like to note that Saturday at 6:00 PM would be a time when the beach goers would become increasingly more black. (I don't know why that happened but it may be relevant here)

I would walk there via Windward and that area usually was densest in people. If the driver wanted to hit people why did he enter at the north end near Rose which generally has fewer people (that is unless he thought that would help him get up to speed)?

I drove through once, and ended up in this narrow alleyway that ran parallel to the beach, but there were no obvious outlets to the beach. At some point, I remember a larger road that went down to the beach area, but very little parking anywhere near there.

Of course, I was just passing through, so this is only the perception of a visitor.
