So how long until the cop lover brigade comes into to say the cops aren't at fault?

Makes sense.  It was only a day or two ago here on Fark some poor SOB's luggage was cleared of having  explosives, but they blew it up any.

The man was clearly unhappy with his iPhone after the iOS7 upgrade, so he concocted this story as a way to get rid of the phone, have insurance cover the loss, and then buy the Galaxy S4.  The cops are on to this sort of thing, so they confiscated his car so find the inevitable Samsung Holiday Catalog hidden beneath the seats.

I am trying to justify this, fingerprints?  Gunmen barfed on car?

Then again how hard is it to pull fingerprints or put physical matter in a bag.


Sounds like cops doing everything they can to make their life easy and others difficult.

Well..nobody expects their car to be impounded when they are robbed at gunpoint

Well, it ain't gonna be me.

I really can't understand the thinking of "impound the car for evidence."  Isn't that like seazing an entire store when it gets robbed?  It's evidence!!

OK, I'll bite.  Since this is a short news story and not an offense report, there is a chance that maybe one of the suspects touched the car.  And maybe the best place to take fingerprints is in a controlled environment instead of the side of the road.  And maybe when they are done processing it for evidence they will give it right back to him.  Do you have any information to the contrary?

Near the "L" St exit on norhtbound I-5 in Chula Vista?  More like an APB for a Nguyen or Bahn.....if it were southbound, you could insert Hernandez or Martinez

officers impounded his car as evidence a way to get kickbacks from the local towing and storage company.

That's my thinking.  For safety reasons, they didn't want to process the car on the side of the freeway.  He'll get it back no charge (I hope).

I'm surprised they impounded his car. The victim doesn't even look black.

Yeah, maybe they'll give it back, and maybe I'll get a sloppy BJ from a supermodel tonight..

On top of that, it's likely the owner of the vehicle gave them permission and/or he's going to get a replacement vehicle through his insurance for the time being.

In CA, when a car is impounded for "evidence", the owner of the car has to pay to get it out of impound, regardless of the reason the car was taken for evidence.

Are they going to put the entire car in one of those vapor superglue bubbles?

Maybe they will have a technician pull prints or something.

\Sorry, being a wiseguy.

And based on the oil from the fingerprints they will track the offender based on his job and eventually nab that person for planning a terrorist plot.

You do realize that when women are raped they submit to a rape kit, right?  So in a way you are correct.  So does everyone on this thread believe that if there were fingerprints on the car that the police should have not done anything?
 
2013-09-26 02:17:10 PM
So his Jetta was sitting immobilized, and the thieves were driving a Civic.  I'm sensing a theme here.  He should have tried to flag down a Citation, I bet there'd've been decent law-abiders inside.
 
2013-09-26 02:17:29 PM
well they can't just leave a car on the side of the road...even if it wasn't being processed as evidence you can't just leave cars sitting on a freeway shoulder. those things sit there for an hour or two max, and for good reason.

but hey, don't let common sense get in the way of your blind derping.

Below is the comment from another thread a few down, but it is just so perfect for everything wrong with American law enforcement.

scottydoesntknow
They do subby, but it's a power trip for the cop. It's obviously not a thrill for him to have women intentionally take their clothes off.
Same reason that rapists rape instead of buying a hooker or an escort. It's more about exerting power.
 
2013-09-26 02:19:25 PM
Maybe I've had too many beers, but I still don't understand why the car was impounded as evidence. Something has to be missing from the article.

On the basis that he probably won't is why I would say this is ridiculous. While I do tend to support the police, they are going to charge him out the ass for towing and storage fees. That's exactly what happened to me when I had my car stolen in Englewood, Colorado, but recovered in Denver. Denver sheriff, even though I was the victim, charged me about $200 for a tow to the pound and one night of storage fees. Thankfully Englewood PD notified me that morning instead of 4-5 days later or I wouldve probably told the impound to suck it, they can keep the car if they were going to kick me while I was down.

An hour or two? Maybe Chula Vista PD and the associated towing companies are much more vigorous than the places I've lived, but I've usually seen cars given at least a day or two to be recovered before they are towed somewhere. They usually slap some kind of sticker on there for what I assume is how many days it has been in place. I've never seen more than three on a car on a highway shoulder.
 
2013-09-26 02:31:05 PM
And it will cost him $1500 to get his $500 car out of impound once the cops are done taking it apart.

That will teach him for calling 911 and making the cops leave the donut shop and actually take a report!

Fingerprinting kit is pretty much standard gear with any mobile police unit.  Takes about 10 minutes tops.

That sucks, first he gets victimized by the crooks, then again by the cops.  And then cops wonder why they are so disliked.

I can only speak to what I've seen....My experience is with the freeways in the SF bay area...broken down or empty cars on the shoulder on major freeways do not last long once stickered by CHP around here. On bridges and such it's down to minutes when CHP tow trucks are involved. Having driven it frequently to LA, its rare to see cars on the 5 (which is where this happened) just sitting on the side of the road for any extended period of time.

lol wow are you stupid

stupid would be allowing cars to sit stationary for as long as they needed while sitting a few feet away from auto traffic and semi trucks zipping by. speaking of traffic, go play in it.
