Warren Olney on WWLA tonight explored a hot button topic, the new LAPD impound policy
If you don’t have a license who gets the car?
The city of Los Angeles impounds the cars of unlicensed drivers for up to 30 days – which costs an average of $2,000.00. Mayor Villaraigosa and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck want to end that practice. But the police rank and file say that would endanger public safety. As we’ll hear it’s all about the lives and livelihoods of illegal immigrants – who aren’t allowed to get the licenses in the first place. Warren Olney
Warren’s guests: Hernan Vera – President of Public Counsel, which provides free legal services to the public.
