    Did Wendy Eat too many paint chips when she was little? Seriously ! Nowhere in the story did they mention that the police car had it’s lights and siren on. Or did they even mention the speed. It’s very possible that the Range Rover ran a red light or (if lights and siren were on) failed to yeild to the emergency vehicle.
    Don’t make assumptions.

      I agree Bruno…Wendy is putting two and two together and coming up with five, the extra one being her bias.

  2. C.B. says:

    And then there are you two assuming its the lady’s fault. Maybe it IS the cops fault. It does not mention anywhere whos fault it was.

    No, I’m sure those pigs were at fault. They drive recklessly all over Inglewood. endangering the lives of anyone in the streets when they get a call. Ive seen it for years. To be honest I’m surprised they haven’t killed more drivers & pedestrians. They need to shut down that corrupt station and put REAL cops on duty. Not this fake trigger happy cops that beat up on kids on a daily basis. The Inglewood police Dept. is a JOKE

  4. GG says:

    The Inglewood P D is a danger to itself and others. They needed to be disbanded for the good of all.

  5. Frank says:

    Mr Inglewood why do you try patrolling the streets of this city, see how you do?

  6. Southbay cop says:

    Funny thing is that they drive fast because we are doing it to help others. He go to help people we don’t even know. When we show up they disregard us and are against us. People say to disband and they are corrupt but they have with open arms let in any investigation and have over come it with flying colors. No one ever writes about how the gangster messed up or how they are corrupt. You guys only lash out on the good people.

    finger pointing and bias opinion’s only make matter’s worst , rather than going that route it’s a lot easier to pray for our city and it’s resident’s …… lord know’s we need it …….

    Victims of crimes by thugs are grateful for your courageous work. The investigation will detail the accident.

    A chick was involved, she was at fault.
    it’s not rocket surgery.

  10. cindy says:

    There was a news story on the radio this morning and it was mentioned the police had their sirens on. There was a witness to the accident.
    I don’t know enough about the Inglewood police to comment on them……but if I had a dollar for everytime some idiot doesn’t pull over for a siren or red lights flashing, I’d be a millionaire.

  11. Related says:

    Sorry, my sister isn’t “a chick” and she wasn’t at fault. Speed kills!!! The shooting had already taken place and there were no cops injured. Those thrill seekers were just trying to get in on the action.

    1. Mr. Doe says:

      Yup, for sure it was the cops fault for blowing through the red light at 60 mph.

  12. concerned says:
