  1. let them there should be perks for working in the LAPD it's a stressful job as it is I understand there needs to be Integrity but at the same time these officers need some breaks and I think helping them this way helps a lot

  2. I used to hold these guys to a higher standard but im not suprised anymore, thats the least they get away with on the daily basis. They know they doing wrong obviously but they just dont care because nobody holds them accountable.

  3. That explains why they are having lapd citizen patrols with those cars now, private citizens can drive them around for the lapd like neighborhood watch, they're trying to rack up the mileage so they can get a new fleet.

  4. Citizens could use those electric vehicles to carpool stricktly to work and lock them up at a charging location once done. Or something! Anything but this stingy sh

  5. This is bs! They've already equipped the motorcycle cops with BMW Motorcycles. It's funny that cops get paid the salaries they do. All they do is take advantage of the people.

  6. With all these cameras police have giving up, they signed up to have power and abuse it but thanks to technology their scheme's can no longer go unnoticed, i love how this news anchor is straight up with us

  7. Yes folks…this is the most important thing happening in LA today… Repeat after me— fake news !!!!

  8. Lol shady. At least answer the questions and say my boss let me do it. Looks worse when you don't answer.

  9. So, the cars were given to the LAPD for staff use. If the cars are under used then let'em drive it.

  10. Sure of course they get new stuff but the roads are garbage and the homeless are about to takeover. Great use of taxes

  11. Once again you whole city council City officials accountable the people that we elect to run this city the mayor supervisors all need to be held accountable

  12. What’s new, public servants always milk the taxpayer. Idiots finally found out.

  13. I can't blame the police psychologist for wanting to use the electric car, just look at the big chevy pick-up he drives around!

  14. LAPD buys electric cars.

    Electric cars underused

    LAPD uses them

    Public: "Oh my God no this is outrageous ok."

  15. If these are underused shouldn't they drive them? Wtf. They were a waste from day one anyways when the news told about their purchase. And for the news to report this and la having so much more serious stuff going on speaks loads about the news.

  16. Ok, so the cars they have aren’t even being used, they are almost brand new, and the ones that are being used are being used for personal purposes…. yet they are negotiating a new fleet with BMW… WTF?

  17. this why I don't work stop working!! I'm on strike. they ain't gating my hard earned money but they're all going to hell anyway so….

  18. they are lazy wasteful thieves and don't even protect the citizens anymore who pay their salaries. Fuck lapd. I laugh now when they get shot or killed.
