A mother and daughter newspaper delivery team who were mistakenly shot by Los Angeles police hunting for a fugitive former cop will get a new pickup truck courtesy of the department.

LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith says the department's Chief Charlie Beck met with the women in their Torrance home Saturday to apologize and tell them he had arranged for someone to donate a new pickup truck.

The truck will be donated early this week, Smith said...

I would rather have the badges of the trigger happy cowboys in my hand than the keys to a new truck. In fact, driving around in a bullet ridden truck with a big sign "Thank, LAPD" would be better than burying the issue.

Aren’t these the same cops who think it’s too dangerous for Americans to own guns? It looks like the civilians need to hold a police gun buyback to get these dangerous weapons out of the hands of the police.

The keystone cop(s) should be the ones buying them a new vehicle, but more likely, it will be the tax payers who will take it in the shorts again.

You're scarred for life after you come within a whisker of losing your life and you they want to give you a new TRUCK???

You've go to be kidding me. What freaking idiot would think that would atone for that stupid trigger-happy mistake?

And on top of that, what does this mean? ...he arranged for someone to donate a new pickup truck. The PD isn't paying for it? He shook someone down to "donate" a new truck?

I really feel for those poor women and the unimaginable terror they went through. I hope they take the PD to the cleaners and heads roll.

I’m curious how the folks in Torrance feel about the LAPD running loose in their city. Haven’t heard anything about that. You’d think the Torrance Police Department would be displeased with this.

Did the "arrangement" include taxing someone?

Well, I can not say how I really feel. I would get booted. Some words about parentage, self procreating and recycling food. We are not happy. Kinda hits home when I drive down that street all the time in my darker blue Tacoma.

According to today’s LA Times, there were “at least seven” cops there when they lit up that pickup truck.

Seven cops, and no one thought to approach for ID, or literally light up the truck with a spotlight to see what color it really was, etc.

The entire LAPD should be under investigation now, from the top on down.

Don’t know what is more incompetent. Not making any attempt to identify the truck, or throwing 30+ rounds at it and not killing anyone. These cops should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I think they’re trying to give them the truck along with a form that says sign here — “I waive my right to sue the LAPD”. No way.

That’s my guess too. If their lawyer has two ounces of brains to rub together he’ll tell the LAPD what they can do with their proposed settlement...ah, generous gift.

Seven cops, 47 bullets (6-7 shots apiece), and they only grazed the women and never hit their targets (thank the Creator!). What is with the panic-shooting of late? This is not a disciplined police force.

I’m guessing there was standing room only when the Chief of Clowns showed up, the women’s lawyers taking up most of the space, ain’t no way they’re not lawyered up with all the publicity.

I would contact Colt or S&W for their expert advice, and perhaps Glock as well depending upon the usage.

Make sure you specify the Extra-Heavy-Duty Model, a la le HummVee especial, and insist upon the unleaded options on everything, from paint to petrol!

First I've heard that -thanks for the info. And this is the lot of squirrelbait uniformed slopes that we are supposed to call upon for protection from the bad guys?

LEOs. When moments count, they are only 20+ minutes away! From ventilating anything 'threatening'!

On a more somber note, that's what the fund to compensate all the 9/11 victim families was about.
