Police to ignore California impound law amid concern of fairness to illegal immigrants

The Los Angeles Police Department will soon start ignoring California state law, which requires police to impound the vehicles of unlicensed drivers for 30 days.
The majority of unlicensed motorists in Los Angeles are immigrants who are in the country illegally and have low-income jobs. The LAPD says the state's impound law is unfair because it limits their ability to get to their jobs and imposes a steep fine to get their car back.
As long as drivers can produce some form of I.D., proof of insurance and vehicle registration, they'll be allowed to keep their car. Police Chief Charlie Beck insists that it's simply leveling the playing field.
"It's about fairness. It's about equal application of the law," Beck told a Los Angeles TV station earlier this month.

I wish Jim would put in a "Like" button
Then the wetback drivers might do us some good.
All I have to do is denounce my citizenship, relinquish my driver license and then travel anywhere I want with impunity.
Oh, but wait; the IRS wants several years worth of taxes based on previous income for people who do that and actually wants to know where they are.
That is only for former citizens, of course.
I am starting to think I would be better off if I had never been a citizen of this country.
By order of guess who?.. THE UNIONS. I have about as much respect for cops as I do teachers. They’re both whores for their Unions in exchange for those juicy, falsely inflated LIFETIME PENSIONS at the expense of tax payers.
I give up..........

Agree, we definitely have ‘went around the bend’.
In DC, after a rash of street burglaries with a couple designated ‘hate crimes’ ?? on ‘do funnies’, the Chief stood up and declared(not quite a quote) “The reason for the recent surge in crimes is WE have been to good at our jobs and the people get out more and are more relaxed so when a couple of crimes happen together it seems worse than it is”.
Guess when you get people running your PD that are probably better suited to be Professors or such you get such ‘deep thought’ when it comes to enforcing the law.
The first poor, white man that gets stopped and has their car impounded should sue their rears off.
I like this....
I like this....
Those illegals need their cars to get to work. They cant be treated like us legal Americans by police.
What is amazing is how these libs just ignore the law rather than change it
“What is amazing is how these libs just ignore the law rather than change it”
Maybe they hate us ?
There are no libs anymore.....just hard core left.
The fines, impounding fees generate INCOME for the city, do they not?
If the illegals cannot afford to get their cars out of the lot in a timely fashion the cars go to auction, don’t they?
I thought liberals LOVED fines, fees, tickets and taxes. Why are they cutting off this revenue source?
Well, darlin’ it appears some of us animals are more equal than others.
“I give up.......... “
That’s all they’re waiting for. It’s gotten so bad now, I don’t think there’s any turning back. Between the criminal foreign nationals and the corrupt authorities, we’re out numbered.
“Is there some way that we can vote California Off the Island?”
The fault isn’t ‘California’, or MOST of its citizens, a few years ago anyway. They passed prop 187 to stop this crap, and more than a few good DC based REPUBLICAN power houses helped get it scrapped. If we only had the left to fight, we might actually get somewhere.
Remembering Proposition 187
[snip]Ah, yes, and WHO was right in the front fighting Prop 187 ...... None other than GROVER NORQUIST, and other so called conservatives.
[snip]Working closely with Stephen Moore of the Cato Institute, Cesar Conda (former domestic advisor to Dick Cheney) circulated a statement against Prop. 187 of California in the nineties.
so do all the middle class white folks get a rebate for all their fines and impound fees ??? didnt think so...
the commies aint even tryin to hide it anymore...they have declared war, and despise our existance, even as we keep trying to work within the *law* of man and God...
someday theyll push to far and then 'self defense' becomes a valid principle...
“the commies aint even tryin to hide it anymore...they have declared war, and despise our existance, even as we keep trying to work within the *law* of man and God...”
Why should they hide? When the Republicans in D.C. are hiding in caves?
You’re right; law enforcement officers that don’t enforce the law are as useless as teachers that don’t teach (and just as expensive); thankfully we have a governor here in NJ that cut costs resulting in thousands of both losing their jobs.
“Nation of scofflaw immigrants.”
Here in NJ we have to jump through hoops to renew our drivers licenses, while CA wants to give them to illegal aliens. I’m so tempted to get one of the “matricula consular” ID cards; if I’m in trouble, or need to use an emergency room, I’ll use my Mexican ID (they’ve shuttered many of our emergency rooms here in NJ because the law required them to treat everyone while constantly reducing the reimbursements for doing so).
good point, although i firmly believe today, that theres a sick, evil side that gets a woody in the fact that they can flaunt it and still deceive so many useful idiots, that cant or wont believe em when they honestly state their intentions to destroy our way of life... the father of lies is on his game when he can fool the masses while tellin you the honest truth...
