Careful out there.
The man ain't getting paid if they let you do street hails. There are safety considerations as well but I agree, poor use of resources given the amount of violent crime in most cities.It's really hard to believe that this is an intelligent use of limited police resources. Don't the LA police have better things to do? If this is a problem, that's because it harms the financial interest of taxi companies, or Uber if the driver is doing cash rides off the app. But it's hard to see how there is any general public or safety interest at stake here.
He is lucky he didn't do it in NYC where they do stings all the time, especially at the airport. $1500 fine AND they can tow your car. Usually they don't tow your car if you cooperate but if that dude did that here he definitely would have got his car towed! LOL. Take the ticket and drive away or it only gets worse!While we don't know what the police operation was all about and whether it was effective use of taxpayer money, I'd say the dude is a freaking dumbass for first of all taking a street hail and then doing the stupid video. No sympathy from me.
I think that was Los Angeles PD.Where this happens? Popo got lots of free time to this. And look how lady cop showing off, she is ready to fire for nothing.
Just out of curiosity, where's the revenue for the city of LA? Are there local taxes for Uber rides there? When I look at the itemized Fare Details info, I don't see any item like that, or at least there isn't one here in upstate New York.Cat recording is a hero! He screwed up and helped another poor schlub not repeat his dumb mistake!
The purpose of the sting isn’t safety. It’s revenue for the city. Period!
The one in the uniform. Look at her face and hand move. I've been dealing with polices quiet often. She is not the one people wanna deal with.I think that was Los Angeles PD.
Which lady officer was gonna shoot Dumbass? The only officer who pointed anything at Einstein was the one recording his silliness on her phone.
