    LA's City Att. Office, Police Commission and LAPD decide not to follow state law

    "Sir your under arrest."

    "Why"?

    "You broke the law."

    "So, You guys are breaking the law everyday."

    "As a matter of fact the LA City Attorneys Office, The LAPD Police Commission and the LAPD has now set precedent that following state law is really only a matter of conscious, and it's against my conscious to follow this particular law you are arresting me for"....

    Ya they keep saying they're going to change the policy but I have yet to see a Special Order directing me to do so. It's still business as usual...

    The legal action taken after an officer ignored a policy directing him to disregard state law and was punished for doing so would be interesting...

    It will only be a matter of time before an unlicensed driver gets pulled over and released with their vehicle and then later kill someone in a traffic collision. As many as there are its not really a question of if but more of when. LA is going to lose a lot of money when that happens but even worse, someone will have lost their life...

    Actually, to be accurate the law your referring to is in reference to DUI checkpoints only. The policy change being proposed applies to all traffic stops which is not in compliance with state law.

    Has the constitutionality of the 30-day impound law been decided?
