This stinks of a cover up by Alarcon and his cronnies in the LAPD. i do not care if this man was a homeless drunk or as one commentor said someone who used there benefit checks to live on the street and get loaded. You cannot drive reckless and swerve from the middle lane of a road and kill anyone. I had a high school govertment teacher who told me the best thing ever he said never trust elected officials they have always been bought by someone controlling them. The fact that the LAPD never made any press releases regarding this yet alone it was a city worker driving Richard Alarcons city car. The current officials in office all need to been thrown out all of them are doing shady cover up and abusing city resources and fundings. Time to clean house. And that Figuera cared more about showing his connections and walking around ordering people like he was in charge. This is very sick. I can't say it's made me distrustful of our elected officials because I never trusted them. Our elected city officials are supposed to protect the communities they serve not cover up a city official mowing down and killing one of the most vulnurable members of our society the homeless. Everyone involved in this needs to be investigated and severly disaplined.
