LA cops light up random citizens because their cars match a perp's

I understand why the LA cops would be mad and tense after losing a couple of their own overnight, but then to go out randomly shooting at any vehicle that matches the description of the one driven by the bad guy?

Women delivering newspapers in Torrance shot in manhunt for ex-cop - latimes.com

No, I'm not exaggerating. The LA cops shot up two different Toyota Titans this morning for no reason whatsoever except that they looked like the bad guy's ride. Seriously, when did LA become part of Mexico or Argentina or Brazil? What's next, "death squads?"

The only good news is that the cops are such miserable marksmen that only two of the three occupants of the vehicles were injured, and nobody was killed. This despite the description of the Titans as "riddled with bullet holes."

Sorry about the truck ID - I'm totally ignorant.
These "incidents" seem to happen more often in LA than anywhere else in the US; I read that their district pays out larger civil judgments than any other, even when correcting for its size.

Meanwhile, out in LA County they've fingered another bunch of rogue deputies:
L.A. County Sheriff's Department intends to fire seven deputies - latimes.com
These not-so-magnificent seven had become an awful lot like the gang cliques that they were going after.

not blaming hollywood or anything, but with shows like the shield (which is one of my favorite all-time shows), lots of would-be, former, and current cops probably think they ARE vic mackey, shane vandrell, curtis lemanski, or ronnie gardoki.
