I responded to you in a PM since it would be off topic to answer your off-topic query.

Having said that: What do you think about the Mercedes losing it's engine, transmission, and drive train in one single piece deposited a hundred feet from the site of the accident.

I want to get this thread back on topic and I breathlessly await your response.

Does anyone realize that it would be virtually and conclusively IMPOSSIBLE for any vehicle to travel anywhere close to 100 mph on the streets where Michael Hastings car was found!!!
Had he done that, he'd have collided with at least another car at one of the intersections, long before that.

I say that, because I don't believe that this accident happened in the way that was reported....for several reasons.
Even 50 mph is a stretch, along these streets, even at 4am.

If he'd even gained speed as he drove down Highland Ave from Santa Monica Bvd, Melrose Ave is only the next major intersecting avenue after crossing it, (that is 3 minor streets in between), he could NOT have reached the speed of 100mph, or anywhere close.

I've lived in this West Hollywood area for 20 years and I know the streets in this area very well.

I also know the physical aspects of Highland Ave, (N-S direction), which goes through about 3 different aspects as it descends from crossing Santa Monica Bvd, then Melrose Ave, then Beverly Bvd, then Wilshire Bvd. (E-W).

That palm-tree'd stretch, that was first featured in the still photo of the burnt-out car, is BELOW Melrose Ave, not between Sta Monica & Melrose...if not even further south on Highland! It sports larger houses than further north.

Whereas, the video clip of the car burning, as alot of people here noticed, was not in the same stretch as the above still photo; here the trees were decidious, less dense and in a different kind of residential area.

LOL!...That was a joke! Who do they think they're kidding? Didn't anybody else notice how nonchalant the 'witnesses' were acting, and really bad actors at that! LOL...The guy with the hose and the cop standing next to him, as there was A BODY BURNING INSIDE THE CAR!!!...That's not what happens in real life.

Then there was the supposed cop car video-cam, showing a car supposedly 'speeding' past him....
That wasn't a cop car video-cam...That was a set-up by the ones who targetted Michael Hastings.
That, to me, is evident.



Welcome to the Sandy Hook Syndrome!.Yet again.

I'm 30 and I still ride my motorcycle well over 100 mph all the time. I have a wife, 2 sons and a career as well. Guy's with fast vehicle's tend to drive fast, especially if they are adrenaline junkies, which he clearly was.



at the hospital i work at we call you guys "tempory citizens"

^^This

Oh yes, I considered that too. What a coincidence that the paparazzi was parked at the gas station with his dash cam running. Don't think everyone is a dupe. I get you.

Here is what is so important right now: Every website I visit where this subject is being discussed there are these "posters", and "bonafide members of the public", ridiculing anyone that is questioning this event. That is a dead ringer of a disinfo campaign. Always trying to shame and humiliate others into the OS.

Screw that. I am on to the sock-puppets, trolls, and disinfo agents. You could have 50 people gang up on me in a thread, I WILL still think for myself. I hope all of us will.

It's like Snowden said. His biggest fear was that everybody would become focussed on him and not what he had revealed.

I don't think getting caught up in whether or not he was murdered helps anything because we'll never know and no insight into the situation will come from that, we'll just argue and go round and round in circles, just what TPTB would want for that exact reason. It takes the focus off what Michael Hastings did and what he was doing prior to his death.

Project PM was one of those things. Crowd sourced effort to research and link together thousands of files stolen from Stratfor and dumped on Barrett Brown's PC. ProjectPM

You make a hell of alot of assumptions and it looks as if you're really trying to convince people that this was a perfectly normal scenario in L.A., given the 'facts & statistics'.

I'll be more than willing to wager that the speed of 100 mph would be IMPOSSIBLE for any vehicle to reach, on this particular street and in this particular part of town....that I know very well (20 yrs) and it's obvious you don't.

So I suggest you take your 'facts' and relocate them where we don't have to read them.

Your line of inquiry leads nowhere. Whether or not he was murdered is irrelevant and something that will never be agreed on or confirmed.

Better to take a look at his work and read what others in his community said about him. It'll give you more insight into this situation than the remains of a burned out vehicle ever will and you might even learn a thing or two.

The car he was driving reaches 100 mph in a little under 6 seconds, he was caught on camera running a red light at high speed. Those are facts. He could have very easily reached 100 mph in less than one block in the car he was driving.

Well that avenue has been exhausted. Sorry but, you are late to the party. We have been through all that ad-nauseum.

So, back to what I asked you in the first place....

Got anything to add to the discussion??

"Those are facts"?
How do you know these are facts? Because you want them to be?

Do you have the cop radio recordings or transcripts that report the police pursuit of a speeder?
Everything is recorded in copville; I'm sure you could obtain a copy of the cop's conversation to headquarters, stating what the cop was pursuing at the time...if it ever happened!

You can see him go thru the intersection well over the 40 mph speed limit. The data sheet on the Mercedes C250 is readily available online. That's how I know they are facts. I would have to close my eyes to pretend he wasn't speeding in that video. Maybe you should go watch the video of him running the intersection and read the data sheet for the C250 and figure it out on your own. He wasn't going 40 or even 50 mph in the video he was going closer to 100 mph of not more since it takes him less than 2 seconds to enter the frame from the left and exit the frame on the right.

No cops were in pursuit of him. He was caught by the dash cam in a paparazzi vehicle. Maybe you should actually watch the video for yourself.

Well Starling, that is not how it went down. No cops until after the crash. Only some " supposed" paparazzi video that some lucky guy just happened to take on his dash cam while he was, otherwise not available. He was also the first one on the scene before the fire department or the cops even got there. Just a lucky guy.

you didn't try very hard and you really should because it's the only avenue that counts.

For Chrissakes, are you not aware that the government is watching everything you do?

Does this breach of your civil liberties mean nothing to you?

Don't you want to follow up what Michael Hastings was working on, what info he had and where he might have gotten it?

Is his death nothing more than a spectacle to you?

It seems so, in which case, you've got the government you deserve so no complaining about them from here on in. Better to kiss their asses and say thank you, because that is essentially what you're doing in this thread.

the family will need to publicize the forensics report from the insurance company asap . the police would have no reason to maintain posession of the vehicle since they use private contractors to haul them anyways. if any information is omitted or gag orders issued, that would become reasonable suspicion that there is interference. from an outside party . who and why??? also, ats no longer allows posts under anonymized ip even while im logged in?? why do u guys need to maintain a record of my location for every post huh? guess this place got bought off around the time the global powers shifted control of assets, oh ya know the same time the '08 economic crisis ???would fit a historical pattern anyways .

He was apparently out chasing that little Beiber goober and happened to be in the area. Beiber is big money for those guys so I don't see his trying to get the scoop as unreasonable. And curiosity would make almost anyone go check out that crash. It's like a train wreck for some reason car accidents, especially fatal ones, trigger people's curiosity. I think most people only watch racing in hope of seeing something crash and crash hard.

I get you. I don't know how old you are but do you know anything about the assassination of JFK and the cover-up by the LAPD??

Trust and believe if this was a hit the evidence will be buried so deep it would take bunker buster to blow it out.
