With regard to the information in Michael
LAPD Lead Detective – Det. Connie White:
In essence, the investigation’s status is “far from over”…though, the department’s position remains –
“It was an accident…” and
“…was not caused by a criminal act…”
A part of what Mr. Krikorian gleaned from the interview with Det. White, regarded the Professional (Official?) interpretation of the security camera
(I emphatically draw your attention to) they have had in possession since DAY 1.
…I’m not even going to go through an explanation proving them “wrong”… Rather…here’s what they say…
The “flash” is not an explosion…but is the brake lights coming on…
(okay - great news)
The apparent “rise” of the rear end is the result of the driver-side front wheel hitting the curb…and shearing-off.
Question for you…
If a Mercedes Benz (or any car other than an old Citroën) loses its front driver’s tire…what will happen to the vehicle?
a) Nothing – it will continue functioning as before with no apparent alteration to balance or stability, as Mercedes’ are the
b) The driver’s side will take a nose dive, with the passenger’s side lifting, and the rear end elevating at an uneven angle (passenger-side
slightly higher than the driver-side)
c) None of the above - Both of the above - I really don't care!
Did you choose “b)”?
If you chose “b)” like me…and…if we are correct…then…what happens when the driver-side nose of a car meets a grass turf median…at a high
rate of speed?
a) It mows it cleanly, asking no payment…unless you’re pleased with the results
b) It plows into the turf, with no care for aesthetics, and… …is entirely imperceivable in photos taken minutes, hours and days after
c) It plows into the turf for as long as the unbalanced weight of the driver’s side front end demands a mechanism of support…and would be
absolutely evident immediately following the events in question
Did you choose “c)”?
There is much video and photographic evidence…that shows no plowed path…that would have included a path that “took out” the utility cover…to
Maybe we chose wrong…
Maybe our answer should have been “a)” or “b)”…
I don’t know. I think I need someone to show me “why” I cannot get the same answers as “the Experts”.
Other thoughts on other aspects (such as the intent to go to ‘Vegas)…in a while.
