Woman injured in LAPD manhunt says cops won't pay taxes on replacement truck (The Raw Story)
Wednesday March 13th, 2013
The attorney for a woman who was mistakenly targeted by Los Angeles police during the manhunt for Christopher Dorner in February has accused the department of breaking its promise of a new truck for her.
“You tried to murder the woman, you put 102 bullet holes in her truck,” Glen Jonas told KNBC-TV on Monday. “Now you’re telling her she can’t have a 4-wheel drive.”
Jonas his client, 47-year-old Maggie Carranza, refused a police offer of a new Ford F-150 truck if she agreed to pay taxes on it, in part because it meant Carranza would have to pay an additional $10,000 in personal income taxes she cannot afford. He said the department’s offer also barred Carranza from selling the vehicle for a year.
