So tonight I am minding my own business shopping at safeway with my brand new car in the parking lot. All of a sudden there was all of this commotion about a white car which my car happens to be. Turns out a punk in an old Volvo hit my car and was trying to flee when other customers stopped him. By the time I got out there, they were trying to rub their paint off my car and claiming no damage at all had occurred when I could see his black paint on my white paint. The punk and his girlfriend said I was looking for drama and that they "ever so slightly" tapped my car. Yeah, right. So I called the police because they had already tried to flee once.
Police get there and refuse to write a report. They said they would get his information for me and wouldn't let me see his paperwork myself. A supervisor showed up which is automatic with me because I have complained about them and they know I have the video of their officers lying to me. I don't like them anymore than they like me, but they still have to do their job.
Turns out that one of the officers wanted to give me a little payback by giving me incomplete information about the identity of the punk that hit my car and tried to flee. He gave me the wrong driver's license number when he knows that all CA driver's licenses start with a letter. Coincidentally this officer just "forgot" to get the whole driver's license number as if he doesn't know how many characters it has and that there's a letter in it. This of course just complicates the claims process for me.
Anyway, I know a lot of people love PPD, but don't ever cross them or you will pay. I refuse to leave this town when I've lived her for decades and I've never EVER had legal trouble or had more than a ticket. They just don't like that I am able to prove how badly they behaved when they thought no one was watching only to later find out I captured the whole thing on my phone.
This bad situation was made worse because of this payback. There's no way an officer wouldn't know the number he gave me was wrong when he viewed the driver's license and purposely left off part of the number.
