Police union chief's car totaled by unlicensed driver

Izen-uniform-twitter.jpgThe Police Protective League is one of the loudest voices against LAPD Chief Charlie Beck's policy to bar officers from punitive impounds of cars driven by unlicensed drivers. So of course this would happen. Tyler Izen, the league's president, says his car was totaled last night by just such a driver. The driver without license turned left into his car at an intersection, Izen says on Twitter. Smashing your car into any cop's vehicle is never advised, but this was really the wrong guy to hit.

Given a rhetoric opportunity like this, Izen knew just what to do. He went on talk radio this morning. By the way, Izen says he's sore but fine.
