Thursday night, three people were killed in an accident in Pico Rivera. The collision was caused by a speeding driver.

A Honda Civic was traveling northbound on San Gabriel River Parkway in the 3500 block. A 22-year-old man was driving the Civic, and had a female and three children as passengers.

The Civic was going very fast while on a curve and was then forced over the line onto the southbound side of the parkway. The Civic then crashed head-on into a Nissan Sentra.

Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department officials arrived at the accident and began conducting the investigation.

The Civic driver and two boys, ages 11 and 13, died at the scene as they were ejected from the vehicle. The woman in the front seat and the third child were both taken to the hospital in critical condition. According to the police, the driver was taking the kids home after a party.

Two women were in the Nissan that was hit in the collision. They were both rushed to a hospital with serious injuries.

The fatal accident occurred around 8:45 p.m. by the 605 freeway. None of the victims’ identities has been released at this point and their conditions are still unknown.

The accident is still under investigation; however, there is no doubt that speed is a major factor in this crash.

Above The Law

Law Enforcement is supposed to enforce laws. Among their other important duties, police officers, sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement agencies have an obligation to protect and to serve their communities. Most of the time, they dutifully meet their obligation, but what happens when they fail to protect and to serve? What happens when they fail to enforce laws? What happens when they mistakenly believe that they are above the law?

Los Angeles County officials are dealing with a huge public relations nightmare that may further tarnish the already tainted image of several cities and law enforcement agencies in the area.

A photograph of a smiling woman in a Cudahy nightclub brandishing two handguns and wearing a councilman’s badge may have played a role in Sheriff Lee Baca’s decision to recall about 200 badges the department gave to local politicians.

Baca’s decision came two weeks after the FBI arrested three Cudahy city officials on bribery charges.

One command-level sheriff’s official briefed on the badge recall said the move was prompted by the revelation in Cudahy. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore, however, said that the timing was a coincidence and that a 2007 state attorney general’s warning prompted the call to return the badges.

The emergence of the Cudahy photo is the latest in a series of incidents in which official-looking credentials given to civilians by law enforcement agencies have come under scrutiny.

Critics have long said badges and identification cards appeared to be rewards for political contributions and had the potential for abuse. Because of media scrutiny, California police chiefs and sheriffs were told by then-Attorney General Jerry Brown in 2007 that handing out badges created the potential for civilians to falsely pose as law enforcement officers.

The attorney general’s opinion covers any badge “that would deceive an ordinary reasonable person into believing that it is authorized for use by a peace officer.” In the wake of the opinion, some agencies pledged to stop issuing identification cards and badges.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department recalled official-looking identification cards but continued giving badges to council members and city managers in cities that contracted for the department’s police services.

Whitmore said the badges were given to city officials for use during emergencies so they could pass through sheriff’s command posts. He estimated about 200 badges will be recalled from about 40 cities.
