In other bmw e36 news....



I'm sure you guys are gonna love this one:

laweekly.com



Brian Hitchcock was headed home from his job as a technical writer for Skechers in Manhattan Beach last June when he pulled up at a red light next to Hermosa Beach motorcycle officer Anthony Parente. Parente was driving to headquarters after a 12-hour shift on his police motorcycle.

The light turned green and both their lives changed forever.

As they took off, Parente moved in tight behind Hitchcock's BMW 323 and activated his siren. Hitchcock hit his brakes, and Parente rear-ended Hitchcock's car, which sent Parente somersaulting through the air. He landed upside-down, his boots sticking in the air, in the backseat of Hitchcock's top-down convertible.

A press release issued by the Redondo Beach Police Department framed the incident as the fault of a driver who appeared to stop short in order to injure a police officer — a far more sensational angle than a cop rear-ending a car because he turned on his siren while tailgating.

Cop said he was afraid the guy was gonna pick up his shotgun that was laying on the ground

My first reaction is that this is really sad, and I hate when cops abuse their power like this...

On the other hand I'm looking at the picture and it looks like he hauled to a stop in the middle of the street? That ain't right... pull over and stop...
