*NSFW* Rage material
- Undercover PD with luggage are trying to get a ride, waiving down pedestrians (Uber drivers) and then lie that their phone doesen't work.
- They ask the driver if paying in cash is okay (with no receipt) and if the driver agrees then they bust him.
The scam is that they claim their phone doesn’t work and they offer to pay cash instead of in-app, which means there’s no receipt and that’s illegal so they cite the driver if he agrees...
AKA: Baiting low income Uber drivers who pulled over to help them, with cash
Taxi Industry funding LAPD to do this
"Galindo insisted that it was not a conflict of interest for the City of Los Angeles to take money from the taxi companies to fund stings that now arrest their top competitors."
That's right, private businesses legally paying the city to eliminate it's competitors (Uber drivers)
LAPD can be hired as mercenaries
