In Chula Vista, police made 105 DUI-related arrests at checkpoints last year but impounded 723 cars. Last year, in El Cajon, police arrested five drunk drivers at checkpoint but impounded 94 cars. Escondido impounded 654 cars but only made 56 DUI-related arrests during that same time period.
Escondido has one of the highest impound to DUI arrest ratios in the county. For every DUI arrest, police impounded 11.6 cars."
Disgusting. They make millions from stealing cars! Then they have the nerve to ask for a raise at the Escondido town hall meeting (Basically a circle jerk of the mayor and his cronies-puke ).
This needs to be stopped immediately. They take MILLIONS OF DOLLARS from people who have done harm to NOBODY. If you don't see a problem here, you are either a government thug or just a down right disturbing human being - maybe both.
"When asked if Escondido police try to make money off impound fees, Escondido police Lt. Craig Carter said, "Absolutely not. It's about the safety. It's always been about the safety."
Keep up the BS Escondido PD - You keep proving the fact that you are the #1 gang in town.
