Yes, they’re just doing their jobs, but it still wouldn’t hurt erring on the side of understanding, especially when a live report for KTLA is being shot. However, for the LAPD, nobody’s above the law, even reporters and journalists.
Certainly, it’s not something that you see on a daily basis so when a live report for KTLA on the "best road trip cars" gets interrupted by an LAPD officer handing out parking tickets to all the parked cars like they were flyers for a weekend carnival, it’s certainly something worth watching and having a few laughs at. That’s the LAPD, folks! Y’all should know better than to mess with these officers-on-duty.
