Man, what an awful seven-day stretch for Buena Park police cars.

On Saturday, Oct. 5, one of the department's units struck and killed a pedestrian. Friday, a second unit was rear ended by a car, sending its driver and the police officer to the hospital with injuries.

This happened just before 8:40 p.m. Friday at La Palma and Stanton avenues, where the police woman, who was just leaving from a stop at the intersection heading east on La Palma in the 2011 Dodge Charger, was rear ended by a 2011 Kia Sorrento driven by a 32-year-old man, according to the California Highway Patrol.

She was taken to UCI Medical Center with moderate injuries, and the man went there with minor wounds. It was unclear at press time whether he faces a citation or arrest.

The patrol car sustained major rear end damage, according to the CHP.

"I ran my car into a cop car the other day..."

This story reminds me of two Garden Grove cops in one police vehicle who almost rear ended the people in front of them. I was approaching my former home at the corner of Euclid and College (Garden Grove hell house) - these idiots jerked their patrol car forward while lobbing crazed dirty looks with the intention of me noticing before arriving home.What would become a favorite harassment tactic especially by the Garbage Grove PD. Rile the target as he is leaving or arriving home. Day after day. Week after Week. Month after Month. Year after Year. Decade out decade in.

My comment sounded a bit rambly. In summary, in an attempt to harass me seconds before pulling into my condo complex two Garden Grove cops almost rear ended the car ahead of them.
