Car slams Venice Beach Boardwalk; 12 injured

A car plowed into a crowd of pedestrians at Venice Beach on Saturday, injuring 12 people before the driver ran away, fire and police officials said.

Two people were in critical condition and two were in serious condition Saturday night, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

The victims were on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, a famed tourist attraction on the west side of Los Angeles lined with hundreds of street vendors and performers.

    More great news from the failed state of California. Alas, the Supreme Court just ruled their crowded prisons are tantamount to cruel and unusual punishment, so ten percent of the inmates must be released. That means this suspect should be out by Tuesday.

      Just a gentle reminder:
      Of the 32 states which receive more than they contribute, 27 states (84%) are Republican. Of the 18 states which contribute more than they receive, 14 states (78%) are Democratic.

    Really? Posting a story about people being run over on the Venice boardwalk is a false flag? Huh. Who knew.

    When material aspiration was socially acceptable, fewer residents achieved notoriety by violence.
