LAPD Tells Witness Don’t Worry About It
Ermias Joseph Asghedom, best known as Nipsey Hussle, was an American rapper, community activist and entrepreneur that was gunned down on March 31, 2019. Two others were also wounded. The suspect in the case, 29-year old Eric Holder was arrested for the shooting. The getaway car at the scene was driven by a woman, who later saw her car and license plate on the news. According to the transcript of her grand jury testimony, the woman stated:
“Oh my God..My car is on here and everything and I didn’t do anything. I didn’t know this boy was gonna do this”
The woman showed up at the police station the next morning and stated to the officer that she wanted to talk to somebody because her car was linked to a murder. According to the Los Angeles Times, the officer told her to not worry about it and turned her away, so she left the station. Surely, they would be eager to hear her story, right? The woman has not yet been identified. Why would anyone who inquires about a possible link in a murder case be ignored by the police? The LAPD has a lot of explaining to do! In particular, how did the LAPD screw this up? What are your thoughts??
