LOS ANGELES | Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:38pm EDT

(Reuters) - The city of Los Angeles will pay $4.2 million to a mother and daughter who were caught in a hail of bullets in February when police mistook their truck for one driven by renegade ex-policeman Christopher Dorner and opened fire, officials said on Tuesday.

The settlement, which allows both sides to avoid a trial, brings the Los Angeles Police Department nearer to closing what had been an embarrassing chapter in its search for Dorner. The department still is reviewing the actions of two officers.

Once these two pay the taxes on their winnings, I see a good chance of a two Hispanic voter pickup for the GOP.

Getting close to what we're paying for .375 H&H ammo.

If you live in a large metropolitan area I can recommend areas and how to go about getting shot at, but no guaranty you'll get anything more than what you can collect from your insurance company.

Just one of those things, I mean man they were in hot pursuit, most like getting ready to lock down most of LA and do a house to house. You got to accept stuff like this if you want to be secure.

What's the point? Without the slightest effort to confirm who it was that was driving down the street they just started shooting. One of them was shot twice...in the back. Their truck was riddled with bullets.

Is that 46 shots at the truck? As it is driving away?

Los Angeles got off light with $4.2 million settlement.

"How much is that per bullet fired?"

Who cares? The moron police fired on (2) innocent women just because they were in car that vaguely resembled the suspect auto. I'm sick of the "Protect and to Serve" idiot cops shooting dogs, breaking into the wrong house, and now shooting up old ladies.

There will come a day when some innocent homeowner shoots some stupid cop while thinking an intruder. Of course the homeowner will die, once the over-zealous SWAT shows up. Hope he takes some dumb-ass cop with him, if not warranted.

And yes, I mostly support LEO's, but they have gotten out of control.

What's wrong with you? These were (2) old ladies (no matter their ethnicity) delivering newspapers who were shot at by DUMB ASS cops who couldn't recognize the difference in automobiles. They deserve every dollar they can get.

That’s pretty damn blue for a GRAY truck - of another make and model to boot.

“Dorner’s gray Nissan Titan truck, and officials have said the officers opened fire after mistaking the blue Toyota Tacoma “

But hey - it WAS a truck - and also, never mind that it two women instead of one black man -

Easy to see their mistake s/
I’d have nightmares about ever driving again =

No sh*t! But the Police Department should also pay. This was an atrocity in the making. Two old ladies shot at because the idiot "civil servants" couldn't tell the difference between cars? Really? They should have gotten more and taught those trigger-happy cops a lesson. I'd like to see what the Chief of Police has to say about this.

"47 is hardly considered 'old'."

So okay for the cops to open major fire on them, anyway?

There is just NO excuse for the cops peppering their car when it didn't even resemble Dorner's vehicle. They are lucky they are alive.

the only VAGUE thing was that it was a truck -

Other than that, it was pretty damn BLUE to be mistaken for gray - not to mention the different make and model - or that it was two women, not one black man -

TOTALLY indefensible - They should NEVER be allowed to carry a gun again.

Given that LA’s finest emptied numerous magazines to stop a pair of women who BORE NO RESEMBLANCE to the suspect, the city got off cheap at 4.something million.

I’m no lawyer - I work for a living. (And I’m too honest)

How good are you at differentiating makes, models and colors of similar vehicles under poor lighting conditions? Look at the back window of the truck in daylight. It is shaded to the point you can't make out anything in the cab. Where was the sun at the time of the shooting?

Unless you're being sarcastic, they were not only two different types of vehicles that even I could discern in "dim lighting", but all police cars have spotlights and they could see there were to older women in the vehicle (think long hair versus short Dorner hair). There is no excuse and that's why LA paid the money up front. Those cops simply screwed up. They should be kicked off the force and lucky to get a job at McD's.
