Your mind immediately jumps to conspiracy theory. Sometimes a cigar really is a cigar.
So a late model Mercedes, which has countless counter mechanisms for stopping a catastrophic failure, somehow explodes so violently that the engine block leaves the frame and lands in the middle of the road?
Mercedes stated that this is nearly impossible in their cars and were not able to determine a single scenario in which this could have possibly been a fault of one of the components.
Or it could have been the fact that he pissed someone off when he got McCrystal fired. Or he was working on something just as big and they didn't want it getting out.
Everything stinks about this whole thing. LAPD refusing to release any accident report information, refusing to release the black box to Mercedes Benz so they can anaylyze what happened, refusing to allow access to Hastings wife to the police report, not releasing the autopsy report, cremating the body without consent.
Obviously no one is trying to cover anything up, just business as usual.
