I can understand why they'd steal the wheels (I had my OEM wheel replaced by Sears because they messed it up and it cost them $500). I don't get why they stole the doors though? Is there some kind of black market for doors that I don't know about?

car parts are always worth more separate than with the car. I think they probably just took the most valuable stuff they could carry with them.

During the LA riots, the dealers that always gave back to the community did not get touched. While other dealerships were destroyed and looted.

Depending on insurance coverages, this might not be covered. Here in the US, most standard policies exclude damage caused by acts of terror, riots, civil unrest or war and you would have to get special coverage for those cases.

they totaled the hell out of every single car! LOL! no wheels on any of them!

but, it is pretty unbelievable that people would act like this. I didn't think that they were so lawless...it looks like the aftermath of a Raiders loss. why would people act out like that toward others? BMW is not a government building, is it?

I'm probably missing the point, I'm sure.

Its not been said yet, but anyone guess why they seem to have been going after doors and hoods? ....








Yup, use them as primitive shields against the rock throwing mobs they were fighting with.

Saw them grabbing passing cars and yanking out doors on TV. I was WTF? Then a few minutes later footage of same group holding the doors infront as they advansed on their opponents kind of like Police SWAT team. Comical to see. Then there was the guys wearing buckets on their heads to double up as helmets. Real comic relief for sure.

Braindead idiots. Just like those morons that wanted to destroy the mummies etc. And probably all in the name of religion.
