    I picked other. I do not think it may necessarily be the police but those in charge of the police and the food police who have a problem with these taco trucks(we called them gut trucks in the Army). A mobile food place that sells bacon wrapped hotdogs, tacos and other food sounds like it would a thorn in the side of people who want to dictate what you can eat and limit where fast food places can be built.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    In my Army, we called it a roach coach.

    Re: Does the LAPD have too much time on their hands?

    Just this once, I agree with Partisan. The cops are protecting the community from untrained unsafe food handlers. There's a similar problem in London, with itinerant hot dog sellers, selling from a portable trolley. You see and smell the hot dogs and onions, but not underneath, where the filthy gas bottle powering the hotplate is stored, with a greasy box of elderly unrefrigerated precooked sausages balanced on top of it. Food poisoning in a bun. They tend to work late evenings, as the pubs empty out, so the diners are none too observant.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    The people in the video about a minute and 17 seconds into the video state that they have a variety of required permits and licenses.

    Are they violating public nuisance/parking ordinances?
