Why would the police chief go out of her way to say that? Police chiefs dont take bribes like politicians so we can take that one right off the table.

This incident should force Uber out of this business, which they should have done already as they are not remotely competitive.

Do you think that we need legislation to do that or do you think public pressure will be enough to make uber stop, or another option i'm not seeing? I'm skeptical of the latter, unsure of what the former might look like

Might watch out for this guy. And use Lyft.
Uber’s not being smart or responsible about this, but that’s no surprise.

Nope. I loathe Uber and the culture that spawned it.

I think if taxi companies had treated their drivers better, this might never have happened. Uber only found a foothold because there was money to be made there.
