Though there are probably hundreds of taggers in LA, tags are still unique. I made a screenshot of the tag on the hood of the cab.

I'm sure all these people have records. Good Luck.

I really hope that you catch these people. I just don't understand people who act this way. I can guarantee if the LAFD were to offer a 1000 dollar reward, the suspects would be handed to you by within days. Good luck getting these criminals behind bars..

Thanks for your effort. I can assure you, as one of the LAFD investigators, we have seen that portion of the video and have made note of it. I will also tell you, that if we have need of a screenshot, we will go to the URL that you suggested. Thank you very much for your time.
