    Retired LAPD Sergeant Shot To Death

    Walnut -- A retired Los Angeles police sergeant was shot to death in an industrial area of Walnut while waiting for a tow truck, and sheriff's investigators today asked anyone who may have witnessed the crime to come forward.

    Ruben Whittington, 62, was killed in the 300 block of Lemon Avenue about 11:30 last night.

    He spent 20 years with the LAPD, retiring in 1995, according to sheriff's Deputy Dana Camarillo. His last assignment was as a field sergeant at the Hollywood Division.

    Authorities said robbery was the apparent motive of the shooter, who targeted Whittington while he was stopped in an industrial area with a flat tire.

    The victim had placed a call for assistance, and the tow truck driver who arrived shortly after getting the dispatch found him dead, said Capt. Ed Winter of the coroner's office.

    Winter said Whittington lived in Walnut and is survived by his wife.

    Anyone with information was asked to call (323) 890-5500.

    Amen - Civilians too. I cannot tell you how many incidents like that I've heard of in the 20+ years while I've lived around Dallas, where a stranded motorist gets raped, kidnapped, and/or killed by a supposed good samaritan.

    Last year, an ENTIRE FAMILY was shot and killed in I-35W, not that far from me, after their van broke down on the side of the road, and I don't think they ever figured out who did it or why.

    Just locking the car and calling 911 isn't enough - Windows are easy to smash. You need to be armed, and even that won't help if you don't pay attention to what's going on. At least it equalizes the situation, and gives you a chance.

    May he rest in peace.
