My guess is that he lives nearby this convenience store. His shoes look like slippers. He is dressed very casually as though he was at home relaxing and ran out to the store to get something quickly.

I'm not sure how a significant other came into play but ok I mean if that makes you feel like more of a man sure go a head. All kidding aside you sound like a douche and you have to live with that so I do feel sorry for you and if you have a significant other.

505- Never heard of a 'sport cyclist' but seems like it struck a nerve with you, lol. Caught your lady sneaking a peak? All kidding aside, i hope the rider is ok. Seeing the time, it was probably someone getting off work and trying to make it home.

Did I say I sided with the man that drove off? No I did not in any way shape or form all I said is road cyclists are the worst and that must have struck a nerve with you to write back, you must be a "sports cyclist" too.

Its was a 1030pm(at night). Definitely not a spandex roadie, but thanks for not caring about cyclists and siding with someone who could have killed someone and drove off.

It would still be a hit-and-run. "Penalties for Hit and Run in California The consequences for a hit and run conviction are very confusing. If you are charged with hit and run causing injury under VC 20001, you could face up to 364 days in jail and fines of up to $10,000. A felony is punishable by up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine."

Quite the fashion plate. Note the Sperry Topsiders (or similar) with no socks. Quick - photo shoot with GQ. Where's the sweater over the back with arms tied around the neck?

The pictures they are showing are photos of a computer screen. How about taking a screenshot on the actual computer so we aren't looking a photo of a photo, with terrible resolution? Would hope our PD would try harder than this. I wouldn't turn in a meaningless report for work or school with this poor quality, lol.

DBD – These are screen shots and not photos of a computer screen. Typical CCTV video is not high resolution to begin with. Also, CCTV is moving video, not still photographs. A freeze of frame image from a CCTV video is like using a slow shutter speed on your camera with a moving subject.

Protip for the PD: the "print screen" button on the keyboard takes a screenshot and copies it. Then open Word, Paint, Gmail, ANYTHING, and paste it using Ctrl + V

True except computer learning may actually be making it a reality. Look up 'In the age of A.I. is seeing still believing' in the New Yorker. Computers can look at millions of pixelated license plate images, if they know what a really pixelated B looks like they can identify one pretty accurately even as blur. A cold case was solved using this technology. It won't be long before the cops can feed that blurry grey smudge into a computer and it will identify the license plate, we live in the future

"enhance" is a myth purported by CSI shows. You can change the contrast, brightness, color, etc for very minor improvements, but it is impossible to enhance the quality.

Tall black dude with a basketball tournament shirt? Looks like a coach. The detective should call the local college and high school basketball coaches to ID their colleague. Should take no more than four calls to ID the guy if he's from anywhere between LA and SF.

Yep, that's a tournament shirt. Might be a Coach or Dad of a player. Call Manny Murrillo at Pro Skill's or the Eastside boy's club...he probably knows him either way.
