Sad but so true
Go check out Facebook and see all the clowns taking up for him.
Just because this guy's got serious mental health issues doesn't mean we don't have a massive but under-reported problem with a pervasive institutionally entrenched culture of corruption in law enforcement agencies all over the country...not just in LA. Because we do.
LAPD claims they've re-opened his case, but let's just say I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for the new investigation to reveal that some of Dorner's allegations have merit. Will be just another whitewash IMO.
And we'll continue to be policed by law enforcement agencies populated in large measure by those who believe their badge and gun give them carte blanche to violate the civil rights of the citizenry at their whim, relying on the lies and cover-ups of their blue brethren to protect them...and their pension.
Go check out the internet and find people advocating/denouncing everything...
Some of those people are saying that they hope he kills all LAPD cops
1 man occupying the attention of the LAPD, and surely substantial federal resources.
But somehow an armed citizenry, numbering in the tens or hundreds of millions, is completely powerless, so they should just trust in liberal dogma, and turn in their guns.
LAPD just randomly shoots up similar looking cars without IDing anyone... even though they found the guys car burned out.
Somebody tell me why this isn't attempted murder?
Yea, that is pretty fugged up. I bet they never have to answer for that or have the owner's truck repaired
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
It should be.
Are you a llama or an alpaca??
If CMXI or any other lawyers are around...
Can anything not be done to the LAPD for shooting up that person etc? Would they be able to press charges etc?

Very hard to get criminal convictions on the cops, civil suits are easier, but they cover their ass quite well. Ask the parents of Kelly Thomas.
That is so fugged up. Just because you are looking for someone doesnt mean you go around shooting any and everything.
Pretty much. A cop damn near has to execute someone in front of a stadium full of people to really be charged with anything substantial. A cop shooting at a car because they suspect a wanted fugitive is in it will result in a quiet investigation, some paper shuffling, maybe a reassignment, and then it'll all be swept under the rug.
The civil suit might yield a little bit of restitution depending on the extent of the injury, but neither of the women in that blue pickup died, so you'd be amazed at how little they could possibly get. Unless the LAPD goes around dropping bodies, there won't be much civil recovery. The worst part about the civil suit is that it won't even actually punish the officer - the city will have to pay out the damages, so in reality, every tax-paying citizen is paying for that officer's conduct.
Covering up for each other is what most cops do best IMO.
Clearly the answer isn't the Dorner style lunacy of asymmetriclal warfare and violence.
But I'm not sure what the answer is either
You read about the Kelly Thomas case?? That case is f*cked. The Fullerton cops(where my son and my ex live)beat a mentally handicapped guy to death and they're probably gonna walk.
This simply blows my mind.
Just because they thought it could be him they unload on those two women.
They did the same to another guy driving a pickup, fortunately he was not hit. Actually, teh second was even more f'ed. A dude was driving to work and hit the crime scene, he was told to turn around. He did that and was driving away when some other cops thought he was fleeing the scene and shot up his car.
Best thing about this situation is LAPD is showing that there is some truth to his claims.
Scares me that LAPD wants drones and the ability to shoot a hellfire at him if they see him. With their competence they would hit a school.
In reality, there are very few restraints on LEO use of force.
I was on his side until he called Mark Sanchez a rapist.
He meant Ben Rothlesberger.
