During this case LAPD has opened fire on more innocent people than killer cop if that puts it in perspective. Crude men, crude weapons.
Shooting to Kill.
Have you read Dorner’s manifesto? Some sites are only printing select excerpts. Full coverage here: http://m.gawker.com/killercop/
This is a spectacular case. You’ve got an ex-cop who snapped. And if he hadn’t of killed two innocent people just because they were related to the police chief, he’d be pretty damn awesome. Because the other players in this saga are notoriously dirty. I mean, straight up greasy. And for decades, they’ve been getting away with murder.
LAPD’s conduct in chasing Christopher Dorner is a strong argument for his accusations having merit.
I lived thru the Beltway Sniper, a serial killer taking out randoms on a daily basis. For 23 days, the entire DC area lived in terror. Tensions ran high. It was terrifying because there was no rhyme or reason; people were getting shot just pumping their gas or walking out of Home Depot.
Fifteen shootings/ten deaths happened before the nutcase was finally apprehended alive. Throughout the entire saga, DC Police communicated with the public in a clear, calm manner about what they were doing to find the sniper, along with new developments. And they didn’t open fire on any innocents along the way.
Do you see what I did there? I drew a parallel.
So watch this case closely. Sadly, it takes grand scale, public nightmares like this to bring change to the dirty.
