Anonymous asked: how many people does it take to catch one person? do you think the cops are afraid of him because of his '14 page manifesto'? (in reference to the chris dorner thing that's been on the news for the past thursday in southern california) & what are your thoughts about this?
I have no idea, but according to everything I’ve read, this guy has been in the military for over a decade, a cop for almost 4 years, he’s an expert shooter, expert in tactics and response, and he has a seriously high security clearance.
My first guess is that this guy is seriously armed and seriously capable and obviously very willing to kill, not just the cops he’s looking for, but all cops and even civilians.
Add to that the fact that the LAPD seriously overreacted and shot at innocent civilians. The public, nationally, was very displeased with that and it proved Dorner to be right about the police being very abusive of power and foregoing public safety.
So this hampered the LAPD search efforts a bit because they had to tone it down a little and be very cautious as the public wants them to take action and yet they are very weary of the aggressiveness of their actions.
Another thing to consider is that Dorner might be gone. There is a tiny chance that he killed himself, but I doubt that, given his tone, plan of action and his goals. He doesn’t sound suicidal, he sounds like he’s on a mission.
The other possibility is that he died, which is likely, given where he ditched his car and the weather conditions this week. Or it could have been a decoy to burn the car in Big Bear and that brings us to the third and, in my opinion, the most likely scenario; Dorner has left the state and most likely the country.
He wrote two different 10+ page Manifestos, which tells me that he’s planned this out all the way through, especially when you consider his military and tactical background.
Anyway, I hope they catch him, because I’m not really a fan of murder. I also hope that the cops don’t kill him and he comes in alive and gets to spill the beans on just how corrupt and disgusting the entire LAPD mafia is.
I doubt they bring him in alive, however. There’s just too much dirt on the LAPD and he seems willing to talk and the cops seem willing to kill-on-sight.
Ex-LAPD cop hates fellow cops for being racist and abusive, shoots 3 of them. LAPD goes on man hunt and shoots 2 innocent civilians.
The circle of (violent) life.
LAPD officer used taser on handcuffed woman, then rips open his vest to expose a Superman logo on his chest
A Los Angeles police officer shocked a handcuffed woman with a Taser stun gun while joking with other officers at the scene, according to interviews and law enforcement records, adding to a series of controversial use-of-force incidents at the LAPD.
Officer Jorge Santander then appeared to lie about the December 2010 incident repeatedly in written reports. The three other LAPD officers who witnessed Santander stun the woman all corroborated his version of events when first questioned and failed to tell supervisors that one officer had recorded a video of the encounter, the records show.
The video shows Santander firing the Taser without warning and later displaying a Superman logo he wore on his chest beneath his uniform, according to the records. Off camera, another officer is heard laughing and singing.
The details of the case were outlined in a memo written by a prosecutor in the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office that was obtained by The Times. Police officials confirmed that Police Chief Charlie Beck is seeking to have Santander and the three others fired. All four have been suspended since shortly after the incident.
The D.A.’s office concluded last year that the video and other evidence were not conclusive enough to prove that Santander had committed any crimes, according to the prosecutor’s memo. Prosecutors also declined to charge the woman.
This marks the fourth time in the last few months that cases have come to light in which LAPD officers are accused of using force on suspects who had been restrained.
