Puppycide: Cops Arrest Man Recording Them, Then Kill His Dog

Read more.

This is disgusting and the man should never have been arrested or even questioned. 

But (braces for hate) the dog did jump out of a car and come at the cops. I guess they could have released the dog’s owner and asked him to contain the dog. But the cop panicked and drew his gun and fired. These are qualities that a man who is paid to carry a gun should probably never possess, especially under times of stress.

But I can understand why someone would get scared and draw a gun on an angry Rott. I’ve owned a Rott and they can be viciously protective. Still, I am sad to see the innocent dog killed, he was only doing what any loyal, well trained dog would do in that situation.

The dog’s owner isn’t without blame here, either. The owner should have known to not leave his windows open to the point that the dog can jump out and then leave the dog and car unattended. What if the dog got out and attacked a child or someone else. It’s not inconceivable

With all that said, the LAPD is a laced with disgusting, authoritative, violent, corrupt and under-trained, over-armed individuals. Killings like this aren’t unexpected if you live in LA and have seen just how most of the LAPD carry themselves and treat (and threaten) citizens. 

The last thing I want to point out that at the time I’m posting this, this thing has 13,000 notes. I’ve also seen this video all over my facebook, twitter and other timelines. Glad that the unnecessary use of force is being seen by many, I’m just sad that cop-on-human violence posts get no where near as many notes or attention as this incident.

"Law enforcement is a brotherhood" - The Media. This is code for, ‘they will kill you if you mess with them’.
Can you imagine if the LAPD put in this much effort to capture child molesters?

New manifesto from another former LAPD officer - former LAPD Officer Joe Jones posted the following to his Facebook with this picture:

I can’t go into re-living the emotions of what I went through so I will say this. I had my home viciously attacked by a gunman with my family and myself inside the house. No arrests were made and my family and I Received very little support. I had my Civil Rights violated on several occasions. I was falsely arrested at gunpoint by the Sheriffs as an Officer who ID’d himself and was conspired against by both LAPD and the Sheriffs when my Civil case went to Trial. I was falsely accused on more than one occasion and simply placed in a position that the trust was so compromised that I could no longer wear the Uniform. Also know there were many more episodes. All of these issues are well documented and I present them not to be a Whistle blower, However to hope that one would not assume that all of what is being said is Lies as presented by Dorner. I don’t know him, But I know me. I will say from my experience, If a person knows they were wrong it is easier to move on without anger. Seems that Dorner obviously could not move on… Could I just be content and move on with my life and not say anything? Yes…Then I would feel that I for once had my chance to speak on something that hurts me to this day and I did nothing to arouse thought or provoke reform. This is what I hope comes from this whole situation:

LTMC: Christopher Dorner was crazy to start shooting people, but he was not crazy about the corruption in the LAPD.  It will be interesting to see if more ex-LAPD officers come out to tell their stories as a result of this incident.

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

LAPD officer used taser on handcuffed woman, then rips open his vest to expose a Superman logo on his chest

beatyourselfup:

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.
