Here's the thing, the simple masses are much more likely to be outraged about the innocent victims of Dorner than they will ever be about the innocent victims of the LAPD officers.

The police will get a slap on the wrist and the public won't even blink. Dorner is being hunted like a wild animal and the masses will celebrate his death even though he was trying to expose epidemic corruption the only way possible and his victims were no more sacred than the LAPD's victims. It's night and day. People are brainwashed beyond belief.

Granted, the LAPD may be a bad example, since they're exceptionally inept.
I dunno about that.

The cops know most people have too much invested to take a shot at a cop.

It's instant life in prison.

That's not really what I was talking about. I'm not saying we as the public should be outraged more or less by one thing or the other, only that we shouldn't blame the entire LAPD for the mistakes of a few officers. That's all.

If the six idiots who shot up that truck came to your house, with the intent to kill you and your family, you'd be happy to have a gun.

Yes, you might go to jail. But still better than being gunned down helplessly, as these two women nearly were, by Los Angeles' finest.

I really can't think of a better argument for a civilian right to firearms than the LAPD.

I think it's silly that supporters are calling him The Dark Knight.














Everyone should know he's more like Mace Windu.

If citizens are armed then police will have to expect ANY confrontation to have the possibility of turning extremely violent and even lethal. That means every traffic stop, every routine questioning, everything. Think about how many people get into shouting matches with cops, do you really believe that in those scenarios cops would be LESS likely to use their guns when the person is armed? Seriously?

You realize that in many states, most citizens are armed?

Crazy places like Idaho.

So, yes, seriously.

But one should keep in mind that the LAPD has an entire culture of corruption so those who don't fight against it either tolerate it or support it fully which makes them all somewhat complicit.

Dorner (allegedly) fought corruption, and lost his job as a result. If a police officer is aware of corruption but doesn't partake, does their job honestly and with distinction does that make them complicit? Sure. That doesn't mean, at least by my way of thinking, that they should be judged the same as the guys who open fire on civilians. It's chalk and cheese.

Disgusting.
It's bizarre that they know they're searching for one man yet shot multiple times at two people. Where their heads were, at that.

I told myself I wouldn't get into this argument and I won't. You've stated your opinion, I've stated mine. To each his own.

Multiple officers no less (some reports say at least six).

The fact that the two women survived (granted, they are hospitalized) is amazing.

This is unusually egregious, even by the LAPD's already low standards.

Apparently some of the officers involved have been placed on leave.

That's the thing they can't do their jobs honestly. They have to play ball or ignore abuses done right before their eyes. If they snitch they end up on a long lonely road where Dorner and ended up getting mocked and laughed out the department.

Uh huh. I'm not disagreeing with you. All I'm saying is, people shouldn't lump those guys (the compliant cops who do their jobs without incident) in with the ones who open fire on civilians.

Why not? They encourage and empower the arrogant attitude and culture that allow police abuses to flourish.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

If the majority of the LAPD fought against the daily abuses, they would end the next day. So they all share the responsibility in current and future abuses.

I've never agreed with Burke.

Someone keeping their head down and going about their business isn't as bad as shooting an unarmed civilian, not in my opinion anyway. Especially when you consider a lot of those cops who aren't fighting corruption are probably busy using their time doing good work, putting their lives on the line everyday. I'm not going to lump good honest cops in with the trigger happy ones just because they're not running to IAD every five minutes.

Frankly I think lumping them together isn't just wrong, it's outright disrespectful.

Sorry I respect whistleblowers, not the people who empower the corrupt with inaction.

Yes some cops who tolerate corruption help some people but at what cost? Countless victims of unchallenged police abuse.

The whistleblower deserves so much more respect it's not even funny.

I'm just clarifying who deserves respect in my opinion.

The people who fight corruption not the ones who accept it and thereby empower it.

Fair enough.

Other than both having respect for the good cops who fight corruption, I think we'll have to agree to disagree on the rest.

The only way possible is by murdering civilians?

Dorner is no hero in this story.

He tried to get attention as a whistleblower and was ignored by the media and the LAPD chain of command.

Now he has a global audience and has brought the worlds attention to the problems of the LAPD and police corruption everywhere.

Could he have just let it go and live the remainder of his life quietly? Yes, but then there's no chance anything changes.

And by murdering innocent civilians, he has made himself no better than anyone he ever fought against.
