Useful article! Cashill shows that Dorner’s ‘Serpico’-like animus against the police dept was based on sheer fantasy.
Yeah, that about sums it up. This is what PC get’s ya. I think we all need another dose of cultural sensitivity training.
2 more years til retirement.
Good article —
He was a grievance monger and should have been fired — and should never been hired.
He was probably like that in his military service as well.
I saw an article that indicated that Dorner was a student at Vance AFB in the early 2000s. Vance is a pilot training base, yet I did not see that Dorner had completed the course and gotten his wings. Perhaps this was the first blow - considering that he (and a lot of Holder’s people) seem to take their personal failures as racism.
Of course, I could be wrong...and perhaps he was indeed wronged. But, I really, really doubt it.
I too thought back to Rodney King. It seems like the LA police are always on trial. I've seen at least two or three movies that have faulted them. Although perhaps one or two TV series have extolled them. Where is the truth?
“The LAPD may be the worlds most PC and thoroughly scrutinized police department. Race and gender dominate almost all conversations.”
An opinion, but it rings true. How could it be otherwise in LA government today?
I also thought of the Rodney King case, and I agree with Cashill’s recounting of events.
I remember video from the post trial riots. A police car turns on its siren, approaches an intersection filled with mayhem and violence, some directed at the police, slows, then drives on through.
Where is police protection when you need it? The press, rioters, and many politicians, were anti-cop after the police subdued Rodney King. What should a couple of policemen have done at that intersection? Subdue someone? Would they have be supported if they had stopped and shot a rioter? Best to drive on through. The only acceptable show of force was the siren, and that probably deterred no one.
The Dorner case was brought to my attention by a young liberal at a chess site. His version was so over the top, it reminded me of John Kerry and the Vietnam veterans against the war.
From his writings, it seems that Dorner loved liberals. And it seems that cop killer Dorner is now a liberal cause. Once again liberals are inconsistent. The same libs who love to "rebel against authority" (the cops), want to disarm the populace, assured that we can trust government. Why not just say:
"I live in LA. I hate the LAPD; they are corrupt, dangerous, and abusive. No one should be armed but the LAPD."
I wonder who Reginald Denny will spawn?
