Skip to comments.EPIC POLICE FAIL: You won’t believe L.A. cops are getting away with this mistake
Posted on 01/23/2014 5:34:48 PM PST by Half Vast Conspiracy
In pursuit of a dangerous black male killer, Los Angeles Police Department officers mistook two Latina woman for the suspect and fired one hundred shots.
Then, Torrance Officer Brian McGee thought he saw the suspects vehicle and rammed into it at full speed, nearly killing the innocent driver, David Perdue, a white man. McGee also fired three shots at Perdue.
But L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey has decided not to press charges against McGee, since his error was a reasonable mistake.

So, the only way to protect yourself is to hide during this kind of manhunt.
a reasonable mistake.
That should be qualified: “A reasonable mistake ... as defined by the mentally deficient LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck”.
No pensions, no bennies, no immunity, no unions, 130+ IQ, 4 years of college including criminal/constitutional studies. Triple the pay. And poof... majority of problems go away.
Boston west, basically.
And in Boston as they rolled down the city streets, then under Martial Law, they were screaming, “Don’t look out your windows..!” over and over, hundreds of times.
They construed LOOKING AT THEM as a hostile act.
Apparently better at aiming a car than a gun.
Perdue is lucky he doesn’t look like a dog.
In dealing with the government, the following rules apply:
You screw up, you pay
The government screws up, you pay
You lie to the government, you go to jail
The government lies to you, everyday, all the time.
The claims that “cops get their blood up” during a hunt for a cop-killer is roughly the same excuse that looters use during a power outage. It’s for the exact same reason: an excuse to cut loose and run wild.
The only thing that I wouldn’t believe would be the cops getting away with shooting Democratic elected officials.
Triple the pay and 1/3 the head count.
They should win a lawsuit over this. Wasn’t even the car a different color?
you can’t expect perfection from storm troopers whose specialty is killing dangerous cocker spaniels.
I noticed back in the 90s that American cops were morphing into jack-booted thugs.
Definitely fewer cops required, not sure to 1/3. A lot of money would be saved in tossing the pensions.
The above photo has been Photoshopped by somebody for the police department and for press release, in order to SMUDGE and MAKE LESS VISIBLE:
all the bullet holes in the right side of that truck's window.
An earlier version of that photo, *not* Photoshopped:
You can actually see in the un-re-touched, second photograph, that it's easier to observe THE POLICE OFFICERS CARE-LESS-NESS AND CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE AS THEY TRIED TO KILL EVERYBODY IN THAT TRUCK!
The police were not just trying to kill Dorner, the perp, rather, the police were gunning to shoot almost anybody!
The police involved, should be dismissed without pay, no benefits, and charged with ATTEMPTED MURDER.
My neighbor and I share an outdoor stairway. My neighbor had called the cops because an unattended 5 year old was wandering the apartment complex.
For some strange reason, I had chosen the same moment to take Lynn-Dah-The-Dawg (a black female lab) out for her walk. As I started down the stairs, an officer in FULL RIOT GEAR was coming up!
Then the strangest thing happened...I placed myself between the cop and my dog and boldly asked, “May I help you?”
“”Other Apartment” he grumbled, and I let him pass.
He might have shot me, and probably would have gotten away with it.
130+ IQ?!? The IQ AVERAGE is 100. Above average is 115-120. Over 130 and you’re MENSA-grade intelligent. That’s less than 3% of the population of the world.
“He might have shot me, and probably would have gotten away with it.”
Why on earth would he shoot you?
There was a story yesterday from Ohio where a cop watched hard core porn with a “pre-teen” and masturbated with him.
The Prosecutor said “No crime”
Cops went into full hysteria during the Christopher Dorner incident...No joke..
They were ready to shoot anyone and anything that even remotely resembled him or his vehicle...In fact they went after targets that didn’t even remotely resemble the suspect or his vehicle..
One shoots and they all started shooting...Just hearing shooting over the radio and others started shooting anything that moved.
When they were the target it was most interesting and rather disturbing how they they reacted...
I’m sure that many thought that the extermination of the Jews was “a reasonable mistake”.
So, this guy could have done ANYTHING to ANYBODY and it would be excused.
Triple the pay.
That would be $300,000 here in SoCal.
They obviously are graduates of the Fullerton Police Academy.
Are you sure about those ranges?
I think it’s worth considering given the criteria. We’d end up with the best. Remember, no pensions, no bennies, no immunity, no unions, no tenure, no guarantees whatsoever.
Again, that 60s song, “Pigs”, comes to mind. It closes, “If you’re big, strong and stupid, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department wants you.”
because i challenged his authoritah.
oh cmon its not like they are going to intentionally burn someone to death.
“And in Boston as they rolled down the city streets, then under Martial Law, they were screaming, “
Where? When? Who ordered it?
“I noticed back in the 90s that American cops were morphing into jack-booted thugs.”
That’s because in 1993 Janet Reno fired all the US Attorneys to cover up what was in 15,000 FBI files on complaints filed against police.
They’ve pretty much had free range ever since.
You’re democrat controlled city govts cover police misconduct up to avoid/lesson civil liability.
Like a bunch of dumb dogs barking and chasing a cat that happens across their path and darts across a field. About as useful.
Rousting people from their homes, ordering them not to look out their windows and pointing a firearm at a citizen in his own home will suffice until the real deal comes along.
Again,when was Martial Law ordered and who ordered it?
Nobody announced it, they just did it.
“Nobody announced it, they just did it.”
Not Martial Law.
Well perhaps you want to argue with the military looking guys rousting people out of their homes while holding guns to their heads.
see how far that gets ya
Martial Law was not declared and throwing around misinformation is a waste of time.
That’s the whole point. It was chaotic but no Martial Law.
A distinction without a difference.
They used military force against citizens prohibiting movement of all citizens, searching their homes, forcing them from their homes and threatening deadly force.
I don't think so.
Those are evidence tags, and it appears they had not got to the passenger side of the vehicle yet. Also the images were taken from different angles and different times.
"Rousting people from their homes, ordering them not to look out their windows and pointing a firearm at a citizen in his own home will suffice until the real deal comes along."
This was not panic. This was out of control men who wanted to kill someone. Anyone, anywhere. Anytime.
I said panic because they were out of control. Either way a very very poor way to conduct police work.
A quick glance at the calendar tells me we should be beyond the "Well...y'all look alike to me" excuse by now, even in LA.
Agreed. They might not have “declared” martial law, but if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, a reasonable and prudent person could not be faulted for calling it a duck. Primarily, because it’s a duck.
Yes, Martial Law.
Martial law doesn't have to be called "martial law" to actually, legally be martial law.
That IS the law on martial law.
Why not? they got away with it in the Dorner incident. They not only got away with it, they had their defenders on this forum.
