Two women who were shot by Los Angeles police in Torrance early Thursday during a massive manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer were delivering newspapers, sources said.
The women, shot in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue, were taken to area hospitals, Torrance police Lt. Devin Chase said. They were not identified. One was shot in the hand and the other in the back, according to Jesse Escochea, who captured video of the victims being treated. It was not immediately known what newspapers the women were delivering...

maybe we need to disarm cops
Good thing they didn’t have any dogs with them.
And the second shooting was a case of mistaken identity.
This is the kind of stuff that will encourage people to side with Manifesto Man.
(Hmmm, maybe that was his idea.)
And this one wasn't?
I’m amazed at how the cops are so eager to go after a cop killer, but are afraid too go after gang bangers.
The truck had dozens of bullet holes in it. I don’t know how these ladies weren’t killed.
I wish I was their lawyer. These ladies are never going to have to deliver papers again.
these cops should be brought up on charges.
This kind of shooting gives Dorner some credence. Good job losers.
Obviously these cops believed in the old saying; Shoot first and ask questions later.
And maybe this one too; Kill them all and let God sort them out.
I totally understand how this could happen /s
The picture of the truck can be viewed here: Police: 3 dead after ex-cop vows 'war' on other police, their families
Picture #5 (I'd post it but I'm not sure of the copyright issues for CNN)
Those women had God on their side today, its a miracle that they survived and I pray they make a full recovery
You have nothing to fear people. We are the good guys.
In pic #6 it says the police are armed with high-powered firearms. Why doesn’t it say ‘assault rifles?’ And why do the police need assault rifles with high-capacity magazines? Shouldn’t they be carrying pistols with 7 round mags or Citori 28 ga. skeet guns?
It’s the fault of Sarah Palin, NRA and the Tea Party. /s
So they mistakenly shoot up a BLUE pickup truck when they are looking for a GREY pickup truck.
On cops side though I will give them that the first number and letter on the womens license plate are the same as the truck they are looking for.
These cops a scared sh!tless and are shooting at anything that moves.
Pretty sad. But cops are scared today. Going about my business in several LA county areas with different police forces, I saw many, many more cops today out and abut than ever before in one day.
I hope none get shot tonight.
Looking at the picture in #5 I am of the opinion that those holes were not caused by .223 ammo in the "assault weapons" by by the much bigger ammo fired by their duty pistols, probably .40 - but those guns are not "scary looking" yet.
The cheap tin box with a spring that loads probably 12 or 15 rounds is "scary looking" and needs to be banned but the same tin box with a spring that loads 7 is good for now.
I think that is how we are supposed to look at things now if I'm up to date?
If you do the twitter thing #LAPD has been trending on the issue all day and there is a bunch of info there
That’s pretty good but we will probably never really understand the rationale fully. Unless we find ourselves dehydrated near to death or poisoned by acetyl ketones or something.
