Los Angeles Police Caught in Two Officer Involved Shootings Injuring 2 Women Delivering Newspapers
The Guardian Express ^ | February 7, 2013

Posted on 02/08/2013 1:53:13 PM PST by Sopater

It doesn’t get any messier as Los Angeles police officers, involved in a statewide manhunt for an ex-LAPD colleague, came across vehicles matching the one sought by authorities in massive manhunt at two separate locations.

The first location in Torrance involved Los Angeles police detectives from the Hollywood division, who got caught up in an officer involved shooting, which resulted in gunfire injuring two women that had been delivering newspapers. They have since been transported to an area hospital.

The incident took place at approximately 5:20 a.m. in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue according to sources. The extent of their injures has not been made public.

The second incident involved Torrance police, and occurred at Flagler Lane and Beryl Street at approximately 5:45 a.m. No injuries were reported in that incident.

I wouldn't be driving a truck for a while if I were in SOCAL. Just might get all shot up.

... that’s two separate incidents now where police opened fire on a vehicle that they say looked similar to Dorner’s truck.

I hope someone has told the police that his truck has been found and they can stop shooting at every truck that drives by now.

But now, if they don’t know what he’s driving, no one is safe.

The two women that had been shot by Los Angeles police detectives in Torrance were reportedly delivering newspapers. According to a witness, one woman was shot in the back, while another was shot in the hand.

Did the truck have something like “NEWS VAN” or something similar so those Neanderthal cops wouldn’t be shooting at it. I bet it had a dog in there and they heard it barking.

There was no excuse for the shoot, their careers are over and the ladies are going to the bank.

In any scenario, the cops knew they were looking for one black guy, why shoot at two people? The cops SOP is to check the license plate, what happened?

Looks like the S CA cops are pretty jumpy. This is exactly what Dorner wants.

There were two separate incidences. The two women and also some guy that was not hurt. No word on what he was driving or how many times they shot.

Every one of those cops involved should have their badge taken away and be fired. Even go to jail.

I just read about a Utah resident arrested and charged, for shooting a couple shots at the burglar's car when the burglars were fleeing his driveway after breaking in. He didn't shoot to harm the burglars, just to shoot at their tires. So the cops jailed him. According to Layton Police Lt. Shawn Horton, "There is a responsibility of owning a gun: you need to know when you can lawfully use your weapon," Horton said. "You're not authorized to shoot a firearm at a car just because you don't want it to get away, or to scare them, or disable a tire."

Those LAPD cops almost murdered two innocent women in a truck, they weren't trying to shoot out tires. Both women were wounded, from numerous rounds fired into the vehicle. Those cops are reckless and should be fired. Cops should be held to a higher standard or get fired.

Reasoned, rational, professional responses by prime examples of LA's finest.

Superior marksmanship with the entire fifty round fired as well.

Reminds me of a joke I heard a comedian (in an LA club) tell describing standard LAPD procedure in warning a suspect to stop.

"Booom .... Halt!"

That police force has been rogue and a disgrace to their uniforms for a long time. Dragnet was pure PR.

I think we have all poked a little fun at the LAPD over their ATF, Keystone Kops approach here, but something suddenly dawned on me. I believe the cop on the street has orders to not take Dorner alive. I really wonder if there is something they, meaning the brass and politicos do not want out.
Why would they unload not only on these two women, but who was responsible for the “burning truck”.

I think Christopher Dorner is a dead man and we will never get the real story.

If this guy knows about police corruption, they may want to guarantee that he doesn't survive capture.

We don't need drones here, gundog. We need to impregnate an electronic tracking device into every LEO. That way, we would know were they are at all times. And given the seriousness of the current Dorman situation, even ONE renegade LEO is enough to justify tracking all of them.

Hell, that's what they want to do to law abiding citizens.

Reminds me of walking patrols with Iraqi’s. We had to constantly tell them not to beat detainees that were in cuffs.

They couldn’t understand this and argued that beating detainees without cuffs made no sense to them. They thought we were crazy.

It just never dawned on them not to beat detainees.

Standard procedure, shoot first, concoct story later.
The police organizations are always right.
The trucks that were shot were of different color.
But then:
“What difference does it make?”

Yes, one is a blue Toyota, the other is a gray Nissan. Both are Japanese trucks, close enough! Boom, boom, boom! More than a dozen times, then oops... probably the two screaming wounded women was the clue to stop shooting. Based on this, if more cops get killed by Dorner I won't shed a tear.
