Yeah, like an ex-employee is a reliable source for anything...
The left likes him because he appears to be a black leftist loony who has spent his entire life interpreting everything in terms of “The Man” coming to get him.
He shouldn’t even have been allowed on the force.
My feeling about LAPD is that they are overwhelmed, because they really can’t go after the gang-bangers because most of them belong to a protected class, but most of them want to do something about crime there. However, I honestly don’t think most of them have the training to do their jobs, and this is something that the chief should look at. That said, it’s so politicized in LA that he probably can’t even go there...
I have a family member who worked for a leftist oriented police department and life was very difficult for the cops. This resulted in bad decisions...because it is literally a split-second decision when you think somebody is going to fire on you. Only one person is going to go home, and you want it to be you.
The curious thing, in my opinion, is that LAPD appears to be very behind the times in terms of its technology. Why didn’t these cops know (from a screen in their car) what the vehicle they were seeking looked like?

Normally I’d agree with you. But as I said, in this case the LAPD is validating Dorner’s assertions with their actions.
I also don’t think the left is fawning all over him. Initially they reported on him as being a crazed killer and they’ve only changed their tone on the story because of the comments on their own web forums that see Dorner as standing up to official abuse.
Again, I won’t say that I support him, but I also am finding less reason to dispute his assertions as we learn more about the case and as we see the LAPD in action.
