Kinda reminds me of Natural Born Killers. Still, I think the cops shooting up the two other pickup trucks has something to do with it. Thing is, though, it doesn’t make him any better. It just makes them worse.
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?
“Still, I think the cops shooting up the two other pickup trucks has something to do with it.”
Yes, but more than that, it is the powerless cheering for a champion taking on the powerful. Ordinary citizens have been pushed around, bullied, extorted, abused, and sometimes outright murdered by police for years, with little to no recourse. So, even though most people don’t support Dorner killing innocent people (I hope), there is still going to be elation that somebody, anybody, is striking fear into those who have held themselves to be unaccountable.
I don’t think there is support for Dorner; I think there is disgust with the corrupt, trigger-happy incompetents in the LAPD.
It is not the same thing...
