If people couldn’t see this coming, then they have no sense of history.
The rule of law requires a respect for the people who have to live by those laws.
Today, we pick and choose the laws we want to enforce, and we’ve criminalized nearly everyone in the USA.
It’s pretty clear by the actions of the LAPD that they definitely see it that way, or how else do you explain the ‘shoot first’ mode they’ve been in since this has all happened.
The Law has become a nightclub, and either your name is on the list and you’re exempt from the following it (your in), or the law is what the state uses to keep you out of the disco.
Dorner did the due process bit with the LAPD, and thought it was one big corrupt enterprise, and the irony is that he still thinks civilians ought to go around weaponless, so that the cops have all the power. He’s still a member of the gang, you see.
Dorner’s beef here is that within that sort of mindset, the LAPD forgot that every cop is part of the same criminal enterprise, and they know how things truly are. He figured out there is no due process among theives, and like any betrayed gang member he came after the people he thought had their back.
This is how you square his ‘liberalism’ with his actions here. He was part of the system, got screwed by it, knows the system is criminal, and took criminal reprisals against it.
I have no doubt what Dorner was saying was true about getting fired for his partner’s abuse of power. I’m just shocked this hasn’t happened sooner.
The LAPD is a gang, and they screwed the wrong gang member, and now he’s doing what any screwed killer is wont to do - kill members of his former gang, and their family members.
The LAPD are trying to figure out how to put the toothpaste back into the tube now. Dorner’s just reinforced the perceptions everyone’s had of the LAPD for a long time.
Dorner’s killing cops now because no matter what he’s never going to get a fair trial. The scary part for the LAPD is that we all may end up figuring that out, and since they are apparently helpless against one dude, they aren’t going to be any more effective against two or more.

Dorner is dumb....he has a family, too. His mama must be afraid for her life now.
