The calm of the early morning was broken by the sound of gunfire. As the echo dissipated, the ground was littered with spent shell casings, a pickup truck was adorned with bullet holes, and a 71 year old woman was shot twice in the back. Her 47 year old daughter only sustained minor injuries. These two are victims of one of the latest random, mass shooting sprees reported across America. This time the shooters are not drug-addled whack-a-doodles shooting up a movie theater, school, or other gun-free zone. No. This time it is the domestic terrorist group called the LAPD.
These two women were not doing anything nefarious. To the contrary, they were just earning a living by delivering newspapers. In the search for a large black man (that bears a resemblance to LL Cool J) driving a gray Nissan Titan; police attacked two petite Hispanic females driving a blue Toyota Tacoma. Close enough?
The LAPD has called this a case of mistaken identity. “The women were victims of a tragic misinterpretation by officers working under incredible tension,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck says.
Yeah… no S**t!!!
And not to be outdone, a few minutes later and not so far away, another group of cops from the Torrance PD rammed a black pickup truck (getting closer to gray) and shot it up. There were no injuries reported to the driver. I am not seeing a pattern of actually trying to apprehend the suspect here.
So what started all of this senseless violence? It appears that a former member of the LAPD gang , Christopher Dorner, is carrying out a vendetta against his former gang. Dorner was kicked out of the gang a few years ago. He was fired from the gang after making accusations that another officer assaulted a suspect with Severe Mental Illness (SMI.) The accusations were found to be baseless. It’s not like the LAPD has a history of brutality and cover-ups, right?
News reports also implied that Dorner suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from his overseas deployments to the Middle East. Dorner is alleged to have posted a manifesto (which I have not yet read) railing against the LAPD and has developed his own “kill list.” What’s wrong with having a kill list? By many accounts he is also a gun-grabber, Obama-humper, and a total statist as well. He is not somebody that most will have a whole lot of sympathy for. There is a very good reason why people should care about how this ends. (continued below video links)
Dorner’s car was found burnt (probably not a drone strike) near the resort area of Big Bear. A “First Blood” scenario has ensued. In this press briefing, a cop lays out the plan for the manhunt. Listen carefully to his words.
WHY SHOULD YOU CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO DORNER?
Dorner may very well be every bit as evil as portrayed and guilty of every act that he stands accused of. As of right now, he only stands accused. If we pretend for just a couple of minutes that this is a nation that obeys its own laws and not a people under occupation of despotic forces; then he should not be murdered in cold blood without a trial. The accusations have come from the media and the police which are not the most reliable sources. It is remotely possible that the information fed to the public is incomplete, inaccurate, or even plain BS. It is remotely possible that he is a whistleblower running for his life. It is also remotely possible that he is guilty as Hell.
The reason that people should care is that this incident sets a precedent. This “crisis” is just the right thing to expand the police state even more than it already is. Every expansion of the police state has started with a crisis, either real or imagined… even an isolated event.
Death Squads: The behavior of the cops has not been the behavior of looking to arrest and put the suspect on trial. It appears that the plan is “Shoot to Kill.” Is this Central America where the government and warlords send out death squads to deal with malcontents? Is he too dangerous (trained by the US military and LAPD) to attempt to apprehend? What happens when death squads become a legal precedent instead of just being cops out of control? What makes killing cops worse than killing non-cops? What information does he have if he is a whistleblower?
Do the citizens have any expectation of privacy? As the post 9/11 world has shown, the privilege (not the right) of privacy is something to turn on and off like a lamp. After the formation of the TSA and Department of Homeland Security, privacy has been decreased greatly. The agencies that
were sold to the public with the false advertisement of “keeping us safe” and meant for the “foreign terrorists,” have pointed their guns inward as did the East German Stasi. Now every activity is monitored from financial transactions to phone calls to videotaping our every activity.
Going back to the death squads, the cop in the Big Bear video talked about using their tanks and aerial surveillance. MSN.com has an article Report: Fugitive alleged killer is target of police drone. It does NOT say that an armed drone is being used. Would it shock you if it was? Anwar Al-Awlaki was an American killed in a drone attack. He was accused by the government and the compliant lapdog media of being a terrorist and a high ranking figure in Al Qaeda. No evidence was ever provided to support those claims… or for his 16 year old son that was murdered by a drone just a short time later. Many supported, or at the very least, tolerated the drone strike on Anwar Al-Awlaki because he was “a bad guy.” Now the Middle East is a free fire zone. What is really to keep the government and its armed enforcers from disposing of others that are deemed bad guys?
I personally have no belief that Dorner is squeaky clean. But I will defend his life and rights lest it be you or me in their sights next. Do you remember when the police motto was, “To serve and protect?” That was the old days… before it was changed to, “We treat you like a King.”
