How could you not compare the two events? The cops did exactly what Dorner said they would do.
So what regular poster is hiding behind this name?
I don't agree with your suggestion. I believe their are officers inclined to discharge their weapons a little more quickly at this point in time because they are fearful of the former officer's intentions and capabilities. LAPD administrators may or may not have treated the former officer at issue fairly, but the majority of the police contacts and ongoing investigations, (other than protecting threatened LAPD employees) are being accomplished by agencies other than LAPD. The homicide of the basketball coach and her boyfriend occurred in Irvine, Orange County- Orange County Sheriff and Irvine PD are the investigating agencies. . . the shootings in Riverside did include victims who were out of county LAPD officers, but the criminal investigation is being done by Riverside PD and Riverside County Sheriff. The burning of his car occurred Big Bear. . . and San Bernardino County Sheriff is the primary investigating agency. FBI officers have also been involved in all of the existing investigations, and none of the crimes to date (other than threats) have actually occurred in an LAPD jurisdiction.
None of these other agencies have a self interest in how LAPD conducts their own internal investigations. . . indeed LAPD's reputation in outer area agencies is only fair. . . and to some extent LAPD is perceived to be arrogant. Coverup is a non-issue.

The topic isn't funny, but the fact that The Dude wants to "personally" kill anyone who sympathizes with him is funny.
Shut up Nucky.
Where is Jack Bauer? Damn it!
People living in the Big Bear area should give up their guns. Then this guy will likely give up his.

Your a fool if believe what you just typed. 99.9 percent of cops are not good hard working people. Maybe 50 percent on a good day. Cops break the law everyday and they never have to answer to a damn thing.
How do you accidently shot up a blue truck with 2 white women in it, when your looking for a blue truck with a large black male? Give me a break, trigger happy police men once again shooting to kill. Oh and I bet they dont get charged and if they do it will either be thrown out or NO JAIL TIME.
You show him this and he will give up
50%? You're sorely mistaken as well. Are all cops perfect? Absolutely not. However, half are not crooked and each and every one of them puts their life on the line everyday.
Is this a troll? As someone who has family members that are cops, I can assure you 50% aren't crooked. Absurd.

No not a troll, and your family may be good. I will tell you everyday you can read news about police brutality, police misconduct, illegal search and seizures, and planting of evidence. From the cops in Saginaw to the cops recently busted in the Detroit area selling drugs, all the shit you read about the New York cops, and dont get me started about the cops in L.A. Just google it and you will find plenty of dirt out there. Try being black in America and see how your treated in America. And Im not black but most of my friends are and my kids are. I see it.
Just another left wing wacko killing people.
I know a few cops and all of them are good hardworking people. There are bad apples in every bunch however. Also, you do run into the fact that by going every day into the inner city and having to deal with the things they deal with that you can develop a stronger racial preference than you had previously due to the negative interactions you have with those of a different ethnicity.
For example, a family member of mine is one of the best most respectable people I know. He worked in a field where he had to visit homes and work in a lot of bad neighborhoods. He came away from the experience with a very very strong dislike for house animals and a more negative view on the inner city african american community to the point where it created a bias. I would not call it "racist" as it was not strong enough for that.
Personally I never had a biased since I was never even exposed to racism. However for a period of time I had more interaction with the urban african american community near the city where I live and unfortunately it opened my eyes to where the stereotypes come from. The lack of moral compass was at such a higher rate than you see in normal society, it was sad.
I do try to not let that have an effect on my views going forward as I understand that there are different people everywhere.
However I am greatly disappointed in the glorification of the thug lifestyle and I do believe that is a major hindrance that holds the African American community back from reaching a position of higher overall respect in this country.
Also, I have no doubt there are dirty cops and that shady stuff goes on all the time though I would imagine 50% is an extremely low estimate on the number of clean cops.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
I believe the LAPD shot up a blue pickup with two women in it, while looking for a grey pickup with a pissed off black man in it. In looking at that pickup, those cops must have shot 50 rounds at two defenseless women, that thing had a ton of holes in it. Tells me those cops are scared, never gave those women a chance to be identified before they opened fire.
This thing has turned into First Blood, a bunch of cops hunting down an ex-military guy in the mountains who has superior training than they do.
Grapes of Wrath
And here we are discussing Dorner being psycho.
No, dummy. About the LAPD.
