4. Dorner is a murderer

Dorner needs to be put in prison forever.

LAPD needs to be investigated. This is independent of Dorner.

32. Agreed. It is a separate issue. LAPD has had trouble like many other PDs have.

In the city I grew up in the South, in the sixties the problem of police brutality kept on until the community organized and elected officials who represented the minorities who were being abused. They set up a civilian review board, which I have been amazed to learn that some big cities still do not have. IA is not enough. Getting involved is the key, staying on it is the only thing that improves PDs. And if necessary, the Feds need to get into it. LAPD had a Consent Decree to oversee their behavior. There is a mentality that PDs often have that isolated them, and their work is blighting to the spirit. If some of the officers don't come into the work with a psychological issue, they may develop one or PTSD. They have a lot of problems and need oversight. It's not a loss to call in the DOJ.

14. They are. Trust me. LAPD is a gang with badges.

Large numbers of LAPD officers are former street gang members, and they have retained that mentality.

15. Well, for example, they are on an organized crime spree right now.

 

so far 3 people shot for driving vehicles that vaguely resemble his, and scores of homes broken into by the LAPD looking for him.

It's a police crime wave.

....the incident involving the third person shot AT today (he was not "shot") involved the Torrance police, not LAPD.

8. if the Oakland Police are on the edge of a federal takeover, an investigation of LAPD is reasonable

and saying this doesn't justify, support or agree with any of the wrongs that Christopher Dorner has done.

12. I'm willing to admit publicly I'm wrong

yes, the LAPD does many good things I'm sure, but it seems there's too much smoke to ignore the possible fire. As I said above, this is independent of Dorner and I would have said the same thing a month ago.

29. The mayor is not in charge of the PD. That would be the police commission.

And they rubber stamp whatever the Chief of Police wants.

13. They burned Dorner for being a whistle blower 5 years ago.

Now they are the ones investigating the murders he allegedly committed.

The feds definitely need to take over that case before LAPD contaminates all the evidence.

17. Fuck corruption. They're a menace to public safety with their incompetence.

The idiots turning a quiet neighborhood into the OK Corral should be fired and charged. Attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a weapon in public, reckless endangerment...you name it. The remaining LAPD needs a stand down period for some serious retraining and psychological screening.

20. Dorner deserves a trial... with a jury....

 

I'd like to hear what he has to say. He was an officer in the Navy... he deserves due process.

I know there are many here who agree with Drone murder policy and think people should be targeted with no trial , no Jury, no due process.

I am not one of them.

2- Overly aggressive officers
3- The current shootapalooza in LA, nuff said

30. Maybe you like having jackbooted thugs for local law enforcement

up there in Canada, but down here in the US of A we don't much appreciate it. We just have trouble getting our criminal justice system to treat criminal behavior by cops as anything serious.

I live in Connecticut, dill-weed, and I'm a native-born citizen of the United States of America.

We don't have jackbooted thugs for law enforcement here, nor do we have them in NYC where I grew up.

If one makes an accusation or claim, one should be able to explain the REASON for that claim.

Thank you.

41. Well, you're in this thread, attacking people for wanting the LAPD to be investigated

Given the LAPD's reaction to the current situation, plus their very, very, very, very, very, very, very long history of corruption and excessive force, it's quite obvious that there should be some sort of investigation to figure out WTF they're doing.

Instead, you're sitting in Connecticut chewing people out when you know jack shit about the situation. And bashing people for daring to think you selecting a Canadian flag might somehow be relevant.

43. I'm not "attacking" anyone, I just think that if someone wants to see something as drastic as......

.....a large police department being investigated, wouldn't it be fair for that person to articulate the specific reasons WHY he/she wants that investigation.

On top of that, it appears (lacking the specifics for the request) that this is being called for because of the second mistaken identity shooting over the weekend. But curiously, the second shooting was NOT by the LAPD, but the Torrance PD.

Now you get it?
