1. You got that right.

If my man fit that description I would beg him to stay home until this is resolved.

something along the same lines. (I thought the older woman was Asian, but that's really not the point.)

4. most black men are used to being treated badly by cops so i think many

are prepared . but yeah, there is a bit more chance they will be harmed with what is happening now.

And you drive a car. Seems to be a bad combination.

10. I don't blame them

What I do not get is why the investigation is not being headed up by the Irvine police department, since the original murder occurred there.

6' tall 300 lb black men might be the safest people in L.A.

15. It's not so great if you are delivering newspapers or surfing either...

But, at least they got the gender of the last victim right. Plus I heard from another DUer that he was also a biped.

26. CNN had some clips of him in training-running and shooting anyway

Dang, that guy is one big unit. Solid, and with the kind of heft to him that looks like he has some heavy bone structure along with a heavy muscular structure. I can't think of the name of the body type, and those clips must have been taken years ago, but he is one solidly built man.

34. Although

From what I've read, you could be a skinny, short white guy or a petite Latina, and you're just at risk. Maybe if everyone in LA stays home, then the only guy on the road would be Dorner, making it easy for the LAPD to nab him.

35. Given the race, sex and ethnicity of whom the cops have been shooting at,

 

It would suck to be anybody in southern California right now. Apparently everybody is a suspect, everybody is a target.
