Wed Feb 13, 2013, 06:52 PM

Open Letter to all you ultra-liberal wimps whining about Dorner being torched.

Who do you think you are? How dare you actually CARE about
this quaint notion of "laws".

That is SO yesterday. WHERE did you guys come from anyway? Are
you time-travelers from the last century? This isn't the Andy Griffith
Show anymore, not even Columbo. Now we just cut to the chase ..
boom! POOF! <--like that.


Get real people. Man-up for Christ sake.

Laws, Shmaws. Who needs 'em.. NOW we got paid killers with badges
& guns transparently enforcing a corporate agenda, we got drones, we
got NDAA trump-cards nullifying our "outdated" Constitution, Congress
is confirming one of corporate America's favorite Thugs to run the CIA,
we got tax-funded domestic Armies of well-seasoned SWAT teams (thanks
to the War on Drugs), we got 100% saturation surveillance, etc. Now we
got EVERYTHING we need, to just cut to the chase and murder "them".

Please understand, this is so much more practical. And not only that,
it's also so much cheaper to just torch or gun down our Evil Doers, rather
than giving them "3 hots and a cot" in some spendy private prison for the rest
of their sorry-ass lives.

Besides, dead lips are zipped lips. It's so much more discrete all around
to take out our Evil Doers summarily, along with their distorted version of events,
and just "get it over with". Their "wild stories" might even be taken seriously,
if known, and we don't want to encourage that kind of pandering.

Don't worry. You won't be next. If you've got nothing to hide, you'll be
just fine, just trust the corporate state, and all those untidy details will be ironed
out, out of sight (mostly - except when it's on the evening news),
out of mind. Well, unless we decide differently tomorrow.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

<-- Please note the sarcasm smilie is "on"

like this. Where Dems & Progressives can really have honest discourse,
especially among the whole range of people who VOTED FOR OBAMA,
which includes me, both 08 and 12.

I guess we'll see how all this pans out.

that the use of tear gas to subdue an extremely dangerous, violent and well-armed killer was justified?

Or is your own simple viewpoint the one that is God's spoken truth?

43. In general, sure, that is a legitimate use of force by police in the appropriate circumstances

 

But I must say I don't like to argue with folks who use certain, what I consider to be, under-handed debate tactics, because it is a waste of my time. So I'll leave you to it, I don't want to be accused of being a commie, satanist and in league with the Ted Bundy fan club, all rolled into one.

117. I don't think the OP is about that. The OP is saying... then they come for you.

When you open up exceptions to human rights or legal rights, or what is right and wrong because you find a person is "bad", you are opening the door to injustice. Once you permit injustices to "bad" people, there is no protection for the rights of "good" people.

This is why the ACLU has to defend the Nazi Party's right to speak. So we all can speak.

30. That is simply not true

Original:

"in this tawdry freak show.

For all we know, it's a staged event, so that massive
surveillance apparatus that Obama's been building can
document how private citizens respond and talk about
it on the internet.

Yes I have a capacity for distrusting impulsive rushes to
judgment mid-way into these kinds of unfolding stories,
where someone goes bonkers with guns ablazing.

I just want the WHOLE story, the WHOLE truth to be told,
not just a dime-store novel with ONE conspicuous villain."

The first time you say you did not scrub Obama:

"in this tawdry freak show.

For all we know, Dorner was set-up, caught-up in the
rampant corruption machine called the LAPD. I'd super
curious as to the back-story here, that's all.

I have a capacity for distrusting impulsive rushes to
judgment mid-way into these kinds of unfolding stories,
where someone goes bonkers with guns ablazing.

I just want the WHOLE story, the WHOLE truth to be told,

oop's... Obama seems to have been scrubbed...

Second edit:

"in this tawdry freak show.

For all we know, Dorner was set-up, caught-up in the
rampant corruption machine called the LAPD. I'm super
curious as to the back-story here, that's all.

Double oop's, Obama is still scrubbed.

Transparency is such a fine thing, no more claiming things that are not true. All of it can be seen here:

"Besides, dead lips are zipped lips."

He was going to say anything not already on record? There was more to the manifesto that could not be written?

Which of these words did I put into your mouth? Where exactly have I lied?

And yes, I'll say it again, creating a conspiracy that this guy has been set up and he is just fighting the evil LAPD (or whoever) is in fact trying to make him a hero.

The post in question posits that Dorner's crimes may be a set up in order for law enforcement to further exploit the tools of Obama's surveillance state. He didn't even make the claim that Obama set it up to expand the surveillance. He seems to pointing at the LAPD as the instigator.

Anyway, people went off half-cocked and read into the words a message that wasn't even there. The post was ill-thought out and 99th Monkey admits to that. (He has admitted it several times) and he edited to better convey what he was trying to say.

One would think that since they know many people heard it, and portions of the audio are flying around the internet,they could at least admit what they did. What are they afraid of? An uprising because they knew it was wrong to do that?

From what I understand of events at the cabin, he hadn't moved or made a noise for some considerable length of time before they decided to use the burners. There's every chance of a fire when setting even one of those off in a wood cabin. And they did this even though they weren't certain he was the only one inside, or that he was still in there. Why not start with non-incendiary tear gas if the goal was to flush him out?

I would have hoped we had better ways of dealing with such people than to jump straight to total annihilation.

They waited however long, and then, instead of trying regular tear gas, they went with the incendiary type. They had to know a fire would result. Their robot had made splinters of several walls. And they had no idea of Dorner's condition.

I'm not saying he didn't deserve to die. There's no question he was out to kill as many LEOs as possible. But that doesn't give the police the excuse to go on a similar vendetta and leap to the most extreme option when other tools are still available.

No, I don't think so. We are talking the difference between using proven and practiced police methods for dealing with a dangerous suspect vs. what amounts to a vigilante execution by law enforcement. Dorner was supposed to be the depraved killer, not the police.

63. According to reporter Max Blumenthal, who was there, there was no

gunfight when the cops burned down the building.

In an initial dispatch, a deputy reported seeing “blood spatter” inside the cabins. Dorner, who had just engaged in a firefight with deputies that killed one officer and wounded another, may have been wounded in the exchange. There was no sign of his presence, let alone his resistance, according to police dispatches.

It was then that the deputies decided to burn the cabin down.

“We’re gonna go ahead with the plan with the burner,” one sheriff’s deputy told another. “Like we talked about.” Minutes later, another deputy’s voice crackled across the radio: “The burner’s deployed and we have a fire.”

Next, a sheriff reported a “single shot” heard from inside the house. This was before the fire had penetrated deeply into the cabin’s interior, and may have signaled Dorner’s suicide. At that point, an experienced ex-cop like him would have known he was finished.

Over the course of the next hour, I listened as the sheriffs carefully managed the fire, ensuring that it burned the cabin thoroughly. Dorner, a former member of the LAPD who had accused his ex-colleagues of abuse and racism in a lengthy, detailed manifesto, was inside. The cops seemed to have little interest in taking him alive.

I just read several "news articles" about the crimes Dorner committed. Funny thing, only one name is even offered up regarding his criminal behavior. Someone steals a car - but the reporter writing up the story doesn't put in the name of the individual whose car was stolen? Several accounts in the news that various individuals saw Dorner doing such and such - but no names to those witnesses????

So far as I can tell, Dorner has been convicted by the press, BECAUSE OF A GULDARN MANIFESTO posted on FB. I am far from being a computer expert, but FB is easy enough to hack, and if the LA Police or any other org wants to take you down, they have the money and can get the expertise to do so.

Not a standard of law I want to see implemented any time soon, but apparently a lot of Americans are A-okay with all this! If the media says it - it must be true!

And ain't it rather odd that both Nine Eleven Hijacker Atta and now Dorner had offical photo ID's that were impermeable to mass conflagrations?? We all saw how the fire at that cabin raged - yet his wallet and his ID survived?? I'd like to coat my house with whatever substance his wallet and his Calif. Driver's License were made of.

Yea, I realize four people were killed but the realization to me has come that this can happen to anyone's property.

Our family was having a crab feast in the backyard when the police jumped the fence from two sides with guns drawn and took position in our backyard as they tried to apprehend my neighbor. He had apparently stabbed someone to death the day before. He wasn't home so they stayed there and waited. Nothing stands in their way. I was actually surprised they didn't tell us to go inside. They pretty much ignored us. So we kept eating the crabs. It was kind of sureal.

48. Sorry for your mistreatment. A reporter, way back in early 1990's, attempted to

Document the number of people who were outright killed, or die as a result, of a SWAT team arriving at their property because they don't get the correct address of their quarry. There were people who ran to the door as police were busting in, and since they had a weapon at their side to defend themselves, they were shot. There were little old ladies and gentlemen who died - nothing like a concussion bomb to go through your front door, start a fire and then with a squad of Nazi Storm Trooper types entering, all at 4 in the Am, the inevitable heart attack followed.

This reporter managed to put together the names of 400 people. And it was a difficult task - often a news media will ignore anything bad the police in their area due, but only report the good they do.

Even last year in Indiana, the local Swat team in Indiana arrived at the wrong address for their drug bust. The activity scared the bejesus out of the teen who had played hookie from school that day. (I venture to say she won't be playing hookie any time soon, not after that!) The news media reported on the police drug bust that occurred later in the day as being successful, and it was only because a neighbor's video of the original attack going viral that the wrong address incident became known in the local media.

They didn't "torch" him. They gave him the opportunity for over two hours to surrender. They had that cabin surrounded for more than 3 and a half hours. He had plenty of chances to give himself up and face the criminal justice system. Instead, he decided to engage police.

That's what the police are for.

He had plenty of chances to surrender. He decided to kill instead. He went out in a literal blaze of glory.

44. The "jokes" and the bloodthirsty

responses on some of these threads are disgusting. Just merely bringing up the suggestion of a trial elicits responses that you, somehow, have no compassion for the people he ALLEGEDLY murdered. That somehow a trial would have been "coddling." I swear some days some of the posters on this board are no better than those on FR.

59. Trials are for people who are in custody. One does not conduct a trial for a gunman shooting

at people. That occasion calls for tear gas and bullets.

Had he surrendered, there would have been a trial.

His decision to avoid a trial.

be taken into custody alive.

Guys who go on shooting rampages generally wind up like this. And trigger happy cops are a much older problem than are drones.

I've heard people who are concerned about the ongoing march
to setting up a national security police state, concerned about
the NDAA, et. al. .. I've heard them described as soft-on-crime
Liberals, too mushy and touchy-feely, etc.

You have not heard such descriptions? Maybe is not as widely

115. No. didn't say that.

I said the cops were NOT sure, til AFTER they found his charred ID.

I think he was too baked to tell, and not from pot.

This whole think is sad and my heart goes out to the victims
and their families.

I do hope, however, that the more conscientious Officers in
LAPD will allow some kind of inquiry into this incident, just
like they do when it's s school that a rogue shooter has some
affiliation with.

137. You act like it was new.

Dillinger was killed without a chance to surrender. Bonnie & Clyde were killed in an ambush.

The FBI had orders to shoot on sight at Ruby Ridge.

The Branch Dividians were torched at Waco. Lots of little kids died in that.

MOVE was burned out in Philly, along with an entire neighborhood.

It is the way we have been doing business for a long time. (Note: I am not defending any of the above as being good guys. They weren't. But they did deserve trials.)

142. What you say is true

sadly, it is not new.

I guess what is new though, is how the government is granting itself a "right"
to conduct themselves this way as codified and refined via the NDAA, which is
linked up with an unprecedented sweeping 100% penetration surveillance apparatus,
that is also new. And now we also have drones being rolled out to be used as
well. So there are some new aspects to all this, and they aren't pretty.

143. How was the policy's conduct illegal?

He was holed up on someone else's property, and they used tear gas to smoke him out. The fire would have had the same basic effect--force him to move from his place of hiding from which he could shoot at police.

He had no legal protection against those tactics given his violent resistance to attempts to arrest him.

This is silliness.

Not particularly about Dorner, but about the what's "new" and what isn't, about guv-mint
abuses of power, you know at Ruby Ridge, Waco and such. I'm frankly tired of talking
about Dorner per se, this string has run it's course pretty much, and I'm tired, it's late;
so I'm going to brazenly ignore your post this time. cheers.

147. Remember the D.C. snipers?

(not as skilled as this guy perhaps, but there were two of them)

They killed a lot of people, over a large area, and it continued for a long time. Yet they were apprehended the old-fashioned way. And then they were put through the entire legal process, both of them. So it can be done.
