And their names are Maggie Carranza, Emma Hernandez and David Purdue.

One of them was a 71 year old woman, shot in the back twice. None of them fit the description for Christopher Dorner. They weren't warned, they weren't asked to identify themselves and their IDs were not confirmed first before action taken.

Christopher Dorner killed 4 people and terrorized a community. He killed two innocent people who did absolutely nothing to him and 2 public servants doing their jobs. The murderous actions of Christopher Dorner was wrong and he is dead.

What law enforcement officers did to 3 completely innocent people was wrong. Thank God they are all alive. Shoot first, ask questions later should never be standard operating procedure.

While we mourn, remember the names and honor the memories of Dorner's victims, I hope we do not forget the names of these 3 people whose only mistake was going about their daily lives.

1. In 1986 the LAPD shot a very good friend of mine in the back of the head as he was driving. His

crime? He happened to be driving the same kind of car of someone the LAPD had been chasing. They made themselves the judge, jury and executioner that day. The family did win a wrongful death lawsuit against them, but that didn't bring back their son. This has been the LAPD's practice for a very long time. I love both policemen and firefighters, but just the good ones. The LAPD, IMO, do not deserve love, trust nor respect. If you Google LAPD corruption, there are over a million hits. All of those hits can't be wrong.

2. Booster

I am so sorry at what happened to your friend.

I became aware of the problems in the LAPD when Rodney King was assaulted. They do have a terrible reputation and not much has changed.

This was the point of my post about those 3 people. It should not have happened. The media has been pretty silent about these 3 and I really haven't heard much from the two police departments involved.

What happened to them should not be forgotten.

3. I totally agree. I hope they also sue the LAPD. They have an excellent case to do so.

5. Thank you for caring. It was a long time ago, but I still think of him often. You never get over

the loss of a loved one. You just learn how to get on with your life.
