130. Dorner is one of the bad guys in this story. A stone cold killer who needs to got to trial.

I would like you to know what I think when I read anyone take lightly the notion that LAPD is corrupt. I also want you to know why I do not cotton to defense of LAPD.
I lived in LA for years, I have a few stories about the cops, the one where they shoot a woman 7 times and hit some bystanders who they told to 'fuck off' is not the worst of them.
Here is the story I think of when I read a line like 'claims he was victimized by LAPD'.
So I'm walking down a street in Hollywood years ago, I come across a woman passed out on the sidewalk, her clothing is askew and not covering her private areas. To me, she looked like a crime victim. I tried to wake her. I had seen a cop a block or so away and I ran back to alert him. I told him a half naked woman was passed out on the sidewalk, she needed help. Here is what that 'officer' told me to do: 'take a free shot'. I had no idea what he meant, so he elucidated...told me she was a junkie whore so if her wares were hanging out there, I should rape her. I was stunned. He refused to radio for help, told me to rape the woman, and walked off laughing. I found a phone and called 911.
When I went to report the cop, his supervisor asked me why I didn't 'take a free shot'.

Just so you know, any words that so much as hint that LAPD is to be taken on their word, or respected in any way cause me to hear, in my mind, that cop saying 'take a free shot'.
There are no good guys in this story, no matter how bad the one is. The desire to make binary calls does not suit this issue.
So I just wanted you to know that for me, the seeming defense of LAPD is absolutely equally offensive as any defense of murder on the part of the former cop. Those who stand up to claim LAPD would never victimize anyone, or who so much as imply that, well, to me they are standing with cops saying 'take a free shot'. That's just how it is.
