Yes, Dorner was a murderer who killed innocent people, [View all]

Likewise the LAPD has murdered innocent people as well. Not to mention that they have been, and continue to be the perfect example of police department that is corrupt, abusive and out of control.

Neither of these contentions contradicts or negates the other. Did Dorner have legitimate grievances against the LAPD? Given the track record of the department, yeah, he probably did. But going on a murderous rampage is not the way to make that point.

However, just because Dorner did go on a murderous rampage, that doesn't negate the fact that the LAPD needs to be cleaned out, fumigated and reorganized. It is a corrupt department that is trigger happy, brutal and racist.

One can agree with the fact that LAPD is a cesspool without condoning Dorner's actions. One can condemn Dorner's actions but agree, both with his assessment and the assessment of many others, that the LAPD is indeed a cesspool that needs to be drained.

This are not mutually exclusive points of view. Both Dorner and the LAPD have blood on their hands.
