In yet another story detailing how police officers are leaning towards the trend of shooting first and asking questions later, two women were shot by LAPD officers searching for murder suspect and former police officer Christopher Dorner. Dorner is accused of murdering the daughter and future son-in-law of former LAPD Captain Randy Quan, who defended Dorner at the disciplinary hearing in which he was expelled from the police force.
Dorner left a lengthy manifesto on his Facebook page detailing his plans to terminate those responsible for his firing. In it, he alleges that he was fired by the corrupt Los Angelos Police Department who were seeking to silence his whistleblowing attempts.
The former cop and Navy Reservist made it quite clear that he was gunning for members of the police department when he wrote, “I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty.”
Law enforcement engaged in a shootout with Dorner shortly after the killing of Captain Quan’s daughter, which ended with Dorner wounding one officer and forcing another to retreat after riddling their patrol car with bullets.
Hours later, Dorner ambushed two more police officers as they sat waiting at a red light, killing one and seriously wounding the second.
A massive manhunt followed in which high-ranking members of the LAPD were placed under tightened security and police throughout Southern California and Nevada initiated public alerts.
Paranoid and panic-stricken police combed the streets of LA looking for Dorner’s dark gray Nissan pickup, but instead, opened fire on a blue Toyota that was occupied by two innocent women delivering newspapers.
The two women shot by LAPD officers said they had no warning beforehand, the victims’ lawyer told CBS Los Angeles.
Attorney Glen Jonas said Maggie Carranza, 47, and her mother, 71-year-old Emma Hernandez, were delivering newspapers around 5:15 a.m. in Torrance when the officers opened fire on their vehicle.
Jonas said, “There was no warning. There were no orders. No commands. Just gunshots.”
Nearby Torrance police also fired upon another blue pickup the same day, but luckily, no one was injured in that incident, a law enforcement source said.
You can count on these police departments paying out huge sums of taxpayer money in order to keep the victims of these bad shootings quiet.
As I’ve written about recently, trigger-happy police officers delivering street justice because they are scared is becoming the norm. Evidenced by the lack of warning when shooting the two women, it is safe to assume that if Dorner is caught, he will not survive his arrest and police have no intention of taking him into custody.
Modern day law enforcement seem to be rather selective when following their sworn oath and obeying the rule of law, denying many the due process afforded by the US Constitution.
As their search widened, police located Dorner’s dark colored Nissan almost two hours north east of LA, burned, and abandoned. A massive search grid was set up and hundreds of heavily armed police went door to door searching homes for the suspect as a heavy snowstorm blanketed the region.
At the time of this writing, Dorner remains at large and police continue their search.
David Perdue, a white male, was minding his own business when Torrence cops suddenly rammed him off the road and opened fire on him, riddling his truck with bullets.
Cops claimed that they thought Perdue was Christopher Dorner.
Perdue does not look like Dorner, nor does his truck match Dorner’s truck, which is why many Americans around the country are outraged at the incompetence and recklessness displayed by police. Dorner is a large, heavy set black male and Perdue is about 100 pounds lighter – and white. Torrence Chief of Police has apologized to Perdue and offered to replace his truck; my guess, in order to avoid a hefty lawsuit.
As Dorner remains at large, paranoid, scared cops continue shooting innocent people on the streets of California.
