$795,000 settlement

so there is that.

I'm sure the statist authoritarian scum will be in here shortly to defend the cops in question.

Why not give the cops a medal?

They saved the guy from worse injuries when he fell off the curb.

It's stuff like this that makes Dorner's words about the police look more and more credible.

The thing that gets me with Dorner is that he was fired for "making false statements". And these guys get off scott free. S*hit, we have Portland cops who have posted Nazi tributes in a public park, sexually harassed co-workers and shot an unarmed, fleeing suspect in the back and NONE of them got fired. I guess Dorner's cardinal sin was badmouthing another cop.

Sounds legit..

FBI are upstanding types and are here to help the average citizen.  So that guy must have staged it to be spiteful.

Not quite. Even a crazy clock is right sometimes. That doesn't mean it's logical, just that jumping to enough conclusions is accuracy by volume. The LAPD probably is a pile of shiat just like he claimed in his little diatribe. But you can't judge that by him because he's reaching that conclusion from Crazytown and is thus unreliable.

However, the fact that they lit up two different wrong trucks looking for him like a coupla real life Barney Fifes shows they're weak and womanly (in the pejorative viking sense that was actually illegal to use) and they probably shouldn't be police officers at all. Also just look at LA. Apparently it's covered in graffiti and the cops won't come to your house to arrest a drunken driver who has just crashed his truck into it. They will not hesitate to pull you over for not having two license plates, though. This is if Adam Carola is to be believed. He is not crazy and his other observations are sound.

That is the rub. The Crazy Man is correct that the department is awful. However that doesn't mean his reasoning to get there is sound. You can't take his word for it. However, look at the LAPD's actions and look at the hubris that lets an obviously unfair system with a huge bias towards the rich parade around the term "Justice System" as though they even know the meaning of the word. Then draw your own conclusions. Do they measure up or are they just another street gang?

Oh, I'm not saying Dorner is a patron saint of anything.  Of course you have to take what he says with a grain of salt, but the LAPD is far from being clean.

Pretty much THIS.  It is definitely easy for police to get off scott free with all kinds of crimes.  That being said, killing the cops for it isn't the way to go about.  Also, killing cop's families is absolutely never the way to go about it as well.

Gotta have a sense of proportion about this.

You have to take it with a little more than that.

He's illogical, thus unreliable.
 
2013-02-09 08:57:24 PM
Besides the two thirds of the settlement cash I hope he got health care for life for any injuries related to him running into those batons time after time.

Probably not.
 
2013-02-09 09:00:41 PM
This is what happens when you vote for Democrats or Republicans. The guy was lucky he wasn't murdered or tortured to death.

Klippoklondike: That being said, killing the cops for it isn't the way to go about.


Almost assuredly not, but we can't take it for granted based merely on a whack-job's manifesto. Again his logic is unreliable so even seemingly sensible conclusions are untrustworthy.

Every sensible country also has a death penalty. So while killing the police extra-judicially is probably a safe bet to be the wrong plan for various reasons ethical and historical I won't go into great detail on now, that doesn't mean "killing cops" is never the right way to go.

Look at the accusations coming out of India where a girl goes in to the cops to report one rape and is treated to a few more by the constables. That's a gallows no one would regret tossing the lever on if the accusations are true.


So again we see the unreliable crazy man's answers are landing in the potentially correct solution, much like a sufficient number of bullets from a machine gun will eventually hit a certain target on the range. However, much like an out of control machine gun, you'll want to avoid using a crazy person's answers because the risk of missing is much, much higher and you or others will be hurt. It's best to discard wholesale crazy assertions and start again from scratch.

2wolves: Besides the two thirds of the settlement cash I hope he got health care for life for any injuries related to him running into those batons time after time.

Don't forget the cops don't pay that money, the taxpayers do. So they're in the clear while Denver area law abiding citizens will see a tax increase or a service decrease for the alleged sins of the police.

This is what happens when healthcare is for profit and the government is held accountable for money. The government never has any money. That's your money and my money.

I usually find the fbi to be better than the cops when it comes to blue line cover-ups.

That pic sure as shiat looks like police brutality to me.
 
2013-02-09 09:34:44 PM
Look, if the guy didn't want to be beat within an inch of his life, he shouldn't have not been a cop.

Dude should be more careful. Street curbs may be menacing to society in that they are easy to trip over, but they're a necessary evil for channeling water.

Also don't be black.
 
2013-02-09 09:35:42 PM
OK, I had to read that three times to see what was happening here. There will be no FEDERAL charges, but the cops and the city lost the civil suit. Which makes more sense, and the last line of the article had it wrong.

Conspiracy to violate civil rights, as opposed to just beating the crap out of someone, can be a tough nut to prove. But the guy did win the beating case.
 
2013-02-09 09:36:47 PM
At least they didn't unload 50+ bullets into his vehicle.

Have you seen the report of the LAPD shooting two women because they were delivering newspapers in a "similar" blue truck as Dorner?  Or the other guy shot 5 mins later driving a "similar" black truck.  Mistaken identity is a biatch when the police are involved.

You know, for there not being a code of silence amongst cops, there sure are a lot of settlements against accusations of conspiring to cover up police crimes or brutality.
 
2013-02-09 09:38:30 PM
Yea so if a cop is approaching you and he is wearing full leather gloves( and they are not for local weather conditions), its to prevent the evidence of him smashing your face in.

The hell is isn't.  That is exactly the kind of thing you do when genocide is the only answer left.  You exterminate the bloodline, the DNA, the very genetics of evil.

/trolling?  You'll never know.
 
2013-02-09 09:40:14 PM
So, you're saying that this guy got a $795,000 settlement because he slipped and fell down, face first, while the officers were trying to assist him - I mean, arrest him.

/of course, in court, you have to prove your case beyond any reasonable doubt...or the perp(s) go free

We need guns to defend ourselves against the government, but this guy must have done something wrong, and if you haven't done anything wrong you have no reason not to let the government into the trunk of your car or read your private emails.

I didn't even realize he was black until I read that part, because he was so banged up. There's a problem with Judges in this country always taking the police officers' side, no matter what. Cops lie, swearing an oath doesn't mean a damn thing to some of them, evidence must be produced instead of this he said/she said judicial system.

Next tax time, add a line item on everyone's bill:

 Your share of settlements paid to victims of police brutality:  ..........$105.00

People should have to see the cost of always electing the guy who's "toughest on crime".
 
2013-02-09 09:54:36 PM
When was the last time someone heard of one of these asshole cops actually getting in trouble? I don't mean suspended with pay or having to go to consoling, I mean that cops that violated the law they are sworn to uphold getting fired and/or jail time.

Or just randomly shooting the crap out of a truck like the LAPD recently.  Everyone of those so-called officers belong in prison facing attempted murder but they'll get off scott free.  On the bright side, if the victims survive they'll be millionaires very soon.
