Bingo.

60 rounds?!?!
We really have to train those shootists. How many rounds did not even find the vehicle?
Maybe give them ASSAULT WEAPONS so they can get 1 shot/ one kill like Piers Anthony.
He can kill 60 Americans in one minute with an AR15, so he says, loudly, repeatedly, confidently, on his farkin' TV shill fest.

/Bonnie/Clyde assassans were at least good shots

optikeye: Amazing that the cops mistook a 41yo white woman and a 71 yo white woman for a large black man...and then opened fire without any warning.


The two women now say they had no warning before they were caught in a hail of bullets by officers, and it is remarkable that they survived.




FTA, "Beck has called the incident "a tragic misinterpretation" by officers working under "incredible tension""

So you see, it's just "incredible tension."

The officers who shot the mother and daughter have been put on paid administrative leave.

Cops are special people who are more responsible than regular citizens, that's why we should give up our guns and arm them will full military hardware!  -This is what some people STILL believe.

Sending these local yokels after Dorner is really STUPID in the most perfect sense.

Any "real" police force would issue locate, do not approach orders.

As much as it looks like he's guilty, legally he's innocent until proven guilty in court. Yet the LAPD is making no effort whatsoever to apprehend him. They opened fire on the truck without saying a word. Their goal is to murder him.

Sorry, kiddies, but you need to disarm all cops below state police level.
Give 'em really LOUD whistles and video cameras.

Last week, a school bus driver died to protect children on his bus.

Two months ago, 6 teachers died to protect the children in an elementary school.

We are constantly getting casualty reports from Afghanistan.  Not too long ago, from Iraq.

Why?  Because these people all understood that it was their job to get in front of bullets to protect their charges.

Now, the LAPD is freaked because someone might want to kill them.  So they shoot up two trucks because someone thinks they might be hiding the "bad guy".

What a bunch of cowards.

At least Anthony is a contributor to civilized society.

C'mon, we're talking about women here.   They probably would have totaled the truck that day, anyway.   So take the new truck (with larger makeup application mirrors) and be happy.  Amirite?

//not really.   and LAPD cops are scary.   Glad the women survived.   Hope they sue the shiat out of the LAPD.

elffster: Sue the fark out of them.  Then maybe (probably not) they will think twice about letting idiots w/ guns and badges loose like that.

Probably not.

But sue the fark out of them.  $150m payday or more.  Fark the LAPD.  Idiots.


Unfortunately the taxpayers will pay that bill and officer McShooty et al. will go unpunished.

This isn't possible.  I was told that cops are the only people responsible enough to have assault weapons and high-capacity assault clips.  They're here to protect us, they're the only people with the training and accountability to responsibly use their weapons in public.

Yep. If Dorner's smart, he's left the state while he's got them thinking he's hiding in the mountains or something. The LAPD's actions are just proving his points, and as they continue to flip the fark out, more and more people outside LA take notice. Hopefully, this results in some serious investigations and crackdowns on the LAPD's corruption, and hopefully *that* results in other corrupt PDs cleaning up their act.

/Yes, I know that's about as likely as snow on the surface of the sun.
//Yes, I think Dorner needs to be arrested and tried, and, if found guilty, locked up for the rest of his life.
/// No, I don't think he'll get a fair trial even if he IS arrested and not murdered. Especially not in LA.
 
2013-02-10 10:44:56 AM

BillCo: Officials are going to reopen the original investigation so they can prove that there is nothing to Dorner's accusations.

Can you say "whitewash".


Someone pointed out in an earlier thread that reopening the case exempts it from FOI requests because it is an open case.

Sixty rounds is not surprising.  In a group, once one starts firing they all empty their guns.  This would have made a nice diversion for a flanking attack.

I probably should've clarified that by "the f*ckers," I meant the LAPD.

and

F*ck the LAPD.

You folks believe the lapd is unique in this level of incompetence, criminality and violence?

Wow. Looks like a few cops need to spend more time at the shooting rangethe rest of their sorry lives in jail.

I'd demand one of the up armored Silverado pickups that GM Defense (well now GD) sells if I was those women.  Or perhaps a Tahoe, I can happily point them to the models that have a remote control chain gun on the roof and shrug off anything short of a RPG to help them through future LAPD encounters.
 
2013-02-10 10:48:12 AM
In the course of this thread I have read that the newspaper deliverers driving the truck are:

Women
White women
Asian women
Hispanic

I'm going to have to say they're Native American.

Speak for yourself.  There's plenty of people right here on fark who believe that.  So no, it's not a troll and it's not a strawman.

It's also fairly interesting, to see that we have Christopher Dorner, a pro gun control, piers morgan/obama fan who's decided to go on a shooting rampage just to make a point.

By accepting the truck, they will be waiving their right to sue the department for any further damages, with the courts saying that the truck is sufficient compensation

Just like a group of 8 year olds.
I mention this because I have experience with training Boy Scouts and they display much better shooting dicipline.

The women have a lawyer.  Unless this lawyer is like Quan and purposefully sandbagging cases to protect LAPD, no way he'll let them accept the truck.

Bets?  An "independent investigation" will show that the officers acted with "justifiable reactions to a stressful situation" and recommend that they "be returned to active duty without delay, and reimbursed for any missed pay during their time off".  The district attorney will also be filing charges against the two victims for assaulting police officers by throwing newspapers at them.

It was in his manifesto.  Read the the unedited version, not the heavily-edited one the MSM published.

Sixty rounds and probably 2.shiats.

Between the mass shooting in NYC (which was a random asshole with a grudge against a co-worker) and this, can police hit the side of a barn under pressure?

I heard this was security detail protecting some house, not sure if they had something better then a 9mm glock.
Assuming 9mm glock at 15 rounds a magazine, that is two magazines each for two cops.
