I Was All Set To Post Something Positive And Funny Today…

February 10, 2013

…and then I read this.

For those of you who don’t click, it’s an article about the fans that Christopher Dorner, the LADP officer who murdered some people this week, has accumulated.

They think he’s a hero, “fighting the man,” for the little people. I think he’s a a highly trained person with a gun who, until he started his killing spree, would have been the very definition of a “responsible gun owner.”

Here’s a quote

“the hero LA deserves, but not the one it needs right now … He’s a silent guardian, watchful protector against corruption, he’s our Dark Knight.”

I don’t know about anyone else but I do not require a “dark knight,” because I do not live in a fucking comic book! I live in the real world wherein having someone hunt down your daughter and shoot her because they don’t think you did a good enough job defending them.

Dorner posted a rambling, Unibomber-esque manifesto  to his personal Facebook profile, delves into controversial subjects for the LAPD — accusations of racism among officers, blatant use of the “n-word” within the department and charges that police used excessive force on people with mental illnesses.

Assuming that he is being totally honest, which is not an assumption I am making, who gives a fuck? I mean really, racism is a fact of life in America and no matter how bad anyone’s personal experiences have been it’s never an excuses to go on a killing spree.

Look I know, I know, there are a lot of possible political and social points of view on this case. I know that none of us are really privy to the truth of Dorner’s accusations but can we all please just agree that shooting spree is not an acceptable debate strategy? Please? Can we all not agree on that?

The fact that this guy is developing a following and a random is, frankly, reprehensible. Even more so, is the fact that, once again, the victims Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence are dead and the man who shot them, after being fired from the LAPD, for making false statements, is being lauded as a hero.

    I am freaked out by those willing to excuse his cold calculated MURDERS of INNOCENT people because “we all know LAPD is corrupt”. Even if it is 100% corrupt and he was the only honest person on the force how is killing their families justifiable? These freaks always have their followers though and the Internet makes it easier for them to do their thing.
