LAPD Shooting Anything That Moves


I am pro cop. Let me get that out of the way. My son-in-law is a police officer and I have full respect for the police. That said, given what’s going on in Los Angeles right now, there is a deep-rooted problem within the LAPD. There’s also a massive problem with the media. Why is it that there’s just a brief article in the LA Times about what happened during the on-going search for ex-cop and killer Christopher Dorner. Some other media outlets gloss over what happened. My question is why. What happened you ask? Here’s the first few paragraphs from the LA Times.

An attorney representing two women who were delivering newspapers when they were shot by police during a massive manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer called the incident “unacceptable,” saying his clients looked nothing like the suspect.

Emma Hernandez, 71, was delivering the Los Angeles Times with her daughter, Margie Carranza, 47, in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue in Torrance on Thursday morning when Los Angeles police detectives apparently mistook their pickup for that of Christopher Dorner, the 33-year-old fugitive suspected of killing three people and injuring two others.

Hernandez, who attorney Glen T. Jonas said was shot twice in the back, was in stable condition late Thursday. Carranza received stitches on her finger.

“Tragically, we believe this is a case of mistaken identity,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck told reporters earlier Thursday about the shooting.

Shortly after, police opened fire on another vehicle. This too was a case of mistaken identity.

From LA TimesPolice investigators work around a blue pickup truck riddled with bullets in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue in Torrance after a police protection team fired on it. The officers were protecting the neighborhood in the wake of threats against an officer, allegedly by former LAPD Officer Christopher Jordan Dorner

Yes, the LAPD is on edge. They have every right to be. Dorner said he’s gunning for them. And what he’s done already, including murdering the daughter of one of the LAPD officers who were involved in his firing, killed her boyfriend as well and shot 3 officers killing one is cowardly and despicable. Dorner needs to be caught and locked away forever. But if even an iota of his “manifesto” which I  posted earlier is true, LAPD needs to be investigated and people need to go to jail…from the top down.
