Dozens protest treatment of Dorner, manhunt methods

LOS ANGELES

Dozens of protesters rallied outside Los Angeles police headquarters Saturday in support of Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD officer and suspected killer of four who died after a shootout and fire this week at a mountain cabin after one of the biggest manhunts in recent memory.

Protesters told the Los Angeles Times they didn’t support Dorner’s deadly methods but objected to police corruption and brutality, and believed Dorner’s claims of racism and unfair treatment by the department. Many said they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorner’s death and injuries to innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him.

Michael Nam, 30, who held a sign with a flaming tombstone and the inscription “RIP Habeas Corpus,” said it was “pretty obvious” police had no intention of bringing Dorner in alive.

“They were the judge, the jury and the executioner,” Nam said. “As an American citizen, you have the right to a trial and due process by law.”

“They were the judge, the jury and the executioner,” Nam said. “As an American citizen, you have the right to a trial and due process by law.”
Why do some people feel that these rights apply only to Dorner and not to his victims.
His claims of racial bias and other abuse by the LAPD were investigated and found to be without merit even through several levels of appeal. Dorner didn't agree with these findings and decided to wage his reign of terror to back his claim of unfair treatment. He struck from ambush and killed four people none of whom were responsible for his complaints of mistreatment in his tormented life.
Dorner felt like no one ever gave him the credit he deserved. His opinion of himself far outweighed what others saw in him.
Try as he might he just couldn't achieve the status in life he sought for himself and thought he was entitled to. He perceived all of his problems in life as the fault of someone else rather that the result of his own actions. He failed his first attempt at the police academy because he accidentally shot himself in the hand.
He was terminated from LAPD during his probation period for lying during an internal investigation. Allegations of Dorner crying on patrol should have raised red flags and caused a psychological evaluation early in his short career as a probationary cop. This is another example of how our mental health system has failed us all.
By taking his own life Dorner gave up his day in court and his right to have his case heard.

Unbelievable !! I can't believe I'am reading that some people are supporting this guy who killed four people.These people are just as sick as Dorner was. you can bet that those signs would not be held up if it was their child,brother,sister,or relative that was gunned down.

The LAPD are murdering monsters. They murdered Oscar Grant and so many others. Now they murdered Dorner. It is a standard modus operandi - compare Dorner to Waco, Rainbow Farm, MOVE. In the case of MOVE your beloved cops burned down an entire neighbourhood, cop-lovers' homes and all - and they admit that they did it.

Dorner's demands were basically just. He was cornered because he was denied justice by a corrupt, racist system. Some people will snap when put in this intolerable position. Why did the system never negotiate with him? Because it wants to keep its racism and corruption in place.

Object to Dorner's methods all you want, but YOU have no rights because of the people HE was fighting. And remember that it is because of cop-lovers that peaceful attempts to change the system - attempts like Occupy - are violently crushed.

The police apologists on this site whine about "innocent people", but what about the innocent people the police kill, beat, torture and jail every day? What about the innocent people they shot during this manhunt? What about the innocent people Dorner was fighting for, whose lives are ruined by racism and corruption?

And if absence of due process when someone commits a crime is an excuse for police and courts to abandon due process then this means that due process will NEVER apply. So you want to live in a society with no due process? I say we deport you cop-lovers to North Korea. Then you can learn what it's like to live without due process rights.

In any case, you know very well that, if Dorner's victims were racist, corrupt cops, they would NEVER receive a fair trial in the US, they would be acquitted because of police-worship and racism, just like the Rodney King officers, just like Mehersle. Most likely they would never be brought to trial, while Black men do 30 years for stealing an ice-cream, while innocent men are on death row.

You don't care about innocent people. You just enjoy seeing a Black man burned alive. You hate that someone other than your beloved state-hired hate-mob decides to fight. If you people were alive three centuries ago, you'd call George Washington a "terrorist killing innocent British troops" because he "thinks he's entitled to evade his taxes".

RIP Dorner. Now jail the cop who have the "burn him alive" order, and institute a full inquiry into his allegations - and finally purge all the racist and corrupt cops from the LAPD.
