"Stop or we shoot randomly and erratically!"
The above is the result of the LAPD's manhunt for this man, Christopher Jordan Dorner, who has killed three people and gone on the run threatening to kill more, especially the LAPD:
Inside the truck? Two Hispanic women. They didn't, one presumes, look anything at all like Dorner, but their truck did look a bit like his vehicle, and they had the misfortune to be delivering newspapers in it.
On Friday, the street was pockmarked with bullet holes in cars, trees, garage doors and roofs.
Residents said they wanted to know what happened. "How do you mistake two Hispanic women, one who is 71, for a large black male?" said Richard Goo, 62, who counted five bullet holes in the entryway to his house.Still think we ought to arm all our cops, as Gadget wants?
Oh, and an interesting little wrinkle about this particular boastful killer. Something that won't be mentioned in the UK news at all, and is being discreetly erased out of the US media too. But you will hear it in blogs like Protein Wisdom and Patterico's Pontifications: he's an Obama-worshipping, left-wing-leaning, gun control loving whackjob as his full letter (carefully edited by the MSM for publication) shows:
No amount of IMINT, MASINT, and ELINT assist you in capturing me. I am off the grid. You better use your feet, tongue and every available DOD/ NON-DOD HUMINT agency, contractor to find me. I know your route to and from home, and your division. I know your significant others routine, your children’s best friends and recess. I know Your Sancha’s gym hours and routine. I assure you that the casualty rate will be high. Because of that, no one will remember your name. You will merely be a DR# and “that guy” who was KIA/EOW or long term IOD/light duty in the kit room. This is exactly why “station 500″ was created. Unfortunately, orphanages will be making a comeback in the 21st century.
If you had a well regulated AWB, this would not happen. The time is now to reinstitute a ban that will save lives. Why does any sportsman need a 30 round magazine for hunting? Why does anyone need a suppressor? Why does anyone need a AR15 rifle? This is the same small arms weapons system utilized in eradicating Al Qaeda, Taliban, and every enemy combatant since the Vietnam war. Don’t give me that crap that its not a select fire or full auto rifle like the DoD uses. That’s bullshit because troops who carry the M-4/M-16 weapon system for combat ops outside the wire rarely utilize the select fire function when in contact with enemy combatants. The use of select fire probably isn’t even 1% in combat. So in essence, the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle is the same as the M-4/M-16. These do not need to be purchased as easily as walking to your local Walmart or striking the enter key on your keyboard to “add to cart”.And clearly, he's going to show everyone just what he means by going on a kill-spree! With thinking skills like those, it's unsurprising he's washed out of every job he's ever had, isn't it?
And amazingly enough, he has fans! Just like Raoul Moat. And not just across the water, either:
What does one say to that..?
