LAPD Declares Open Season on Citizens?

LAPD Idiots – The recap
In previous posts I mentioned wanton acts of stupidity as the LAPD opened fire on two white women in a bright blue Toyota truck because they were afraid of 1 black guy in a gray Nissan truck.

They fired over 100 rounds at a target that presented no threat other than driving down the road in a residential neighborhood while children lay sleeping in their beds.

The LAPD officers’ response was basically to re-enact the death scene from Bonnie and Clyde, except for the fact they apparently couldn’t hit their own foot if it was tied to a tree.

To recap… here’s what they were watching for :

  • 1 man (black)
  • charcoal gray truck
  • Brand: Nissan

And HERE is what they fired at, without provocation, without a warning:

  • 2 women (white)
  • bright cobalt blue truck
  • Brand: Toyota

LAPD

Without warning, without being fired on, 8 reputedly highly trained police officers fired over 100 shots in a residential neighborhood, and only WOUNDED the target which they’d made zero attempt to ID (aside from them driving a truck).

They violated the basic rules of hunting, they didn’t ID what they were firing at before touching the trigger. They employed deadly force without being threatened in any way whatsoever… rules of engagement that’d lead to a court martial in our current war zone. They did this to US citizens on our own soil.

Note that the holes are in the BACK of the blue truck
So it had already passed them, they should have known it had TWO occupants, not ONE, they were women, and they hadn’t opened fire on anyone. What a bunch of frightened little girls the LAPD hires.

Remember this next time someone says only police should have guns. You know, for our own safety.

They were let off with a slap on the wrist
8 L.A. officers won’t be punished for firing 103 times on two unarmed women

  • They don’t lose their badge.
  • They don’t lose their guns.
  • They don’t have to personally pay the millions in award to the women they treated like a paper target when all they did was try to deliver newspapers.

After a thorough investigation the LAPD’s  answer is along the lines of Hey chill out, we ALL make mistakes. One wonders if they would be similarly forgiving if 8 citizens accidentally fired over 100 rounds at two police officers.

So not only are the officers abject idiots… they reflect the LAPD hierarchy.

LAPD: Californian for “Trigger-happy idiots”

Normally I don’t suggest lawsuits
but in THIS case I hope the woman sues the pants off the LAPD.

In the case where seven LAPD officers were lying in ambush to catch (?) the ex-officer that was murdering cops… and they subsequently opened fire without warning on a pickup (wrong make and color) carrying two females, they are offering to replace the truck (whoopty fuckin do), but they have a few strings attached.

Bad time to get cheap fellas. You’re lucky you were not jailed on criminal charges. California is so intent to criminalize private gun owners, but they let cops use firearms like it’s a  World of Warcraft video game instead of a neighborhood where children are asleep?

dorner mistaken identity massacre

We have stricter Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan
Not only was this a textbook example of such non-existent fire discipline they should be charged with “attempted murder”… how in the hell can they be in law enforcement and fire over 100 shots and score TWO hits. In a residential neighborhood?

Shakiest Guns in the West
There were only seven cops present. If over 100 shots hit the truck (and who knows how many missed) that’s roughly 15 shots per man. If carrying a typical service weapon, a Beretta 92, with a high cap 15 round mag… to get over 100 shots in the truck… it’d mean every one of them EMPTIED the magazine

  • on a vehicle of the wrong make,
  • wrong color,
  • carrying the wrong number of passengers,
  • of the wrong race,
  • and the wrong sex…

In a highly populated area, without warning.  Major WTF? If that’s acceptable, we could train chimps to be police .

NONE of the officers were dismissed, or faces criminal prosecution.

Every officer that fired a round should be dismissed without pension
… then jailed pending criminal prosecution. In this case the only thing the public had going for ’em is that these stupid SOBs are such incredibly lousy shots they couldn’t hit their own foot if it was nailed to the floor.

They cannot legitimately pass this off as “mistaken identity
This was just a bunch of scared idiots that made no attempt to verify who they were shooting and no attempt to seek a peaceful resolution. They were not fired upon, they just sent a maelstrom of lead at the first thing that looked suspicious. There is NO excuse for this trigger happy band. They damned sure do not need to be running loose with guns and badges.
