Gun Control (by the cops)

Kevin Baker brings us the news…

News out of L.A. last week:

Shooting during Dorner stakeout violated policy, panel rules

Eight Los Angeles police officers who opened fire on two women delivering newspapers in a pickup truck during the hunt for Christopher Dorner violated the LAPD’s policy on using deadly force, the department’s oversight body found Tuesday.

In making its ruling, the Police Commission followed the recommendation of LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, who faulted the officers for jumping to the conclusion that Dorner was in the truck. Beck said the officers compounded their mistake by shooting in one another’s direction with an unrestrained barrage of gunfire.

Reports made public Tuesday offered new details of the hours that led up to the shooting and how it erupted into a wild, one-sided firefight in which the officers fired shotguns and handguns more than 100 times. One woman was shot twice in the back; her daughter received superficial wounds.

A panel of high-ranking police officials that reviewed the shooting urged Beck to clear the officers of wrongdoing, according to several sources who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the case.

Violated policy. POLICY. How about LAW? Common sense? Decency?

So, thirty days without donuts, or do they get a six-week paid vacation (suspension with pay)?

For those who don’t remember, L.A.P.D. has a history of being full of corrupt, mob-ridden, political creatures.  Chief Parker decided to take the Hollywood approach, and use P.R. to shine the agencies image.  TV shows like Dragnet and Adam-12 were the result.

All this while the Hat Squad was operating behind the scenes.

For Hollywood’s take on this, go watch Mullholland Falls and L.A. Confidential.

Rollo Tomasi, indeed!

  1. Those women are incredibly lucky to be alive.
    I’m not usually one to advocate for suing oneself into prosperity, but, I hope those women retire from newspaper delivery to sipping umbrella drinks on the beach.

    • I concur. This is not a case of a stray round that ‘couldn’t be helped’. In my initial CCW class, they taught us any single round that misses is a potential million dollar lawsuit. And this was not accidental!!

  3. Do the cops know now that in a twisted, dark capitalistic scheme to make money, car/truck manufacturers make more than ONE vehicle per color?
    I agree with you and Tomi, umbrella drinks all around…

  5. L.A. Confidential is one of my all time favorite movies.

    All eight of the cops should be fired and never be allowed to wear a badge again.

    “officers compounded their mistake by shooting in one another’s direction with an unrestrained barrage of gunfire.” This made me think of the old Polish firing squad joke. Or the circular firing squad. The truth is usually stranger than fiction.

    One lesson all of us should learn from this. Dornner was one man and paralyzed half a state. Just think what time 10 or even 100 could do.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
