SSCC #518 – LAPD

Two women who were shot by Los Angeles police in Torrance early Thursday during a massive manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer were delivering newspapers, sources said.

Tell me, if someone threatened me and I opened fire on a car full of innocent people where would I be right now?  These officers will not be punished despite their gross negligence of firing into a truck that was the wrong color to boot.

Of note though look at how the actions of a single man have put one of the largest police forces in the country on its toes.  Tell me, how is it going to work attempting to confiscate guns from a bunch of people who don’t want them confiscated?

State Sponsored Criminal #518: The Entire LAPD

Because when some nut job is threatening you, you can shoot whoever the hell you want without any restraint.  You’re in fear for your life right?*

*Yeah that excuse doesn’t work for the rest of us so why does it all the sudden work here?

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

    I think what’s important here is that the cops ‘felt threatened’. Yeah, that’s it…

    It’s actually amazing they weren’t killed with how many shots they fired, cars don’t stop bullets all that well.

    • Barron says:

      Sorry, but if I claim that I felt threatened because someone threatened me and lit up a car belonging to someone else, where would I be?

      No, in order to feel threatened you have to have an immediate threat clearly identified.

      • Pyrotek85 says:

        Which is why it’s crap. They didn’t even identify their targets, unless they meant to shoot the two women.

        Some people have tried to justified the cops actions because the car fled or some other nonsense, but what would you do if plainclothes officers rammed and then started shooting your vehicle when you knew you didn’t do anything wrong? They’re only lending credibility to Dorners by acting this inept, not that he went about things the right way.

    “…not the make, model or color…”
    Hmm…I now find that the word “stumblefuck” surfaces from the recesses of my mind. These cops clearly have zero leadership, at least none in the sense that I understand the word.

    Looks like they’re on “paid administrative leave” for their actions.
    Where I come from, we call that a vacation.
