LAPD is on alert that rampaging ex-cop Christopher Dorner may target the police detail assigned to the Grammys at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday night New York Daily News, by Erik Ortiz & Stephen Rex Brown
On-edge LAPD officers hunting for alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner are concerned the vengeful madman may strike again at the Grammys. A passage in Dorner’s rambling manifesto has raised alarm among lawmen that the irate ex-cop could target the large police detail that will be deployed to safeguard the star-studded awards show Sunday night in Los Angeles, said CBS’ John Miller, a former LAPD bureau chief. “I assure you that Incident Command Posts will be target-rich environments,” Dorner, 33, wrote, needling his adversaries by using police jargon for mobile headquarters that are established at special events. The police “have an anxiety
It will be tough to collect the bounty with the restrictive gun laws in California. If citizens could legally carry concealed, then Dorner´s life would be a lot more complicated. Plus armed citizens are less likely to panic and shoot innocents like the LAPD did.
Tell that to the two Hispanic female newspaper carriers who were shot by the LAPD in their wild hunt for Dorner. Is Dorner wrong? Absolutely. Is the LAPD handling this in a responsible fashion? Nope. Somehow I don´t think they would handle things the same way if the public were in the cross-hairs. Their handling comes down to the issue that he is targeting police, and he knows their tactics.
It is a micricosmic glimpse into what "terrorism" has done to our country. The sheer panic and overpowering legislation, loss of rights, all assembled in a tiny package, neatly laid out in LA.
Now, they are bringing out the drones, because we are now guilty until proven innocent in New Amerika. We will get to witness the first drobe execution on our soil of an alleged terrorist who sent a fax pleading he was on vacation when he found out about the manhunt for him.
Yet, the corrupt staterun media, which you are all aware of, continues to run this "manifesto", which everyone buys as gospel?
Sit back and watch as more of your rights erode, buy into this fairy tale, don´t question the story full of holes, because you may just find your government is lyibg to you.
And certainly, don´t ask for the security camera video where the cops daughter was shot. Just let the drones take care of it, and watch the Grammy´s. It´s all good.
If I and my entire family were gunned down in the street, I guarantee that if the gunner didn´t stand there and wait for the cops, they´d never catch him. They´d write it up and it would go into the dead letter file or whatever. But when they become the target or the victim they will move heaven, earth, and hell to catch the bad guy. Gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling. How ´bout you?????
More than likely Dorner has killed himself in the woods probably not far from his burnt truck. However, innocent citizens are in greater danger from trigger fingers on the police force gunning for Dorner as they shoot any person that moves. Good thing the cops are such poor shots. That is the only reason they haven´t killed innocent people yet. But if they keep shooting at people, they will eventually kill someone but it won´t be Dorner. Now with a million dollar bounty on his head, the cops will be shooting at even more innocent people.
It´s not just that the cops are being stupid, but narcissistic. They are purposefully putting the people at the Grammy´s at risk by being there, because they want to "protect" them? They´re using people at the Grammy´s as human shields so they can show how brave they are.
Why do the celebs need armed guards to begin with, and especially ones that are targets themselves and are trigger-happy? Having said that, I suspect that Dorner is a better shot and would be able to carry out his mission without endangering any of the wierdos he idolizes. If I were a celeb at the Grammy´s, I´d stay far, far away from anyone in a uniform.
I think he killed himself in the woods and they´ll find his body when they stop looking over their shoulders.
One thing this whole thing has accomplished is to show how ugly our society is. This murderer has fans on the internet.
And then there are the wonderful cops. If Dorner was telling the truth about abuse and got fired for it (completely plausible) then it deserves a real investigation. And the cops who shot at people with no warning, no question, just panicked firing need to be kicked off the force, losing all their benefits in the process.
When I was in high school, I joined the ROTC initially because I was attracted to the uniforms. I figured they would provide an opportunity to escape the constant berating by fellow students owing to my outdated clothing. I was fascinated with the guns and became an excellent marksman, winning several marksmanship awards. I also led a drill team, which was very advanced with the art of disassembling and reassembling military rifles in record time. I advanced through the ranks, eventually becoming the city’s ROTC executive officer and was offered a scholarship to West Point. I gained great respect for
SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -Officials at Shaw Air Force Base are trying to determine what to do about a holiday display after a Nativity scene was taken down last week. Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Keavy Rake said Tuesday a Nativity display was set up Friday by a group of volunteers from the base chapel at a small lake on the installation. The site was near where a tree lighting ceremony was scheduled Friday evening. Rake says the Military Religious Freedom Foundation lodged a complaint about the display through the Air Force in Washington. Paul Loebe, spokesman for the foundation, said
Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Senate will not extend current farm law if Congress can´t agree on a new farm bill before adjourning next week. House leaders have reserved space on their agenda this week for extending the current law until the end of January. Lawmakers fear that milk prices might rise sharply if dairy subsidies expire Jan. 1. The House and Senate have passed separate versions, but with widespread differences over crop subsidies and how much to cut food stamps. House Speaker John Boehner said last week that the House should extend the current law while negotiators seek
WASHINGTON — Majority Democrats in the Senate won approval Tuesday for one of President Barack Obama´s key judicial nominees, the first of his picks to win confirmation since they weakened the chamber´s filibuster rules. Senators voted 56-38 to approve Washington lawyer Patricia Millett to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation´s second most powerful court. Both sides saw Millett´s appointment as pivotal. It will give Democratic-appointed judges a 5-4 majority over those chosen by Republican presidents for that court, which rules on the legality of White House actions and federal agency regulations. Obama praised
In response to Dylan Byers: MSNBC Is Everything the Left Accuses Fox News of Being: The Byers criticism of MSNBC was interesting and significant because it exists at all, but he´s still praising them with faint damn. He goes out of his way to drag Fox down to their level over and over again; he´s willing to concede that MSNBC might be as bad as Fox, when to any objective observer, there is simply no comparison. MSNBC is a gutter-dwelling performance-art interpretation of a shrieking-loon far left website, not a news channel with a high percentage of left-leaning opinion.
Environmental Protection Agency employees received light punishments for “employee integrity” violations and avoided prosecution when crimes allegedly occurred, according to the agency’s inspector general. The IG revealed a list of employee integrity violations that included assault, illegal possession of a weapon, and efforts to solicit improper personal payments from agency contractors, among other violations. Many received light punishments for the offenses, including ethics counseling, short leaves of absence, and informal discussions with supervisors. One employee was sentenced to 18 months of probation for attempting to carry a knife, stashed in one of his shoes, onto a plane. Despite the criminal prosecution, the
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is spending an additional $55 million to “bolster” the healthcare workforce, as Obamacare contributes to shortages in the industry. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced last week that her agency will provide over 270 grants “from diversity to dentistry” to address worker shortages in the healthcare industry. The funding includes $45.4 million to support the nursing workforce, $5.2 million of which will go towards “improving nursing diversity.” The grants also provide $2.4 million for training of doctoral-level psychologists to “address the behavioral health needs of vulnerable and underserved populations,” and $3 million to support
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
