    Victims In Attempted Murder by LAPD Get $4.2 Million

    Women Shot by LAPD During Dorner Manhunt Get Hefty Payout

    By Andrew Blankstein, Kate Mather and Kurt Streeter
    April 23, 2013, 7:33 p.m.

    The mother and daughter newspaper carriers injured when police mistakenly fired on them during the manhunt for ex-cop Christopher Dorner would receive $4.2 million under a settlement announced by city officials.
    Not enough as far as I'm concerned, but for the speed at which they arrived at settlement, and considering that the mother is 71 years old and would really be gambling on ever seeing a penny in this life if she pursued it further in court, it is a better resolution than I ever expected LAPD to agree to without being forced into it. But.....

    The LAPD has from the beginning described the incident as a tragic mistake by officers. Chief Charlie Beck met with the women a few days after the shooting to personally apologize and launched an investigation into the officers’ conducts, which is still ongoing. As of Tuesday, the eight officers involved remain off patrol duties.


    There is not a single word in the piece that alludes to the possibility of criminal charges being brought against any of those eight trigger-happy fools. Remember, Dorner was said to be in a gray Nissan Titan, while these women were in a bright blue Toyota Tundra. There were no orders for them to stop, no warnings of any kind, they were throwing papers and eight LEOs just opened fire on them from the rear. Y'all have seen the pictures. The truck was riddled with bullet holes, as were the trees, roofs, exterior walls and some furniture inside the houses on the block. It is a freakin' miracle that no one died at the hands of these crazed maniacs, but so far, they've not even been so much as suspended, they've just been taken off the streets. And from the sound of it, they'll be back on the streets as soon as they finish sweeping the other free-fire attack on the Surfer-Boy in the black Honda pickup under the rug:

    “Hopefully this will put an end to the Dorner saga once and for all,” Trutanich said.

    There ya go. That's what passes for "justice" in the City of Angels. Anyone want to take a bet that those eight cops will be back to "protecting and serving" before the year is out?

    So now we're done with coast-to-coast tests of how The People will react to violently-imposed tyranny on the streets. The plain fact is, they didn't react at all, except to submit to illegal searches, allow their communities to be turned into Soviet-style check points where Officer Friendly looks more like an SS Storm-Trooper and instead of greeting those he's "protecting" with, "How may I serve you today," it's, "Show me your papers."

    As of earlier this evening there were still people on this 2nd Amendment-oriented website who defend such thuggish tyranny. I'm sure one or two of them will be here to rag on me in 5...4...3...2...

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

  3. I like it, they should man up to their fault but only because it was in the news, they know and all of U.S. know. Now if the media hadn't put it on the news, well it would being a different situation.

    To the cops who did the shooting, the public are mere reactive targets.

    If they're not criminally prosecuted, it amounts to a declaration that the LAPD has the power of summary execution.

    Never-the-less.... it's still not a Nissan Titan.
    You can have good intentions and not be right.

    And are these trigger happy, but fortunately poor shot cops still prowling the streets armed and dangerous to the citizens of LA?

    According to the linked story they are all on desk duty. If they even got suspended for a day, you couldn't know it from reading about the settlement, but it does mention that all eight(!!!!) who opened fire are currently on desk duty and the investigation is continuing.

    You have to wonder what it is they're "investigating", that they were in fact not actually there, but were being impersonated by shape shifting cyborgs from an alternate universe? Have they brought Walter Bishop in to consult?

    I think the only thing they're "investigating" is how to let the cops who almost killed three innocent people skate...

    I don't think there's even that much substance to their "investigation." Like the article says, “Hopefully this will put an end to the Dorner saga once and for all,” Trutanich said.

    All the Angelinos who might be predisposed to make a teensy-weensy bit of noise about the completely illegal shootings, have been bought off with $4.2 million of their own tax dollars and a heapin' helpin' of disingenuous good intentions. In fact, before the (almost late) Momma Paper-Thrower gets all her stitches taken out, her collapsed lung gets re-inflated and she starts treatment for her well-earned PTSD, there will be Angelinos screamin' for the tax-man to steal some of that money back as no one should get rich just because of a mistake.....by eight freakin' cops at the same time! Such is the State of Confusion.
