    I saw the news earlier that an ex LAPD police officer and army reservist was holed up in a cabin having a shootout with police.
    This guy got fired a few years ago and has put his training to bad use, killing a deputy in the shootout.
    I know of one incident in the UK when an police officer shot someone and then himself, but it would seem that a combination of police and military training, the availability of guns, and a cop with a grudge, do not go well together.
    Rip to the deputy

  2. the thing which stands out for me is the cops brassed up 2 chicks in a vehicle which was different to his. thinking it was him.
    nice work.
  3. I think the final total was LAPD brassed up 3 vehicles that were similar(ish) to his.

    WHAT!!!!!!! They shot Jim Morrisson?
  9. They shot a 71 year old woman and her daughter, who were out delivering papers. They apparently mistook the vehicle for Dorner's because they were in a state of heightened alert and the vehicle was behaving strangely (slowing down every few feet so that papers could be delivered).

    The vehicle was a bright blue Toyota, and the one they were looking for was a black Nissan.

    Because the incident took place on a residential street, bullets fired by LAPD went through nearby houses.

    Later, another Police department stopped a black truck that looked a bit like Dorner's (though was again a different make). The driver was a skinny white male. A few moments later, a cruiser rammed him and cops opened fire. Reports seem to suggest that they again thought the vehicle was Dorner's.

    They're incredibly lucky they haven't killed more people than Dorner. It's staggeringly unprofessional.

  13. Perhaps the 'rogue cop' had a point about what a shower the LAPD are. Running around the streets shooting up pickups at random seems to be part of their standard procedures.
