Lost among all the lionizing of Christopher Dorner as either a modern day Django or Nat Turner by people of the left are two names you might have forgotten:
Monica Quan & Keith Lawrence
While some people are remembering Mr Lawrence fondly:
Keith Lawrence’s words were scrawled out on the white board before the game:
“Don’t take the game for granted. You never know which one will be your last.”
As if the Moorpark College men’s basketball team needed a reminder this week, after Lawrence, who led the Raiders to a Western State Conference title and four postseason victories from 2004 to 2006, was killed last Monday in the parking complex of his Irvine apartment alongside his fiancee Monica Quan.
he was collateral damage as the real target was Ms Quan
As reported last night, the so-called “manifesto” Dorner left behind stated Monica’s father, Randal Quan, who as an LAPD police captain advocated for the triple-murder suspect in disciplinary actions, had supposedly not fought vigorously enough on his behalf. Dorner had a special message for the retired cop directing him to look into the faces of his family members to explain why Monica Quan was taken out.
Read that again for a moment. Ms. Quan’s father advocated FOR Christopher Dorner and because he was not successful, why his daughter HAD to die.
But now our society has reached a point where people who put multiple gunshots into young women get pages on facebook like the Christopher Donner appreciation society.
But they do justify their support:
Nearly 3,000 people like the page “I Support Christopher Jordan Dorner.”
CBS13 posted a simple question: Why? Why support a man wanted for at least three killings and the author of a murderous manifesto promising to target cops?
One sympathizer wrote us, “Because something needs to be done about the long known corruption of not only the LAPD, but several agencies.”
That something of course being gunning down a young woman and her husband to be.
Some may be surprised by this however if you have followed the Daniel Faulkner and Mumia Abu Jamal you would not be.
Just to remind you Mumia Abu Jamal was convicted of shooting officer Daniel Faulkner back in 1982, his case became a cause celeb among the left. His death sentence was delayed and delayed for three decades on appeal until finally the family agreed to the DA reducing the sentence to life without parole. As Mrs. Faulkner said at the time:
My family and I have endured a three-decade ordeal at the hands of Mumia Abu-Jamal, his attorneys and his supporters; who in many cases never even took the time to educate themselves about the case before lending their names, giving their support and advocating for his freedom. All of this has taken an unimaginable physical, emotional and financial toll on each of us
I anticipate two equally unappealing outcomes.
1. Christopher Dorner is dies either by the hand of the police or himself and is permanently lionized by the left as fighting against “The man”
2. Christopher Dorner is taken alive and given the full Mumia treatment while those he has murdered are at best forgotten and at worst considered justifiable targets of his righteous wrath.
I wish we still lived in a society where either of these outcomes would be a shock.
