It is amazing to read the racial component in the celebration of Dorner by the people doing so.
I’ve often said I thought it was a national disgrace that so much violence takes place in urban areas and cities don’t put the same effort to stop it.
After reading these comments and more importantly the twitter feeds of the people making them I find it amazing that any police officer would consider risking their lives for any of these people.
As I’m reading this I understand the cabin Dorner is in is now afire and the Swat team is inside. We don’t know if he has escaped, if he has burned or what the situation is. I’m hoping the hostages are OK.
This is not something to celebrate no matter what the result. Innocent people are dead and that doesn’t even cover the costs and the fear generated.
I would like to ask one question to those cheering Dorner murders on racial and or racial grievance grounds:
How does your justification of murder based on Dorner’s grievances, real or imagined, differ from the Klan’s justification of murder based on racial grievances real or imagined.
If you can’t see that and understand that, then King died for nothing.
Update: Barbarism is not acceptable and must be called out even if advanced by friends
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.
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.
