It also could open up the Mental Health floodgate. ( not that it will)
Question is though, how would it be used? (for us or against us?)
If anything it should set a precedent for weeding out unbalanced cops, and it raises all kinds of questions concerning mental health in law
enforcement. Those questions have been there long enough, now it's time for some legitimate answers... not just preliminary batteries and cursory
, this comes down to just being the handiwork of a disturbed individual. By that logic, the crucial element here is mental health, or
rather the lack thereof.
This rampage is what normal people (civilians) feel like doing when they've experienced police corruption, brutality, or injustice that has been
institutionalized by the courts. What other recourse does one have besides outrage? File a complaint and become a target? Play the game of
bureaucratic runaround and legal shenanigans?
The fear the cops have of one of their own running amok... well the public lives with that every day, knowing that some jerk with an overinflated
sense of self-importance can ruin a life (or end it) with the wave of a hand.
Dorner just happened to be the one that drew the shortest straw. How many others are teetering on the edge? How many other LEOs, due to stress,
trauma, professional impropriety or unethical policies, already take out their grievances and frustrations on the public in a subtle way?
Provided this isn't just smoke and mirrors, on the surface it looks kind of like the "if I can't have you no one will" mentality. All or nothing. He
didn't get his way, and like any other psycho with a bully complex, started taking it out on everyone around.
If he knew that the corruption and favoritism was so engrained then why did he report it? If he knew it was that bad, then he knew what would come of
it and how drastically it could escalate. Something that heavy can only be dealt with by walking away, unless you are looking to pick the fight of
If it is a massive psyop then it must be working, because WTF!?
