Ummm...excuse me.....So we throw due process out the window and now high five and roast marshmallows while the LEO's get to play Judge
Dredd and you think this is just great. Hopefully you wont have to eat your words...but I think I'm a little tired of you thinking you stand for some
sort of constitutional rule of law. WTF....why even pretend anymore...especially when we can be so selective in which of the enumerated rights we get
to pick and choose for others simply because we read a story in a paper or watched some footage.
It's not about due process. Dorner made it about more basic issues when he took the lives of innocent people and did so freely, without need or
provocation, then took two more innocent people hostage in the mountains before being chased into the cabin he was killed in.
Very simply put, the cops had a choice. They could storm the cabin and get more cops killed or injured, or they could burn it down and kill him.
Simple choice. Lose small or Lose big? Losing was a given the moment Dorner chose surrender as an option he WOULD NOT take or submit to.
That point made all decisions which followed and they were made by Dorner, not the cops who had to deal with him.
Now, were they more enthusiastic than they should have been? yeah... I still want to know why they were SO hot to kill this guy. Aside from the
obvious fact he'd already killed others and shot as well as shot AT cops like it was a local sport. There has to be more to it.
It doesn't change a thing in the end though.
There, at a distance, was a circle of cops. In the middle, was an Ex-cop trained and well versed
in every tactic the cops could or may use to get him out. He was a man willing and having demonstrated the desire to kill more cops if given the
chance. So what doesn't change, regardless of motives in the bigger picture?
Lose Small ...Or Lose Big.
The LAPD and LA Sheriff's Office chose to Lose Small after Dorner had already killed and tried to kill FAR too many
already. I don't fault them one bit, under those circumstances and am shocked anyone is actually defending a rampaging killer whose ONLY seeming
'good point' is that he wasn't STILL a cop. After all, some defending this guy HATE cops on principle.......but this one is a hero? Yeah... Color
me lost on the logic.
