I have been trying to follow the Dorner saga from the UK and it is quite difficult. Our MSM only had a couple and very hard to find articles about it.
So I had to get my info from here or World news. With all that in mind [meaning that things may have had a better 'presence' on American news], am I
the only one that feels as if I can't get an appropriate emotional link to the whole story?
Let me explain. Whenever something big and horrendous is happening that interests me, I sort of get 'sucked in'. It starts as a newsflash, I read up
on things, meanwhile we get to know the families involved, hear them crying or at least see the frontpages plastered with the victim's photographs.
Not only that, in other cases, everything is being reported. If someone can come up with a picture of the perpetrator or victim from schooldays, it
will go into the media.
This will make things more real and you start to get involved, wondering how the families immediately involved are coping etc. What I am saying is,
you get to know the players, you read more and more details from their lives and you know that they are real people to whom something bad has
However this Dorner story is so 'cold'. It interested me immensely at the start. Ex-copper with gripes on vigilante spree. I wanted to know more.
SHow me pictures of Dorner when he was a baby, show me a family member crying, saying that he was always a good guy for example. [yeah, some
neighbours were interviewed and they seemed to have liked him a lot].
But there was no info [at least not for the non american world], no relatives, friends, children? Did he have a wife, girlfriend? I don't know.
What I am saying here is that Chris Dorner feels to me like a cartoon figure. He doesn't seem real. He was made 'unreal' by the lack of info given
out about him.
Compare this to Breivik, the Norwegian teen killer. I seem to know his whole family, why he did what he did and I know what kind of child he was. The
story gripped me as I saw all the victims and their families. What he did was far worse than Dorner did yet he ended up in court [as it is
Here the victims families can at least get an idea as to why he did what he did, the question on everyone's mind.
Dorner was probably real but to me here in the UK, he feels a very badly made up story. I have never seen any footage of him apart from one photo.
I can read what he apparently wrote' but there is absolutely no evidence that it was him. There is not enough detail about his life apart from that
which is deemed important.
Then he is killed unlawfully by a bunch of criminals in uniform, based on what we were spoon fed by the MSM. Who seem to have taken on the job as
Now Dorner is dead [apparently] but there is no trophy body they can show us. Again, it is as if Dorner never existed. I have not seen him alive, I
have not seen him dead. I have not seen any victims or even their photographs. I have seen nothing that makes him a being that existed, I can't feel
sorry for victims I don't know. I can't feel the pain when nobody seems to be interested on camera.
I am not saying that he is made up, what I am saying is that the whole story has been half-ar$ed, almost like stories in dodgy countries would be
reported. Man who was mad cop killer stopped by hero police, you needn't know any more about this.
Something is missing and I can't put my finger on it. I could not 'link' to this story. Usually I am really interested in things like this and I
still want to know more, but there is no more to know it seems.
Where are the MSM and their nosiness, the money they pay to people who may have remotely known this man?
Usually they come up with personal stories everyday, so they can make you buy their paper or watch their news.
What is missing here? And dare I say, I had a similar feeling with that school shooting recently and the guy in the cinema who shot people.
Compared to other stories, these were too 'cold'. Maybe it is how things are being reported nowadays?
Just to give you an idea of the opposite :
The case of Fred West, daily updates, pictures and people from the past, showing police digging in back garden. The news of more bodies found and the
pictures of the victims [so sad and emotional]. Eventually arrested [not burned deliberately, even though he killed far more than Dorner]. Then a book
and more about his life and his family. I was really 'in there'.
Columbine shooting. Pictures and witness reports. Parents speaking, emotions all around. The perps dead, we got info about their lives, how they were
little once, more pictures, people who knew them. I was right in there.
Back in Germany, a bus being hijacked, a girl gets close to the highjackers, even laughing [ I know because they got filmed]. Pictures of the girl, we
all follow the story and I felt a shock one morning when the headlined screamed: Bus girl shot dead.
I was right in there.
Dorner: I was never 'in there'. Why?
