Authorities in Los Angeles were on a massive manhunt for 33 year old Christopher Jordan Dorner, a former LA Police Department officer who is believed to have threatened "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against police in an online manifesto, and was suspected of shooting three police officers, one of whom died. During the manhunt, LA police shot two women who were simply delivering newspapers.
The blue pickup truck, used by the women, was riddled with bullet holes. One of the women was shot in the hand, while the other was shot in the back, according to Jesse Escochea, who captured video of the treatment of the victims.
Dorner also is suspected of killing a couple in Orange County earlier this week.
Sources said the Los Angeles police detectives involved in the Torrance shooting were on protective detail for a police official named in the suspect's supposed manifesto, which was posted on what authorities believe is his Facebook page.
A second shooting, involving Torrance police officers, occurred about 5:45 a.m. at Flagler Lane and Beryl Street in Torrance. No injuries were reported in that incident.
Chase said that in both instances police came across vehicles they thought were similar to the one Dorner is believed to be driving. Neither vehicle was Dorner's.
"Now it appears neither of them are directly related," Chase said. "In both of them, officers believed they were at the time."
It appears that LA police are shooting first then if people are alive they ask questions. While I understand that several shootings of officers have taken place, doesn't this bother anyone that what we are hearing today is calls for more control of guns by the government and removing them from the hands of citizens to only leave them in the hands of police officers like this?
Where are the calls for those who engaged in these shootings to be held to the same standard any of us are? I'm sure they will get paid administrative leave, while their victims pay for their own medical attention and then the city's taxpayers will foot any legal bills that will result, instead of the men who actually did the shooting.
As for Dorner, he published an online manifesto, in which he specifically named the father of Monica Quan, the Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach who was found dead Sunday, along with her fiance, Keith Lawrence.
Randy Quan, a retired LAPD captain, was involved in the review process that led to Dorner's dismissal. Dorner was fired in 2009 for allegedly making false statements about his training officer and complained that Quan and others did not give him a fair representation at his review hearing.
“The violence of action will be high .... I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty," Dorner wrote.
Not only has there been law enforcement officers shot and killed, but it appears that police officers are having issues in dealing with the public as a result of what has taken place. Hence these two women that were shot and the other incident in which no one was harmed.
