Fuck LAPD


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dozens of protesters rallied outside Los Angeles police headquarters Saturday in support of Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD officer and suspected killer of four who died after a shootout and fire this week at a mountain cabin following one of the biggest manhunts in recent memory.
Protesters told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/11Ndm6i ) they didn't support Dorner's deadly methods, but objected to police corruption and brutality, and believed Dorner's claims of racism and unfair treatment by the department. Many said they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorner's death and injuries to innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him.
Michael Nam, 30, who held a sign with a flaming tombstone and the inscription "RIP Habeas Corpus," said it was "pretty obvious" police had no intention of bringing Dorner in alive.
"They were the judge, the jury and the executioner," Nam said. "As an American citizen, you have the right to a trial and due process by law."

You gotta wonder how LAPD brass felt when they came to work and saw how many citizens hate them. And before anybody gives me any shit, I heard the one where the police were talking 'burn the place down like we talked about before'.
He also wasn't a danger to the general public evidenced by the fact that he didn't kill the guy that he stole the car from or the fact that he didn't kill the residents of the cabin he was killed in. He had an agenda and they were the only ones in any kind of danger. LAPD took the law into their own hands and it's pretty fucking evident that LAPD had already sentenced him to death by fire or gunshot.
"But wait, there was proof he was guilty and he admitted doing it" you say. So what, I've admitted to carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. Does that give me a death sentence too? 
"But that's different" you say. How is it different? Where's the line drawn? Who drew that line? Who gave them the authority to draw that line?
The fact of the matter is LAPD has been out of control for a long, long time and it's not just been isolated incidents. You don't believe me? Google LAPD Jump Out Boys to start.
