LAPD: Kill at Will

31 posts in this topic

Agreed.

As much as the media generally likes to get at corrupt police, it seems like he could have made a killing by appearing on 60 mins or something like that. Of course, they are reviewing the case again now.

Let's just say for a moment this guy is telling the truth. If he had any damning evidence that the LAPD should fear, why hasn't he made it public in the four plus years since he was terminated from the department? There are plenty of private citizens, public officials, news agencies and a vast numbers of other organizations that would love to be credited with helping to expose corruption in the LAPD. Anyone actually committed to truth and justice would never consider killing innocent civilians to make a point. In his warped mind, he believes he has damning evidence, trust me he doesn't. He is a certifiable wackadoodle. These are REAL LIVES he is taking. He should not be revered, he should be reviled.

I'd have to agree.

Read his "manifesto". The guy comes across as a complete narcissist, and definitely several cards short of a full deck. Everything that ever happened to him is everybody's fault but his own, and he portrays himself in this story as if he were .the most important man in the world

(the section where he details how he will make "high profile targets" of blacks, hispanics, asians and lesbians on the force who have all - in his mind - contributed to the racism that was going on is particularly telling)

He's had the chance to appeal through different avenues, and so far nobody has found him credible. The fact that he actually seems to believe he can gain credibility and "reset the moral compass" by murdering innocent people pretty much tells me all I need to know about him.

Are there bad things happening in the LAPD? Probably, but this guy's no crusader and certainly no hero. If anything, I'd call him a serial killer, and arguably the most dangerous one in decades. I suspect in the end, if it comes down to it, he'll kill himself rather than be captured (of course the tinfoil hat club won't believe it).

Bottom Line: The guy considers the killing of innocent people acceptable and "necessary" as long as it advances his agenda. That's a sign of someone whose goal is revenge, not justice.

I don't know if you're being sarcastic Nanuq, but I respect you man... That being said, I hope you don't really buy that scenario over an actual "conspiracy" theory in this case. The heavily edited manifesto is a prime example that there is something bigger behind all this.

And we're talking about the LAPD. LOL... Not very credible and not an organization I would hold in high regard with their history of cover-ups and corruption. They have run rampant with abuse of power for decades.

None of that justifies what this guy is doing, but, it's clear the story is bigger than "crazy MFer snaps."

Tell me that there is corruption in the one of the largest police forces in the USA, and I'll respond, "What else is new?" Tell me the leadership of the LAPD is corrupt to the core and I won't bat an eyelash. Tell me an ex cop and military officer that believes deeply in truth and justice is killing innocent people because it is the only way to uncover corruption and I'll throw the BS flag every time.

this isn't the only way to uncover corruption.

It isn't any way to uncover corruption.

I don't give a rat's ass if he has the full story behind the Kennedy assassination. Killing innocent people puts him in the same category as the Unabomber, Timothy McVeigh or any of the other wackos with "a cause".

im not condoning this at all. use some logic here guys. he may know a ton, he may not. we don't really know at this point.

never in a million years would i stand behind somebody like this to justify a sliver of what they are doing. never.

Thanks for clarifying. Didn't seem like a view you'd take, but the prior post made me wonder.

From what I read in his manifesto, I have a feeling a lot of "what he knows" happened only in his head.
