Support for Dorner is Troubling

very true, and further, right-wing murders are UTTERLY ignored. For example, I'd be willing to bet that the ambush murder of two sheriff's deputies in Louisiana, by an anti-government group last summer is news to the majority of people in this thread. What is the sum total of cable news coverage of those murders? My guess: zero. What are their names? No one knows. And in those cases there is not a mental health issue as there is in Dorner's case.

dyadd............2 officers were killed and 2 others were wounded. I'd say that that's a fairly unique situation. And, the more I think about it, I might have heard some small reference to it at the time. But the point is that the killers were some type of militia gorup.....so, in Prager's mind, this story should have been a very MAJOR, top of the page story in terms of the "liberal media" across the country. Instead it was barely a blip

Google "louisiana sheriffs ambushed" - I get 354,000 hits.

Was widely reported for a story where the only casualties were in law enforcement.

Police are killed all the time - it is a common local news item.

Monica Quan, and Keith Lawrence were not police officers.

Enrique...good stuff. Thanks for providing that. Your point is spot on.............THIS is exactly the type of story, that, in Prager's twisted mind, the "liberal media" would have made a HUGE deal about. The truth, however, is that it was mostly ignored by the media.

local news only. Why , I'm not sure, since the suspect is on the terrorism watch list, which is of national interest.

Look at this local news story. If Prager's whining was justified, this stuff would be all over MSNBC. But as far as I can tell, this angle was never mentioned on cable news.

Enrique............I have to admit that I don't recall that story at all.
Just when you thought you've seen it all with the Sandy Hook murders of a classroom full of children, America experiences another new low: A man named Christopher Dorner murders (as of this writing) three innocent people in order to air personal grievances. And his grievances are given serious attention by the national media, not to mention left-wing websites.

To better understand this, imagine the outcry if, let us say, a white student who was certain that he was denied admission to a prestigious university because of affirmative action, murdered a university official and the daughter of the dean of admissions and...
