Dorner myst be brought to justice (if he already hasn't). That being said, his attempte to expose abuses in the LAPD (and just about every other "law enforcement agency" has merit. Look at the trigger-happy police that shot individuals in a truck "just because" it "looked" like the suspect's truck. Does anyone here think that police would go through the heave-handed tactics if an ordinary citizen's life were threatened? I think not. Let's face it. The Supreme court ruled that individual citizens are not entitled to police "protection". Their heavy-handed tactics in this case PROVES that they are only out to protect themselves. The "thin blue line" needs oversight badly. The days when everyone knew the officers on the beat is over.

The militarization and federalization of police forces in this country has done more to damage the relationship that cops (used to) have with civilians than any other aspect of law enforcement practices. Of course, "asset forfeiture" and the so-called "drug war" has had an extremely corrosive effect on law enforcement / civilian relations.

Is there any line that can't be crossed in the name of black solidarity?

A new low (if that's possible):
