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.
