Can not believe a segment of our population was actually cheering on this killer.

    I think that in times of bad economy, people want to blame somebody in authority. Its the banks, its the cops, its whomever you want to blame. Back in the past, when times are difficult, people glorified Jesse and Frank James. Made them out to be some sort of Robin Hood because they robbed banks (the bad guys). People even hid them out in the homes and barns, etc. It was “us against them”, which we have a lot of now. “We are the good guys and THEY are the bad guys.” so the more you can dredge up to hold against that person, the more the people on YOUR side will believe.

    I guess, as with any major city Los Angeles PD has had some racial problems. They are in the process of fixing it all, but if you have people believing that if LAPD is after Doerner, then he obviously must be” on OUR side.” Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Bonnie and Clyde, etc. It seems to be more obvious during troubled times.

    I think a segment of the population was not cheering him on but empathizing with him. Those who live in Los Angeles know all about the racist and violent LAPD and reading the manifesto just conjured up images of all the negative things they did in the past. I wasn’t cheering him on but I certainly wasn’t cheering for the LAPD, either.

      I really have a personal conflict with this, maybe he was a bad cop, but what if he was trying to right a wrong and there were some bad cops with more authority? He did say he wanted to clear his name. Maybe he snapped. It doesn’t make murdering right or the answer to such problems. It is so different in a big city, there is federal law, there is county law, there is city law and then there is inside influence. None of us were there, to really know what was really happening and the news media has in the past not always been 100 percent factual. All we can do is to remember we are not perfect and we should always consider that so many families’ including his own was affected by this situation. What a waste, if only things could have been different.

    Dorner was a coward. Whatever his “problem” was, mass murder was not the answer. No one in their right mind should be able to fully empathize with what he did.

    I can’t imagine anyone cheering on a murderer. LAPD or not. I mean they may have a bad rap but why let a few bad apples spoil the whole batch?
    I grew up as a daughter of a police officer, I work closely with a couple in town. These men are normal every day people with families, homes and friends. The difference between their jobs and the job of a banker or a factory worker is that police work can be extremely dangerous. Realize LA has a skyrocketed crime and drug rate, stereotyping probably came way too easy for a couple, but to blame the whole department and cheer on the deaths of innocent cops is extremely sick and disgusting.
    These men and women are parents, children, and loved ones of people!
