The LAPD response reaction to Dorner…

Details emerged Sunday about a second incidence of police injuring an innocent person driving a pickup truck in the initial hours of an accused cop-killer’s rampage.

Shaehen told The Times his client was flagged down by officers in a patrol vehicle. After telling the officers he was headed to the beach, the first officer let him drive off.

But a second police car rammed Perdue’s truck, which was a different make and color than Dorner’s gray or blue Nissan, which was later found burning in Big Bear. Perdue is white, Dorner is black, and Perdue is several inches shorter, as well as 100 pounds lighter than the former LAPD cop.

… When the vehicles collided, Perdue’s airbag activated, blocking the view of the police car’s driver—and one of the officers fired three rounds.

…His black 2006 Honda pickup truck was totaled.

“I don’t want to use the word ‘buffoonery,’ but it really is unbridled police lawlessness,” Perdue’s attorney, Robert Sheahen, told The Times. “These people need training and they need restraint.”

Freaked out and childlike behavior from Your Protectors:

In a news conference near the scene of the shooting hours after it took place, Torrance police said neither Perdue nor the officers were injured in the incident.

… David Perdue was not shot but suffered a concussion and a shoulder injury in the crash…

Torrance police apologized to Perdue and offered him a rental car and payment for his medical expenses…

erm, and his totaled truck?

…and the Feeling of being Protected and Served in the Torrance area?

Granted Torrance PD is not LAPD; but who’s the Big Dog in the neighborhood? Officers from the Hollywood division of the LAPD were involved in the shoot-up — in Torrance — of the two women delivering newspapers.

    Another good reason to ban dark window tints.

    Other than that, I could go on for pages on the obvious police mistakes that make Barney Fife look like Einstein.

    It’s Torrance PD that’s trigger happy, as far as I can tell, not LAPD.

    So what’s the over/under on ANY of these cops facing charges?

    One of the officers fired three times on a stationary target and didn’t hit is target once.

    Thank God these clowns are incompetent.

    A case where the shot at survived to enjoy the $$ from what’s left after the lawyers get their take.

    All that education, training,expertise and oversight, yet they still don’t know that “incidence” does not mean “incident”.

    Did you read the “manifesto”? (All good crazies must have a manifesto, it’s like a rule or something)

    Looks to me like it was written by at least 2 people. Takes the crazy train about half-way through, starts spouting government-approved propaganda. Which is weird, yes?
