Here in Los Angeles, it's apparently okay to open fire on a truck that LOOKS LIKE the truck of an alleged cop killer.
From the L.A. Times article:
Manhunt: Newspaper carrier, 71, in ICU after being shot by police
A 71-year-old woman delivering newspapers with her daughter remained in intensive care Thursday night after she was shot twice in the back by Los Angeles police detectives during a massive manhunt for a fugitive ex-LAPD officer, according to the womens' attorney.
Emma Hernandez was delivering the Los Angeles Times with her daughter, Margie Carranza, 47, in Torrance early Thursday when police officers apparently mistook their pickup for that of Christopher Jordan Dorner, the 33-year-old fugitive suspected of killing three people and injuring two others.
Hernandez was in stable condition late Thursday.
The officers riddled the women's blue pickup with bullets in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue. Carranza was also hit, according to attorney Glen T. Jonas, and received stitches to a finger.
How the fuck does this happen? Why are we not protesting in the streets? What if you had a blue truck and were in the wrong place at the wrong time? Jesus fucking Christ, LAPD. This guy's manifesto accuses you of covering up truths, racism, and general corruption. Maybe the wrong message to send back is that YOU WILL FUCKING SHOOT ANYONE WHO DRIVES A SIMILAR VEHICLE, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
I support law enforcement. I have family in law enforcement. But for fuck's sake, their job is to serve and protect not SHOOT PEOPLE JUST IN CASE.
Please be outraged by this.
