Nice job, LAPD rapid and promiscuous FAIL!
nquiring minds would certainly like to see the video from the squad car involved where two LA Police officers rapidly and promiscuously opened fire on a pickup truck, thinking they had the far left-wing murderer Christopher Dorner in their sights.
If you or I had opened fire on a pickup truck whose occupants werent trying to run us over or shooting at us, wed be in jail for a long time to come.
While police have a little additional leeway in using deadly force, it would seem this was a grossly inappropriate use of force and not only should the offending officers be charged criminally, but the department owes the victims a new pickup truck and probably a hefty check on top of that for pain and suffering. Ditto for the homeowners of the freshly perforated home downrange.
In addition, check out that marksmanship or lack thereof.

Of course it looks like they have to have those 30 round mags as they are lousy shots (especially compared to the shooter guy they fired).

in before the “You hate cops if you critisize this” crowd.
I will now add Los Angeles along with New York City to the list of cities I will not be going to. Chicago, New Orleans and East Saint Louis because of the gang wars and New York and Los Angeles because of the ineptitude of the POlice Depts.cop wars.
they are trying to execute him, taking him in is NOT an option
They respect us almost as much as they do dogs now.
If six cops can't kill two defenseless old ladies who are delivering newspapers with 50 shots, what chance does a homeowner have against a determined attacker/home invader if the homeowner is only allowed 5 rounds in his magazine?
“Ditto for the homeowners of the freshly perforated home downrange. “
Think about how you’d feel if your kid got killed as he or she slept in their bed. I’d want answers and justice. No kidding.
Was this Bonny and Clyde? GOOD GRIEF ! ! !
Gross inept negligence.
Um, Mr. Dorner owns a Nissan Titan, not a Toyota Tacoma!
"Now, as you look at the sequence of where the bodies were, I would think Pilon was first [to die], McVean was the second and Mason lived the longest."
Looks like they eventually ID'd and found them, but didn't get them.
The upside is the LA Times wasn’t delivered to a hundred homes that morning.
Sounds like the cops were relatively stationary and under no immediate pressure.
Note to self: get bullet resistant rear window and armor for rear cab sheet metal for p/u .
You are more generous than I would be. Answers and justice would only begin with the officers' incarceration. There would also ensue civil judgements for all involved. Personal justice would be a different, but necessary, discussion.

...and it’s gray, not blue. He also isn’t two Hispanic women, but one black male.
Doesn’t look like they spent a lot of time at the range. Question is: two officers, two M4 patrol rifles, where did the other 11 rounds go? Glad I wasn’t in that neighborhood at the time.
So far, three totally innocent people in two different pickup trucks have been shot up.
Neither pickup matched the description of the perp's, which was found burned out in a remote area.
They HAVE to execute him becauase they, Democrats, cannot afford to have a black cop who, by his own manuscripts, is a dyed-in-the-wool racist, a hardened revolutionary liberal, and the epitome of the Democrat warrior on trial and TALKING throughout for all to see/hear. The MSM could not ignore this.
Criminal. But soon to be so commonplace as to not merit mention in the news.

The women were victims of ‘a tragic misinterpretation’ by officers working under ‘incredible tension,’ LAPD Chief Charlie Beck says.

Who is he racist against?
Your statement speaks volumes.
At least those guys usually hit what they shot at.

This is why it sets my teeth on edge when the jackboot-lickers chime in and say there's just "a few bad apples" among police.
If they were "bad apples," instead of ordinary representatives of typical police culture and training in these areas, they'd be removed from the bushel instead of defended, apologized for, given paid leave and a mild reprimand if they're unlucky, and promoted.
LA mayor has implemented additional marksmanship training for all LA officers as of Friday:

I thought jerry “fat boy” nadler said we should only “need” one or two shots. Maybe use him as a shield? In addition, are all pickup trucks now targets or just black and blue. Mine’s gray but we may just take the white sedan out if we go anywhere. At this point, does anybody have any idea where this guy is? LEO says he’s probably still in the Big Bear area but do they really have a clue? Not really. The old burning truck decoy trick. Hope he’s not in the Reno area.
I wouldn’t classify that Honda POS as a truck!
I’d settle for justice,right there-right then.
Hey give the LAPD a break, they probably thought that the 71 year old lady they shot in the back was going to jump out of the truck and kick both their asses. They feared for their lives!
Those 6 guys would take out half of the LAPD before they were stopped.
Similar in that they had an engine under the hood, a cab with a driver, and a box on the back.
I notice they Officer in the middle is wearing spurs.
That is the oddest shade of gray I’ve ever seen!
Some butch cop who's actions he didn't support.
Now the LAPD has a real problem on their hands. There should be all sorts of officers fired over firing on random citizens. But some of those who should be fired might take offense and join in with Dorner. So they'll likely just be given counseling for PTSD.
Seriously, there needs to be some thought given to the idea of an assault truck ban, with eventual confiscation being a possibility.
Both trucks are currently harboring assault ammunition rounds. If these trucks are not licensed for the transport of assault ammunition, then they need to be permanently removed from the roadways.
The Hughmanitee of this all...
The women were in possession of ‘assault’ papers.

“We do not know how many rounds missed the truck.”
In follow up news reports there were numerous bullet holes in buildings and cars including shattered glass in the area.
