"When Torrance issues this ridiculous statement saying he wasn't injured, all they mean is he wasn't killed," his attorney said, referring to a press release reporting "no visible injuries" to Perdue.
A department spokesman said Saturday that the shooting is still under investigation. In a statement to The Times, the department said: "The circumstances of the incident known to the responding officers would have led a reasonable officer under normal circumstances and these were far from normal circumstances to believe that fellow officers were being shot at and that the vehicle traveling toward them posed a serious risk.
"In the split seconds available to them," the statement continued, "action was appropriate to intervene and stop the actions of the driver of that vehicle."
Just an observation. Let’s review how US troops ended up reacting in Iraq....after a year or two there. They’d readily fire on any suspicious car that they felt was going to make a run at the entry point or if the driver showed any unusual head movements. It’s only taken the LA cops three days to reach this point.
If this guy stays hidden for the next thirty days....I’d take a humble guess of a dozen innocent people either wounded or dead from the LA cops. The city will be facing court action that amounts to half-a-billion....if you ask me. If he stays out for a hundred days....it might even get close to a billion that they have to pay out and settle on. This guy could bankrupt the city of LA....eventually.
The Keystone Cops are shooting first... well... they did ask him questions and then shooting this time.. lol.
This is so ridiculous
Another case of attempted murder by cops
"They don't know where he is, and they're going to be edgy and jumpy," she said. "Don't get in their way. They're in a special state of consciousness right now, and they're not used to being hunted."
Perdue's attorneys said their client was shot at without warning.
"As you know, officers of the Torrance Police Department attempted to kill Mr. Perdue" Thursday, the attorneys wrote in a letter to the agency's chief.
Skinny White guy and his wife mistaken for very large Black guy. Wrong make of PU, Wrong Color. But his car was shot at and rammed. Insane even by CA standards.
But then you remember the idiots in Tucson who shot 30+ bullets into the X-Marine in his home after they kicked in his door. That one has gone silent for quite a while. Legal system is sorting it out. /sarcasm Militarization of the Police is a serious mistake. When you give children toys they are compelled to use them.
One could almost be led to believe there is a substantial cash prize to the cop who kills Dorner.
This is the kind of crap that happens when you give sheep guns and badges. I couldn’t live with myself having even fired at an innocent much less injure or kill. It’s one of the things that drives me to train hours on end and spend thousands of my own money on eqipment and training.
I wonder what he was driving. Was it even close to Dormers?
Apparently, anyone driving a pickup truck is fair game.
Soon asking a friend to “ride shotgun” may take on literal meaning.
Multiply this by millions and you can see what will happen when they start confiscating firearms from people determined not to give them up.
When they start shooting innocents just for refusing to give up their Constitutionally rightfully owned weapons and the people start shooting back there is going to be hell to pay.
Think about how many people you are getting ready to get killed Feinstein you friggin idiot.
So does this mean that the Police and the DA will afford Citizens the same level of scrutiny, should they MISTAKENLY SHOOT THE WRONG PERSON??? Thats what I thought, Arrest and Charge ALL OF THEM for FIRST DEGREE ATTEMPTED MURDER.
(Unless of course LAPD wants us to believe that cops in SoCal are just opening fire at random on innocent civilians. Which could never happen. Could it?)
At this point, his vehicle being burnt and useless, the criteria is "what vehicle is he driving." I'd say any vehicle is now fair game, from the LAPD's perspective.
Simple question, would this excuse keep the DA from charging someone else? Simple answer - you'd be going to prison.
Good grief, these Citizens need to get themselves armed and fast. They are missing an opportunity to prune the LA police of some bad guys.
Couple of things,
I do not think i could do you job without really really going crazy
And are you writing a book about your current experience?
Are you even allowed to?
If he had a dog both he and the dog would be shot dead by the foolish LAPD.
That's a very weak red herring. But it appears that the absence of a "what to do if it's a policeman" chapter means that they decide that any other rules -- know what you're shooting at -- simply don't apply.
