On his Facebook page pictures there’s a screenshot of his degrees and certificates. He was a Naval Intelligence reserve officer, graduated in 2006.
We got a lot of Navy reservists through as augments to existing intelligence programs when I was in Iraq and Afghanistan. I was in SIGINT at the time and had a never ending stream of Naval reservists pass through. (I don’t know him, but I had to give him a good long look to be sure.)
There’s a lot of programs he could have been attached to as a reservist. DOCEX, MEDEX, CELLEX, etc, or analysis shops, fusion cells or ground operations. He referenced some different targeting methods in his full manifesto that would be ineffective against him (IMINT, OSINT, HUMINT, etc) and has a working command of officer/intel lingo.
He’s not a trigger puller. Shoots Marskman with a rifle, Expert with pistol. Uh huh. That’s fine for a weekend warrior desk jockey, but he’s no door kicker. At least, not then. He seems to be giving the LAPD a run for their money.
Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit = fancy name for a radar or sonar operator
Sounds like he was recycled, then ultimately washed out of flight school.
Bingo. If he spent 23 months as a naval flight student before being washed out, it is not idle to speculate that he survived a number of speedy boards [student pilot disposition boards] before the last one. If true, this is most unusual. Most all of the guys I knew who were sent off to see the Admiral were never seen again. The first speedy board was almost always terminal. This was the case at Saufley, Whiting and Kingsville. The one or two folks who survived their first speedy board were viewed as having some kind of a wire - a family connection in most cases. Again, 23 months in the program is a red flag.
From what I hear this guy Dorner is only a little more messed-up than the rest of the LAPD. They sound like real a-holes and dangerous ones too. Really needs to be cleaned-up.
“Thats nice. When will we see John Kerrys DD-214?
Hell. How about Obama’s birth certificate? College transcripts? Al Qaeda membership form?
It would be interesting to hear if what he wrote was true.
The last part is all over the map ramblings and general leftist insanity.
No way this guy gets taken alive.
What the hell is it with the Navy pukes??
Hanoi John Kerry.
See a pattern here?
crazy diaper-wearing astronaut chick
The good conduct is for enlisted folks, not officers. I guess they're expected to behave without getting awarded for it.
Funny, I don’t know anyone in LA who dislikes the LAPD. And I was born here 64 years ago.
Don’t judge everyone in the Navy by those five a**holes. Hell, even in service, all but one of them served honorably and just had problems after they left service.
Well, a little more than just that:
A Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit (MIUWU) is a component of the United States Navy's Force Protection Package tasked with providing seaward security to joint logistics over-the-shore operations from either a port or harbor complex or unimproved beach sites. The mobile inshore undersea warfare unit is equipped with mobile radar, sonar, and communications equipment located within mobile elements, such as a tent, specially modified HMMWV, or truck-mountable container.

With the exception of Ventura, they were all Zeros (Officers). Ventura was Enlisted, if I recall correctly. He passed the mental exam -at least when he first started out.
As far as getting a commission in the Nav, you gotta be all kinds of roomtemp-level IQ to get booted if you are one of the Mandated Category, as I can attest to (having dealt with quite a few over the years).
Where’s Jack Reacher when you need him?
Believe me, there is nothing specops about Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Units. They basically set up a com/radar unit on a beach head and monitor seagoing traffic and possibly look for subs using airborne assets and sonar bouys. The members are normal everyday Navy personnel. If I’m not mistaken, they are all reserve units. I don’t think any of them are active duty (although they may have active duty staff assigned).
Why did they release this? Is this common in other cases where vets are accused of crimes?
At the risk of getting in trouble with the mods, FU.
I, my Father, Stepfather, eldest Brother, Sister, Brother in Law and MANY great friends and Shipmates served honorably in the Unites States Navy. You can find plenty of shitbirds in every branch.
I cooked the wedding dinner for a PO that eventually became a Chief, and then an Officer. He's a great friend.
Of course, my elder went Navy, and my younger went Army. Go figure.
I wouldn’t want that SOB after me. Especially if I was driving around in a marked car.
He’s a nut, but he can shoot and has seen some training. But now he has a bunch of better armed cats on his tail, not gonna end well for that Navy man.
