Dorner is just waiting for the next target of opportunity, probably not done killing yet. Cops are on a wild goose chase because of imagined or false leads everywhere.

But suicide would seem out of the question.

Or, when pigs fly, one supposes. Say, how do you express outrage over things that haven't happened?

I wasn't referring to Vietnam, dear, but no matter. If Vietnam, however, was not "illegal" - how bout that Gulf of Tonkin incident?- then, obviously, nothing is illegal. Therefore, a soldier DOES NOT have the right to disobey an illegal order because there's no such thing. Your words, not mine.
Orders to kill prisoners and civilians are illegal and soldiers have been prosecuted for following such orders.

An order to fire on American civilians would be illegal.

oh yes. the right wing 'worry about what might happen' syndrome.

get back to me when it happens. or rather....never.

if it didn't work during the election cycle....why would anyone pay attention now?

i can see why the right is so disheartened. even on the rare occasion when they tell the truth no one listens anymore.

Hahahahahahahahahahaha, yes, I'm sure they have. Now, the reciprocal questions: how many politicians and military officers have been prosecuted for issuing such orders. Doesn't the buck stop there, chimaco? I thought the buck stopped there? Are you tellin' me that's just an empty slogan??? How about Abu Ghraib? Prosecuted by whom? Who prosecuted those bad ol' sojurs fo' they evil doin'? How many officers have been prosecuted let alone convicted fo' they misdeeds? Any? there wouldn't be a military if anyone ever dispensed justice so, instead, we have another case of the foxes guardin' the foxes. "No, your honor, I did not actually SEE the defendant with feathers stickin' out of his mouth."

I got two words fo' you, pussy: Military Tribunals. Now go suck my dick and think about the nonsense you spew.

Ghost here again.

Did they catch thet Democrat COP who is killing people with GUNS? I hear he left a manifesto priasing Obama and loons like Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams.

Us Democrats are on a roll with all of us going crazy and killing people and children with "assault" weapons.

The cewl part is the liberal media supresses the news that liberals are killing people while liberals use this to implement gun control.

What a racket!

I'm so proud!

US Violating Human Rights of Children, Says UN Committee
The Obama Administration recently underwent its first U.N. treaty body review, and the resulting concluding observations made public yesterday should be a cause for alarm. The observations, issued by independent U.N. experts tasked with monitoring compliance with the international treaty on the rights of children in armed conflict (formally known as the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the involvement of children in armed conflict or “OPAC”), paint a dark picture of the treatment of juveniles by the U.S. military in Afghanistan: one where hundreds of children have been killed in attacks and air strikes by U.S. military forces, and those responsible for the killings have not been held to account even as the number of children killed doubled from 2010 to 2011; where children under 18 languish in detention facilities without access to legal or full humanitarian assistance, or adequate resources to aid in their recovery and reintegration as required under international law. Some children were abused in U.S. detention facilities, and others are faced with the prospect of torture and ill-treatment if they are transferred to Afghan custody.

By ratifying OPAC in 2002, the U.S. committed to guaranteeing basic protections to children in armed conflict zones, and to submit periodic reports on the implementation of its treaty obligations to the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child. We wroteabout the latest U.S. report, released in November, which revealed that over 200 children have been held in U.S. custody in Afghanistan since 2008, some for lengthy periods of time. During its review of the U.S. on January 16, the Committee posed critical questions about the treatment of children by the U.S. military and issued recommendations to remedy these human rights violations.

These recommendations include taking “concrete and firm precautionary measures [to] prevent indiscriminate use of force” particularly against children, and ensuring all allegations of unlawful use of force are “investigated in a transparent, timely and independent manner” and that “children and families victims of attacks and air strikes do always receive redress and compensation.” In regard to the detention of juveniles, the Committee urged the U.S. to ensure that all children under 18 are detained separately from adults and guaranteed access to free and independent legal assistance as well as an independent complaints mechanism. Importantly, considering the previous U.S. response to the Committee revealed that the average age of children detained by U.S. forces is only 16 years old and the average length of stay for juveniles in U.S. military custody has been approximately one year, the Committee recommended children be detained only “as measures of last resort and for the shortest possible period of time and that in all cases alternatives to detention are given priority.”

Following recent revelations about President Obama‘s drone program — including a Justice Department memo that details some legal reasoning behind it — there’s been a flurry of both support and criticism. On Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) weighed in, defending the president.
"Every member of Congress needs to get on board," Graham said, according to POLITICO. "It’s not fair to the president to let him, leave him out there alone quite frankly. He’s getting hit from libertarians and the left."

and FOX says drones kill Muslims so it's all good.
some of you rightwingers need to get with the supporting Obama right wing program.
Exactly! Because if they deem Drones illegal; then if a Republican ever becomes President; his hands will be tied. If they say President Obamas use of drones is a war crime; well then Bush is his codefendant.
What a quandary.
