The LAPD has always been out of control. That cop will end up killing himself.
Never, but he will never surrender either.

Right now, despite every cop in the region being on the case, they have no clue where he is. Most of the cops are milling around in the snow at Big Bear, but Dorner is probably long gone.

By doing this, he is violating Geneva Convention Article 3 Section 1A which states that “violence to life and person” are prohibited in reference to civilians and “Persons taking no active part in the hostilities.” In doing this Obama has committed war crimes"
but the GOP supports drone strikes. no matter who is killed.

so it can't be a war crime. re: Iraq.

In my long and zig-zag quest to marry the most unsuitable women possible, I married one of them and was subsequently condemned to live and fish there for many years. I bear the scars to this day. We should compare notes someday were it not so entirely predictable. "Hey, y'all want more greets?" I realize now that my experiences in the south can be analogized to the vocalizations of a TV character many years ago... Lurch groaning.

Obama going to bed at 11PM so he'd be fresh to party hearty with Beyonce and JayZ was your story Flacko and you sure as fk didn't hear Panetta say that.

Meanwhile, a myriad of other crimes will not be attended to because they're all on a wild goose chase. He can't hide forever. I think he'll kill himself.

That sort of thing happened in Vietnam because the troops didn't want to obey lawful, but stupid, orders in a ridiculous war where they were a political sacrifice.
Come to think of it, that might apply now.
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.

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.

The nifty thing about the convenient concept of there not being any such thing as an "illegal" order, is that if the orders are never illegal then no one can ever be held accountable for issuing them. Quite the catchy arrangement.

Oh really? It's never going to happen, because it will then open the can of worms that Nancy Pelosi put to bed when she said "impeachment is off the table", if they start; then Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz et al, are going down with the ship.

Uproar has been evident on both sides of the aisle following the recent news about President Obama‘s drone program. Not everyone, however, has been critical. Including Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson, who questioned some of the outrage during this morning’s show.

Carlson wondered why the issue is “suddenly a topic of discussion.” American-born Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in a drone strike in 2011, and there weren’t many outraged immediately afterward, she said — save for the ACLU and some libertarians.

Yes, it’s hypocritical for Obama to criticize President George W. Bush‘s tactics, Carlson continued, but that’s a separate issue.“Are you against actually killing terrorists?” she asked.

seems it's a right/left game.
