I don't believe it's all of them either.
I would guess maybe 10% of them are decent people. But most of those don't last very long.
The other 90% are no better than the scum they arrest. Nothing but gangbangers with a badge.

Actually about 10% of them are corrupt, but the others are just as bad because they look the other way, and lie and cover-up. They talk among themselves in code so that they never have to respond to the public in their terminology in regard to their corrupt acts.

What makes it even worse is the Court takes the cops word 99% of the time because law-enforcement has to be trusted or we have a third world country where all the cops are on the take and the legal system is a joke. We've been heading that way, just barely holding on to some semblance of justice and fair play.

Rationalizing their illegal behavior is what starts corruption and criminal acts. Corrupt cops who rationalize their actions as 'just' or 'justice' if not 'self defense' are not police officers but individuals out to make a buck. Once their own survival take priority over the lives they are protecting is when they should be pulled offed the streets and their leaders changed. It's ends justifies the means logic.
This ex cop took the spotlight off of LAPD corruption. Beside the dead victims now many victims of police corruption will not be heard.
==========
Rationalizing their illegal behavior is what cops do everyday of their lives. This guy is just being an LA Cop, but more bold.

SIX cops watched Kelly Thomas get beaten to death, but only one is charged with a seriuos crime. All six should be behind bars.

Well, "just as bad" means 90% of them are scum. So we are on the same page.

It's really too bad so many average people such as us know this. I'm amused at morons who think it's only gangbangers types who feel the way we do. Many of us are edcuated, succesful professionals.

Yes, it is a joke that the courts always believe cops. They lie so much!

Haven't seen two much on the TWO WOMEN that were mistakenly SHOT for resembling the suspect; one 270 pound MAN on mainstream tv/radio news especially.

Haven't seen much on the case that set him off ie the alledged beating of Richard Gettler by his training officer a Sgt Teresa Evans either and subsequent firing for making false charges(still wondering why it just wasn't considered an unfounded report).

BUT no matter the reason or motivation you do NOT shoot innocent people. If he had a gripe with his ex cop lawyer at least have the guts to confront him and not his kids. I do believe there is some credibility to his 'story' but now police corruption in LA will take a back seat to this rampage. His victims will not get the coverage they deserve either-it's now the rampage and manhunt.

The son of the devil is still a demon.

Women who marry cops are as scummy as the cops. Their offpsring are just as bad. They are not innocent.

Don't want to have their slime on your hands? Don't be stupid enough to be associated with those legal gangbangers.

This IS a tragedy. I hate to say it but it sounds like he HAD a legitimate gripe. BUT! the second he started killing for personal revenge he IS DONE.
And like every other wack job he kills innocent people and not those directly associated with his problem. NOW innocent people must suffer his wrath. Besides criminal murder worthy of the death penalty this alledged whistle blower looks hypocritical now. If there are any corrupt or abusing LA cops still on the streets they are still there. More importantly their friends and family of the deceased missing a loved one.
Isn't this what police officers are supposed to prevent.
What was he fired for, an the bosses need to do things in a pehaps kinder gentler fashion!! next -time,

Well, it's always nice when they & their families get a little grief, in light of how much they give to others.

Don't know what it's like in NC. But in Southern California, cops are nothing but gangbangers with a badge.

He was fired for reporting one of his bosses for excessive force. He was pretty naive to think he was going to change things. They beat people up every chance they get. Nothing but a bunch of cowards.

That's why it was so funny to hear Chief Scumbag Charlie Beck call Dorner's actions those of a coward. Please! You lead the biggest cowards of them all!

Yeah, technology (phone cameras) are catching some of them in the act on rare occasions. But they usually grab the cameras from the people filming and delete the videos.

Once in a while, security cameras from local businesses are running and they don't know it. Slamming petite women onto the ground, punching or slamming people down who are already in handcuffs, threatening people...all kinds of crap that has no business in law enforcement. They truly are just thugs with a badge.

Hell, the 6 Fullerton cops who beat Kelly Thomas to death were caught on tape and as I mentioned above, only ONE is being charged with a serious crime!! It's a joke.

So, when a cop gets whacked here in So Cal, many of us just chaulk it up to karma. It's sad and I truly wish I didn't feel this way. But when you don't respect the authority with which you have been charged, you shouldn't expect respect from the citizenry you are paid to protect.

IN 2011 there was an Illinois man facing 75 years in prison for videotaping a policeman in public.

From The Blaze:
"The man, Michael Allison, recorded police officers on duty in his front yard inspecting vehicles he was repairing.

Allison was fined for failing to register the vehicles, and so he requested an ordinance hearing, and once again he brought his camera into the court and hit record.

For those simple acts, Allison is facing five felony charges calling for 15 years in prison per each count– a possible total of 75 years."

There was such a public protest over that one that the judge threw the case out.

The Supreme Court has since knocked down that portion of Illinois law as a violation of the 1st Amendment.

Illinois...... a great state to be from. A long ways from.

1,700 people are supporters of Dorner on Facebook (more by now).& only 150 people showed up to the dead pigs vigil.All witch were white no other race can be seen attending on the press enterprise papers pic . Pictures speak louder than words.I think it's easy to tell who the community is standing behind.The vigil looked like a kkk meeting .
(All Supporters of Dorner Burn a Candle outside your front door.)
Just like the American founding fathers did burned a candle outside their door if u supported the revolution
The Honda truck that was shot at after the 2 old lady's was rammed off the side of the road then shot at .look and listen to news footage you'll see the side of the truck has been hit also listen to the reporter talk about a collision before the shooting.

If Dorner killed all three, the headline would read: Dorner Kills the Three Little Pigs
