    Really, are some people so insecure about their political and social beliefs that the ravings of a terribly ruined, mentally ill, murderer are reassuring and somehow validating? He needs prayers and capture ASAP, not attention.

    •  who is disputing that, for heaven's sake!? (2+ / 0-)

      don't you think that it is worth asking the LAPD about the racism he covers?  Or don't you think it matters if the LAPD is that racist?

      Who cares about Michelle Obama's hair - I don't, and why do you?

      catch the guy, put him on trial, yes please - but also think about the condition of the LAPD -  NOT for his sake, but for LA.

      •  You're raising the important question here... (0+ / 0-)

        ..and I say not really. Of course the continuous, insidious and systemic problems in the LAPD (e.g., violence, racism, abuse) should be under a microscope and a top priority. But this man and his manifesto are neither reliable nor is it a good idea to even imply he may trigger the revenge he's seeking.  

        •  I don't think I am implying anything (0+ / 0-)

          and certainly don't intend to........

          catch the guy and stop him from doing any more harm - let's focus on that

          California has laws that protect the files of the police officers, even their records of excessive force are not available to the public. People have sued the police discovered the officer involved has a long record of excessive force but can not get the documentation to use it in court.  

          If you have the names dates and places it is possible to get the information by other means that the officers personal file.

          That is why many who are trying to do something about these problems think it is very important.

          and yet weren't before this then I'm not sure what your point is. It's clear that our society has a near complete lack of accountability for people with power, and as such you can expect more things like this to happen.  LAPD is lucky this hasn't spread.

          Remember when those of us in Occupy were saying that by making peaceful revolution impossible you make violent revolution necessary.  This is exactly what we meant.

          •  It? what is 'it'? (0+ / 0-)

            Murder and terrorism should not be a legitimatized ice-breaker. Seems like a pretty uncontroversial caution. The wanted man has issues with Asians, women, lesbians and kills the daughter of one of his ex-bosses and so the public should take action on his workplace complaints?

            Assuming we all would support high priority action on any LAPD reforms and internal investigations, the exploitation of this mentally ill fugitive seems as illogical as taking the rantings of a right-wing murderer as grounds to attack gov't.

            You made a preposterous claim about Occupy when you're only speaking for yourself which I'll take as hyperbole.

            •  This is what always happens (0+ / 0-)

              The people who actually stand up aren't perfect and so we aren't allowed to do anything about the problem.

              So we shouldn't do anything about corruption because the person pointing it out has serious problems?  They ruined this guys life because he reported fellow officers for brutality.
              You made a preposterous claim about Occupy when you're only speaking for yourself which I'll take as hyperbole.
              It isn't hyperbole at all.  We will see more and more of this.  Occupy was villainized on the left for not being inclusive enough and then declared useless when we worked on fixing that.  People are sick of the complete lack of accountability of those in power and will increasingly turn to violence to deal with the problem.  This is only the beginning.
