  •  It's Very Troubling That He's That Rational (19+ / 0-)

    and plausible in his complaints and yet his response is multiple killing including of total innocents. One reason I want him taken alive is that he gets a thorough emotional and mental evaluation.

    •  Taken Alive? (10+ / 0-)

      I tend to doubt that will happen.   Looks like he's not going easy and looks like LAPD and the other police forces are interested in taking him any way but dead.

        ...not arrest him.

        Then again, I'm not a police officer, never been trained as one. Who knows, perhaps opening fire at a suspect/ suspect's truck is standard operating procedure when you're on bodyguard duty?

        •  He has declared war on police officers and (0+ / 0-)

          their family members.  If he sees them first he kills them.  No warning.  Chances are if encounters cops the first one that shoots and hits the target is going to live.  Otherwise you're dead.  

          Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

      community is sufficiently scared of this guy that it is unlikely that he will be brought into custody alive.  They are not going to take the chance that he escapes somehow and that their families will be targeted.

        L.A. County Sheriff's Department intends to fire seven deputies

        The Times reported last year about the existence of the clique, dubbed the Jump Out Boys, and the discovery of a pamphlet that described the group's creed, which required aggressive policing and awarded tattoo modifications for police shootings.

          The LAPD which is city when they arrest you drop you into the sheriffs hands which is county before you eventually to go to court. LAPD runs the city jails like at precincts. Sheriffs at the twin towers in downtown Los Angeles. The sheriffs run the county jails and go after fugitives. Well, the Sheriffs don't really run the jails per say either.... Anyone who has been in LA County knows the inmates run it and the Sheriffs hide in cages. I know from experience. When I was in for 5 days I saw Sheriffs on the way in and on the way out but never in between. The inmates do everything including choosing what cell you will be in. So when those sheriffs are talking about shooting people its most likely when they are serving warrants for the county or gang units. LAPD also has cliques like this which is why a lot of us Angelenos consider them a gang as well.
