    What do you mean Donner had "no way out". He could have surrendered at any time.

    •  And trust that they would not shoot him down? (0+ / 0-)

      They rely on tried and true pretexts all the time like: "I thought he was reaching for a weapon"... oh well... better safe than sorry... keep pumping rounds into the corpse just to be sure. So I guess the disturbed guy who had little faith in the LAPD and police in general would all of a sudden start trusting them?... Especially when he had given them all a major reason to hate and fear him? Killing cops does wake them out of their routine.

      There were non lethal solutions to get him to surrender and face a courtroom and due process...  but not to that crowd - would take too long... short, fast revenge was what they wanted... Teaching lessons, being judge jury and executioner comes naturally to far too many in that line of work these days.

      Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie (hah...)
