The sole occupant and driver of the truck was not hit by gun fire and had no visible injuries at the time of the incident.
Members of the Torrance Police Department would like to send our thoughts and prayers to all law enforcement agencies, their families, and all innocent people who have been affected by Christopher Dorner’s actions.
Early on their actions were defended and deemed ‘reasonable’ considering the circumstances.. There is nothing reasonable about being rammed off the road by police and then shot at..
The focus should be on making sure LAPD and other police agencies are vastly improved.
The fact that LAPD and other police departments are so widely disliked is the reason so many people cheered on a guy who was accused of killing 2 cops and 2 innocent people..
The names of the officers who shot these folks have not been released.
I called LAPD this morning and they said they had no idea when the names would come out.
and it’ll take time, keen organizing and persistence to follow-up.
During the manhunt for Dorner we saw three innocent people who look nothing like Dorner get shot by officers in both LAPD and nearby Torrance PD.I guess it’s nice water cooler discussion, but for the most part its wasted intellectual capital especially if we have access to the masses..It’s been said over and over again…Dorner, like him or not left us a solid trail of information in which he lays out a litney of wrong doings by LAPD..The case around David Perdue also identified as ‘Dan’ in some news stories who was shot by Torrance police is even more troubling..He was on his way to surf when he was stopped by police who ran a check on him and sent him on his way..In the minds of many, Dorner’s egregious actions weren’t too far removed from the realities far too many have experienced. Discontent with the police ranges from folks in the hood under siege for the wars on drugs, gangs and every other vice the police like to heap on entire groups of people, to the students, activists involved with the Occupy Movement to folks who by no fault of their own saw the economy tanked, lost their jobs and then their homes through foreclosure and had to deal with police holding it down for the banks and locking them out..
