I just read Dorners manifesto and his comments on racism by White officers and Reverse racism by black commanders struck a cord with me.
Growing up a white kid in the PNW, I had to join the Military to learn about racism... and it's rampant in both directions, in any "armed" organization where "Equal Opportunity" reigns... Those who say otherwise are just not being honest.
Being a Veteran myself, I can totally understand a guy who served an honorable military career, having zero patients for corruption and making the mistake of crossing the "thin blue line".
I also believe you'd have to look into a Mexican drug cartel to find another organization as corrupt as the LAPD.
Seems to me that the "thin blue line" finally crossed the wrong guy...
...and a trained Vet with nothing too loose is a dangerous adversary.
The knowledge that we will never fully get his side of this story because the LAPD will execute him onsite sorta makes me want to root for him... A little...
Don't me hate me for that.
