Those well trained LEO should and can have weapons that are unsafe for the average citizen to have. Cops well never use them unsafely as they are well trained. Only reason cops are allowed to have hi-cap mag and guns on the ban list is to keep them on the side of the anti's.
Waiting for more details on this to come out.Mistakes like that are not normal or common for that matter
I can't believe there isn't more press coverage on this..Seems no one wants to talk about it in the press.
None of the ridiculous "Assault weapons" bans would have even applied to him.
Police can own and carry all of them, and none of the departments report that they have departmental weapons stolen and missing all of the time.
So what he is really saying is that you get to be disarmed, but not him, because he was a cop, and so his rampage would not have been avoided by any ban in place in any case.
Supposedly the shooter according to his manifesto has some Precision Rifles and Suppressors,so if he has the training to shoot accurately out past 500 yards,he could find a shooting position to overlook a target and after shooting they would have no idea where the shot came from,not to mention if he went to this length to exact revenge I'm gonna guess he has at least one other vehicle that can't be linked to him like a van,and will wait until they relax their guard and then strike again
LA Times this morning...don't see a word about LAPD terrorizing and gunning down the public or about the officers involved.....
Should tell you a lot about that damn place.
Thank god they didnt have a 30 round magazine...
It is so easy, to second guess, and monday morning quarterback these cops from the comfort of your homes in Nebraska, and Oklahoma, and wherever. How bout we let the dust settle, and get the "rest of the story" before we condemn these cops? You and I don't have all the facts, but we're real quick to Judge these guys and gals.
Maybe they were wrong, and if they were, it should come out, and they should be held responsible. But I'll not judge them based on a newspaper story or TV story. They're facing a well trained murderer, who knows or expects to die as a result of his actions. Everyone wearing a badge in LA has a target on them right now. Let's let them deal with it, in real time. There will be plenty of time for finger pointing and conspiracy theories after the fact.
I pray they catch or kill this murderer before he has any more success.
Now that this guy has abandoned and burned his pickup...CA residents who happen to own similar vehicles should be a bit safer.
Training should have prevented such an incident.
This whole situation is really sad and bizarre.
Anyone remember the DC Sniper? He had less training than this guy and look how long he got away with it.
WRT those officers getting fired for killing innocents...won't ever happen. That behavior is justified behind the blue line.
Haneous neglegence by LA LE..............that could have been anyone in that truck......talk about Profiling.......Geeezzzzz.
Same as another thread: http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...civilians.html
The Citizen of LA miss the notification that Southern California was now a free fire zone for LAPD!
