Warning to All Drivers of Pickup Trucks (Not Painted White) In LA

You had best park your truck until the LAPD catches/kills Christopher Dorner.

For the LAPD is clearly operating by the rule of "shoot first and ask questions later".
Two women who were shot by Los Angeles police in Torrance early Thursday during a massive manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer were delivering newspapers, sources said.
The truck that the women were driving was neither the same make nor the same color as Dorner's truck, but that didn't stop the LAPD from lighting it up anyway. They also shot up another person's truck, but fortunately, they didn't hit the driver. But they did ram his truck, totaling it. The driver, a white guy who weighs a hundred pounds less that Dorner, was hurt in the crash and the cops opened fire when his airbag deployed.

Remember all of those stories six years ago about twitchy-trigger soldiers shooting up Iraqi families in their cars? Not so remote, now, is it?

Yea, I read that too. Nutzy to open season on pickups like that. And people complain about errant rounds from the citizens!
They better be more careful, that stray cop isn't the only one that has a gun down there. The cops could start a war.
Scary Days.
and why the heck are the cleti buying up .22's also? Rifle ammo I could see, maybe 9's and .45's but the lowly .22 Long Rifle??? Is that part of their defense arsenal? My local store didn't even have .22's except on delivery day. I am getting to old for this shit.

Too Old, too.

w3ski, while .22 is hardly the world's deadliest round, you can't expect the cleti to understand that not all bullets are the same. Why, if they can't find 9mm for their Glock, they'll just buy a 100 round magazine for their Ruger .22 carbine, yo!

Regarding the LAPD shooting the newspaper ladies, clearly all them Jap trucks look the same to them. A blue Toyota Tacoma vs. a silver Nissan Titan? Plus, they were delivering the Los Angeles Times, which the LAPD considers a deadly weapon in the first place!
