Staggering ignorance on full display

Since Christopher Dorner took his own life last Thursday, no one in the media has felt the need to point out the dangerous implications of the staggering ignorance on full display.

If we are going to start listening to people who murder because of racial implications, we are in serious trouble. If we as a society do not have knowledge of the distinction between wrong and right on questions as simple as “Is it better to be a murderer or to be racist?”, humanity is also in trouble. The fact that the LAPD is investigating accusations made by an obvious psychopath on a killing spree should get your attention, if nothing else. This is a red flag that we are astray as a society. Common sense must intervene.

Dr. Marc Lamont Hill had an interesting comment regarding the situation:

They were even talking about making him the first domestic drone target. This is serious business here. I don’t think it’s been a waste of time at all. And as far as Dorner himself goes, he’s been like a real life superhero to many people. Now don’t get me wrong. What he did was awful, killing innocent people was bad, but when you read his manifesto, when you read the message that he left, he wasn’t entirely crazy. He had a plan and a mission here. And many people aren’t rooting for him to kill innocent people. They are rooting for somebody who was wronged to get a kind of revenge against the system. It’s almost like watching Django Unchained in real life. It’s kind of exciting.

Forget context, forget apologies — all of it. This is one of the most ignorant statements I have ever heard from a panelist. Who gave this guy his degree? How is he in charge of educating anyone? I think it’s time to produce some credentials, Columbia University. I want to see his doctoral thesis, because I honestly have a hard time believing someone this off-base could ever acquire a PhD. It’s honestly not even a matter of education, it is a matter of common sense.

If you take someone else’s life, whatever opinions are about politics should be irrelevant. Unless you were defending yourself, there is absolutely no excuse for killing innocent people. I understand there have been accusations of racism directed at the LAPD by Dorner. Which is worse, calling black people racial slurs, or killing them? Do we really need to have this discussion?

The debacle sheds light on how far public opinion has strayed from reality. We are entering a pernicious epoch, with our government seizing every opportunity to make itself more powerful every day. If we as a people don’t get our priorities right and our heads on straight, our decisions will be made for us, and our best interests won’t be a priority — according to history.

    Why did make Dorner snap? Was it because PTSD, or something in the water, what did the LAPD really do or is it something else. People losing it to this extreme seems to be a common place thing now a days. “Exciting” is not the word I’d use, “terrifying” would be a better word.

    TBH I don’t think Dr. Hill thinks that what Dorner did was exciting but more like how they have been picking apart Hitlers mind, actions, social and political impact around the world. I’m sure a lot of eggheads find this kind of thing interesting or “Exciting”

  2. Dorner’s complaint was more than racial slurs, it was about police using excessive force on a mentally ill person. Dorner’s complaint was dismissed and he blamed it in on LAPD cronyism. It doesn’t excuse murder, but the idea that law enforcement would even think about using a drone attack to stop one man from a killing spree is draconian. They are a trained police force: many against one, and clearly they weren’t able to help one of their own. The media again complicit with law enforcement and the government is to encourage the public that drone attacks against a lone killer is for “your own safety.” What kind of society are we going to become if we allow our government to dismiss due process?

  3. What I really don’t understand is the question that one would generally pose anywhere when it comes to risking the lives of few to obtain a more peaceful, or at least seemingly, world. If that was not the point, why would a government be involved in any military operations away from home, and how many pretentious reasons can be found to justify the atomic bomb that was thrown onto another country’s ground?

    Killing people is bad, indeed, but ever since the start of the promotion of ideologies, many of them are justified. The only problem here with Mr. Dorner is that his act was on an individual level. Should it have been between countries, it would probably became a totally different story.

    • Staving off an attack from agenda21 advocates is nothing more than a delay. The threat is still there and creeping forwards. We need to remove these people from government, with laws or votes or by any means possible. They are violating the constitution and should be imprisoned and made examples of.
