Is it just me or does it seem like all the cops have run and hid somewhere? Like, the last few days around So. Cal and even here in Vegas, like not one Black and White and no motorcycle cops? Is it that angry guy? Seems like he drug them all up Big Bear then dumped a foot of snow on them and all their cop trucks and cars and armored personal carriers and Swat helicopters and news conferences and millions and millions of taxpayer dollars’ worth of stuff and everybody knew he was miles away and they stayed to make some taxpayer funded point for some reason. People just watching on TV while these retards slosh around the snow looking for tracks of something long gone. Meanwhile, they are all hiding like little girls back home, driving personal cars around. Kinda cool, life without cops driving around everywhere being all toolish and angry. One Guy having this effect. Maybe it’s just me. Thank God I don’t have a morning newspaper route in a dark pickup…bitches just open up on you! F the Constitution!

Kinda makes you wonder if you could really count on these guys if the 8.0 happens or if you want the nastiest looking pistol gripped multi giant magazine sized Rambo Mother F**ker gun you can lay hands on protecting your wife and kids in front of your shook down hovel when roving bands of thirsty come moving thru. Kinda feel like one guy >>>maybe the guy >>cuts one down in Riverside and they all scatter, what will they do when a big one hits? I’m guessing they will dig a hole, bury their badges and uniforms, take the government issued guns and make a run for it.

I’m beginning to realize, now that they are gone, even for a short time, there weren’t that many of them to begin with. It’s all show. Like the Dead Said..”It’s all to clear we’re on our Own, Sayin Ashes to Ashes All Burn Down”

It's all a bit much.

2 people dead in LA, that's just a standard police report.

2 cops dead and they shut down the state and open unlimited resources, overtime, and issue an open budget to get the guy...

Whatever.

I like Pelosi's comment:

Feinstein and Boxer Ask Californians to Lay Down Their Weapons During Statewide Manhunt

(PP)- As an ex-Los Angeles police officer killed three people and went on a deadly shooting rampage in a vendetta to punish those he attributed for his firing, California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer pleaded for calm, and asked both law enforcement and civilians to lay down their weapons.

An intense manhunt for Christopher Dorner that aroused fear across several states and Mexico focused late Thursday on Big Bear Lake, about 80 miles east of Los Angeles, where police found a burned-out pickup truck that belonged to the ex-military and former police officer Dorner.

Throughout the day, Senators Feinstein and Boxer made desperate pleas for their California constituents to turn in their guns and not confront the crazed gunman because this would be a perfect test of their anti-gun proposals.

“The Senators feel the best course of action is to remove all weapons from law enforcement and private citizens so no one else gets hurt,” said a Senate communications intern. “When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.”

“I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to Los Angeles Police Department officers, on or off duty,” said Dorner in his angry manifesto published online. The rant also claimed that: “Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That’s what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name.”

Other California lawmakers chimed in on the Senators’ anti-gun stance with Los Angeles’ Democrat Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa saying disarmament was a good idea, except for public officials. Republicans thought the idea was just crazy.

“Feinstein and Boxer want everybody to go unarmed as a madman is running a round shooting people,” said a Riverside, CA. alderman. “If that is the truth… I’m never going to San Francisco again… something must be in the water to make them that insane.”

Dorner, 33, had multiple weapons including a frivolously banned assault rifle, said Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck, who urged the suspect to surrender at an unusual press conference in an underground high security room where police were shaking in their boots.

“Of course he knows what he’s doing, we trained him. He was also a member of the Armed Forces,” he said. “It is extremely worrisome and scary.”

The Palookaville Post has learned that nearly 10,000-members of the LAPD were dispatched to protect more than 108 potential targets across the region on Thursday. The department also said that the federal government was in fact more dangerous than the lone suspect because their ideas of weapon confiscation can hurt millions of Americans over several generations.

Putting down their weapons is simply not an option for all legal gun owners. It is their Constitutional right and moral responsibility to protect their loved ones…. it should be obvious.

So now we need to arm ourselves against rogue cops. Yeah, that sounds like the way to go. Add more guns. Great. Love it.

BTW, lets see the actual Feinstein and Boxer quotes on this manhunt. Someone is just making crap up.

C'mon Monolith,
It's one thing to hate guns, but it's stupid to say unarming law enforcement and citizens will make bad guys just lay down their guns out of human nature...

That is naive and even could be argued as stupid.

Who said anything about unarming law enforcement? Or were you just trying to be funny?

The Pallokaville post is a satire on their beliefs... It says it in there with a "nudge nudge haha" but times they are a changin'.

Yeah, it could probably be satire.


But look who is echoing it like they believe it.

Hope they get a settlement so they don't have to work the rest of their lives.
