christopher dorner is the fellow in southern california who is killing police officers over an employment grievance of some standing, stemming from his former employment by the los angeles police department.
i know naught about the merits his grievance, and very little about the disciplinary proceeding that led to his dismissal. and, i doubt i'll learn anything else about it from the lamestream media.
what we have learned from his rampage is very simple, and very basic, and something we should not forget. and, that is, the police are no better at protecting themselves then they are at protecting us. i know as a matter of fact and as a matter of law, (having been both a prosecuting attorney, "deputy" variety, and running my own law office doing contract criminal defense), that the police have absolutely no legal duty to protect an individual. that means, if you make a 911 call telling the police that you are being attacked and they do not respond in a timely fashion to stop the attack, that you have absolutely no legal recourse against the police even if you can show neglect or indifference to your predicament.
consider this. again.
the police do not protect you, and are not legally responsible to.
the police seldom can react to a situation with enough dispatch to stop an ongoing attack or crime.
and, only infrequently, are the police able to resort to the use of weapons to protect an individual, or stop the occurrence of what we might call a discrete crime.
the come, they pick up the pieces, and they investigate, and they arrest who they can catch on occasion, and they arrange for the transport of the victim to the hospital or the morgue, as the case may be.
and, what christopher dorner shows us with absolute clarity, is that they are no better at protecting themselves, than you. when police forces do effectively apply force, as is the case of the military, is when they have time to react and to mass forces.
but, left on their own, or not in a fighting mode, they are as vulnerable to attack as you and i. their weapons, their training, are absolutely ineffectual if not in hand, and if they have not had a chance to switch into "fighting mode."
christopher dorner simply walked up to two policemen sitting in a car, and shot them both, and to the best of my knowledge, neither had a chance to react, or deploy a weapon.
some years ago, in tacoma, washington four officers were sitting in a booth in a coffee shop, drinking coffee and eating donuts. a fellow walked in, sat at the counter, and bent over a coffee cup. he got up, walked toward them, and pulled a weapon, shooting them as they sat. he killed all four, killing three before they could draw their weapons. a fourth officer, (a woman, i think) did manage to return fire, and she wounded the fellow in the abdomen. she also died in the "exchange" of gunfire, if memory serves me correctly.
he walked out.
simple as that.
he was captured some time later, having taken to ground in tacoma and unable to leave town because of his wound. i think the people who harbored him, finally figured out he was as dangerous to them as he was to the police.
had he not been wounded, i doubt he ever would have been captured.
the point is simply this.--
the person who attacks has all the advantage in the world over the person who defends. if we sit idly by and wait for the swat teams to attack us with force in our individual homes when and if gun control and confiscation is ordered, then the forces of the government will prevail. over time, they will prevail.
if, on the other hand, if and when gun confiscation is ordered or "imposed" by law, we simply attack, whether in coordinated groups or as lone individuals, we will put obama's henchmen and such police who try to enforce such brutally illegal legislation to the rout. we will sow fear and terror in the government forces who try to impose tyranny upon us.
because, guess what? they will be completely defenseless to such attack, just as the police sitting in the donut shop in tacoma, washington and just as the police sitting in their patrol car in los angeles, california.
if we attack them, we can kill them with near impunity. if we wait to be attacked, they have every advantage.
so, if and when gun confiscation or other draconian law is legislated or imposed by executive order, then our order of the day is simply to attack those who are in "authority" whenever and wherever we see them. every time. with the application of deadly force.
this will be, for those in authority, "genuine" terror.
i know this. it is verity.
now you know it.
guess who else knows it?
