Christopher Dorner Should Not Be Taken Alive
After reading the manifesto posted by ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, it is quite plain to view this individual as a person with a most troubled past. In his rambling account, he clearly defines his life as a "fight" between his own perceived honesty, and the racism that he believes most Caucasians harbor in their mind about the worth of Black Americans. Christopher Dorner is clearly a person who should not have been a police officer because his confused mental state tended to drive his entire career. His solution for the reform he calls for is not any better than that used by those he accuses of being bullies and racist. The problem I see with his being taken alive is that there are enough positives, as against his negatives, to insure that a jury of his peers will be stalemated by individuals employing the "hung jury" tactic, or a complete jury nullification, based on emotional issues rather than justice for the dead. Either of these results will only lead to more disorder in American society, and play into the hands of the Marxist in charge, President Obama, to take more individual rights from Americans so as to insure total "fairness" to all citizens. Unfortunately, issues in life can not be defined as either all good or all bad. But to insure a continuing flow of "norms", decisions must be made, and punishment given to individuals who decide to "dish out" their own brand of punishment rather than fight using only words. Christopher Dorner crossed the line, and I believe that America will be better served should he not be taken alive.
