Why you're not seen as Officer Friendly anymore, Reasons #37 and 38:

37: You're a panicky jerk with no self-control and apparently lousy training.
38: The high-ranking police officials who're supposed to see that you DO have self-control and training urged Beck to clear the officers of wrongdoing, according to several sources who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the case.
Just effing disgusting.

Eight Los Angeles police officers who opened fire on two women delivering newspapers in a pickup truck during the hunt for Christopher Dorner violated the LAPD's policy on using deadly force, the department's oversight body found Tuesday.

In making its ruling, the Police Commission followed the recommendation of LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, who faulted the officers for jumping to the conclusion that Dorner was in the truck. Beck said the officers compounded their mistake by shooting in one another's direction with an unrestrained barrage of gunfire.

Reports made public Tuesday offered new details of the hours that led up to the shooting and how it erupted into a wild, one-sided firefight in which the officers fired shotguns and handguns more than 100 times. One woman was shot twice in the back; her daughter received superficial wounds
THERE WAS NO FIREFIGHT; there was a bunch of idiots with badges shooting in panic at the WRONG kind of vehicle with WOMEN INSIDE instead of a large male.

And the bastards- excuse me, 'high-ranking police officials' who should've been ready to tear the ass off these idiots for what they did tried to cover for them...

google Brian McGee.

He was the officer that rammed a pickup and then shot at the (White!) driver because he thought he was the (black) Chris Dorner.

Now that you mention, I was wondering if we'd hear something about that mess.

Either they're still in hearings or trying desperately to make it go away.

I cannot agree that the police compounded the mistake by shooting at one another. The only thing about this whole sordid mess where the police were doing anything approaching what they should do as police is when they were shooting at one another, because police are supposed to shoot at people who are shooting at innocent people.
