Protect and Serve: LAPD Officers Open Fire on Innocent Women

Protect and Serve: LAPD Officers Open Fire on Innocent Women

According to CBS News, Los Angeles Police officers were guarding the Torrance, Calif., home of a high-ranking police official early Thursday morning when a pair of women delivering newspapers approached in a royal blue Toyota pickup.

The police apparently mistook the Toyota for the dark blue or black Nissan pickup thought to be driven by rogue LAPD officer and cop-killer Christopher Dorner.

Check out the video from CBS Los Angeles:


According to the women, the police opened up on them without warning, riddling the Toyota and putting a bullet in one woman's back and cutting the other with broken glass. In the meantime, other cops just blocks away opened up on a man in a black Honda pickup, holing it repeatedly.


I can understand why cops might get a little trigger-happy when potentially confronting a renegade from their own ranks. But hosing down two vehicles whose only similarity to the target truck was Japanese manufacture has to go down as the worst sort of ineptitude.

If the LAPD is going to resort to this sort of Keystone Kops policing, maybe the Smith & Wesson Regulation Police revolver needs to be its next issue sidearm.
