    Dorner: Executed or Accident?

    It appears from this article http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lano...ned-cabin.html that Dorner was killed by LA Police. Whether it was done intentionally or not is the question?

    "Accident" wouldn't play into things anyway. He either did himself (which I suspect) or waited for a ridiculously painful end.

    I'm pretty sure that the cops started the fire and I suspect that Dorner did himself in at that point.

    There is a town in Texas called Waco. Another unfortunate accident.

    We have no proof to confirm he is dead (I.e a body). He could have escaped through a back door, which given the level od incompetence that the lapd has shown in trying to subdue dorner, it is possible he escaped.

    The article says the police shot teargas canisters in the cabin knowing they'd likely start a fire. The comments by LAPD are reported as saying, "burn this mother****er down."

    Since when has tear gas been used to start a fire?

    Does it really matter at this point? The man is most probably dead. He and the cops decided to make this to the death. It was a mutual decision. He's dead now. Unless they have the wrong person.

    There should be a third category in the above poll and that is "Who cares?"

    Even in our liberal, pop culture, tolerant, no judgments society, some people reveal themselves to be so depraved that they need killing. Dorner was in that category.

    Either way it's pretty easy to defend the action. If it was a mistake then they were going above and beyond to subdue him without killing him. If they knew it would cause a fire then it's no different than a sniper taking him out which would of been pretty legitimate as well based on his pattern of behavior.

    Yes, I think it matters how the police handle themselves in any situation, regardless of how sociopath the perp appears. Once we allow our officials to make decisions based on irrational emotion we're going down a dark path.
