  •  Have to say I agree. (7+ / 0-)

    It does appear that he was mistreated and subjected to injustice. From the liberal perspective this is important to know, understand, and respond to. But from the liberal perspective with regards to his victims, his actions are completely indefensible.

    This is what separates liberalism from conservatism; the desire to understand why people do what they do in order to improve the human condition without excusing the unethical behavior of the individual.

    The most I am willing to agree with the author is that many are culpable in the deaths of these three people but Mr. Dormer bears the responsibility, assuming he is of sound mind.

      Many are culpable in the deaths of these three people.
      Christopher Dorner alone is culpable and responsible for murdering three people and permanently disfiguring the lives of their survivors.
