    the four years he was out of the LAPD?  I still want to understand what drove him to his acts or do you just think somehow all LAPD cops are the same and that's it?

      he was in the NAVY! Dorner is clearly an authoritarian . There is a reason why a revolving door exists between the police & the military - they all share the same authoritarian mentality.

          I'm simply saying that the rationalization of a crooked cop comes from the same authoritarian scope as Dorner's actions.

          The only difference between Dorner and a crooked cop is that Dorner attacked his own & not some random person on the streets. Both feel as if they are morally righteous & doing it for 'the greater good'.

          It's like two twin brothers fighting each other over who they think mommy and daddy loves more.

          The problem is people can't say 'LAPD' without specifying exactly who is crooked within the LAPD, even though everybody knows that the LAPD has a history of being corrupt.

          And so you have the people who are Dorner fans versus the people who assume that anyone who criticizes the LAPD must be a cop hater in general.

      If thats what you're implying.

      But they have much of the same general psychology.
