After reading this manifesto of the accused cop killer Christopher Dorner, who's currently on the lam, I hesitated about linking to this. That's because he not only killed people but he even killed a person who didn't harm him directly but she was killed because she was the daughter of one of the people he had a beef with. To me, that's no better than what the Kim family in North Korea does to dissidents, where it's considered the norm to punish not only the original offender (no matter if the crime is violent or not) but also the offender's family for up to three generations.
But the manifesto does highlight the problem of police brutality, which has plagued police departments all over the country for decades. His beef with the LAPD isn't new. I'm old enough to remember the infamous Rodney King beatings and how the O.J. SImpson managed to beat the murder charges against him because prosecutors relied on the testimony of a corrupt police office named Mark Fuhrman. I'm linking to this because police brutality is an ongoing problem and Christopher Dorner is very articulate and powerful in his arguments. I only wished that he had done something to highlight that problem other than to kill people.
