Former LAPD officer goes over the edge

Sorry but I do not see the humor in this thread or in my post. I said that Police are people too and they have issues. If you are not aware being a Cop is a very stress related job. Every time you put that uniform on and go to work , you are putting your life on the line. Maybe this guy just cracked. It does happen. Being a Cop in a large city, especially LA is stressful.

Sorry, but being a cop isn't even listed as one of the 10th most dangerous jobs. Being a farmer is more likely to kill you than being an officer. Learn the facts and stop watching too much TV.

Occupation --------------------------------Fatal Work Injuries per 100,000 FTE Workers-------------------- Number of Fatal Work Injuries

2. Logging Workers ---------------------------------------------- 102.4 ---------------------------------------------- 64

3. Aircraft Pilots and Flight Engineers ---------------------------------------------- 57.0 ---------------------------------------------- 72

6. Structural Iron and Steel Workers ---------------------------------------------- 26.9----------------------------------------------16

7. Farmers, Ranchers, and Other Agricultural Managers-----------------------25.3----------------------------------------------260

8. Driver/Sales Workers and Truck Drivers----------------------------------------------24.0----------------------------------------------759

10. Taxi Drivers and Chauffeurs----------------------------------------------19.7----------------------------------------------63

I'm not for innocents being killed, but something has to be done. The only thing that makes a difference in these days and ages, are the loss of life. Since we can not fix the corrupted law through the corrupted law, the only way to is now by going outside of the law. It's a sad fact. Innocents will die in life. It happens. But as any smart person knows, Destruction brings upon new life and new ways of life. This isn't something that doesn't apply to humans. We follow this universal law.

Has anyone here seen Training Day or Street Kings?

7 LA County sheriff's anti-gang unit deputies to be fired for membership in clique:

Police shoot two in Torrance in search for ex-LAPD cop:

Your first link goes to the 2nd link :p

It's a sad reality that this is something that is needed at the moment. Unless some brave high ranking government figure steps in and somehow starts a war on the corruption of our police force and the others that are a part of it, the only other way is through vigilantism. Talking to them or going through the courts won't do anything. We've seen it plenty of times already. The cops usually just get suspended with pay, and no one learns their lesson, except for the civiilizan; and that lesson is that you can't fight the law with the law and expect to win.

Until cops are held to a higher standard, and are punished to an extreme way that makes all other officers fall into line, corruption will always be rampant. If they know they can get away with it, those in power will do what ever they can do.

Most US citizens never took an oath to follow and obey the law. We just try to do the best we can. Those who have taken the oath though, such as government officials and police officers, should be held in an even higher degree of accountability for when they break it. Instead, it is the opposite, and they get away with breaking the law, while citizens get the worst of it.

I said it was stressful and in some area it is dangerous. Tell what you posted to the family of the following: I am an ex-cop and i do not watch TV.

Not too many Accountants are killed on the job!

I guess the source one uses makes a difference? Oh never mind you did not post one.

Dude, are you trolling? Ya, never said accountants had a dangerous job. I did list the ones that are more dangerous than a cops. Who cares what a family thinks. I go by what the real world is based off of. Statistics show that being an officer isn't as deadly as many other jobs. It's just people think it is due to all the TV they watch. Some area's might be bad, but over all, it isn't. I don't look at just 1 part of the puzzle though to get my ideas. I look at what is called ALL the puzzle.

My uncle is an ex-sherrif. He quit due to the reason this guy is going on his rampage. He couldn't handle how ****ed the law really is on the inside, and wasn't willing to "play the game" to be buddy buddy with the others on the field who were doing wrong. He quit and became a pastor to try and help in a different way. He didn't quit because he thought it was dangerous. He has even told me he was rarely if ever in any real danger. But the constant abuse of the law by the others in his precinct, and the general abuse of it by all others, was not something he was going to put up with. He said he felt more threatened by those on "his side" than any encounter he has ever had while on duty. Whistle blowers that are police who call out other police are seen as a threat by those in the blue.

I never said you did. Those are my words. Keep up the name calling. I posted a source that that shows that Police Officers are in the top 10.

Yup, 18 compared to 19 is more..... Police make either 11th or 12th, but are not among the top 10.

Yup it is a shame that it leads to such actions like in this case. It would be unrealistic to think that this can just be cleared up. I read somewhere that they also closed the air traffic to news crews: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2013/02/manhunt-faa-orders-media-copters-to-leave-.html

What you said also applies to other countries. In Europe some countries like the UK have been slacking lately like in the Murdoch case, and it is only the lower tier people that get the stick for it.

The solution is better training and better background checking and psych testing.

http://www.smartplan...n-america/11396

Here is the full list of work-related deaths in 2011 (per 100,000 workers):

Fisherman (121.2)

Loggers (102.4)

Pilots (57.0)

Farmers and Ranchers (25.3)

Police Officers (18.6)

Construction Workers (15.7)

National Average (3.5)

Firefighters (2.5)

Cashiers (1.6)

Office Admin (0.6)

Business and Finance Staff (0.5)

Number 5

Again, you are not too bright. That isn't the top 10 most dangerous jobs. National Average isn't even a job! They are just listing what jobs have had some deaths right there. Go look at an actual 10 Most Deadliest Jobs list. It doesn't list police.

Here is the actual list that you need to look at, PAGE 5. http://www.bls.gov/n...se/pdf/cfoi.pdf

This is the document that your link got it's information from. If you bothered to fully understand it, you will see that what you posted, is in fact, not the top dangerous jobs. PAGE 5 of that link does show what they are though.

Here is a pic of the page.

The national average of work related deaths is 3.5 per 100,000 workers. Policemen are almost 5 times that number.

It doesn't. He is trolling despite the fact that I have proven him wrong. He does this often when presented with evidence that counters what he "thinks". Rather annoying because discussion can't move forward.

http://www.smartplan...n-america/11396

On this source it does according to work related deaths per 100,000 workers. I, like I said am an ex cop and until you put on a uniform and place your life on the line every day you go to work, you can post all the stats you want. On the net one can find a source to back up just about anything. I wore the uniform and know the stress that is related to that Job. The OP is not about what number on a list a Cop's job is but about an officer that apparently cracked. All I said was that it could have been related to stress. Being a Marine or serviceman is not on that list either but do not try and tell me that a Marine's job is mot dangerous.

That source links to another source that everyone else has been looking at that says otherwise.

It does not mater, as it is OT. I know first hand how much stress is involved with being a Police Officer. I don't care what stats say about how dangerous the job is. Unless you are/were a cop in a large city you have no idea. That was my only point that I was trying to make. That it could have been due to stress. Sort of PTSD. It does happen to Police as well as the Military. One reason that Major Departments have Psychologists on staff to help Police Officers. Now then, I am finish discsuiing what place in someone stats a policemen belongs. I will only post to the OP, I wish everyone would do the same.

You clearly are for innocent people being killed, as you stated that "something has to be done", that the only thing that makes a difference is the "loss of life" and that the "only way" is by going "outside the law". I've read plenty of ridiculous statements in my time but that is certainly one of the worst offenders. That's the sort of insanity promoted by gun advocates, with the notion that the government has to be overthrown if it is considered to have stepped out of line. The answer to society's problems is not to go around killing people.

The worst part about the mis- identification is that hes reported to be in a Nissan Titan, not a Toyota Tacoma like they shot up.

Go Go LA cops, typical government corruption at work.

Yes .. Shooting at two occupants from behind whilst looking for one suspect. Incompetence is a mild stretch.
