Signs That The Lunatics Are All Around Us
Blogging HT to Gawker.
Christopher Jordan Dorner, the 33-year-old ex-LAPD officer who allegedly killed a young Los Angeles couple on Sunday in revenge for his termination from the force, is only getting started, according to a rambling manifesto, alternately terrifying and bizarre, that he posted to Facebook earlier this week. “The Violence of action will be HIGH. I am the reason TAC alert was established […] Whatever pre-planned responses you have established for a scenario like me, shelve it,” he writes. “Whatever contingency plan you have, shelve it. Whatever tertiary plan you’ve created, shelve it. I am a walking exigent circumstance with no OFF or reset button.”
Not really here to write about Mr. Dorner. If you want to read his “manifesto”, such as it is, it’s in two parts here and here. Two people in the Los Angeles area have already been shot by Torrance police who mistook them for Dorner.
What amazes me is the commentary thread on the Gawker pages. There’s an awful lot of, “… well, he certainly shouldn’t be killing people, but a lot of the things he says make sense…”
Maybe, it should be considered a sign… that maybe, you should revisit those things… when you’re finding yourself in agreement with a crazy person.
