My thoughts on Christopher Dorner, or “Sit down kiddies, I’m going to say things that are really going to PISS YOU OFF” UPDATED
Blame Wirecutter for getting me started.
As of this writing Chris Dorner is alive, upright and walking around still scaring the shit out of cops all over California. They should be. I don’t know what set him off; It could have been he had a mother who left him constantly to go be a fuck toy around the globe. Or he could have had a father who was a rutting pig who eventually drank himself to death. Or he could have had grandparents’ who were fanatical communists who, when they tired of the little brat, dumped him off on another fanatical communist who also happened to be a murdering child diddler. We don’t know.
All that we do know is that he’s insane but not crazy. Crazy would mean he’s a drooling moron incapable of operating in a normal world. He ain’t all that, but he is insane but so was Hitler and look what he accomplished. Remember, he’s one man who has single handily turned professional law enforcement into the Three Stooges. One man.
Why is this important? Because he’s doing what hundreds of thousands, if not millions of us Americans are going to do if/when Obongo The Kenyan Klingon Fucker™ goes full tilt dictator.
Here’s the part that will piss you off.
What Dorner is doing is classic Asymmetric Warfare or Fourth Generational Warfare (4GW) and so far, doing it very well. Shooting the daughter of the guy you blame for fucking you over in the head is horrifying, terrifying and very, very effective. It sends a message that is both nihilistic and clear. By any means necessary and this is why the LAPD is terrified. He not only will kill us, he’ll go after our families. Kind of makes you realize that maybe you need to clean up your act. Genghis Khan and his merry band did the same thing. He rode up to a village and made them an offer that they couldn’t refuse but if they did he simply killed everyone, burned and looted the village and then pissed on the ashes. Brutal but effective and I don’t think he had a line item in his budget for a PR guy.
Again, one man. You did pick up your copy of Resistance to Tyranny didn’t you?
Dorners’ had five years to prepare for this and has managed again, alone, to up end the entire law enforcement community to the point that they’re shooting first and asking questions later. He’s taken their playbook and rewriting it to suit his own environment i.e. he knows their training, tactics and techniques and is using that knowledge against them. Add in the training he received with Naval Security Forces and you have a very bad dude. Insane but not crazy. After all he has over 200 cops trudging up and down mountains, freezing their asses off looking for him and nothing to show for it. This guy is not going to barricade himself in a house and wait for the SWAT guys. The SLA tried that and Nancy Ling Perry and Camilla Hall got ventilated and the rest became over cooked steaks (A1 anybody?). The NVA also tried in the beginning to stand up to the American running dogs of Capitalism but soon realized that was a one way ticket to a dirt nap. Running and hiding after shooting is a completely justifiable tactic. He’s going to take the fight to them.
The other part that makes (or least it should) the LAPD (and OGAs) terrified is that what if he’s built a support network/system that will aid him? What if he has created a system that will give him food, shelter, cover, money, first aid and most of all intelligence for not only survival but offensive planning? Now to really piss off the world and I’M NOT PASSING JUDGMENT here. In some communities a plurality, if not an outright majority, of minorities see the LAPD as a racist, tyrannical army of occupation, much like Paloswines see the IDF. Again, I’m not passing judgment but that’s the reality. What if Dorner has tapped into this? In some parts of LA the thugs have an ISR capability that would make the old MVD green with envy. They know where every LAPD officer and car is almost 24/7 and they have the ability it relay that information in a timely manner. If Dorner has managed ingratiate himself into this network then it could be years before they could flush him out. Don’t believe me just look on Twitchy and see who the liberals are rooting for. Think they might do more if asked?
Again, read Wirecutters take on what will happen and learn the lessons.
btw, anybody checked Charlie Sheen’s house lately?
Update: Somebody might think I have a man crush on Wirecutter but, fuck, he nails it.
I wonder who they’re going to fuck up next – a nun in a Toyota sedan because she’s wearing black? A heavyset black businessman on his way to the office in his SUV?
If Rodney King was still alive I bet he’d be catatonic, barricaded in his bedroom.
Update II: From ZeroHedge: US To Use Drones in Chris Dorner Manhunt. The money shot:
And once Dorner is found by remote-control, it will be again up to drones to secure his “elimination.” If for no other reason than to perform a ground test of just how the recently enacted drone-facilitated extermination of US citizens sits with various instances of the US judicial system.
