Crazy to Everyone
but the New York Times

City Journal [NYC, NY], by Heather MacDonald

Original Article

A homicidal maniac blames racism in the Los Angeles Police Department for his killing rampage against cops and civilians and the New York Times responds, “You know, he just may have a point.” On Monday, as fired LAPD cop Christopher Dorner eluded capture for the sixth day after killing a Riverside Police Department officer, the daughter of his departmental defense attorney, and her fiancé, the Times wrapped up three days of observations about racism in the LAPD in response to Dorner’s charge, in a lunatic manifesto, that the department was endemically biased and brutal.

Every bureaucracy has it´s backstabbers and carpers.Police dept.s are no different. Being a street cop in uncivilized neighborhoods sheds a different light on how a certain breed of cat needs to be treated. It´s easy to sit back in an armchair and claim cops acted over the top in someway but when your own personal safety is at risk you want to put the threat down as quickly as possible. Of course this might mean throwing the suspect on the ground while trying to cuff him and maybe get a few shots in along the way. that´s how they relieve the adrenaline that´s pumped up pursuing a hardball criminal.

the other thing that´s frustrating to cops is arresting people and they´re back out on the streets the next day,so they administer their own form of justice.Is it right? probably not but I fully understand it.

Rodney King celebrated getting a job by getting at least drunk and driving a 100 MPH. He seemed to have super human powers at a time PCP was popular.Looking at the tape afterwards,it´s easy to say police brutality but maybe they just had a hard time subduing him. It´s not like he made the best use of the settlement money using it on the same thing,drugs and booze.

I´m going to give the cops the benefit of the doubt 99% of the time because i don´t envy their jobs.

So how does this killer and the NYT view the murder of Asian Americans. Wasn´t his first victim Asian American? Is this racism as well?

This monster that some on the left are celebrating stalked and murdered a young woman and her fiancée because he was mad at the woman´s father who had represented him in a hearing. Downer didn´t know his victims but was so evil that their murders were an appropriate way to react. Sick, sick ,sick and the NYT´s isn´t even embarrassed.

Not disagreeing with #1, but the corruption of the LAPD is legendary. It has been going on since at least the late 1920´s. If you ever get a chance to see the movie Eastwood directed called The Changling, he covers it in a very disturbing fashion. I guess what I am trying to say is that the LAPD is finally reaping what it has been sowing all these decades. They just picked on the wrong cop thats all.

Look at the innocent people these cops fired on by mistake. Three other people were almost killed by police. It´s clear LA police never intended to take him alive.
This case stinks all around. I´m disgusted by Doener and those who think Dorner is a hero, AND disgusted by LAPD. Like it or not we have a dirty case here.

When someone they suspect to be a right-winger (which it rarely ever is) goes on a murder spree, the media immediately questions who is the instigator of the hatred...talk radio, tea party, GOP. If a left-winger does it (which it almost always is) the media tries as hard as possible to understand or sympathize with his grievance!

Could it be possible that superiors in the LAPD instead of forming opinions of Dorner based on race formed negative opinions of him and held him back because he exhibited traits of a psychopathic lunatic even before falling completely over the edge and killing innocents pellmell? Could it just be, NYTs?

Sheila Doucet is not a foodie. She freely admits that cooking is not something she does regularly — or particularly well. But give the Richland Hills woman a can of Spam and all bets are off. (Snip) “Apparently, I’m the best Spam cook in the nation.” The pork-based product, which has developed a cult following, was the featured ingredient in her Philly Dilly Spam Sandwich, which on Wednesday was named the winner of the 2013 Great American Spam Championship.

$100B withdrawal from US Treasury
bills hints at Russian move
New York Post, by Geoff Earle    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/15/2014 8:42:28 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — A record $100 billion in withdrawals of Treasury bills is raising speculation that the Kremlin and Russian oligarchs are yanking their money out of the United States to avoid upcoming sanctions over Ukraine. The massive outflow over the past week came as President Obama and other top US officials repeatedly warned Russia would face a “cost” if it didn’t reverse course in Ukraine. The total amount of foreign-held US Treasury securities dropped to $2.86 trillion — lowest in more than a year. Last year, the most moved out in a week was $32 billion. Analysts said that if the switch was made

AUSTIN, Texas -- The drunken-driving suspect who police say killed two people after he smashed his car through a street barricade at the South By Southwest festival did not use his brakes and even accelerated as he approached crowds, according to an arrest warrant released Friday. Rashad Charjuan Owens was charged with one count of capital murder, though additional charges can be added later. (Snip)According to the arrest warrant, Owens told police that he "got scared" when he saw police lights behind him around 12:30 a.m. Thursday because outstanding warrants meant he could go to prison for five years.

Expert Was Needed to Disable
Malaysia Airlines Jet Systems

If multiple communication systems aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 were manually disabled, as investigators increasingly suspect happened, it would have required detailed knowledge of the long-range Boeing Co. 777´s inner workings. The first loss of the jet´s transponder, which communicates the jet´s position, speed and call sign to air traffic control radar, would require disabling a circuit breaker above and behind an overhead panel. Pilots rarely, if ever, need to access the circuit breakers, which are reserved for maintenance personnel.Pulling one specific circuit breaker, which is labeled, would render inoperative both of the 777´s transponders, according to documents reviewed by

Two years after his whirlwind, presidential campaign ended with a thud, Rick Perry is writing the story of his comeback. And when he strode onstage at the Conservative Political Action Conference this month, he appeared to believe in the narrative. “I am here today to say we don’t have to accept recent history,” Perry bellowed, bringing a still-groggy morning crowd to its feet. “We just have to change the presidency.” For months, Perry -- the three-term Texas governor who walked in late to the prior Republican presidential primary as an instant, if short-lived, front-runner -- has deliberately tried to position

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) laid out a compelling case today that American and NATO involvement in Afghanistan since the 2001 invasion has been a boon for that country’s people. Donald Sampler of the Afghanistan office at USAID told a House hearing Thursday about the substantial improvements to life expectancy, education, and infrastructure. Some of those include: Life expectancy increased from 42 to 62 years old. ? In 2001, 800,000 Afghan children were enrolled in school; none of them were girls.

John Paul Jones, the ‘Father of the American Navy,’ led Catherine the Great’s 18th-century occupiers, before a sex scandal chased him out of the empire. The first time Russia conquered the Crimean Peninsula and fought a war so that its gains would be internationally recognized, it relied, in part, on an American hero. In 1788, John Paul Jones, “the Father of the American Navy” who captained the USS Bonhomme Richard in its famous victory over the HMS Serapis at Flamborough Head, fought the Ottoman Empire on behalf of Catherine the Great—as Kontradmiral Pavel Ivanovich Jones—and helped Russia maintain its control of the

MEDFORD, Mass.— Colleges are paying students to take a year off after high school to travel, volunteer or do internships so that students of all income brackets can benefit from ‘‘gap years.’’ A new program at Tufts University and existing ones at a handful of other schools aim to remove the financial barriers that can keep cash-strapped students from exploring different communities and challenge their comfort zones before jumping right into college. The gap year program starting this fall at Tufts will pay for housing, airfare and even visa fees, which can often add up to $30,000 or more. Although gap years are

President Obama has no business ­experience. For most people, that might incline one to modesty. Not this president. To the contrary, he believes he knows how an auto company should be run, what policies health-insurance companies should offer, the wages, say, a part-time worker in a family restaurant should receive and what banks should pay in bonuses. Now the president has found a new area in which to intervene. Yesterday he directed his Labor Department to make millions of salaried managers eligible for overtime pay. Under existing rules, employers must pay overtime to salaried workers earning less than $455 a week. Though

P erhaps the worst sin of the GOP during the Obama era has been the party´s lack of interest in serious, innovative policy. Thanks to the notion that opposing the White House was enough of an agenda, and the inchoate enthusiasm of the Tea Party, the GOP, it seemed, was great at sound and fury but had no ideas. Anything the GOP did manage to propose was either an old idea from the ´80s, just plain awful, or (most often) both. If this narrative seems familiar, it´s because left-of-center pundits have been hammering these ideas for years. And they were

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups.

Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
