Don't Shoot! Not Dorner!

by Abby Zimet

Fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner is still missing in California despite hundreds of tips, a million dollar reward, newly filed murder charges and widespread havoc caused in large part by an overzealous LAPD police force that has responded with its usual racist finesse by periodically shooting anything that moves, including a Latina mother and daughter and a short white guy, none of whom even vaguely resemble the hefty, black Dorner. Savvy L.A. residents have responded to the chaos with Don't Shoot signs, t-shirts and  memes.

"I don't want to use the word buffoonery but it really is unbridled police lawlessness," said the attorney of one victim of police inattentiveness. "These people need training, and they need restraint."
