Yesterday on the show, we gave an update on the whole Christopher Dorner situation.
For those who don’t know the story, early this month, there was a series of shootings that occurred in California where the victims were law officers, their families, or civilians misidentified as the suspect.
Dorner was named as a suspect and was wanted in connection to these shootings that occurred that killed four people and wounded three others.
Another big part of the story is when Dorner allegedly posted a manifesto on Facebook which cited being fired from the LAPD in 2008 for reporting fellow police officer for using excessive force.
Dorner was terminated for filing a report concerning Teresa Evans, (now a sergeant), for excessive force, which the police claim is false. Dorner accused Officer Evans of kicking suspect Christopher Gettler in the face while he was handcuffed and lying on the ground. No action was taken against Officer Evans.

It has still not been confirmed, but there are reports of a charred body that was found inside the burning building they think he had been staying in for the last few days.
I just think that it's time that we as Americans demand that people in high stress jobs like the military and police force, provide enough recourses to help those folks cope with whatever is going on in their lives.
These are not normal jobs yet we expect them to act like the rest of us. I'm sorry, but people who have a 9 to 5 gig, bagging groceries, building houses, or sitting behind a computer all day do not have it near as badly as those in the military or police force. We have to stop misjudging their stressful work environments.
