BJ'S BLOG 02/14/13 "Christopher Dorner"

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.

You can read the full manifesto here: (Contents may be disturbing)
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.

To BJ Shea and the rest of KISW, you have always been supportive of the men and women who choose to place themselves in harms way for the benefit of others, and for that I thank you. From the cowardly ambush of my coworkers at the Forza in 2009, to the tragedy that unfolded in California. Some ignorant people glorify the actions of these cowards, but you give a voice to the quiet professionals who choose to keep doing good in the face of hatred and ignorance. Keep on rocking Seattle!

Theres is no money in helping military or police.
Mr Shea You have done a great job in highlighting this but most civ could careless. Our lawmaker use us as props for votes. When we ask for the small scraps to help us the redtape and back log is designed to make us quit. People don't care. Till all hell breaks loose.

Dorner Music Video Stirs Controversy with L A Cops
Some cops in the LAPD have expressed displeasure at the release of a new music video they say celebrates the memory of Chris Dorner. The writer, Dan Draney, disagrees, saying the intent of "The Ballad of Chris Dorner's Tragic End" was to memorialize the events in song, in a way that does not celebrate Dorner, but records for posterity an event in song. "It's no different than a song like "Tom Dooley" that memorializes the execution of a rapist and murderer." Whether his ballad succeeds may be in the ear of the beholder. You can judge for yourself at:
