I agree. The tax payers could save millions on the money wasted on employing 75% of the LAPD, as well as the money they waste on unnecessary equip, disability claims, fuel, paid vaca, attorney fees when they need to be defended for illegal actions and procedures, you name it.
We could also save billions in the way of getting rid of DHS and TSA. We could also save millions in the way of stopping unnecessary "check points" for Americans, by border patrol,......nowhere near the border and actually have these people patrolling the border. We could also save trillions and many lives by not allowing unnecessary wars in the Middle East, so companies like Haliburton can secure contracts for supplying our troops with diseased water, charging $100 p/bag to wash their laundry, charge $45 for a 6 pk of coke, their employees lease $40k vehicles for $7k p/mo and vaca at world class hotels while our troops wait in line for grub for an hour,.....while fighting a war they never should have been sent to. All billed to the fed gov (the tax payer).
Let's not get started on wasted money. The prison system is another scam/money maker, but it's pretty low on the list of wasted tax payer money.
The point is, regardless of how guilty Dorner was, the local law enforcement is not the judge, jury and executioner and they don't have the right to open fire on every vehicle that fails to signal a right hand turn, just because they're on a "manhunt" and "a little stressed out".
BTW, the fed tax on our income is illegal. We might wanna start thinking about that.
