Some on the left cheering on LA cop killer
Some on the left are finding it easy to support the "manifesto" issued by LA fugitive cop killer Chris Dorner. But there are others who support the man himself and even others who support what he's doing.
And they call the right crazy?
Here are a few tweets:
Is it wrong that I'm rooting for Christopher Dorner? I know the media is portraying him as a nut job but I feel like he's telling the truth.
Best of luck to Chris Dorner, ex-LAPD, anti-cop, killing americas corrupt police officers
If I was you..I would read Christopher Dorner Manifesto...it really tells what we already know bout LAPD!!
A MAN WITH MORALS AND A HERO. A REAL REBEL WITH A CAUSE! THIS MAN IS STANDING UP FOR A CAUSE HE...
The article points out that Americans have a strange love affair with outlaws. Abortion clinic bomber Eric Rudolph was a hero to some on the right. The Symbionese Liberation Army were folk heroes after they kidnapped heiress Patty Hearst and got her to participate in a bank robbery.
But this isn't some romance with a counter-culture law breaker. These people have identified with Dorner's ideology and are cheering him on. It's despicable.
No doubt Dorner is planning "suicide by cop." If he wasn't he would have turned himself in by now. His death will feed more conspiracy theories and elevate him even higher as a hero to the left.
