Suspected cop killer Christopher Dorner is believed to have been killed in Tuesday’s dramatic standoff with police that ended in flames at a cabin in Big Bear, Calif. However, there are still a number of questions left to answer, including how a murderer earned a fan base.
During a panel discussion on CNN Wednesday, Marc Lamont Hill, host of HuffPost Live and associate professor at Columbia University, said he understands why people were rooting for Dorner. He also made some shocking remarks about his murderous rampage.
“This has been an important conversation that we’ve had about police brutality, about police corruption, about state violence,” Hill said.
“As far as Dorner himself goes, he’s been like a real life superhero to many people,” he added. “Don’t get me wrong, what he did was awful, killing innocent people was bad, but when you read his manifesto, when you read the message that he left, he wasn’t entirely crazy.”
Dorner’s supporters were rooting for him because they wanted to see him get vengeance against the system that wronged him, according to Hill.“It’s almost like watching ‘Django Unchained’ in real life,” Hill explained. “It’s kind of exciting.”
Here’s how “exciting” it was. Dorner killed two cops and two other innocent people during his shooting spree. Among the victims were Monica Quan, a 28-year-old assistant coach at Cal State Fullerton, 27-year-old USC safety officer Keith Lawrence, who was also Quan’s fiancé, Riverside police officer Michael Crain, 34, and a San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy.
Dorner’s killing rampage probably wasn’t very “exciting” to the victims and their families.
Hill argued that Dorner exposed police brutality and corruption within the LAPD and several of the panelists agreed that his rampage should serve as a catalyst for the country to have that conversation.
Another panelist said “the narrative of Christopher Dorner” resembles a Denzel Washington movie, in which “he was “wronged and stands up for himself and goes out in a blaze of glory. It’s hard for it not to turn into a movie.”
“Exactly,” Hill agreed. Source
Oh where to start…..first of all Dorner, thankfully is dead game over. Secondly “Don’t get me wrong, what he did was awful, killing innocent people was bad, but when you read his manifesto, when you read the message that he left, he wasn’t entirely crazy.” Dr. Hill you are correct he wasn’t entirely crazy which makes him that much more of a monster. There was nothing exciting about the man hunt it was laden with anxiety over who else this monster Dorner was going to kill, how many more families was he going to shatter? Thirdly Dorner was no superhero; he was a villain of the worst kind willing to kill anybody he decided needed to die with zero compassion nor sympathy. Like a rabid dog he should have been put down, this was no Denzel Washington movie, this was one evil bastard taking out his failure on the innocent.
However, Charles Dorner did leave us with a gift; we get a true view of what twisted people like Dr. Hill are. Anybody who thought Dorner was justified, heroic, or even misunderstood has a skewed grasp of reality. Because of him there are now fatherless children, sons and daughters lost and hopefully a new resident in hell. People like Dr. Hill are also part of the trouble with this nation progressivism is rotting the moral core of this nation and filling the young minds of our children with the filth that erodes the very values that has made America Strong.
In the end like most of these monsters, Charles Dorner took the cowards exit.
