Innocent people shot by police while tracking Dorner = 2.
Innocent people shot by citizens while tracking Dorner = 0.
I think the part about all this that scares me most is that the part that scares you most is that ordinary people have firearms... and not that the US government is using state-of-the-art military equipment to search and destroy an American citizen.
Do you think the authorities are sending a mixed message by putting a 1 million dollar bounty on Dorner in one breath and then telling people not to intervene with weaponry in the next?
