Without sounding like I condone what Doyner has done is there any journalist out there willing to take on the LAPD corruption that he is trying to expose. His response almost seems reasonable when everyone is participating in the cover up. I'm sorry but no one is going to these lengths without legitimacy. I have read the manifesto and this man wants truth. He wants his name cleared. He wants the corruption exposed at his expense. He wants the people who harbored any investigation surrounding his accusations legimately investigated. Don't say he has no demands when he does. This case reminds me alot of the movie Law Abiding Citizen. Here is a citizen at all cost on a missions to expose the LAPD corruption even if that means taking lives. Doyner claims to have exhausted his legal options all the way to the supreme court. Is anyone looking into his allegations? Is anyone trying to find his justice? Is anyone trying to clear his name? LAPD took away his life and its easy to say he's handling the situation wrong because its not your life and you have been accused of a crime that cost you your dignity and your name. LAPD has black listed this man from having a future and everyone wants to say its ok. He took his oath of justice to heart and he obviously believed in the system because of his experience with the military but right now he feels this was the only way to be heard and I disagree because every legal option he took was shut down. Lets maybe just maybe validate what he saying about the system and the blue line instead of everyone acting like it doesn't exist.
I don't think Doyner is delusional I think everyone around him isby implying corruption doesn't exist. No one is motivating this man to turn himself in when they can't validate police corruption exist. He's not crazy but it sure looks like everyone else is. I've never had and issue with police but I know corruption exist. When they say the police did a thorough investigation into his allegations against a fellow officer thats what they want you to think. But look into the board that dismissed the case. Was is really a conflict of interest by who was represented? Were they former trainers and partners of the accused? Come on now we can't all be this stupid to believe this man has gone to these lengths without any validation. I have yet to here from anyone who has met or personally known this man to say anything but positive feedback. He didn't mysteriously get relieved of his Navy duties. LAPD has black balled this man's future. What does he have to do for anyone to see this?
Sadly we in America are cursed. Lies or distorting the truth has become our national seal of approval. We let George Bush Sr & Jr get away with lies did we not?
Can we be honest please?
Much of the byproduct of wars is that soldiers learn to love their guns, as if, they were their best friend. In fact, many Marines are told their weapons are their best friend – especially in battle – because it is their friend who will protect them.
When soldiers love their guns as "friends," they do not want to return home without it because like a police officer with no gun, they feel naked and vulnerable.
such an emotional attachment may be necessary in wars to protect themselves, and others, but how easily can that attachment be easily broken when war is over? Love affairs with objects are not unheard of; children form those attachments in childhood with toys. Carrying those feelings into adulthood is not rare at all, since many men willingly admit they love their cars and trucks, etc.
Not recognizing that the dog is no longer man's best friend, nor is his wife, if he has one, is not to recognize the full scope of the human brain as it develops those attachments, and how they are likely to cripple them, or society without greater effort to identify those PTSD problems.
I hope they found him and he gets what he deserves!
