About Christopher Dorner’s Firing From the LAPD: It Never Was Complicated
The facts about former LAPD officer, Christopher Dorner’s, termination as they’ve been reported through various sources, is a classic illustration of the way racism (white supremacy) works.
Already we’ve been told both that Dorner was stripped of his badge in 2009 and that his badge was found in San Diego on Febrary 7, 2013. So, in this piece, I am assuming that this situation isn’t some set-up or drama orchestrated by white folks — who are known to execute massive frauds.
In this piece, I am also not addressing the murders that Dorner is accused of recently committing in the southern California region except to say the following: 1) It is incorrect to harm any person that is not white who poses no imminent danger to the physical safety of anyone else who is not white or to major property owned by persons who are not white, and; 2) I am grateful to the Creator that neither I nor anyone whom I hold dear has ever reached the desperate state that Mr. Dorner would’ve had to have been in order to seek to end one’s own existence or that of another.
White reporters and white editors of media with the largest audience across the nation are cooperating with white persons who are officials in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) by presenting the story of Christopher Dorner’s firing from the LAPD in 2009 as if it’s “complicated.” Racists (white supremacists) will always try to make things seem complicated whenever black people are close to clearly understanding anything about racism (white supremacy). This is not complicated. As said in that media release (“Manifesto”), it’s “plain as day.”
In order to make a determination that Christopher Dorner should be fired from the LAPD, its Board of Rights (BOR) was only required to determine that it was “more likely than not” that Dorner lied when he said that his white female partner, Teresa Evans, kicked white male suspect, Christopher Gettler, in an excessive use of force.
The state courts held a similar but lesser standard. The courts had to decide whether the Board of Rights (BOR) REASONABLY BELIEVED that Dorner was more likely to have lied than not.
Contrary to the findings of the BOR and the California trial and appellate courts, the testimony of neither the arrestee, Christopher Gettler, nor his father, Richard Gettler, is made less significant for any of the reasons the BOR cites. That testimony was that the female arresting officer kicked Gettler in the chin and the chest and that he told his father that he had been kicked by the female arresting officer who could have only been Evans. Simple.
It is irrelevant that Gettler suffers from mental illness.
It is immaterial that Gettler got Evans’ hair color wrong one of the two times he made a statement about it.
Anyone might have a condition that makes them more prone to be confused or forgetful about something. But, if such a person makes a statement that independently matches another person’s account, it is a practical certainty that the statement is true.
It is also irrelevant in this fact set whether, at the time of his report to his sergeant of the excessive use of force by Evans, that Dorner believed he was about to get an unsatisfactory performance review from Evans. This is the claim of Evans but one that has not been reported to have been documented anywhere. It matters not whether Evans was attempting to fabricate an unsubstantiated record of poor work performance by Dorner or whether Dorner actually was performing unsatisfactorily. It is immaterial because it is a statistical improbability that amounts to a practical impossibility that Gettler and Dorner would give independent accounts of Gettler being kicked by the female arresting officer unless Evans, in fact, kicked him. Dorner was not fired for poor performance. He was fired for lying about his report of Evans using excessive force. Simple.
It is clearly not more likely that Dorner lied than that he didn’t. It is, therefore, ridiculous to conclude, as the courts did, that the Board of Rights officials reasonably believed that Dorner lied. Yet, the system of racism (white supremacy) is as designed to produce such judicial and quasi-judicial outcomes as it is designed to produce resistance to them. As counter-racism science originator Neely Fuller Jr. wrote, “The seeds of the destruction of Racism (White Supremacy) are implanted in the existence of Racism itself.”
What does matter is that Los Angeles Port Police officer, Sgt. Hernandez, who is likely a white person that claimed to witness the entire arrest, lied about telling Dorner to fix his tie when Dorner wasn’t wearing one. I suspect that this was a code for the lynch rope that he and others were conspiring to metaphorically tie around Dorner’s neck. There is no other reason that I can think of for the man to include such an obviously false and extraneous piece of data. Malicious, coded language is an ever-present part of the practice of racism.
Fresh out of the police academy in 2006, Dorner reported officers (who have Hispanic names but are arguably white) for using the word “nigger.” From that moment on, he was on the clock kept by the terrorist collective of white persons as a target of even greater mistreatment than he would normally receive as a black person. I’m sure with Mr. Dorner’s confusion about the system of racism (white supremacy), he had no clue that white folks were laying in wait for him with special plans for harm. This confusion was, necessarily, infused daily with his intimate interactions with white folks whom he “dated” and called his “friends.”
If Mr. Dorner is still breathing, he surely sees now that this entire planet is a prison run by white supremacists. Whether they smiled at him, cried with him, drank beer with him, swore an oath to justice, or whispered sweet and absolute nothings in his ear, white folks meant him harm. Heck, I wonder if he’s heard the latest about Richard Gettler? The elder Gettler says he told Dorner that filing the report about his son being kicked by Evans was making “too big a deal” out of it. Best wishes to Mr. Dorner on the other side. Simple but hard.
Doesn’t get any simpler or any harder.
