Police shot wrong Dorner truck? Too bad they didn't use drones!

I just googled the story about the cops shooting up the wrong truck of Dorner's. I noticed that not too many national outlets seem to be picking it up. got me thinking...

What if instead of shooting up the truck they had the technology to just bomb from a drone? I mean, they shot without warning, didn't they? Shoot first, ask questions later? If that is the case, what would the big deal be in dropping a bomb from a drone...same principle, right?

Oh, and then I thought to myself. What would someone do if cops just started firing on him or her without warning, without cause since it was all a mistake? Would that person be justified to return fire, to defend himself against the cops, even if they are in authority?

I am thinking these things because it all appears to me that lower levels of govt are going to take their cue from higher levels...if the feds can kill an American citizen without warning, without a court hearing, why not state governments or local governments?

It should also be a huge warning to us all...whether it be Dorner or now these idiots who shot these women, that cops aren't a whole lot more trustworthy than most other average citizens.

Top to bottom, this whole story is a mess, but proves something!

First off, it should prove to those that cops and anyone else isn't anymore trustworthy that average citizens. Dorner and others are just as likely to snap and go after people as anyone else.

Second, these buffoons who shot up this truck prove that we should have the right to protect ourselves. But the idea that we shoot and kill first and clean up later is going to have not just international, but national and local ramifications.

Third, imagine the world that we are coming to...and if you stop for just a second, this is not some far-fetched Orwellian scheme. We have the technology and proof of what drones can do. We know that everything sold is starting to be laced with chips...seems the next logical step is take that chip info and link it to the drones and WALLA...nice "Clean" strike.

Of course, I can already hear most out there (Dem and Rep)..."Oh, but if you don't do anything wrong, you have nothing to fear." Really? What if the ONLY gun deal that gets done is something along the lines of more background checks...no ban at this time on "assault weapons." So...you save up and buy one soon with the background check. There now is record of you buying it...then down the road, they pass the ban and forbid you even owning it. You refuse to give up the gun but have done nothing wrong...you don't think you are already viewed as armed and dangerous? BAM! Drone killed!

Correction: Seven scared LAPD "drones" went awry & "blindly"

like the flying versions...started shooting.

Good

point.
