Police Shoot 71-Year Old Woman, Mistaking Her Truck for Alleged Cop Killer During Manhunt

police2211Two women were shot in questionable circumstances after the truck they were driving appeared to be similar to the vehicle driven by a former police officer who is now on the run.  One of the women was shot in the hand and the other was shot in the back.   The pickup truck they were driving was riddled with bullets as police officers thought the car was being driven by Christopher Dorner, a former LAPD officer who has been on the run from police.

The officer, threatened “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against other officers whom he felt had wronged him.   After writing a manifesto on the Internet, the man is suspected of shooting three police officers, one of whom is now dead.  

Some are concerned about the shooting of the two women, since it appears that the officers may not have even tried to make a peaceful arrest and weren’t necessarily in fear for their lives. The women were also unarmed.   As a result of the shooting, a 71-year old woman is in intensive care at a Los Angeles hospital and is clinging to her life.

Emma Hernandez was delivering papers for the Los Angeles Times with her daughter, Margie Carranza in Torrance when the shooting took place.   Hernandez is in stable condition. 

Attorney Glen T. Jonas says that the shooting is problematic and should be cause for concern: 

“The problem with the situation is it looked like the police had the goal of administering street justice and in so doing, didn’t take the time to notice that these two older, small Latina women don’t look like a large black man,” Jonas said.

Dorner is a 6-foot, 270 pound black man, which reduces the chances that officers thought that either woman looked like him before they started to fire their weapons.   The car was also not the same color or model as Dorner’s.

“We trust that the LAPD will step up and do the right thing and acknowledge that what they did was unacceptable and we’ll deal with it,” Jonas said.

LAPD is already admitting that the shooting was the result of a terrible mistake. 

“Tragically, we believe this is a case of mistaken identity,” Charlie Beck, chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, told the media.

  1. I used to lives in England during the fight of Cyprus for independence. It is devided between greece and turkey. The greek cypriot leader George Grevas told the british, who were indiscrinately killing greek cyriots. Every time you kill a greek like that, we will kill a british solder, and they stopped, plus Cyprus is independent today. You see, the greeks spoke the language of the british, so they understood. You cannot speak to a man in a foreign language, you must speak the language he understands.

  2. I FEEL IT IS PAST TIME FOR THIS (THE LAPD’S) AGENCIES LAW ENFORCEMENT POWERS TO BE TAKEN AWAY, UNTIL THE CLOUD OF ALLEGATIONS CAN BE CLEARED. I DON’T FEEL IT WILL SERVE THE PEOPLE OF THE LA COMMUNITIES WELL TO ALLOW THEM TO CONTINUE TO RUN THE INVESTIGATION AS TO WHAT HAS TAKEN PLACE THERE. THEIR SHOOTING OF TWO INNOCENT WOMEN ONLY DEMONSTRATES THE URGENCY WITH WHICH THIS NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE

  4. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT ITS ABOUT TIME FOR THE FEDS OR SOME GOVERNMENT AGENCY TO TAKE OVER THIS FAILURE IN THE LAPD TO ADMINISTER FARE, SAFE AND JUST LAW ENFORCEMENT TO THE PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES IN LA. OBVIOUSLY; THE PUBLIC WILL NOT BE SERVED WELL BY AN IN HOUSE INVESTIGATION OF THE GOINGS ON OF THIS NOW FAILED AGENCY.

  6. “Mistaken identity” my ass How exactly is it possible that two frail (one elderly, latino females would be mistaken for a 6 foot 270 lb Black man.. The model and make as well as color of the truck was not even similar….and now a bounty of $1 million dollars has been put on Christopher Dorner’s head. Has this world gone mad? The LAPD just made this guys case for him. They just proved exactly what he has been saying….that they are inept, racist and simply unprofessional thugs with guns..this is the problem with America…

  7. How could the police officers shoot these poor ladies without identifying who their shooting at??? They don’t need to be police officers in my opinion and these ladies deserve justice. Dorner was wrong to take life in cold blood and should be prosecuted under the law,along with the officers who shoot the ladies,I hope to hear Dorner story though. I feel it a shame that race relations are no better than this.We are all Americans and all this does is weaken our country………………

  8. the cops that did this better get fired with no pay! i guess we now know what they’ve been planning for Dorner: (shoot first) even if Dorner wants to surrender, how can he if these devils are going to shoot him down as soon as they see him or think they see him?

  9. “””The problem with the situation is it looked like the police had the goal of administering street justice and in so doing, didn’t take the time to notice that these two older, small Latina women don’t look like a large black man,” Jonas said”””.

    so is jonas saying it would’ve been okay if the cops had shot a black man instead?

  10. “The problem with the situation is it looked like the police had the goal of administering street justice and in so doing, didn’t take the time to notice that these two older, small Latina women don’t look like a large black man,”

    so is she saying it would have been okay if the cops would have shot a big black man instead?!

  11. CAN YOU IMAGINE IF THEIR WAS HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND CHRIS DORMERS.
    CAN YOU IMAGINE IF THEIR WAS A BLACK FBI AGENT ,OR A BLACK
    PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR THAT PULLED UP ALL OF THE FEDERAL AND STATE
    JUDGES,PROSECUTORS,POLICE CHIEFS ADDRESSES IN THE NATION,AND EVERY TIME ONE DISSCRIMINATE,THEY GOT DEALT WITH IN A FUNNY WAY.WHAT IF
    THIS HAPPENS,WHERE WOULD WE STAND AS AFRICAN AMERICANS ?. WOULD
    WHITES BE SCARED TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST BLACKS ?.OR WOULD THIS
    TURN INTO A RACE WAR ?. I HOPE NONE OF THIS HAPPENS,BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE RATIONAL JUSTICE IN ALL FORMS OF U.S. GOVERNMENT,INSTEAD OF
    STREET JUSTICE.

  12. wow…i guess he’s actually an American terrorists like Lupe states in his music..considering tthe information being reported..guess he’ll be tracked down and treated like Libya’s Gaddafi or Saddam Hussein..Literally hunted down and killed w/no plans of a trial..americas trend of “innocent until proven guilty”–sorry meant to say “”guilty until proven innocent or the old wild wild west doctrine–Wanted dead or alive…

  13. This is far from a “Mistaken Identity”. Don’t use it to set them free. Those shooters are criminals. They’re trying to cover-up some evil they did and they should be persecuted for killing innocent people. This is pure murder.
    They didn’t attempt to identify who those women were. They should have run their car plate number to know who they were, but they didn’t do it.

  14. your right chickens have come home to roost and we all should start paying attention and making noise …..we are under attack “black People” whites have tainted us all over the world and everyone hates blacks and they dont know why…i travel a lot and blacks all over are catching hell…LAPD I Pray will catch hell
    The blacks being harassed killed and beaten by latin gangs in los angeles has been going on for about 10yrs they get away with it because the lapd is about 40% hispanic…mostly mexican…why dont the government speak on this…now we are going to make all of these people citizens…most are of criminal element…LAPD IS JUST A LARGE GANG JUST LIKE THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT…

  15. The Hunters are now being captured by the game and the chickens have come home to roost. We will see more of this and other types of violence as this system collapes before our own eyes. None of us are SAFE.

  16. The Hunters are now being captured by the game and the chickens have come home to roost. We will see more of this and other types of violence as this system collapes before our own eyes. None of us are SAFE.

  17. No decorated Naval Officer snaps just because he was fired. Dorner was snitching on the most corrupt police department on the planet, thats why he was fired. He named names and victims of the police. LAPD has over a century of brutal force on its minority citizens. A stronger fraternal order than the masons and the ability to kill people and get away with it. These corrupt cops put a bounty on him. And now he’s turned the tables and put them as the prey.

  18. I would hope that there is a black fraternal police organization in Los Angeles. If so, I hope there is a defense fund being organized for this cop. I usually have absolutely no sympathy for the police, but in this case I hope he lives to tell his story.

  19. We heard the story, now what will happen to these officers for their mistaken identity? Will they be purposely fired?

  20. Maybe, just maybe, this is the kind of behavior by the LAPD, that Mr. Doner was trying to reveal.
    To shoot innocent people….leaves much to be desired in the mindset of Men, who are suppose
    to Serve and Protect….wonder how this all will work out….and when if ever will we find a way to a Beloved Community, hopefully sometime real soon……where our Families, Children and those yet unborn will live in a Beloved Community!

  21. He is trained to kill by two different organizations Police and U.S. Service. If he was still on the force his target would be Black People, but do to this his target is of the police force. How many Black people have he beat the S–t out of in his long time on the force. I bet there are Brothers and Sisters who can remember him in past encounter beating the s–t out of them. Just because they are after him makes no difference. The Police is the Police in uniform or on the run, have a nice hunt,on both sides.

    • Girl on Fire and Letting it Burn Baby Burn Baby

      I think this is exactly what Mr. Donner is going on about. Snapped because they seem to be invincible and is tired of it. That’s what you call a strong man.

  22. Christ Minister We are in atttendance with you. We appreciate your work. Continue to thrive in LOVE, LIFE, TRUTH, PEACE, HOPE, FAITH, KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM,UNDERSTANDING, MERCY AND GRACE. Remember, shine like the sunshine even on rainy days.

  23. This is beginning to really look like a full blown coverup…Are they so afraid of the truth being told that they are so trigger happy about seeing this man dead that they are attempted murder of innocent people? I counted over 20 bullet holes. This is attempted murder!

  24. Should that innocent woman die, The LAPD will have Hell to pay…How much of this deadly racist BS does we as people of color have to take and continue to do nothing……Those two stupid cops should be put to rest.

  25. The fact that Dorner says he dont mind dying, says a lot. Because he told on another officer mistreating someone, they fired this man. Wow. I believe they are going after him too because he knows something! It must be good and juicy, to shoot at a vehicle that just looks like the one he drove!! Their iq is in question, to think that only one wehicle exist like that!!!

  26. Look at that truck!.. Them LAPPL just pulled up and opened fired.. I hope the women are able to tell there story of what went down..

    It is clear them LAPPL are reunning scared and want Chris Dead, casue a Dead man tells no tails!.. RUN CHRIS RUN!!.. I hope you can get some of your targets in your Manifesto!!!..
    If you want the Killings to stop!

    T.E. need to get her A$$ on the TV confess and Apologize! She has the power to stop this all.. Now get your Butt on TV and handle your business you Liar!!!!!!!

  27. Not condoning what Mr. Doner is doing or has done but I can equate with how feels. MOS DEF! When you lose your main source of surviving, benefits, dignity independence, much goes through the mind! And its not good!

  28. I am not condoning Mr.Dorner actions, but I can equate with how he feels. I too know what its like
    For whitey to use poor excuses and LIES to remove one from their long years of career and NO one doing anything about it. To build yourself and raise a family for years and then have it all taken from under you when it is now time to enjoy and relax a little HURTS LIKE HELL! No I didn’t go out kill anybody but thoughts of doing harm do enter your mind. The system says be independent, pull yourself up by the boot straps, etc. etc. and when you do to have it all pulled from under you and then writing to your leaders, Presidents administration, I mean come on what does that do? NOT A DAMN THING! So how do you ever progress in this country? HOW? I mean at 53 I have to put myself through college IN HOPES OF HAVING A BETTER FUTURE ALL OVER AGAIN? A 53????? Oh well, if no one hires me in 2016-17 I don’t want threats coming from Higher Education to repay for loans. I am telling you now. IF there are no jobs in the future – guess what? There will be more debt with my student loans going n default. So tell me…what do you? Live in self-pity, pick yourself up all over again by the bootstraps after 50 all due to a white supremist having her way and personnel working with her to rid of me of 16 years of my career, go out and commit murder suicides, I mean what would you do? Can anybody come up with a reasonable sensible answer that WORKS??? I mean going through the channels with a damn union these days is a headache and waste of time. They do not care either. so WHAT DO YOU DO?

  29. I am willing to bet that the Chief of Police told every LAPD cop to shoot at any Truck similar to his, because he has so much dirt on the dept that they all would go down for years and years. How else are you going to explain what happened.

    This man was more than likely pushed to the point of a breaking point. But for some reason I do not see him as this deranged psychotic murderer. I see him as someone who knows that in the end, he wil be murdered or sent straight to prison to die. But before that happens, he is going to rid the world of a few of satan’s best. And who can frown at that.

    • I agree with your general assessment of the overall situation. Officer Donor will not be taken alive, even if he tries to turn himself in. His actions have caused the lives of innocent people to be put in jeopardy, especially in the Los Angeles area. What is particularly disturbing is the attitude of LAPD about the shooting of these women. The Chief of Police said “Tragically, we believe this is a case of mistaken identity,” According to the article every SUV or Pickups with camper shells the police encounter is could be mistakenly riddled with gun fire.

  30. These actions by LAPD kinda substantiates the suspect’s cries of racism and disparity of treatment…

  31. This police department has a history of discrimination, corruption, for decades, they should be held accountable, but they wont. They will get a pat on the bavk.

  32. They screwed the wrong dude this time. They are scared shitless. They know this dude has dirt on them plus they screwed him out of a job. If you read his manifesto you will see he has no beef with any body but the LAPD cops who set him up. He listed them by name.He is highly intelligent & well trained. I have a feeling he will probably get to some more of them before it’s over.

  33. daggone shame .. that coulda been me or u or ur mother or sister .. daggone shame .. pray for the ladies !

  34. First, ask that God be with both of the women that were shot. Help them to heal physically and emotionally.
    Second, pray that no one else is “tragically” “mistaken” for the Dorner, the man being hunted for. I do mean hunted, because when they find him the are going to kill him.

  35. Crystal Washington

    They are showing themselves to be exactly who he say they are! And who alot of us already know who they are.

  36. I do not condon murder or violence. But Having had similiar experiences with bureauracy, and agencies who simply will not listen to reason or try and stand in the shoes of a black man/woman one can very easily be pushed over the edge and seek retaliation. Many people do wrongly participate and tell untruths on another simply because they do not like an individual. Take it from me who is fighting the City of Colton Ca. I in no way will ever respond as the police officer had but I plainly see his viewpoint. With me the pen is mightier than the sword.

  37. This was strange. Maybe it was collective punishment?

  38. This was strange. Maybe it was collective punishment?

  39. The police are used to shooting unarmed citizens. (See stolenlives.org). Now they are faced with a US military-trained real life Django. They are scared as hell.

  40. God is not of the “WORLD” he came and left us his peace to remind us that Love is the answer.

    Satan runs this B.tch and he is running strong…..

    Satan runs this B.tch and he is running strong…..

  43. It is a shame that they would just shoot at a vehicle and not knowing who they were shooting at. Wow!

  44. It is a shame that they would just shoot at a vehicle and not knowing who they were shooting at. Wow!
