Christopher Dorner Manhunt Makes Southern California Police Pilots Behave

Visual trickery
Numerous Southern California airborne law-enforcement pilots routinely fly low and loud over residential communities in asinine displays of power on par in maturity with uneducated punks who roll down their car windows and blare obnoxious music at stoplights.

But not for the past three nights.

Police pilots are flying high and out of sight for now as a tactic in the manhunt to capture ex-Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Dorner, who is the suspect in the recent murder of three people and the author of a chilling manifesto declaring war on dirty cops.

The cops don't want Dorner to know where they are hovering in the skies in hopes of pouncing if he makes a bumbling move. 

For the cops, the high elevation is obviously wise. 

They can't be seen or heard above certain altitudes while they employ powerful surveillance equipment to closely monitor ground activities.

But will the visual trickery of dozens of helicopters and planes work on Dorner, who so far has outsmarted thousands and thousands of officers hunting him?

I want to fly helicopters, too!

THAT PHRASE SAYS IT ALL!  - COPS ARE BULLIES BUT THEY ARREST YOU FOR THE SAME THINGS.

Right... & I suppose that Barret .50cal has absolutely nothing to do with it. Even the MSM lies dont hold up.

It was a low flying Orange County helicopter that the law enforcement leadership of yesteryear used to catch my attention. I've never seen a helicopter fly that low since. 

And the second part of my life began.

@18usc241  I overheard two undercovers at Killarney's planning their day's surveillance on you. A cop with a beard still looks like a cop. Your observations are having an effect, good job. So they're wising up, and you'll have to keep your eyes peeled. They said that they are mixing in two new vehicle types that they picked from the impound yard: a white Nissan Altima and a silver Honda Accord. So now you have three types of cars to watch out for assuming that they still have the green Camry. They also put in a request for a small drone but the SWAT guys don't want to let them go. Also, and you didn't hear this from me, you might want to think about using throwaway phones.

@JGlanton @18usc241  Hey, usc (unbelievably screwy crazy?), those raccoons  you've noticed, watching you from storm-drain openings as you go by ... cops in masks!

"80 PERCENT OF ALL COPS ARE CRIMINALS AND VIOLATE THE LAWS WHILE THEY ARE ON DUTY AND THEY'RE BEING PAID TO DO SO AND BE SO". BULLIES AND THEN THEY BUST YOU FOR BEING A BULLY.

@JackGrimshaw @JGlanton I long ago discovered the futility of reasoning with sociopaths. But hey, I have a few spare minutes. This will be fun. 

Question: What does it say about you as a human being that you believe someone is crazy and then go about the business of mocking the person via the internet? 

Hint: there is only one correct answer
