Officers in LAPD manhunt mishap violated policy, says board

Almost a year after the manhunt mishap that led to the shooting of two women in Los Angeles, the civilian oversight board finally declared on Tuesday that the officers involved violated policy.

Eight LAPD officers who were not identified will be subjected to face disciplinary measures that could include retraining, suspensions, and even firings. Police Chief Charlie Beck recommended that the shooting be ruled out of policy. Beck is expected to decide on the corresponding disciplinary measures for the officers.

In February 7 last year, Los Angeles police guarding a house of a targetted LAPD captain were informed that a pick-up truck of the cop-turned-killer Christopher Dorner was in the neighborhood.

At around 5 in the morning, a blue pick-up truck emeged. Officers immediatedly fired a foray of shots at the truck - 103 rounds all in all. Other bullets hit the homes of nearby houses.

The truck did not belong to Dorner.

Police officers later realized that the truck was a different model. Inside were 71-year old Emma Hernandez and 47-year old Margie Carranza. Margie suffered minor injuries while her mother was shot twice in the back. They later agreed to a $4.2-million settlement with the city.

"This was a tragic cascade of circumstances that led to an inaccurate conclusion by the officers," Beck told the New York Times

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
