Remember last year when Christopher Dorner terrorized cops in the Southern California? Well, it seems that a couple of officers mistook pale white David Perdue for African-American Dorner and popped off a couple of shots at him. Well, the district attorney decided that the case won’t be prosecuted;
David Perdue is the surfer who was on his way to catch some morning waves last Feb. 7 when he was stopped by Torrance police on the lookout for Christopher Dorner.
After he was cleared by the first set of officers, a second set of officers drove up the street, rammed Perdue’s vehicle and began shooting at his head. He was not hit.
“It was only the poor marksmanship of Torrance officer Brian McGee that led to Mr. Perdue being alive today,” said Perdue’s attorney Robert Sheahen.
In the report, the district attorney found that because McGee and his partner, Erin Sooper, were “anxious” and in a state of “panic,” their attempt to kill Mr. Perdue was justified, Sheahen said, adding that investigators never contacted Perdue nor his wife for their accounts about what happened.
Torrance officers also shot at and injured two Hispanic women in the same neighborhood. Neither Perdue nor the Hispanic women were driving a vehicle matching the description of Dorner’s vehicle. Not to mention the fact that none were the same skin color, either. It looks to me like the cops were out to shoot people who weren’t Dorner to scare him into surrendering. Or something.
I’m sure that you’ll all be relieved to know that in Southern California, anxious and panicking police officers are protected by the gatekeepers of the justice system. If you can even call it a justice system anymore.
