What is the "Blue Wall of Silence"?
The unspoken code amongst law enforcement officials that prevents disclosure of abuse. Tactics used to enforce the Blue Wall of Silence are threats, intimidation, mocking, humiliation and outright termination of careers.
How did the Blue Wall of Silence lead to Chris Dorner's current mental state of rage?
By doing the correct thing and reporting the abuse of LAPD Officer Teresa "Chupacabra" Evans former LAPD Officer Christorpher Dorner placed his career at risk. He then experienced a head long collision with the Blue Wall of Silence, was labeled a liar and then fired. He learned through these events that behaving with ethics and compassion by speaking out against the abuse of a mentally ill man by his fellow officer Teresa Evans would lead to his own termination from the force. When humans act in an ethical manner and are then punished by those in authority for acting correctly this could inspire rage and lead to unclear thinking.
Who was Kelly Thomas and how does this relate to Dorner?
Kelly Thomas was a homeless man with schizophrenia who was beaten to death by four police officers in Fullerton, Orange County, CA. It is clear to people with experience in the mental health system that four grown men could effectively restrain a mentally unstable individual without causing them any physical harm. If needed Kelly Thomas could have been restrained and taken in for a psychiatric interview at a regional hospital. If this correct procedure were followed Kelly Thomas would remain living today. If Chris Dorner were present during the beating of Kelly Thomas, would he not have tried to prevent this tragedy fro occuring. The problem in OC was that the four officers who beat Kelly Thomas to death were lacking a "Jiminy Cricket" angel on their shoulder voice of reason like Chris Dorner to stop their brutal aggression towards Kelly Thomas. Maybe once there was someone like Dorner on the Fullerton police force who also collided with the Blue Wall of Silence and was terminated.
background on Kelly Thomas;
"Being involved in the alternative media, I have watched and discussed endless videos involving police brutality. There have been many cases where people have lost their lives due to the beating they sustained from a “peace officer,” with some cases being blatant, cold blooded murder as in the case of Kelly Thomas.
Yet, despite my desensitization, I did not react the way I’d been conditioned to when seeing Mr. Thomas beaten to a pulp.
This really puzzled me for a few days and then it became clear that I should be asking, where has all the compassion gone? This is a question that a lot of people have been asking with increasing frequency.
In a time of economic uncertainty, endless wars, social fragmentation, dummy drugs (Ritalin, Zoloft etc.) and so on, compassion is needed in great abundance.
Yet we are like a snake eating its tail and getting really close to the head. In the case of Kelly Thomas, can you imagine the amount of hatred and disdain that Officer Manuel Ramos and Cpl. Jay Patrick Cicinelli had for Mr. Thomas to just unleash on him in a way that resulted in his death a mere 5 days later?
I must be fair though; there were four other officers involved.
If Mr. Thomas was guilty of anything it was having mail he shouldn’t have had. What would possess Officer Ramos to clench his fist and say, “You see my fists? They’re getting ready to f— you up”?
Mr. Thomas replied to this threat by saying, “Start punching dude.” I think I may have said the same thing or at least some variation of it.
There seems to be an obvious anger issue with Ramos. As Mr. Thomas starts to walk away after being threatened he is first hit by Cpl. Cicinelli.
Why? I can only assume that he was tired of being threatened and treated like a child. Put your hands here! Put your feet straight out! Did his non-compliance with those orders really warrant the actions that followed?
I would like to believe that everyone reading this would unanimously agree that there is no way Mr. Thomas deserved what he received at the hands of these “peace officers.”
Why so confrontational, Ramos and Cicinelli? It’s very clear that Mr. Thomas was not in any way a threat to the two savages.
The surveillance camera footage and accompanying audio clearly shows this.
I know that a lot of stories get put out there that show brutality but just from one side. This makes it difficult at times to really know if the officers were provoked or not.
This is not even close to being case with Mr. Thomas. As hard as it is to view, I encourage everyone to watch this video.
The reason being is that it must be crystal clear in your mind that this is, in fact, happening all over the world, everyday. Yes, everyday.
The media, even local media, will not cover or report every case of police brutality. There’s a good reason for this.
The police are, as I have been told by a sheriff, a “brotherhood.” They do not rat out their own.
Editor’s note: this is also known as “the Blue Wall” or “the Blue Wall of Silence” referring to the typical color of police uniforms and the colloquial term for police, “the boys in blue.”
We know this to be fact due to cases like the Bogota, New Jersey police officer Regina Tasca who in fact was trying to stop the beating of an emotionally disturbed man and now could lose her job over it.
Lose your job for trying to stop the unnecessary beating of another person? That is crazy in any job, but to have that job be a “peace officer?” Of course this is just one example amongst a long list of similar cases." http://endthelie.com/2012/05/16/the-kelly-thomas-murder-where-has-all-the-compassion-gone/#axzz2KKYUDMPF
Are good cops punished for reporting abuse?
Yes. That is why rookies are given hazing type initiations so they understand the rules of being a silent witness to abuses by bad cops and those with higher ranking have already played along with the code of silence for years. Good cops don't last long on most big city police forces.
Are LAPD officers the worst for corruption and unreported abuses?
Not exactly. The runners up for worst abuses and corruption are New Orleans PD, NYPD and most recently Albuquerque, New Mexico PD who are under investigation by DOJ for repeated abuse cases.
Now the people are told that we cannot defend ourselves and must rely upon the police for our protections. Yet when the police themselves are the violent ones and those who try to speak out against this are fired then driven into insane rage, what remains?
The real danger out there isn't Chris Dorner, it is officers like Teresa "Chupacabra" Evans who remains on the LAPD force with a badge and a gun, free and able to attack and torment other mentally ill people at her whim.
"She is Dangerous"
"It took me ages to complete
the other lines underneath
Now they are here after all
Like the sun rise and falls
Time means nothing to me now
She d cast a spell and now I am bound
She s the force I always feared
Now I m lost for years
She s dangerous,she s dangerous
I m crouching down on my knees
Cos she s so hard to please
And I am all messed up now
It simply has to stop somehow
I d let her soak up my soul
Now I feel she is in control
There s no one to believe
I don t want her here
She s dangerous,she s dangerous
Now you know the truth
She knows it too
She s dangerous,she s dangerous http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2O7y8YXRIik
