Civilian oversight board faults LAPD deployment of officers in mistaken manhunt shooting

A civilian board that found eight officers violated Los Angeles Police Department policy in mistakenly firing on two women during the manhunt for ex-cop Christopher Dorner also faults the department itself.

The 36-page Police Commission report released late Tuesday says the officers were rotated in during the night to protect a Dorner target's Torrance home because of overtime concerns. The supervisor wasn't trained to oversee such a protection detail and there was no operational plan. The commission also cites the officers' inadequate firepower.

The officers riddled a pickup truck with 103 rounds, wounded two newspaper delivery women inside and hit seven nearby homes and nine other vehicles.

Dorner had vowed warfare on LAPD officers and their families for what he called an unfair firing.
