2 hurt in Dorner hunt get millions

The two women wounded when Los Angeles police shot at their pickup truck during the manhunt for renegade ex-officer Christopher Dorner will split a $4.2 million settlement, attorneys for the city and women told reporters Tuesday.

The details of the settlement need to be approved by the Los Angeles City Council, they said.

Margie Carranza, 47, and her mother, Emma Hernandez, 71, will receive $2.1 million each.

Carranza and Hernandez were shot at as police searched for Dorner, a former police officer who was wanted for killing several people in early February.

    If a policeman tries to kill someone without properly identifying them, or determining that there is an imminent threat to himself or others, then they should be tried for attempted murder.

    They shouldn't have sued. It was an honest mistake. They should just take one for the team.

    Funny how no one is making sure it doesn't happen again. Same old same old. Pay'em to go away and business as usual.
