An ex-cop with a stockpile of weaponry is being sought by police in Los Angeles after being implicated in a double murder in Irvine, and the police searching for him seem to have pretty itchy trigger fingers of their own. I’m staying inside today.

Los Angeles (CNN) — A former Los Angeles cop who allegedly warned he would target law enforcement in retribution for being fired is now suspected of shooting three officers early Thursday, killing one, authorities said.

The shootings — which come a day after Irvine, California, police named Christopher Jordan Dorner as the suspect in a double slaying there Sunday — sparked a huge manhunt in Southern California.

It also left officers extremely jittery. According to a senior law enforcement source, two people were wounded when officers in Torrance, California, opened fire on a blue pickup truck after it pulled up in front of a house where they were guarding a fellow officer Dorner had allegedly named as a target.

The truck — which turned out to be a newspaper delivery vehicle — resembled the truck Dorner is believed to be driving, the source said. Police also shot at another blue pickup in that city, but no one was injured in that incident, the source said.

The right wing blogosphere immediately leaped into action on this news, desperately trying to blame this rogue cop’s violent actions on “liberals.” I won’t link to these morons; you can easily find them raving in unison all over the wingnut blogs this morning.
