Usually when someone is executed, there is an arrest, an arraignment, a Grand Jury indictment or preliminary hearing information, a second arraignment, jury selection, a trial, a conviction, a sentencing hearing, appeals and a last meal. Law enforcement in California has found a new approach to criminal justice. It is the barbecue-them-in-the-cabin technique.
In California’s new criminal justice program, a lot of money is theoretically saved by not having to worry about investigations paperwork, discovery, hearings, the cost of a jury, judicial salaries, clerks’ salaries, reporters’ salaries, executioner’s salaries and so forth. Given that nobody has been executed in CA in years, the barbecue technique is the most certain and fastest way to the particular goal of terminating a California resident with prejudice – in theory. So now, we can forget about irrelevant details like the Constitutions of the United States and the State of California, the California Penal Code, and the beyond-a-reasonable-doubt standard.
At this point, it probably doesn’t make any sense to ask who really killed Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence. After all, with the execution over and done with, why should anyone care what happened to these individuals? It’s not my problem or yours. The media is busy making money off the uncorroborated and unsupported official story. But if you are crazy like me and still think that that two-and-a-quarter-century-old document called the Constitution matters, you might be interested in finding out what really happened to these two lovebirds.
Under the official story, at 9:10 P.M on February 3, 2013 a couple, walking through the upper floor (roof level) of the parking garage at 2100 Scholarship, Irvine CA, spotted a man and woman slumped over inside a car that reportedly belonged to Keith Lawrence.
None of the reports mention any bullet holes in the vehicle, just the slumped over bodies. The car was parked in a “guest” parking space 269 or 271, according to an informant. (see photograph).

This is a security garage. To get in through either the car gates or the pedestrian entrance, a remote control or a code is required. This means, in all likelihood, someone let the assailant into the garage. This writer got in, but this writer is not a big Black guy in a million dollar area of one of the most racist counties in America. While there may not have been much in the way of cameras, there were lights including one right where Keith parked.

Keith was a Fullerton Police Officer. Police officers continue to carry their guns with them when they are off duty. Monica had grown up in a police family and would have been trained from childhood to be on alert too. Unless invited, Chris would have been out of place in that garage and Keith likely would have gone for his gun, instinctively – unless he trusted Chris Dorner. Unless Chris were a friend, he would not have known which parking space Keith would take, a necessary bit of information for hiding out and lying in wait. It is unlikely that Chris could have shot both Keith and Monica without one of the two getting off a counter-shot. So you have an assailant who is let into the parking structure and allowed to approach the car of his armed victims prior to their deaths. If Chris Dorner were on some kind of vendetta against Monica’s father, is it likely she and her fiancé Keith would have allowed him into the parking garage and close to the vehicle?
Another interesting fact is that no shots were heard by any of the tenants. Unless Arlen Specter wants to return from the dead and present another miracle bullet theory, there would have been at least two shots. The coroner’s report stated there were multiple gunshot wounds. (Source)
