Forget Django: Christopher Dorner is now the new Nat Turner

So, what do we really know about accused cop-killer Christopher Dorner? Just enough to be dangerous, apparently. He’s already been compared to the fictional heroes of “Django Unchained” and “First Blood.” He’s been named a future honoree of Black History Month. Put it all together and you end up with a modern-day Nat Turner, leader of the 1831 slave rebellion. Sure, why not? At least that shows some awareness of black history, despite the desperate stretch it takes to link Nat Turner to a fired police officer suspected of killing a basketball coach and security officer.

Is this history repeating itself? If so, who was playing the part of Charlie Sheen in 1831?
