It reads like the plot to a bad revenge-themed action movie:
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 California Highway Patrol issued an alert Thursday morning urging officers in several Southern California counties to be on the lookout for the onetime officer and Navy lieutenant who allegedly threatened police officers and their families in a lengthy letter complaining of his treatment by the Los Angeles Police Department.
The Dorner manifesto is chilling to behold.
As Christopher Dorner tells the tale, a good cop turns in a bad cop to internal affairs for beating a suspect in handcuffs, earns the ire of the department for crossing the “thin blue line,” sees his career and life destroyed as a result, and goes on a bloody rampage to get to those who have tormented him. The vendetta targets LAPD officers, brass, and their families, and seems to threaten anyone who attempts to help injured officers.
So far, he has executed the daughter of a former police captain and her fiancee, killed one LAPD officer and has wounded two more (one seriously) as the manhunt widens. He claims to own .50 BMG rifles and even more incredibly claims to have SA-7s, which are first generation man-portable surface-to-air missiles of Russian design.
The LAPD is freaking out in result to Dorner’s rampage and have already shot up two vehicles, with more than 40 rounds fired into one vehicle sending two people to the hospital. Rather obviously, Dorner has one of the largest police forces in the United States reacting rashly and dangerously, and we can only hope that no one is killed by a trigger happy cop firing at ghosts and shadows.
The only thing more chilling than the Dorner manifesto linked above, is the partial Dorner manifesto (PDF) being misrepresented as a complete document, where his gun-control loving, pro-Hillary, pro-Obama, rants are completely edited out. Yes, like the Occupy terrorists, Floyd Corkins, and Nkosi Thandiwe, Christopher Dorner is another radical left wing terrorist the media is trying hard to cover up for, even as they are forced to cover his crimes.
It’s highly unethical, dishonest, and well, your media folks. They’ll cover up whatever they deem fit to protect their narrative.
