Normal MASSIVE MANHUNT in Los Angeles for Ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner/ Was reported that his body was found in a flaming cabin/ Christopher Dorner's body positively ID'd/Died of Self-Inflicted Gunshot to his Head.

A man identified Wednesday as the suspect in the slayings of a college basketball coach and her fiance is a former LAPD Harbor Division police officer fired for falsely accusing his sergeant for kicking a man at a San Pedro hotel.

According to an online manifesto, Christopher Jordan Dorner of La Palma might have committed the double-homicide out of revenge for his dismissal from the force.

"Suppressing the truth will lead to deadly consequences for you and your family," according to an excerpt of the manifesto posted on the KTLA news website. "There will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep."

Dorner was charged by his own department in 2007 with making false statements to detectives investigating a false complaint he made against a female police sergeant. A Los Angeles police Board of Rights disciplinary hearing included testimony from numerous Los Angeles police and port police officers, according to a 2nd District Court of Appeal document posted online.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the coach's father, a longtime LAPD officer, represented Dorner before the review board that fired him.

"The Los Angeles Police Department Board of Rights found that (Dorner's) complaint was false and therefore terminated his employment for making false statements," the document said.

Dorner was identified Wednesday evening as a wanted suspect in the shooting death of Monica Quan and her fiance, Keith Lawrence, in Irvine. Quan, the assistant basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton, was the daughter of a longtime LAPD officer, Randy Quan.
At Dorner's disciplinary hearing, numerous officers testified about a July 28, 2007, "use of force" incident at the Doubletree Hotel in San Pedro in which Dorner's training officer, Sgt. Teresa Evans, shot a mentally ill man with a Taser gun to subdue him when Dorner and the man struggled and fell into bushes. Other officers and witnesses described the use of force similarly, but Dorner filed a report saying Evans had kicked the man twice in the shoulder and face, and discouraged him from including the information in his police report.
"(Dorner) was visibly upset when he spoke with Capt. Deming, and Capt. Deming believed this was caused by fear of repercussions for reporting misconduct by a training officer," the appellate ruling said. "Because of his fear of repercussions, (Dorner) told Capt. Deming, 'Promise me you won't do anything.' "

Dorner later said someone urinated on his equipment bag at the Harbor Division station, but an analysis showed no urine on his jacket.

Evans testified that she and Dorner confronted a man on a bench outside the hotel's main door. Evans said the man appeared either mentally ill or under the influence. Dorner told him to stand up, but the man did not comply, so Dorner lifted him up by the arm.

As they walked near a planter, the suspect took a swing at Dorner and cussed at him, prompting Evans to pull a Taser gun and call for backup. When Dorner and the man fell into the bushes, Evans shot the man twice with the Taser and Dorner handcuffed him. The suspect had marks on his face, but no boot marks, the document said.

Dorner took a long time to write his use of force report, and was told later by Evans in an evaluation that he needed to take less time to write his reports.

"Evans also had indicated in an evaluation that appellant needed to improve in the areas of officer safety and common sense and good judgment," the document said.

Dorner, however, testified that Evans kicked the suspect twice in the left collarbone and the left cheek.

"Dorner also testified that he was hesitant to report the kicks because when he was in the police academy, he had reported an incident in which two recruits were using a racial epithet against another recruit. He had been shunned by other recruits after that, so he did not want to speak up again," the document said.

Dorner, who graduated from the police academy in February 2006, spent 13 months on a military deployment in 2006. When he returned, he was assigned to the Harbor Division and worked with Evans.

Detectives investigating Dorner's complaints against Evans found no evidence to support them.

"After reviewing all the evidence, the Board stated that it could not find that the kicks occurred," the document said, siding with testimony of other officers and witnesses.

"The Board found that appellant had failed to report the alleged kicks, despite numerous opportunities to do so, and that his testimony regarding his reasons for not reporting the kicks was not credible."

The Board suspected Dorner made the false report because he was going to receive an unsatisfactory probationary rating, and found him guilty of making the false charges. Dorner then lost his job.

Dorner appealed, but the court upheld the LAPD's decision to terminate him.

Dorner's manifesto indicated he was seeking revenge against Quan, Evans and others.

"I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I'm terminating yours. Quan, Anderson, Evans, and BOR members Look your wives/husbands and surviving children directly in the face and tell them the truth as to why your children are dead," it read. "This is my last resort. The LAPD has suppressed the truth and it has now lead to deadly consequences. Your day has come."

Normal Massive Manhunt Underway For Ex-Cop After Riverside Police Officer Fatally Shot February 7, 2013 5:21 AM

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:29 am

RIVERSIDE (CBSLA.com) — Authorities are on a manhunt Thursday for an ex-cop suspected in killing a Riverside police officer and critically injuring another.

Riverside police were searching Thursday for Christopher Dorner, a former Los Angeles Police Department officer, after he was named a suspect Wednesday night in a double homicide in Irvine.

“Two of our officers were involved in a shooting at the intersection of Arlington and Magnolia. Both officers were shot and transported to a local hospital. One was pronounced dead, the other one is currently in surgery and is in critical condition,” Officer Bryan Galbreath told KNX 1070.

Authorities believe that Dorner targeted the daughter of Randy Quan, a retired LAPD officer who acted as Dorner’s attorney at a 2008 hearing that accused him of making false statements against another officer. Dorner denied the charge but was ultimately fired from the department.

Police said Dorner is suspected in killing Quan’s 28-year-old daughter, Monica, and her fiancé Keith Lawrence Sunday as retaliation. He posted a 20-page manifesto on Facebook saying, “I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours.”

In the rambling manifesto, Dorner said his life ended when police fired him and it ended “again” when the Navy let him go this month.

Police received a call at 9:10 p.m. Sunday about a person slumped over in a parked car at 2100 Scholarship. Authorities found the recently engaged couple dead in Lawrence’s Kia, which was parked at the top of the five-story structure for the building where they lived.

Dorner is described as 6 feet tall, 270 pounds and “likely armed and dangerous.” His last known address was in La Palma. Dorner is believed to be in a gray 2005 Nissan Titan license plate 8D83987.

Wednesday the LAPD issued a statement that read in part “The Los Angeles Police Department is working in coordination with the Irvine Police Department regarding the investigation related to Christopher Jordan Dorner … The Department has learned that Christopher Dorner has made threats against members of the LAPD and we are taking those threats very seriously as we do all threats against our personnel and the public.”

They added, “The only information that the Department will confirm regarding Dorner’s previous employment is that he was employed as a police officer from February 7, 2002 until September 4, 2008 when his employment with the Department terminated.”

If you know Dorner’s whereabouts, you’re asked to call (949) 724-7192.

Normal Former LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner suspected of shooting 3 California officers, 1 killed

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:36 am

LOS ANGELES - A former Los Angeles police officer sought for two weekend killings -- and who threatened to kill police -- is a suspect in an overnight shooting in nearby Riverside that killed one officer and critically wounded another, police said Thursday.
The shooting happened early Thursday morning in the Los Angeles suburb of Corona. The wounded officer is in surgery. A third officer suffered a graze wound.
Two Newton station officers on security duty in the same area were also involved in a shooting overnight, but they weren't hurt, police said.
Former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Jordan Dorner is the suspect who's wanted in the killings of Monica Quan and her fiancee, Keith Lawrence, who were found shot to death in their car at a parking structure Sunday night, Irvine police Chief David L. Maggard said at a news conference Wednesday night.
Dorner, 33, implicated himself in the killings with a multi-page "manifesto" that he wrote that included threats against several people, including members of the LAPD, police said. They gave no further details on the document or its contents.
Autopsies showed that Quan and Lawrence were killed by multiple gunshot wounds in the parking structure at their condominium in Irvine, Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said earlier Wednesday.
Quan, 28, was an assistant women's basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton. Lawrence, 27, was a public safety officer at the University of Southern California.
The killings brought mourning and disbelief at three college campuses, Fullerton, USC, and Concordia University, where the two met when they were both students and basketball players.
Police do not know Dorner's whereabouts, and authorities were seeking the public's help in finding him.
"We have strong cause to believe Dorner is armed and dangerous," Maggard said, adding that the LAPD and FBI are assisting in the case.
Police said the U.S. Navy reservist may be driving a blue 2005 Nissan Titan pickup truck. His last known address was in La Palma in northern Orange County near Fullerton.
Dorner was with the department from 2005 until 2008, when he was fired for making false statements.
Quan's father, a former LAPD captain who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Dorner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Dorner at the time of his dismissal, LAPD Capt. William Hayes told The Associated Press Wednesday night.
Randal Quan retired in 2002. He later served as chief of police at Cal Poly Pomona before he started practicing law.
According to documents from a court of appeals hearing in October 2011, Dorner was fired from the LAPD after he made a complaint against his field training officer, Sgt. Teresa Evans. Dorner said that in the course of an arrest, Evans kicked suspect Christopher Gettler, a schizophrenic with severe dementia.
Following an investigation, Dorner was fired for making false statements.
Richard Gettler, the schizophrenic man's father, gave testimony that supported Dorner's claim. After his son was returned on July 28, 2007, Richard Gettler asked "if he had been in a fight because his face was puffy" and his son responded that he was kicked twice in the chest by a police officer.

Normal Christopher Jordan Dorner manhunt: Background and latest news

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:42 am

The profile of Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, includes the facts that he is a former LAPD police officer and Navy reservist now wanted for several murders and threats of murder in California as of Thur., Feb. 7, 2013.

Breaking news on Thursday morning revealed that Dorner is now wanted in the shootings of three police officers in addition to the murders of two people on Sunday night.

One of the three officers shot Wednesday evening was shot in Corona, and KTTV reported Thursday that the officer was killed. The other two officers were shot in Riverside and one of them is undergoing surgery and the other one was only slightly injured.


The two murder victims, Monica Quan, 28, a Fullerton basketball coach, and her fiance, USC public safety officer Keith Lawrence, 27, were found dead inside their car located in a parking garage of their Irvine, Calif. condo.

Christopher Jordan Dorner is the suspect in all five shootings per KTLA5.com, and a massive police hunt is in operation for him. He was last seen in the area of the 15 Freeway and Magnolia Boulevard in Corona.

The ex-LAPD officer is believed to be driving a 2005 blue Nissan Titan pickup with the California license plate number 7X03191.

Dorner is said to have made a 2008 false statement about his training officer Sgt. Teresa Evans, alleging that during one call they made she kicked a schizophrenic with severe dementia per Fox News. That resulted in his Jan. 2, 2009 firing.

A subsequent hearing in 2011 by the law enforcement community and his department resulted in his firing being upheld, and the suspect alleges in a 20-page manifesto that the man representing him at that tribunal, former LAPD Capt. Randy Quan "works for the department," rather than the officers, like him, who hire him for representation according to KTLA.

Revenge now motivates the disgruntled officer based upon his writings, and to that end he feels that since Quan did not represent him in a manner that secured his status, so he must now do what he can to "reclaim my name." And that appears to include attacks against Quan's family because Christopher Jordan Dorner said in his manifesto that "I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own; I'm terminating yours."

Normal Fired LAPD cop makes threats prior to alleged murders

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:46 am

On Feb. 7 it was announced that a manhunt for former LAPD cop Christopher Jordan Dorner has begun after two bodies were found that he is alleged to have killed in a parking deck in California.

The former LAPD officer has also threatened numerous others in a lengthy 20-page manifesto, which is causing the law enforcement agency to take measures to protect their own. And it all comes as a result, according to Dorner's own words, due to an injustice he feels that he has received from an agency he gave his life to per Fox News.

Revenge over a firing that he feels was not warranted, and the subsequent poor representation he feels one of the victims' father gave to him at a police tribunal, is the motive in the case.


Numerous news accounts name the victims as Monica Quan, 28, the daughter of the man who represented Dorner at the tribunal, and Keith Lawrence, 27, her fiance and a USC public safety officer, who just happened to be in the car with her in their apartment's parking garage at the time of her slaying and his.

The murders took place on Sunday night in the couple's Irvine Condo complex parking garage per LA Weekly, with both victims taking multiple gunshot wounds.

Monica is the daughter of retired LAPD Capt. Randy Quan, who became a lawyer after he retired, and is the man responsible for representing the suspect in his police tribunal that left him forever devoid of a continued career in policing.

Law enforcement agencies have in-house systems in place to deal with accusations of misconduct by officers besides any formal charges that may be leveled in the justice system if the matter is criminal.

In the state of Georgia it is the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council, which consists of 11 members, six of which are appointed by the governor. Those members include one chief of police, one county sheriff, one city manager or mayor, one city commissioner and two municipal police officers.

Such "tribunals" can be formal in nature, as the Georgia version, and forever influence the policeman's reputation as a law enforcement officer with other agencies, impacting whether he can ever work in the field again in that state, or they can be more informal.

Christopher Jordan Dorner contends that due to the LAPD employee he had an issue with at the beginning of this story, along with Quan's representation at such a tribunal and other interactions within the agency, that he is now suffering a fate worse than death to him, and he plans to exact his revenge on a large scale.

Normal Christopher Dorner’s Manifesto (Disturbing Content and Language)

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:49 am

From: Christopher Jordan Dorner /7648

To: America

Subj: Last resort

Regarding CF# 07-004281

I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days. You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen. I know I will be vilified by the LAPD and the media. Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name. The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions.

The question is, what would you do to clear your name?

Name;
A word or set of words by which a person, animal, place, or thing is known, addressed, or referred to.

Name Synonyms;
reputation, title, appellation, denomination, repute.

A name is more than just a noun, verb, or adjective. It’s your life, your legacy, your journey, sacrifices, and everything you’ve worked hard for every day of your life as and adolescent, young adult and adult. Don’t let anybody tarnish it when you know you’ve live up to your own set of ethics and personal ethos.

In 8/07 I reported an officer (Ofcr. XXXX/now a Sergeant), for kicking a suspect (excessive force) during a Use of Force while I was assigned as a patrol officer at LAPD’s Harbor Division. While cuffing the suspect, (XXXX), XXXX kicked the suspect twice in the chest and once in the face. The kick to the face left a visible injury on the left cheek below the eye. Unfortunately after reporting it to supervisors and investigated by PSB (internal affairs investigator Det. XXXX), nothing was done. I had broken their supposed “Blue Line”. Unfortunately, It’s not JUST US, it’s JUSTICE!!! In fact, 10 months later on 6/25/08, after already successfully completing probation, acquiring a basic Post Certificate, and Intermediate Post Certificate, I was relieved of duty by the LAPD while assigned to patrol at Southwest division. It is clear as day that the department retaliated toward me for reporting XXXX for kicking Mr. XXXX. The department stated that I had lied and made up the report that XXXX had kicked the suspect. I later went to a Board of Rights (department hearing for decision of continued employment) from 10/08 to 1/09. During this BOR hearing a video was played for the BOR panel where XXXX stated that he was indeed kicked by Officer XXXX (video sent to multiple news agencies). In addition to XXXX stating he was kicked, his father XXXX, also stated that his son had stated he was kicked by an officer when he was arrested after being released from custody. This was all presented for the department at the BOR hearing. They still found me guilty and terminated me. What they didn’t mention was that the BOR panel made up of Capt. XXXX, Capt. XXXX, and City Attorney XXXX had a significant problem from the time the board was assembled. Capt. XXXX was a personal friend of XXXX from when he was her supervisor at Harbor station. That is a clear conflict of interest and I made my argument for his removal early and was denied. The advocate for the LAPD BOR was Sgt. XXXX. XXXX also had a conflict of interest as she was XXXX friend and former partner from Harbor division where they both worked patrol together. I made my argument for her removal when I discovered her relation to XXXX and it was denied.

During the BOR, the department attempted to label me unsuccessfully as a bully. They stated that I had bullied a recruit, XXXX, in the academy when in reality and unfounded disposition from the official 1.28 formal complaint investigation found that I was the one who stood up for XXXX when other recruits sang nazi hitler youth songs about burning Jewish ghettos in WWII Germany where his father was a survivor of a concentration camp. How f\'ing dare you attempt to label me with such a nasty vile word. I ask that all earnest journalist investigating this story ask Ofcr. XXXX about the incident when Ofcr. XXXX began singing a nazi youth song about burning jewish ghettos.

The internal affairs investigation in the academy involving XXXX was spurned by a complaint that I had initiated toward two fellow recruit/offifcers. While assigned patrol footbeat in Hollywood Division, Officers XXXX and XXXX (both current LAPD officers) decided that they would voice their personal feelings about the black community. While traveling back to the station in a 12 passenger van I heard XXXX refer to another individual as a nigger. I wasn’t sure if I heard correctly as there were many conversations in the van that was compiled of at least 8 officers and he was sitting in the very rear and me in the very front. Even with the multiple conversations and ambient noise I heard Officer XXXX call an indivdual a nigger again. Now that I had confirmed it, I told XXXX not to use that word again. I explained that it was a well-known offensive word that should not be used by anyone. He replied, “I’ll say it when I want”. Officer XXXX, a friend of his, also stated that he would say nigger when he wanted. At that point I jumped over my front passenger seat and two other officers where I placed my hands around XXXXs’ neck and squeezed. I stated to XXXX, “Don’t f\'ing say that”. At that point there was pushing and shoving and we were separated by several other officers. What I should have done, was put a Winchester Ranger SXT 9mm 147 grain bullet in his skull and Officer XXXX’s skull. The Situation would have been resolved effective, immediately. The sad thing about this incident was that when Detective XX from internal affairs investigated this incident only (1) officer (unknown) in the van other than myself had statements constistent with what actually happened. The other six officers all stated they heard nothing and saw nothing. Shame on every one of you. Shame on Detective XXXX (same ethnicity as XXXX) for creating a separate 1.28 formal complaint against me (XXXX complaint) in retaliation for initiating the complaint against XXXX and XXXX. Don’t retaliate against honest officers for breaking your so-called blue line. I hope your son XXXX, who I knew, is a better officer than you, Detective XX. The saddest part of this ordeal was that Officer XXXX and XXXX were only given 22 day suspensions and are still LAPD officers to this day. That day, the LAPD stated that it is acceptable for fellow officers to call black officers niggers to their face and you will receive a slap on the wrist. Even sadder is that during that 22 day suspension XXXX and XXXX received is that the LAPPL (Los Angeles Police Protective League) paid the officers their salaries while they were suspended. When I took a two-day suspension for an accidental discharge, I took my suspension and never applied for a league salary. Its called integrity.

Journalist, I want you to investigate every location I resided in growing up. Find any incidents where I was ever accused of being a bully. You won’t, because it doesn’t exist. It’s not in my DNA. Never was. I was the only black kid in each of my elementary school classes from first grade to seventh grade in junior high and any instances where I was disciplined for fighting was in response to fellow students provoking common childhood schoolyard fights, or calling me a nigger or other derogatory racial names. I grew up in neighborhoods where blacks make up less than 1%. My first recollection of racism was in the first grade at Norwalk Christian elementary school in Norwalk, CA. A fellow student, XXXX if I can recall, called me a nigger on the playground. My response was swift and non-lethal. I struck him fast and hard with a punch an kick. He cried and reported it to a teacher. The teacher reported it to the principal. The principal swatted XXXX for using a derogatory word toward me. He then for some unknown reason swatted me for striking XXXX in response to him calling me a nigger. He stated as good Christians we are to turn the other cheek as Jesus did. Problem is, I’m not a f\'ing Christian and that old book, made of fiction and limited non-fiction, called the bible, never once stated Jesus was called a nigger. How dare you swat me for standing up for my rights for demanding that I be treated as an equal human being. That day I made a life decision that i will not tolerate racial derogatory terms spoken to me. Unfortunately I was swatted multiple times for the same exact reason up until junior high. Terminating me for telling the truth of a Caucasian officer kicking a mentally ill man is disgusting. Don’t ever call me a f\'ing bully. I want all journalist to utilize every source you have that specializes in collections for your reports. With the discovery and evidence available you will see the truth. Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That’s what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name. Below is a list of locations where I resided from childhood to adulthood.

Cerritos, CA.
Pico Rivera, CA.
La Palma, CA.
Thousand Oaks, CA.
Cedar City, UT.
Pensacola, FL.
Enid, OK.
Yorba Linda, CA.
Las Vegas, NV.

During the BOR an officer named, Sgt. XXXX, from Los Angeles Port Police testified on behalf of the LAPD. XXXX stated for the BOR that he arrived at the location of the UOF shortly before I cuffed the suspect. He also stated that he assisted in cuffing the suspect and that’s old the BOR he told me to fix my tie. All of those statements were LIES!!! XXXX, you arrived at the UOF location up to 30 seconds after I had cuffed Mr.XXXX. All you did was help me lift the suspect to his feet as it was difficult for me to do by myself because of his heavy weight. You did not tell me to fix my tie as the BOR members and everyone else in the room know you lied because the photographic evidence from the UOF scene where XXXX’s injuries were photographed clearly shows me wearing a class B uniform on that day. A class B uniform is a short sleeved uniform blouse. A short sleeved uniform blouse for the LAPD does not have a tie included. This is not Super Troopers uniform, you jackass. Why did you feel the need to embellish and lie about your involvement in the UOF? Are you ashamed that you could not get hired on by any other department other than port police? Do you have delusions of grandeur? What you did was perjury, exactly what Evans did when she stated she did not kick XXXX.

What they failed to mention in the BOR was XXXX own use of force history during her career on the LAPD. She has admitted that she has a lengthy use of force record and has been flagged several times by risk management. She has a very well known nickname, Chupacabra, which she was very proud to flaunt around the division. She found it very funny and entertaining to draw blood from suspects and arrestees. At one point she even intentionally ripped the flesh off the arm of a woman we had arrested for battery (sprayed her neighbor with a garden water hose). Knowing the woman had thin elastic skin, she performed and Indian burn to the woman’s arm after cuffing her. That woman was in her mid-70’s, a mother and grandmother, and was angry at her tenants who failed to pay rent on time. Something I can completely understand and I am sure many have wanted to do toward tenants who do not pay their rent. XXXX was also demoted from a senior lead officer rank/position for performance issues. During my two months of working patrol with XXXX, I found her as a woman who was very angry that she had been pulled from patrol for a short time because of a domestic violence report made by Long Beach Police Department because of an incident involving her active LAPD officer boyfriend, XXXX, and herself. XXXX is the same officer investigated for witness tampering. She also was visibly angry on a daily basis that she was going to have to file for bankruptcy because her ex-husband, a former LAPD officer and not XXXX, who had left the department, state, and was nowhere to be found had left her with a tax bill and debt that she was unable to pay because of a lack of financial means. XXXX, you are a POS and you lied right to the BOR panel when XXXX asked you if you kicked XXXX. You destroyed my life and name because of your actions. Time is up. The time is now to confess to Chief Beck.

I ask that all journalist investigating this story submit request for FOIA with the LAPD to gain access to the BOR transcripts which occurred from 10/08 to 2/09. There, you will see that a video was played for the BOR members of Mr. XXXX who suffers from Schizophrenia and Dementia stating that he was kicked by a female officer. That video evidence supports my claim that XXXX kicked him twice in the upper body and once in the face. I would like all journalist to also request copies of all reports that I had written while employed by LAPD. Whether in the academy, or during my 3 years as a police officer. There are DR#’s attached to each report (investigative report) that I have ever written so they all exist. A FOIA request will most likely be needed to access these at Parker center or at the Personnel/Records. Judge my writin/grammar skills for yourself. The department attempted to paint me as an officer who could not write reports. Even though Sgt. XXXX a training officer who trained me stated for the BOR panel that there was nothing wrong with my report writing and that I was better than all rookie/probationer officers he has ever trained. Officer XXXX stated the same but refused to testify as he did not want to “get involved” with the BOR’s. Contact Sgt. XXXX ,(now a Captain at Lompoc PD), Sgt. XXXX, and Sgt. XXXX. All will state that my report writing was impeccable. I will tell you this, I always type my reports because I have messy handwriting/penmanship. I never had a single kickback/redlined report at Southwest division and Sgt. XXXX and Sgt. XXXX can testify to that. I never received an UNSATISFACTORY on any day or week. The same can be said within the U.S. Naval Reserves. All commanders will state that my report writing was always clear, concise, and impeccable. Even search my AAR (after action reports),chits, Memorandum’s, IIR’s (Intelligence Information Reports) which were written in the Navy. All were pristine.

I had worked patrol at LAPD’s Harbor Division from 2/06 until 7/06 when I was involuntarily recalled back to active duty (US Navy) for a 12 month mobilization/deployment to Centcom in support of OIF/OEF. I returned back to LAPD’s Harbor division on 7/07 and immediately returned to patrol. I worked at Harbor division until 11/07 where I then transferred to Southwest Division. I worked At Southwest division until 6/25/08 when I was relieved of duty.

I have exhausted all available means at obtaining my name back. I have attempted all legal court efforts within appeals at the Superior Courts and California Appellate courts. This is my last resort. The LAPD has suppressed the truth and it has now lead to deadly consequences. The LAPD’s actions have cost me my law enforcement career that began on 2/7/05 and ended on 1/2/09. They cost me my Naval career which started on 4/02 and ends on 2/13. I had a TS/SCI clearance(Top Secret Sensitive Compartmentalized Information clearance) up until shortly after my termination with LAPD. This is the highest clearance a service member can attain other than a Yankee White TS/SCI which is only granted for those working with and around the President/Vice President of the United States. I lost my position as a Commanding Officer of a Naval Security Forces reserve unit at NAS Fallon because of the LAPD. I’ve lost a relationship with my mother and sister because of the LAPD. I’ve lost a relationship with close friends because of the LAPD. In essence, I’ve lost everything because the LAPD took my name and new I was INNOCENT!!! XXXX, XXXX, XXXX , and XXXX all new I was innocent but decided to terminate me so they could continue Ofcr. XXXX. I know about the meeting between all of you where XXXX attorney, XXXX, confessed that she kicked XXXX (excessive force). Your day has come.

I’m not an aspiring rapper, I’m not a gang member, I’m not a dope dealer, I don’t have multiple babies momma’s. I am an American by choice, I am a son, I am a brother, I am a military service member, I am a man who has lost complete faith in the system, when the system betrayed, slandered, and libeled me. I lived a good life and though not a religious man I always stuck to my own personal code of ethics, ethos and always stuck to my shoreline and true North. I didn’t need the US Navy to instill Honor, Courage, and Commitment in me but I thank them for re-enforcing it. It’s in my DNA.

Luckily I don’t have to live everyday like most of you. Concerned if the misconduct you were apart of is going to be discovered. Looking over your shoulder, scurrying at every phone call from internal affairs or from the Captains office wondering if that is the day PSB comes after you for the suspects you struck when they were cuffed months/years ago or that $500 you pocketed from the narcotics dealer, or when the other guys on your watch beat a transient nearly to death and you never reported the UOF to the supervisor. No, I don’t have that concern, I stood up for what was right but unfortunately have dealt with the reprocussions of doing the right thing and now losing my name and everything I ever stood for. You fuckers knew XXXX was guilty of kicking (excessive force) XXXX and you did nothing but get rid of what you saw as the problem, the whistleblower. XXXX himself stated on video tape ( provided for the BOR and in transcripts) he was kicked and even his father stated that his son said he was kicked by Evans when he was released from custody. The video was played for the entire BOR to hear. You’re going to see what a whistleblower can do when you take everything from him especially his NAME!!!

Look what you did to Sgt. XXXX (now lieutenant) when he exposed the truth of your lying, racism, and PSB cover-ups to frame and convict an innocent man. You can not police yourselves and the consent decree was unsuccessful. Sgt. Gavin, I met you on the range several times as a recruit and as an officer. You’re a good man and I saw it in your eyes an actions.

Self Preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death as I died long ago on 1/2/09. I was told by my mother that sometimes bad things happen to good people. I refuse to accept that.

From 2/05 to 1/09 I saw some of the most vile things humans can inflict on others as a police officer in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it wasn’t in the streets of LA. It was in the confounds of LAPD police stations and shops (cruisers). The enemy combatants in LA are not the citizens and suspects, it’s the police officers.

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. How ironic that you utilize a fixed glass structure as your command HQ. You use as a luminous building to symbolize that you are transparent, have nothing to hide, or suppress when in essence, concealing, omitting, and obscuring is your forte.

Chief Beck, this is when you need to have that come to Jesus talk with Sgt. XXXX and everyone else who was involved in the conspiracy to have me terminated for doing the right thing. you also need to speak with her attorney, Rico, and his conversation with the BOR members and her confession of guilt in kicking Mr. XXXX. I’ll be waiting for a PUBLIC response at a press conference. When the truth comes out, the killing stops.

Why didn’t you charge me with filing a false police report when I came forward stating that XXXX kicked Mr. XXXX? You file criminal charges against every other officer who is accused and terminated for filing a false police report. You didn’t because you knew I was innocent and a criminal court would find me innocent and expose your department for suppressing the truth and retaliation, that’s why.

The attacks will stop when the department states the truth about my innocence, PUBLICLY!!! I will not accept any type of currency/goods in exchange for the attacks to stop, nor do i want it. I want my name back, period. There is no negotiation. I am not the state department who states they do not negotiate with terrorist, because anybody with a Secret or TS/SCI has seen IIR’s on SIPR and knows that the US state department always negotiates by using CF countries or independent sovereign/neutral country to mediate and compromising.

This department has not changed from the Daryl Gates and Mark Fuhrman days. Those officers are still employed and have all promoted to Command staff and supervisory positions. I will correct this error. Are you aware that an officer (a rookie/probationer at the time) seen on the Rodney King videotape striking Mr. King multiple times with a baton on 3/3/91 is still employed by the LAPD and is now a Captain on the police department? Captain XXXX is now the commanding officer of a LAPD police station (West LA division). As a commanding officer, he is now responsible for over 200 officers. Do you trust him to enforce department policy and investigate use of force investigations on arrestees by his officers? Are you aware Evans has since promoted to Sergeant after kicking Mr. XXXX in the face. Oh, you Violated a citizens civil rights? We will promote you. Same as LAPD did with the officers from Metro involved in the May Day melee at MacArthur Park. They promoted them to Sergeant (a supervisor role).

No one is saying you can’t be prejudiced or a bigot. We are all human and hold prejudices. If you state that you don’t have prejudices, your lying! But, when you act on it and victimize innocent citizens and fellow innocen officers, than that is a concern.

For you officers who do the job in the name of JUSTICE, those of you who lost honest officers to this event, look at the name of those on the BOR and the investigating officers from PSB and Evans and ask them, how come you couldn’t tell the truth? Why did you terminate an honest officer and cover for a dishonest officer who victimized a mentally ill citizen.

Sometimes humans feel a need to prove they are the dominant race of a species and they inadvertently take kindness for weakness from another individual. You chose wrong.

Terminating officers because they expose a culture of lying, racism (from the academy), and excessive use of force will immediately change. PSB can not police their own and that has been proven. The blue line will forever be severed and a cultural change will be implanted. You have awoken a sleeping giant.

I am here to change and make policy. The culture of LAPD versus the community and honest/good officers needs to and will change. I am here to correct and calibrate your morale compasses to true north.

Those Caucasian officers who join South Bureau divisions (77th,SW,SE, an Harbor) with the sole intent to victimize minorities who are uneducated, and unaware of criminal law, civil law, and civil rights. You prefer the South bureau because a use of force/deadly force is likely and the individual you use UOF on will likely not report it. You are a high value target.

Those Black officers in supervisory ranks and pay grades who stay in south bureau (even though you live in the valley or OC) for the sole intent of getting retribution toward subordinate caucasians officers for the pain and hostile work environment their elders inflicted on you as probationers (P-1′s) and novice P-2’s. You are a high value target. You perpetuated the cycle of racism in the department as well. You breed a new generation of bigoted caucasian officer when you belittle them and treat them unfairly.

Those Hispanic officers who victimize their own ethnicity because they are new immigrants to this country and are unaware of their civil rights. You call them wetbacks to their face and demean them in front of fellow officers of different ethnicities so that you will receive some sort of acceptance from your colleagues. I’m not impressed. Most likely, your parents or grandparents were immigrants at one time, but you have forgotten that. You are a high value target.

Those lesbian officers in supervising positions who go to work, day in day out, with the sole intent of attempting to prove your misandrist authority (not feminism) to degrade male officers. You are a high value target.

Those Asian officers who stand by and observe everything I previously mentioned other officers participate in on a daily basis but you say nothing, stand for nothing and protect nothing. Why? Because of your usual saying, ” I……don’t like conflict”. You are a high value target as well.

Those of you who “go along to get along” have no backbone and destroy the foundation of courage. You are the enablers of those who are guilty of misconduct. You are just as guilty as those who break the code of ethics and oath you swore.

Citizens/non-combatants, do not render medical aid to downed officers/enemy combatants. They would not do the same for you. They will let you bleed out just so they can brag to other officers that they had a 187 caper the other day and can’t wait to accrue the overtime in future court subpoenas. As they always say, “that’s the paramedics job…not mine”. Let the balance of loss of life take place. Sometimes a reset needs to occur.

It is endless the amount of times per week officers arrest an individual, label him a suspect-arrestee-defendant and then before arraignment or trial realize that he is innocent based on evidence. You know what they say when they realize an innocent man just had his life turned upside down?. “I guess he should have stayed at home that day he was discovered walking down the street and matching the suspects description. Oh well, he appeared to be a dirtbag anyways”. Meanwhile the falsely accused is left to pick up his life, get a new, family, friends, and sense of self worth.

Don’t honor these fallen officers/dirtbags. When your family members die, they just see you as extra overtime at a crime scene and at a perimeter. Why would you value their lives when they clearly don’t value yours or your family members lives? I’ve heard many officers who state they see dead victims as ATV’s, Waverunners, RV’s and new clothes for their kids. Why would you shed a tear for them when they in return crack a smile for your loss because of the impending extra money they will receive in their next paycheck for sitting at your loved ones crime scene of 6 hours because of the overtime they will accrue. They take photos of your loved ones recently deceased bodies with their cellphones and play a game of who has the most graphic dead body of the night with officers from other divisions. This isn’t just the 20 something year old officers, this is the 50 year old officers with significant time on the job as well who participate.

You allow an officer, XXXX, to attempt to hack into my credit union account and still remain on the job even when Det. XXXX shows the evidence that the IP address (provided by LAPFCU) that attempted to hack into my account and change my username and password leads directly to her residence. You even allow this visibly disgusting looking officer to stay on the job when she perjures (lies) in court (Clark County Family Court) to the judge’s face and denies hacking into my personal credit union online account when I attempted to get my restraint order extended. Det. XXXX provided the evidence and you still do nothing.

How do you know when a police officer is lying??? When he begins his sentence with, “based on my experience and training”.

No one grows up and wants to be a cop killer. It was against everything I’ve ever was. As a young police explorer I found my calling in life. But, As a young police officer I found that the violent suspects on the street are not the only people you have to watch. It is the officer who was hired on to the department (pre-2000) before polygraphs were standard for all new hires and a substantial vetting in a backround investigation.

To those children of the officers who are eradicated, your parent was not the individual you thought they were. As you get older,you will see the evidence that your parent was a tyrant who loss their ethos and instead followed the path of moral corruptness. They conspired to hide and suppress the truth of misconduct on others behalf’s. Your parent will have a name and plaque on the fallen officers memorial in D.C. But, In all honesty, your parents name will be a reminder to other officers to maintain the oath they swore and to stay along the shoreline that has guided them from childhood to that of a local, state, or federal law enforcement officer.

Your lack of ethics and conspiring to wrong a just individual are over.
Suppressing the truth will leave to deadly consequences for you and your family. There will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep. I will utilize ISR at your home, workplace, and all locations in between. I will utilize OSINT to discover your residences, spouses workplaces, and children’s schools. IMINT to coordinate and plan attacks on your fixed locations. Its amazing whats on NIPR. HUMINT will be utilized to collect personal schedules of targets. I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours. Quan, Anderson, Evans, and BOR members Look your wives/husbands and surviving children directly in the face and tell them the truth as to why your children are dead.

Never allow a LAPPL union attorney to be a retired LAPD Captain,(XXXX). He doesn’t work for you, your interest, or your name. He works for the department, period. His job is to protect the department from civil lawsuits being filed and their best interest which is the almighty dollar. His loyalty is to the department, not his client. Even when he knowingly knows your innocent and the BOR also knows your innocent after Christopher Gettler stated on videotape that he was kicked and Evans attorney confessed to the BOR off the record that she kicked Gettler.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants-TJ. This quote is not directed toward the US government which I fully support 100%. This is toward the LAPD who can not monitor itself. The consent decree should not have been lifted, ever.

I know your TTP’s, (techniques, tactics, and procedures). Any threat assessments you generate will be useless. This is simple, I know your TTP’s and PPR’s. I will mitigate any of your attempts at preservation. ORM is my friend. I will mitigate all risks, threats and hazards. I assure you that Incident Command Posts will be target rich environments. KMA-367 license plate frames are great target indicators and make target selection even easier.

I will conduct DA operations to destroy, exploit and seize designated targets. If unsuccessful or unable to meet objectives in these initial small-scale offensive actions, I will reassess my BDA and re-attack until objectives are met. I have nothing to lose. My personal casualty means nothing. Just alike AAF’s, ACM’s, and AIF’s, you can not prevail against an enemy combatant who has no fear of death. An enemy who embraces death is a lose, lose situation for their enemy combatants.

Hopefully you analyst have done your homework. You are aware that I have always been the top shot, highest score, an expert in rifle qualifications in every unit I’ve been in. I will utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordnance, and survival training I’ve been given.

Do you know why we are unsuccessful in asymmetrical and guerrilla warfare in CENTCOM theatre of operations? I’ll tell you. It’s not the inefficiency of our combatant commanders, planning, readiness or training of troops. Much like the Vietnam war, ACM, AAF, foreign fighters, Jihadist, and JAM have nothing to lose. They embrace death as it is a way of life. I simply don’t fear it. I am the walking exigent circumstance you created.

The Violence of action will be HIGH. I am the reason TAC alert was established. I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty. ISR is my strength and your weakness. You will now live the life of the prey. Your RD’s and homes away from work will be my AO and battle space. I will utilize every tool within INT collections that I learned from NMITC in Dam Neck. You have misjudged a sleeping giant. There is no conventional threat assessment for me. JAM, New Ba’ath party, 1920 rev BGE, ACM, AAF, AQAP, AQIM and AQIZ have nothing on me. Do not deploy airships or gunships. SA-7 Manpads will be waiting. As you know I also own Barrett .50′s so your APC are defunct and futile.

You better have all your officers radio/phone muster (code 1) on or off duty every hour, on the hour.
Do not attempt to shadow or conduct any type of ISR on me. I have the inventory listing of all UC vehicles at Piper Tech and the home addresses of any INT analyst at JRIC and detachment locations. My POA is always POI and always true. This will be a war of attrition and a Pyrrhic and Camdean Victory for myself. You may have the resources and manpower but you are reactive and predictable in your op plans and TTP’s. I have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving. Do not waste your time with briefs and tabletops.

(KTLA has removed the names of a number of officers out of respect for their privacy.)

Normal 'Massive Manhunt' In Los Angeles For Ex-Cop Suspected In Killings

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:54 am

A former Los Angeles police offer is the focus of a "massive manhunt" underway in that city because he's a suspect in a double murder last weekend and the shooting of three police officers early Thursday.

One of those officers has died.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "officials warned that the suspect, Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33. is armed and dangerous." He allegedly "wrote an online manifesto on his Facebook page, threatening to harm police officials and their families, law enforcement sources said. ... Law enforcement sources said police have placed security at the homes of LAPD officials named in the online documents and believe that Dorner has numerous weapons."

The Times adds that "hundreds of officers were swarming" around the site of Thursday's shootings and searching for the suspect.

Southern California Public Radio reports that:

"Authorities on Wednesday night said they were seeking Dorner as a suspect in the killings of two people, including a Cal State Fullerton basketball coach whose father represented Dorner in front of a disciplinary board when he lost his job.
"Monica Quan, 28, and her 27-year-old fiancé Keith Lawrence, who were found shot to death in their car at a parking structure Sunday night, Irvine police Chief David L. Maggard said at a news conference."
Then today:

"Three law enforcement officers were shot early Thursday morning — one in Corona and two in Riverside — by a gunman believed to be Christopher Jordan Dorner, ... police said.
"A tweet from the official Twitter account of the Riverside Police Department says that at least one of the Riverside police officers shot in that city has died."
And Southern California Public Radio adds that, "Dorner was with the department from 2002 until 2009, when he was fired for making false statements. Quan's father, Randal Quan, a former LAPD captain who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Donner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Donner at the time of his dismissal, LAPD Capt. William Hayes told The Associated Press Wednesday night."

Normal L.A. police look for ex-cop suspected in shootings

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:01 am

(CNN) -- A former Los Angeles police officer who police say has violently threatened his former colleagues shot at least two officers early Thursday, killing one, sparking a huge manhunt in Southern California, according to authorities.
Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, is also wanted in a double slaying Sunday in Irvine, California.
The California Highway Patrol issued an alert Thursday morning urging officers in several Southern California counties to be on the lookout for Dorner after the overnight shootings.
Two officers in Riverside were shot, one fatally, police there confirmed to CNN. CNN affiliate KTLA reported another officer was shot in Corona, California.
Irvine police identified Dorner on Wednesday as the suspect in the February 3 deaths of Keith Lawrence and Monica Quan in Irvine.
Dorner also has made violent threats against other Los Angeles police officers, the agency said Wednesday.
"I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty," Dorner allegedly wrote in a lengthy letter promising retribution against the department, where he worked from 2005 until 2008. An LAPD source provided the document to CNN.
The letter writer claimed he was terminated for reporting excessive force by a fellow officer, and said his attacks were retribution for his termination, as well as a culture of racism and violence he says continues within the department.
He called the attacks against police "a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name."
Los Angeles police warned people who encounter Dorner not to approach him, saying he is likely "armed and extremely dangerous."

"Our department is implementing all measures possible to ensure the safety of our LAPD personnel, their families and the Los Angeles community, and will continue to do so until Dorner is apprehended and all threats have been abated," police said in a statement.

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:06 am

I went to bed last night knowing about this man and his manifesto and that he was looking to kill named police officers and their families. He killed a lawyer's daughter and her boyfriend over the weekend, who represented him with his suit against his 'wrongful termination' from LAPD. I woke up at 6 am to this guy ambushed the three officers above, this is all over the Los Angeles News, and involves three other counties. It's been said all over the news that this is unprecedented and this guy is heavily armed.
I won't post anymore redundant articles but this is something I've never seen and the freeways are filled with rush hour traffic and we have this nut on the lose.

Normal Massive manhunt for fired LAPD officer suspected in 2 killings leads to shootings in Torrance, Redondo Beach

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:15 am

Police searching for a former LAPD Harbor Division officer sought for killing a couple in Irvine and a police officer in Riverside today were involved in two officer-involved shootings this morning in Torrance and Redondo Beach.

Details were not immediately available but undercover Los Angeles police officers were involved in a shooting in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue, and Torrance officers were involved in a shooting at Flagler Lane and Beryl Street, Torrance police Lt. Devin Chase said.

The shootings occurred about 5:30 a.m.

"Both instances are related to the investigation of the Dorner subject, but neither involve him," Chase said. "He is not in custody. To our knowledge he is not around here. There have been people who have been shot. I don't know any of the details."

Both shootings involved pickup trucks similar to the one Dorner is said to be driving, Chase said.

KTTV reported that the shootings might involve female newspaper delivery people.


A massive search is underway in Riverside, where Dorner is believed to have shot two officers, killing one. Another shooting occurred in Corona.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The news just said that police were protecting families of named officers and their families in Torrance because of the threat to their lives, two women delivering newspapers threw out newspapers in the lawn and they were shot. There's no word on their condition but this was NOT involved with Dorner. There's reports of another truck and it's occupant shot in the same area, not related. I cannot find a link to this yet but was reported five minutes ago on Good Day LA on Fox news.

Normal 3 police officers shot in Inland Empire shootings; Ex-LAPD cop sought

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 1:50 pm

THIS IS FROM A PRESS CONFERENCE BY LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT 10 MINUTES AGO.
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- A former Los Angeles police officer wanted in connection with a double murder in Irvine is being sought in the shootings of three officers Thursday. Two officers were shot in Riverside and the other was shot in Corona.

The Riverside Police Department says one of its officers was killed. The other Riverside officer underwent surgery and was reported in stable condition as of about 9 a.m., according to Riverside police.

The officer shot in Corona is with the Los Angeles Police Department. He suffered a non-life threatening wound. The LAPD says they believe the shooter is suspected gunman Christopher Jordan Dorner, a former LAPD officer wanted in connection to the double-murder of a couple in Irvine.

Authorities say Dorner wrote a multi-page manifesto in which he threatened to kill law enforcement officials and implicated himself in the Irvine murders.
According to the LAPD, two of its officers were in Corona Thursday morning to check on one of the individuals named in Dorner's manifesto when they came across a pickup truck that looked similar to Dorner's. The officers ran the license plate and found that it did not match the vehicle. They started to follow the truck when the gunman opened fire with a shoulder-weapon, like a rifle, officials said. One officer was grazed in the forehead but is expected to be OK. The officers were in a marked police vehicle and in uniform.

Riverside investigators also point to Dorner as their suspect. They said the two officers were on routine patrol when they stopped at a red light at Magnolia and Arlington avenues around 1:35 a.m. That's when they were ambushed by a gunman in a gray pickup truck.

Dorner's whereabouts are unknown, but Thursday morning, investigators expanded their search to the Las Vegas area, where Dorner has a home about 9 miles southwest of the Strip. Nevada Highway Patrol troopers are watching for Dorner and his vehicle on roads leading to the Las Vegas area from Southern California.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Dorner is believed to have tried to steal a boat from San Diego boat owner Wednesday night. He apparently botched the theft and headed to Riverside, where he is believed to have carried out the officer shootings.

Authorities say he may be driving a 2005 charcoal gray Nissan Titan pickup truck. They believe he changed his license plate from 7X03191 to 8D83987 following the Inland Empire police officer shootings.

The suspect is considered armed and extremely dangerous. A blue alert has been activated in the following counties: Kern, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside, San Diego and Imperial.

Dorner, 33, is described as an African-American man standing 6 feet tall, weighing 270 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. If seen, call 911.

Dorner named suspect in Irvine double-murder

Keith Lawrence, 27, and his fiancée Monica Quan, 28, were found fatally shot in a car in the parking lot of their apartment complex in Irvine Sunday. Irvine Police identified the suspect as Dorner, a former LAPD officer and Navy reservist.

Authorities said Dorner appears to have murdered Quan in an act of revenge against her father, Randy Quan, a former LAPD officer who retired and became an attorney.

Court documents obtained by Eyewitness News show that in August 2007, Dorner made a complaint against his field training officer accusing her of kicking a suspect. However, the LAPD Board of Rights found Dorner's complaint to be false and terminated his employment for making a false statement. The attorney representing Dorner was Randy Quan.

Dorner threatens LAPD officers in manifesto

In a manifesto obtained by Eyewitness News, Dorner says he has other targets, including commanding officers within the LAPD. In response, the LAPD deployed its elite Metropolitan Division officers to protect certain personnel and their families.

"I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty," the manifesto says.

"You may have the resources and manpower but you are reactive and predictable ... I have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving," it goes on to say. Dorner also threatens to kill any officer who attempts to arrest him.

Dorner also provides a glimpse into why he may have acted out: "I've lost a relationship with my mother and sister because of the LAPD. I've lost a relationship with close friends because of the LAPD. In essence, I've lost everything because the LAPD took my name and new (sic) I was INNOCENT!!!"

In a statement, the LAPD said, "The Department has learned that Christopher Dorner has made threats against members of the LAPD and we are taking those threats very seriously as we do all threats against our personnel and the public."

For their safety, motorcycle officers not are not being deployed and patrols will be done in two-officer units.

The LAPD confirmed that Dorner worked as one of its police officers from February 2002 to September 2008 and that his employment was terminated.

Mistaken identity shooting in Torrance

Los Angeles police said two uninvolved civilians were shot and wounded when officers mistook their car as Dorner's vehicle in Torrance at about 5:15 a.m. Thursday. Chief Beck said officers got word of a car similar to Dorner's traveling on Redbeam Avenue, which is an area on heightened patrol due to Dorner's manifesto and the Inland Empire police officer shootings.


A bullet-riddled blue pickup truck with newspapers on the ground on the passenger's side of the truck was parked at the scene. Beck said one injured civilian suffered a minor bullet wound, and the second civilian was shot twice and reported in stable condition.

About two blocks away, authorities were also investigating another incident in which a black Honda pickup truck appeared to have been involved in a crash with a Torrance police vehicle. There appeared to be three bullet holes in the windshield. It was unclear if or how that was related to the Dorner case.

Anyone with information on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] whereabouts was asked to contact Irvine police at (949) 724-7000 or Los Angeles police at (877) LAPD-24-7.

Holy CRAP!!

Why would he write that on FB?? Couldn't they try tracking him down by his IP address? Although he is probably not even in California anymore for all we know.

This is a very scary situation for anyone in California..especially LA..Raine and anyone reading these posts (thank you, Raine!!) please be extra careful!!

Christopher Dorner Manhunt: Former LAPD Officer Attempted to Flee Country Before Allegedly Shooting Cops

By DAVID WRIGHT, KEVIN DOLAK and JOSH HASKELL | Good Morning America – 2 hours 23 minutes ago

The fired ex-California cop who set off a region-wide manhunt after allegedly shooting three police officers this morning -- one fatally -- had initially gone to a yacht club near San Diego where police say he attempted to steal a boat and flee to Mexico.

Police say that former police officer Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, who officials believe posted an online manifesto outlining his plan to "terminate" his former colleagues and their families, is armed with a long gun and might have several other guns and high-capacity magazines. He is also believed to have access to military uniforms because he has served in the Navy.

"We are considering him armed and dangerous," Lt. Julia Engen of the Irvine Police Department said.

Police allege that he went to the yacht club Wednesday night at Point Loma, Calif., near San Diego to steal the boat. He aborted the attempted theft when the boat's propeller became entangled in a rope, law enforcement officials said. It was at that point he is believed to have headed to Riverside, where he allegedly shot two police officers.

"He pointed a handgun at the victim [at the yacht club] and demanded the boat," Lt. David Rohowits of the San Diego Police Department said.

Police say the rifle marksman shot at four officers in two incidents overnight, hitting three of them: one in Corona, Calif., and the two in Riverside, Calif.

Sgt. Rudy Lopez of the LAPD said two LAPD officers were in Corona and headed out on special detail to check on one of the individuals named in Dorner's manifesto. Dorner allegedly grazed one of them but missed the other.

"[This is an] extremely tense situation," Lopez said. "We call this a manhunt. We approach it cautiously because of the propensity of what has already happened."

The Riverside Police Department said two of its officers were shot before one of them died, KABC-TV reported. The other is in stable condition with two gunshot wounds, police say.

"They were on routine patrol stopped at a stop light when they were ambushed," Lt. Guy Toussant of the Riverside police department said.

In the manifesto Dorner published online, he threatened at least 12 people by name, along with their families.

"Your lack of ethics and conspiring to wrong a just individual are over. Suppressing the truth will leave to deadly consequences for you and your family," Dorner wrote in his manifesto.

A badge and identification belonging to Dorner have been found in San Diego, according to San Diego police Sgt. Ray Battrick. Dorner's LAPD badge and ID were found by someone near the city's airport, and turned in to police overnight, The Associated Press reported.

Police around Southern California are wearing tactical gear, including helmets and guns across their chests. The light-up signs along California highways show the license plate number of Dorner's car, and say to call 911 if it is seen. The problem, police say, is that they believe Dorner is switching license plates on his car, a 2005 charcoal-gray Nissan Titan pickup truck.

Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck said today that 40 protective details have been deployed to protect officers and their families.

"We are taking all measures possible to ensure safety of our officers and their families," he said.

Dorner is also believed to be responsible for the weekend slayings of an assistant women's college basketball coach and her fiancé in what cops believe are acts of revenge against the LAPD, as suggested in his online manifesto.
Lawrence was found slumped behind the wheel of his white Kia in the parking lot of their upscale apartment complex in Irvine Sunday and Quan was in the passenger seat.

"A particular interest at this point in the investigation is a multi-page manifesto in which the suspect has implicated himself in the slayings," Maggard said.

Police said Dorner's manifesto included threats against members of the LAPD. Police say they are taking extra measures to ensure the safety of officers and their families.

The document, allegedly posted on an Internet message board this week, apparently blames Quan's father, retired LAPD Capt. Randy Quan, for his firing from the department.

One passage from the manifesto reads, "I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty."

"I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own," it reads. "I'm terminating yours."

Dorner was with the department from 2005 until 2008, when he was fired for making false statements.

Randy Quan, who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Dorner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Dorner at the time of his dismissal, LAPD Capt. William Hayes told The Associated Press Wednesday night.

According to documents from a court of appeals hearing in October 2011, Dorner was fired from the LAPD after he made a complaint against his field-training officer, Sgt. Teresa Evans, saying in the course of an arrest she had kicked a suspect who was a schizophrenic with severe dementia.

After an investigation, Dorner was fired for making false statements.

"We have strong cause to believe Dorner is armed and dangerous," Maggard said.

Donner was also a Navy reservist who'd just finished his military career as a lieutenant Friday. His only overseas deployment was to a Navy base in Bahrain. He also received a Rifle Marksman Ribbon and Pistol Expert Medal, meaning he received superior scores when he tested at the range.

A Navy official confirms Naval Base Point Loma is on lockdown.

Police say Dorner is black, 6-feet tall and weighs 270 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, and believed to be driving the Nissan pickup truck.

Meanwhile, Cal State-Fullerton is still mourning the loss of their beloved assistant coach.

"There are really no words to convey the sadness that our program feels, that the young women who have had the privilege of working with such a bright and passionate woman," head coach Marcia Foster said earlier this week. "I want to especially send out condolences to Randal and Sylvia Quan, and her brother Ryan."

After college, Quan coached at Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks and has spent the past two years as an assistant coach at Cal State-Fullerton. The university has posted a memorial page on its sports website dedicated to Quan.

Lawrence was a business graduate who recently started working as a public-safety officer at USC.

Normal Truck Linked To Riverside Cop Killer Possibly Found Near Big Bear

Post by raine1953 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 5:37 pm

BIG BEAR (CBSLA.com) — A burned-out truck matching the description of a getaway vehicle owned by triple-murder suspect Christopher Dorner was found in the San Bernardino mountains Thursday.

The Nissan Titan, found on a dirt service road between Bear Mountain and Snow Summit resorts, was spotted around 8:35 a.m., approximately seven hours after Dorner fired at three officers, killing one and critically injuring another in Riverside, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials said.

Dorner, 33, is also wanted by Irvine police in the murder of an engaged couple on Feb. 4.


San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies are on the scene. Authorities have not confirmed that the truck belongs to Dorner or if he has been spotted in the immediate area.

The Bear Valley Unified School District has been placed on lockdown.

“As a precautionary measure we have called a district-wide lock down of all our facilities at 12:25 pm. We don’t believe there is an immediate danger we do this as a precaution for the safety of our students and staff,” Assistant Superintendent Walter Con said in a statement.

Bear Mountain Ski Resort is also closed while authorities are using the parking lot as a command post.

Snow Summit remained open to the public.

No additional details were released.

All people need to know about the ex-LAPD cop on the loose is that he is an armed and extremely dangerous psychopath who may choose anyone to kill next. He is a spree killer and has nothing to lose at the point. We don't need to get inside his mind or read his manifesto; he is a typical psychopath who blames others for his own failures in life and is getting back at society through violence.

Normal Dorner Was Frequent Visitor at Ex-Wife’s House

Post by Nama on Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:33 am

Former LAPD officers Christopher Dorner was briefly married in 2007.

According to documents filed with the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, the pair was married from April 27 to May 24, 2007.

A neighbor of Dorner’s ex-wife recalls seeing the suspect at the woman’s Long Beach home.

“I’ve seen him here. I’ve said hi, I’ve bumped [fists] with him a couple times,” said 24-year-old Oscar Gonzalez told the L.A. Times.

“He seemed like a regular guy. He was doing landscaping here in the front for her. He was heavy-built, always in military-style boots,” Gonzalez said.

But Dorner’s frequent visits ended last year.

“He was here for a while, and then he was just gone. It just kind of stopped all of the sudden, two or three months ago,” Gonzalez told the newspaper.

Normal Ex-LA cop, murder suspect sent CNN anchor parcel

Post by Nama on Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:46 am

I saw Anderson Cooper talking about this and showing what was in the parcel tonight on CNN.

Law enforcement officials are inspecting a package CNN’s Anderson Cooper received from a former Los Angeles police officer who allegedly killed three in a shooting spree.
CNN spokeswoman Shimrit Sheetrit said Thursday that a parcel containing a note, a DVD and a bullet hole-riddled memento were sent by Christopher Dorner and addressed to Cooper’s office.
LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith says LAPD robbery-homicide detectives will inspect the package for clues.
The package arrived Feb. 1, days before the first two killings Dorner is accused of.
It contained a note on it that read, in part, “I never lied.”
Dorner was fired from the LAPD in 2008 for making false statements.
A coin typically given out as a souvenir by the police chief was also in the package, and riddled with bullet holes.

The bad thing is he is a good looking guy! Bad in the sense of the word that I bet he didn't have a hard time getting a first date at least!
OMG I just pray he's dead already or the cops get him tonight. A bomb threat was called into the Federal Bldg tonight on the Westside. I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't related to him just so lots of man power would be tied up trying to find out if it's bogus or not. Gives him time to go murder cops or whoever again!!!!!

Christopher Dorner reportedly sent a package to Anderson Cooper on February 1, though the CNN host was not aware of its existence until Thursday.
Blitzer explained that Dorner “reached out directly to CNN.” He added, “The package arrived on the first of February and was opened by Cooper’s assistant.”

The package contained a hand-labeled DVD with a yellow Post-It note that read, in part, “I never lied.” The statement appears to refer to the reason Dorner was fired. He also sent a coin wrapped in duct tape.

The coin was inscribed with, “Thanks but no thanks, Will Bratton” (former LAPD chief) and “IMOA” (Imagine a More Open America). The coin is typically given as an LAPD souvenir and was sported several bullet holes.
The Los Angeles Times notes that Cooper appeared on the show with Blitzer to talk about the package as well. The CNN host stated:

“The staff, my staff at ’360′ and CNN management and myself were made aware of the package just today. And upon, obviously, learning this exists, we alerted Mr. Bratton and law enforcement … It’s a very strange thing.”

Normal Dorner’s Ex-Wife Was Reportedly ‘Embarrassed’ By Brief Marriage

Post by Nama on Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:54 am

The ex-wife of the former LAPD officer accused in the revenge killings of an Irvine couple and the slaying of a Riverside policeman was reportedly “embarrassed” by their brief marriage.

CBS2/KCAL9’s Cristy Fajardo spoke with the brother of April Carter, who was married to fugitive Christopher Dorner for a few weeks nearly six years ago.

According to documents filed with the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, the pair was married from April 27 to May 24, 2007.

Carter’s brother told Fajardo that he never met or saw Dorner, but said his sister was married to a man for about “eight hours.”

He said his sister, who may be employed with law enforcement, was so embarrassed by it all, she never spoke of it.

Carter’s neighbors in Long Beach said they had a vague recollection of seeing someone matching Dorner’s description years ago.

Normal Massive manhunt under way for suspected cop shooter

Post by raine1953 on Fri Feb 08, 2013 2:48 am

From the latest presser at 9 pm.
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- A massive manhunt is under way for former Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Jordan Dorner in connection with a double murder in Irvine and the shootings of three police officers on Thursday.

Dorner is supected of shooting two officers in Riverside, killing one and injuring the other, who underwent surgery and was reported to be in stable condition early Thursday, according to Riverside Police. Dorner is also suspected of shooting and wounding a LAPD officer in Corona.

According to the LAPD, Dorner is likely also responsible for killing a couple in Irvine.

Authorities say Dorner wrote a multi-page manifesto in which he threatened to kill law enforcement officials and implicated himself in the Irvine slayings.

Suspect truck found burned in Big Bear

In a 3:30 p.m. news conference in the Big Bear area, San Bernardino County Assistant Sheriff John McMahon confirmed a burning pickup truck discovered earlier in the day is Dorner's Nissan Titan. It was confirmed by its vehicle identification number. The truck was unoccupied. Authorities said Dorner likely changed the Nissan's license plate following the Inland Empire shootings and before abandoning the truck.

McMahon said authorities were searching the wooded area around where the truck was found, as well as going door to door to check on occupied and unoccupied residences and structures. There are about 400 residences in the area.

McMahon said law enforcement personnel from Los Angeles and Riverside as well as the FBI were assisting the search. He said at least 15 to 20 additional officers would be patrolling the community around the clock until further notice. Roadway checkpoints were also set up in the area. Civilian aircraft were forbidden from flying in the area during the search.

At a 5:30 p.m. news conference, McMahon told reporters that tracks were found near the vehicle and were followed, but they did not lead to the suspect. He said snow on the ground was helpful in the search, and that dogs being used in the search were not affected by the weather and ground conditions.

McMahon said about 125 law enforcement officers were involved in the search, including tracking in the woods and going door to door in the community. He said the search would continue "as long as we can, weather permitting."

San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department is the lead during this part of investigation, McMahon said.

All schools and facilities in the Big Bear Valley Unified School District were locked down due to the police activity surrounding the vehicle. Assistant Superintendent Walter Con said officials do not fear any immediate danger, but the schools were locked down as a precaution. Bear Mountain Resort was closed down for the rest of the day as a precaution by request of authorities.

In a 9 p.m. news conference, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Spokeswoman Cindy Bachman said schools were expected to reopen Friday morning. The ski resort was also expected to reopen Friday morning.

Bachman said there were no reports of any sightings of the suspect. Nor stolen vehicles were reported in the area.

Bachman advised local residents not to answer their door unless they know they visitor, or if the visitor is a uniformed law enforcement official.

Bachman said the search would continue into the night. Dogs and helicopters with infrared cameras were part of the search.

Corona shooting

Earlier Thursday, two LAPD officers were in Corona to check on one of the individuals named in Dorner's manifesto when they came across a pickup truck that looked similar to Dorner's. The officers ran the license plate and found that it did not match the vehicle.

They started to follow the truck when the gunman opened fire with a shoulder-weapon, like a rifle, officials said. One officer was grazed in the forehead but was expected to be OK. The officers were in a marked police vehicle and in uniform. The incident took place near the Magnolia Avenue off-ramp of the northbound I-15.

Riverside shooting

Riverside investigators also point to Dorner as their suspect. Police say about 20 minutes after the Corona incident, two Riverside officers were on routine patrol when they stopped at a red light at Magnolia and Arlington avenues around 1:35 a.m. They were ambushed by a gunman in a gray pickup truck.

A 34-year-old training officer, an 11-year veteran of the force, was killed. The wounded 27-year-old officer is expected to make a full recovery. The names of these officers were not immediately released as a safety precaution to protect their families, said Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz at a late-morning news conference.

Statewide manhunt

Dorner's whereabouts are unknown, but Thursday morning, investigators expanded their search to the Las Vegas area, where Dorner has a home about 9 miles southwest of the Strip. Nevada Highway Patrol troopers are watching for Dorner and his vehicle on roads leading to the Las Vegas area from Southern California.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Dorner is believed to have tried to steal a boat from San Diego boat owner Wednesday night. He apparently botched the theft and headed to Riverside, where he is believed to have carried out the officer shootings.

The suspect is considered armed and extremely dangerous. A blue alert has been activated in the following counties: Kern, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside, San Diego and Imperial.

Dorner, 33, is described as an African-American man standing 6 feet tall, weighing 270 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. If seen, call 911.

Dorner named suspect in Irvine double-murder

Keith Lawrence, 27, and his fiancée Monica Quan, 28, were found fatally shot in a car in the parking lot of their apartment complex in Irvine Sunday night. Irvine Police identified the suspect as Dorner, a former LAPD officer and Navy reservist.

Authorities said Dorner appears to have murdered Quan in an act of revenge against her father, Randy Quan, a former LAPD officer who retired and became an attorney.

Court documents obtained by Eyewitness News show that in August 2007, Dorner made a complaint against his field training officer, accusing her of kicking a suspect. However, the LAPD Board of Rights found Dorner's complaint to be false and terminated his employment for making a false statement. The attorney representing Dorner was Randy Quan.

Dorner threatens LAPD officers in manifesto

In a manifesto obtained by Eyewitness News, Dorner says he has other targets, including commanding officers within the LAPD. In response, the LAPD deployed its elite Metropolitan Division officers to protect certain personnel and their families.

Ex-LAPD Officer Chris Dorner manifesto: Read it now

"I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty," the manifesto says.

"You may have the resources and manpower but you are reactive and predictable ... I have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving," it goes on to say. Dorner also threatens to kill any officer who attempts to arrest him.

Dorner also provides a glimpse into why he may have acted out: "I've lost a relationship with my mother and sister because of the LAPD. I've lost a relationship with close friends because of the LAPD. In essence, I've lost everything because the LAPD took my name and new [sic] I was INNOCENT!!!"In a statement, the LAPD said, "The Department has learned that Christopher Dorner has made threats against members of the LAPD and we are taking those threats very seriously as we do all threats against our personnel and the public."

Police sent personnel to protect at least 40 families related to officers specifically named in Dorner's manifesto.

For their safety, motorcycle officers are not being deployed and patrols will be done in two-officer units.

The LAPD confirmed that Dorner worked as one of its police officers from February 2002 to September 2008 and that his employment was terminated.

Mistaken identity shooting in Torrance

Los Angeles Police said two uninvolved civilians were shot and wounded when officers mistook their car as Dorner's vehicle in Torrance at about 5:15 a.m. Thursday. Chief Beck said officers got word of a car similar to Dorner's traveling on Redbeam Avenue, which is an area on heightened patrol due to Dorner's manifesto and the Inland Empire police officer shootings.

A bullet-riddled blue pickup truck with newspapers on the ground on the passenger's side of the truck was parked at the scene. Beck said one injured civilian suffered a minor bullet wound, and the second civilian was shot twice and reported in stable condition. The individuals are two women who were reportedly delivering newspapers.

About two blocks away, authorities were also investigating another incident in which a black Honda pickup truck appeared to have been involved in a crash with a Torrance police vehicle. There appeared to be three bullet holes in the windshield. It was unclear if or how that was related to the Dorner case.

Anyone with information on Dorner's whereabouts or further details about the case is asked to contact Irvine OPolice at (949) 724-7000 or Los Angeles Police at (877) LAPD-24-7. If you see Dorner, you are urged to call 911 immediately.

Christopher Dorner sees himself as a crusader, a 6-foot, 270-pound whistleblower who confronted racism early in life and believes he suffered in his career and personal life for challenging injustices from bigotry to dishonesty.
He fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a Los Angeles police officer in 2005, but saw it unravel three years later when he was fired after a police review board decided he falsely accused his training officer of kicking a mentally ill man in the face and chest. The incident led Dorner to plot violent revenge against those he believed responsible for his downfall, according to a 14-page manifesto police believe he authored because there are details in it only he would know.

Police say Dorner began carrying out that plot last weekend when he killed a woman whose father had represented him as he fought to keep his job. On Thursday — the eighth anniversary of his first day on the job with the LAPD — Dorner ambushed two officers, killing one, authorities said.

Also killed was the woman's fiance, whose body was found along with hers in a parked car near the recently engaged couple's condominium.

"I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days," the manifesto reads. "You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen."
David Pighin, a neighbor of Dorner in the Orange County community of La Palma, said the ex-officer kept to himself and left his house and his black Nissan Titan, outfitted with tinted windows and custom rims, impeccably clean.

"There wasn't a scratch on it," Pighin said. "I would see him getting out of his truck and walk straight into the house."

Dorner has no children and court records show his wife filed for divorce in 2007, though there's no evidence one was granted. Pighin believed Dorner lived with his mother and possibly his sister. On Wednesday night, Pighin saw a white van with two armed SWAT officers in front of Dorner's house and later learned about the manhunt.
"We were completely shocked," he said. "This is a good family that appeared to be really nice people. They were really admired in the neighborhood."

The 33-year-old Dorner graduated in 2001 from Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah, school officials said, where he majored in political science and had an unremarkable career as a reserve running back on the football team.

A friend from those days, Jamie Usera, told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/Xpjawr ) that he saw no red flags. The two would have friendly debates about the extent of racism in the U.S. and take trips into the Utah desert to hunt rabbits, Usera told the newspaper.
"He was a typical guy. I liked him an awful lot," said Usera, who's now an attorney in Salem, Ore. "Nothing about him struck me as violent or irrational in any way. He was opinionated, but always seemed level-headed."
In addition to police work, Dorner served in the Naval Reserves, earning a rifle marksman ribbon and pistol expert medal. He served in a naval undersea warfare unit and various aviation training units, according to military records, and took a leave from the LAPD and deployed to Bahrain in 2006 and 2007.

His last day with the Navy was Friday.

"I will utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordinance and survival training I've been given," the manifesto reads. "You have misjudged a sleeping giant."
Police were providing more than 40 protection details for people they determined at high risk after Dorner warned in his manifesto that their families would be harmed.
"I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own. I'm terminating yours," the manifesto says.
In the document, Dorner rails against the hypocrisy of black police commanders who crack down on their white subordinates and catalogues his experiences with racism and injustice, beginning with a schoolyard fight at his Christian elementary school and ending with the disciplinary process that led to his dismissal from the LAPD in 2008.

Dorner recalls that he beat up a fellow student who called him a racial slur on the playground while in the first grade. The principal punished the student, but also chastised Dorner for not turning the other cheek, "as Jesus did."
"That day I made a life decisions that I will not tolerate racial derogatory terms spoken to me," he wrote.

He also recalls sticking up for a fellow cadet in the police academy when other recruits sang Hitler youth songs and taunted the man, who was the son of a Holocaust survivor, and placing another recruit in a choke hold after the man used a racial slur and refused to stop when Dorner objected.

In the latter instance, Dorner filed a complaint against two of his fellow recruits, but only one of the men was disciplined and it left him bitter, according to court records. He would later tell a colleague the LAPD was corroded by the racism of some of its officers.

Dorner graduated and served for only four months in the field before being deployed to the Middle East in 2006 and 2007. When he returned, he was assigned to a training officer, Sgt. Teresa Evans, who became increasingly alarmed at his conduct, according a summary of an interview with Evans in Dorner's disciplinary file.

The burly man with tattoos on his biceps repeatedly asked why he was not sent to reintegration training after his return from war and on one occasion, began weeping in the patrol car and demanded to be taken back to the police academy to be retrained, court documents show.
Dorner also told Evans he was building a house in Las Vegas and intended to sue the department after his probationary period was over — a conversation Evans reported to a superior.

Evans began collecting examples of "deficiencies" in Dorner's police work — including talking to a suspect on a "man with a gun" call without taking cover. After much prodding, Evans recounts, Dorner told her he "might have some issues regarding his deployment."

On Aug. 4, 2007, Evans warned Dorner that she would give him an unsatisfactory rating and request that he be removed from the field unless he improved.

Six days later, Dorner reported to internal affairs that in the course of an arrest Evans had kicked a severely mentally ill man in the chest and left cheek. His report came two weeks after the arrest, police and court records allege.

Three civilian witnesses and a harbor policeman all said they didn't see Evans kick the man, who had a quarter-inch scratch on his cheek consistent with his fall into a bush. The police review board ruled against Dorner, leading to his dismissal.

"The delay in reporting the alleged misconduct, coupled with the witnesses' statements, irreparably destroy Dorner's credibility and bring into question his suitability for continued employment as a police officer," the file reads.

Evans could not be reached for comment. Eric Rose, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the officers' union, declined to comment on the case or on Dorner.

As a result, he lost everything, including his relationships with his mother, sister and close friends, he wrote in his manifesto.

"Self-preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death as I died long ago," he writes. "I was told by my mother that sometimes bad things happen to good people. I refuse to accept that."

Ex-cop manhunt: Deputies investigating reported sighting in San Diego

February 8, 2013 | 4:13 am

San Diego sheriff's deputies continued to search near a Lakeside area home early Friday after a reported sighting of fugitive ex-police officer Christopher Dorner, and are now investigating whether the call was a hoax.

A cell phone call about 10:20 p.m. Thursday prompted deputies to respond to a home near the Barona Indian Reservation, said sheriff's Lt. Jason Rothlein. Authorities were still at the scene about 3:30 a.m. Friday.

The caller initially reported a suspicious person, Rothlein said, but later changed and embellished the story, claiming there were gang members in the area, then saying the suspicious person was the caller's brother. The caller then said the suspicious person was a man wanted for murder, was someone on the news, and finally claimed the reported person was Dorner.

Authorities have found no sign of the wanted man, Rothlein said.

"The deputies that are on scene have no indication Dorner was, is or has even been at that residence," Rothlein said.

Still, deputies will continue to search the area "out of due diligence," he said.

"There's a particular sensitivity here. Obviously it's not something we can go and overlook," Rothlein said. "Having a waste of resources over a hoax — if that is in fact what this is — is a horrible waste of our time."

Dorner, 33, is wanted in connection with a double homicide in Irvine on Sunday and the shooting of three police officers, one fatally, in Riverside County on Thursday. Authorities described him as "armed and extremely dangerous," and alerts about him were issued across the state and in Nevada as federal, state and local authorities intensified their search.

Authorities said they found a rambling manifesto published on what they believe is Dorner's Facebook page that threatened "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against police and named at least 40 officers and others.

Authorities spent much of Thursday scouring Big Bear after Dorner's pickup was found burning on a forest road. About 125 officers followed fresh tracks leading from the vehicle and conducted door-to-door searches in the mountain community, but lost Dorner's trail.

Dorner was also traced to the San Diego area in recent days. Authorities believe he is connected to an attempted boat theft at the Southwestern Yacht Club in Point Loma early Thursday morning, when he allegedly held an 81-year-old boat owner at gunpoint, tied him up and tried to steal the boat to flee to Mexico.

When that attempt was thwarted by mechanical difficulties, he apparently drove north to Riverside County, where the police officers were attacked.

At about 2 a.m. Thursday, a citizen reported finding property belonging to Dorner on a street near Lindbergh Field, not far from the scene of the attempted boat theft. The property included a briefcase and Dorner's LAPD badge.

Navy officials also confirmed that Dorner had checked into the motel at Naval Base Point Loma on Tuesday, using military identification. He did not check out, but Lt. Joseph Ramos said Dorner had not been seen in the area later Thursday despite reports that he was still at the motel.

Big Bear locked down amid manhunt

Resort endures an anxious night with suspect in multiple slayings at large.

By Joe Serna, Kate Mather and Monte Morin, Los Angeles Times
February 8, 2013

The bustling winter resort of Big Bear took on the appearance of a ghost town Thursday as surveillance aircraft buzzed overhead and police in tactical gear and carrying rifles patrolled mountain roads in convoys of SUVs, while others stood guard along major intersections.

Even before authorities had confirmed that the torched pickup truck discovered on a quiet forest road belonged to suspected gunman Christopher Dorner, 33, officials had ordered an emergency lockdown of local businesses, homes and the town's popular ski resorts. Parents were told to pick up their children from school, as rolling yellow buses might pose a target to an unpredictable fugitive on the run.

By nightfall, many residents had barricaded their doors as they prepared for a long, anxious evening.

"We're all just stressed," said Andrea Burtons as she stocked up on provisions at a convenience store. "I have to go pick up my brother and get him home where we're safe."

Police ordered the lockdown about 9:30 a.m. as authorities throughout Southern California launched an immense manhunt for the former lawman, who is accused of killing three people as part of a long-standing grudge against the LAPD. Dorner is believed to have penned a long, angry manifesto on Facebook saying that he was unfairly fired from the force and was now seeking vengeance.

Forest lands surrounding Big Bear Lake are cross-hatched with fire roads and trails leading in all directions, and the snow-capped mountains can provide both cover and extreme challenges to a fugitive on foot. It was unclear whether Dorner was prepared for such rugged terrain.

Footprints were found leading from Dorner's burned pickup truck into the snow off Forest Road 2N10 and Club View Drive in Big Bear Lake.

San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said that although authorities had deployed 125 officers for tracking and door-to-door searches, officers had to be mindful that the suspect may have set a trap.

"Certainly. There's always that concern and we're extremely careful and we're worried about this individual," McMahon said. "We're taking every precaution we can."

Big Bear has roughly 400 homes, but authorities guessed that only 40% are occupied year-round.

The search will probably play out with the backdrop of a winter storm that is expected to hit the area after midnight.

Up to 6 inches of snow could blanket local mountains, the National Weather Service said.

Gusts up to 50 mph could hit the region, said National Weather Service meteorologist Mark Moede, creating a wind-chill factor of 15 to 20 degrees.

Extra patrols were brought in to check vehicles coming and going from Big Bear, McMahon said, but no vehicles had been reported stolen.

"He could be anywhere at this point," McMahon said. When asked if the burned truck was a possible diversion, McMahon replied: "Anything's possible."

Dorner had no known connection to the area, authorities said.

Craig and Christine Winnegar, of Murrieta, found themselves caught up in the lockdown by accident. Craig brought his wife to Big Bear as a surprise to celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary. Their prearranged dinner was canceled when restaurant owners closed their doors out of fear.

"It's definitely scary," Christine Winnegar said.

The couple's children had been texting them throughout the day with updates. They worried that the gunman might come to Murrieta. "I said no, no, you guys are fine," Christine Winnegar said. "He's actually up here with us."

As Craig Winnegar was sipping a hot chocolate, he said they planned to stay even with the manhunt underway.

"It certainly will be a memorable anniversary."

Behind the counter of Triangle Market in Big Bear City, clerk Robert Caballos said that unlike many other folks in the area, he wasn't worried for his safety.

"I mean, I heard he's going after cops, right?" he said.

Others promised a quick resolution to the matter if they were put in charge.

"I did 12 years in the Marine Corps, man," said Dennis Pollock.

"Give me a sniper rifle, some gear and point me in his general direction and get out of my way," he said.

Authorities said the search will continue overnight and, if the weather holds, schools, business and ski resorts will reopen Friday.

It took only a couple of passes by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department helicopter for Dean Johnson to go outside and see what all the fuss was about.

As the chopper whizzed by another six times or so, Johnson began filming.

"Oh my God he's going to land on that golf course!" he recalled thinking.

Once the chopper landed, SWAT officers poured out of the aircraft. Soon the snow-covered neighborhood was crawling with police and federal agents.

Johnson thought it was a drill, but soon after police streamed through the area, his neighbors told him what they'd heard: Dorner was believed to be in the area.

Dorner, who was fired from the LAPD in 2009, is suspected of killing a young Irvine couple last Sunday, assistant college basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiance, Keith Lawrence, a USC safety officer.

Quan's father had been an LAPD captain, and a subject of Dorner's wrath in the manifesto police say he wrote.

Late Wednesday and on into Thursday, Dorner allegedly went on a violent rampage, shooting three police officers in Riverside County, one of whom died.

Down the the mountain from the ski resort community Thursday night, Pat Halpin, 55, stood quietly outside Riverside City Hall at a prayer vigil honoring the as-yet-unidentified 34-year-old police officer who was ambushed and killed earlier in the day.

Authorities say Dorner was the gunman.

"I came to grieve for the family and the officer and to support my city," Halpin said.

"I know times like this it's difficult to experience peace, but Lord when you're with us, we can," said Police Chaplain Steve Ballinger, who began the vigil with a prayer.

Afterward, the crowd broke into several small groups, some hugging, some praying, some crying.

Morris Mendoza, 65, lit a candle.

"I'm a born Riversider, I care what happens here," Mendoza said. "We all share in the grief and pain."

Mendoza's sister, Cindy Collins, said her son knew the slain officer. He was married, she said, and well-respected. "How can one officer do that to another officer? Whether you're on the force or not, you don't do that."

Halpin agreed. It was a depth of rage that he could not understand. "This thing has been brewing in him for years," he said.

Such violence, he said, seemed to be becoming more common.

"What is wrong with the world? We must not be doing something right."

Normal Christopher Dorner manhunt impeded by snow in Big Bear

Post by raine1953 on Fri Feb 08, 2013 12:29 pm

This is from the 9 am presser in Big Bear.

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (KABC) -- The manhunt for suspected cop killer Christopher Dorner continues Friday, but snow in the Big Bear area is making the search difficult.

Overnight, investigators had to ground their helicopter crew because they could not continue their search efforts through the fog and building snow storm. Ground efforts carried on, but it the frigid conditions are not making things any easier.

More than 100 law enforcement officers are conducting a door-to-door search of homes in the area. Sheriff's officials say they have two-man teams searching nearly 400 homes, but they're also warning residents not to open their doors unless they know the person or they see a uniformed law enforcement officer on the other side of their doors.

The only clue the Dorner was even in the Big Bear area was the discovery of his Nissan truck. The vehicle was found along a U.S. Forest Service road Thursday on fire. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department later confirmed the truck belongs to Dorner.

That discovery brought local, state and federal law enforcement swarming to the ski resort community. Investigators say they found some snow tracks near the truck, but they did not lead anywhere specific. The search shut down Bear Mountain Ski Resort and placed local schools on lockdown. All Bear Valley Unified schools are closed Friday as a precaution due to the ongoing search.

The 33-year-old former Los Angeles police officer triggered this massive manhunt Thursday after allegedly opening fire on three officers and killing one.

The chain of events began Sunday after an Irvine couple, Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence, were found shot to death inside a car in the parking garage of their apartment complex. Quan is the daughter of a LAPD captain who represented Dorner during disciplinary hearings, which resulted in his dismissal from the department.

Dorner implicated himself in the weekend retaliation murders in a multi-page manifesto, which also included his intent to restore his reputation by exacting revenge on specific officers he felt had a part in his firing.

Normal LOCK DOWN at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility at 450 Bauchet St

Post by Nama on Fri Feb 08, 2013 2:27 pm

The Los Angeles Police Department on Friday canceled and then reinstated a tactical alert aimed at protecting police officers and their loved ones from suspected cop killer Christopher Dorner.

Earlier in the day, the LAPD had canceled the alert, stating it had enough resources to keep its staffers safe. However, for reasons that weren't immediately clear, the department reinstated the alert sometime before 11 a.m.

The move came about the same time the department announed a modified lockdown at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility at 450 Bauchet St. amid reports that someone matching Dorner's description was seen in the area. Police closed the street directly in front of the facility and were not allowing anyone in or out of the arraignment center.

As the manhunt continues for Dorner, the LAPD is taking no chances when it comes to protecting officers and their families. As part of the tactical alert, no motorcycle officers will be on duty and officers must pair up, and work longer shifts.

Police presence grew Friday at the police headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Some officers even showed up with riot gear and flak jackets. Police patrols also increased, but it was unclear how many officers were involved.

"It's extremely, extremely manpower intensive, but the safety of my employees -- people that come on the job to protect the lives of strangers -- is of utmost importance to me, and I will expend any resources necessary," said Police Chief Charlie Beck.

Normal "very possible" it was not Dorner

Post by Nama on Fri Feb 08, 2013 2:32 pm

The Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles went on lockdown, and an area search launched, after a civilian employee reported to her supervisor about 8:45 a.m. that she saw "somebody outside who resembled suspect Dorner," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Steve Whitmore said.

"Out of a preponderance of caution, we locked down the facility as well as the streets in front," Whitmore said.

Officials continued trying to identify the person the civilian jail employee saw, Whitmore said, but added it was "very possible" it was not Dorner.

Christopher Dorner Manhunt: Search For Ex-Cop Suspected Of Killing 3 Covers California

By GREG RISLING and TAMI ABDOLLAH 02/08/13 08:47 PM ET EST

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. -- Authorities hunting for an ex-Los Angeles police officer suspected of three killings have wrapped up a four-hour search of his mother's Orange County home.

Irvine police Lt. Bill Whalen says his department and U.S. marshals removed 10 paper grocery bags of evidence from the home Friday in La Palma. He didn't elaborate.

Computer forensics lab technicians removed five items as evidence.

Whalen says Dorner used to live at the home, but nothing indicates he's been there recently. Dorner's mother and sister cooperated with the search.

Dorner is suspected in a spree of violence as revenge for being fired from the Los Angeles force.

A former LAPD captain's daughter and her fiance were killed in Irvine last weekend. A pair of shootings Thursday killed one officer and wounded two others.

That's the latest one I could find by googling his name. Haven't done a google alert bc I know I w/get too many that say the same thing. Hope that makes sense.

Am really starting to wonder if he is even IN California anymore. He was highly trained..he could be anywhere by now.

Normal Christopher Dorner Alleged That Threat by Girlfriend Left Him "In Fear For My Life". The former LAPD officer is the subject of a regionwide manhunt after he allegedly began a revenge-motivated shooting spree against police officers and their families.

By Patrick Healy | Friday, Feb 8, 2013 | Updated 10:44 PM PST

As Christopher Dorner was becoming increasingly alienated from the LAPD, he was also involved in three personal relationships that ended with legal actions. He was married in 2007, but it was dissolved 19 days later. A year later, another relationship ended with a restraining order. Patrick Healy reports from Southwest LA for the NBC4 News at 6 p.m. on Feb. 8, 2013.

As he was becoming increasingly alienated from the LAPD, then-officer Christopher Dorner was involved in three personal relationships that ended with legal actions, court records reveal.

In 2006, a woman he had dated went to the website DontDateHimGirl.com and posted an entry on Dorner, describing him as "severely emotionally and mentally disturbed."

A copy of the posting was including in court documents filed by Dorner in Orange County when he sought a restraining order against the woman. It was denied.

In April 2007, Dorner married a Los Angeles deputy sheriff. The certificate was issued in Clark County, Nevada. But after 19 days, they submitted a joint petition for dissolution.

A year later, Dorner became involved with a fellow LAPD officer, according to a protective order application he filed in 2012.

Dorner alleged that after he broke off the relationship, he learned the woman attempted to access his credit union account online. The issue came up again in the online manifesto Dorner published on his Facebook page, airing his grievances against LAPD.

"You allow an officer to attempt to hack into my credit union account and remain on the job," Dorner wrote in the 11,000-word document.

In seeking the protective order, Dorner stated he was "in fear for my life" because she boasted of her ability to kill, and told him she has "nothing to lose."

It was a phrase that Dorner later used to describe himself – "I have nothing to lose" – in the manifesto as he laid out his mission to apparently seek revenge over the department. He was fired from the LAPD in 2008, after reporting another officer for alleged brutality – an accusation that investigators later said was false.

With the manhunt for Dorner still unresolved, none of the women could be reached for comment.
