Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles Police Department officer accused of killing four people in revenge for his 2008 firing from the agency for his disputed report of police brutality and corruption in the department, posted a 6-page manifesto before his spree killings.
Dorner is now believed to have been killed by authorities after he fled to a Big Bear Lake cabin which has since burnt to the ground, with the rogue ex-cop believed to be inside while ammunition exploded around him and tear gas flooded the house.
Dorner's manifesto contained a variety of chilling threats. Notably, Dorner said that his intricate understanding of police procedures would allow him to evade authorities and continue to kill despite a massive manhunt. Whether or not he is alive, Dorner certainly made good on that thread, with the death toll now at four dead (including two police officers) and multiple wounded.
Whatever pre-planned responses you have established for a scenario like me, shelve it. Whatever contingency plan you have, shelve it. Whatever tertiary plan you’ve created, shelve it. I am a walking exigent circumstance with no OFF or reset button. JRIC, DOJ, LASD, FBI and other local LE can’t assist and should not involve themselves in a matter that does not concern them. For all other agencies, do not involve yourself in this capture or recovery of me.
