Even as the flames begin to die down at the Big Bear Lake, California cabin where suspected quadruple murderer and former Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Dorner is believed to have been cornered by authorities, supporters of his rage-and-revenge-fueled quest against the LAPD have already set up a site dedicated to airing what they believe is the truth about the week-long manhunt in putsuit of Dorner.
Christopher-Dorner.com has an online poll asking viewers whether police or Dorner set the fire which is believed to have taken his life. As of 9:16 p.m. on Tuesday, 568 people or 78% of all poll respondents said they believed authorities had set the fire. 56% of respondents to a previous poll indicated that they believed Dorner would survive his encounter with the authorities.
"The LAPD's actions have cost me my law enforcement career. They cost me my naval career ... I've lost my 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 knew I was INNOCENT!!" reads a quote from Dorner's manifesto on the banner of the site, placed next to a smiling picture of the killer.
"This is my last resort. The LAPD has suppressed the truth and it has now led to deadly consequences," the site continued.
Could we be looking at a repeat of the Sandy Hook conspiracy theories which resulted in the harassment of victims, bystanders, and others after that deadly attack? For all our sakes, I hope not.
