Joe Jones, a former LAPD officer has come out in support of Christopher Dorner, the fugitive ex-LA cop who declared "war" against the LAPD. "The 1st thing I would say to [Dorner] is, I feel your pains!," Joe Jones wrote in his own manifesto — reportedly circulated by hacker group Anonymous and posted to Jones' Facebook (from where it was subsequently deleted). "But you are going about this the wrong way. To take innocent lives could never be the answer to anything. I say this as a Man who experienced the same pain, betrayal, anger, suffering, litigation and agony that you did in many ways."
Jones, 48, who was a patrol officer for nine years and retired in 1998, expressed his condolences for Donner's victims but also said he's been a victim of such corruption. "I need you to first assume that I would not surface 16 years later with lies about a situation that has me with PTSD to this very day," he wrote. "The pain forces me to speak as I have yet to shake the Ill's of my experience as an LAPD Officer."
