The Dorner Manifesto
February 9, 2013 12:31 AM   Subscribe

It sounds like Dorner has some legitimate grievances, which is not the same as saying his actions are justified. (NSFW) Christopher Dorner, a former U.S. marine and police officer, allegedly goes on a killing spree targeting LAPD police officers. There are already three alleged victims. Releases manifesto explaining his motives in extensive detail and naming targets of interest. The document details many (sometimes extremely graphic) descriptions of police brutality that is ongoing largely uncovered in the Los Angeles Police Department and especially the internal politics that he claims makes the whole department "unable to monitor itself".

"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."

This post was deleted for the following reason: This is sort of a "better for your own blog" presentation with OP opinion front and center and OP explanation of the situation (instead of links), plus only a single link to the manifesto with no other framing, analysis or background = not a great way to post this here. -- taz

Sadly, I bet the feature film development has started already
