Update: 2/9/13: The latest sick update comes from some of our citizens who are rooting Chris Dorner on and see him as a hero. There are some real sickos in this society. Anyone who would support this man is nuts! You can look at the tweets and words of support here.
Original Story: 2/7/13: Chris Dorner, a former Navy Lt. and LA cop, murdered an assistant basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiance, Keith Lawrence, in Irvine Sunday. He ambushed two officers, killing one this morning and shot at two others.
Dorner posted a manifesto online in which he stated that police are his main targets.
From his manifesto:
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.
Dorner lost his job, according to his manifesto, over unfair allegations that he was a bully who also lied about another officer. He wants the media to investigate and the murders are his avenue of last resort, he claims.
Dorner was released from the Navy on Feb. 1, days before he murdered Ms. Quan and her fiance.
He was fired from the LA police force in 2009. Ms. Quan’s father, a former officer and now a lawyer, worked on the case that led to his dismissal. Dorner killed Ms. Quan because he said he cannot have children because of them and he is going to take their children. Dorner claims he was innocent of the initial charges.
From his manifesto:
I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours. —–, —–, —–, 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.
His truck was found burning at the bottom of a cliff earlier today but he was not in it. He is suspected of being in the area of a ski resort. Police are searching door-to-door in full combat gear.
He claims in his manifesto that the police are guilty of lying and racism. He clearly hates the LA police. He appears to hate Caucasian, Hispanic, Black, Lesbian officers.
His ramblings sound self-serving, paranoid and narcissistic and I don’t want to infer that his political leanings are why he is committing these heinous crimes, but the fact is that he hates the NRA and loves CNN and NBC. He admires Piers Morgan.
If he were a member of the Tea Party or admired Sarah Palin, this would be a major part of the horrific story being reported, but he is not and it is not.
He writes about his firm belief in gun control:
I can buy any firearm I want, but should I be able to purchase these class III weapons (SBR’s, and suppressors) without a background check and just a $10 notary signature on a quicken will maker program? The answer is NO. I’m not even a resident of the state i purchased them in. Lock n Load just wanted money so they allow you to purchase class III weapons with just a notarized trust, military ID. Shame on you, Lock n Load. NFA and ATF need new laws and policies that do not allow loopholes such as this. In the end, I hope that you will realize that the small arms I utilize should not be accessed with the ease that I obtained them. Who in there right mind needs a fucking silencer!!! who needs a freaking SBR AR15? No one. No more Virginia Tech, Columbine HS, Wisconsin temple, Aurora theatre, Portland malls, Tucson rally, Newtown Sandy Hook. Whether by executive order or thru a bi-partisan congress an assault weapons ban needs to be re-instituted. Period!!!
Mia Farrow said it best. “Gun control is no longer debatable, it’s not a conversation, its a moral mandate.”
Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the re-institution of a national AWB. Never again should any public official state that their prayers and thoughts are with the family. That has become cliche’ and meaningless. Its time for action. Let this be your legacy that you bestow to America. Do not be swayed by obstacles, antagaonist, and naysayers. Remember the innocent children at Austin, Kent, Stockton, Fullerton, San Diego, Iowa City, Jonesboro, Columbine, Nickel Mines, Blacksburg, Springfield, Red Lake, Chardon, Aurora, and Newtown. Make sure this never happens again!!! [How? He’s an ex-cop, ex-Navy! Of course he would be allowed to have guns. What law would have stopped him?]
He adds later:
Wayne LaPierre, President of the NRA, you’re a vile and inhumane piece of sh@!.[vuglarity edited by IS]You never even showed 30 seconds of empathy for the children, teachers, and families of Sandy Hook. You deflected any type of blame/responsibility and directed it toward the influence of movies and the media. You are a failure of a human being. May all of your immediate and distant family die horrific deaths in front of you.
He is a big Obama supporter:
You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President. The same as you did to President George W. Bush and all those in the highest ranking position of our land before him. Just as I always have. You question his birth certificate, his educational and professional accomplishments, and his judeo-christian beliefs. You make disparaging remarks about his dead parents. You never questioned the fact that his former opponent, the honorable Senator John McCain, was not born in the CONUS or that Bush had a C average in his undergrad. Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama.
He likes Chris Christie.
Others he admires:
Mr. Vice President, do your due diligence when formulating a concise and permanent national AWB plan. Future generations of Americans depend on your plan and advisement to the president. I’ve always been a fan of yours and consider you one of the few genuine and charismatic politicians. Damn, sounds like an oxymoron calling you an honest politician. It’s the truth.
Hillary Clinton. You’ll make one hell of a president in 2016. Much like your husband, Bill, you will be one of the greatest. Look at Castro in San Antonio as a running mate or possible secretary of state. He’s (good people) and I have faith and confidence in him. Look after Bill. He was always my favorite President. Chelsea grew up to be one hell of an attractive woman. No disrespect to her husband.
Willie Geist, you’re a talented and charismatic journalist.
Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite’s lead. I hold many of you in the same regard as Tom Brokaw and the late Peter Jennings. Cooper, stop nagging and berating your guest, they’re your (guest). Mr. Scarborough, we met at McGuire’s pub in P-cola in 2002 when I was stationed there. It was an honor conversing with you about politics, family, and life.
On the same day, give Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien and Visa card. Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws but you must understand that your critics will always have in the back of their mind that you are native to a country that we won our sovereignty from while using firearms as a last resort in defense and you come from a country that has no legal private ownership of firearms. That is disheartening to American gun owners and rightfully so.

Meanwhile, a young woman, her fiance, and a young police officer are dead at his hands. Another officer is in critical condition. He would have us believe it was the gun’s fault, the LAPD’s fault, but not his.
