Skip to comments.Chris Dorner: Two African-American LAPD officers appeal for surrender (Post-racial America?)
Posted on 02/12/2013 5:54:45 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Christopher Dorner, the former police officer turned alleged murderer of three has shifted the nations attention to the historically corrupt Los Angeles Police Department. In his publicly released manifesto, he claims the LAPD destroyed his life, ruined his relationships and military career by siding with a white officer he reported for excessive force.
An internal affairs investigation concluded the claim was false and he was released, but Dorner has set out to redeem himself and retaliate against the force and its bureaucratic protectors. He claims the conspirators participating in the police departments rotten culture, institutionalized discrimination, are fair game for his violent, vengeful rampage.
With charges of racism a central element of both the LAPDs shady reputation and Dorners complaint, two additional African American officers have attempted to reach out to the disgruntled fugitive waging war on the force.
Two days ago, 48-year old Joe Jones a Los Angeles police officer of eight years turned entrepreneur - released an essay on his Facebook account disapproving Dorners violence while sympathizing with his claims of injustice.
He wrote, Just like former Officer Christopher Dorner, I used to smile a lot. I loved everyone. I was voted Friendliest Senior of my Sr. Class in High School. I always believed in the system and never got into any trouble. I loved hard and gave to all I could. After Joining the LAPD in 1989 I quickly found out that the world and society had major flaws. I had flaws as well for ever believing that our system of government was obligated to do the right thing [sic].
Jones references three incidents of injustice he experienced as an African-American, I had my Civil Rights violated on several occasions...

You join you gotta be a “company man” to some degree...everybody knows that.
If you can’t stand what is going on - QUIT! - and become an activist (and probably make more money).
Murdering innocent people instead isn’t the way to go...I wish he had been killed before he killed that San Bernardino Deputy...that sucks.
May Dorner roast in the firey places below.
How long until the riots start?
They do not.
Looks like about the make up of Los Angelels
wait... last time I checked he was frying in a burning cabin... something happen?
The cabin he’s in has a basement and there are 4 other cabins on the property: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2987946/posts
Don't tell me they're connected.
basement. didn’t think of that
If the link I posted above is correct. Whites made up 29% of the force as of 2008.
What are their FR nicks?
Difficult to uderstand how racism in the LA police department, even if it did exist and resulted in his being unjustly fired, would lead to his washing out of the military, inability to have a family, and turning against the man who apparently tried to defend him in his fight with the department - but even if that racism was the cause of all his problems and not just his rationalization, what is the equation for how many people he should be able to kill before the injustice is balanced, and does he get to kill just for the injustices done to him, or can he avenge wrongs done to others by continuing his spree - some things for the likes of Chrissy Matthews to consider.......
LONG BEACH, Calif. — Details are coming to light about Christopher Dorner’s ex-wife, who is reportedly an undercover narcotics officer living in Long Beach.
Neighbors tell Eyewitness News Dorner was last seen at his ex-wife’s home two months ago, and was a regular visitor until that point. They said Dorner took care of landscaping at the home.
His ex-wife has lived at the home for eight years. The two were married in April 2007. A month later, they filed a joint petition for summary dissolution of marriage.
Dorner is supected of shooting two officers in Riverside, killing one and injuring the other, who underwent surgery and was reported to be in stable condition early Thursday, according to Riverside Police. Dorner is also suspected of shooting and wounding a LAPD officer in Corona.
