A former Los Angeles cop who had allegedly warned he would target law enforcement in retribution for being fired is now suspected of shooting three officers early Thursday, killing one,
The shootings -- which come a day after Irvine, California, police named Christopher Jordan Dorner as the suspect in a double slaying there Sunday
be on the lookout for the onetime officer and Navy lieutenant.
The manhunt stretched from Los Angeles to San Diego He worked for the LAPD from 2005 until 2008.
Multiple law enforcement agencies linked Dorner, 33, to the shooting of two Riverside police officers in an ambush.... One officer died.
In addition to Thursday's shootings, Dorner is suspected of the February 3 deaths of Monica Quan and her fiance Keith Lawrence in Irvine, according to police there.
Quan, 27, was the daughter of retired Los Angeles police officer Randal Quan, Dobine confirmed to CNN.
In his letter, which was provided to CNN by an LAPD source, Dorner said Randal Quan handled the appeal of his termination. Dorner threatened Quan and his family as well as several other LAPD figures, and said his treatment at the agency's hands had ruined his life.
"I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I'm terminating yours," Dorner allegedly wrote,
The letter writer warned the officers to "look your wives/husbands and surviving children directly in the face and tell them the truth as to why your children are dead."
Dorner also threatened to use his Navy training against additional police officers who he said were involved in a continuing culture of racism and misconduct in the department.

He said the attacks were "a necessary evil
This guy is bad mumbo...He’s the killer of the Irvine couple last Sunday in the parking lot...
They were targeted and ambushed like the cops this morning were ..
Massive manhunt for this guy right now...
According to reports he is/was in San Diego as his briefcase and his badge were found close to a marina where he tied up an 81 year old man and tried to steal his boat. Th eprop got fouled and he abandoned that idea.
Police said Dorner, 33, implicated himself in the killings with a multi-page “manifesto” that he wrote that included threats against several people, but would give no further details on the document or its contents.
“We have strong cause to believe Dorner is armed and dangerous,” Maggard said, adding that the LAPD and FBI are assisting in the case and anyone who sees the suspect should immediately call 911.
Massive manhunt for this guy right now...Yes, look out! http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2013/02/torrance-shootings.html
Probably trying to get into Mexico...Of course I understand they were not positive this was him regarding the boat hijack. ...
You can bet the rent this guy will try to take as many down as possible before he goes down..Bet a cup of coffee this guy won’t be going to jail...
If he were a Fox News viewer or Rush Limbaugh listener, that would be the lead on every news story, but as a (mostly) race-obsessed black leftist gun control enthusiast, not so much...
This story adds a new twist.
According to documents from a court of appeals hearing in October 2011, Dorner was fired from the LAPD after he made a complaint against his field training officer, Sgt. Teresa Evans. Dorner said that in the course of an arrest, Evans kicked suspect Christopher Gettler, a schizophrenic with severe dementia.
Following an investigation, Dorner was fired for making false statements.
Richard Gettler, the schizophrenic mans father, gave testimony that supported Dorners claim. After his son was returned on July 28, 2007, Richard Gettler asked if he had been in a fight because his face was puffy and his son responded that he was kicked twice in the chest by a police officer.
Just guessing, but that don’t look good for the PD in Torrance...
That one seems to be both excerpted and heavily redacted compared to others that are online (or else the others have been "enhanced"?).
“...”I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own,..... who he said were involved in a continuing culture of racism...”
Yeah. Ok. Uh huh. It’s obviously someone else’s fault.
Maybe we should mandate Mental Health Checks and Universal Background Checks on ALL people applying to become LEOs?
How about a three-month “Cooling Off” Period before they can carry that gun and badge together?
How about they need to show “Justifiable Need To Carry” before they can carry?
I’m just sayin’....
Yep, we just read that....
""Wayne LaPierre, President of the NRA, youre a vile and inhumane piece of shit.""
“Probably trying to get into Mexico...Of course I understand they were not positive this was him regarding the boat hijack. .”
He knows the main ports of entry are on extra watch for this guy that can be spotted 2 miles away due to his body build. He will end up east of San Diego in the mountains either killed by a massive police response or dead from suicide.
Yeah, I just discovered that. It was the first one I found.
This nut is all over the map. He voted for Obama but his first choice would have been Jon Huntsman.
"THE SUSPECT IS CHRISTOPHER JORDAN DORNER, A 33 YEAR OLD, BLACK MALE, 6 FEET TALL, 270 POUNDS, WITH BLACK HAIR, BROWN EYES, WITH AN UNKNOWN CLOTHING DESCRIPTION.
THE SUSPECT WAS LAST SEEN DRIVING A 2005 BLUE OR GRAY NISSAN TITAN, WITH A CA LICENSE PLATE OF 8D83987 or 7X09131 - THE SUSPECT MAY BE SWITCHING BETWEEN THE TWO LICENSE PLATES. THE VEHICLE ALSO HAS SKI RACKS ON ITS ROOF."
Ping me if ya hear they have positive ID on him regarding the SD boat incident.
Is it time for Jesse and Al to get involved. You know, black guy being search for in LA. Does it not sound racial?
OF COURSE I AM BEING CYNICAL.
His manifesto shows that he is not stupid, and that he is also coherent and organized.
He may wind up not being very easy to catch.
He knows LAPD procedure and it is notable that when he engaged in a shootout with the police, he retreated before back up arrived.
That is not standard behavior for the typical disorganized "suicide by cop" kind of guy.
