CBS2 Exclusive: LAPD Chief Announces He’s Reopening Case That Resulted In Dorner’s Termination
CBSLA.com ^ | February 9, 2013 6:19 PM

Posted on 02/09/2013 8:22:03 PM PST by BenLurkin

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — LAPD Chief Charlie Beck has just announced he’s reopening the case that resulted in accused cop killer and former officer Christopher Dorner’s termination.

“I’m not doing this to appease him. I’m doing this so the community has faith in what the police department does,” Beck said in an exclusive interview Saturday with CBS2’s Pat Harvey.

In a 20-page manifesto posted on Facebook, Dorner allegedly vows revenge against several former LAPD co-workers whom he claims ended his career.

“This investigation has already been reviewed at multiple levels…If I have to redo something or deal with an issue I will deal with it publicly,” said Beck, adding that interviews about the case cannot legally be made public for the interviewers’ safety.

The police chief said Dorner has not reached out to him in any way.

He stressed that if Dorner were to contact the police department and surrender he would guarantee his safety.

CBS News reported Saturday that investigators found weapons and cold weather survival gear inside the burned-out truck belonging to Dorner after it was located in Big Bear. Several law enforcement agencies have been scouring the area for the triple murder suspect.

“I’m not going to comment on what was recovered. I’m not going to comment on where we think he is or what we think he’s doing,” said Beck, who added that would be revealed in time.

Harvey mentioned that thousands of people are publicly supporting the triple murder suspect on a Facebook page.

“I’m surprised about it. I’ve been doing this for 36 years and not a lot surprises me,” Beck said.

The manifesto includes dozens of targets and warned that their families will be harmed.

“I will utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordinance and survival training I’ve been given,” Dorner writes. “You have misjudged a sleeping giant.”

The manifesto goes on to say, “I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours.”

Beck said the situation is putting tremendous stress on those officers and their families.

“We have protection details for 50 families. Imagine having to go through your daily existence like that, knowing your family was the target of a trained assassin like Dorner…It is absolutely unthinkable,” the police chief said.

Beck said he is putting all the department’s resources into finding Dorner.

“This is not just about cops, this is about all of us. There is a small, small portion of the population that puts themselves at risk for the benefit of society, and when they’re attacked, it puts the rest of the population under attack.

“I will do everything it takes to capture Dorner and to keep our police officers and the city safe, everything it takes.”

At the end of the interview, Harvey asked Beck why he chose to grant her the interview exclusively. The police chief explained that he had a good relationship with the CBS2 anchor and thought she was a fair journalist. He said he also wanted to reach out to the African-American community, who Dorner claims is unfairly targeted by LAPD officers.

It may also have to do with Dorner praising Harvey in his manifesto: “Pat Harvey, I’ve always thought you carried yourself professionally and personally the way a strong black woman should. Your articulation and speech is second to none. You are the epitome of a journalist/anchor. You are America.”

This is nothing more than Cover Your Ass, the only question that needs to be answered is Why did the Star Chamber hearing choose to ignore the 2 Citizen Witnesses that Testified to the exact same thing as Dorner?? If they believe Dorner lied, then all 3 lied, and since they all told the SAME LIE, Wouldn’t that be a Conspiracy to Commit Perjury?? And Since the Star Chamber had to believe just that, are they not All Guilty of Misprison of a Felony??

“Misprision of felony” is still an offense under United States federal law after being codified in 1909 under 18 U.S.C. § 4:

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This offense, however, requires active concealment of a known felony rather than merely failing to report it.[7]

The last time I checked the Police Arrest people that CONSPIRE TO COMMIT PERJURY??? or do they Only believe Dorner was lying and the 2 witnesses were truthful?? Or do they Know it was the truth and cannot allow ANYONE to cross that Blue Line of Silence, regardless of the circumstances?

no one is going to trust the LAPD... have faith in it... but i'm glad he's reopening the case... but i think a group other than the LAPD should look into it because--well, i don't trust the LAPD--have any faith in it... an independent group...

Just think. If he had said that he was a homosexual in his "manifesto", it would be "millions" supporting him. We live in a sick, sick country. It does make it easier though for a normal person to understand how the Kenyan got himself "elected" TWICE!

I haven't been keeping up with every aspect of this story; How did the "mainfesto" get out in the first place? I know it has been scrubbed of portions by the lamestream.
This "shooter" is pissed off and highly motivated. He's also demonstrating he is no dummy.

I know I am going to get flamed, but parts of all this are not adding up.

Of course not! However putting out this little bit of publicity out when the trail's gone stone cold on Dorner might draw him out, right? Right?

He is a big dangerous dummy.

THe “Manifesto” was just a string of facebook postings penned by a self-absorbed loser.

Beck, unless this really is a ploy to get him to turn himself in, is only going to makes things in L.A> MUCH worse.

All this does is tell the troublemakers that if they commit acts of violence they get their way. How long until Djorner’s supporters start rioting? Never give in to terrorists.

Those “jack boots” are after a man who murdered three people. Better hope you don’t run into Djorner while he’s running from the police. He may falsely assume you are one of those trying to get in his way of hunting down innocent people.

All it took for them to “support” Dorner him was to be made aware
that he was a big Obama supporter (also a fan of a multitude of other loose-cannon Lefty commentators.) Think of how little it took for multitudes to support O.J. right up to and through
his murder trial. This kind of “nullification” has been given new life through four years of Obama;s Presidency. We’re back to 1995 and the perennial loathing of the LAPD. I admit I haven’t read what this guy’s “supporters” have said on Facebook, and don’t think I want to.

I think LA is sitting on a powder keg.

Dorner is already a leftist darling. I keep expecting the Twink King to say Dorner is innocent having been denied 'Social Fairness'. And, if the twink had a nephew, he'd look like Dorner.

I am sure a thorough review of the case will find that Dorner was indeed unjustly terminated. He will be reinstated with back pay and all will be forgiven if he just turns himself in at the closest precinct.

So, this "dummy" who just literally left the LAPD high and dry in Big Bear; his "manifesto" was "pieced" together from facebook postings?

Again, asking because I don't truly know about the manifesto piece to all this.
As well, dumb people don't plan egress routes which this guy has so far done.

The two police officers are on leave pending a further investigation. There was also one other incident of a police officer firing on a vehicle. Why color a whole force as bad based on the actions of these three officers?

By and large, police have been doing more damage across this country with no-knocks and their perfumed princes par non-excellence SWAT teams than citizenry.

This is turning into a disaster for the gun grabbers. But I see you are on board.

If that is what you see, then you are blind. I favor repeal of all federal gun laws including background checks which are nothing more than registration, and I support open carry here in Texas.

Your second paragraph is not backed by the evidence. Check out the crime statistics especially in major cities if you don't believe me.

As to no-knock warrants, I agree that they are usually not justified and the police powers need to be reigned in.

BTW, Djorner is a gun grabber. Read his manifesto.

WHICH IS WHY I AM ON THIS THREAD!! WHERE did the manifesto actually COME FROM?

As to your other points, You seem to see law enforcement as some how mightier than the private individual based on your own words. They are not. They are YOU and ME and they exist BECAUSE of our local tax dollars. They are beholden to US and US alone. Get rid of many of the laws that coddle the criminals and penalize the private land owners and guess what? No need for such "Police Actions" like we agree upon; no-knocks and para-military SWAT teams screwing up all over this country. Stat's? A laugh, exactly WHO are getting your stat's from? The departments? haha...okay. City Council? bwahaha...even better, the one's who don't WANT sued. I bet you have NO idea that entire vice departments in this country are operated and run based on seizures alone. Go look THAT stat up and then come back and tell me who is in the business of keeping up business.

The manifesto came from Facebook.

Again, you are seeing something that is not there. The police are no better or worse than we are. If there is corruption, it should be rooted out, but we should not go around assuming they are all guilty because of the actions of a few either. And I am certainly not going to take the word of triple murderer at face value.

If you are so convinced that America's major cities are safe, then you won't have any problem with take long strolls through their high crime neighborhoods, right?

Can someone explain the possible reasoning behind torching the truck? He had abandoned the truck way out on a forest road in the snow...wouldn’t it have been several days before someone found it if he had not set it on fire? Torching it just brought them straight to it. What would the reason be for doing that?

But they are saying now that the truck had a broken axle and that he had left cold-weather survival equipment, ammunition and some larger weapons in the truck. Basically, just taking what he could carry.

I don't know. Either the dude is some kind of mastermind, or he's just been damn lucky so far.

Or
