Inside his more than 11,000-word manifesto, Christopher Jordan Dorner attempted to explain the reasoning behind his rampage.
Dorner has been at large since being named as the man suspected of killing Monica Quan and her fiancé, Keith Lawrence, on Sunday in Irvine. Since then, he also is suspected of killing one police officer and wounding two others. Authorities said he posted a manifesto on Facebook earlier this week.
What began as an explanation of his motives turned into thoughts on current events, stories from his past and his final goodbye, which indicates a premonition of his death.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Dorner claims to be on a mission to reclaim his name, or credibility, from the Los Angeles Police Department, which stripped him of his career in the department in 2009 under what he believes were false pretenses.
"A name is more than just a noun, verb, or adjective. It's your life, your legacy, your journey ...," Dorner wrote. "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."
Within the manifesto, Dorner names 27 law enforcement officials that he blames for his dismissal from the department.
Dorner, who claims to be an established police officer for three years in the document, was fired after authorities said he filed false charges against a training instructor…..Dorner's manifesto: his reason for rage | dorner, manifesto, wrote - News - The Orange County Register
