Dorner's manifesto: his reason for rage

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.


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

Dorner's current actions dealing with what he sees as an injustice of reasons and handling that lead to his termination are reprehensible.

Although only one side (twisted as it mostly sounds) has been communicated through his rambling 'manifesto', it does sound possible knowing the crooked means of how departmental investigations and union representation can run.

Some of his terms and what he states regarding the managing of his investigations sound familiar to many who has dealt with a wrongful investigation / termination within our own department. It also sounds familiar to how certain 'favored staff' can be coddled (or promoted) to the point where justice, truth and ethics are completely and utterly lost.

LAPD has already set the pace through earlier examples that there is no intention to apprehend Dorner alive. Innocent citizens have already been shot at or wounded by LAPD using a shoot first, ask questions later policy. The longer Dorner stays alive, the more questions will be raised.

This is just a prime, real-time example in possibilities of how the lack of ethics and integrity within a department and union representation can go wrong. Dorners' actions do not help his cause. It verifies LAPD's reasoning in stance resulting in termination.

Again, I do not condone Dorners actions or reasoning for his actions. My prayers are with the fallen officers and victims of this heinous crime. A true man of honor would not stoop to cold blooded murder to protest his termination 4-5 years ago.

The way some departments treat its employees, it is no surprise that this has happened. It is amazing that it hasn't happened before in OUR department or union.

Always a snitch when you tell the truth to protect your job? If some dumb ass does something that puts my career on the line and threatens me providing for my children.... I will be 100% A SNITCH. If you wouldn't you need to question your sanity and where your loyalty lies. B-Polished you make great points. It is truly surprising that this hasnt happened in CDCR. Dorne definitely had some sort of mental issue, like PTSD. Sadly lots of military and law enforcement must deal with PTSD and most cant.

The old days where being a snitch isn't cool are over. These days it's all about protect your job, and don't do shit that people could snitch on.

Being a snitch and telling the truth to protect yourself, your name, your sanity, your families well-being are two completely different things. Being a snitch has never been cool. Telling the truth and having integrity has always been and will always be, cool.
