LAPD to Reopen Probe into Fugitive Ex-Cop’s Firing

Tami Abdollah, Yahoo! News, February 10, 2013

The hunt for a former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three killings continued in snow-covered mountains Saturday as the LAPD’s chief said he would reopen the disciplinary case that led to the fugitive’s firing and new details emerged of the evidence he left behind.

Officials will re-examine the allegations by Christopher Dorner, 33, that his law enforcement career was undone by racist colleagues, Police Chief Charlie Beck said. While he promised to hear out Dorner if he surrenders, Beck stressed that he was ordering a review of his 2007 case because he takes the allegation of racism in his department seriously.

“I do this not to appease a murderer. I do it to reassure the public that their police department is transparent and fair in all the things we do,” the chief said in a statement.

Authorities suspect Dorner in a series of attacks in Southern California over the past week that left three people dead, including a police officer. Authorities say he has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues whom he blames for ending his career. {snip}

On Feb. 3, police say Dorner shot and killed a couple in a parking garage at their condominium in Irvine. The woman was the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing.

Dorner wrote in his manifesto that he believed the retired captain had represented the interests of the department over his.

Hours after authorities identified Dorner as a suspect in the double murder, police believe Dorner shot and grazed an LAPD officer in Corona and then used a rifle to ambush two Riverside police officers early Thursday, killing one and seriously wounding the other.

    Chief Beck is doing this because the natives of sounth central L.A. are restless. He is trying to hold off another round of riots which could likely happen.

    • Strider73

      From what I’ve read here & elsewhere, the Mexicans have pretty much cleansed the blacks out of that part of LaLaLand.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Doesn’t matter– one spark will set off the mexicans into a looting rampage. Why should the few blacks that are left in LA get all the good stuff?

        More mexicans were arrested for looting during the Rodney King riots than blacks. I’m sure not a one of them even knew who or what Rodney King was about.

    Police Chief Charlie Beck said, “ do this not to appease a murderer.

    I saw that on TV, but it was sort of hard to see him when he was on his knees groveling.

    I wish these guys knew how to use a microphone…

    • Beck is going to be in trouble big time for this, he left out the adjective “alleged” before the noun “murderer.” Dorner hasn’t been convicted yet, expect a lawsuit.

  • Welcome back Dorner. How was your killing spree?
    We hope you don’t hold any of that against us.

    Give us a break …..

    • Puggg

      Welcome back? I heard he might be in or headed to Chicago.

      And yes, their doing this at the LAPD will only beg for more Dorners.

    Great move, LAP-Dog. Expect more revenge killings in the future.

    No, you’re reopening the case because this guy doesn’t fit the media-created profile of a serial killer or mass shooter. So in order to avoid a black guy turning into one of the highest profile serial killers of the past several years, you’ll reopen the case, find that there was racism, and then label the guy a victim. That way we can talk about how he isn’t a murderer at all, just a righteous man fighting for justice. And that way we can blame conservative whites for perpetuation racism and creating hostile moral environment in which police recruits somehow find it acceptable to use the n-word. You desperately want attention off a black suspect and onto a black victim.

    • saxonsun

      I knew they’d do this. The moment the media talks about “racism” in the LAPD it minimizes this nut’s crimes and legitimizes him.

    Translation: We need to find a white guy or two to sacrifice to the denizens of our city lest they riot. After all, this Django character was just trying to get the reparations due him and now the entire police force is hunting him like a criminal.

  • Greg Thomas

    Charlie Beck panders to illegal invading mexicans and now a suspected black murder. The only reason this hack was hired in the first place is to carry forth the multiculturalism and diversity agenda of “Mayor” Tony Villar reconquista. Los Angeles cannot be flushed down the toilet fast enough..

  • THE MAN

    Wait I see another black history moment ! Who could play Dorner in another Taratino movie ?
    Cuba Gooding Jr. We might get another paid holiday out of this . I can see it now a race conscious black policeman wronged by racist white authorities avenging his firing elected to president in 2016 .

    • Rex Feral

      Cuba Gooding Jr. would be good in that role, that way we know it goes directly to rent.

  • Tim

    A possible motive. Extensive work place violence studies have shown that the greatest propensity for violence comes from those employees given that are teminated then given a “second chance.” When the inevitable second firing comes hours, days or weeks later, the terminated employee views it as a betrayal of the “agreement” between himself and management and lashes out accordingly. The same study also showed that one should never terminate an employee in the managers own office. The humiliated employee internalizes the location of the disgrace and returns there almost instinctually to enact revenge. Better it be that snack machine than your office desk.

    We’ve had this type of cowardly “leadership” for years now. The guy was fired for cause and they’re so scared, even when a bum like dorner kills policemen, they reopen a closed case – DISGUSTING.

  • Bill

    Doesn’t matter a BIT if he was unfairly fired. Not a bit. CIVILIZED people do not go on a murderous rampage for some “grievance”. Blacks do routinely. He is a murderer and the best thing is if he is brought down like a rabid dog.

    • dd121

      After he broke an axle I suspect that he wandered off in the woods and blew his head off. He’ll be found in the spring when the snow melts.

    • Anon

      I’m a bit disappointed that you think that. Even a cursory examination of human history shows that to be untrue. A huge part of the problem is you won’t challenge the brainwashing we’ve all been subject to that violence is in and of itself, evil.

      It’s not. Why the violence is engaged in makes it either right or wrong. Going on a “murderous rampage” for an imagined slight…..that’s wrong. But you know what is far more wrong that that? Not going on a murderous rampage when your people, even your family have been pillaged, raped, murdered and despoiled. THAT sin has a particular punishment whites are collectively reaping….extermination.

      Today….you feel smugly superior to the blacks but for the wrong reasons. Tomorrow….whether or not you will be around to still feel smugly superior is very much in doubt. You don’t realize it…but what you are doing is….wrong. And the punishment for it via universal natural law….unavoidable. You need to change.

      WE need to change. Or we are done.

  • bigone4u

    Reopening Dorner’s allegations? Just tell us the name of the white officers who will be sacrificied on the alter of political correctness and get it over with. Mr. Lapd chief of police, you sir are a moron.

  • Luca

    I’m guessing Christopher “Django” Dorner is in safe house in Washington DC. and I’m going to collect that $1million reward as soon as I can Google Eric Holders home address.

  • forrest dump

    stop copying and pasting segments its really stupid and annoying and detracts from the page and i’m pretty sick of. is there a reason we need to reread the article? are the readers here so dumb they cannot remember the article they just read? pretty stupid …….

      It’s called quoting. Now that you know what the term is, you can look up its definition.

    • Greg Thomas

      From the looks of it, you’re the last person who should be questioning anyone’s intelligence.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Yeah, that’ll work Beck!! Maybe you’ll find him eligible for reinstatement, a promotion and back pay.

    This had better be a ploy to get Dorner to turn himself in otherwise you are giving in to a murderous terrorist. New lesson: if you want to be heard, start killing people.

    The media and black race industry will accept nothing but the innocence of Dorner and guilt of the LAPD. Dorner is already a hero with obama voters, joining the ranks of OJ, Rodney King, Trayvon Martin and the Jena six.

    Kunstler will be dug up to defend Dorner in the name of social justice and righteous black rage.

    It’s worked before and LA is terrified of riots. There are many violent, feral mexican and central american terrorist organizations located in LA armed with military weaponry:

    Gangs are acquiring highpowered, military-grade weapons more frequently, according to the latest National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC) Report. And FBI and law enforcement officials suggest gang members — both enlisted and those working at military bases as contract civilians — may be funneling the firearms to their street-level counterparts.

    Criminal syndicates — that include the notorious Latin gang MS-13 — are getting their hands on a variety of military-grade weapons including rifles, grenades, body armor, and even artillery rounds, according to the latest NGIC report.

    Wouldnt surprize me to see this killer get off lightly for his murderous rampage…look how the sports media/MSM covers for its black athletes…Ray Lewis, amongst many comes to mind.No doubt Dorner will be on Obama’s Pardon List when he leaves office…

  • Surprise! Surprise!

    Another black with a racist chip on his shoulder.

  • rebelcelt

    I think they are lying.They hope he will fall for it. They hope he is so inclined to believe his own press. Maybe he will be of the mindset and fall for it. Probably not…but worth the try. I would do the same thing.

  • Guest

    “I do this not to appease a murderer.” Ummmmm, ok, then why did you do it?”

  • jeffersonesque

    So this was where this was headed? Blacks can now scream racism and get away with murder like OJ Simpson who said he was innocent to make up for slavery and all the rest of what goes with that even though had it not been for slavery they would still be in Africa right now and America and the west would be rid of that dreaded black curse of ever having the black race in its midst for any reason.

    Obviously you can never trust the warped mentality of a negroid who will lie cheat and steal and then claim racism to get out of it all.

    Who ever came up with slavery should have been shot dead and burned and feed to the rats and that includes the Jeffersons who refused to get rid of it when they had they chance but only made it worse with that equality of races BS invoking the Creator that was a lie.

    By Robert Barron, Staff Writer

    The military stresses integrity. It is apparently a lesson learned well by two Vance Air Force Base students. An Enid church is a little richer today thanks to the integrity of Lt.
    Andrew Baugher, a Marine student at Vance, and Ensign Chris Dorner, a
    Navy student pilot.

    The two were driving into Enid Sunday afternoon when they spotted a bank bag in the middle of the road.

    After turning around, they picked up the bag and found it contained
    nearly $8,000. They promptly took the bag to the Enid Police Department

    The money belongs to Enid Korean Church of Grace, 724 W. Randolph, and the bag contained $7,792 in cash and checks.

    “I thought it was a wallet. We turned around and found it was a bank
    envelope,” Baugher said. “We opened it and found plenty of cash in
    there.”

    Baugher said the pair did not know if the money was lost or stolen, but took it to the police department.

    “I thought it was a piece of cardboard,” Dorner said. “When we passed it I thought it was a large purse and turned around.”

    When the two opened the envelope, they saw the checks and the church’s deposit slip.

    Not everyone would have returned the money, but Baugher and Dorner said “it’s an integrity thing.”

    Both were taught honest as children, and integrity is stressed in their military training.

    Baugher grew up in Ankeny, Iowa, a small town north of Des Moines, and was raised in a church.

    Dorner was raised by his mother in La Palma, Calif., in Orange County.
    Both men learned the value of honesty as they were raised.

    “It was just the right thing to do,” Baugher said. “I have loan payments it could have taken care of.”

    Baugher said he learned the pastor of the church had placed the bag on top of his car and it fell off.

    Baugher, a Marine, is a member of the Joint Specialized Undergraduate
    Pilot Training program at Vance. He hopes to fly an F-18. Dorner, a Navy
    officer, hopes to fly SH-60 helicopters used for search and rescue and
    in special operations.

    “The military stresses integrity,” Dorner said. “There was a couple of
    thousand dollars, and if people are willing to give that to a church, it
    must be pretty important to them.”

    He said it was “a little scary” having that much money in front of him.

    Dorner said his mother taught him honesty and integrity.

    “I didn’t work for it, so it’s not mine. And it was for the church,” he
    said. “It’s not so much the integrity, but it was someone else’s money.
    I would hope someone would do that for me.”

    Both students received telephone calls Sunday evening from a church member, whose name they could not understand.

    One phrase they did hear was, “God bless you. Thank you.”

    ALL that I’ve learned from this story for the last couple of days is that ppl with HIGH integrity and MORALS especially NON white should stay away from big city Police Depts, if they want to keep their sanity and soul intact!
