Christopher Dorner brings public scrutiny on the LAPD: video of alleged victim of police abuse

February 8, 2013

The Police have launched a massive manhunt for Christopher Dorner, who allegedly shot a couple in Irvine earlier this week and a police officer. But, there is more to this story than is being reported. Dorner is an ex-cop and a whistleblower. The suspect is identified as being a Black, male, heavy in stature and 33-years-old. During the LAPD’s frenzied manhunt, they shot civilians.Two women delivering L.A. Times newspapers, one 47 and the other 71 were shot by the police as suspects. according to Political Carnival.  Trained police officers mistook  the two females for a large black man? Even if we overlook this, which we should not, the reason Dorner was fired was because he blew the whistle on allegedly corrupt officers in the LAPD.

An excerpt from Dorner’s manifesto:

In 8/07 I reported an officer (Ofcr. —–/now a Sergeant), for kicking a suspect (excessive force) during a Use of Force while I was assigned as a patrol officer at LAPD’s Harbor Division. While cuffing the suspect, (—–), —– kicked the suspect twice in the chest and once in the face. The kick to the face left a visible injury on the left cheek below the eye. Unfortunately after reporting it to supervisors and investigated by PSB (internal affairs investigator Det. —–), nothing was done. I had broken their supposed “Blue Line”. Unfortunately, It’s not JUST US, it’s JUSTICE!!! In fact, 10 months later on 6/25/08, after already successfully completing probation, acquiring a basic Post Certificate, and Intermediate Post Certificate, I was relieved of duty by the LAPD while assigned to patrol at Southwest division. It is clear as day that the department retaliated toward me for reporting —– for kicking Mr. —–. The department stated that I had lied and made up the report that —– had kicked the suspect. I later went to a Board of Rights (department hearing for decision of continued employment) from 10/08 to 1/09. During this BOR hearing a video was played for the BOR panel where —– stated that he was indeed kicked by Officer —– (video sent to multiple news agencies). In addition to —– stating he was kicked, his father —–, also stated that his son had stated he was kicked by an officer when he was arrested after being released from custody. This was all presented for the department at the BOR hearing. They still found me guilty and terminated me. What they didn’t mention was that the BOR panel made up of Capt. —–, Capt. —–, and City Attorney —– had a significant problem from the time the board was assembled. Capt. —– was a personal friend of —– from when he was her supervisor at Harbor station. That is a clear conflict of interest and I made my argument for his removal early and was denied. The advocate for the LAPD BOR was Sgt. —–. —– also had a conflict of interest as she was —– friend and former partner from Harbor division where they both worked patrol together. I made my argument for her removal when I discovered her relation to —– and it was denied.
