A massive manhunt is underway for former LAPD police officer Christopher Dorner, who is being sought in connection with a double homicide and the ambush/shootings of three police officers, one of whom was killed.
Dorner’s manifesto, which follows below, is a rambling, depressive screed, akin to a Golden Globes acceptance speech (with references to Tim Tebow, Charlie Sheen and Anthony Bourdain). But the ex-officer says he’s on a mission to clean up a racist, corrupt thin blue line, and on some levels, it’s extremely important, despite his alleged role in the killings.
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck answered questions at a press conference on Thursday, and right behind him, check out this backdrop that urges people to join the department. It’s also described as a “rewarding career.” Odd timing, given the death of at least one officer and the claims from Dorner that his career was cut short after being stabbed in the back by colleagues.

“I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days. You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen. I know I will be villified by the LAPD and the media. 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. The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions.
The question is, what would you do to clear your name?”
