A massive manhunt continues for ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, accused of killing three people and injuring two others.
The Guardian quotes the officer as he describes his crime spree as “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare.” 33-year-old Dorner is possibly seeking retaliation against the force after being fired in 2008.
He is believed responsible for shooting engaged couple Keith Lawrence and Monica Quan in Irvine, in their car. He has reportedly also shot 3 police officers, one of whom incurred fatal wounds.
LA Times reports that the officer has been last seen in the town of Big Bear, near Los Angeles. While the resort has been closed on Thursday, authorities have eliminated the possibility of him still being in the area.
The National Ledger posts a press release by the LAPD, asking the public to provide information on Dorner's whereabouts.
“The suspect is Christopher Jordan Dorner, a 33 year old, black male, 6-feet (1.82-m) tall, 270 pounds (123 kg), with black hair, brown eyes, with an unknown clothing description.
“The suspect was last seen driving a 2005 blue or gray Nissan Titan, with a CA license plate of 8d83987 or 7x09131 - the suspect may be switching between the two license plates. The vehicle also has ski racks on its roof."
KTLA publishes the former officer's online manifesto, but user discretion is advised when following the link to it, as it contains disturbing and offensive language.
The cop stresses that he wants to clear his name, and refutes his description as a “bully.” He also mentions having lived in Pico Rivera, La Palma, Thousand Oaks, Cedar City, Utah, Pensacola and Enid.
“The department attempted to label me unsuccessfully as a bully. […] Find any incidents where I was ever accused of being a bully. You won’t, because it doesn’t exist. It’s not in my DNA.
“Never was. I was the only black kid in each of my elementary school classes from first grade to seventh grade in junior high and any instances where I was disciplined for fighting was in response to fellow students provoking common childhood schoolyard fights, or calling me a [N word] or other derogatory racial names,” Dorner wrote.
