Former cop sought in California shootings

A former Los Angeles police officer who has violently threatened his former colleagues shot at multiple officers early Thursday, police said, sparking a huge manhunt in Southern California.

Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, is also accused of a double slaying Sunday in Irvine, California.

The California Highway Patrol issued an alert Thursday morning urging officers in several Southern California counties to be on the lookout for Dorner after a series of overnight shootings involving police.

    Its too bad he had to resort to such desperate acts just to expose excessive force in the LAPD. Which, everyone since Rodney King knows exists.

    So let's pass a new law. You cannot violate a persons civil rights..oh! We already have that one. How about 5 bullets in every cops gun?

      There's no defense for someone who ambush's you with a assault rifle. Especially if there well trained.

    So the madman posted his manifesto on Facebook nearly a month ago saying who he was gonna target yet nothing was done to prevent this. Once again another loon let it be known what his intent was. We need to target crazy people instead of law abiding gun owners but this incident will undoubtably be put in the spotlight to support the anti gun blowhards.
    Would the new gun law proposals have prevented this. The answer is no.

    He probably has a cell phone. His cell pone probably has GPS, so he can dodge CHP, but he don't quite know how to shut it off...he he.

    Do you think, PTSD may be in play with Doner's hostility, killings and derangement?

    Shame on the LAPD!!!! They are looking for a "suspected" killer. They shoot up 2 trucks(oops). Why is there no talks of discipline for the trigger happy LAPD? If this person did commit the crimes then he deserves to pay.

    Lol love your flair with words @ Rascal. And youre right of course. He was tired of the corrupt LAPD and how they abused citizens but he sure went about changing it all wrong. Of course now maybe someone with more clout can do something about the LAPD.
