LAPD chief: 'I do this not to appease a murderer'

The Los Angeles Police Department will reopen its investigation into the firing of a officer that prompted alleged revenge attacks as the hunt for the man accused of killing three people widened in Southern California's San Bernardino Mountains.

Christopher Jordan Dorner declared war on police in a manifesto after being fired by the LAPD and losing appeals to be reinstated, claiming that racism in the police department was behind him losing his job.

"I feel we need to publicly address Dorner's allegations regarding his termination," LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said in a statement released Saturday.

"...I do this not appease a murderer. I do it to reassure the public that their police department is transparent and fair in all things we do."
