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."

      @ Chrissy: Yes I did get it but I HAD to walk around in the snow, like a child. In my mind, you don't know what you have until you get older.

    Because no one is hurt, this is funny to me. Traffic light stuck on green in one direction so a car blows the red in the other hits a suv, that's when the lights started working. What bad luck for someone.

    @ Hamsta:
    I wrote you a long reply that was not published. Either it was too long, or it contained too many German phrases that do not translate well into English.
    I addressed you with respect, as I have always done. At times, I have agreed with you when others in this forum did not.
    If your response is that I fail to comprehend what I read, then you and I have no more conversation.

    I was performing rounds at the hospital one morning and while checking up on a woman I asked, 'So how's your breakfast this morning?' It's very good, except for the Kentucky Jelly. I can't seem to get used to the taste,' the patient replied. I then asked to see the jelly and the woman produced a foil packet labeled 'KY Jelly.'

      A man comes into the ER and yells, 'My wife's going to have her babyin the cab!' I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady's dress, and began to take off her underwear. Suddenly I noticed that there were several cabs, and I was in the wrong one.

    This is exactly how NAZI Germany started. A bunch of layabouts with nothing better to do but complain.

    I don't want to start a firestorm, but the complaints of the average German layabout during that period were quite valid. Too bad they elected a psycho in their frustration.

      MANY of the complaints. Certainly not ALL.
