Attorney General Eric Holder: Investigate the LAPD and what Dorner addressed in his manifesto.

LAPDIn light of  Christopher Dorner’s claims of the LAPD’s handling of his firing and their corruption, along with their extreme and long history of corruption and should not be allowed to reopen and do an internal investigation of Dorner’s firing.

Christopher Dorner has the right to a proper evaluation of his emotional status and a right to a fair trial, represented by legal counsel.  Not the media’s psyco babble-lynchings and the word of LAPD.

Family of mother killed in police custody question LAPD investigation


The family of a woman who died in police custody two months ago is calling on the U.S. Justice Department to investigate her case, along with other instances of what the family’s attorney calls a pattern of misconduct by the Los Angeles Police Department.

Alesia Thomas died in police custody July 22nd, after being placed in hobble restraint device and put into the back of a patrol vehicle.

Police refuse to release the dashcam video that would show exactly what happened to Thomas that morning. And according to police spokesman Sgt. Frank Preciado, in comments to theGrio, there is no arrest report because Thomas died in custody before officers could reach the police station.

  1. I See so many errors. Delete the original please. It is sad that the LAPD got away with so many excessive force arrest over the years. It’s sad that Dorner felt he had to resort to these measures to put eyes on the practices of all the police forces around the country. I’m not justifying his murdering spree but I do understand what is driving this man.

    • Ametia says:

      Message deleted. Dorner snapped, he murdered people, and that’s wrong. My thing is, his murders are not being told like other murderers who shoot other innocent poeple. And that included the media coverage.

      Dorner has the right to be caught alive, tell his story, and stand trial. The LAPD needs to be investigated for the charges against them too.

      My prayers to the victims and their families.

      • I agree the murders are wrong. Life is not for us to take. They aren’t going to take him alive. They are saying they want to but he’s going to come out blazing and LAPD is going to do what they have to do. If he doesn’t do himself first.

        • Ametia says:

          In a just and fair country of laws, Dorner wouldn’t have to go out in a blaze, but he definitely will not let them take him alive. He cannot be allowed to kill more people.

    Christopher Dorner’s burning truck was found near an associate’s property in the San Bernardino Mountains last week, court records showed, suggesting that the fugitive former police officer may have received help evading authorities.

    Dorner, 33, a former Los Angeles Police Department officer and Navy Reserve veteran, is wanted in connection with the deaths of an Irvine couple and a Riverside police officer. Multiple law enforcement agencies are involved in the ongoing search, which triggered statewide alerts in California and Nevada and reaches down to Mexico.

    A criminal complaint filed in federal court raises the possibility that Dorner may have been assisted by “a known associate,” identified only as “J.Y.”

    The chickens are coming home to roost…. Racism has different psychological effects on different personalities what we are seeing playing out is the effects of racism. I also think black on black crime is the effects of racism and the effects of slavery past down from generation to generation. I’m really surprised we’ve not seen more reactions to racism.

  7. Fresh questions over Christopher Dorner’s dismissal as hunt contiunes

    Police files raise possibility Dorner may have had legitimate grievance as frustration mounts over failure to catch ex-officer

    Police records have raised the possibility that there is a legitimate grievance behind Christopher Dorner’s homicidal vendetta against the Los Angeles police department.

    Dorner, a former LAPD officer, was sacked in 2008 for falsely claiming a colleague kicked a homeless suspect, but a judge who examined the case concluded that he could not be certain whether or not the suspect had been kicked.

    The revelation came amid mounting frustration that a massive five-day manhunt had failed to catch Dorner, 33, who is accused of killing three people in a self-declared “war” against police and their families in southern California.

    On Monday, the Riverside County district attorney on charged Dorner with murdering a police officer and the attempted murder of three other officers.

    Police continued searching cabins in remote areas of Big Bear, a snowy mountain resort north of LA which has been the focus of the dragnet, and officers elsewhere chased up reported sightings. Authorities declined to confirm whether drones were being used.


    The dirty lowdown scum of the earth–> LAPD! Drones? No need for drones to target an American citizen.


    Police also report that Dorner tried to steal a boat in San Diego in an attempt to flee to Mexico. Police believe Dorner approached an 81-year-old man at the Point Loma Yacht Club on Harbor Island with a firearm and demanded his boat on Wednesday. But the boat’s motor malfunctioned, forcing him to scrap his plans. He took the boat owner’s cellphone and left him unharmed. Police say a briefcase belonging to Dorner and his badge were found not far from the scene of the attempted theft.

    His badge was found at the scene? I thought police have to turn in their badge once they’ve been fired?

  9. Dorner’s LAPD firing case hinged on credibility,0,2498334.story

    For a Los Angeles Police Department disciplinary panel, the evidence was persuasive: Rookie officer Christopher Jordan Dorner lied when he accused his training officer of kicking a mentally ill man during an arrest.

    But when a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge examined the case a year later in 2010 as part of an appeal filed by Dorner, he seemed less convinced.

    Judge David P. Yaffe said he was “uncertain whether the training officer kicked the suspect or not” but nevertheless upheld the department’s decision to fire Dorner, according to court records reviewed by The Times.

    As the manhunt for the ex-cop wanted in the slayings of three people enters its sixth day, Dorner’s firing has been the subject of debate both within and outside the LAPD. An online manifesto that police attributed to Dorner claims he was railroaded by the LAPD and unjustly fired. His allegations have resonated among the public and some LAPD employees who have criticized the department’s disciplinary system, calling it capricious and retaliatory toward those who try to expose misconduct.

    Seeking to address those concerns, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck announced this weekend that he was reopening the investigation into Dorner’s disciplinary case. “It is important to me that we have a department that is seen as valuing fairness,” Beck said.

    LAPD records show that Dorner’s disciplinary panel heard from several witnesses who testified that they did not see the training officer kick the man. The panel found that the man did not have injuries consistent with having been kicked, nor was there evidence of having been kicked on his clothes. A key witness in Dorner’s defense was the man’s father, who testified that his son told him he had been kicked by police. The panel concluded that the father’s testimony “lacked credibility,” finding that his son was too mentally ill to give a reliable account.

    At least five Los Angeles police officers are being investigated in connection to the death of a 35-year-old mother of two who was allegedly stomped and kicked in the genitals during an arrest last month, police said on Friday.

    Alesia Thomas was found not breathing in the back of a patrol car after resisting arrest in an incident that was captured on a dashboard camera.

  11. Fugitive alleged LAPD-killer is first drone target on U.S. soil

    It’s official: The drone war has come home to America. Wanted fugitive Christopher Dorner, the homicidal former cop currently at war with the LAPD, has become the first known human target for airborne drones on U.S. soil. Their use was confirmed by Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who revealed the government’s fear that Dorner will make a dash for the Mexican border. The fugitive has already killed three people, according to police, and has a $1 million bounty on his head. Dorner, who has military training, is believed to be hiding in the wilderness of California’s San Bernardino Mountains, where locating him without air support may be all but impossible.

  12. Christopher Dorner Manhunt: Possible Sighting of Fugitive Ex-Cop Leads to Store Evacuation

    A Northridge, Calif., home improvement store was evacuated tonight because of a possible sighting of suspected cop-killer Christopher Dorner, just hours after police announced a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest.

    As helicopters hovered overhead and a command center was established, police searched the Lowe’s store and eventually told shoppers they could leave, but could not take their cars out of the parking lot.

    LAPD spokesman Gus Villanueva said the major response to the possible sighting was a precaution, but couldn’t say whether Dorner was in the area.

  13. With Inquiry, an Attempt to Reassure Los Angeles

    LOS ANGELES — Police Chief Charlie Beck stood in front of a bank of television cameras on Sunday afternoon facing what seemed like two impossible tasks: luring in a fugitive former police officer accused of three murders and simultaneously assuring the public that his department was not backsliding on accusations of racism and corruption.

    For the last four days, dozens of law enforcement agencies across Southern California have been searching for Christopher J. Dorner, the former officer who posted a manifesto online promising revenge against Los Angeles police officers and claiming that racism had led to his firing. Chief Beck said on Sunday that the search for Mr. Dorner, who is wanted in connection with the killing of a former police captain’s daughter and her fiancé and the shooting death of a police officer in Riverside, Calif., was “by far the largest manhunt in the history of the L.A. region.”

    Chief Beck spoke with visible emotion of the toll the threats were taking on officers. “I think all of us in law enforcement accept a level of risk when we become police officers,” he said at a news conference where he announced a $1 million reward for information that leads to the arrest of Mr. Dorner. “But none of us accept that level of risk for our families, believe me.”

    At the same time, Chief Beck said he was eager to protect the reputation of a department that he had worked painstakingly to repair over the last several years. On Saturday, he said he would review the investigation of the 2007 episode that led to Mr. Dorner’s dismissal. He was fired in 2008 for giving false statements after he accused his training officer of kicking a suspect.

  14. Details emerge in LAPD’s mistaken shooting of newspaper carriers,0,4414028.story

    The officers’ radio crackled with an urgent warning: He could be coming your way.

    It was around 5 a.m. in Torrance on Thursday and police from nearby El Segundo had seen a pickup truck exit a freeway and head in the general direction of the Redbeam Avenue residence of a high-ranking Los Angeles police official, which was being guarded by a group of LAPD officers.

    Police were on the lookout for Christopher Jordan Dorner, a disgruntled ex-cop suspected of hunting down members of the LAPD and their families in a twisted campaign of revenge. The radio call indicated that the truck matched the description of Dorner’s gray Nissan Titan.

    A few minutes later, a truck slowly rolled down the quiet residential street.

    As the vehicle approached the house, officers opened fire, unloading a barrage of bullets into the back of the truck. When the shooting stopped, they quickly realized their mistake. The truck was not a Nissan Titan, but a Toyota Tacoma. The color wasn’t gray, but aqua blue. And it wasn’t Dorner inside the truck, but a woman and her mother delivering copies of the Los Angeles Times.

    In an interview with The Times on Friday, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck outlined the most detailed account yet of how the shooting unfolded. Margie Carranza, 47, and her mother, Emma Hernandez, 71, were the victims of “a tragic misinterpretation” by officers working under “incredible tension,” he said. Just hours before, Dorner allegedly shot three police officers, one fatally. And, in an online posting authorities attributed to him, Dorner threatened to kill more police and seemed to take responsibility for the slaying over the weekend of the daughter of a retired LAPD captain and her fiance.

    Beck and others stressed that the investigation into the shooting is in its infancy. They declined to say how many officers were involved, what kind of weapons they used, how many bullets were fired and, perhaps most important, what kind of verbal warnings — if any — were given to the women before the shooting began.

    Let’s be clear here. 3 Chics in NO way condones the killing of innocent people. Dorner KILLED innocent people. He needs to be brought in, evaluated and stand trial for the murders. It’s the American way, isn’t it? That negroes got a $million bounty on his head for killing a cop, he’s not going to make it out alive.

  19. Police seeking Dorner opened fire in a second case of mistaken identity

    David Perdue with his wife, Lyzzette, in their Redondo Beach hom. Torrance police fired on his vehicle and rammed it Thursday in a case of mistaken identity.,0,3955268.story

    David Perdue was on his way to sneak in some surfing before work Thursday morning when police flagged him down. They asked who he was and where he was headed, then sent him on his way.

    Seconds later, Perdue’s attorney said, a Torrance police cruiser slammed into his pickup and officers opened fire; none of the bullets struck Perdue.

    His pickup, police later explained, matched the description of the one belonging to Christopher Jordan Dorner — the ex-cop who has evaded authorities after allegedly killing three and wounding two more. But the pickups were different makes and colors. And Perdue looks nothing like Dorner: He’s several inches shorter and about a hundred pounds lighter. And Perdue is white; Dorner is black.

    “I don’t want to use the word buffoonery but it really is unbridled police lawlessness,” said Robert Sheahen, Perdue’s attorney. “These people need training and they need restraint.”

  20. LA cop at center of rape investigation now being sued for police brutality

    ­An LA police officer under investigation over claims he threatened women with jail time if they refused to have sex with him is now being sued by a man he and another officer beat nearly to death after trying to extort money from him last May.

    Officer James Nichols is included with the City of Los Angeles, the LAPD, the police union and John Miller, another officer, in a $20 million lawsuit brought by Brian Mulligan, a former finance executive. Mulligan alleges that Nichols and Miller nearly killed him last year.

    Mulligan’s lawsuit claims that in addition to the beating, the LAPD and its union engineered a smear campaign against him that resulted in him losing his job.

    Mulligan “suffered a broken shoulder blade and facial fractures requiring several surgeries at the hands of police officers after they stopped him in the city’s Highland Park neighborhood and forced him to check into a local motel and stay there against his will,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    The plaintiff was an upper-level executive at Deutsche Bank at the time, Dispatches from the Underclass reports, and unlike many victims of police brutality in the US, is a wealthy white man.

    Following the violent incident, Mulligan was called a “dangerous, delusional drug addict” by authorities.

    However, there’s more to the case: papers filed as part of Mulligan’s suit say he is suing the LAPD for “knowingly harbor[ing] among its officers a serial predator, Officer James Nichols (‘Nichols’), who has a history of using threats, fear and his badge to abduct and assault people.”

  23. Christopher Dorner Manifesto Puts LAPD Legacy Under A Spotlight

    LOS ANGELES — Fugitive former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner’s claim in an online “manifesto” that his career was undone by racist colleagues conspiring against him comes at a time when it’s widely held that the police department has evolved well beyond the troubled racial legacy of Rodney King and the O.J. Simpson trial.

    Dorner, who is suspected in a string of vengeance killings, has depicted himself as a black man wronged, whose badge was unjustly taken in 2008 after he lodged a complaint against a white female supervisor.

    “It is clear as day that the department retaliated toward me,” Dorner said in online writings authorities have attributed to him. Racism and officer abuses, he argued, have not improved at LAPD since the King beating but have “gotten worse.”

    Dorner’s problems at the LAPD, which ended with his dismissal, played out without public notice more than four years ago, as the department gradually emerged from federal oversight following a corruption scandal. At the time, the officer ranks were growing more diverse and then-Chief William Bratton was working hard to mend relations with long-skeptical minorities.

    “This is no longer your father’s LAPD,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa declared in 2009, after the federal clampdown was ended.

    Dorner’s allegations led Police Chief Charlie Beck on Saturday to order a reexamination of the disciplinary case that led to the former officer’s firing. Beck said he wanted to assure the city that the department “is transparent and fair in all the things we do.”

    “I am aware of the ghosts of the LAPD’s past, and one of my biggest concerns is that they will be resurrected by Dorner’s allegations of racism,” Beck said in a statement.

    Civil rights attorney Connie Rice said the department should review the Dorner case and his claims, while stressing that she is not defending the suspect in any way and is shocked by the attacks.

    • Ametia says:

      Yes; Beck wants to be transparent; transparent like the video of the cop pepper-spraying and man-handling a kid in broad day light for what?

  24. Petition to investigate LAPD corruption

    We Petition the Obama Administration to:

    To look into the corruption in the LAPD that Christopher Jordan Dorner has spoke of.

    Check into the truth behind what Christoper Jordan Dorner has stated about the LAPD and find a resolution to clean up one of the possible most corrupt police departments in the nation.

  25. Dorner manhunt: $1-million reward expected to be offered

    Elected officials and law enforcement authorities on Sunday are expected to offer a $1-million reward for information leading to the arrest and capture of fugitive ex-cop Christopher Jordan Dorner.

    A massive manhunt for Dorner began last week after the 33-year-old former Los Angeles police officer and Navy veteran allegedly began a deadly campaign that has left three people dead and two others injured. Dorner is believed to be upset over his firing from the department in 2009.

    The city of Los Angeles, law enforcement organizations, private groups and anonymous donors have all contributed to the reward fund, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation. Authorities have already raised $500,000 with a goal of $1 million or more.

  26. Whenever a non black person is accused of murder the MSM never hesitate to inform us the accused is innocent until proven guilty. Do not Christopher Dorner deserve the same presumption of innocence?


  27. Capt. Phil Tingirides, Named In Christopher Dorner’s Manifesto, Hasn’t Left House

    SANTA ANA, Calif. — A Los Angeles police captain who’s been named as a target in a fugitive former cop’s online manifesto says he is taking the threat against him seriously.

    Capt. Phil Tingirides tells the Orange County Register ( that he hasn’t been able to leave his home since he learned Christopher Dorner was seeking revenge against former LAPD colleagues that Dorner blames for ending his career.

    Authorities suspect Dorner killed three people, including the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing.

    Tingirides chaired a board that stripped Dorner of his badge.

    Reward and Renewed Search for Ex-LAPD Cop Wanted in Revenge

    The FBI, U.S. Marshals Service and numerous other law enforcement agencies plan to announce a reward on Sunday for information leading to the capture of Christopher Dorner.

    As investigators began their fourth day of searching for fugitive ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner in the snowy mountains around Big Bear Lake, federal and state officials said Sunday they plan to offer a reward for his capture.

    Dorner is wanted in the slayings of three people and the ambush-style shooting of two others, all part of a revenge-style rampage that began last Sunday, when he allegedly shot the daughter of a police union lawyer and her fiancé in an Irvine parking garage.

    The FBI, U.S. Marshals Service and numerous local police agencies said they planned to announce details about the reward at a news conference Sunday afternoon.

    A second reward, worth $100,000, could also be on the way, a spokesman for Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich said Sunday.
