Many people in the nation are probably asking themselves, "What happened to cause Christopher Dorner to snap and go on the killing spree he went on?" Instead, the question should be, "Is there any truth behind Christopher Dorner's words regarding the corruption in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) as well as the courts? Could the alleged LAPD corruption push a decorated serviceman and dedicated police officer to push back and make an example out of many in the force?"
In the light of the death of Christopher Jordan Dorner, evidence is revealed in his 'manifesto', as well as other statements released on Feb. 13, 2013, that points to many people involved in the Los Angeles government, ranging from the LAPD to United States judges. Dorner's manifesto points at many people alleged to be unethical in their professions.
WHERE IT STARTED
As an officer for the LAPD, Dorner made allegations against training officer, Teresa Evans, for using excessive physical force against a mentally ill citizen by kicking him in the chest and face. The citizen's name is Christopher Gettler . Dorner's employment was later terminated after he was accused of lying, while Officer Evans continued her employment at the LAPD and was even promoted to sergeant later on. Dorner believes he was fired for crossing the 'Blue Line', a silent vow between police, where they are known for covering for each other, no matter what. Dorner expresses his opinion in his manifesto:
Why did you terminate an honest officer and cover for a dishonest officer who victimized a mentally ill citizen?
Gettler's deposition was recorded and can be viewed in this article, as well.
Many allegations are made against various people in office in Dorner's manifesto, people with specific titles and various ranks in the government. The information about these people is direct and to the point and worth a second look into the dark and secret corners of the same government that is involved in this case.
Dorner seems to have support in this case, as he is not the only whistleblower pointing fingers at the LAPD. One whistleblower, Dr. Joseph Zernik, has also published information that supports allegations in his manifesto. Dr. Zernik has fled and went into hiding and is in fear for his life because of the information he has been publishing online.
Information that Dr. Zernik admitted to having knowledge of involves the LAPD undercover narcotic officers who control much of the LA drug corruption and court systems. He also makes accusations regarding bank fraud by the LA court systems.
As this writer was preparing this story, online research revealed a manifesto that was created by another LAPD officer, Josh Jones, describing his experiences working for the LAPD. He also accuses the LAPD of racism, unfair treatment, and of basically pushing him out of his position. He expresses his empathy to Dorner but disagrees with Dorner's spree to kill innocent people who were related to a few of the names Dorner pointed out in his manifesto.
All whistleblowers are alleging similar experiences with the LAPD, which should be thoroughly investigated and not discarded as a 'crazy ex-cop on a killing rampage' alone. Dorner is not the only whistleblower who has died recently. Tracy Lawrence, Las Vegas notary, is also reported to be dead. Lawrence was a key witness in the bank fraud case involving the LA court system that Zernik mentions.
Dorner appears to have had a plan in order and was able to carry out some of that plan before he was believed to have been killed in a cabin fire in Big Bear, California. DNA testing will confirm this on a later date. In his manifesto, Dorner appeals to every journalist to access specific records regarding LAPD through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). He pleas with anyone who will listen to verify his background history and the truth about how he has been portrayed to be: a trouble-making bully.
This writer does not believe that Dorner was on a killing spree to be on a killing spree. He was methodical in his actions and in each step he took. He managed to kidnap and hold a couple hostage for days and avoid the police forces that were searching for him. He did not kill the couple he kidnapped. He specifically killed and threatened to kill any and all people linked to the LAPD, whether it be officers, sergeants, families of those employed by the LAPD, or anyone else who tried to stop him at the request of the LAPD.
The rampage ended when the cabin Dorner was believed to be hiding in set fire, after a lengthy standoff with heavy gunfire.
