In the manhunt for ex-LAPD cop Christopher Jordan Dorner the latest news on Feb. 7 has the alleged killer and cop shooter as attempting to steal a boat and flee to Mexico. Thankfully, he botched that effort and only tied up his alleged victim, an 81-year-old boat owner according to the LA Times.
According to the Times, Dorner managed to entangled the rope with the propeller during the 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night effort, resulting in a malfunction that kept him stuck on land. But he confiscated the victim's cell phone before fleeing.
His manifesto, published on KTLA, which is also a "Dear Public" letter, clearly shows that the former policeman would not hesitate to flee the country if it would allow him to regroup and return for revenge later against his enemies.
If unsuccessful or unable to meet objectives in these initial small-scale offensive actions, I will reassess my BDA and re-attack until objectives are met," he writes.
A blue alert was issued for nine counties in which the suspect may attempt to operate, with Irvine not included in the alert, since he achieved his alleged target there. That target, Monica Quan, was the daughter of retired Capt. Randy Quan, who represented the suspect at his 2011 hearing before the police board.
More background on Christopher Jordan Dorner reveals how he lost his job after making a false accusation against a training officer named Sgt. Teresa Evans, as well as details about the three police officer shootings he has engaged in thus far and his plans for revenge.
