Yesterday in Los Angeles, a small group of protestors rallied outside of LAPD headquarters in response to the recent death of ex-LAPD cop Christopher Dorner, accused murderer of four and the subject of an extensive manhunt, according to U.S. News.
Organizers for the protest who want Dorner’s name cleared expected about 200 people to join in the protest; but only about two dozen showed up carrying signs that read "end police brutality" and "clear his name."
And the small group of activists has a name: "We Stand With Christopher Dorner."
Those gathered in Dorner’s name said they didn’t exactly support Dorner’s actions and methods, but wanted to speak out against police corruption and police brutality.
The group believes that Dorner was unjustly fired by the LAPD in 2008 and supports Dorner’s claims of racism and being treated unfairly during his firing.
The ex-cop died on Feb. 12 after authorities finally caught up with him in a Big Bear mountain cabin following an extensive, multi-agency search for him began on Feb. 7 after he killed one of his fellow police officers and a couple from Irvine, Calif., and attempted to kill three more of his former colleagues.
Those protesting yesterday also said that they wished authorities could have taken Dorner alive so that “his side of the story” could be heard.
