Adding fuel to the gun control debate, a Southern California law enforcement officer with military training has killed 3 and, in a released manifesto, promises to go after more law enforcement officers as well as their family members. An all out manhunt is underway in much of the southern portion of the State. For those who argue our safety should be placed solely in the hands of the state while guns are banned or limited for ordinary citizens, the obvious question is: Who is going to protect you from the police? Do you really want to be limited to a 4-shot hunting rifle when defending your family from a military trained killer with a grudge?

Riverside – A former Los Angeles cop with military training vowed war against other men in blue Thursday, according to police — leaving one officer dead days after he allegedly killed two other people to begin a wave of retribution for being fired.
Jittery police searched a huge swath of Southern California — from San Diego to Riverside to Los Angeles — for Christopher Jordan Dorner.
He’s a 270-pound former Navy lieutenant professing his venom against LAPD officers he claimed ruined his life by forcing him out of his dream job, then threatened them, their families and, in fact, any other police officer in any locale.
Thursday morning’s shootings of a Riverside police officer and two other officers came one day after Irvine, California, police named Dorner a suspect in the double slayings of a woman — identified by Los Angeles police as the daughter of a retired LAPD officer — and her fiance.
Dorner blamed the retired officer for bungling his appeal to get his job back, according to a letter he wrote complaining of mistreatment by the LAPD. In that letter — provided to CNN by an LAPD source — Dorner vowed to wage a violent war of retribution against police officers and their families.
“I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty,” Dorner wrote in the letter.
“I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours.”
The fear was apparent Thursday in downtown Los Angeles, as police wearing body armor patrolled outside their own iconic headquarters. Commanders issued orders to keep all of the department’s officers on duty.
The mood in Riverside was similar, where two police officers had been shot earlier, and one died. Police there sealed off intersections, for a time patrolling with rifles hoisted to their shoulders.
“My opinion of the suspect is unprintable,” said Riverside police Chief Sergio Diaz, who added the suspect or his case has “no connection” to his city. “The manifesto, I think, speaks for itself (as) evidence of a depraved and abandoned mind and heart.”
Police also were on edge Thursday around the area, including in Torrance, where Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck said LAPD officers guarding one of Dorner’s alleged targets mistakenly opened fire on a blue pickup truck that resembled one Dorner is said to be driving.
The gunfire left two people wounded, Beck said. Torrance police also fired on another blue pickup, but no one was injured in that incident, according to a senior law enforcement source.
Police have good reason to be fearful, the chief said.
“Of course he knows what he’s doing. We trained him,” Beck said. “He was also a member of the armed forces. It is extremely worrisome and scary, especially to the officers involved.”
1 cop dies in ‘cowardly ambush’
It all started Sunday when Dorner allegedly killed two people in Irvine, according to police.
Police identified the victims as Monica Quan and her fiance Keith Lawrence.
Quan, 27, was the daughter of retired Los Angeles police officer Randal Quan, LAPD Officer Tenesha Dobine confirmed to CNN. In his letter, Dorner said Quan had handled his appeal.
On Tuesday, Dormer checked into the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites on San Diego’s massive naval base, Cmdr. Brad Fagan said. Dormer likely had access to the hotel from having been honorably discharged from the Navy Reserve — which would mean he’d have an ID card — said the Navy spokesman.
“He did not physically check out” Wednesday as expected, Fagan told reporters Thursday, while adding “we don’t have any reason to believe he’s (still) on the base.”
Police in San Diego say a man who could have been Dorner tried to hijack a boat there on Wednesday. Someone later found a wallet containing Dorner’s identification and an LAPD detective’s badge near the San Diego airport, according to police. It was unclear whether the badge was legitimate.
By about 1 a.m. Thursday, the scene had shifted about 100 miles north to Corona, California.
There, a pair of LAPD officers on a protection detail were flagged down by a citizen who reported seeing the suspect’s vehicle, LAPD Deputy Chief Jose Perez said.
The officers chased the vehicle and caught up to it on an off-ramp on the I-15 highway,
“The officers were fired upon with a shoulder weapon,” Perez said, with one of them suffering a “graze wound” to his head. The police returned fire, while the suspect set off once again.
About 20 minutes later, two police officers were in their car at a stop light in Riverside when what’s believed to be Doren pulled up beside them.
That driver unleashed “multiple rounds” from a rifle at the officers — riddling the cop car with bullets and leaving a 34-year-old officer, who had been on the Riverside force for 11 years, dead, according to Diaz. The other officer, a 27-year-old, was “seriously wounded but we expect a full recovery,” the Riverside police chief said.
It was “a cowardly ambush,” Diaz said.
A good Samaritan picked up one of their police radios and called dispatchers to send help, Riverside police said.
Suspect calls attacks ‘a necessary evil’
Dorner is a former U.S. Navy Reserve lieutenant who worked with river warfare units and a mobile inshore undersea warfare unit, among other assignments, according to Pentagon records obtained by CNN. He also provided security on oil platforms in Iraq.
He was rated as a rifle marksman and pistol expert, according to the records. His last day in the Navy was February 1.
After the police department’s Board of Rights rejected his appeal, he took the case to court. A judge ruled against his appeal in October 2011, according to court records.
Beck, the Los Angeles police chief, said Thursday that Dorner’s case had been “thoroughly reviewed” and he said the department would not apologize to Dorner or clear his name.
In his letter, Dorner complained that he had been railroaded out of the department after reporting police brutality by another officer. He also complained of a continuing culture of racism and brutality in the LAPD.
He said attacks are “a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name.”
In the letter, Dorner warned police to “look your wives/husbands and surviving children directly in the face and tell them the truth as to why your children are dead.”
Such a chilling warning prompted Los Angeles police to set up 40 protective details in an effort to safeguard people listed in Dorner’s letter, Beck said.
He acknowledged it was taxing the department, which has been placed under tactical alert — meaning all officers must stay on duty.
“It’s extremely, extremely manpower intensive,” Beck said. “But the safety of my employees, people that come on the job to protect the lives of strangers, is extremely important to me and I will expend whatever resource is necessary.”
Dorner was with the department from 2005 until 2008, when he was fired for making false statements.
Randy Quan, who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Dorner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Dorner at the time of his dismissal, LAPD Capt. William Hayes told The Associated Press Wednesday night.
According to documents from a court of appeals hearing in October 2011, Dorner was fired from the LAPD after he made a complaint against his field-training officer, saying in the course of an arrest she had kicked a suspect who was a schizophrenic with severe dementia.
After an investigation, Dorner was fired for making false statements.
Authorities in Big Bear have spotted fresh tracks believed to be those of a fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer wanted in connection with a series of shootings and are combing the area for him, a Fire Department official told The Times.
Big Bear Lake Fire Department Asst. Chief Mark Mills also said the burning pickup discovered on a forest road has been linked to Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, sought in connection with a series of shootings that have left three people dead and two wounded.
The truck was discovered hours into an intensive manhunt for Dorner that spanned Southern California. Although sources said there had been multiple reported sightings of Dorner’s truck in the Big Bear area on Thursday, the burnt truck was too badly charred to immediately confirm it was his.
Meanwhile, the mountain community locked down schools and closed the nearby Bear Mountain Resort as a fatigue-clad SWAT team walked through the woods, rifles drawn.
Several law enforcement agencies are involved in the manhunt for Dorner and alerts have been issued all across California and in Nevada. The Los Angeles Police Department had dispatched units across the region to protect at least 40 officers and others named in a rambling online manifesto that law enforcement officials attribute to Dorner.
Law enforcement authorities said they were concerned about Dorner’s military background and weapons training. The lengthy online message allegedly written by the former Navy Reserve lieutenant threatened “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against police.
Early Thursday, two women delivering newspapers in Torrance were shot by Los Angeles police who were guarding an officer named in the manifesto.
The women, shot in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue, were taken to area hospitals, Torrance police Lt. Devin Chase said. One suffered a minor wound, and the other was struck twice and listed in stable condition, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck told reporters.
“Tragically,” Beck said, “we believe this is a case of mistaken identity.”

L.A. authorities have now offered a $1,000,000 reward for information leading to the capture/neutralization of Dorner. Charlie Sheen has made a public plea to Dorner to contact him. A gold rush of bounty hunters may arrive on the scene as a consequence of the offer. Citizens would do well to stay out of the line of fire between the competing treasure hunters and jittery LEO’s. Black males should probably leave the State out of self preservation until this drama ends.
“We will not tolerate anyone undermining the security of this community,” Mayor Villaraigosa said at a news conference at LAPD headquarters downtown. “We will not tolerate this reign of terror.” [LAPD can’t stand the competition.]
Cops Deliberately Torch Cabin
The following audio contains admissions by police of torching the cabin in which ex-cop Chris Dorner died. The fire started immediately after incendiary teargas canisters were fired into it. The scenario is reminiscent of the tragic end of the many women and children who died in the Waco Holocaust some years ago. Although the government denied responsibility (now they would, wouldn’t they?), many critics believe the FBI deliberately set the fire which consumed the Davidians there. Even the feds are reluctant to admit they burn women and children alive…unless they’re brown living in foreign places. Perhaps they were a little off their game at Ruby Ridge?
Authorities Weasel On $1,000,000 Reward
Ironically, L.A. authorities say no one will likely get the million dollar reward offer for information leading to Dorner’s capture/conviction since they killed him. One spokesperson called it a ‘no brainer’. Dorner went on his lethal vengeful rampage in an effort to expose the corruption in the LAPD. Arguably, they might have need of the money for a settlement offer arising as a result of their having gunned down an elderly Hispanic Grandmother and her daughter in a hail of bullets having misidentified the pair as Dorner while they were delivering newspapers.
