Christopher Dorner’s Intended Victims Sound Off

Emada and Phil Tingirides are married police officers with the LAPD, and they were on Dorner’s execution list. The couple and their six children were the intended targets of Dorner’s rage because Captain Phil Tingirides once recommended that Dorner be terminated from his boyhood dream position. “Never, ever did I think somebody would go to this extent in their rage over the discipline that was handed to them,” he said.

Dorner went on a murderous rampage over allegations of racism and wrongful termination with the LAPD, targeting individuals who he thought unfairly mistreated him. That “mistreatment” was detailed in a manifesto on Facebook that captured the world’s attention, much to the chagrin of the LAPD. During Dorner’s revolt, the Tingirides family lay under siege, wondering if the next rounds fired would be aimed at them. The family was placed under 24-hour home surveillance for their own protection. In tears, Sgt. Emada Tingirides said, “there were many times we broke down, but we’d go to the garage and cry.”

The couple admitted that they did not read the Dorner Manisfesto to completion, but they fundamentally disagree with Dorner’s assessment of racism within and throughout the LAPD. But the current LAPD Police Chief, Charlie Beck, has promised to investigate Dorner’s claim, which has been blamed as the reason for this tragedy in the first place.

  1. Thank God his rampage ended before this family or any others were hurt. Lots of crazies in this world.

  2. Sadly, it seems that Dorner snapped…and he lost touch with reality….and went on that rampage. Dorner may have had real complaints…or he may have needed long term therapy. Sometimes police officers are under so much stress that they need professional help. Maybe that is something that LAPD needs to examine also….how much counseling is needed for officers who feel over-whelmed.

    Based on what was told on TV and other media…Dorner’s firing did seem like it was over-board. What did he do that was so awful to fire him? It is not clear…but “making a statement about another officer’s kicking someone” — does not seem like a firing would fit that problem.

    Even if he were the victim of some injustice… there were other ways for him to deal with it…starting with filing formal complaints, lawsuits, etc.

    Most Black people have been victimized at one time or another or in one form or another by ‘white racism.’ But Dr. King taught us that the road of ‘violent revenge’ is not the way to go.
