LAPD Will Reopen the Case Which Led to Chris Dorner Being Fired
Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles Police Department Officer who is now on the run, has shaken the world with a riveting manifesto revealing many of the inner workings of the LAPD. The allegations of serious misconduct have led to calls for the LAPD to investigate the matter more deeply. Suspicions were further heightened when a 71-year old woman had her truck riddled with bullets because it was mistaken for the vehicle being driven by Dorner.
Does the LAPD have something to hide? It’s history as a racist and abusive police force have led some to wonder. As a result of added public scrutiny, the LAPD says that it’s going to re-open its investigation into he incident that led to Dorner being fired from the police force.
Police Chief Charlie Beck, who initially dismissed Dorner’s claims, now says that the department will investigation Dorner’s allegations to prove that the LAPD is both fair and transparent. He says that the force will “be happy to hear what he has to say” should Dorner decide to turn himself in.
The chief went further:
”I’m not doing this to appease him. I’m doing this so the community has faith in what the police department does.” He added: “This investigation has already been reviewed at multiple levelsIf I have to redo something or deal with an issue I will deal with it publicly.”
A task force has been formed to find Dorner, and a break in the weather has allowed searchers to continue looking for him. Dorner vowed revenge on those who’ve wronged him. He is now wanted for a triple homicide, killing some of the targets he listed on his public manifesto.
A truck that authorities believed to have been driven by Dorner was found in flames. Inside the truck, police found weapons, including two long-range rifles with silencers, cold-weather survival gear, along with night-vision goggles and a gas mask.
