Law enforcement personnel throughout southern California and nearby states are currently on a massive manhunt for former LAPD officer and U.S. Navy Reservist, Christopher Jordan Dorner. The vengeful ex-cop recently posted an online manifesto on Facebook detailing his violent, disturbing plan to murder several individuals, including former LAPD colleagues and their families. Dorner is already suspected of murdering Cal State Fullerton basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiancé Keith Lawrence on Sunday, Feb. 3. Dorner is also suspected of shooting at three police officers early Thursday morning (Feb. 7), wounding one fatally. Over 40 protection details have since been assigned to possible targets of Dorner, who is still considered armed and dangerous. Continue on to read the full transcript of Dorner's shocking and morbid online manifesto.
As Mstarz originally reported:
Irvine police Chief David L. Maggard announced during a Wednesday night news conference that 33-year-old Dorner, also a former U.S. Navy Reservist, is the main suspect in the violent shootings of Quan (28) and Lawrence (27). The couple was found dead of multiple gunshot wounds in their car parked near their condominium in Irvine, Orange County on Sunday night. Quan was an assistant women's basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton and Lawrence was a public safety officer at the University of Southern California. The murders shocked and disheartened the community.
Dorner is also suspected of shooting at three police officers early Thursday morning after the cops tried to apprehend him for the killings. One police officer died during the failed attempt to arrest Dorner. He also shot at innocent civilians.
Maggard explains that Dorner was dismissed from the LAPD back in 2009. He went on to implicate himself in the Quan/Lawrence killings with a multi-page online manifesto he wrote that was later obtained by police. Dorner laid out his murderous plans in the online message board, threatening more violence against the prestigious LA family who he believes got him fired. Dorner allegedly blames Quan's father, Capt. Randy Quan, for getting him fired from police department. At one point in his disturbing online message, Dorner wrote, "I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own ... (so) I am terminating yours."
Dorner was with the LAPD from 2005 until 2008, when he was fired for making false statements. LAPD Captain William Hayes told the AP Wednesday evening that Capt. Randy Quan (who later became a lawyer in retirement) represented Dorner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ultimately ruled against Dorner at the time of his dismissal.
Here is the entire Facebook manifesto, allegedly detailing Dorner's murderous plan. At one point he writes,"I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty." Dorner also asserts that the massive manhunt pursuit will result in his ultimate demise: "Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That's what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name."
The avid search for Dorner continues. During a recent press conference, police Chief Charlie Beck said that he hopes Dorner will surrender because "nobody else needs to die." He also stated that there had been a "night of extreme tragedy in the Los Angeles area" and that all measures were being implemented to ensure continued officer safety.
