Former LAPD officer
sought in Irvine slayings

Los Angeles Times, by Andrew Blankstein

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/7/2013 4:50:18 PM

A former Los Angeles police officer who wrote an online manifesto threatening to harm police officials and their families is wanted for allegedly killing the daughter of a former LAPD captain as well as the woman´s fiance. (Snip)In the online postings, Dorner specifically named the father of Monica Quan, the Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach who was found dead Sunday along with her fiance, Keith Lawrence. Randy Quan, a retired L.A. police captain, was involved in the review process that ultimately led to Dorner´s dismissal.

Comments:
Quan was his union lawyer when his matter went before the LAPD Board of Review re his grievance. In the manifesto he said that a union lawyer who had been a former LAPD captain would be there to protect the LAPD, not to represent him.

The manifesto is here:

It is long but very interesting to read. Understandably he is an Obama supporter. That is not important here. His comments about the LAPD culture are. The there has been no change since the Rodney King days.

At the moment Los Angeles KTLA-TV is following live a new search for him in Big Bear, where a pickup similar to Dorner´s was found on fire. A ground and air search (helicopters) is in progress there.

Wow, what a long list of grievances. Dorner seems like an intelligent man, but he is a very, very angry one. Having murdered three people already, including a fellow police officer, this is not going to end well for him.

On local news here they interviewed a former college friend,who was mentioned in the manifesto. He stated his surprise that Dorner became a Cop,because he was VERY left wing. Of course there was no question as to what. I do not take his manifesto as fact, it is the rantings of a paranoid who blames everything on someone else. No wonder he was fired.

In the midst of hunting him down, the PD have already shot up a truck that looked similar to his - with two asian females inside.

The also shot up another truck similar in description to Dorner´s... With a white male inside.

The truck the women were in was hit with a fusilade of bullets. One of the women reportedly suffering a severed spine and paralysis.

I haven´t heard a report as to the male´s condition.

However, the police are the only ones who can be entrusted with semi-auto rifles and 30 round magazines.

Too bad Asian females delivering newspapers and this white male managed to resemble a 6-foot tall, 270 lbs. African-American . . .

I guess the LAPD shouldn´t have fired him for ratting out his field supervisor (who reportedly kicked a guy in the face a couple times) to internal affairs. He´s a might put out with them over that it appears. And the out-of-control LAPD are shooting up innocent citizens because this guy apparently has them really, really scared. Wonder if they´ll figure out burning the truck in Big Bear was a way to suck them in - why call attention to it with a fire?

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -- [Breaking news alert, 8:48 a.m. ET] A "strange object" floating in the South China Sea is not debris from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a U.S. official told CNN on Sunday. A U.S. reconnaissance plane "thought it saw something like debris but it was a false alarm. It was not debris," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. (Snip) As multiple mysteries swirl around the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and around some of its passengers, a growing multinational fleet of dozens of ships and planes is pursuing a potentially promising lead.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Military radar indicates that the missing Boeing 777 jet may have turned back before vanishing, Malaysia´s air force chief said Sunday as authorities were investigating up to four passengers with suspicious identifications. The revelations add to the uncertainties surrounding the final minutes of flight MH370, which was carrying 239 people when it lost contact with ground controllers somewhere between Malaysia and Vietnam after leaving Kuala Lumpur early Saturday morning for Beijing. A massive international sea search has so far turned up no trace of the plane, which lost contact with the ground when the weather was

The millionaire attorney funding a ‘spoiled’ cheerleader’s lawsuit against her own parents let the teenager drink in his house, threw ‘alcoholic parties’ and apparently allowed her to have her first drop of booze, according to court documents.

And according to the Canning family, Inglesino’s wife Amy gave Rachel and her friends wine coolers in the back of a limo

A story that describes a gold heist from the San Francisco Mint at the turn of the century could explain the source of the gold coins worth $10 million that were found last month in California’s Mother Lode country.(Snip for graphic)The published news item was discovered in the Haithi Trust Digital Library and was provided by Northern California fishing guide Jack Trout, who doubles as a historian and collector of rare coins. In a story that went global last week, a couple in California’s Sierra Nevada foothills found six buried steel cans that contained 1,427 gold coins dated 1847 to 1894

Moscow - Russian stock markets Monday crashed almost 10 percent and the ruble plunged to historic lows in value against the dollar and euro, as alarm grew over the potentially disastrous economic consequences of military intervention in Ukraine. Russia´s central bank hiked its main interest rate in an emergency move to stem capital flight and the losses for the ruble, amid what risks becoming at least Russia´s worst economic crisis since 2009. (Snip) Economists warned the move risks creating a litany of further trouble for the Russian economy, which is already battling chronically slow growth.

Almost everyone has trouble sleeping once in a while – worries from the day have a tendency to stick in your brain and spill over into the night, and keep you from mentally taking the break your brain needs to recharge. But for 15% of American adults, not being able to sleep is a chronic problem that can interfere with memory and concentration. And according to the latest research, the reason may have to do with the way their brains work.

MOSCOW – Russia is planning to expand its permanent military presence outside its borders by placing military bases in a number of foreign countries, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday. Shoigu said the list includes Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, the Seychelles, Singapore and several other countries. “The talks are under way, and we are close to signing the relevant documents,” Shoigu told reporters in Moscow. The minister added that the negotiations cover not only military bases but also visits to ports in such countries on favorable conditions as well as the opening of refueling sites for Russian strategic bombers

Under the federal Affordable Care Act, taxpayers will have to subsidize a bigger slice of the health insurance coverage promised individuals in some areas of the country than in others. Some of the biggest federal subsidies will be required in portions of Colorado, Georgia and Nevada, where premiums are highest, according to a Digital First Media analysis of premiums and tax credits across 50 states, plus the District of Columbia. Far fewer tax credits will be needed in places such as Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Tucson where insurance premiums already were among the lowest in the nation. The analysis shows that tax-credit subsidies don’t

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide. He saw his approval rating crater within months of taking office; it now sits at

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

Hi, everybody. This week, I traveled to New England, where I was joined by four governors who are working to raise the minimum wage in each of their states. And they’ve also joined me in calling on Congress to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour. Because it would give nearly 800,000 Americans in their states a raise — and lift wages for about 28 million across the country. So these governors aren’t waiting for Congress to make up its mind.And in my State of the Union Address, I asked America’s business leaders to go ahead and do what they could to raise their employees’ wages, too.

“I told you so.” Those have to be four of the most satisfying words in the English language. And Mitt Romney has earned the right to speak that short sentence, over and over again, whenever he chooses. Not that he would — it would be “unbecoming,” to use one of Romney’s old-fashioned words that in 2002 had the mandarins of Political Correctness harrumphing about his “sexism,” I believe the charge was that time. But these days, Mitt looks more and more prescient, and his critics ever more deluded. First of all, Russia has become “our number one geopolitical foe,” as he put it
