LAPD to reopen probe into
firing of ex-cop suspected
in three slayings

Los Angeles Times, by Andrew Blankstein and Cindy Chang

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/9/2013 10:27:38 PM

Los Angeles police announced Saturday that it would reopen the investigation into the firing of Christopher Jordan Dorner from the LAPD, apparently prompting Dorner´s vengeful rampage that has left three people dead. Chief Charlie Beck is reopening the investigation because he wants “to insure the public that the LAPD is fair and transparent,” Cmdr. Andrew Smith said at a late-afternoon news conference at LAPD’s headquarters downtown. Dorner was stripped of his badge in 2009 after a police disciplinary board found him guilty of making false statements against his training officer, Teresa Evans.

Comments:
From what I could tell, it was a bad firing. But it only happened because they couldn´t get rid of him on incompetence and bad judgment grounds.

Have to agree with you there, OP.
The initial reports of Dorner´s murder spree included statements from that suspect´s father, who told him that he´d been kicked in the chest "by a cop".
I wonder what´s become of Sgt. Evans since then?

Sorry OP and #1, cannot completely agree on the incompetence as there hasn´t been anything to corroborate that. However, I believe he showed bad judgement by not toeing the "blue line" and going along with his cop buddies.

Seriously, this doesn´t absolve him from doing these killings but apparently his life had been ruined due to entries into his record. Maybe we´ll get the whole story with this "transparent" (familiar term) reopening of his case. ... Nah, it´ll be a whitewash of the LAPD. /color me cynical/

Is this to placate the public so no questions will be raised about all of the bullet holes and individuals shot by the trigger happy cops when they shot at the wrong pickups? It appears the instructions must have been to shoot first and ask questions later.

Let me tell you, I read Dorner´s manifesto. I can relate to it (if it is at all true).
I reported a supervisor who had stolen money from a crime scene! I had cold evidence he did it. The fury of Hades rained down on me. Three shift supervisors wrote simultaneous disciplinary reports accusing me of malfeasance- all total lies. I proved them to be lies. The guy resigned in the face of a complete investigation- but, it was two months of pure awful. During it, one night in a severe thunderstorm, I had to attend an emergency on the road- I was in a really dangerous situation and desperately needed help to get victims off the road and secure the situation. I called on the radio, and I could hear cops keying their mikes and laughing. "See what happens to cops who don´t play the game?". Later, one of the supervisors who falsely wrote report on me even apologized. "They ordered me to do it! You know I´m only two years from retirement, I had to do it. Sorry."
I never compromised in 11 years. After 11 years I finally could not go through another set of writing up bad cops and then go through the h**l afterward. I just gave up.
Really, it looks like this time, the LAPD cops messed with a crazy dude who just would not take their stuff- He´s crazy! Ready to blowup! And then they pushed him one inch too far. That´s what it looks like right now. But, we really need to wait for the full investigation. Right?

#3: I´m kinda with you. The LAPD´s already finished the investigation of killing the serial-killer blue pick-up? One thing for sure, that tailgate will never threaten anyone again.

Oh -- and is there a report on that neighbor´s front door that was shot 5 times by the cops? In ICU? Dead? What?

When My son left the service after special Forces ops duty he was offered a ranking job with the LAPD and refused. His reason was while his life expectancy was 3 minuets in the service it would be 1 min. with the job offered based on how that city enforced the law.
In fact he wouldn´t even live in Ca.

I think it is wonderful that so many here are capable of describing what took place with this man and LAPD and have absolutely no first hand knowledge. I´m not absolving LAPD, but this man had nothing but problems once he entered the police department. It would be nice to have some real facts first, then hang them.

I never got a chance to read the whole manifesto, but my friend brought up an interesting question. What if those murders (Quan and her fiance) were part of the set-up/frame? I thought it didn´t really make sense...but then how do we know Dorner did actually kill them? Were there witnesses? Is there any way it could have possibly been something else? Car-jacking gone wrong...someone else calling for the "sacrifice"...I dunno. Yes, it is far-fetched, but then again, it is hard to put anything past those guys anymore. My friend is the most law-abiding, straight arrow you could find, but even she has had very bad experiences with cops in SoCal.

The guy apparently started filing complaints against other officers in the LAPD right after he was hired. He had to know that he did not fit in with the LAPD culture.

At that point most sane people would have moved on to bigger and better things. He did not, and now has embarked on his own personal suicide by cop mission. So the chances are very high that when he is encountered by law enforcement that he will get his wish.

Right or wrong, you can only take so much away from a proud man before he lashes out. If he feels that there is no recourse, that he is in a corner and has not been taught how to regulate his emotions all bets are off. I teach my daughter, be nice to all and defend the weak because anyone can snap.

Read the manifesto. If the facts bear out, bad things come to bad people.

I can´t believe there´s people actually saying this guy´s 3 premeditated murders are somehow justifiable.The reason he´s such a big anti-hero to the left,is he´s a firm Obama supporter and all around liberal. But if Obama can murder people in the open range,hey why shouldn´t that apply to everybody?

It´s not so easy to fire a cop. There had to be much more in his file. Cops are in a union, after all.

I have handled police officer disciplinary cases, from suspension to discharge.
In this case, some of you are reaching conclusions not based on evidence in the record, but a collection of observations.

This fellow would have gone through arbitration, or court, or both. His termination would have had to have been proven to be for just cause, to the satisfaction of the arbitrator. and/or to the level of proof required in a trial.
Reopening his case is sort of like the president apologizing to muslims for that obscure video.

I don´t have any idea about the literal rights and wrongs of this case, but just want to note the Liberal dilemma faced by the LAPD back in the day: they had the sacred cow of race in one corner, but 2 sacred cows, race and gender in the other corner. Their decision was easy. Dorner was out. The facts were superfluous.

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning.

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit.

Amnesty: President Obama often laments "our broken immigration system" as a reason for his failure to enforce its laws. But as a wave of illegals is about to descend here, the hard fact is that it´s his own policies that broke it. The nonpartisan Inter-American Development Bank and the Migration Policy Institute both reported optimal conditions for a big wave of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America soon. Based on the slowdown in China´s economy, a recovery in U.S. low-skilled jobs such as construction, and rising U.S. interest rates, it´s fair enough.

KANO, Nigeria – A child bride forced into marriage in Nigeria killed a groom and three of his friends with a poisoned meal, police said Thursday. Fourteen-year-old Wasila Umaru was married last week to 35-year-old Umaru Sani, according to assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia. Over the weekend, the groom invited a dozen friends to celebrate at his Ungwar Yansoro village, about 60 miles from the northern city of Kano.

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Last week, the online dating site OkCupid switched up its homepage for Mozilla Firefox users. Upon opening the site, a message appeared encouraging members to curb their use of Firefox because the company´s new CEO, Brendan Eich, allegedly opposes equality for gay couples—specifically, he donated $1000 to the campaign for the anti-gay Proposition 8 in 2008. "We´ve devoted the last ten years to bringing people—all people—together," the message read. "If individuals like Mr. Eich had their way, then roughly 8% of the relationships we´ve worked so hard to bring about would be illegal." The company´s action went viral, and within

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
