By now, you've heard about the massive manhunt for Christopher Jordan Dorner, the former LAPD cop who is accused of killing three people, including one police officer, and injuring others in a shooting rampage across Southern California over the past week. He is considered armed and dangerous, and reportedly out for revenge: Police say ex-cop was bent on exacting revenge.
Dorner has apparently harbored a grudge since being fired from the Los Angeles Police Department four years ago, and launched a campaign of deadly revenge against the LAPD personnel he believes responsible for his downfall. This includes retired LAPD captain Randal Quan, whose daughter Monica Quan and her fiance Keith Lawrence were both found shot dead in a parking garage last Sunday.
Dorner was with the department from 2002 until 2009, when he was fired for making false statements against another officer.Oh yeah, the manifesto. On his Facebook page, Dorner threatened revenge and "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against police and their families, saying he would stalk them "where you work, live, eat, and sleep." He's still on the loose, and obviously, has cops on high alert: A cop's nightmare.
Quan's father, Randal Quan, was a former LAPD captain who became a lawyer in retirement. He represented Donner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Donner at the time of his dismissal, LAPD Capt. William Hayes told The Associated Press.
Randal Quan, who the LAPD said was the first Chinese-American captain in department history, retired in 2002. He later served as chief of police at Cal Poly Pomona and went on to practice law.
Police said Dorner's manifesto included threats against members of the LAPD.
"We are looking at the manifesto and will do an assessment in terms of the threat against those listed in it, and determine what level of protection each of them will need," Hayes said.
