LAPD to reopen probe into fugitive ex-cop’s firing

BIG BEAR LAKE, CALIF. Los Angeles police say they will reopen the disciplinary proceedings that led to the firing of a former officer who’s wanted in three killings over the past several days.

Cmdr. Andrew Smith said Saturday that the department will reopen the investigation that apparently has led Christopher Dorner to seek revenge against former LAPD colleagues who he believed cost him his law enforcement career.

Dorner alleged in an online manifesto that he was wrongly fired for reporting that his training officer used excessive force.

Police Chief Charlie Beck tells KCBS-TV the department will thoroughly re-examine Dorner’s allegation to ensure the public that the LAPD is fair and transparent. He says if Dorner wants to surrender, the LAPD will “be happy to hear what he has to say.”

Meanwhile, a scaled-back search party took advantage of a break from stormy weather Saturday to hunt for Dorner, using heat-sensing helicopters and fanning out in fresh snow as vacationing families and weekend skiers frolicked nearby.

The stark blue skies that emerged after a Friday snowstorm allowed San Bernardino County sheriff’s choppers to fly low over the forest and SWAT teams to look for tracks and other clues that might lead to Dorner, 33, whose burned-out pickup truck was discovered in town Thursday.

Authorities suspect Dorner in a series of attacks in Southern California over the past several days that left three people dead, including a police officer. Authorities say he has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues who he believed cost him his law enforcement career.

Where and when will Dorner appear next?
On “CBS This Morning: Saturday,” CBS News senior correspondent John Miller reported that Dorner’s abandonment of his truck because of a broken axle has prompted authorities to believe that he has shifted “from being the hunter to the hunted.”

Inside the truck, CBS News correspondent Carter Evans reports from Los Angeles that, according to police sources, investigators recovered weapons, including two long-range rifles with silencers, cold-weather survival gear, along with night-vision goggles and a gas mask.

It’s unknown what supplies Dorner was able to carry into the remote mountains east of Los Angeles, Evans reports.

Despite the manhunt’s shift to the mountains, Miller reports that authorities are making sure police will maintain a presence at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles by calling in officers initially scheduled to have the day off and having others work overtime.

The manhunt didn’t appear to bother the majority of tourists intent on enjoying Saturday’s perfect winter weather, which made for strikingly odd contrasts: the sound of barking bloodhounds mixed with rap music blaring off the ski slopes; a family with kids strolling by a deputy, who was clad in full tactical gear and practicing his aim on a small snowdrift.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s Detective Chad Johnson said he and others were intent on finding Dorner but also looking for other telltale signs of his whereabouts.

“There’s a million clues in the mountain. You’ve just got to be patient to find them,” Johnson said.

Johnson said the search includes mountainous areas that are very steep and high climbs that often end in cliffs.

“It’s a challenging day of work,” he said.

Saturday was the third full day of the massive multi-agency effort now centered on this resort town about 80 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles. Investigators continue to analyze the burned-out truck discovered Thursday, trying to determine whether Dorner torched it or if it caught fire for other reasons.

The search once included 125 officers but that number was reduced to 50 on Saturday, according to the sheriff’s office.

Officers have been going door to door examining hundreds of vacant cabins, aware that they could be walking into a trap set by the well-trained former Navy reservist who knows their tactics and strategies.

“Christopher Dorner is probably one of the most dangerous fugitives that law enforcement has gone after in recent times,” said Clint Van Zandt, former supervisor of FBI’s profiling unit. “The challenge is, with his law enforcement and military background, he’s very competent with weapons.”

Sheriff’s Detective Jeremiah MacKay, who began his patrol at 5 a.m. Saturday, said the operation was both massive and tactically complex.

“This one you just never know if the guy’s going to pop out, or where he’s going to pop out. We’re hoping this comes to a close without more casualties. The best thing would be for him to give up,” MacKay said.

On Friday night, authorities served a search warrant and collected evidence from a Buena Park storage unit as part of their investigation. Irvine police Lt. Julia Engen wouldn’t elaborate on the nature of the evidence or say who had rented the unit.

Earlier Friday, another warrant was served at a La Palma house belonging to Dorner’s mother. Officers collected 10 bags of evidence, including five electronic items.

Police said officers still were guarding more than 40 people mentioned as targets in a rant that authorities said Dorner posted on Facebook. He vowed to use “every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordnance and survival training I’ve been given” to bring “warfare” to the LAPD and its families.

Dorner served in the Navy, earning a rifle marksman ribbon and pistol expert medal. He was assigned to a naval undersea warfare unit and various aviation training units, according to military records. He took leave from the LAPD for a six-month deployment to Bahrain in 2006 and 2007.

Last Friday was his last day with the Navy and also the day CNN’s Anderson Cooper received a package that contained a note on it that read, in part, “I never lied.” A coin riddled with bullet holes that former Chief William Bratton gave out as a souvenir was also in the package.

Police said it was a sign of planning by Dorner before the killing began.

On “CBS This Morning” Friday, Bratton described Dorner as “an incredibly dangerous individual” and reacted to the damaged coin.

“When you see that that coin that was given in friendship and respect has three bullet holes, it’s certainly very chilling,” Bratton said.

On Sunday, police say Dorner shot and killed a couple in a parking garage at their condominium in Irvine. The woman was the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing.

Dorner wrote in his manifesto that he believed the retired captain had represented the interests of the department over his.

Hours after authorities identified Dorner as a suspect in the double murder, police believe Dorner shot and grazed an LAPD officer in Corona and then used a rifle to ambush two Riverside police officers early Thursday, killing one and seriously wounding the other.

    LAPD good and transparent my ass! Reopen the investigation to appear as if oonuh care but come to the same corrupt conclusion because they can’t afford the embarrassment and lawsuits and that opens up pandora’s box to review other cases and victims now coming forward claiming they were brutalized. That will never happen but for political purposes and PR purposes, this must be done.

    Of all the times when the truck fi break dung, it chose now. I am concerned for his survival in the harsh weather on minimal food and survival gear. They knew what they were up against, Rambo had night vision googles, sniper scope, silencer and survival gear. Run Rambo Run!

  • sexyteeready says:

    Foxy I agree with you 1000%

  • DFDR says:

    Hi Met, Big up Foxy Lady!!! This is a clever man his manifesto is his defence if there is any defence at all… The media will dig up his story/case hence for all to know the reason for his brutal actions and many will sympathize with him…

    He has two wise choices now… 1. Sorround himself with some pastors (like Al Sharpton)and people he trust and go in a police station to give up himself…
    2. Go out as a real soldier on the battlefield as he is.

  • soap opera says:

    so thats what it takes to get them to pay attention, madman my ass we always have to be 100% more brilliant to get ahead in this country. Mr. president you can relate, do something.

  • goodso says:

  • Belly Bang says:

    A mother and daughter newspaper delivery team who were mistakenly shot by Los Angeles police hunting for a fugitive former cop will get a new pickup truck courtesy of the department.

    LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith says the department’s Chief Charlie Beck met with the women in their Torrance home Saturday to apologize and tell them he had arranged for someone to donate a new pickup truck.

    The truck will be donated early this week, Smith said.

    The women were accidentally struck by gunfire in the pre-dawn hours Thursday after it was reported that Christopher Dorner was sighted in the area. Beck called it a case of mistaken identity.

    Dorner has vowed to avenge his firing from the department, which he wrote in an online manifesto was retaliation for reporting officer violence

  • Met says:

    belly dem gwine get some good money mi glad dem neva dead

  • Observer says:

    if a dis man mi fadda a talk bout an em kill innocent ppl juss because em get injustice mi naw tek em side sorry but nopes

  • Anonymous says:

    @ 10.59 everyone reacts differently, when you are innocent and someone lies on you it nuh nice. obviously dis man have some kind of principle weh him believe innna, as far as him concern him career dun and his name is being dragged through the mud, for what? for standing up for what he believes in?for informing on a fellow co-worker who went outside of his jurisdiction and assaulted someone who is disabled? why should he be penalised? in life you have to stand up for what you believe in and this is his way (unfortunately). if he did not published that manifesto where fellow citizens are able to understand and realise that there are underlying reasons for his behaviour it would go down as if he is mad and that would be the end of it, period. His actions might let police forces around the world reevalutate the forces standard that is now lacking. as peace officers we expect the police to set an example, can you emagine if he as a police officer can experience what he has mentioned, what is the ordinary citizen experiencing? someone has to draw attention to this abuse. i hope he is ok, and gives himself up to someone in authority whom he can trust so that this case can go to trial. I doubt this though, because from the amount of names that has been mentioned and what they are being accused of, many high ranking officers look likely to be put under investigation which could result in them losing their jobs and with it their pensions.
    during the days of slavery, many of our ancestors gave up their lives because they believed that we should not be held in bondage, and they did so with the hope that some day we would be free. It is because of those unselfish ancestors why most of us in the west are here today. i am just so sorry that it takes something like this to alert us and the media to tthe extent of the lapd police corruption. Totally unacceptable.

  • E! News said this morning some Hollywood actor is asking him to contact him so he can help him give himself up. I want him to be taken in alive, so he can talk alll he knows

  • Belly Bang says:

    On Saturday Chief Charlie Beck said officials would re-examine the allegations by Dorner, 33, that his law enforcement career was undone by racist colleagues. While he promised to hear out Dorner if he surrenders, Beck stressed that he was ordering a review of his 2007 case because he takes the allegation of racism in his department seriously.

    “I do this not to appease a murderer. I do it to reassure the public that their police department is transparent and fair in all the things we do,” the chief said in a statement.
