The scene in southern California, appears to be something like a scene out of Training Day.
A manhunt is on across three states for a former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner. He’s being held responsible for the shooting deaths of a woman and her fiance’ after a manifesto was discovered by LAPD that linked him to her father. In the process of hunting Dorner, he allegedly killed one officer and wounded another.
The woman is Monica Quan, 28, an assistant women’s basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton. Her father is former police captain turned attorney, Randal Quan, who was mentioned in a target list attached to the manifesto posted on Dorner’s Facebook page, according to the Huffington Post.
Attached to the manifesto was a rant that promised harm upon certain police officers and those associated with them. Dorner promised to:
“…bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare…Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared,” he wrote at one point in his manifesto, later saying, “Self-preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death as I died long ago.”
Well, that’s a good thing because the California, Nevada, and Mexican authorities have pulled out the stops to ensure his rampage is halted…abruptly. They mean serious business because Dorner is a military-trained marksman that earned a rifle marksman ribbon and pistol expert medal in the naval reserves. Also, according to the report:
“He was assigned to a naval undersea warfare unit and various aviation training units, according to military records, taking a leave from the LAPD to be deployed to Bahrain in 2006 and 2007.”
In other words, he knows how to hide, hit, and cause the damage he is promising.
