The Media Loves Manhunts: Can Chris Dorner Survive?


Only in California, home of the late Huey P Newton and then the Symbionese Liberation Army that went several steps further, do characters emerge that transcend every action movie fantasy and stereotype, characters like an ex-cop who has declared war on the police on, of all places, Facebook in a 6000 word statement that’s being described as “rambling.” (He never claimed he was writer.)

Christopher Jordan Dorner is being pictured as the “mad man” of the hour, playing himself in the manhunt of the week, accused of three murders that he denies, or appears to deny as the author of a statement that’s being labeled a manifesto adding political weight to what began as personal crusade for self-vindication.

He is a presented as an irrational and scary armed black man out for revenge. So far, he has eluded capture, outmaneuvering a small army of stalkers and posses in blue.

Helvetica;mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>He’s being pictured as a well-trained killing machine with every police force out to get him, perhaps Bin Laden style, before he gets a chance to speak to the public about his detailed grievances with the LAPD. He is clearly at war with his former colleagues, writing “Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name.”

10.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"”>As of Friday night, reports the NY Times, he has slipped away: ‘ 10.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:

Georgia;mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>Cindy Johnston, who lives in San Dimas, was in the Big Bear Lake area for the weekend to ski with her family and said: “We’re being a little bit more careful, but that’s about it. We’re keeping the kids closer together and not going out so much at night. I think he’d be stupid if he was here, and he doesn’t seem stupid. There are too many people looking for him….”

10.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:
Georgia;mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>Remember those words: “He doesn’t seem stupid.”

font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:Georgia;mso-bidi-language:
EN-US”>He is treating his attempt to escape as a war-game steeped in the aphabet soup lexicon of covert ops, telling his former colleagues:  license plate frames are great target indicators and make target selection even easier.

10.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:
Tahoma;mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>I will conduct DA operations to destroy, exploit and seize designated targets. If unsuccessful or unable to meet objectives in these initial small-scale offensive actions, I will reassess my BDA and re-attack until objectives are met. I have nothing to lose. My personal casualty means nothing. Just alike AAF’s, ACM’s, and AIF’s, you cannot prevail against an enemy combatant who has no fear of death. An enemy who embraces death is a lose, lose situation for their enemy combatants.”

Mike Ruppert, a former LAPD cop, often accused of being a conspiracy nut is not buying the official story. He writes:

font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>Chris Dorner could possibly break down all of law enforcement in SoCal and also foment internal revolts inside law enforcement.

font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>He is a supremely-skilled warrior and living proof of the psychosis that comes from training warriors, telling them they are honorable, and then tasking them to kill women and non-combatants exactly as he is now doing here at home. He apparently has a little more control of his ROE than US personnel have used in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.

font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>I am still digesting. I have read most of his so-called "manifesto" which is posted here. It is not a manifesto. It is an indictment. It makes complete sense to me. I believe all of his allegations and I suspect that Shamar Thomas and Captain Ray Lewis do too. While not condoning, but absolutely understanding his reasoning, I think he is being taken with the utmost seriousness because he can do real damage to institutions and "the s…ystem" as a whole.

font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>I can say several things with certainty.

font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>He is scaring the shit out of people in Washington, DC, at the FBI, at the DoJ, at the Pentagon and at CIA. This is a warrior capable of wreaking havoc. He's already provoked a mistaken-identity shooting of innocents in Torrance.”

mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>Adds Ruppert, “At this moment I am absolutely certain that covert CIA/JSOC hit teams are being deployed all over Southern California. Their urgent orders would be to "kill on sight". The last thing anyone wants now is for him to come in alive and testify.’

font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>That may be, but there is no evidence yet for this hyperbolic and sensational claim.

font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>He does make more sense in his conclusion: “I just hope he understands that he can do far more damage alive than dead.”

line-height:150%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>The plot is thickening. What makes it fascinating too is that Dorner is no ideological lefty—he says he likes Bush Sr. He references his detailed experiences in the police culture. They sound very believable, but this is a culture that is barely covered and where dissidents rarely enjoy any sympathy.

line-height:150%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>My suggestion to him is to do what another alleged “cop killer” did in New York in the 1950’s. His name was Jerry Rosenberg, a.k.a “Jerry The Jew,” who became well known later during the Attica rebellion.

line-height:150%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:LucidaGrande;
mso-bidi-language:EN-US”>Armed police surrounded the building. Threats were made. But the paper turned him over in the glare of publicity, and he was not killed or brutalized. He was, however, later convicted on a life sentence on a felony murder charge that said if he took part in the robbery, he could be held accountable for what happened there. He spent years behind bars as a successful prison lawyer.
