Former LA police officer sought in murder of women's basketball coach (story update)

IRVINE, Calif. -- Police said Wednesday night they are looking for a former Los Angeles police officer suspected in the shootings of a Cal State Fullerton basketball coach and her fiance, and they say the man is armed and dangerous.

Former LAPD officer and U.S. Navy reservist Christopher Jordan Dorner is a suspect in the killings of Monica Quan, 28, and Keith Lawrence, 27, who were found shot to death in their car at a parking structure Sunday night, Irvine police Chief David L. Maggard said at a news conference.

Maggard says Dorner implicated himself in the killings with a multi-page manifesto he wrote that was obtained by police, but no further details were given on the manifesto or its contents.

Police do not know Dorner's whereabouts, and authorities were seeking the public's help in finding the suspect.

3. Can't really blame this one on guns though

He was an x cop and well trained. We trust cops with guns (because they don't cast a magical voodoo spell over government people and make them kill, only us civilians should not be trusted)

No this one might actually have something to do with the mental state of the person holding the device. Revenge maybe for losing his job, something - in other words, there might just perhaps maybe possibly be a reason behind the actions that we should look into this time.

Of course we won't know for sure until a priest examines the weapon to see if it has demons and such...

2. Oddly enough I find Dorner's story about being wrongfully terminated credible

, it does NOT mean I condone what he is doing.

It looks like LAPD's cover up of the police sgt kicking someone in the face turned what was a decent human being into a disturbed murderer.
