Anderson Cooper Recieved Bullet Riddled Coin, DVD etc from LA Fugitive Dorner

Before his shooting spree ... Christopher Dorner sent CNN anchor Anderson Cooper a parcel, containing a note, a DVD, and a coin riddled with bullet holes -- so says Cooper.

Cooper just tweeted about the package, saying he only learned today the package was sent to him.

According to CNN, the package was delivered to Cooper's assistant on February 1st -- and contained a hand-labeled DVD with a sticky note that read "I never lied." Wolf Blitzer said the note appeared to refer to when Dorner was fired from the LAPD in 2008.

It also contained a coin wrapped in duct tape, which was inscribed with "Thanks but no thanks, Will Bratton." Bratton served as the LAPD Chief until 2009. The coin was also inscribed with the initials "IMOA," which typically stands for "Imagine a More Open America."

The coin -- reportedly given by the LAPD as a souvenir -- was riddled with bullet holes.

In the message, Dorner includes Anderson Cooper in a list of journalists whom he admires, saying, "Keep up the great work."

4. How does one riddle a coin with bullet holes?

We used to tape coins to targets and shoot them, but a couple of hits would pretty much obliterate them.

6. I use a .17 HMR and you can put 5 in a penny if your good...

And I've done it at 50 yards...

The trick is keeping the coin from flying off & getting lost...Clear tape works Ok...


I'm a target shooter & its kinda a parlor trick or a nice keychain novelty.The .17 bullet travels so fast it melts a clean hole leaving the penny/coin perfectly flat.

7. What make/model do you have?

That sounds interesting.

I want to get back into target shooting, but I don't want to throw a lot of expensive lead around.

My trick is to take my Gamo .177 pellet rifle and light kitchen matches with it. But I cannot do it at 50 yds.

8. It isn't IMOA it's written 1 M.O.A. from what I saw.

1 minute of angle.

Gunner talk for a tight grouping of shots at a given distance.
