Facebook Fan Pages Support Manhunt Suspect Chris Dorner





Chris Dorner naval photo
Perhaps the public's outrage at years of police brutality and cover- ups is justified, or perhaps people simply have their heads planted firmly in their own asses. In either case, fan pages supporting accused cop killer Chris Dorner have been popping up around Facebook. Featuring titles such as "Chris Dorner a Real Ni**a" and "We Are All Chris Dorner," they celebrate the former LAPD officer believed to have killed a woman and her fiance in Irvine this weekend as well as a Riverside police officer yesterday morning.

A multiagency effort spanning multiple states is currently underway to find Dorner, whose burned-out truck was discovered yesterday in the Big Bear area near the Snow Summit and Bear Mountain ski resorts. In a manifesto published online Dorner said he was fired from the LAPD for blowing the whistle on dirty cops and promised to bring "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniforms whether on or off duty."

One of the aforementioned Facebook pages states "Chris will be awarded the realest ni**a alive award, fuck the grammy's." Another page features images of a man with a shopping cart pushing groceries out of a burning building.

As a few of us have pointed out...the manifesto got more than a grain of truth.

I will leave it at that.

http://themadmanchronicles.com/2013/02/08/christopher-dorners-long-history-of-complaints-against-the-lapd-public-documents-released/

But there was no evidence for his assertions and quite a few, including non-police witnesses, who said they saw no kicks. By his own admission he did not add the allegations in his first report and did not until after an unflattering report was written up on him.

There's no way I can see to prove anything on that original case.

I do believe that LAPD corruption and police corruption more generally need to be discussed. However, people on Facebook rooting for a murderer are sick and misguided. Obviously.

FWIW, I've reviewed the appellate brief that was posted online earlier. There were independent witnesses (non-LAPD) who testified that no kicking occurred.

19. The kickee was found non reliable due to mental problems

You know how many times this happens? I was a medic in Tijuana, one thing the Federales hated was municipal cops calling an ambulance. There is a similar dynamic here.

When they lovingly treated a detained reason with mental issues getting to the truth was next to impossible. That witness was already sort of disqualified.

Perhaps that experienced with another "honest cops" color my impressions. This s not limited to the LAPD. But serious that detail of mental status is like critical. People with mental issues are regularly dismissed by police agencies and courts, not just in the US.

Take that into account.

But at this point this goes well beyond Doerner...well beyond.

testifying that no kick occurred. Or perhaps they were not in a position to know that for a fact, and merely said that they did not SEE such.

LAPD are for the most part vicious thugs and/or lazy slackers who want an easy, glamorous felony arrest but don't want to actually SERVE the community on a daily basis.

The only good thing I can say about them is that they don't aggressively go after casual cannabis users, at least in my mostly white neighborhood.

21. There is no way to prove he is right.

 

Testimony of Christopher Adrid
Adrid was working as a bellman at the DoubleTree Hotel on the date of the incident. He saw Gettler on a bench in the lobby, talking to himself, so he asked Gettler if he was a hotel guest. When Gettler said he was not staying at the hotel, Adrid asked him to sit on a bench outside the hotel.
When appellant and Sergeant Evans arrived, Adrid saw them ask Gettler to take his hands out of his pockets and approach them. Gettler stood up and walked toward the officers, but when he tried to run away, appellant tackled him. Adrid testified that he saw Gettler and appellant fall into the bushes, which were about four feet high, although in an earlier interview, he had said he did not see appellant tackle Gettler. Adrid testified that Sergeant Evans was telling Gettler to put his hands behind his back or else she would use the taser. Gettler did not comply, so Sergeant Evans shot him with the taser, and then he complied and was handcuffed. Sergeant Evans stepped into the planter and helped appellant and Gettler get up. Adrid did not see Sergeant Evans crouch in the bushes or kick Gettler. He said that Sergeant Evans had one foot in the planter and one on the sidewalk and never had both feet in the planter. Adrid saw the cut on Gettler’s nose but did not see any other injuries.

Testimony of Ashlye Perez
Ashlye Perez was working at the DoubleTree as a bellhop on July 28, 2007. She was in the lobby of the hotel when she saw appellant and Sergeant Evans arrive at the hotel. The hotel doors were open, so she heard the officers ask Gettler to stand and ask if he was a guest at the hotel. After Perez went outside to try to usher hotel guests inside, she heard Gettler start yelling and saw the officers grab him to stop him from running away. She did not remember exactly what happened, but she saw Sergeant Evans use the taser, and she saw Gettler fall headfirst into the bushes. She noticed that some branches were broken when Gettler hit the bushes. Perez did not see Sergeant Evans go into the bushes or kick Gettler. Perez went back into the hotel, so she did not see the officers handcuff Gettler, but she saw Gettler struggling while the officers tried to get him out of the bushes. She noticed that Gettler had a cut on his face, which she thought was from hitting his face on the bushes.


Testimony of Christopher Gettler
The Board brought Gettler in to question him during the administrative hearing, but his responses generally were incoherent and nonresponsive. A videotaped interview of Gettler, taken on December 8, 2008, was shown at the administrative hearing.


The Board’s findings relied on physical evidence and the testimony of several eyewitnesses who testified that they did not see Sergeant Evans kick Gettler. Sergeant Hernandez and the two DoubleTree employees who witnessed the incident, Adrid and Perez, did not see any kicks. The Board also noted that the photo of Gettler did not show any dirt on his white shirt that would have indicated he was kicked in the clavicle area. The Board also relied on appellant’s failure to report the kicks despite several opportunities to do so, citing Sergeant Jackson’s testimony that appellant did not report the kicks when he was first interviewed about the use of force, as well as appellant’s failure to report the kicks to Lieutenant Grossman. In addition, the Board found that appellant had a motive to make false allegations against Sergeant Evans, based on her testimony that appellant would receive an unsatisfactory rating if he did not improve his performance.

One of the pieces in the file is the complaint against Evans which also is against Dorner for failing to report the kicks in the first report. So that was an official complaint.

He's killed three people, only one of which was in any way associated with the LAPD at the time of his dismissal. He's a damned hypocrite.

32. Except

They still call us n*ggers - no different than in the early 1990s. Or as Paul Mooney said - he never knew racism until he left the deep South and moved out there as a kid . . In the 1950's.

Taking a gun and putting bullets in people is never an answer. But in reading his manifesto - he says what I've heard when in a room full of other black Americans . . . In regards to the President.

And his experiences as a young kid - mirror mine. Especially the bully thing. My brother got that one - M.S. punched him, called him a n*gger on the playground - my brother kicked him to get away from him - brother was the bully. Small town outside of Rochester NY in th at 70's/early 80's.

Black kids in white neighborhoods know they have to take it. No one stands up for them. And god forbid they retaliate.

When I read that manifesto - I read 30 years of taking it - but on a depressed/mentally ill man with Military training who wants Hillary in 2016? How many more are there out there.

The FB worship? That's frightening. That's anger. That's powerless and angry. And a gun to take out one's anger is not the answer.


Terribly sad he mentioned Trayvon Martin - but it was necessary. Non black America underestimates how livid black America is about that and the "boys will be boys" attitude about Zimmerman. He put that in his manifesto. And he starts killing people around what would have been Trayvon's birthday. All of the cover up and protection oftat murder Zimmerman, plus a simmering anger - and tho FB Pages scare the hell out of me.

He killed three people who had little or no contact with him at any point in his life.

I'm of a mind to throw everything he said out the window.

Zimmerman is an idiot and there is no excuse for what he did either. I shudder to see what happens if he's acquitted. I was watching TV after work on the day the cops who beat Rodney King were acquitted and saw what was a small disturbance at the corner of Florence and Normandy turn into something I couldn't fathom.

I have no sympathy for Christopher Dorner. None whatsoever. I'm sorry, and I'm not discounting your reply. It's well reasoned and all of it is true. Dorner needs to answer for what he's done, and what may or may not have happened to him is no excuse for taking the lives of three people he might not have even known.

Hes a racist. He knew precisely what he was doing. And I shudder to think what will happen if he is acquitted too.

Black America - us is pissed. And it's not just about Trayvon.

I want Dorner caught alive. I want him brought to justice. I also want America to wake the fuck up. This isn't a "thug". This isn't a loser like Zimmerman who never did one thing of value in his life.

What flipped this guys switch? Not being argumentative for the sake of being argumentative here - but this tips the hat to the AWB. Dorner pointed it out himself. It also tips the hat to mental illness. Is he off the rails? Nope. But he even said he is depressesed. What flipped the switch where he couldn't take the institutional racism in America anymore?

Zimmerman comes from the people who have all the power (look at the family background). He didn't measure up to anything.

Dorner measured up. That frightens me.

35. I don't care for killers, period.

He's got no support from me.

39. As I have told others, this is not about Doerner any more

But quite a lot about minority communities and LAPD scandals. Some of his manifesto is all but baseless. Houston, we got a problem. Or rather, LAPD might have a serious problem on their paws.

Oh and before you say it, this is sociology, not justifying or defending Doerner.

41. I haven't followed it closely enough

One gunner told me the guy was a gun control activist put into a frenzy by Piers Morgan and people like me who don't like guns. Not quite sure want a gun control activist is doing with a 50 caliber rifle. I think the gunner was projecting.

43. The gunner was projecting.

Doerner actually writes how easy it was for him to get the arsenal, including class III items, such as noise suppressors. He wrote it should not be that easy.

Trust me, it was a part of the manifesto that had me going, "buddy you got all this, including a very illegal in CA 50 Cal BMG, and you telling me we should not....some in the pro gun debate ain't gona like it."

His comments on Piers were in full agreement, but that Americans don't ant a Brit telling them that.

I could find the actual quotes if you want, though Farminator posted them.

It was one of those, ok...this guy s not well, but this is a valid point.

49. That is always possible.



What worries me is that if they don't take him alive...and it looks like a street execution...we could see issues.

Why this has gone well beyond Doerner. And having read it, I get it, why the support Doerner pages have popped up. In my mind it s well beyond time DOJ gets involved.

42. I wonder just how much support that guy has. I visited the faceboook page featured

in the article and it had about 2 hours ago, 534 likes. My daughter has more friends than that on facebook. It is said that there are other pages but I'm not going to go searching for them.

47. Totally does not address the question. But I suspect that any "safe" house he

finds will be at the end of a gun.

61. 896 now.

I saw a Reddit thread where there was a lot of support for his views but not necessarily cop killing (they seemed all conflicted on that count). There are rumors / CT that there are two versions floating around, one in which he mentions gun control, support for Feinstein, etc, but there's another version without that stuff in there.

I think Twitter is where his biggest supporters are.

62. Groovy. So what does that have to do with the imaginary support on DU?


And, out of hundreds of millions of people in this U.S. there are a few 10s of 1000s that support his views about the sewer that is the LAPD and fewer still that support the killing.

It's a national crisis, I tells ya!

65. Just answering the question.

I didn't see any support for the killings here on DU though some are supportive of his manifesto which may or may not be the rantings of a madman. (I read the whole thing, I find his writing quite good, what a waste.)

64. There are two versions

One as names redacted, mostly used by the media, and a second with names not redacted. I got both copies.

58. I do NOT support anything this man has done regarding the killing of

innocent people!!!!!!!!!!!
I would like to say tho "IF" I was him I would not give the LAPD or any other law enforcement agency the credit for killing me. I would go somewhere in the total middle of nowhere and kill myself and hope that they didn't find my body for a long time. The LA mafia would be going crazy and be looking over their shoulders until I was found, which would serve them right, especially after their little hit on those poor women.

Only thing that would be bad is how many innocent victims would be shot by these gun happy, fearful cops until the body was found.

Just a crazy thought...............

60. He is engaged in a campaign of asymmetrical warfare.

That thought is not that crazy.

It had not occurred to me, but will have to keep an eye on this possibility.
