Christopher Dorner Falsely Claims Rolando Solano, LAPD Captain, Beat Rodney King

Christopher Dorner, the fugitive ex-Los Angeles cop who has declared "war" on the LAPD, made an inaccurate claim in his nine-page manifesto.

Dorner, 33, wrote that "an officer seen on the Rodney King videotape striking Mr. King multiple times with a baton on 3/3/91 is now a Captain on the police department."

"Captain Rolando Solano is now the commanding officer of a LAPD police station (West LA division)," Dorner wrote. "Do you trust him to enforce department policy and investigate use of force investigations on arrestees by his officers?"

Solano was on the scene of King's beating but did not participate in it. He was one of 17 LAPD officers on the scene who neither participated in the attack nor were charged with any crimes. Solano was promoted to and is currently captain of the West LA police division.

1. so the claim is that he just stood around and watched?

OK. Whatever. The LAPD is a disaster. Disclaimer: Dorner is a murderer who should be brought to justice.

2. If murderers seek -- and are accorded -- legitimacy, expect more of them.

3. I suspect its not the only inaccuracy.

Dorner may or may not be right about his training supervisor. If it was true, then certainly there are better ways to get the information out than by going on a murderous rampage. I do think the guy has flipped his lid...PTSD or paranoid shizophrenia ? I think in a twisted way he is looking for moral justification for his acts of revenge on people who he perceives "wronged" him. But, although he appears to have mental issues, the guy doesn't seem dumb.

4. No he isn't dumb, but maybe paranoid and delusional.

 

Thinking you can clear your name by killing the daughter of your lawyer is not rational.
