The police is out in full force in southern California. Law enforcement is on a massive manhunt for one of their own. It should be clear to the public by now that they are not safe. Police have shot up a truck thinking it belonged to Christopher Dorner injuring two women. http://fox4kc.com/2013/02/08/la-police-shoot-at-wrong-suspect-vehicle-injure-two-women/ Two cops were shot in Riverside, California and police there have reason to believe it was Dorner.
It almost seems inconceivable that this one rouge police officer would be able to use up so many resources. How far will a corrupt police department go to protect their own hides?
In all reality Christopher Dorner doesn’t have to clear his name. I think that people are finding out first hand the wrath of the LAPD and other police who feel threatened by the rouge police officer.
“The Los Angeles Police Department will reopen its investigation into the 2007 episode that led to the firing of Christopher J. Dorner, the former police officer who is wanted in three killings, department officials said Saturday night.” The department may have reopened the case but now his name will be tarnished and he will be known as a murderer.

How does this pertain to other communities in the United States? We have a rare opportunity to use this situation to our advantage to stop anything else like this from happening. We could start with opening and re-opening cases that should be investigated. How about listening to people before they feel forced to go to these kinds of extremes to “clear their name”? To protect the mentally ill from police brutality.
Dorner tried doing things the right way. He even took his case to court in attempt to clear his name and lost. I don’t condone what Mr. Dorner is doing but I understand why he’s doing it. Sadly. In the manifesto he said that this could stop if they did what he asked them to do. Finding this guy will be like looking for a needle in a haystack. If he isn’t somewhere dead it sounds like there are plenty of people who would hide him. The cops are making themselves look bad I mean shooting up two ladies, harassing a lady in the desert by helicopter, searching every single car, going house to house. The resources they’re using are insane. I hope that this “re-opening” of this case stops the madness. Below is the case to be re-opened. Let’s hope that these deaths aren’t in vain and real changes will occur across the nation.
