Personally, I think there is a high probability Dorner froze to death up in the Big Bear wilderness. This video is pretty interesting though. The fact that Ruppert as a former LAPD officer, sides with a fugitive and suspected murderer that declared he would kill cops on the internet, is very telling of the way things are done in that department. America is already aware of the machinations of the Rodney King beating that led to the LA riots. That whole fiasco was centered around the LAPD. Furthmore, with the recent decision of the department to reopen Dorner's original claim of excessive force, things are not looking good for the boys in blue down in LA. All that is needed is for one shred of truth from his manifesto to match the evidence in the case and its game over. The guy has proven his point, and the department ends up looking even worse than when they shot the two newspaper delivery women that were mistaken for Dorner. Never mind that these were women and the suspect is a man or the fact that Dorner's truck was different color or that he drove a NISSAN Titan and they drove a TOYOTA Tacoma. The licence plates weren't even similar. This whole event is starting to feel like the thread that unravels the sweater when its pulled. The worse part is if Dorner was telling the truth about officer Teresa Evans kicking Christopher Gettler in the face. Because according to his manifesto, she could stop him killing anyone else simply by admitting to it in a public forum like a press conference. Man, what a cluster*&#%!
The Trouble With Abridging Things, Or The Christopher Dorner Manifesto You Won't Hear About in the News
First off, let me be very clear, I do not condone murder or violence. Nor do I condone what Mr. Dorner has done and is planning on doing. In fact, I think its downright deplorable and horrific by any account.
What I take issue with is the media not showing the whole manifesto. I am really glad the internet exists, it's the universal equalizer. I have been following this story since it broke. I figured this was a crooked cop of some sort or just another person with a severe history of mental illness. I was surprised to learn otherwise from what I have read, which is the whole unabridged and uncensored manifesto.
This guy is a broken individual. Someone with a very idealistic sense of morality and a sense of right and wrong, that unfortunately, (it seems) he has been pushed to his breaking point. This is a good guy with a gun that has turned bad. His records and history show a man with integrity and discipline. At one point this gentleman and a friend returned some money they found on the side of the road in a bank bag. $8000 dollars to be exact.
His manifesto offers an incredible look into his psyche and why he has decided to take the unfortunate actions he has taken. He will die and he knows it. There's no way that this guy will see the inside of a courtroom, even if he gives himself up. The cops will shoot him after what he's done.
Sure he's managed to vanish and elude the police, for now. But when they find him, and they will, he won't live to be put in cuffs even if he gives up. If the LAPD turned two harmless newspaper delivery women into shreds when they MISTOOK the poor women for Dorner, imagine what they'll do to him when they have him confirmed in their sights.
