Rogue Dismissed Police Officer Declares "War" on LAPD
This story is gripping America at the moment...
Christopher Jordan Dorner Manhunt: "WE ARE AT WAR"
The word coming out of the Los Angeles Police Department this morning is
meant to apply to that storied agency but it can be piggybacked onto
all of Southern California.
"WE ARE AT WAR."
Our foe is
only one man: camo-wearing, heavily armed, heavily trained, highly
agitated, county-hopping, ex-cop, triple-murder suspect Christopher Jordan Dorner. The manhunt for the man now suspected of carrying out a revenge
killing of two in Irvine Sunday night and the overnight shooting of
three police officers, including one who died, in Riverside County, has
not only clogged Southern California airwaves but impacted morning
commutes as police close streets and portions of I-15.
police agencies in four counties on high alert, and the FBI and U.S.
Marshals enlisted to help in the search, we're also dealing with the fog
of war, as there were conflicting reports this morning whether two
separate officer-involved shootings that were blocks apart in the South
Bay this morning are connected to the Dorner case.
news reports at this hour show officers in Riverside County with guns
drawn because Dorner released a manifesto where he wrote of attacking
crime scenes (he initiated) and command posts, and of wiping out
officers, administrators and their families.
The LAPD chief has
scheduled a press conference within minutes to update the media. Until
then, here is the timeline of events as we know them:
- The engaged couple, Monica Quan, 28, and Keith Lawrence, 27, were found gunned down in his Kia parked in an Irvine condominium complex parking structure.
