Christopher Dorner: An ex-cop bent on exacting revenge

(Continued)

At Dorner’s discipline hearing, the father of the man the partners arrested testified that his son had told him he had been kicked by an officer. Nonetheless the discipline board found that Dorner had lied about the incident and fired him.

Dorner spent the next couple of years unsuccessfully appealing his termination. Then, this week, police say, Dorner made good on his threat to seek revenge when he fatally shot the daughter of an ex-LAPD captain who represented him at his discipline hearing. He also allegedly shot her fiance. Dorner went on to fatally shoot one officer and injure two others, police say.

“When the truth comes out,” the manifesto states, “the killing stops.”
