Ex-cop manhunt: Read the manifesto

Manhunt manifesto

Authorities continued to comb Big Bear on Thursday as an intensive manhunt for an ex-Los Angeles police officer suspected in a series of shootings stretched into late afternoon.

Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, is suspected of shooting three police officers, one of whom died, in Riverside County early Thursday. Police say he also shot and killed the daughter of a former LAPD captain and her fiance in Orange County earlier this week.

DOCUMENT: Read the manifesto

The Los Angeles Po­lice De­part­ment is ex­amin­ing a mani­festo it said was pub­lished on what the agency be­lieves is Dorner's Face­book page.

The rambling document threatened "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against police. Authorities have dispatched protective details to at least 40 officers and others named.

The postings threaten violence against other police officers.

“The violence of action will be high.... I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty,” one passage said.

The manifesto also seemed to allude to the Irvine slaying on Sunday.

“I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days,” one passage said.

“Unfortunately,” it went on, “this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name.”
