(Los Angeles, CA) The manhunt continues for the person police say shot and killed one police officer, wounded two others and shot and killed two civilians.
Christopher Dorner, a former Navy lieutenant and fired Los Angeles officer, promised to bring “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” to police officers and their families, calling it the “last resort” to clear his name and get back at a department that he claims mistreated him.
That came from a ‘manifesto’ police say Dorner left behind.
Dorner said he had been unfairly fired by the LAPD after reporting another officer for police brutality. He decried what he called a continuing culture of racism and violence within the department, and called attacks on police and their families, “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.”
Dorner also said he supported gun control, praised numerous Democratic politicians as well as praising MSNBC and its various hosts.
Dorner heavily criticized NRA President Wayne LaPierre and those who have opposed policies of President Obama.

Police are now focusing on the Big Bear mountain resort town west of Los Angeles where searchers Thursday found Dorner’s burned-out pickup truck.
An approaching storm threatened to hinder the already difficult search.
