Ex-Cop Tried to Play By the Book, Live Right Then Lost His Mind or Really?

Christopher Jordan Dorner, the ex-cop accused of murdering the daughter of the retired LAPD Captain and her fiance, is one black man who any person, who has had to deal with unethical practices, racism, lies, and just simple craziness on the job, can relate.

I have included excerpts from his manifesto relevant to the African American subject matter presented on this blog in the past to not only show that this man isn't as crazy as the media and critics you may know think.

Did he really commit those acts of violence or was he forced via mind control?  Did he really write the manifesto that the media talks about and if he did, did someone tweak it?  Well unless someone saw him do anything, then we can't believe too much when it comes to mainstream media that is known for embellishing stories and hiring actors and actresses.

It doesn't matter whether you believe Dorner is guilty, was set up, or someone wrote his manifesto, for purposes of this blog entry, I am taking the liberty to shine some light on his disturbing yet enlightening manifesto.  I must say that I do question the validity of it and I also find that there will be those groups that will utilize it in such a way to get non-blacks to fear the big black guys around our world, to racial profile, and to add more black men to jail cells.  Something like this work attributed to Dorner appears to have evil intent, but we can turn it around and use it for good.


You know the contents of his manifesto some of you can relate if you have ever had to deal with the police specifically the LAPD.  According to Dorner,  "Unfortunately, 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. The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions."  So from this, you know that back when we celebrated with Rodney King about his justice, the truth of the matter,--nothing had changed! 

We will get to LAPD lies and cover-ups that this man reveals in his manifesto later in this blog entry.  But let's start with a few statements Dorner made that I personally heard as a child. In between his rants, threats, shout-outs and boasts about what he knows and has in his possession, he took me back and he probably made some of you think about the past too when you read his manifesto which can be found on the Los Angeles Times website.

1.  "The question is, what would you do to clear your name?"  Dorner pens.

Now when I read this, I remember hearing relatives say things like, "All you have is your name...If I don't have my name, I got nothing...Protect your name."  He adds later in the report, "I want my name back, period." 

As we all know, innocent brothas in jail, having fits, just wanting someone to come and clear their name--it happens and some have lost their minds too as a result.  Years of fighting a system they can't win.  Many are truly innocent, yet law enforcement, lawyers, a judge, fellow in-mates, even some relatives don't believe anything they say.  If you have ever been falsely accused of something, you know how you felt.  Dorner warns readers, "Never allow a LAPPL union attorney to be a retired LAPD Captain,(-----). He doesn’t work for you, your interest, or your name." Again Dorner refers to his name elsewhere in the Manifesto, "Do not dwell on my recent actions the last few days. This was a necessary evil that had to be executed in order for me to obtain my NAME back."

 2.  "Sometimes humans feel a need to prove they are the dominant race of a species and they inadvertently take kindness for weakness from another individual. You chose wrong." 

I think of how when my relatives and friends would get angry after all their giving to certain people and groups they would say, "So you taking my kindness for weakness?"  When they had enough with someone being disrespectful, "You chose wrong."

There were times when you did right by the wrong people over and over again.  You got angry and wanted to get even.  Apparently, on numerous occassions Dorner had filed a complaint with the department about a variety of issues, but the one that stood out the most for him was about his fellow police officer kicking a mentally-handicap person in the face and chest leaving a visible injury.  The whole thing was caught on videotape.  His bringing this to the attention of his superiors is what started the attack on his name.  Dorner was angered by the woman lying on him, having the position she had because there was a conflict of interest because of her connection in the department, retaliation efforts to ruin his name, etc.  Because he snitched on fellow employees--didn't follow "The Blue Line" (more on that later), he believed that is what caused problems for him.

3.  "People who live in glass houses should not throw stones...   How ironic that you (LAPD Headquarters) utilize a fixed glass structure as your command HQ..."

I couldn't help but think of those who I knew upset, because someone who had no business talking negatively about them, with skeletons in their closets, had something to say.    "You live in a glass house, don't throw any stones!"  One relative said to another.

The three statements used above made me think of past times, but it didn't thoroughly convince me that the manifesto was completely written by him.

So let's talk about that "Blue Line" that Dorner mentioned previously.

Blue Line

This term that Dorner uses refers to a club, so to speak, where those in the group take an oath and swear not to reveal secrets, cover for their brothers, etc.  Like a good-old-boys club within the organization.  "Unfortunately after reporting it (the kicking incident) to supervisors and investigated by PSB (internal affairs investigator Det. -----), nothing was done. I had broken their supposed “Blue Line”.  Unfortunately, It’s not JUST US, it’s JUSTICE!!!"

Some of you may have cliches at your workplace where only certain people interact with one another and keep others out who don't fit in while bad-mouthing people because of ethnicity, gender, preference, or ethics.  Dorner writes, "Terminating officers because they expose a culture of lying, racism (from the academy), and excessive use of force will immediately change. PSB can not police their own and that has been proven.

The blue line will forever be severed and a cultural change will be implanted. You have awoken a sleeping giant.  I am here to change and make policy. The culture of LAPD versus the community and honest/good officers needs to and will change. I am here to correct and calibrate your morale compasses to true north." Dorner mentions another blue line reference after an altercation over the word "n*gger" ensued conflict used by racists cops on the force.  Pushing and shoving took place.  Dorner wrote, "I heard Officer ----- call an individual a nigger again. Now that I had confirmed it, I told ----- not to use that word again.I explained that it was a well-known offensive word that should not be used by anyone. He replied, “I’ll say it when I want”. Officer -----, a friend of his, also stated that he would say nigger when he wanted. At that point I jumped over my front passenger seat and two other officers where I placed my hands around -----’ neck and squeezed. I stated to -----, “Don’t fucking say that”. At that point there was pushing and shoving and we were separated by several other officers. What I should have done, was put a Winchester Ranger SXT 9mm 147 grain bullet in his skull and Officer -----’s skull. The Situation would have been resolved effective, immediately. The sad thing about this incident was that when Detective ----- from internal affairs investigated this incident only (1) officer (unknown) in the van other than myself had statements consistent with what actually happened. The other six officers all stated they heard nothing and saw nothing.  The incident caused him and others to be disciplined, "Don’t retaliate against honest officers for breaking your so-called blue line.  I hope your son -----, who I knew, is a better officer than you, Detective -----. The saddest part of this ordeal was that Officer ----- and ----- were only given 22 day suspensions and are still LAPD officers to this day," Dorner pens. 

Racists Police Officers

Besides hearing officers use derogatory terms used to talk about blacks including the President and his wife, Dorner heard other ethnicties being ridiculed.  He complained and eventually was labeled a bully.  He writes, "During the BOR, the department attempted to label me unsuccessfully as a bully. They stated that I had bullied a recruit, -----, in the academy when in reality and unfounded disposition from the official 1.28 formal complaint investigation found that I was the one who stood up for ----- when other recruits sang Nazi Hitler youth songs about burning Jewish ghettos in WWII Germany where his father was a survivor of a concentration camp."

Lengthy Use of Force

The officer who Dorner had the biggest grievance with had "a lengthy use of force record and has been flagged several times by risk management...She found it very funny and entertaining to draw blood from suspects and arrestees," according to the former police officer. So if this was the case, why wasn't something done early on before it got so bad that a mental man had to take a kick to the face and chest?  How many others in the LAPD and other police departments around the world have people abusing power and fellow officers just stand by and let things happen?  What type of climate is one working in that they don't feel comfortable enough to report someone who may be troubled?  Elsewhere in the Manifesto, Dorner describes the woman as often visibly angry.  No one in management could see that the woman was stressed, unhappy?

Paper Trails and Hearings

Dorner refers to hearings, reports and other things that would be easy for an investigative journalist to obtain--that's if they aren't destroyed or re-written.  Noting your findings and including dates and times is always a helpful move in the event you are called to court or have a grievance with someone at your workplace.  I also maintain a workplace blog you might want to check out that talks about his manifesto as it relates to those in leadership managing employees with concerns, see here.  But beware, people might try to discredit you or do what was done to the ex-cop when you tell on them, so have a back-up plan.  Dorner pens, "The department attempted to paint me as an officer who could not write reports."

Pride Comes Before a Fall

It is obvious from reading this man's manifesto that the former officer was not a humble gentleman and he wasn't into faith, religion, and other spiritual things.  Dorner was trained to kill and one following this man in the news must remember that!  He also didn't connect himself with what society would consider the typical mainstream black professional as the following:  "I’m not an aspiring rapper, I’m not a gang member, I’m not a dope dealer, I don’t have multiple babies momma’s. I am an American by choice, I am a son, I am a brother, I am a military service member, I am a man who has lost complete faith in the system, when the system betrayed, slandered, and libeled me. I lived a good life and though not a religious man I always stuck to my own personal code of ethics, ethos and always stuck to my shoreline and true North. I didn’t need the US Navy to instill Honor, Courage, and Commitment in me but I thank them for re-enforcing it. It’s in my DNA."

Department Ethics, Practices Revealed

Some thought-provoking things Dorner mentions about his fellow officers are as follows which I found interesting:

1.  Officers worry about things like: "...phone call from internal affairs or from the Captains office wondering if that is the day PSB comes after you for the suspects you struck when they were cuffed months/years ago or that $500 you pocketed from the narcotics dealer, or when the other guys on your watch beat a transient nearly to death and you never reported the UOF to the supervisor."

2.  "From 2/05 to 1/09 I saw some of the most vile things humans can inflict on others as a police officer in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it wasn’t in the streets of LA. It was in the confounds of LAPD police stations and shops (cruisers)."

3.  "Are you aware that an officer (a rookie/probationer at the time) seen on the Rodney King videotape striking Mr. King multiple times with a baton on 3/3/91 is still employed by the LAPD and is now a Captain on the police department? Captain ----- is now the commanding officer of a LAPD police station (West LA division). As a commanding officer, he is now responsible for over 200 officers. Do you trust him to enforce department policy and investigate use of force investigations on arrestees by his officers? Are you aware ----- has since promoted to Sergeant after kicking Mr. ----- in the face. Oh, you Violated a citizens civil rights? We will promote you. Same as LAPD did with the officers from Metro involved in the May Day melee at MacArthur Park. They promoted them to Sergeant (a supervisor role)."

4.  "Those Caucasian officers who join South Bureau divisions (77th,SW,SE, an Harbor) with the sole intent to victimize minorities who are uneducated, and unaware of criminal law, civil law, and civil rights. You prefer the South bureau because a use of force/deadly force is likely and the individual you use UOF on will likely not report it. You are a high value target."

5. "Those Black officers in supervisory ranks and pay grades who stay in south bureau (even though you live in the valley or OC) for the sole intent of getting retribution toward subordinate caucasians officers for the pain and hostile work environment their elders inflicted on you as probationers (P-1's) and novice P-2’s. You are a high value target. You perpetuated the cycle of racism in the department as well. You breed a new generation of bigoted caucasian officer when you belittle them and treat them unfairly."

6.  "Those Hispanic officers who victimize their own ethnicity because they are new immigrants to this country and are unaware of their civil rights. You call them wetbacks to their face and demean them in front of fellow officers of different ethnicities so that you will receive some sort of acceptance from your colleagues."

7.  "Those lesbian officers in supervising positions who go to work, day in day out, with the sole intent of attempting to prove your misandrist authority (not feminism) to degrade male officers.You are a high value target."

8.  "Those Asian officers who stand by and observe everything I previously mentioned other officers participate in on a daily basis but you say nothing, stand for nothing and protect nothing. Why? Because of your usual saying, ” I……don’t like conflict”. You are a high value target as well."

9.  "Those of you who “go along to get along” have no backbone and destroy the foundation of courage. You are the enablers of those who are guilty of misconduct. You are just as guilty as those who break the code of ethics and oath you swore."

10.  "Citizens/non-combatants, do not render medical aid to downed officers/enemy combatants. They would not do the same for you. They will let you bleed out just so they can brag to other officers that they had a 187 caper the other day and can’t wait to accrue the overtime in future court subpoenas. As they always say, “that’s the paramedics job…not mine”. Let the balance of loss of life take place. Sometimes a reset needs to occur."

11.  "It is endless the amount of times per week officers arrest an individual, label him a suspect-arrestee-defendant and then before arraignment or trial realize that he is innocent based on evidence. You know what they say when they realize an innocent man just had his life turned upside down?. “I guess he should have stayed at home that day he was discovered walking down the street and matching the suspects description. Oh well, he appeared to be a dirtbag anyways”."

12.  "When your family members die, they just see you as extra overtime at a crime scene and at a perimeter. Why would you value their lives when they clearly don’t value yours or your family members lives? I’ve heard many officers who state they see dead victims as ATV’s, Waverunners, RV’s and new clothes for their kids."

13.  "Why would you shed a tear for them when they in return crack a smile for your loss because of the impending extra money they will receive in their next paycheck for sitting at your loved ones crime scene of 6 hours because of the overtime they will accrue. They take photos of your loved ones recently deceased bodies with their cellphones and play a game of who has the most graphic dead body of the night with officers from other divisions. This isn’t just the 20 something year old officers, this is the 50 year old officers with significant time on the job as well who participate."

14.  "How do you know when a police officer is lying??? When he begins his sentence with, 'based on my experience and training'."

Then near the very end of Dorner's manifesto, after all the shout-outs and remarks about different people he admires and hates, he writes, "Blacks must strive for more in life than bling, hoes, and cars. The current culture is an epidemic that leaves them with no discernible future. They're suffocating and don't even know it. MLK Jr. Would be mortified at what he worked so hard for in our acceptance as equal beings and how unfortunately we stopped progressing and began digressing. Chicago's youth violence is a prime example of how our black communities values have declined. We can not address this nation's intolerant issues until we address our own communities morality issues first. Accountability.We need to hold ou"

It ends just like that.  He doesn't complete the last sentence. Now I took the time to extract the significance of this manifesto, because it just reinforces what many researchers and victims of groups have tried to convey, but those who are programmed with all sorts of oaths, secrets and the like refuse to see.  Men who stand for something don't go down easily.  If this man is nothing more than a mere puppet, then the script back-fired on some elitists, because people will remember what was revealed in the manifesto and hopefully act peacefully.  We have to be mindful that there are those who are trying to start a civil war so that they have an excuse to establish new laws on citizens.  So if one does protest any police department nationwide, don't be tempted to sin, so to speak.  For some of you activists, you might want to review some old MLK strategies and check out some of the things Internet activists do.  But whatever you do, don't buy into anything that is going to make you act like a fool and start shooting up people. Thanks for stopping by.  Feel free to subscribe to this blog. Nicholl
