2016-2017 Rough Second Draft Notes show the possibility that Chris Dorner was an American Hero more than those that hunted him

2002 NEWS

Christopher Dorner hailed a hero in Enid, Oklahoma,

after he handed in a bag of cash to police.

I have attempted all legal Court efforts including appeals at the Superior Court and the Appellate Courts. This is my last resort. -Christopher Dorner

The former U.S. navy reservist is quoted as saying:

'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.

'Self Preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death as I died long ago on 1/2/09.'

2002 Christopher Dorner hailed a hero in Enid, Oklahoma, after he handed in a bag of cash to police

Dorner was stated as having said at the time, the good deed was 'an integrity thing'.

Just to use that word, "integrity", in a sentence, is a good thing in the opinion of this writer.

Dorner, an ex-LA cop, has sparked manhunt in three states and Mexico, the controlled media touted. Yet the news that police have mistakenly shot two innocent people who were in cars matching the description of Dorner's fades from the memory of those that heard the "news".

The mind only hold so much data and then it is full. In the case of PROGRAMMING, it's easy to mislead and send the minds into overload. Repetition and flashy pictures and soon all that crappy media input ensures that the minds that bother to succumb to focus on the programming, are awash in crap with no room for reason.

These are the preliminary thoughts of the writer,

The ex-Los Angeles police officer who has allegedly gunned down three people and remains on the lam once handed in nearly $8,000 of church money that he found in the middle of the road.

Then-Navy ensign, Christopher Dorner, was hailed a hero in Enid, Oklahoma, after he and a military colleague found the bag of cash back in November 2002 and promptly handed it to police. The pair told a local newspaper at the time that the good deed was 'an integrity thing.' The bag of money turned out to be donations collected by the nearby Korean Church of Grace during a Sunday service. It had slipped off the roof of church member Byung-Moon Jang's car as he was driving it to the bank.

Now, 11 years later, Jang said he was shocked and 'truly troubled' to hear news of a national manhunt for Dorner, who he recalled as selfless and honest. 'I feel sad to hear that. We thought he was so honest and a young American man with a bright future,' Jang told 'To hear this news is truly troubling.'

Police gave NO WARNING as they mistakenly shot woman, 71,...
The Enid News and Eagle reported at the time that Dorner and his pal Lt. Andrew Baugher, a Marine student, were taught honesty as children and that integrity was stressed in their military training. 'The military stresses integrity,' Dorner told the newspaper in 2002. 'There was a couple of thousand dollars, and if people are willing to give that to a church, it must be pretty important to them.' He added: 'I didn't work for it, so it's not mine. And it was for the church. It's not so much the integrity, but it was someone else's money. I would hope someone would do that for me.' Byung-Moon Jang, pictured, from Korean Church of Grace in Enid, said Dorner was an honest young man. Jang told that he was so relieved to get the money back and said the honorable act made him 'so thankful that in this American society, there were such honest people.'

The character profile seems at odds with the Christopher Dorner who is wanted in connection to three homicides and has been described as 'armed and extremely dangerous' by police.

Authorities have failed to locate Dorner after an extensive search through the Big Bear ski resort in Southern California. The resort was put on lockdown for much of Friday as thousands of officers searched for the decorated former Navy reservist who has sparked a manhunt in three states and Mexico. Officials, who have released a series of images of Dorner captured on surveillance video at an Orange County hotel on January 28, say they don't believe he is still in the area and they have reopened the local resort.

Christopher Dorner is seen on a surveillance video at an Orange County hotel on January 28, 2013 in this new surveillance footage released by the Irvine Police Department on Friday

On Friday, officers were spotted removing several bags of property from the home belonging to the suspect's mother, Nancy Dorner, in Orange County.

His burned out truck was found on Thursday afternoon in the National Forest outside Big Bear, about 100 miles from Los Angeles.

Police bloodhounds and heavily-armed SWAT officers in combat fatigues tracked a set of footprints in the snow and 125 cops infringed upon every home in the community of about 400.

As they released recent surveillance footage of the suspect, Irvine police continued to ask for tips from the public to locate the man.

On Friday morning, police received a tip from an off-duty officer at a San Diego gym who thought they spotted someone in the locker room who resembled Dorner. A team of officers arrived and determined the man was not the suspect in question leaving another individual inconvenienced, threatened, searched.

'He could be anywhere at this point,' San Bernadino County Sheriff John McMahon said.

Media dramatizes the urgency with reports that: "Dorner is presumed to be armed with multiple weapons, including an assault rifle, although his manifesto suggests he may be more heavily armed - possibly even with rocket launchers." Of course, it proved to be false.

Dorner, who received medals for his service during the Iraq war, also earned accolades for his skills. He earned a ribbon and medal, CBS reported. He was also deployed to Bahrain and Kuwait in 2006 and 2007 as part of the Naval reserve.

The search has spread throughout the entire state of California, Arizona, Nevada, where Dorner owns a home outside of Las Vegas and Mexico.

A caller told police Dorner was located at a home in San Diego early Friday but after a thorough search, officials believe it was a hoax, NBC San Diego said. Investigators plan to pursue criminal charges against the person who made the call.

Dorner, fleeing for his life, tried to steal a man's boat in San Diego early Thursday in hopes of sailing to a safer country, officials said. His desperate bid failed after the boat's rope got caught on the propeller.

Another purported sighting of Dorner in Barstow, California, about 60 miles north of Big Bear, also turned out to be bogus.

Dorner also included a DVD and notes in which he outlined his belief that he was fired by a 'corrupt' police department after he reported a superior for police brutality.

Cooper addressed his role in the investigation on his talk show on Friday.

'Dorner had written a lengthy manifesto on his Facebook page naming a number of reporters and he mentioned me. He said I should stop interrupting guests,' Cooper said.

In Dorner's bizarre, rambling 6,000 word manifesto that detailed his disciplinary hearing and firing. In it, he promises to seek revenge against the people he believes were responsible for removing him from the department.

'I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own... so I am terminating yours,' he wrote.

'Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That's what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name. The attacks will stop when the department states the truth about my innocence. '

Dorner listed 40 names he planned to target in his manifesto and has already made good on his threat to attack the families of officers who he claims wronged him, authorities say.

On Sunday, he allegedly murdered the daughter and future son-in-law of former LAPD Captain Randy Quan, who defended him at the disciplinary hearing where he was expelled from the police force.

Monica Quan, an assistant basketball coach at California State University-Fullerton, and her fiance Keith Lawrence, a security officer at the University of Southern California, were found shot to death in their car outside their condo in Irvine.

Early on Thursday, Dorner was spotted in the area of one of the targets on his hit-list and two Los Angeles police officers engaged him a shootout.

He wounded one officer and so badly shot up their squad car that they could no longer pursue him.

A short time later, he ambushed two Riverside police officers, opening fire on their patrol car as they waited at a traffic light.

A 34-year-old police trainer with 11-years on the force was killed. A 27-year-old trainee was gravely wounded and remains in intensive care after undergoing surgery. Their names are not being released to protect their families, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reports.

They continued the manhunt into the night despite blizzard conditions.

Officers across Southern California remain on high alert. Dorner is a former U.S. Navy reserve lieutenant and an expert marksman who was a member of an undersea warfare unit. He deployed to Iraq and is highly trained, the Los Angeles Times reports.

When asked whether Dorner knew how to carry out his threats against police, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck responded ominously: 'Of course he knows what he's doing. We trained him.'

On Thursday night, federal agents raided Dorner's home in Las Vegas, Nevada. They did not disclose what they found or what they were looking for.

A portrait of Dorner that is emerging paints him as a man who constantly believed he was being persecuted for standing up for what was right.

He played football at Southern Utah University and had an 'unremarkable' career as a running back. He graduated in 2001 with a degree in political science.

In Utah, he was acutely aware of the fact that he was one of the only black students in his classes - and also one of the only non-Mormons.

Dorner railed against Mormonism in his manifesto, saying he hoped the faith would 'burn slowly in a fire.'

Dorner posted his rambling 18-page manifesto online. IN it he details his extensive list of targets and also mentions numerous celebrities, including talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, NFL player Tim Tebow and former President George H.W. Bush.

Bizarrely, Dorner advocates for strict gun control, even though he is believed to be armed with several firearms, including an assault rifle.

He promises to wage 'unconventional and asymmetrical warfare' against police as revenge for his 'unjust' treatment by the 'corrupt' department.

A police official said it was the largest manhunt in department history that anyone could recall.

Revenge: Dorner, also a former Naval reservist, is suspected of shooting three police officers, one fatally early Thursday after the cops tried to apprehend him


Dorner's manifesto also included bizarre messages to some of his favorite athletes, actors, politicians and comedians.

TIM TEBOW: You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be “Tebowing” when you reach your next team.

ELLEN DEGENERES: Continue your excellent contribution to entertaining America and bringing the human factor to entertainment. You changed the perception of your gay community and how we as Americans view the LGBT community.

CHARLIE SHEEN: Charlie Sheen, you’re effin awesome.

JEFFREY TOOBIN and DAVID GERGEN: you are political geniuses and modern scholars

Larry David, Kevin Hart, the late Patrice Oneal, Lisa Lampanelli, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Louis CK, Dave Chapelle, Jon Stewart, Wanda Sykes, Dennis Miller, and Jeff Ross are pure geniuses.

PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH: They never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country.

Authorities have placed security details at 40 potential targets listed in Dorner's manifesto.

They have law enforcement in San Diego, where Dorner allegedly tied up an elderly man and unsuccessfully tried to steal his boat on Wednesday night.

Naval Base Point Loma was locked down Thursday after a Navy person reported someone matching Dorner's description in the area but there was no confirmation of him being at the base.

Dozens of local police, sheriff's deputies and federal agents were at the base.

Nevada authorities also looked for Dorner because he owns a house nine miles from the Las Vegas Strip, according to authorities and court records.

Police in California mistakenly shot a woman and her 71-year-old mother who were delivering newspapers in a vehicle the description of Dorner's Nissan truck.

The shooting occurred around 5:20 a.m. when Los Angeles detectives, guarding the home of a police official in Torrance mentioned in Dorner's manifesto, opened fire at the slow-moving vehicle.

The mother is recovering in a hospital while her daughter has been treated and released, authorities said.

About 25 minutes later in a separate incident, Torrance police shot at another vehicle but no one was injured, authorities said.

Autopsies showed that Quan and Lawrence were killed by multiple gunshot wounds in the parking structure at their condominium in Irvine, Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said earlier Wednesday.

Quan, 28, was an assistant women's basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton.

Lawrence, 27, wanted to pursue a career in law-enforcement and was a public safety officer at the University of Southern California.

They met while students in Concordia College.

'My son, great man, terrific son, awesome individual. We can only try to live as honorably as were. Would never lie to me. Faced everything head on and always had a smile. I will always love you,' his father, Kevin Lawrence, posted on a Facebook tribute page.

Lawrence's aunt, Mechell'e M. Lawrence, also posted to the online memorial.

'I can not sleep knowing someone has taken my nephew away from me and my family. Keith is innocent, intelligent, funny, quite and just there when ever you need him. I guess God needed you more.

'I HATE that your departure from life had to end this way, but I keep thinking of your last minutes here with Monica, and how evil and disgusting this person is......I hope they catch him and he gets what he deserved, and I'm not talking about his day on the police force.

'My nieces and nephews are my life, and Keith was my baby til I had my own, but he remained in a special place in my heart,' the heartbroken relative wrote.

Life cut short: Quan, 28, was an assistant basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton college

Blame: Dorner held his former boss Randal Quan responsible for his getting fired from the LAPD

The killings brought mourning and disbelief at three college campuses, Fullerton, USC, and Concordia University, where the two met when they were both students and basketball players.

Dorner was with the department from 2005 until 2008, when he was fired for making false statements.

Quan's father, a former LAPD captain who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Dorner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Dorner at the time of his dismissal, LAPD Captain William Hayes told The Associated Press last night.

Randal Quan retired in 2002. He later served as chief of police at Cal Poly Pomona before he started practicing law.

Dorner said that in the course of an arrest, Evans kicked suspect Christopher Gettler, a schizophrenic with severe dementia.

Richard Gettler, the schizophrenic man's father, gave testimony that supported Dorner's claim.

After his son was returned on July 28, 2007, Richard Gettler asked 'if he had been in a fight because his face was puffy' and his son responded that he was kicked twice in the chest by a police officer.

But following an investigation, Dorner was fired for making false statements.

In his manifesto, Dorner said the department fired him for breaking the supposed 'blue line' in which cops do not report against their fellow cops.


'I know I will be vilified by the LAPD and the media. 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 question is, what would you do to clear your name?

'A name is more than just a noun, verb, or adjective. It’s your life, your legacy, your journey, sacrifices, and everything you’ve worked hard for every day of your life as and adolescent, young adult and adult. Don’t let anybody tarnish it when you know you’ve live up to your own set of ethics and personal ethos.
'Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That’s what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name.'

Once, while riding with other LAPD officers, two of them allegedly used the N-word, so he attacked them. 'I placed my hands around XXXXs’ neck and squeezed. I stated to XXXX, 'Don’t f-----g 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 XXXX’s skull. The Situation would have been resolved effective, immediately.'

'My first recollection of racism was in the first grade at Norwalk Christian elementary school in Norwalk, CA. A fellow student, XXXX if I can recall, called me a n----r on the playground. My response was swift and non-lethal. I struck him fast and hard with a punch an kick. He cried and reported it to a teacher. The teacher reported it to the principal.

'The principal swatted XXXX for using a derogatory word toward me. He then for some unknown reason swatted me for striking XXXX in response to him calling me a n----r. He stated as good Christians we are to turn the other cheek as Jesus did. Problem is, I’m not a f-----g Christian and that old book, made of fiction and limited non-fiction, called the bible, never once stated Jesus was called a n----r.

'How dare you swat me for standing up for my rights for demanding that I be treated as an equal human being. That day I made a life decision that i will not tolerate racial derogatory terms spoken to me.
