It is troubling to hear that military veteran Christopher Jordan Dorner was executed in a cabin fire regardless of his alleged crimes. It appears that the Los Angeles Police Department and other supporting agencies made good upon shoot to kill orders and we want to know who gave the order to set fire to a cabin Dorner was allegedly holed up in surrounded by law enforcement officers..

The LAPD in its quest to kill Christopher Dorner, shot at least two innocent bystanders and shot up the vehicle of a third victim. The victims looked nothing like Dorner, two Hispanic women and one white male. One truck the victims were passengers in was metallic blue and the other victim, a white male was traveling in a black truck. Lawyers representing two of the victims state that they were never given a chance to give themselves up. Stray bullets in the residential neighborhood where the two women were delivering morning newspapers hit several homes and cars and fortunately, no one else was injured.

The allegations of racism, antisemitism, brutality and corruption at the highest levels of the LAPD made by Christopher Jordan Dorner in his press statement deserved to see the light day and still can through Congressional hearings. Several former officers have come forward confirming allegations made in Dorner’s “Letter to America”.

We the people demand a Congressional investigation and public hearings on the issue of National Police Violence & Corruption and call for a US Justice Department investigation into whether or not Christopher Dorner's constitutional rights were violated when San Bernardino Sherriff deputies reportedly burned him alive in a cabin.

We call on the President of the United States and Congress to lead during this national crisis only highlighted by the events concerning Christopher Dorner.

We demand and deserve full transparency from the US government concerning these matters and public hearings to commence as soon as possible.

      Petition Organizer

      There will be no manhunt for Hassan Hamdy, the NYPD detective who killed unarmed National Guardsman Noel Palonco. In fact, a grand jury cleared Hamdy of any wrongdoing, despite the fact he shot an unarmed man for supposedly cutting off an unmarked police vehicle in traffic. All Hamdy had to say was he, “feared for his life” because he thought Noel was, “reaching for a weapon”. And, even though the eye witness sitting in the car right next to Noel said he complied with the officer requests and ,”The last thing she saw was his hands on the steering wheel,” that wasn’t enough evidence for the grand jury. http://www.blackyouthproject.com/2013/02/another-killer-cop-goes-free/

      On February 14, 2013, while a lily White canvass of Thursday morning quarterbacks, peppered with a few Black, self-conscious tokens, pundit away about Mr. Dorner, many of us understand the truth behind his fury. I do not condone the killing of [actually] innocent people, but I do condone every ounce of his heartbreak, disenchantment and anger. http://blacktalkradionetwork.com/page/christopher-jordan-dorner-a-kindred-son-righteousness-02152013

      Yesterday was not simply a day like any other, and yet an entire system is grinding into motion to ensure that the peculiarities of the day be promptly forgotten: Another crazy person lost it and committed unthinkable acts. The act of killing stands in and speaks for the person: Look what he has done. Of course he must be crazy. Case closed.

      Cop-on-cop crime in LA: American blowback

      In a letter titled only "Last Resort" and addressed to "America," Christopher Dorner makes clear his grievances, his objectives and the rationale behind his actions - a chilling declaration of war on the Los Angeles Police Department. The LAPD has long played a vanguard role in white supremacist policing in the United States.

      Rodney King all over again. This is the 2nd time with LAPD discrimination. This time resulting in Chris Dorner being pushed to the edge and killing innocents. How much longer is LAPD going to be allowed to perpetrate their own brand of discriminating brutality before they are held accountable? Chris Dorner, an honorably discharged vet, served this country and would've continued to serve if LAPD didn't continue to perpetuate their own brand of discriminating againsts blacks and hispanics. One of the men on LAPD's review board was the past supervisor of Teresa Evans. That in itself tells you those hearings were biased. If he gave up Evans the spotlight would've turned on him asking "were you aware of her brutality". He'd be on the spot if he's not already and let's all hope he is. The truth has to come out for the safety of all citizens in Los Angeles.
