LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) LAPD Chief Charlie Beck has just announced hes reopening the case that resulted in accused cop killer and former officer Christopher Dorners termination.
Im not doing this to appease him. Im doing this so the community has faith in what the police department does, Beck said in an exclusive interview Saturday with CBS2s Pat Harvey.
In a 20-page manifesto posted on Facebook, Dorner allegedly vows revenge against several former LAPD co-workers whom he claims ended his career.
This investigation has already been reviewed at multiple levels If I have to redo something or deal with an issue I will deal with it publicly, said Beck, adding that interviews about the case cannot legally be made public for the interviewers safety.
The police chief said Dorner has not reached out to him in any way.
He stressed that if Dorner were to contact the police department and surrender he would guarantee his safety.
CBS News reported Saturday that investigators found weapons and cold weather survival gear inside the burned-out truck belonging to Dorner after it was located in Big Bear. Several law enforcement agencies have been scouring the area for the triple murder suspect.
Im not going to comment on what was recovered. Im not going to comment on where we think he is or what we think hes doing, said Beck, who added that would be revealed in time.
Harvey mentioned that thousands of people are publicly supporting the triple murder suspect on a Facebook page.
Im surprised about it. Ive been doing this for 36 years and not a lot surprises me, Beck said.
The manifesto includes dozens of targets and warned that their families will be harmed.
I will utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordinance and survival training Ive been given, Dorner writes. You have misjudged a sleeping giant.
The manifesto goes on to say, I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, Im terminating yours.
Beck said the situation is putting tremendous stress on those officers and their families.
We have protection details for 50 families. Imagine having to go through your daily existence like that, knowing your family was the target of a trained assassin like Dorner It is absolutely unthinkable, the police chief said.
Beck said he is putting all the departments resources into finding Dorner.
This is not just about cops, this is about all of us. There is a small, small portion of the population that puts themselves at risk for the benefit of society, and when theyre attacked, it puts the rest of the population under attack.
I will do everything it takes to capture Dorner and to keep our police officers and the city safe, everything it takes.
At the end of the interview, Harvey asked Beck why he chose to grant her the interview exclusively. The police chief explained that he had a good relationship with the CBS2 anchor and thought she was a fair journalist. He said he also wanted to reach out to the African-American community, who Dorner claims is unfairly targeted by LAPD officers.
It may also have to do with Dorner praising Harvey in his manifesto: Pat Harvey, Ive always thought you carried yourself professionally and personally the way a strong black woman should. Your articulation and speech is second to none. You are the epitome of a journalist/anchor. You are America.
My disdain for Charlie Beck has doubled.

Investigate every grievance because he killed lots of innocent people?
Prepare for a lot more mass murders, then
This is nothing more than Cover Your Ass, the only question that needs to be answered is Why did the Star Chamber hearing choose to ignore the 2 Citizen Witnesses that Testified to the exact same thing as Dorner?? If they believe Dorner lied, then all 3 lied, and since they all told the SAME LIE, Wouldn’t that be a Conspiracy to Commit Perjury?? And Since the Star Chamber had to believe just that, are they not All Guilty of Misprison of a Felony??
“Misprision of felony” is still an offense under United States federal law after being codified in 1909 under 18 U.S.C. § 4:
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This offense, however, requires active concealment of a known felony rather than merely failing to report it.
The last time I checked the Police Arrest people that CONSPIRE TO COMMIT PERJURY??? or do they Only believe Dorner was lying and the 2 witnesses were truthful?? Or do they Know it was the truth and cannot allow ANYONE to cross that Blue Line of Silence, regardless of the circumstances?
The LAPD has a track record of discrimination. It could also be a ruse to get him to turn himself in.
They never ever ever learn.
no one is going to trust the LAPD... have faith in it... but i'm glad he's reopening the case... but i think a group other than the LAPD should look into it because--well, i don't trust the LAPD--have any faith in it... an independent group...
Just think. If he had said that he was a homosexual in his "manifesto", it would be "millions" supporting him. We live in a sick, sick country. It does make it easier though for a normal person to understand how the Kenyan got himself "elected" TWICE!
i think so too, but i doubt he would fall for it...
"Some animals are more equal than others"
I know I am going to get flamed, but parts of all this are not adding up.
Of course not! However putting out this little bit of publicity out when the trail's gone stone cold on Dorner might draw him out, right? Right?
“Beck said the situation is putting tremendous stress on those officers and their families.

I guess it sucks to be a Jack Boot... Imagine what it’s going to be like when they make all gun owners their enemy though confiscation of fire arms...
He is a big dangerous dummy.
THe “Manifesto” was just a string of facebook postings penned by a self-absorbed loser.
Beck, unless this really is a ploy to get him to turn himself in, is only going to makes things in L.A> MUCH worse.
