The LAPD announces it will reopen the case of the firing of Dorner, who said in his “manifesto” he released that he will will keep killing until the truth is known about his case. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said in a statemen:
I am aware of the ghosts of the LAPD’s past and one of my biggest concerns is that they will be resurrected by Dorner’s allegations of racism within the Department.
I feel we need to also publicly address Dorner’s allegations regarding his termination of employment, and to do so I have directed our Professionals Standards Bureau and my Special Assistant for Constitutional Policing to completely review the Dorner complaint of 2007; To include a re-examination of all evidence and a re-interview of witnesses. We will also investigate any allegations made in his manifesto which were not included in his original complaint. I do this not to appease a murderer. I do it to reassure the public that their police department is transparent and fair in all the things we do.”
