LAPD accused of pandering to fugitive ex-cop by reopening final case2/10/2013
The Los Angeles Police Department announced it will reopen the case that got fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner fired. The manhunt for the former Navy reservist accused of killing three people is ongoing, and the LAPD’s move is being criticized as pandering to a possible murderer. In his disturbing manifesto, Dorner accused the LAPD of racism and vowed to keep killing until the truth about his termination is known. The rant prompted some to call him a hero and even petition the White House to have him pardoned. LAPD officials say the department is not appeasing Dorner but rather being transparent after numerous scandals shook the public's trust. Police Chief Charlie Beck said he fears Dorner's rampage has resurrected the "ghosts of the LAPD's past." [Source]
