Former police officer Christopher Dorner is suspected in the deaths of a police officer and in two other Los Angeles Police Department related homicides. He has issued a manifesto stating he is out for revenge and to clear his name, saying he was hounded out of the LAPD for reporting incidents of racism and abuse of criminal suspects. The U.S. military has trained him well in killing and the LAPD is right to be fearful of him.

But how does that justify the crazed, homicidal behavior of the LAPD over the past few days?
