School Mentioned in Dorner Manifesto Closed

NORWALK, Calif. (KTLA) — Fugitive murder suspect Christopher Dorner remains on the loose Friday morning. Schools in Big Bear are closed, but so is a school in Norwalk.

On Thursday, deputies were posted outside the Norwalk Christian School as a precaution.

Dorner made reference to the school in his online manifesto, saying the school is where he first experienced racism.

“My first recollection of racism was in the first grade at Norwalk Christian elementary school in Norwalk,” he says in the posting.

“A fellow student called be a (N-word) on the playground,” he continues.

“My response was swift and non-lethal. I struck him with a fast and hard kick. He cried and reported it to a teacher. The teacher reported it to the principal.”

Dorner goes on: “The principal swatted (the student) for using a derogatory word toward me. He then for some unknown reason swatted me for striking (student) in response to calling me a (N-word).”

“How dare you swat me for standing up for my rights for demanding that I be treated as an equal human being,” Dorner rails.

He adds, “That day I made a life decision that i will not tolerate racial derogatory terms spoken to me.”

He then says that, “Terminating me for telling the truth of a Caucasian officer kicking a mentally ill man is disgusting,” referring to his firing from the LAPD in 2009.

Dorner was terminated after the internal affairs investigators determined he lied when he accused his training officer of kicking a suspect.

Deputies reached out to Norwalk Christian officials and encouraged them to close the school on Friday.

Investigators say there is no reason to believe Dorner is in the area, but they are taking extra precautions for the safety of the children who attend the school.

    I do not agree what he has done. But there is so much coruption in the L.A.P.D. He just knew this would be the only way to get anyone to listen to him. So sad….

    • BCoble

      LAPD corruption instigated this whole thing- LIKE ALWAYS- and they're the ones with blood on their hands….like shooting up a truck with two old ladies delivering newspapers OR kicking a handcuffed mentally disabled man- Oh yea "real" BADA$SES….

      This is not the best way to gain listeners. You cannot get rid of racism. You can probably make people in a job follow rules, but you cannot stop someone from being a racist. A person has to decide that they no longer want to be a racist. You cannot change what is in a person's heart- you can try, but it's probably better to fix yourself or your own perception….

    If he had issue with being called a N word, taking on a position in the Navy, and police officer isn't any easier. Having to work in Law Enforcement 17 years, officers are called names and they put up with a lot of nasty comments. He got swatted because he too did the wrong thing by hitting back instead of reporting it to the teachers. He couldn't control His anger. When he got let go by the PD, instead of realizing God has other plans and move on, he got Angry and wants revenge. It could have been handled by the court and Lawyers but he is taking it on the wrong way. SO he will be swatted big time by being put away in jail when all he had to do is take it to court.

      That is part of his problem, he did take it to court. Not taking his side but he feels he has a reason behind his anger. It isn't expecting his fellow officers to be the ones name calling, after all these are grown men who are suppose to have honor. I hate that he felt he had to kill in order to be heard.

      Sadly, the girl he killed was daughter of his lawyer, a former LAPD officer. Maybe if he sought counsel who was not a department insider, he'd he looking at a multimillion dollar wrongful termination settlement, instead of a $1M bounty on his head..

    Apparently no one took the time out to listen to this guy. I do not approve of murder as a way of expressing yourself either. But when all is said an done, someone needs to look into all of these allegations that he made in his manifesto. If it is found to be true, I expect to see some major changes within LAPD.

      You are so right that no one took the time to listen to him! No need to murder anyone but I guess he just could not take it anymore. Everyone handles & copes with incidents differently. People do cover up stuff, people do "hook up" undeserving & unqualified people in everything. Maybe he was tired of seeing all the unfairness, problem is he went at it the wrong way.This has surely caught whoevers attention he wanted to get. After being fired, he probably felt shame and angry that he was treated unjust?? So he wanted them to hurt…now its too sad because others are suffering worse than he could ever hurt. Whats going on with people?? Respect, love and honesty is what we need…

    Now that are eyes are opened to the truth (Dorner's truth), what are we civilians going to do about it? Something does need to DESPERATELY change in the LAPD because this corruption has been going on WAY TOO TOO LONG!! The PD, all of them statewide, need an OVERHAUL!

    I'm a new resident in a new house I purchased in an LA city. I heard an intruder shortly after I moved here, and called the PD. They came instaneously. Four years later, I had a domestic incident, called the police, and they showed up TWO HOURS LATER. This is NOT a big city. I'm wondering if whether after the first call that they came to, they found out I was African American, so that they didn't care about responding to the second call timely??? Hmm, after reading that manifesto, I wouldn't doubt that that was the reason.

    I believe that Christopher Dorner was a victim of the "thin blue line" translated " if you're not with us you're against us. " He made a moral decision to tell the truth but he went against the "good ole boys" so they got rid of him because they felt he did not have their back then and wouldn't in the future. Case in point "the Kelly Thomas" incident. If there is no film or cell phone evidence then you are out of luck when you go against the official police version of what happens. He still thinks what he said makes a difference. It won't. Unfortunately he thinks it will. Like the tv commercial he is saying "Do you hear me now?" His response to his treatment is unacceptable, innocent people should not pay the price; the good (including the cops) should not suffer with the bad. A tragedy all around.

    It is so easy to be critical of something you know nothing about, just snatches of info from here and there. If you want to change the LAPD why you don't you join and change it from the inside instead of criticizing something you know nothing about? If you find any justification in Dorner's actions then you are as depraved as he is. We all suffer from injustice. I was just laid off from my job of 22 years because of nothing I did except turning 62 years old. Life is not fair. But there is a whole world out there to explore and discover and new people to meet. Dorner is obsessed which is the first criteria for mental illness. He is not a martyr.

  • Justified

    The cops who shot those civilians need to be arrested TODAY. Not tomorrow. But everyone knows they will walk which is why so many have lost respect for law enforcement.

    I want someone to justify why our local law-enforcement look like wannabe soldiers. The pictures they show could be from any nation under a tyrannical regime.

    Back off the 2nd amendment. If you disarm the paramilitary aka local law-enforcement then you can TALK to us about our rights under the 2nd amendment. As long as the police are armed and there are bad apples in the force, we as civilians should be as armed as they are.

    Nevertheless, this is a sad situation. Such a young man, not even really middle aged and probably could have rebuilt his life doing something else.
