In early February 2013, there were a series of shootings in the Los Angeles area. Among those killed were a Riverside police officer, a San Bernardino sheriff’s deputy and the daughter of a former police captain.
It turned out to be a one-man war against the police department waged by a former officer. In a 6,000-word manifesto published on his Facebook page, a man named Christopher Dorner said he had been discriminated against and driven out of the department.
The manhunt around Southern California intensified, and on February 12, Dorner was located. He had barricaded himself inside a cabin in Big Bear. That cabin was besieged by authorities and Dorner was killed.
Just hours before this occurred, I was interviewed by Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo on CNN after the shooter’s past. Here’s a clip of the interview.
