Former LAPD officer Joe Jones wrote in sympathy for Christopher Dorner.
Jones, now 48, was an LAPD patrol officer for 9 years before retiring in 1998. His manifesto sheds light on the truth in Dorner’s claims of discrimination and wrongdoing by the LAPD. He addresses Dorner directly several times throughout the manifesto.
Jones doesn’t condone killing innocent people, but still tried to soothe Dorner in his own manifesto:
1) I had my home viciously attacked by a gunman with my family and myself inside the house. No arrests were made and my family and I Received very little support.
2) I had my Civil Rights violated on several occasions. I was falsely arrested at gunpoint by the Sheriffs as an Officer who ID’d himself and was conspired against by both LAPD and the Sheriffs when my Civil case went to Trial.
3) I was falsely accused on more than one occasion and simply placed in a position that the trust was so compromised that I could no longer wear the Uniform. Also know there were many more episodes. All of these issues are well documented.
