In a lengthy manifesto posted online, Dorner wrote, “I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders. I know I will be villified by the LAPD and the media. Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name.”
The manifesto named several current and former LAPD rank and personnel, including retired Capt. Randy Quan (pictured here behind the podium), father of Monica Quan.
