The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has “historically been a paramilitary organization, more like an army of occupation than a police force”, says Dave Lindorff, an author and investigative journalist in Philadelphia.
Lindorff said ex-cop and Navy veteran Christopher Dorner was fired from the LAPD because he complained about ethnic discrimination and police brutality in the police department.
“[Dorner] was fired after 3 years on the LAPD because he protested against the racism he saw among his fellow officers and against in particular a beating of an arrested man by his superior officer”, he said.
Christopher Dorner, 33, is accused of targeting law enforcement officers and their families in three killings committed in retaliation for his 2008 firing from the Los Angeles Police Department.
