LAPD to reopen probe into fugitive ex-cop's firing
BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles police say they will reopen the disciplinary proceedings that led to the firing of a former officer who's wanted in three killings over the past several days.
Cmdr. Andrew Smith said Saturday that the department will reopen the investigation that apparently has led Christopher Dorner to seek revenge against former LAPD colleagues who he believed cost him his law enforcement career.
Dorner alleged in an online manifesto that he was wrongly fired for reporting that his training officer used excessive force.
Police Chief Charlie Beck tells KCBS-TV the department will thoroughly re-examine Dorner's allegation to ensure that the public knows that the LAPD is "fair and transparent." He says if Dorner wants to surrender, the LAPD will "be happy to hear what he has to say."
