Christopher Dorner's Alleged War On LAPD Heightens Grammys Security
There was heavy security at the Grammy Award show with a blue wall of police outside the Staples Center and uniformed officers in the shadows on the red carpet.
The extra security was in case of an attack by Christopher Dorner, the rogue ex-cop who is suspected of waging a one man war against the LAPD.
It was real a party atmosphere; still, on the other side of that wall, security was as tight as we have ever seen at the Grammy's.
In a TMZ video, Charlie Sheen, one of several celebrities mentioned by Dorner in his manifesto, is appealing to him to surrender.
In a video, Charlie Sheen said, “Christopher Dorner. This is Charlie Sheen. You mentioned me in your manifesto. Thank you for your kind words. I am urging you to call me. Let's figure out together, how to end this thing. Call me. I look forward to hearing from you.”
There are just a handful of images of Dorner since the killing spree began. Security cameras are caught him as his truck pulled up to an auto parts store in San Diego. He gets out and is seen tossing away several items into the trash, including a clip full of ammunition and a helmet.
The video was shot four days after he allegedly murdered the daughter of a former Los Angeles Police Captain and her fiancé.
Dorner is a formidable opponent. Video has emerged of Dorner training at the LAPD academy.
In a video obtained by CNN, he's seen on the firing range, training to disarm a suspect and manhandling a 300 pound dummy.
Fox News obtained a video of Dorner training for combat with a night stick against a heavily armored opponent.
The mayor of Los Angeles announced that there is now a record, one million dollar price on Dorner’s head.
Incredibly, Dorner, who claims he was unjustly treated in the LAPD, is becoming something of a folk hero to some people.
Thousands of people are indicating support for him on Facebook pages, like “I support Christopher Jordan Dorner” and “Christopher Jordan Dorner, a rebel.”
