An intense manhunt has been taking place for the past few days in Southern California, as police hope to bring in Christopher Dorner, an ex-LAPD officer and Navy reservist who’s suspected in the shooting of a number of people, including three who died.
After four days, authorities offered a $1 million reward for information leading to Dorner’s capture. CBS News says tips have already started coming in as a result of the reward, including one that led to an investigation of a Lowe’s store. People in Irvine, CA are surrounded by police officers, as they try to protect people who may be targets, based on the Facebook manifesto Dorner posted. Dorner is also suspected of placing a phone call to the father of one of the dead, Monica Quan, with taunts about his inability to protect his daughter. CBS even says there was a higher police presence at the Grammys because of the manhunt. Those who have been targeted may be moved to alternate locations and placed under witness protection.
While thousands of people are hoping for Dorner’s quick capture, there are some who support him. Social media sites have been collecting messages of support for Dorner over the past days. This Facebook page, We Are All Chris Dorner, has more than 2,000 likes, and says that he is “the victim of a manhunt and smear campaign.”
