Suspected gunman manifesto: Politics, pop culture

Posted: Updated:

The rambling manifesto police say was written by suspected killer Christopher Dorner focuses mainly on his anger at the Los Angeles Police Department and those he felt wronged him. But it also shows a more human side, including musings about music, celebrities, politics and even the proper room temperature. Here are some samples, which are as originally written but in some cases edited for length:

---

"It's kind of sad I won't be around to view and enjoy The Hangover III. What an awesome trilogy. Todd Phillips, don't make anymore Hangovers after the third, takes away the originality of its foundation. World War Z looks good and The Walking Dead season 3 (second half) looked intriguing. Damn, gonna miss shark week."

---

"Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" is the greatest piece of music ever, period. Hanz Zimmer, William Bell, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bob Marley, Sam Cooke, Metallica, Rob Zombie, Nora Jones, Marvin Gaye, Jay-Z, and the King (Louis Armstrong) are musical prodigies."

---

"The honorable President George H.W. Bush, they never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country."

---

"Hillary Clinton. You'll make one hell of a president in 2016. Much like your husband, Bill, you will be one of the greatest. ... Look after Bill. He was always my favorite President. Chelsea grew up to be one hell of an attractive woman. No disrespect to her husband."

---

"General Colin Powell, your book "My American Journey" solidified my decision to join the military after college. I had always intended to serve, but your book and journey motivated me. You are an inspiration to all Americans and influenced me greatly."

---

"Gov. Chris Christie. What can I say? You're the only person I would like to see in the White House in 2016 other than Hillary. ... Do one thing for your wife, kids, and supporters. Start walking at night and eat a little less, not a lot less, just a little. We want to see you around for a long time. Your leadership is greatly needed."

---

"Tebow, I really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again and the game. You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be "Tebowing" when you reach your next team. I have faith in you."

---

"Larry David, I agree. 72-82 degrees is way to hot in a residence. 68 degrees is perfect."

---

"Charlie Sheen, you're effin awesome."
