Christopher Dorner And The LAPD: Were His Allegations True?

Posted: Updated:

Former LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner's murderous rampage was put to an end in a shootout in the Big Bear area. Dorner is now dead but so is a San Bernardino County Deputy who was killed in that shootout. And so are 3 other people who did not know Dorner or know anything about his past problems with the LAPD.

Nothing can excuse the murders of innocent people. But during and after the Dorner manhunt, dozens of current and former Police Officers called or emailed Fox 11 Legal Analyst Robin Sax to tell her that the allegations Dorner posted in his online "manifesto" about the LAPD rang true. Allegations of racism, and a code of silence that protects bad cops.

Tonight, we investigate those issues in this Special Edition of True Crime Stories.

TRUE CRIMES PART ONE: The Allegations

Robin Sax and Phil Shuman look into Dorner's allegations that he was treated unfairly by the LAPD. We'll hear from current and former officers who make similar claims. And we'll talk about what the LAPD is doing to investigate the Board of Rights hearing that ended with Dorner being fired.

TRUE CRIMES PART TWO: The Hearing

We'll hear part of the videotaped testimony from the witness who was central to the Board of Rights hearing that ended with Dorner's dismissal from the LAPD. Robin Sax and Phil Shuman discuss what happens at these hearings. They also talk with attorney Brad Gage, who has successfully represented former officers in legal disputes with the LAPD.

TRUE CRIMES PART THREE: The Mind of a Killer

In Dorner's now infamous online rant, he asked that his brain be preserved for study because of his severe depression. Phil Shuman and Fox 11 Legal Analyst Robin Sax talk with Psychiatrist Dr. Mark Goulston about recognizing signs of depression and PTSD, and what can be done to help people struggling with mental illness.

TRUE CRIMES PART FOUR: Ramifications on the LAPD

Two of Dorner's victims, Jeremiah Mackay and Michael Crain were law enforcement officers.  Both were shot dead by Ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner.  Phil Shuman and Fox 11 Legal Analyst Robin Sax discuss the ramifications the Dorner case is having on the LAPD.
