California Police Begin Manhunt for Ex-Cop Suspected in Shootings: Is an Ex-Cop More Dangerous Than a Civilian Criminal?

All police departments spanning California are on a very serious mission: to find an armed and dangerous ex-cop who has allegedly already killed three people -- one of them, a police officer -- and injured two others. And he says he's not stopping anytime soon.

Former officer Christopher Dorner, 33, has written a very long manifesto about why he's doing what he's doing, claiming that the LAPD -- along with other police departments -- are corrupt and that these people must be "terminated." The threats are particularly frightening due to Dorner's skills as a trained LAPD police officer and U.S. Navy reservist. Do you think there is anything scarier than an armed and trained ex-cop on the loose?

    This guy can shoot and he knows police proceedures, that alone makes him more dangerous. When you add his disturbed mind, this guy is very dangerous. But all Excops would be more dangerous than the average civilian.

    I really dont know what to say here, other then who is really to say? You would want to think yes, obviously, given their years of experience and training. But lots of civilians out there are really bad. And we have found that out two months ago. And in too many ohter cases. So i dont really pick yes or no. They are both equally dangerous. Maybe some more then others. but overall they are equal.

    Even more scary, too many militaristic cops presently on duty. As a former peace officer I believe we need to go back to civilian officers that are not just trained to kill but that are trained and have the desire to protect and serve.

    Cops are almost all CIVILIANS. Unlike many of us who have SERVED in the US armed forces, cops are CIVILIANS.

    Mr. Dorner is a veteran as well as a cop. Yeah, he's pretty damned dangerous.

    But, a cop who is only a civilian cop is still a civilian. They aren't part of our elite clique of men and women who have served in the armed forces. The rat bastards are sure to let us know that whenever they pull us over for a ticket, or bust us for whatever. We ain't one of them, and they ain't one of us.

    Oh hell....With this EX-LA COP he is also an ex-sniper from the military and knows a hell of a lot more than any civilian criminal by a long shot.
    What these certain military persons know could do what that no civilian person could even thank of doing if your not trained for these missions from the military, such as the Special Forces, Navy Seal's, Sniper training, Special training in certain fighting procedures, to carry out certain procedures then, when you get out of the service and keep yourself in good shape you never forget on how to do what you were trained to do.
    So thanks to are US government we get all this training paid from their ass, not knowing that certain people get out that could be very dangerous !!!

    could be. An excop should know some of the inside detective work that the average joe doesn't, which could give the ex-cop an advantage.

    of course he has specfic training that will assist him during his killing spree. He is now a murderer that is out for revenge killing innocent people. They need to do what is ever necessary to take him down.

    The fact that he is an ex-cop does not mean a thing. We all know that people are not the problem. People do not kill other people. Guns kill people. Confiscate all guns and America would be safe. The lion would lie down with the lamb. We would have Heaven on Earth. (satire and sarcasm!)

    There are plenty of ex-special-forces people that don't become police who would be more dangerous than an ex-cop.

    Crazed people, like evil people... can both be dangerous. It depends on the resources they have. A fully trained ex-cop knows the rules cops operate under and can find the holes. When I was on the BAF (Back up Alert Force; armed with a shotgun and .45) I knew I could pick holes in our plans to defend the ship. But I didn't because it would have been wrong.

    I read his manifesto. Scary stuff. I now understand why the cops he shot at but did not kill could not give chase. The news story indicated their vehicle was disabled by Dorner. He is packing a Barrett .50 Caliber rifle. Even without armor piercing bullets that gun can put a fist sized hole right through the engine block of any car.

    He is targetting certain people for revenge. In this, he's safer than the average criminal who has us all as a target.
    After reading his "manifesto" I believe he got screwed by the LA Police. He tried to be an honest cop and his fellow officers and administration turned against him. If ever there was an excuse for this behavior, he's got one. Go, Go, Go ...Get 'Em Good!

    If you looked at him a nano-second longer than any stranger looks at another stranger, he could well determine that you recognized him. If he thinks you recognized him there's a better than even chance that he would kill you where you stood. Outside of that I agree that he is after certain people and not your average citizen.

    Again, another unsubstantiated allegation. I don't think he is insane. He could very well be a hero to many. To those hundread of thousands who have run afoul of the typical urban "peace officer" who stops and check them for no other reason than they look fishy. Is it no wonder then that so many are using the second amendment tl defend their gun ownership when we have a runaway criminal justice/industrial complex? Is many cases, criminal justice is there to serve their own interests: the building and profiteering of jails, the overpacking of prosecuting attorneys and their outlandish salaries, the shunting of qustionable politcally connected lawyers into judgeships. Until the US ceases to have the highest per capita incarceration rates, we, the People< should question everything the "criminal/judicial" system does.

    I didn't say he was insane. The LAPD re-opened the case of his termination because they know the public thinks something smells there. What loser chooses as a hero someone who murders the innocent offspring of someone he believes wronged him?

    Maybe we shouldn't rely on the rantings of a triple murderer. If a person is willing to kill people, he might also be willing to lie.

    Apparently, he is so screwed up in his head that he thinks the solution to his problem is to murder people. Even if his firing was totally unjust, his actions sure don't play in his favor.

    Maybe because he knows the ins and outs of law enforcement. But anyone willing to kill is dangerous, so it is really on a criminal by criminal basis.

    Gun training, knowledge of how the police work (Depending on time spent in the service), and also knowledge of criminals are bonuses, plus some more i probably haven't thought of.

    Yes, but not to the degree he thinks he is. He was in the Naval reserve, not the SEALs, and his police training was as a patrolman and not SWAT or any other special detail. Furthermore, I don't believe he has much survival skill in mountainous snow country.
