American Renaissance Editor Jared Taylor Decries The Racializing Of The Chris Dorner Case

Although former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner is dead and gone, the discussion about him has not ceased. It is now believed that Dorner was not killed by the fire which engulfed the cabin, or by a deputy's bullet, but that Dorner shot himself in the head. Dorner's victims included NCCA college basketball coach Monica Quan, USC public safety officer Keith Lawrence, San Bernardino Sheriff's Deputy Jeremiah MacKay and Riverside policeman Michael Crain. On Saturday February 16th, 2013, dozens of protesters rallied outside LAPD headquarters in support of Dorner. While supporters hastened to assure the public they did not approve of Dorner's actions, they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorner's death and injuries to the innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him. Some claim there is corruption within the LAPD and it has gone too far, while others said they want allegations of racism, brutality and corruption in Dorner's manifesto to be investigated.

But now the case has taken another turn. In response to a few critics who claim that Dorner, who was black, was a victim of racism, the LAPD announced that they intend to open a full investigation to see whether the department might have made a mistake when they fired Dorner five years ago. This has aroused the ire of American Renaissance editor Jared Taylor, who expresses his objections in the video embedded below:

Taylor provides an abridged account of the events leading to Dorner's termination from LAPD:

In 2007, Dorner was a rookie in the LAPD working under a training officer, a white woman named Teresa Evans. According to her records from that period, he was preoccupied with race: what the races of suspects were and the races of the officers who arrested them. He wanted her to tell him everything she knew about racism in the department and whether she had ever been mistreated. She told him they just ought to do their jobs.

On July 28, 2007, they were called to a hotel in San Pedro, California, where a man was behaving strangely. He turned out to be mentally ill, got rowdy, and had to be restrained. Two hotel employees and Sergeant Eddie Hernandez of the LAPD saw what happened.

Twelve days later, Teresa Evans wrote up a supervisor’s evaluation of Dorner in which she said he had to improve in “officer safety and common sense and good judgment.” He was still on probation, and this was potentially bad enough to wash him out of the department. The next day, the day after he got this bad evaluation, Dorner reported that Teresa Evans had used improper force on the mentally ill man. He claimed she kicked him in the chest and face.

This charge resulted in a full internal investigation, in which 12 witnesses gave formal testimony. The mentally ill man had made a recorded statement in a lawyer’s office saying that he had been kicked, but when the investigators questioned him formally, his answers were “incoherent and nonresponsive.” The investigation concluded that the charges against Teresa Evans were false, and the LAPD fired Dorner in September 2008. He sued in Superior Court to get his job back and lost.

Dorner appealed that decision to the Court of Appeals of California.

The appeals court noted that witnesses did not see any kicks, that a photo of the mentally ill man, taken right after his arrest, did not show any dirt on his white shirt that would have indicated he was kicked, and Dorner didn’t make a complaint about excessive force until after he got the bad evaluation. So they also upheld Dorner's termination.

The murder of Monica Quan was particularly heinous. Jared Taylor discloses that Randal Quan is a lawyer who represented Dorner during the internal LAPD investigation in 2008, and that Dorner was reportedly unhappy with the way Quan defended him. So Dorner purportedly took revenge by killing Randal's daughter Monica, along with her fiance. It was only afterwards that he started hunting police officers.

Based on the information provided, Jared Taylor reaches the following conclusion:

So, here we have a guy who has completely jumped the tracks, ran around southern California killing people, and the Los Angeles police are going to reopen the 2008 investigation and go sniffing for racism.

What this means is that you can be a psychopath and a cop-killer, but if you are black and you yell about racism, then “Oh my gosh, we need to look into this.” Police chief Charlie Beck is saying, “We don’t trust our own system. We don’t trust our own people. We don’t trust the courts. We think this guy who would have killed us all if he could have, is on to something.”
