L.A. Offers $1M Reward for Ex-Cop

The city of Los Angeles is offering a $1 million reward—the largest in Southern California’s history—for information leading to the capture of Christopher Joseph Dorner, a rogue ex-police officer suspected of killing of three people and wounding two. Meanwhile, police said on Saturday that they will reopen the investigation into the 2009 firing of Dorner, as the fugitive continued to elude authorities after enacting an apparent revenge plot against the LAPD for firing him in 2009 for allegedly making false statements against his training office. Acknowledging that he is “aware” of the LAPD’s history of racism, police chief Charlie Beck insisted the investigation is “not to appease a murderer” but rather to assure the community that the department is fair and transparent.
