Communiqué from an Ex-Cop: Annotated Edition


On the one month anniversary of Christopher Dorner’s death: a new, heavily annotated edition of his Communiqué from an Ex-Cop. 127 footnotes provide extensive historical context for Dorner’s grievances with, and criticisms of, the Los Angeles Police Department. From the LAPD’s internal tribunals to the racket of police overtime to the invention of “suicide by cop” by the university-law enforcement complex, this 85-page publication discards the “rambling manifesto” frame advanced by the media and takes up Dorner’s challenge to journalists to investigate his claims of an institution rife with corruption, racism, and brutality.
