Dozens rally at LAPD headquarters to protest manhunt for fugitive ex-police officer Christopher Dorner

ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — Dozens of protesters rallied outside Los Angeles police headquarters in support of Christopher Dorner, the ex-LAPD officer and suspected killer of four who died after a shootout and fire this week at a mountain cabin.

Protesters told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/11Ndm6i) at the rally today that they did not support Dorner's deadly methods, but objected to police corruption and brutality, and believed Dorner's claims of racism and unfair treatment by the department that he said led to the rampage.

Thirty-year-old protester Michael Nam held a sign with a flaming tombstone and the inscription "RIP Habeas Corpus." He and others said they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorner's death and injuries to innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him.
