LAPD Sent 400 Slave Catchers To Keep Officer Chris Dorner From Talking


Heavy |  Comedian Dave Chappelle released a new Netflix segment on Thursday, 8:46, in which he spoke about the death of George Floyd in police custody, Candace Owens, Black Lives Matter protests, CNN’s Don Lemon, and former Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Jordan Dorner, a wanted man who took his own life in 2013 following one of the largest manhunts in the area’s history.

During the half-hour special, Chappelle connects the Minneapolis police officers who stood by and watched while Derek Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds until Floyd died, with the cop-killing spree Dorner embarked on following his dismissal from the LAPD after he complained about a fellow officer kicking a handcuffed mentally ill suspect in the head.

 Dorner sat before a Board of Rights hearing in December 2008 and was accused of making the story up about his fellow officer’s actions. Starting on February 3, 2013, he engaged in a series of targeted shootings in Orange County, Los Angeles County and Riverside County, California.

Dorner, who previously served in the Navy, killed four people in 10 days to avenge what he described in his lengthy manifesto as wrongful termination from the LAPD. Following an intense manhunt, Dorner died of a self-inflicted gun wound in Big Bear, California, on February 12, 2013.
