From: A fellow officer who do the job in the name of JUSTICE!
To: Officer Christopher Dorner
Subject: A peaceful ending
Regarding: Your name
Dear families, friends, loved ones and fellow law enforcement officers, my prayers and most sincere condolences to all of you. This letter is not written to disrespect nor disregard your grave lost and peace. Nor is it intended as lack of sympathy or to enhance your pain but perhaps assist all of you with bearing it. May God continue to bless all of you as he continue to watch over all of you and by his all might grace and mercy bring this tragic nightmare to a peaceful ending.
Officer Dorner, I hope and pray you hear the reading of this letter because this is a new day and a new beginning for you and all involved. This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24 This is the day you can be the man you profess yourself to be and that many know you to be. Please surrender without further incident.
When I read your manifesto, my heart just dropped and continues to be very heavy. I have shed many tears while reading of your experience with the department and the measures you've taken these past seven days, to be heard and to clear your good name. As I continue to shed tears and pray for you and all of us involved, you most know by now that you have been heard loud and clear. Reading of your experience and witnessing your present behavior has opened many wounds for myself as well as fellow officers, who have experienced similar situations. You're absolutely right officer Dorner, "no one grow up and wants to be a cop killer. It was against everything you ever was." But this is exactly what you have become! It's been said, do not judge a man unless you walk a mile in his boots and I am certainly, not here to judge you by any means however, I have definitely walked a mile and then some in your boots. Much of what you have expressed in your manifesto, I can totally relate to, which is why I'm reaching out to you. I share your pain however, not by any means do I condone your actions. I will not go into detail of my experiences because it is not the purpose of this letter. "Come to me, all you who are weary and burden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
You are not alone, Officer Dorner and you have never been alone. You and I have quite a bit in common. I do not recall ever meeting you but I'm certain we may have cross paths in the halls of one of the many department builds, or at the academy. I'm not sure but your face is very familiar. I too, began my law enforcement career as an LAPD Explorer, I too severed in the United States Armed Forces, I too hold the use of my name in high regards, I too believe in integrity in what I say and do, I too held myself to higher standards of others, I too have been miss labeled, I too have felt wronged by the department, I too have been in this dark place you currently find yourself and I too was not religious when these unfortunate experiences took place and I am not religious as I type this letter. However, I do have a relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Officer Dorner, I surrender all of myself and wrong I felt to the Lord and I believe and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savor. It is because of my relationship with our Lord and Savior that I have the ability and courage to reach out to you. "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6
You can be redeemed Ofcr Dorner! Your mother told you that sometimes bad things happen to good people and you refused to accept that, is what you stated. Officer Dornor, good people don't do bad things and many bad things, horrific things has transpired because of your actions and related to your actions. It's been said hurting people, hurt people. I believe you are hurting, you've been hurt and as you stated this is your last resort. "It's never too late to be what you might have been" George Elite You no longer have to live in this dark place, there is hope. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus." Romans 3:23-24
You mentioned these actions you've resorted to are completely out of character for you, a man who always wore a smile. Yes, your actions will be vilified however, you know the man you truly are. "Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are." John Wooden Officer Dorner, Chief Beck has announced the reopening of you case and other related concerns you expressed, in your manifesto. Thank you Chief and may God continue to bless you and your loved ones. Other outside sources has also began inquires into your case. "You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them." Mayo Angelou
Officer Dorner, you stated you never had the opportunity to have a family of your own. It not too late and you have your mother and sister who love you dearly. Give your mother, your sister and yourself the opportunity to embrace one another once again. Ease their pain and suffering as well as yours. I am without a doubt certain your love for them far out weighs any feelings or thoughts your may currently be experiencing and have toward the LAPD and our family members. A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son grief to his mother. Proverbs 10:1
Officer Dorner, you are loved! Fellow officers, fellow veterans, fellow Americans love you, your mother loves you, your sister loves you, your friends and loved ones love you but always remember God loves you most. I beg of you, please surrender peaceful! Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room wrath of God, for it is written: "VENGENANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord. Romans 12: 19
