Protesters support Dorner outside of LAPD
LOS ANGELES -- A small group of protesters rallied outside Los Angeles Police Department headquarters Saturday saying he was wronged by the department.
Dorner died after a shootout and fire this week at a mountain cabin.
Protesters told the Los Angeles Times at the Saturday rally 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.
