FLORIDA, February 11, 2013 — Over the last few days, we have heard much about the LAPD officer-turned-wanted murder Chris Dorner. 

Dorner wrote a two-part manifesto laying out his rationale for his actions (Read Part I and Part II here). Officials also provided information on the file regarding his firing from the police force, available here

One group which has now come out in support of the suspected serial killer is the hacktivist collective Anonymous. So far, Anonymous has claimed to sabotage the LAPD’s website, doing so in a gleeful fashion. Listed below is what appears to be a statement drafted by the group, which makes clear why it is supporting Dorner.

The document was originally published on Pastebin.

(Journalist’s Note: In the wake of Dorner’s death, Anonymous has apparently released a new statement in which it promises to take further action. You can read the statement here.)  


Hello, officers of the Los Angeles Police Department, we are anonymous.

 As national headlines regarding the vigilante acts of former LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner continue to intensify, we have decided amongst ourselves to pursue an appropriate recourse. 

And so we watched with dread and utter hilarity as the LAPD began to pursue this man. 

However the department has proven once more that it is incapable of serving the public, look no further than to the women who became LAPD’s most recent victims. The two were shot without warning and were not even given the chance to surrender simply because LAPD thinks they are above the law. 

No one is above the law. 

In coordination with federal authorities, the LAPD is now conducting a massive manhunt for The Dark Knight Christopher Dorner, so that they may effectively silence him forever without due process.

 And now since the authorization of drones have been approved for the first time ever to pursue and execute an American citizen on United States Soil, the US Government will stage this event to set a new precedent from which it can assassinate American citizens for little to no reason at all.

 But do not misinterpret us for we do not condone the vicious acts that Dorner has allegedly partaken in. Instead we sympathize and resonate with his struggle. Dorner was not born a killer he was a law abiding citizen that was tainted by the corrupt and inhumane practices of the Los Angeles Police Department who serve only themselves. 

We however do not accept this fate, and call upon our brothers to raise arms against the LAPD, for justice and for the lulz we will rise to disrupt, dismantle and dissect all aspects of the manhunt whilst revealing the LAPD’s unwarranted hypocrisy. 

 We are hated, vilified, and like Dorner, considered to be enemies to the state. But there are those who whisper that we are culture and a necessity that bring truth to a cloaked world. In this spirit we will forge ahead and allow #OperationDorner to commence!
