I’ve been following closely the news story about Chris Dorner, who is now suspected of murdering three people, including one police officer, and shooting another two police officers. He is targeting police and their families for what he says is a corrupt system that robbed him of his name and his life.
You can read all the details here.
However, I started noticing that some of the details the media was talking about didn’t fit the released manifesto I’ve read everywhere. Especially interesting, is that KFI’s morning news regurgitator Bill Handel had mentioned some pro-Obama comments and anti-NRA sentiments in the manifesto.
But these weren’t in the copy that KFI themselves released – see for yourself.
This video from FOX News Los Angeles reports that the manifesto was 22 pages long, while the manifesto released was only 11.
The page where FOX News LA had the manifesto is now deleted.Comments don’t mention the manifesto at all.
KTLA also has the abbreviated manifesto, with this parenthetical: “KTLA has removed the names of a number of officers out of respect for their privacy.”
FOX News reposted the manifesto, with all the names redacted as the authorities asked, but it still doesn’t have the second half.
ABC 7 has also posted a redacted half version of the manifesto.
Being curious, I started looking for a complete copy, but other mainstream news media only had the abbreviated copy.
However, I was able to find a complete copy of the posting, from the website “Crime File News” – the details in it corroborate with the reading that Bill Handel gave on the KFI morning show today.
So why did they edit it?
