Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck urged a former LAPD cop suspected of killing 3 people, including a Riverside (Calif.) Police officer, and wounding several others, to turn himself in, at a Thursday morning press conference.

Chief Beck said the manhunt for Christopher Dorner, 33, was "extremely worrisome and scary" because the former officer is armed and dangerous. The former Navy reservist has several weapons at his disposal including an assault rifle, reports the Los Angeles Times.

"I would tell him to turn himself in," Beck told reporters. "This has gone far enough. No one else needs to die."

1. Responding to "The Chosen One" the profile of a successful cop is the same the descriptions of a person that is likely to commit violence in the workplace. These characteristics are independence, identifies strongly with job, and are aggressive. They also occupy 2/6 of the highest risk industries. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workplace_violence)
2. To Driverx, you think to much. Go to a movie and get some rest.

I can't help but feel there is more to this story than meets the eye. Why would a man of honor, a Navy officer, a police officer go off the deep end and why all the media hype? I am not saying he didn't do it... Could he be the innocent hero framed to look evil? Especially considering the "recent incidents" somethings don't add up. We have a school shooting with conflicting reports and cover-ups, a movie theater shooting with conflicting reports and cover-ups, we have 20 dead Navy Seals in a helo crash that was now reportedly shot down, we have Kyle, Noveske, and Ratliff all mysteriously killed... And now Dorner... Hmmmm. Plus the Government wants to eliminate term limits, control the population, abolish the 2nd Amendment and "change" the US Constitution. Remember your Oath, Open your Eyes... Something is wrong with this picture.
