A $1 million reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of former Los Angeles cop-turned-alleged-cop-killer, Christopher Dorner.
In a press conference aired Sunday by NBC News, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said it is the largest “local” reward ever offered, a necessity because capturing Dorner is “critical.”
Los Angles Police Chief Charlie Beck told reporters the reward money was raised through public and private donations by concerned residents and area businesses.
During the press conference, Beck said:
Some may ask, “Why so large?” This is an act, and make no mistake about it, of domestic terrorism. This is a man who has targeted those we entrust to protect the public. His actions cannot go unanswered. A society is defined by what it values. And we value our law enforcement family. That’s why the reward is so significant.
Beck said over 50 LAPD families are under police protection because Dorner named them as targets in an 11-page manifesto he published on Facebook.
“We ask the public, please, help us to protect you,” Beck said. “Help us to find Dorner before he is able to kill again.”
