Former member of the LAPD and murderer of L.A. policeman (he shot and injured two others) Christopher Dorner is at large. Dorner wrote this dark and disturbing manifesto before hunting and killing those who he feels disrespected him. Believe it or not, the story of cold-blooded cop killer Christopher Dorner has a football connection. His manifesto mentions old football injuries and their possible effect on his twisted mind. He also seems to be the only person who still believes in Tim Tebow.
It’s an inconvenient truth when you realize the ramblings of a murderer have some very valid points, especially on LAPD corruption/racial atrocities, gun control, Westboro Baptist Church and Dave Brubeck.
Here’s what Christopher Dorner had to say about Tim Tebow. Unfortunately for #15 no NFL GMs share Dorner’s view:
Tebow, I really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again and the game. You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be “Tebowing” when you reach your next team. I have faith in you. Get out of that circus they call the Jets and away from the reality TV star, Rex Ryan, and Mark Rapist Sanchez.
Well, he’s right about the New York Jets being a reality tv frathouse; with Ryan the house social chair. But Ben Roethlisberger has the rapist reputation (charges were never prosecuted, a cop should know that) not Sanchez. He’s the butt fumble guy. With all this talk lately of CTE and concussions, and just how many brain bruises one can receive playing football, the following excerpt is not to be ignored. We’ve seen players like former Bears safety Dave Duerson and Patriots linebacker Junior Seau suffer extreme brain damage, and later commit suicide. The cop killer Christopher Dorner turned his aggression outward instead. One day Dorner’s brain may be analyzed and evidence of severe damage related to his football days may be found.
Since 6/26/08 when I was relieved of duty and 1/2/09 when I was terminated I have been afflicted with severe depression. I’ve had two CT scans during my lifetime that are in my medical record at Kaiser Permanente. Both are from concussions resulting from playing football. The first one was in high school, 10/96. The second was in college and occurred in 10/99. Both were conducted at Kaiser Permanente hospitals in LA/Orange county. These two CT scans should give a good baseline for my brain activity before severe depression began in late 2008.
