Los Angeles police launched a manhunt Thursday for former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, who is suspected of murdering two people last weekend and killing one person and wounding another in a shooting Thursday morning. A lengthy manifesto on Dorner’s Facebook page states his support for President Barack Obama and CNN host Piers Morgan, and his hatred of both the National Rifle Association and former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Dorner is suspected of shooting at two LAPD officers in Corona, Calif. on Thursday and then firing on two LAPD officers in Riverside, killing one. He is wanted in the murders of Monica Quan and her fiance Keith Lawrence, who were found dead Sunday evening.

Quan was reportedly the daughter of an LAPD captain who failed to save Dorner’s job after Dorner was accused of making a false report against a training officer. Dorner, who alleged that the training officer exhibited brutality while making an arrest, was reportedly removed from the LAPD.

The manifesto, reportedly 22 pages long, expressed the suspected killer’s support for President Obama and anti-gun CNN host Piers Morgan.

“You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President,” Dorner wrote of those opposed to President Obama.

“Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama,” Dorner wrote.

“[G]ive Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien and Visa card,” he added.

“Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws.”

Dorner also praised Jeffrey Toobin, Bill Cosby, and Charlie Sheen, among others, in his manifesto, and disparaged NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre.

“Wayne LaPierre, President of the NRA, you’re a vile and inhumane piece of shit,” Dorner wrote.
