Experts: Murder suspect’s manifesto reveals unraveled mind


Daily News (Los Angeles) — Brian Levin, a professor of criminal justice at Cal State San LA-Daily-NewsBernardino, director of the CSUSB Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism and a former New York City police officer, is quoted in an article about Christopher Dorner, who is accused in the killings of three people and the object of a massive manhunt in Southern California and Nevada.

Dorner, 33, of La Palma is wanted in the killings of Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiance, Keith Lawrence, in Irvine on Sunday. Quan is the daughter of former police captain Randal Quan, who represented Dorner in his departmental hearing that resulted in his firing from the LAPD in 2008. Dorner also is being sought in connection with the fatal shooting of a Riverside police officer and wounding another early Thursday, as well as a shootout with Los Angeles police officers in Corona that same morning.

The newspaper erroneously identified Levin as a former LAPD officer.

The article was published Feb. 7, 2013, and also appeared in various newspapers of the Los Angeles News Group and Bay Area News Group, as well as in the Lowell, Mass., Sun.
