Salem Man Mentioned In Manifesto
A manifesto written by an ex Los Angeles cop accused of killing an officer and two other people includes a paragraph praising a Salem man. Christoper Dorner, who says he's declaring war on what he calls a corrupt agency, says he was wrongly fired in 2008. He is beleived to be somewhere near Bear Lake east of Los Angeles.
His 11-thousand word manifesto has been printed in part by the Los Angeles Times and says
"James Usera, great friend, attorney, father, husband and the most cynical/blatant/politically incorrect friend a man can have. Best quality about you in college and now is that you never sugar coated the truth. I will miss our political discussions that always turned argumentative. Thanks for introducing me to outdoor sports like fishing, hunting, mudding, and also respect for land and resources. Us city boys don't get out much like you Alaskans. You even introduced me to PBR. A beer, that when you are a poor college student is completely acceptable to get buzzed off of. I'm sorry I'll never get to go on that moose and bear hunt with you. I love you bro."
Usera tells our news partner, KGW NW News Channel 8 he is shocked and dumbfounded to be mentioned in the manifesto. He says his experience with Dorner was overwhelmingly positive and he experienced no indication of violence or aggressiveness.
