Ex-L.A. cop, murder suspect sent CNN anchor parcel

LOS ANGELES >>  Law enforcement officials are inspecting a package CNN's Anderson Cooper received from a former Los Angeles police officer who allegedly killed three in a shooting spree.

CNN spokeswoman Shimrit Sheetrit said Thursday that a parcel containing a note, a DVD and a bullet hole-riddled memento were sent by Christopher Dorner and addressed to Cooper's office.

LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith says LAPD robbery-homicide detectives will inspect the package for clues.

The package arrived Feb. 1, days before the first two killings Dorner is accused of.

It contained a note on it that read, in part, "I never lied."

Dorner was fired from the LAPD in 2008 for making false statements.

A coin typically given out as a souvenir by the police chief was also in the package, and riddled with bullet holes.

This is such a tragic story. More should be detailed regarding the incident where he allegedly made false statements. A witness claimed another officer kicked the complainant. How did it happen that this particular officer was found to be making a false statement? And what was his role in this whole incident?

Just look on one of the main news webpages, Yahoo, MSN, CNN and they have more detailed articles. Basically there were a number of witnesses who contradicted Dorner's story so it was concluded that he lied. This led to him eventually being fired.
