A third African American with experience at the LAPD has come out to express empathy with Christopher Dorner’s charges of cop racism.
Not only that but Brian Bentley, who wrote about his experience on the job in One Time: The Story of a South Los Angeles Police Officer, says he knew three other cops who had manifestos of their own:
He says in a statement that he expected to see a black cop blow his top sooner than later:
It took longer than I thought it would for something like this to happen.
The 49-year-old, like others who have spoken out on the topic of racism inside the LAPD, said he does not condone Dorner’s alleged actions — killing the daughter of an an ex-department captain and her fiance and fatally wounding two on-duty officers.
But he empathizes with Dorner’s experience at the department: “I lived it,” he says.
