Christopher Dorner has found a fan in Ab-Soul. Dorner, wanted for killing three people, has been seeking revenge on the Los Angeles Police Department, with no one aware of what his next move will be.
The former officer began his killing spree on Super Bowl Sunday, shooting the daughter of a retired police captain, and her fiancé. A day later he took on a few cops, one of which was killed.
Going on the run last week, Dorner posted a manifesto unveiling shady practices and racism on the force, words which moved Ab to show his support.
As the manhunt continued as far north as the San Bernardino Mountains, late Thursday, Interscope Records rapper Ab-Soul posted a photo defending the fugitive on his Instagram page, quoting Dorner’s 11,400-word manifesto, in which he outlines plans to kill law enforcement officers and their family members.
“This was a necessary evil,” Ab-Soul posted, quoting Dorner’s manifesto, and adding his own comment: “God Bless You Sir.”
So far, the post has received more than 3,200 likes and 500 comments, many supporting the statements.
One commenter calling themselves Popsapien referred to Dorner as “The BLACK RAMBO” and another, Gnodiaz replied: “Everyone else [is] misinformed idiots. He killed officers as a statement because the system he worked in was corrupt and they discharged him [from] attempting to reveal how corrupt it was.”
Ab-Soul and his manager did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
Police in California have launched a massive manhunt for Dorner. After releasing his license plate number to the media, Dorner ditched the vehicle by setting it on fire. He remains at large.
