Christopher Dorner
SAN ANTONIO -

A former Los Angeles police officer who is the focus of an extensive manhunt mentioned San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro in a manifesto.

The lengthy writing by Christopher Dorner blamed racism and corruption within the LAPD, from which he was fired, for his “last resort” to clear his name using “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare.”

Dorner didn’t just take issue with the police department. He addressed President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, offering political advice and praise. He also wrote Hillary Clinton would “make one hell of a president in 2016.”

“Look at (Julian) Castro in San Antonio as a running mate or possible secretary of state. He’s (good people) and I have faith and confidence in him,” Dorner wrote.

On Sunday, The city of Los Angeles offered a $1 million reward for help catching Dorner. The search is considered one of the largest in the history of Southern California, spanning from Orange County to the Mexican border.
