LOMPOC, Calif.- A Lompoc police captain is listed in Christopher Dorner's manifesto, putting the department on high alert.
Former Los Angeles police officer and military veteran, Christopher Dorner, has threatened warfare against his former colleagues and so far, three people are dead and several others are injured in this crime spree.
His 17-page online manifesto, addressed to America titled '"last resort" hits close to home for Lompoc Police Captain Donald Deming.
"We were notified yesterday afternoon, late in the afternoon, of this person, Dorner, down in the LA area that referenced Deming in a manifesto," said Police Chief Larry Ralston, Lompoc Police Department.
Captain Deming is a five-year veteran with the Lompoc Police Department. Prior to working in Lompoc, Deming worked as a sergeant for 20 years at the Los Angeles Police Department, where he made contact professionally with Dorner.
"Captain Deming was put on notice and we have been providing safety and security for he and his family," said Ralston.
In Dorner's manifesto, he mentions Deming: Contact Sgt. Donald Deming ,(now a Captain at Lompoc PD), Sgt. Thaddeus Faulk, and Sgt. Ed Clark. All will state that my report writing was impeccable. I will tell you this, I always type my reports because I have messy handwriting/penmanship.
This comes after Dorner states the LAPD "attempted to paint him as an officer who could not write reports."
"We're just anticipating LAPD will take care of this problem soon," said Ralston.
Captain Deming is not speaking with the media, or has yet to make any comment about this.
