A former Los Angeles police officer who remains on the run after allegedly killing three people threatened to kill lesbian law enforcement officials in a rambling manifesto.

“Those lesbian officers in supervising positions who go to work, day in and day out, with the sole intent of attempting to prove your misandrist authority (not feminism) to degrade male officers,” Christopher Dorner wrote in a message investigators said he posted to his Facebook page. “You are a high value target.”

Dorner, 33, also singled out the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., in his manifesto. He specifically mentioned comedians Margaret Cho and Wanda Sykes, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and other journalists and celebrities.

“Ellen Degeneres, continue your excellent contribution to entertaining America and bringing the human factor to entertainment,” Dorner wrote. “You changed the perception of your gay community and how we as Americans view the LGBT community. I congratulate you on your success and opening my eyes as a young adult, and my generation to the fact that you are know different from us other than who you choose to love. Oh, and you Prop 8 supporters, why the fuck do you care who your neighbor marries. Hypocritical pieces of shit.”

Dorner also referenced the controversy that erupted last summer after Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy spoke out against same-sex marriage during an interview.

“LGBT community and supporters, the same way you have the right to voice your opinion on acceptance of gay marriage, Chick-fil-A has a right to voice their beliefs as well,” he wrote. “That’s what makes America so great. Freedom of expression. Don’t be assholes and boycott/degrade their business and customers who patronize the locations. They make some damn good chicken! Vandalizing (graffiti) their locations does not help any cause.”

Authorities maintain Dorner’s murder spree began on Sunday night when he allegedly shot Monica Quan, an assistant women’s basketball coach at California State University-Fullerton, and her finace to death inside the garage of their Orange County condominium. The Associated Press and other media outlets have reported Quan’s father, a former LAPD captain, represented Dorner during a disciplinary hearing before the department fired him in September 2008.

Dorner allegedly killed a Riverside police officer and critically wounded his partner early Thursday morning during an ambush at an intersection. Authorities said he also shot an LAPD officer in the same area roughly 10 minutes later.

LAPD officers a few hours later mistakenly shot two women in Torrance who were delivering newspapers from a vehicle that matched the description of the truck authorities say belongs to Dorner—vandals targeted a Chick-fil-A in the same Los Angeles suburb in August.

The Los Angeles Times reported Torrance police officers opened fire on a second vehicle that matched the description of Dorner’s truck less than 30 minutes later.

A massive manhunt for Dorner continues across Southern California.
