Dozens of protesters gathered outside the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters Saturday in support of Christopher Dorner, a fired cop who is suspected of killing four people, including two policemen.
“How the police handled this — they were the judge, the jury and the executioner,” Michael Nam told The Los Angeles Times. He held a sign picturing a tombstone engulfed in flames reading, “RIP Habeas Corpus.”
“As an American citizen, you have the right to a trial and due process by law,” he added.
Police said Mr. Dorner died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after a standoff with police in Big Bear, Calif., on Tuesday.
Occupy Los Angeles also has spoken out in solidarity with the alleged cop killer. The group posted a photo to its official Facebook page Wednesday showing Mr. Dorner and a caption reading, “Rest in power Chris Dorner. Assassinated by the police for trying to expose LAPD corruption.”
Occupy LA has nearly 56,000 supporters.
