Christopher Jordan Dorner's infamous manifesto identifies around 40 Southern California law enforcement officers he believes have wronged him. Indeed, those passages burn most of the rambling post's 6,000 words. But Dorner also cites films, TV shows, celebrities, athletes and newsmen he likes, including Anderson Cooper, who confirmed via Twitter Thursday that the triple-homicide suspect sent him a bullet hole-filled LAPD coin. Um . . . what?

CHRIS DORNER DISLIKES*
*based on an uncut version of his manifesto released by the hacktivist group Anonymous.
"You're a vile and inhumane
piece of shit. You never even showed 30 seconds of empathy for the
children, teachers, and families of Sandy Hook. You deflected any type
of blame/responsibility and directed it toward the influence of movies
and the media. You are a failure of a human being. May all of your
immediate and distant family die horrific deaths in front of you."
"Revoke the citizenship of Fareed Zakaria and deport him. I've never
heard a positive word about America or its interest from his mouth,
Prop 8 supporters
"Why the fuck do you care who your neighbor marries. Hypocritical pieces of shit."
Westboro Baptist Church members
"May you all burn slowly in a fire, not from smoke inhalation, but from the flames and only the flames." [Reporter note: Guess whose funeral is going to get picketed . . .]
"I have no problem sharing the road with you. But, at least go
the fucking speed limit posted or get off the road!!! That is a feasible
request. Livestrong you fraudulent assholes."
Cardinal Roger Mahoney
"You are in essence a predator yourself as you enabled your subordinates
to molest multiple children in the church over many decades. May you die
a long and slow painful death."
"If you continuously followed me
while I was walking at dusk/night I would confront you as well. Too bad
Trayvon didn't smash your skull completely open, Zim. While Trayvon's
body erodes to bones 6 feet under, Zimmerman has put on no less than 40
pounds while out on bail. Zimmerman was arrested for battery on a Peace
officer and avoided jail/prison because he completed a diversion
program. Thats a history of being an asshole. Zimmerman couldn't get
hired by a LE agency because of poor credit/and a history of
violence/restraining orders with women. So what does he do? Designate
himself, neighborhood watch captain and make complaints to his city
council about the horrible work ethic and laziness of the officers
patrolling his neighborhood. Good one Zim. How classy that your father
attempts to use his veterans status "disabled veteran" during your bail
hearing but doesn't state what his disability percentage is. Prior
service personnel know it can be 5% disability to 100%. You and your
attorneys always avoid mentioning your fathers occupation as a
magistrate/judge because I'm sure he's utilized his position to get you
out of way more jams then the public has discovered and that your family
is not indigent. Oh, tell your wife to stop perjuring herself in court."

"It's kind of sad I won't be around to view and enjoy The Hangover III. What an awesome trilogy. Todd Phillips, don't make anymore Hangovers after the third, takes away the originality of its foundation.
World War Z
The Walking Dead
"Season 3 (second half) looked intriguing."
"Damn, gonna miss shark week."
"Mr. Vice President, do your due diligence when formulating a concise and permanent national AWB plan. Future generations of Americans depend on your plan and advisement to the president. I've always been a fan of yours and consider you one of the few genuine and charismatic politicians. Damn, sounds like an oxymoron calling you an honest politician. It's the truth."
"You'll make one hell of a president in 2016. Much like your husband, Bill, you will be one of the greatest. Look at 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. Look after Bill. He was always my favorite President. Chelsea grew up to be one hell of an attractive woman. No disrespect to her husband."
Gov. Chris Christie.
"What can I say? You're the only person I would like to see in the White House in 2016 other than Hillary. You're America's no shit taking uncle. Do one thing for your wife, kids, and supporters. Start walking at night and eat a little less, not a lot less, just a little. We want to see you around for a long time. Your leadership is greatly needed."
News anchors and personalities
"Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite's lead. I hold many of you in the same regard as Tom Brokaw and the late Peter Jennings. Cooper, stop nagging and berating your guest, they're your (guest). Mr. Scarborough, we met at McGuire's pub in P-cola in 2002 when I was stationed there. It was an honor conversing with you about politics, family, and life."
Pat Harvey (again)
"I've always thought you carried yourself professionally and
personally the way a strong black woman should. Your articulation and
speech is second to none. You are the epitome of a journalist/anchor.
You are America."
"You're a talented and charismatic journalist. Stop with all the talk show shenanigans and get back to your core of reporting. Your future is brighter than most."
"Give Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien
and Visa card. Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners
have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you
are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and
clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with
you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws but you must understand that
your critics will always have in the back of their mind that you are
native to a country that we won our sovereignty from while using
firearms as a last resort in defense and you come from a country that
has no legal private ownership of firearms. That is disheartening to
American gun owners and rightfully so."
Jeffrey Toobin and David Gergen
"You are political geniuses and modern
scholars. Hopefully Toobin is nominated for the Supreme Court and
implements some damn common sense and reasoning instead of partisan
bickering. But in true Toobin fashion, we all know he would not accept
"Never mute your facts and
personal opinions. You are one of the few media personalities who speak
the truth, even when the truth is not popular. I will miss listening to
"Your effin awesome. For years I enjoyed your show."
George H.W. Bush
"They never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country."
Gen. David Petraeus
"You made a mistake that the majority of men make once, twice, or unfortunately many times in a lifetime. You are human. You thought with your penis. It's okay.I personally believe you should have never resigned and told your critics to shove it. You only answer to two people regarding the affair, your wife and children, period. I hope you return to government service to your country as it is visibly in your DNA."
Gen. Colin Powell
"Your book My American Journey solidified my decision to join the military after college. I had always intended to serve, but your book and journey motivated me. You are an inspiration to all Americans and influenced me greatly.
"Continue your excellent contribution to entertaining America and bringing the human factor to entertainment. 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."
"I really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again and the game. You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be 'Tebowing' when you reach your next team. I have faith in you. Get out of that circus they call the Jets and away from the reality TV star, Rex Ryan, and Mark Rapist Sanchez. [Reporter's note: add another dislike, Mark Rapist Sanchez.]
"You impressed me in Inglorious Basterds. After viewing Django Unchained, I was sold. I have come to the conclusion that you are well on your way to becoming one of the greats if not already and show glimpses of Daniel Day Lewis and Morgan Freeman-esque type qualities of greatness. Trust me when I say that you will be one of the greatest ever."
Various female sports and entertainment celebs
"Jennifer Beals, Serena Williams, Grae Drake, Lisa Nicole-Carson, Diana Taurasi, N'bushe Wright, Brenda Villa, Kate Winslet, Ashley Graham, Erika Christensen, Gabrielle Union, Isabella Soprano, Zain Verjee, Tamron Hall, Gina Carano, America Ferrara, Giana Michaels, Nene, Natalie Portman, Queen Latifah, Michelle Rodriguez, Anjelah Johnson, Kelly Clarkson, Nora Jones, Laura Prepon, Margaret Cho, and Rutina Wesley, you are THE MOST beautiful women on this planet, period. Never settle, professionally or personally."
Dave Brubeck's "Take Five"
"The greatest piece of music ever, period."
"Hanz Zimmer, William Bell, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bob Marley, Sam Cooke, Metallica, Rob Zombie, Nora Jones, Marvin Gaye,Jay-Z, and the King (Louis Armstrong) are musical prodigies."
"You're a modern renaissance man who epitomizes the saying 'too cool for school.'"
"Larry David, Kevin Hart, the late Patrice Oneal, Lisa Lampanelli, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Louis CK, Dave Chapelle, Jon Stewart, Wanda Sykes, Dennis Miller, and Jeff Ross are pure geniuses. I'm a big fan of all of your work. As a child my mom caught me watching Def Jam comedy at midnight when I should have been asleep. Instead of scolding me, the next night she let me stay up late and watch George Carlin, Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor comedy specials with her for hours. My sides were sore for days."
Larry David (again)
"I agree. 72-82 degrees is way too hot in a residence. 68 degrees is perfect."
Anonymous (the movement)
"You are hated, vilified, and considered an enemy to the state. I personally view you as a culture and a necessity that brings truth to a cloaked world. Forge ahead!"
"You're effin awesome."
Women in combat
"I wish all of you who attempt to pursue combat occupational roles the greatest success in completing, graduating, and qualifying in their respective schools/courses. Many want to see you fail. Remember, everyone of you is a pioneer. There was a time when they didn't allow blacks to fight the good fight. This is your civil rights. Don't quit!!!"
Gay service member's spouses
"It's time . . . to utilize the same benefits that all heterosexual dependents are eligible for. Medical, Dental, Tricare, Deers, SGLI, BX, Commissary, Milstar, MWR, etc. Flag officers, lets be honest. You can't really give a valid argument to as why gays shouldn't be eligible as every month a new state enacts laws that allow same sex marriage."
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. 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."
Mr. Bill Cosby
"You are a reasonable and talented man who has spoken the truth of the cultural anomalies within the black communities that need to change now. The black communities' resentment toward you is because they don't like hearing the truth or having their clear and evident dirty laundry aired to the nation. The problem is, the country is not blind nor dumb. They believe we are animals. Do not mute your unvarnished truthful speech or moral compass. Blacks must strive for more in life than bling, hoes, and cars. The current culture is an epidemic that leaves them with no discernible future. They're suffocating and don't even know it. MLK Jr. Would be mortified at what he worked so hard for in our acceptance as equal beings and how unfortunately we stopped progressing and began digressing. Chicago's youth violence is a prime example of how our black communities values have declined. We can not address this nation's intolerant issues until we address our own communities morality issues first. Accountability."
