With a $1-million reward out for Christopher Dorner, hundreds of tipsters have called police.  One such call over the weekend led police to evacuate and search large hardware store in the San Fernando Valley, but no evidence was found that Dorner had ever been there. Also over the weekend, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck announced his department would review the firing of Christopher Dorner from the LAPD.  Why did Beck make this decision? What do you think of the racial aspect of the current Dorner case?

Also, how should media cover Dorner's manifesto?
