The LAPD may review more than three dozen firings after the incident surrounding Christopher Dorner.

Dorner, dismissed from the department in 2008, made headlines in February for a deadly rampage in revenge for his ousting. But his allegations that the police department is racist and corrupt struck a chord with other fired officers. Forty of them are asking that the LAPD review their cases for wrongful termination.

Joining us for more is Joel Rubin, police reporter for the LA Times.
