Before his shooting spree ... Christopher Dorner sent CNN anchor Anderson Cooper a parcel, containing a note, a DVD, and a coin riddled with bullet holes -- so says Cooper.

Cooper just tweeted about the package, saying he only learned today the package was sent to him.

According to CNN, the package was delivered to Cooper's assistant on February 1st -- and contained a hand-labeled DVD with a sticky note that read "I never lied." Wolf Blitzer said the note appeared to refer to when Dorner was fired from the LAPD in 2008.

It also contained a coin wrapped in duct tape, which was inscribed with "Thanks but no thanks, Will Bratton." Bratton served as the LAPD Chief until 2009. The coin was also inscribed with the initials "IMOA," which typically stands for "Imagine a More Open America."

The coin -- reportedly given by the LAPD as a souvenir -- was riddled with bullet holes.

As we reported, Dorner posted a rambling message on his Facebook shortly before his alleged shooting spree, in which he's accused of killing three people, including one police officer.

In the message, Dorner includes Anderson Cooper in a list of journalists whom he admires, saying, "Keep up the great work."

I dont think the coin is inscribed with IMOA. I think it is 1 M.O.A. which stands for one minute of angle, a gun reference meaning a tight grouping.

It's not IMOA. It's 1 MOA.

MOA is a shooters term that stands for Minute of Angle. 1 MOA is 1/60...th of 1 degree.

The coin was probably some award or something given out for being accurate in his shooting.

lMOA, stands for "one minute of angle", a term for accuracy. It's a marksmanship term. The guy can shoot, be careful.

Imagine a More Open America is not what IMOA is referencing in this case. I'm pretty sure it was meant to read 1 MOA, which in shooting/military lingo stands for 1 Minute of Angle. 1 MOA is used as a measure of accuracy with shooters and represents 1 inch at 100 yards. In other words, he shot that 1" diameter coin 5-6 times (it appears that some of his shots were overlapping)

It's not that people support Dorner's act of killing, its that people
identify with injustice and being screwed over by the system that is
meant to ensure justice (the system that is instead set up in large part
to maintain the status quo), and/or being screwed over in the work
place....(i.e. taking away people's income for stupid reasons).....people's support of him to some extent is an extension of the
Occupy movement...don't get it twisted or pretend not to understand...if
you cant understand you must have a charmed life and never suffered any injustice...

Not only a black serial killer in the making, but a cop killer and ex-cop as well.
At least this one can shoot.
