Anderson Cooper

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."

The Trial Judge (Judge David P. Yaffe - who is known to be a bit unpredictable, to put it mildly; now retired), found that he could not determine whether or not Officer Evans kicked Getler, but still would not overturn LAPD's firing of Dorner....this is non-sensical since LAPD's reasoning for wanting to fire Dorner was their claim that Dorner lied about Officer Evans kicking Getler....If Judge Yaffe couldn't figure out whether or not Evans kicked Getler (i.e. Judge Yaffe did not conclusively find that Officer Evans did not kick Getler) (it seems like Evans did do the kicking in my opinion), then how can Judge Yaffe/the Trial Court uphold LAPD's decision to fire Dorner?? Also, how can LAPD claim Dorner was lying, where Evans and Dorner were the only witnesses in aposition to view any "kicking" (since other witnesses werent in a position to view any "kicking"), and where Getler&his father both corroborate the "kicking"?? Getler may not be the perfect witness because of his mental issue(s), but he still was able to come off as credible, and Getler's father came off as very credible. Seeking vindication from a higher Court(i.e. the CA Court of Appeals), is often futile, because not only are the standards higher, &only a few issues can be appealed, but also, even the higher courts do not have a lot of interest in justice or ruffling feathers, short of a case that is likely to get media coverage

Cooper is a shill...He faked at least one broadcast claiming he was somewhere but was really behind a blue screen. Never trust the mainstream media, including cooper.

How weird would an Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow newscast be?

Now we know this is a false flag, because Cooper, a known CIA frontman, has involved himself in the story. The same can be said for Piers Morgan, another CIA frontman, who is virtually unknown to the average person, being mentioned in the (probably fake) manifesto/story.

Give me a break, gubmint.

Anderson Cooper got a plea for help on Friday and the man started killing on Sunday. Looks like the man thought Cooper could help but Cooper dropped the ball. Wonder if things would have turned out different if Cooper had helped. Dude had faith in somebody that dissed him. That's sad. I'm surprised at Cooper I thought he was top of the line, but hen again NOBODY ID PERFECT.
