Mistake Dorner Shooting Officers Will Not Be Fired

Mistake Dorner Shooting Officers Will Not Be Fired

The LAPD won't fire the eight officers who mistakenly fired at two newspaper delivery women during the Christopher Dorner manhunt.

An internal bulletin sent out says the seven officers and one sergeant will be re-trained and eventually returned to their assignments.

Chief Beck said Tuesday the officers could face a wide range of discipline, including termination.

The officers could still face suspensions for the shooting, which Chief Beck decided was out of policy.

California's police officer privacy laws prevent the LAPD from telling the public what - if any - punishment the officers receive.
