Dorner’s Last Stand
In an inevitable turn of events, it appears that someone on the user-generated online community of 4chan has created a game based on the last living moments of Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD officer whose recent killing spree just came to a tragic end.
The first-person shooter casts the player as Dorner and places him in the cabin where he was eventually surrounded by police and burned. Dorner actually died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The disturbing game is modeled after Doom and its ultimate goal is… you guessed it… to kill cops. A picture of Charlie Sheen appears along one wall of the cabin. And just outside its burning walls is a boss enemy with the face of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s Terminator.
Incidentally, Dorner gains energy by eating fried chicken along the way. And all the cops are white, so this obviously isn’t the most racially sensitive game, either.
Despite all this, Dorner is still referred to as a “true American hero” on the game’s launch screen. And this weekend also saw protesters rally at LAPD headquarters in support of Dorner’s claims of corruption against his former department. People just don’t know what to make of this story yet. And when people are uncertain, they can do strange things.
Like making sick and demented video games, for instance.
