Report: Police to review ex-LA cop's racism accusations

The hunt for a former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three killings continues a day after the police chief ordered a review of the disciplinary case that led to his sacking, the Associated Press is reporting.

Officials will re-examine the allegations by 33-year-old Christopher Dorner, that his law enforcement career was undone by racist colleagues, police chief Charlie Beck announced.

Mr Beck stressed that he was ordering a review of his 2007 case because he takes the racism allegations seriously.

I do this not to appease a murderer. I do it to reassure the public that their police department is transparent and fair in all the things we do.

– Charlie Beck, police chief
