jesse jackson & christopher dorner*Reverend Jesse Jackson has written an open letter to Christopher Dorner urging him to turn himself in to several LA community leaders.

Dorner is the subject of a massive manhunt in Los Angeles’ Big Bear Lake area that has officers from multiple agencies searching through snowy mountains in 12-hour shifts. He is wanted in connection with a double-homicide, as well as three police officer shootings, one of which was fatal.

Read Jackson’s plea below:

Dear Christopher Dorner,

I understand your feelings of hurt and pain. I make this plea to you to stop spreading the pain, the hurt, and the fear. Please stop. Don’t take any more lives.

Christopher, your mother is distraught and deeply concerned for your safety. There are many good and credible people in Los Angeles who will help you. Danny J. Bakewell Sr. (The Los Angeles Sentinel’s Executive Publisher/CEO),

Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Kenneth Ulmer and Rev. Charles Singleton are all individuals I know personally. I promise that they will gladly receive you.

I will do whatever I can do for you without hesitation. Please contact me through Danny Bakewell at the L.A. Sentinel at 323-299-3800

Reverend Jesse L. Jackson Sr.
