The Dodgers have reportedly pitched in money in order to contribute to the $1 million reward for information which leads to the capture of fugitive Christopher Dorner as reported by the Los Angeles Times.
The Dodgers have confirmed their contribution, but they did not comment any further. The Dodgers along with AEG were two of the corporations amongst 29 donors who are helping with the cause. Most of the funding for the reward is coming from police and law enforcement agencies.
The manhunt for Chris Dorner is extremely large in scope. The ex-Los Angeles Police Department officer is accused of killing a couple in Irvine and a Riverside police officer. His angst and reasons for the murders are outlined in a lengthy manifesto which he posted online. Dorner is seeking revenge for being terminated from the LAPD in 2009 after he reported another officer of police brutality.
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said:
“For those of you that question how so much money was put together: it was amazingly, amazingly easy. When we reached out to members of this community, they gave immediately.”
