The childhood Christian elementary school in Norwalk where wanted killer Chris Dorner attended and listed in his now famous “manifesto” was closed for safety concerns on Thursday, Los Cerritos Community Newspaper can confirm.

A spokeswoman, who did not want to be publicly named, told LCCN that Norwalk Christian School, located on the 11000 block of Pioneer Boulevard was indeed “closed” on Thursday, and it was not clear when it would be reopened.

A female employee of the school confirmed in a phone interview that Dorner had attended school there as a child, but that “no one here who currently works here remembers him.”

“We are calling all of our parents and telling them not to come to school today,” the spokeswoman said.  School officials did not want to elaborate on the situation.

Chris Dorner, the “Most Wanted Man” in California if not America after going on a killing spree during the past week grew up here in Cerritos, Pico Rivera, attended a private Norwalk religious school and has challenged news reporters to “investigate every location I resided and growing up.”

Los Cerritos Community Newspaper is Chris Dorner’s “hometown community newspaper,” and on Thursday the publication launched an intense look into his upbringing here in the greater Southeast Los Angeles County area by contacting friends, and the schools in which he claims to have attended as a child.

“Journalist, I want you to investigate every location I resided in growing up. Find any incidents where I was ever accused of being a bully. You won’t, because it doesn’t exist. It’s not in my DNA,” Dorner said in his “manifesto” that was obtained by LCCN and other news agencies late Wednesday night.

“I was the only black kid in each of my elementary school classes from first grade to seventh grade in junior high and any instances where I was disciplined for fighting was in response to fellow students provoking common childhood schoolyard fights, or calling me a n***** or other derogatory racial names. I grew up in neighborhoods where blacks make up less than Dorner stated.

“My first recollection of racism was in the first grade at Norwalk Christian elementary school in Norwalk, CA. A fellow student, *** *******  if I can recall, called me a n***** on the playground. My response was swift and non-lethal. I struck him fast and hard with a punch an kick. He cried and reported it to a teacher. The teacher reported it to the principal. The principal swatted Jim for using a derogatory word toward me. He then for some unknown reason swatted me for striking Jim in response to him calling me a nigger. He stated as good Christians we are to turn the other cheek as Jesus did,” Dorner lamented in his writtings.

“Problem is, I’m not a ******** Christian and that old book, made of fiction and limited non-fiction, called the bible, never once stated Jesus was called a nigger. How dare you swat me for standing up for my rights for demanding that I be treated as an equal human being.”

“That day I made a life decision that i will not tolerate racial derogatory terms spoken to me. Unfortunately I was swatted multiple times for the same exact reason up until junior high. Terminating me for telling the truth of a Caucasian officer kicking a mentally ill man is disgusting. Don’t ever call me a f***** bully.”

“I want all journalist to utilize every source you have that specializes in collections for your reports. With the discovery and evidence available you will see the truth. Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That’s what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name.

Below is a list of locations where I resided from childhood to adulthood. Cerritos, CA, Pico Rivera, CA, La Palma, CA, Thousand Oaks, CA, Cedar City, UT, Pensacola, FL, Enid, OK, Yorba Linda, CA and Las Vegas, NV.

    Well. No wonder he is how he is right now. He doesn’t believe in the bible. And other non-believers too also lash out and “blame God” for not stopping this. People have free will and this is why people do the things they do. If this guy believed and was truly innocent or ever doing any bad then he wouldn’t have killed people or even hold a grudge if he believed in God’s word.

    • Ron Vacancia says:

      You don’t get it, do you?
      You christian fools are the exact reason this is happening. Not GOD. YOU. You are stupid, hypocritical, perverts, racist(all slavemasters were bible bangers). Your fake and hateful, racist religion is dying and you will now pay for what you have done for CENTURIES, you ignorant dummy. You will wish Satan existed after regular folks get done with you.

  • Sax Redland says:

    Los Cerritos News was rather inconsistent in the redaction of the name the boy who called Chris Dorner a racial epithet. It is redacted in one section, then it appears as “Jim” in the next.

    The “N” word is redacted when it is first mentioned, then it appears twice in full print. Be consistent in the the use of the word. Either have it appear as it did originally in his manifesto or completely edit it out.

  • Martin Rogers says:

    I’m not sure this man Chris is the real bad guy; his probable death will galvanize this man has a hero. Killing bad cops in L.A. is somewhat acceptable to the L.A. crowd. This makes L.A. home for reality thinkers. Sometimes people get what they deserve, and in this case it looks racial. That is unfortunate.

  • Nay says:

    I went to elementary school with Chris for a few years. I cant even remember where anymore. It was either at Cerritos Christian School or Nazarene Christian school and was only for a year or two.

    Obviously people change but as a kid I remember as the same big, smily kid he portrays in a lot of his photos. I remember him being one of the biggest kids in the classroom, but also just a nice kid. He was a “gentle giant” and never used his size to physically harm or threaten anybody.

  • Ron Vacancia says:

    I agree with the other poster. I read his FB rant, and he sounded 100 times more rational than the mainstream media and corrupt cops would have you believe. Sounded to me like he had plenty of sound reasoning to be very angry. He was certainly wronged in a way most minority men can relate to. However, killing someone’s family is overboard and thats where he loses my empathy.
