Given the increasing danger and severity of this tragic situation, this could either be incredibly brave and/or incredible stupid!
But part of us really does think that if ANYONE can stop this madness, it very well may just be the MaSheen!
The case of Christopher Dorner, formerly of the LAPD and U.S. Navy, has gotten progressively more bizarre since he was suspected of shooting three police officers - one of whom died, as well a young couple last weekend - as the wreckage of his car was found yesterday in Big Bear Lake, California!
However, what seems to be garnering most of the public's attention is the manifesto he published on Facebook is his celebrity shout-outs he makes to folks like Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper, and of course, Charlie Sheen, whom he described as "effin' awesome!"
Well, the polarizing Anger Management star is now apparently trying to use his position to help stop any more unncessary deaths or violence, and has released a video to the public, which sources maintain was "on his own" and not "sanctioned by police," in which he urges Dorner to stop!
"Christopher Dorner, this is Charlie Sheen. You mentioned me in your manifesto, so thank you for your kind words. I am urging you to call me. Let's figure out together how to end this thing. Call me. I look forward to talking to you."
We can certainly appreciate the actor's desire to help get this man off the streets and into custody, but frankly, given how unpredictable and erratic he's been since this story broke, we'd be pretty nervous about what would happen if he DID try to get into contact with him!
Eek! We have shivers just thinking about it!
This whole situation has just been so sad. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who's been affected by these tragic, pointless violence, and we hope that authorities are able to locate this clearly-very-ill man and get him the help that he so desperately needs.
