Noted crazyperson Charlie Sheen was noted in the online manifesto of noted crazyperson Christopher Dorner. “Charlie Sheen, you're effin awesome,” Dorner wrote. The former police officer who threatened to "wage war" on the LAPD and is wanted for multiple murders, also praised Michelle Obama, Anthony Bourdain, and other celebrities in his manifesto. Now, Sheen has responded to Dorner with a video posted on TMZ.
In Sheen's video, he addresses Dorner
: "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."
In related news, the two female newspaper delivery persons mistakenly shot by LAPD without warning in the Dorner manhunt will get a new truck.
Margie Carranza, 47, and her mom, Emma Hernandez, 71, "were delivering newspapers in Torrance early Thursday when LAPD officers riddled their blue Toyota Tacoma with bullets," reports the Los Angeles Times.
"Hernandez was shot twice in the back, and Carranza sustained minor injuries from broken glass."
Oh, but you should see the truck.
