DOTHAM, Ala. (CBS/AP) — An Alabama police officer who was suspended and placed on probation for Facebook posts about Christopher Dorner is challenging the punishments doled out by department officials.
Dorner, a former officer with the Los Angeles Police Department, is accused of killing four people, including two Southern California officers, before apparently committing suicide in a burning Big Bear cabin in February.
The Dothan Personnel Board, which is expected to take at least two to three weeks to decide what could be a landmark case involving the use of social media by police, held a hearing Thursday in the case of Cpl. Raemonica Carney.
