Online chatter continues over Dorner rampage

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The death of ex-Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner in a fiery standoff with authorities has done little to quell online chatter over a man whose rampage against law enforcement created a small but vocal following.

A Mexican crooner sings a traditional ballad titled "El Matapolicias," or "The Police Killer," in a video on Facebook with lyrics paying homage to Dorner's campaign of revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department.

A video game titled "Christopher Dorner's Last Stand Survival Game" on YouTube arms the player with a handgun to shoot out from the window of a wooden cabin into a snowy, pine-covered terrain.

While most supporters don't condone killing people, many saw him as an outlaw hero who raged against powerful forces. They even questioned whether he really died Tuesday.
