LOS ANGELES – “Anger Management” star Charlie Sheen released an online video Saturday urging an ex-cop accused of three killings to call him, after the actor was named in the man’s chilling online manifesto.

Police are hunting for Christopher Dorner, a 33-year-old disgruntled former LA Police Department officer who threatened to go on a murder spree against police and their families to avenge his sacking five years ago.

In a rambling online statement — in which Dorner threatened “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against the LAPD — he at one point describes Sheen as “effin’ awesome.”

Sheen — who was fired from the hit US sitcom “Two and a Half Men” in 2011 and has a long history of hard partying and scandal — addressed Dorner directly in a brief video posted at

“Christopher Dorner? Charlie Sheen,” the actor says. “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.”

Dorner, who police say is “armed and extremely dangerous,” is suspected of killing a couple on February 3 and then ambushing two policemen early Thursday, killing one. He also injured another officer in a separate incident.

    I’m convince that Chris Dorner is telling the truth. That he was maltreated, maligned, ignored and then sacked when he badmouth LAPD’s malpractices. There are truths about his gripes, was not heard to explained his side that LAPD is rotten to the core but instead summarily fired. He doesn’t care if he dies and his conviction is strong to prove his point. He’s fed-up and angry to get even. In the end, He might even kill himself and will not surrender alive. All he wants is fairness and transparency.

       So what if he was maltreated, maligned and ignored? He have no right to take anybody’s life. What exactly did he achieve by killing these people, you tell me? He is a sociopath and doesn’t deserve to live. There are other ways to address his issues and obviously murdering innocent people is not one of them. Stop giving stupid excuses to this coward murderer. If I were him I’ll put this to end by killing himself. What a pathetic scumbag!

      If he’s fed-up with the LAPD, his actions should not have to involve innocents. Its the same with the incident where HK tourists were taken hostage. Had a beef with the police and took it out on innocent and unarmed victims.

      It doesn’t only show him as petty, but a coward for not facing his true enemies.

        You should walk a mile in another man’s shoes before deciding he is petty and a coward. How do you know three cops did not come to kill him?
