Amar'e Stoudemire's literary recommendations may not have the reach of Oprah's Book Club but the New York Knicks forward stuck out his neck by hyping the crazed manifesto of ex-cop turned murderer Christopher Dorner as a "must read." The Knicks star posted a link to the ex-LAPD cop's manifesto on his Twitter page Sunday with the words: "Interesting. This is a must read." Dorner addressed his declaration of war on the LAPD "to America." Interesting. This is a must read !!abclocal.go.com/kabc/feature?s… — Amar'e Stoudemire (@Amareisreal) February 17, 2013 In his disturbing 20-page rant Dorner left on his Facebook page, the fired cop rails against police corruption in the LAPD, and paints himself as victim of racism for reporting a sergeant for brutality and crossing the thin blue line. The disgraced cop killed himself inside a burning cabin on a California mountain after killing four people as revenge and becoming a fugitive for 10 days. Stoudemire wasn't specific on his tweet but some of the player's 806,000 Twitter followers were a little  peeved by his nightstand recommendation. "Really?! A murderer's hateful manifesto is worth reading?" one follower tweeted back. Stoudemire is entitled to his own reading choices but he might want to leave this social media tome on the shelf.
