"When the vehicles collided, Perdue's air bag went off, blocking the view of the driver, and one officer fired three rounds."

This is a bald faced lie.  Airbags can't deploy and remain inflated. That is only something you see in movies for dramatic or comedic effect.  Airbags inflate almost instantly and deflate almost as fast. They have holes the size of half-dollars in the back of the bag.

Dorner's manifesto, as disturbing as it was, does make some sense. What in the hell is going on with the LAPD? "Hey, it's two chicks in a pick-up truck - Dorner's dressed like two chicks! Shoot 'em!" "Hey, it's a skinny white guy in a pick-up truck - Dorner's dressed like a skinny surfer! Shoot 'em!"

Perhaps someone should be less worried about Dorner and more worried about what's going on in the LAPD. It's almost as if the LAPD wants to ensure Dorner never makes it to trial.

I don't condone any of the violence brought up in this whole issue, but after reading his manifesto, you have to hope that this brings about a huge amount of culture change in the LAPD and police departments in general.  If not to eliminate senior officers' entitlements and lack of oversight, at least in how they deal with the public.  The utter callousness he mentions about "body pictures" and deaths from crime meaning nothing but overtime to officers should incite rage in the public.

If his manifesto is to be believed, every citizen should be pushing for change.  Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if after this someone could win the mayor's job solely on an LAPD reform platform.

Of course in the real world, any organization (not just police) dealing with a formerly internal problem that has spilled out to the real world would probably just close ranks and bring organizational xenophobia to batshiat crazy levels, much like the LAPD has done.

When there are never, and I mean never, any consequences for your actions there are no longer any inhibitions to antisocial  behavior, including murder. That's why people become cops. They've been scared of consequences their whole lives and have found a safe place to be.

I hope that this attitude on their part changes. Police are important to the functioning of a civilized society but a group of armed, 100% self interested thugs, is the beginning of anarchy. No wonder no one wants to give up their guns.

SubBass49: I think the sad truth is that they don't train and don't give a rat's ass where their bullets go. Sad. "To protect and serve." used to mean something.

Don't doubt your story, but someone else pointed out that the bullet distribution on the p/u was the result of 7 different LEOs firing...



Yep.

7 different LEOs firing at a vehicle that was moving AWAY from them (they shot the rear) and that they ASSUMED MIGHT have been being DRIVEN by Dorner - yet NONE of the rounds struck the DRIVER but TWO struck the 71 year old woman in the (PASSENGER SIDE?) back seat.

SEVEN cops pump out +- 50 rounds and NONE of them hit the "target" (driver).

That's some fine marksmanship there, Lou.

Not to mention that the truck was the wrong make and model
Not to mention that the truck was the wrong color
Not to mention that the truck was moving AWAY from them and thus posed NO direct threat to their safety WHATSOEVER
Not to mention that the occupants of said truck did not match the description of the "suspect" - wrong sex, wrong age, wrong race...

This is NOT a simple farkup by one jumpy cop. It is a reflection on every cop in the LAPD - and a reeking dirty diaper around the neck of ever LEO in the nation.

The really cool part is that if ANYONE takes the blame / faces criminal charges for this insanity, it will be DORNER.

Frank N Stein: This is why only cops should have guns. The professionalism and the marksmanship is tagged throughout that vehicle. Only cops, with their intense training, are capable of the safe operation of firearms.


Sarcasm received load and clear.

Back in the day, 40 years ago, I worked for a company that provided revolvers (yep, revolvers) and marksmanship training with them to police departments. I have never been, and have never wanted to be, a LEO.

Not many took the training seriously. Most took the 3 or 5 day course as a paid play day. Lots of horseplay,etc. My boss was a former, very experienced FBI agent that would put a stop to that crap fast. Give them the lecture about their lives depending on this training. Most would just roll their eyes and nap. Some took the training seriously and we spent our time working with those guys.

The "pattern" exhibited on that truck is pretty representative of the level of skill my students exhibited then before class started. This is exaggerated now by  the current issuance of large capacity automatics with horrible trigger pulls to metro PD's . And their apparent lack of training despite the lip service about "highly trained" by the brass.

These officers were excited but not under fire. If the picture represents the officers' braced firing position behind the cruiser's door, (all taped off as a crime scene with spent casings marked on the ground just in front of the cruiser, so it likely is the case) at a range of about 6 yards, there should have been a ragged hole in the window containing every shot fired by the officers. If they were so overwrought, behind cover, wearing an armor vest, that this is the best that they can shoot while under stress then they have no business carrying a gun.

I think the sad truth is that they don't train and don't give a rat's ass where their bullets go. Sad. "To protect and serve." used to mean something.

I'm still waiting for a logical explanation of how the police actions in CA are anything less than attempted murder.  I'm all for Dorner taking a bullet, but the police in these last two incidents weren't shooting at Dorner.  In fact, they didn't know WHO they were shooting at.  Their goal was to kill the people in the vehicles, regardless of actual identity.

Yes, stop those dangerous actions of the driver. Like driving along not having done anything.

Yeah, that sounds like attempted murder to me. We can't see if the driver is dead yet, so unload on him.

And just as with the two women, if Dorner had been in that vehicle, he would have been finished off by those thugs.

Dorner looks more and more credible every day he goes undetected while the LAPD trips all over itself and uses excessive force on innocents.  Dorner went on this rampage because he believes he was fired in retribution for exposing excessive force within the LAPD.  And every day the LAPD is proving his point that the use of excessive force is rampant within the department.

The absurdity has gotten to the point that I will suggest that not only should the folks falsely targeted should get paid but the officers involved should have to pay a deductible for the damages.  That deductible should be their pension funds.  Use that money before using taxpayer money.  It would help a lot of cities fix their budgets if the officers all around this country who caused their city to be sued for dumb garbage like this had to lose their pensions to pay for the damage they caused.  I really don't care if they only have a few dollars to retire on because they shot some 70 year old woman for looking like a man, years before.

Lost Thought 00: There is also a 0% chance that Dorner is still in or around LA. He likely isn't in CA anymore, either.


Hard to tell, and it really depends on how serious he is. If he's going full throttle on his little counter insurgency campaign, then it makes total sense for him to lay low for a few days while the various police departments run themselves ragged doing overtime and chasing down every small lead. They've got literally hundreds of officers just pulling guard duty for the LAPD brass. Their schedules are not designed for this.

As soon as everyone's frazzled and ready to ease off a bit, bang - hit a target that they weren't expecting. Kick the whole thing back into high gear. All the while, the public is increasingly convinced that the cops are a bunch of incompetent bullies.

Warthog: I would gladly trade places with Mr. Perdue.  For the small cost of a concussion and a soiled pair of boxers, he's going to get an all expense paid vacation from work, a new truck, a six or perhaps seven figure tax free retirement fund, and likely a get-out-of-jail-free card good in the city of Torrance for the rest of his life.


Wouldn't count on that. Payouts are often surprisingly small when the cops are involved. I was the victim of a case of mistaken-identity-by-police. For an injury that left me with a permanent disability, I was given 20k. Small compensation for having to give up my career dreams.

So, yeah. Hope this guy fares better.

Krieghund: The Sybarite: or, just maybe, he had another vehicle waiting there for him to use.

It's possible. I find it unlikely though, since the police know and have accounted for any vehicles he had legally. If he had an illegal vehicle, why was he driving the truck that everyone was looking for?

And don't forget the fiasco where he tried to steal the boat in San Diego. If he had an escape plan that involved heading through San Diego, it's unlikely he'd also have a vehicle 3-4 hours away in Big Bear.


The San Diego thing confuses me, I tend to think it's either not true or a decoy.  Even if it was his original plan he probably had back up plans with back up plans.  I think he's in LA area still laying low waiting till the LAPD lower their guard and then attacks again causing even more panic.  I may be giving him more credit than he deserves....

He does have a sense of humor and I like what he is showing of his personality, other then possibly being a farking cold-blooded murder.

If I had to choose a side, police running around shooting random Japanese pickup drivers and shooting at them, not being able to hit the broadside of a barn while on a manhunt hit job, I guess Dorner is more likeable in PR sense.

What is impressive is Dorner almost seemed to know that after his little manifesto, that the LAPD (and other areas) would f**king loose it and become their own worst enemy.

No, it's not.  They fired their weapons on individuals that they had not identified as wanted suspects.  They just fired on a vehicle (and were so bad at it they missed, despite cops being expected and trained to hit what they shoot at and only shoot at what needs to be shot).  They were out-of-control, badge-wearing thugs who had no interest in justice.  They just wanted to kill and apparently didn't care who because they didn't bother to identify who they were shooting at.  If they had killed somebody, 20 years would be about right.  But since they didn't, 8 years should be okay... but tack on 4 more because they did it under the auspices of the Police for 12 and that's about right in this case.

Does putting 80lb glossy paper in the finicky printer kill somebody?  Yes?  Then by all means, lock him up!

Along with the authority to carry a weapon at work is the responsibility to use it correctly.  If you shrug off misuse as "just a mistake" enough times, you've also eroded the authority those officers should have.  When the misuse is egregious, and possibly fatal, as in shooting at vehicles that somewhat resemble your target vehicle before you identify or even view the driver, you put every single person in the area at risk.  Light up your cop lights, pull the guy over.  If he's your bad guy he'll run, which is dangerous of course, but so is shooting at a vehicle driven by somebody you haven't even seen.  This is farked up on so many levels.

Plus, if you carry a gun and decide to use it, shouldn't you hit your target a couple of times?  How many rounds were fired in both incidents and only 2 hit an old lady's back, and that didn't kill her.  shiat, don't come policing around me!  Hell, all of the targets were in the cabs of pickups, one behind a deflated airbag!  How hard is that?  I can't wait for the public, on-air testimony of these dumb-ass 'peace officers' explaining why unloading their weapons was the right idea.

Most of it actually...after the mayor spoke, the LAPD chief confirmed that much.  Said it came from police organizations all over the state...

They'll never have to pay a dime. The money is only paid for information leading to Dorner's arrest, and they have no intention of arresting him.

With what you know regarding this case, what leads you to believe that this man would be unaware of the weather conditions in and around the San Berbard mountain area that he would drive all the way up there, torch his truck, apparently the same truck the police are still shooting at whenever they see it, and then trek off into the forest to freeze to death? Doesn't really fit what we know the facts to be, does it?
And if he burned his truck on Friday why were cops shooting and ramming the same type of truck he had on Saturday?

Of course he's never going to make it to trial.  He's a highly trained (police and military) killer with nothing to loose amd a stated goal of killing lots of people... and he's had a complete mental break.  He will be shot on sight, because he has to be.

38 blue & whites stood and stared at me.

Face of death, then I cocked my pump
I'm a officer on the trigger,

Just layin' for a reason to pull on you,
any punk motherfarker that gets in my way
I'm insane, and my homeboy's death made me this way
But then we got it, his truck had been spotted-
Down at Big bear, on fire in a parking lot, it
seemed his footprints trailed away into the snow...
Trail went cold in more ways than one, you know?
Let's peel his cap back.
Let's peel his cap back.
Let's peel his cap back
Then, all of a sudden, a pickup truck caught my eye.
My rage exploded and I felt that bastard had to die.
I tasted blood as our bullets scattered down the street.
We stopped that pickup, and turned it onto plastered meat.

So you're equating a screw up at work by clogging a crappy printer with a screw up at work that could leave several innocents dead?  Firing a gun doesn't automatically kill somebody, but the likelihood that it will is millions of times morelikely than farking up office supplies.  Cops who fire on unidentified people because they're in somewhat similar vehicles have no excuse, not even "but there's a guy who's targeting cops".  If that scares you, go work somewhere else.  Don't abrogate your constitutional duty because you're about to shiat your pants.  You're a farkING COP, it's your job to identify the right guy and deal with him appropriately.  You're supposed to be trained to do exactly that!  How did the first set of cops stop him and let him go, but the second decided to ram his car?  That's some quality communication between field units and the home office when all they have is radios, cell phones, and internet-connected in-dash computers.  I'll bet that the "split seconds available to them" was more like a few minutes as they responded to reports of a stopped pickup.  These cops are farkups (not just LAPD, apparently), and while the Dorner asshole is in no way justified in his actions, he's at least shown a light on the asshole farkups.

At least these cops were too inept to actually hit anybody fatally.  So we got that going for us.

A cop buddy of mine told me about 20 years ago that the cops from the generation before him almost always went into the job for the power and authority.  He even joked that they were identifiable by big, mountain-gorilla guts and mustaches.  His generation generally went into the cop profession to help people (he was a journalist first, but a journalist sees the bad stuff and can't do anything about it like a cop can).  But this is a suburb of Kansas City, and nothing like LA or Chicago where, he said, almost nobody wants to be a cop except for the power/authority freaks.  We can attrition-out of the power freaks, given time, but can LA?

And who thinks that the LAPD re-opening his grievance case will produce anything worthwhile?  It should be the California Bureau of Investigation (or whatever they're BI is called) or the FBI if the Fed can be given jurisdiction.  If the LAPD (and maybe surrounding PDs as well) are even a little bit as dysfunctional, corrupt, and dangerous as he claims, they can't be the ones to do the investigation.  Don't get me wrong, his exposure of the Departments' possible screwedupness is good, but he's done it in about the worst possible way.  No excusing his choice of methods to alert us.

I don't know what Dorner's history or military training is, but he could go to ground for a week or two, pop up and kill a cop or two, then drop out again.  He'd probably have to have help to do that, but it fits his Robin Hood role.  If he decides to give himself up, which is only likely so he can have his literal day in court, he can only do it by contacting an attorney who will be by his side with cameras and journalists to make sure he doesn't 'suicide' and makes it to court.  I hope he does that before he kills again.

Most of it actually...after the mayor spoke, the LAPD chief confirmed that much.  Said it came from police organizations all over the state...

They'll never have to pay a dime. The money is only paid for information leading to Dorner's arrest, and they have no intention of arresting him.

To all those who think that this show of violence and terrorism on the part of the cops will change anything: you are idiots. It will change things alright; this type of random, psychotic violence on the part of the cops will be justified, legitimized, and will become standard procedure all over the country.

Mistymtnhop: Krieghund:
My guess is he's either dead from hypothermia or a self inflicted bullet to the head, but they won't find the body till spring. And that may very well have been his intention.


With what you know regarding this case, what leads you to believe that this man would be unaware of the weather conditions in and around the San Berbard mountain area that he would drive all the way up there, torch his truck, apparently the same truck the police are still shooting at whenever they see it, and then trek off into the forest to freeze to death? Doesn't really fit what we know the facts to be, does it?
And if he burned his truck on Friday why were cops shooting and ramming the same type of truck he had on Saturday?


You need a scorecard to follow this story but: (1) Dorner was perfectly aware of the weather conditions in the S.B. Mts, he had survival gear in his truck. But news stories in the past day or two have added the information that his truck, off on a Forest Service fire road, turned out to have a broken axle which very much suggests he was forced to stop short of wherever he was headed. Meaning he had to improvise with whatever he could carry. (2) The LA Times story in TFA is describing something that happened on Thursday, long before Dorner's burnt truck was discovered.

I'm betting that Krieghund will turn out to be right. Though if Dorner decided to take himself out of the game, I'd bet that he did so in the most out-of-the-way place he could find, figuring the search for him would have to continue basically forever.

Fail in Human Form: Krieghund: Despite subby's headline, this wasn't LAPD. It was the Torrance Police Department.

And it's old news.

I came here hoping there was a lead on a vehicle Dorner is using. I haven't heard anything about vehicles missing from the Big Bear area, which leads me to suspect he's still up there.

My guess is he's either dead from hypothermia or a self inflicted bullet to the head, but they won't find the body till spring. And that may very well have been his intention.

They're reducing the search in Big Bear, adding additional men to the security details on the named targets, and soon to be offering a reward for information leading to his capture/kill.  In other words... they have no farking clue where he is.


So much this. This is exactly what I thought when I saw they found the burned truck. Dorner isn't some stupid meth-head running from the police, he's smart and he's thought this out, he didn't just snap and go on a rampage. He drove to Big Bear, burned his truck, then walked a mile to his other vehicle. He's been out of there for days.

This is just insane.  I have no hate for the police and I'm certain there are plenty of good officers but there is just no way to justify this.  It sends the message that if you are driving a truck similar to what Dorner had and a police officer spots you, you will probably be shot at.

It's been a while since I watched the Shield, but didn't they do something like this in one of the seasons?  I'm sure I remember an officer of the farm getting injured/killed and the strike team basically going all out to kill the perp before he could be brought to justice.  And causing plenty of collateral damage along the way.

Perhaps the LAPD just wanted to prove that Vic Mackey is nothing compared to them.

- Aztecs blow out Fresno State
- Padres fan-fest
- Chinese new year
- Some Bruce Springsteen story

- Beach Boys pushing historic designation for a surf spot

... a Torrance police cruiser slammed into his pickup and officers opened fire; none of the bullets struck Perdue.
His pickup, police later explained, matched the description of the one belonging to Christopher Jordan Dorner - the ex-cop who has evaded authorities after allegedly killing three and wounding two more. But the pickups were different makes and colors. And Perdue looks nothing like Dorner: He's several inches shorter and about a hundred pounds lighter. And Perdue is white; Dorner is black.



If I lived anywhere in the LA area and had a pickup truck, I think I'd stay away from it until this is all over.

Nah, they're prepared for that.  That's a typical criminal who they'd probably find due to his lack of planning.  This is a man who went to war and is prepared.  This is not something they're ready for, they've had every police agency looking for him, they had the NG looking in Big Bear, they used drones with FLIR, ect.  Some of us tried to tell people that before in threads on another topic.  Here is a practical example.
