Through it all I am still most amazed that police can identify a severely burned out truck, but had issues on multiple occasions identifying undamaged trucks.

Also the statement that still irks me through this all:
"'I do this not to appease a murderer.  I do it to reassure the public that their police department is transparent and fair in all things we do," the chief said in a statement.'

1.  He is not a murderer yet.  Ok well he is (my opinion) but not official yet and it is bad form for any public official to publicly state otherwise prior to a trial.
2.  The police department should not be reviewing the prior case for the public's sake they should be reviewing the prior case FOR THEIR OWN SAKE.
3.  "Fair in all things we do." Yes yes they are.  Such as naming an man, who to this point has been convicted of nothing, a murderer.


The outcome I hope that arises from all of this is Dorner turns himself in some place far from LA and is able to convince someone that there is zero chance of him receiving a fair trial in LA.  That he has some really really farking good lawyer more interested in prestige than money on his side and that at the end of everything he goes to prison and a crap ton of LA cops get fired/end up in prison as a result of it.

I personally disagree with how Dorner has proceeded with things, but I have found the police reaction in Southern California through the course of these events (as well as at a lot of prior events) abhorrent.  I find it ridiculous that not once but twice police have shot up vehicles that not only do not match the description of Dorners truck, but the occupants were no where near Dorner's description, and the end result of all of that will be no major reprimands for the police.  All of those officers SHOULD BE facing charges of attempted murder, because that is what they actually did.  And to anyone that defends the cops for those actions, go fark yourself, police even more so than other gun users should follow one of the primary rules of using firearms CLEARLY IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET BEFORE YOU PULL THE TRIGGER.  If you do not know what you are shooting at then you should not be shooting in the first place.

I don't dislike all police, just those that are doing the exact opposite of their stated jobs.

Odd, isn't it? When you have three murders committed by someone else, they don't publicly announce a million-dollar-bounty for his head him. However, this isn't just some guy. He's a cop, with a lot of information that could make other cops look really, really bad.

The "bounty" is to make the other cops look like they want him alive. That's it.

They've already had two separate "mistaken identity" shootings, because the cops are definitely in a "shoot first, let him cool, then ask questions later" mood. We know they want him dead. They know that, hence this stupid PR stunt. What he needs to do is to walk into the nearest federal building with an FBI office and turn himself in, before some cop gets lucky and blows his damned head off.

Mitrovarr: Chelsea Clinton Is Carrot Top's Lost Twin: Except that we'll never know when Dorner's truck axle broke. That's because Keystone Cops removing the truck from the scene aren't sure if the axle was already broken when they found the truck or if they broke it while removing it from the scene.

Seems like it almost has to be after it burned, doesn't it? I mean, it's a truck, not a covered wagon. When's the last time you heard of a vehicle axle breaking and stranding someone? On the other hand, after a really hot fire, I can totally see it breaking while being towed.


I'm a GM engineer so I guess I'm supposed to hate the Titan, but it isn't a truck that is all that easy to break.  The only two ways I really see it breaking prior to the fire is if there was some kind of encounter (a ramming) by LAPD that we haven't been told about or Dorner was driving the hell out of on the mountain road because he felt he was behind schedule.  It could of course also have failed when he burned it and the gas tank went up or when they yanked it out of there.

It seems like low odds he broke the axle, was stranded, and then left the survival gear behind.  Plus if it is unplanned and you really are stranded on foot, why burn the truck out and risk the fire drawing their attention?  It isn't like they have no clue who you are and purging your DNA out of the interior is ever so important.  They already have all kinds of info on him from when he did his security clearance paperwork and applied to be a cop.

So, I was wondering out loud, "why did Dorner bother setting his truck on fire... it's not like he was concerned about fingerprints..." and my wife pointed out that he heard about the shooting of the two women and the surfer:

Timeline:
Feb. 7: At 5:30 a.m. Officers from the Los Angeles and Torrance police departments each shoot at two pickup trucks they each mistakenly believe is Dorner's, after hearing over their radios that he may be coming their way. Two women are injured in the first shooting.
Feb. 7: About 8:30 a.m., Dorner's burned out truck was found in the area of Forest Road 2N10 and Club View in Big Bear Lake. About 2:30 p.m., deputies were able to confirm the vehicle belonged to Christopher Dorner.

In other words, (i) Dorner has a police scanner, and (ii) he doesn't want innocent people shot.

Cut the conspiracy theories, they've already said they're reopening the investigation.


Speaking of conspiracy theories, it was pointed out on another thread today that by reopening a 5 year old investigation the LAPD can deny any & all FOIA requests on it because it is an "ongoing investigation".

I don't know if that is true or not but if it is, if the LAPD was smart they'd have a couple of reporters from the LA Times & a couple different news stations there with them during the reinvestigation just to head off at the pass any suggestions like I just made.  However given the brilliant way that the LAPD has handled this whole affair so far I'd expect more secret meetings, stonewalling the media, & even more 'don't bring him in alive' orders.

I don't think it's mutually exclusive that he is a crazy murderer OR a guy who knows too much, I think it's both. I think he witnessed things he wasn't psychologically able to handle, when he tried to do something to stop it, they went all Thin Blue Line on him and started persecuting him, which eventually caused him to snap, and when he did so, he didn't do it in a 'good' way, he just had a mental breakdown and became violent and killed innocent people.

So, I don't think he's a saint or a martyr, but I think he did see things the LAPD does not want being made public. And if it was true that he witnessed the killing and coverup of an innocent person, I think a case could be made that it caused PTSD which contributed to his snapping and subsequent killing rampage.

Of course, such a case won't be made for the obvious reasons, but just from how the LAPD is reacting, I think there's a lot of blame to go around in this situation.

There seems to me to be more chances than not he is already dead (likely by his own hand). The truck with a broken axle, ammo and camping gear just points to his planned rampage falling apart. Maybe he is/was uber devious and set this up as a brilliant diversion but that takes a pretty big stretch to buy I think. With the fresh snow and cold temperatures all the heat detecting aircraft in existence won't find a frozen cadaver. Dogs don't do too well when there is a foot of new snow covering any tracks either. With his plans trashed by the breakdown of his truck and the certainty that he is/was a dead man anyway, hiking off into the forest and taking his own life would leave the police hunting for him until the spring thaw, a great FU that will keep the public's eye on the LAPD for some time. That is about as much vengeance as he could hope for after the axle broke.

Never point it at anything you don't want to get shot.

Cops, supposedly there to serve and protect, are supposed to check their targets better at the expense of their own safety for the greater public good. "To Server and Protect" is not small potatoes, it's the job description and your life is supposed to be on the line when necessary to fulfill that role.

----------------------------------------
JungleBoogie: The problem is the manifesto.

The manifesto was too eloquent to ignore. If it were incoherent ramblings, most would be rooting for the LAPD to ventilate him. But... the manifesto was clearly written and compelling. The manifesto put forth a clear picture of an honorably discharged military man who became a cop. And when he tried to do the right thing, was terminated. That's one side of the story but it was clearly and compellingly presented.

As the saying goes, "The penis mightier than the sword."
----------------------------------------
another cultural observer: I'd write about "LA" in my eloquent manifesto and then travel thousands of miles away in the car I'd stashed in the State Park to tear up a community 1,000 miles away from all that crap I talked about in my manifesto, just to get everyone to pay attention.  But then, if I did that, I'd be crazy.  wait....

----------------------------------------

One of the issues is that Dorner admits he was severely depressed and asks for researchers to examine his brain (if possible). And he perceives he had his life taken away from him, with such a blot on his resume as being terminated for lying. Lost the TS/SCI clearance and everything.

Look at the Aaron Swartz case. Here was a kid who thought he was facing the immediate prospect of spending several decades in jail. He too was depressed. BUT, unlike Dorner, he turned his pain and rage inwards and hanged himself. The fellow was the archetypal nerd.

It seems to be a common thing with depression. Losing perspective.

Dorner also comes off as nerdy, from his manifesto (opining about Michelle Obama's bangs, lecturing Anderson Cooper on how to treat guests, and musing about Jeffrey Toobin for the Supreme Court). However, he's actually in a massively powerful body and he's combat trained. He's turned his pain and rage outwards. He sounds like an ITG who could be a forum poster, but he's actually a tough guy IRL.

It's a hell of a thing. Very unfortunate. His slaying of the girl and her fiance and the cop is an unforgivable offense and... it's a hell of a thing. Ultimately, Dorner claims to be doing this to clear his name. But he's stained himself with the killings of the innocent people. I dunno. It's a hell of a thing. Hopefully no one else gets hurt. The manifesto was Dorner's suicide note. I think Dorner will pursue seppuku regardless of how it all turns out.

Very unfortunate. A tragic waste.

Control.

There are many people who have a beef with LAPD - getting people to believe they are winning, but haven't won yet ("we are so close, but we still need your help to finish the job") gives them the image of strength while also giving them the benefit of not being omnipotent.  They look strong, people like to help winners, people also like to help winners not quite there yet, but people don't feel like they have to help people who already won.

If it looked like the LAPD had absolutely zero handle on this, the people who have beef with them might also decide that now is the time to act without fear.  It would also reduce the inclination for people to help.

They might also be trying to deliver a morale message to their own forces, so they aren't actively shooting trucks all over LA in the false belief that they aren't in as much danger as they might be.

He allegedly murdered the daughter of one of his targets to make the guy suffer, and her fiance.  That pushes Dorner out of "antihero" territory and into "delusional villain" territory.  The only thing to hope for is he and the LAPD eat each other alive.

To be honest, he's only considered an "antihero" because many people are fed up with the corruption in law enforcement agencies these days. Nothing about what he's done is even remotely heroic. The absolute best-case scenario for him is that a few specific instances he brought up in his manifesto get investigated... That's not going to change the systemic corruption.

So he's allegedly killed three people and put countless others in danger for what amounts to petty revenge. It's entirely self-interest. He's in it for no one but himself.

It's hard to pick a side in this one. On one side, you have the embodiment of pure evil, and on the other side is a guy getting revenge by killing what some would consider innocents....

When Dorner, a Naval reservist, returned to LAPD after deployment to the Middle East in 2007, a training officer became alarmed by his conduct, which included weeping in a police car and threatening to file a lawsuit against the department, records show.
Six days after being notified in August 2007 that he could be removed from the field, Dorner accused the training officer, Sgt. Teresa Evans, of kicking a severely mentally ill man in the chest and left cheek while handcuffing him during an arrest.
However, his report to internal affairs came two weeks after the arrest, police and court records allege. Civilian and police witnesses said they didn't see Evans kick the man, who had a quarter-inch scratch on his cheek consistent with his fall into a bush. A police review board ruled against Dorner, leading to his dismissal.

Online, Dorner tells a different story. He argues he was "terminated for doing the right thing."

mikaloyd: Thats when a reasonable person calms down for six years and  then starts killing people. Like an hero

There MAY be a bit of a disinformation campaign going on too. Yesterday, I heard CBS radio news report he was "drummed out" (exact words) of the military. I could find no such information on the web. All I could find was that he was honorably discharged.

Many people may hope he was actually set up, it's a common enough fantasy to have raked in millions(if not billions in hollywood).  I'd rather enjoy it if that was the case.

Actually hoping he gets away because of a Belief that he is innocent is another deal entirely, and I hope, somewhat rare. The belief is the qualifier here, though on fark, even people who may seem like this type of person may just indeed be part of the former group, just ill expressed.

My bets are that there is a mixture of fault, as it were.  As other people have stated, he may have seen a lot of bad stuff and snapped.  That's where my money lies.

The manifesto put forth a clear picture of an honorably discharged military man who became a cop. And when he tried to do the right thing, was terminated. That's one side of the story but it was clearly and compellingly presented.

As the saying goes, "The penis mightier than the sword."

The two most plausible theories I've seen so far, one on this thread, are that:

A) He is sufficiently paranoid and convinced of the righteousness of his cause that he believed the LAPD would plant something in his truck to discredit him, so he burned it in order to head off their discovery of a bunch of child porn and meth.
B) He is sufficiently concerned about those he views as innocent bystanders that when he heard that cops were shooting up trucks that looked like his, he wanted to make it known to the world that he wasn't driving it anymore and that they could stop doing that.

Why is "and conviction" a condition for getting paid?

They have openly declared this is their guy.  If you lead them to him, why does what happens after make any difference on whether or not you get paid?

This sounds like yet another LAPD/government trick fark.  You tell them where he is, they go blow him all to hell and then "hey sorry, he was never convicted".

Considering the source, they'd probably turn around and arrest you for not giving him up on your own in the first place.

I'm guessing the "and conviction" is there so you won't kill him.

I like this comment, because unlike other LA Cops, Dorner is particular about who he shoots.

I feel like if they just let him kill the people he's after, we'd all be a lot safer. After all, he has specific targets and no "innocent" people have been hurt by him. With police involvement, three innocent people have been shot at, two hit. We're safer without the manhunt.


Seriously? I am so sick of hearing how he has not killed an innocent person. He has killed THREE innocent people. The daughter had nothing to do with his case, her dad did. The boyfriend made the huge mistake of falling in love with a cops daughter? And then, to top it off, a cop doing his damned job will never see his children grow up because of this clown

He's out there.  He's not in any hurry to make his next move.

With his training, he probably used a time delay fuse and was well out of the area before the truck went up in flames. Why would he set the truck on fire unless he wanted cops to focus their attention to that area?


 Set car on fire. Walk 1 mile to other car.  Drive away.  Meanwhile, leave ID and a wallet 90 miles away.

His point is to obscure where he's at, and where he's going.  I hate to give him credit, but if he's dead from exposure he's got a touch of the Downs.

True, what he's supposed to have done is not "good", but we're not judging his actions, we're judging the effectiveness of his tactics to reach his goals. (with the way you worded that sentence anyhow)

The attention that his writings have garnered is the best he could have realistically hoped for within this time frame.

No evidence.  Didn't the manifesto say something like "I never got to have kids, so I'm coming for yours?"  I think that's compelling circumstance.  I haven't seen or heard about anything in Dorner's manifesto that would imply he's sitting on a secret big enough for dirty cops to murder a cop's daughter just to frame him.

I just read something on another board I frequent regarding this, here is the post.

just heard something interesting on local K-CAL news about the Lowes sighting. I will paraphrase what reporter said. Apparently a customer saw someone who looked like Dorner parking his vehicle --i think a white station wagon---and heading into Lowes. So they emptied the Lowes and that person never came out. So they searched the Lowes with
K-9's and they watched the surveillance videos--and still no Dorner. By then they had run the car registration and found a picture of the owner, who did resemble Dorner. So the look-alike CALLED LE and said that he works nearby the Lowes. BUT HE DOESN'T WANT TO COME OUT AND SPEAK TO THEM. He says he has had bad experiences with LE and does not want to come to pick up his car right now and meet with them. So now what do they do ? Also, he doesn't want to tell them where he works.

You'll also notice where you see the rims as being extra beat up, is actually where the gas tank is located.  The fire would have burned hotter there, and it would have been hottest at the ground, because the fuel actually spills onto the ground during a vehicle fire.

Take a close look at those rims.  If Dorner simply set the truck on fire, yes the tires would have burned off, but how did the bead edge of the rim get like that?  If they got hot enough to somehow melt the rim, the body panel above it wouldn't have survived.  Doesn't that look like the truck ran some distance on bare rims??


You'll also notice where you see the rims as being extra beat up, is actually where the gas tank is located.  The fire would have burned hotter there, and it would have been hottest at the ground, because the fuel actually spills onto the ground during a vehicle fire.

He is assassinating people. One of them a daughter of a person he deemed bad rather than assassinating the bad person. As a punishment I suppose.

I cannot imagine a scenario or rationale where that is justifiable to you.

The United States ordered drone strikes on funerals held for people they thought were terrorists. "He was a bad person, so we're going to attack all his friends and family, because there's probably some bad people among them.

Chelsea Clinton Is Carrot Top's Lost Twin: "Drummed out" is probably too harsh a description. In the Navy officer ranks, either you're promoted or you're out. "Up or Out" is the typical description. Dorner was a LT and was passed over twice for promotion to LCDR. After two passed over promotions, you have to exit the Navy.


This.

Also, keep in mind Dorner was a minority officer in a non-stereotypical career field.  The armed forces in general, and the navy specifically, have been under flack for the lack of diversity in the officer ranks.  While there is no official policy to promote minorities ahead of their peers, there is substantial pressure from high levels to increase diversity in the officer corps.

This would imply that he severely underperformed his peers or was in some other way not promotable.  His actions since discharge might show what the military already knew. This would not prevent an honorable discharge, but his service records might have a few velvet daggers hiding in the performance evaluations.

Killing a cop is ho-hum, but THIS particular killing is making people start to ask questions that the bigshots of LA don't want the peasants to be asking.


Yeah.

Y'know.  At first I bought the party line that Dorner was a crazy renegade.  His letter/manifesto was a little unhinged.  Not seriously so, but not exactly a fine argument.

However, given that one of the main allegations against the LAPD by Dorner was about their brutality. . .which they happily showed in their pursuit of him so far.

Their overall behavior has been increasingly suspicious.  It really does seem like they have no intent on bringing him in alive, whatever he knows, they are scared of it seeing an open court.

His best bet is to contact the FBI, work out some kind of deal.  If he's got any evidence about corruption, he might be able to cut some kind of deal with the Feds.  Even if that's not possible, if he really wants to bring the LAPD down on whatever he knows, he needs to say it on the record in a courtroom, and the only way that's going to happen is if he surrenders. . .to the Feds, not to LAPD (or other local SoCal law enforcement it seems).

Unfortunately you need ID to get into a Federal building, so it's not like he can just walk right in to a Federal courthouse or office building and say "here I am", not without fake ID.

It also just generally adds to the crime lab bill and harassment of law enforcement.  I'm not so sure about the child porn one, because they could always dump it in his hotel room and find it there.  The drugs plant wouldn't be very credible given he was active duty military until recently and the military has drug tests (plus he had to pass them for his clearance).

My pet theory, with no proof, was the Titan was dumped up there before he shot anyone, with a timer wired to a firebomb.  He had to know that truck was instantly hot and Titans aren't that common.  There are likely less than 350,000 Titans on the road right now, which isn't much compared to say the Chevy Impala which sells between 150,000 and 300,000 units per year.  The Titan is a horrible option for avoiding police detection and Dorner likely new that.

Although it did take 15 years for the Unabomber reward to be posted.   The LAPD certainly were quick on the draw (in more ways than one) to offer the same type of reward on someone who appears not to be a threat to anyone but 40 specific people and police officers.

It's only because of the poor marksmanship of the LAPD that the death tally isn't currently 3 on both sides.

For those of you that are rooting for him, get your life together. He killed two people that had nothing to do with anything, they just happened to be related to someone he didn't like. For all he knew she hated her father as much as he did. And the other three cops he shot? Weren't even farking LAPD. They could have been the "small percentage" of good ones. 

This man is unhinged, a murderer and deserves to be brought to justice. LAPD obviously has some major problems but that doesn't mean cops in neighboring cities should be shot to death simply for wearing a badge.


As i have previously pointed out in other threads those are ALLEGED crimes. The only ones they know for sure are the attack on the four cops since they actually had witnesses for those. So technically he can only be called a murderer of one and an ATTEMPTED murderer of three more. Just slightly worse then the area  Police.

DoomPaul: Theaetetus: So, I was wondering out loud, "why did Dorner bother setting his truck on fire... it's not like he was concerned about fingerprints..." and my wife pointed out that he heard about the shooting of the two women and the surfer:

Timeline:
Feb. 7: At 5:30 a.m. Officers from the Los Angeles and Torrance police departments each shoot at two pickup trucks they each mistakenly believe is Dorner's, after hearing over their radios that he may be coming their way. Two women are injured in the first shooting.
Feb. 7: About 8:30 a.m., Dorner's burned out truck was found in the area of Forest Road 2N10 and Club View in Big Bear Lake. About 2:30 p.m., deputies were able to confirm the vehicle belonged to Christopher Dorner.

In other words, (i) Dorner has a police scanner, and (ii) he doesn't want innocent people shot.

I don't think he specifically set his truck on fire for that reason. He wanted police to think he was in the Big Bear area. He could have easily ditched his truck in a lake or a pre-dug ditch and covered it up, parked it in an obscure area, or switched license plates. Instead he chose to do something that would instantly bring attention from nearby people and eventually law enforcement. He had to have had this planned in advance to draw police to the area and concentrate there while he could move to another location(s) more easily.


Except that we'll never know when Dorner's truck axle broke.  That's because Keystone Cops removing the truck from the scene aren't sure if the axle was already broken when they found the truck or if they broke it while removing it from the scene.

maddermaxx: TommyJReed: Given the level of competence shown by the LAPD during this whole fiasco; I'm quite surprised that LL Cool J wasn't gunned down by uniformed officers on the red carpet at the Grammy awards.

He should really hole up at home until this blows over, because he is going to get murdered by a bounty hunter sometime soon.


Going back to Cali?

Dorner had time to set the whole thing up, so he's likely long gone.  A second vehicle, drive down to the coast, hop a small boat and you're in Mexico tomorrow.  Where you probably have a safehouse waiting.

Gurrker: There seems to me to be more chances than not he is already dead (likely by his own hand). The truck with a broken axle, ammo and camping gear just points to his planned rampage falling apart. Maybe he is/was uber devious and set this up as a brilliant diversion but that takes a pretty big stretch to buy I think. With the fresh snow and cold temperatures all the heat detecting aircraft in existence won't find a frozen cadaver. Dogs don't do too well when there is a foot of new snow covering any tracks either. With his plans trashed by the breakdown of his truck and the certainty that he is/was a dead man anyway, hiking off into the forest and taking his own life would leave the police hunting for him until the spring thaw, a great FU that will keep the public's eye on the LAPD for some time. That is about as much vengeance as he could hope for after the axle broke.


Why would he leave his survival gear and weapons behind in the truck though?  If he was going to have to hoof through Big Bear it you'd expect the survival gear to be taken by him.  Given he's planted other false flags (the badge on the sidewalk) and the like, it seems just as credible to say he loaded the truck down to make it look like he was going to pull an Eric Rudolph.

How the hell is anyone going to find him? He's like a master of disguise.


He's probably wearing red lipstick, a wig, and a tracksuit, walking down the street in the middle of Mardi Gras.

He torched his truck in the morning and he had plenty of time to get away.

They saw his footprints and the trail eventually went cold.

He's out there.  He's not in any hurry to make his next move.


With his training, he probably used a time delay fuse and was well out of the area before the truck went up in flames. Why would he set the truck on fire unless he wanted cops to focus their attention to that area?

He's had enough time, he could be in my neighborhood by now.  It would make sense to head to a city with enough people to blend in and the police aren't looking for you.  Going a thousand or so miles would buy some time.


There has to be some kind of time limit where if he can avoid contact with the police for X amount of time, he will reach a point where he cannot be recognized.  Grow out his hair, wait for the news cycle to move on, get some glasses, ear rings, stuff that will make him look different.  Live in an area with plenty of other large black guys, etc.

I would tend to assume there was an alternative means of transportation somewhere near that burned out Nissan on Big Bear and he's moved on, but he might be back once the protective details are gone.  Really now the big question is how patient he is and if he can happily lurk around in some bolthole for months.

This isnt a bribe for you or me or almost anyone else.  This is a bribe for his "accomplices" who they believe are hiding him.  This is rapid desperation and its pretty telling.  They must have absolutely no idea where he is and this leads credence to Dorner's manifesto bragging that they wont be able to find him.

Seriously now, if the US Gov wanted this guy found badly enough, he would be found already.  They find armored car robbers hiding in Kuala Lumpur faster than this.

Give his name to Sallie May and tell them he's behind on his student loan payments. They will find him tommorow.

Tickle Mittens: Popcorn Johnny: How much for a random black dude?

I like this comment, because unlike other LA Cops, Dorner is particular about who he shoots.


I feel like if they just let him kill the people he's after, we'd all be a lot safer. After all, he has specific targets and no "innocent" people have been hurt by him. With police involvement, three innocent people have been shot at, two hit. We're safer without the manhunt.

ecmoRandomNumbers: rev. dave: The LAPD is coming unglued.   From all the way across the country I can tell that this is getting a reaction from them which is out of proportion to what you normally would expect.  They look more like an army than a police force now.

They are so going to out-stupid themselves somehow. I think shooting those two poor women in a truck earlier this week was just a preview.


Not to be a buzzkill, but, they are an army. You're talking about one of the most militarized police forces in the United States, the folks who practically invented SWAT, and they're sure as hell looking forward to shooting this guy before someone in the Justice Department gets his hands on him.

Huh? It's a national event. Nobody can actually own it, and anybody that wants to write about it can do so.

Who owned the rights for any number of hunt for a real life serial killer movies, or events like 9/11 for that matter?
