FTA:
Later in the news conference, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck clarified: "For those of you with questions about how the reward works: The reward is for the capture and the conviction."

That reward was never in jeopardy of being paid out, and those doners knew it.

Obviously they were never going to pay out. They never intended on capturing Dorner.

I wonder if they still would have tipped the police off had they known there was no reward?
 
2013-03-27 07:10:42 AM
This is amazing. LAPD looked terrible during the Dorner manhunt and subsequent slaying, and now they endeavor to look worse by weaseling out of paying the reward? Yes, they deliberately stated the conditions of the reward in a way that gave them an easy out, but at the same time, this action will further make the LAPD look corrupt, just as Dorner claimed they were.

He may have died, but I think Dorner's point is being made for him by the very people he sought to bring down.

Figured that's what it was.

That's why you only snitch if they're wanted (waaaaanted) dead or alive.
 
2013-03-27 09:50:39 AM
Dorner's methods were wrong, but his allegations are proving to be correct.
 
2013-03-27 10:09:35 AM
Snitches get bupkis?  Doesn't rhyme.
 
2013-03-27 10:11:28 AM
Good way to ensure you get ignored the next time you offer a reward.  Brilliant.

I read the first half of your post and, in my head, started singing the song...I then started reading the second half of your post and was quite pleased.
 
2013-03-27 10:13:40 AM
So basically if you get a giant reward posted for your arrest it is basically a green light to the police to shoot on site.  Good to know.
 
2013-03-27 10:13:46 AM
They are not replacing those poor women's truck they shot up, either.

What's the LAPD have to do with this story?  City of Riverside and "two dozen groups and organizations" are involved.  The reward language was from the LA mayor.

I wonder if the claimant(s) of the reward can find a lawyer to discover if there were actual early discussions and plans to set fire to the house he was in, a side-consequence then being a non-payout.

And as mentioned above me, Dorners claimed justification for everything was that the LAPD were a bunch of weasly backstabbers and here they are being, well, backstabbing and weasly.
 
2013-03-27 10:20:15 AM
Yeah, I think it's shiatty, but you also have to be some kind of stupid if you really thought you were actually going to get a windfall out of the deal.
 
2013-03-27 10:21:13 AM
Anyone surprised by this was probably just as surprised the 16,000 other times jurisdictions have refused to pay out, and will continue to be.

// also, the "not replacing the truck they shot up" is dickery of the highest order
// and anyone who read Dorner's manifesto and took it as anything other than paranoid ramblings likely agrees with his opinions (if not his means)
// no one should approve of those means, but I suppose I can understand the anger if I squint real hard
 
2013-03-27 10:22:44 AM
I'm pretty sure the internet lawyers here on Fark and other sites had this called; in the thread announcing the reward most of us argued it would never be paid out; since "Capture" and "conviction" were not in the top ten most likely outcomes when you have cops out for blood.
 
2013-03-27 10:23:50 AM
The reward is for the capture and the conviction.

Well then, they'll just have to try and convict Dorner.

Out of curiosity, is there any precedence for that in California (or outside of Europe for that matter)?

The blind, deaf and dumb all called it when it was offered. The more astounding fact was that someone thought they'd actually pay.

Yeah, if I put out a reward for my lost dog and you bring me a pile of ashes...ain't happenin' captain.
 
2013-03-27 10:52:12 AM
Yeah, I saw this coming. Pulling this trick helps plant the seeds for the next Dorner, and getting help from the public will be an exercise in futility...
 
2013-03-27 10:54:50 AM
Just like those half court shots. They always find some reason or technicality so they don't have to pay.

Probably a Mexican gang leader keeping his underling around after finding him stealing. "Bet you wish you hadn't cut my stuff eh Jose? What's that, you crying? Maggots? What's that in your eyes?"

Doesn't really matter since they're getting sued back to the stone age for that anyway.

So after a few years and costly litigation, the two women will get a check for the value of the truck PLUS a generous settlement for having been shot at (paid for by the taxpayers, natch)? Hooray.

// I bet they wouldn't have sued if the LAPD wrote them a farking $20k check in the first place
// well, I guess the taxpayers would foot the bill anyway, but it'll be a higher bill now

This is more like you putting up a reward, me telling you "your dog is right over there", then you set fire to your dog and refuse to pay me because the dog died in the fire.

So LAPD puts out a reward for information leading to someone's capture and arrest. The information pans out, but they murder the guy (which is what they wanted to do anyway) instead of capturing him so... HA! We don't have to pay!

Yeah............disband the LAPD kthx.

Sure about that? Last week the lawyer for the women was on the John and Ken show and said the LAPD had come to an agreement with them and they'd be getting their truck.

It wasn't the LAPD that shot them in the back as they were approaching the house delivering newspapers.

You must have them confused with some other innocent women shot in the back by the LAPD.

/they were offered a new truck within hours, but their lawyer laughed at the attempt to brush off another attempted killing for $40k

I only get my news here.  If it has not been posted with a snarky headline or painful pun, I know nothing of it.

mcreadyblue: they were offered a new truck within hours, but their lawyer laughed at the attempt to brush off another attempted killing for $40k


That, plus the LAPD called it a "gift", which meant that a newspaper delivery-woman was on the hook for paying the gift tax (45% or am I wrong?) on a brand-new truck. Oh, you mean you can shoot up my truck and then offer me a "gift" that costs me half my annual salary to take legal possession of (tax money that goes right back to the police department)?

WOW I MUST HAVE WON THE LOTTERY

// sorry, not the LAPD
// I get my keystone cop departments all mixed up

After a couple airings of The Kardashians and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child, the sheeple will forget.

Niiice reference, I feel smart for getting it.

Now to promptly feel like a dumbass and write out some reviews... (getting free stuff that sucks and figuring out how to review it without insulting the giver sucks... that being said, I have mastered the "objective" review style)
 
2013-03-27 12:21:33 PM
Just about everyone in this thread needs to go back and RTFA.
1) It is some donors that are pulling out, not the cops.
2) The last sentence says there will still be over a million bucks to pay out.
 
2013-03-27 12:26:01 PM
Is he really dead? Did they show us the body?

After a quick TinEye and Wikipedia search, I have now learned about another interesting chapter of the Catholic Church's history.  So thanks for that.

You got to love this line..

"Dorner committed suicide inside a burning cabin near Big Bear after a gun battle with authorities on Feb. 12"

yea.. suicide..
