So the moral of the story is "Don't help the LAPD catch cop killers."?

Satanic_Hamster: That's just a reporter speculating.  Any statements from the LAPD or City that supports this?

Thing is, if they do this "too often," they'll have trouble getting cooperation in the future.

Not really, here's the quote from the dude who is demanding the $1million, as well as his picture, and two supporting news articles about it:

"Someone owes me $1 million," Rick Heltebrake, the man whom Christopher Dorner carjacked just before his shoot-out with police on Tuesday,   tells the Los Angeles Times.

"It was my call that led the officers to him," he said. Then he paused. "I know there were two other women involved and I don't mind parting it three ways."

Wait, you meant statements supporting the cops aren't going to pay:

Neiman said it was not clear who, if anyone, might claim the reward if the body is confirmed to be that of Dorner.

But the money shot has been this quote, reported widely raising the question can an Officer be an official source of information regarding the division of the reward, or is it better to wait for the lawyers to parse the doubletalk of spokespersons?

- Officials are still considering how, and if, to distribute the reward. So far, it's looking unlikely.  "There was no capture and no conviction. It's kind of a no-brainer," LAPD Officer Alex Martinez  told CBS News.

And from the CBS news site:

-  Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's spokesman, Peter Sanders, said Wednesday it's too early in the investigation to determine whether anyone would deserve the award. LAPD Officer Alex Martinez says it's unlikely anyone can claim it because the reward referred to Dorner's capture and conviction.

I guess you could say Dorner WAS convicted. He didn't have a trial and all, but he was convicted and sentenced to death. Right? Pay da man his reward.

Trance354: meh, he's dead, LAPD is still a corrupt, lying, bigoted asshat organization.  If you don't think the cops are out to get you for every possible dime they can take from fines and seizures, you're living in a dream world.  The million will be lost to red tape and end up lining someone's pocket, making a very nice retirement, even if they are getting a pension, because as you know, more money is always better than less money.  The guiding principle for the jurisdictions has been thus ever since the drug war turned into a for-profit venture, with the local counties getting to keep half of everything they take.  If you think all the drugs are being burned, I'd love to come visit, because those must be some killer shrooms you are on.

And peeps think they are at the top of the food chain.
Time to become something more that a profit bearing animal.
Peeps, you are supposed to be in charge.

Snarfangel: GORDON: LAPD just keeps improving their image.

If the two maids are lucky white, the LAPD will give them a new truck.

If they are unlucky brown in any way, it will be after they fill their old truck with bullet holes.

GORDON: LAPD just keeps improving their image.

Now they are murderers, liars, AND they don't honor their promises.

"I have altered the deal.  Pray that I do not alter it further..."

spentshells: Krieghund: The other point everyone is forgetting is it isn't LAPD's money. It's donations.

I don't know how it works, but I bet the donors had lawyers make sure the money goes back to them if the reward isn't claimed.
So LAPD has zero incentive to stiff anyone.

Police union(s) did in fact donate... much like you said get your facts straight

LAPD is a police department, not a police union. You seem very confused.
2013-02-14 05:07:23 PM  
The police never had any intention to capture Dorner.  They were intent on a revenge killing.
2013-02-14 06:03:37 PM  

Lexx: Wow. You know...I'm starting to really appreciate the Dorner sympathizers. I can't condone what he did, but damn, the LAPD really seems to be just a large, corrupt, gang.

There are four gangs operating in LA The Bloods. The Crips. LAPD and the LA Sheriff's Department.

firefly212: Good luck catching the next cop killer when everyone knows your group is just a bunch of rampaging psychos AND the reward is BS.

Quite frankly, anyone with 1/2 a brain cell who happened to be keeping up with this situation had already assumed that nobody would ever collect the money.  There's no way the police ever planned to pay out and no way they planned to capture or convict Dorner.

Most likely, the folks trying to claim it now knew that as well, but are trying to play this thing out just in case.  I mean it doesn't hurt to try, does it?
2013-02-14 07:40:14 PM  
NO ONE ever gets reward money.  It's a scam.  They always have loopholes.  I helped catch and convict a 3-striker that should have brought me two rewards.  I couldn't get either reward due to such loopholes and cons.  They strung me along 3 years while waiting for the trial and conviction.

/ scam

If Dorner really wanted to make a statement, he would have walked out with his hands in the air yelling 'Don't shoot!' - and let the LAPD shoot him to death on live TV, thus proving his points - because you know they would have turned him to swiss cheese the moment he walked out the door a la South Park 'He's Comin' RIght For Us!'
