Being that it is the LAPD involved, he may well have been killed some time ago, and the whole event staged.

At least he didn’t shoot some poor lady trying to survivr by delivering newspapers at the age of 71.

Dorner is not running around shooting just anyone. He is making a Statement and the public does not need to be afraid of him. Anyone on his list should get their life in order. He is coming for you!!!

“He’s not going to surround anyone.” Well, that may be so. But he has turned life into a stressful, combat-like situation for a large number of people in the meantime.

Dorner’s story is complex and not easily compared to other people who have killed. He went from military training in the battlefield, to law enforcement in LA.

Do not say the chickens have come home to roost, say the soldiers come home to wage war.
War is first waged in the mind. Even the most powerful militaries employ shock and awe.

There is nothing heroic about shooting innocent people. In fact, it is cowardly. Dorner needs to be rounded up so he can face the law.

Any person who would plot, stalk, ambush and murder 3 people in cold blood is insane, among other things. Too much information now coming out about Dorner’s past, while in the military and just afterward, indicates that this utterly self-absorbed psychotic delusional thug ought never have been hired by the LAPD.

After reading how LAP officers opened fire on a 71 year old woman and her daughter in a truck that was the wrong color and make and rammed and shot at a baggage handler; this amounts to egregious police incompetence and highlights very poor training. After all, the people of LA have every right to expect professional and competent police officers. These police officers exhibit a dangerous inability to: inhibit their impulsiveness and poor visual scanning and discrimination. The only thing that saved these women and the baggage handler was that these police officers were poor shots. As for the LAPD Chief offering a new truck; that’s just plain insulting. Police officers who shot should be removed and the LAPD sued. LAPD poses as much of a risk to society as Dorner!

Two of the people he killed did nothing except have the misfortune of being related to someone he hated. The people who are calling him a hero are just as sick as he is. Do you think your own kids would deserve to die if they decided to become a cop or married someone who was a cop? He got fired because there was obviously something wrong with him mentally, you don’t go from normal nice guy to psycho killer in a day.

Great. So now there’s a bounty on his head.
What he has done is horrible, unthinkable. But really, they have a one million dollar price on his head. I guess he’s guilty, before being proved innocent. Maybe that is what everyone is afraid of.

Take the million and have new and trained police. One million for this guy, something is not right here how many police have been killed before this[which is sad] and nothing done, how many people are killed each day/year from gang’s and Nothing is done to get rid of the gang’s how many die because of the sale of drugs and nothing is done to stop it and they say they don’t have the money because of budget cuts but yet they offer one million for this guy, something is rotten and it is not just the shooter.Give the million to the people the police shot at, because it seems they are too emotional and can not be professional in dealing with a crisis so the one million will get them help from the public, what does that tell one.

Funny, a clerk in a bodega in South Central gets killed and the cops don’t investigate yet alone offer a reward. Of course, they won’t have to pay it. Their actions so far show that “arresting” him couldn’t be farther from their minds. He’ll be “shot will resisting arrest.”

Based on the story to date, there is no evidence that the cops intend to capture Dorn.

Dorn will be shot on sight.

I hope the authorities offer this reward to police as well as the general public. With that kind of incentive, law enforcement might be inclined to actually capture the man as opposed to trying to simply execute him on the spot (which is what they’ve attempted unsuccessfully so far). I have no particular concern for Dorner, but this would make the general public a lot safer from law enforcement.

This is becoming a perfect example proving that an organization looks to its own survival above all else. He went after cops and their families. Look at the response. One million dollar reward and they are moving Heaven and Earth to find this guy, utilizing hundreds of police resources in the process.

I have a question for all of you. Do any of you out there think for one New York second that they would do any fraction of the above if you were his target?

The article reads, “Beck announced on Saturday a reopening of the inquiry to “reassure the public that their police department is transparent and fair.”‘

Well, now I know why I previously thought this “melodramatic” story stunk to high heaven!

Robertbill says, “Being that it is the LAPD involved, he may well have been killed some time ago, and the whole event staged.”

Good observation, and when Christopher Dorner is cornered he’ll conveniently commit “suicide”!

The sociopaths couldn’t find a picture of Christopher Dorner looking deranged either, or they would have used that photo. What we do have is that smiling face of a former Naval officer that speaks volumes of the man not being a cold-blooded murderer.

“February 7

At approximately 1:30 am on February 7, two LAPD officers were driving to a protection detail where they were assigned as security for one of the officers potentially targeted by Dorner, when they were flagged down by a civilian.[9] The person who flagged them down reported seeing a man matching Dorner’s description at a gas station in Corona.[9] The officers investigated the report, and they were following a pickup truck when the driver stopped, got out, and fired a rifle at them, grazing the head of one officer.[9]” — WikiPedia, 2013 Southern California shootings.

Does the above sequence of events make sense to you? Dorner got out of his pickup truck with a rifle? And he’s still alive? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. Where was the police backup request before Dorner got out of his pickup truck to shot at the lone police cruiser? Also, grazing the head of one police officer means pursuit has ceased?

Also, when a bullet is fired the police know exactly where the discharge took place (through Direction Finding technology). So how does Dormer evacuate the area after he grazes the police officer?

Well, looks like I found enough holes in this cheap dime’s-worth piece of fiction to put the LAPD in the hot seat, and I only started researching this story one hour ago!

Not that Dorner’s doing the right thing – but honestly, I believe him over the claims of the LAPD and such. He apparently got railroaded on an attempted cover up, and this is what it comes to.

It’s not really even unusually now for a crappy cop to go kicking mentally ill people. Not that ALL cops are bad, just seemingly the majority. But the sad part is that – hearing of a cop tasing, beating, or kicking on someone who has a medical issue – isn’t a surprise anymore.

I mean – the story of Frank Serpico is an example and that was many years ago.. wonder how much worse it is not? Frank Serpico made claim after claim – and nothing was done of those either. Only reason it’s so clear is how the ‘situation’ ended. It’s a good book and/or movie to experience if you haven’t already – quite an insight to police forces…

Maybe if they had honor they would have taken the complaint he filed seriously over the assault on a handicapped person by his training officer. Or the testimony of witnesses, Then the performance of his lawyer, need I say more? You P.O.S that cover up crimes of the police and scumbag lawyers deserve what you get.
