Skip to comments.Searchers struggle to pick up trail of former Los Angeles cop wanted in killing spree

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. All that was left were footprints leading away from Christopher Dorner's burned-out pickup truck, and an enormous, snow-covered mountain where he could be hiding among the skiers, hundreds of cabins and dense woods.
More than 100 officers, including SWAT teams, were driven in glass-enclosed snow machines and armored personnel carriers to hunt for the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of going on a deadly rampage to get back at those he blamed for ending his police career.

Wasn’t his police career ended before he became a naval officer? That’s what I don’t get.
It’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that he will eat his gun rather than be taken alive.
The only question is: How many more will he take out with him?
I Think he is on special assignment from the Obama administration to further the cause of gun control
“If one fugitive LA LEO... the question becomes how long can US Vets, “survivalists” & “prepper” and other determined 2nd Amendment Patriots, last....”
that young woman and her boyfriend are just collateral damage, per the SLA...
but honestly, he's probably far away and snickering at the cops....
Me thinks he's going to get away, enter "never let a good crisis go to waste" Rhambo.
Seriously, this guy is a a seasoned vet, obama is going to use this to further his marxist agenda (returning Vets are dangerous)...just wait.
He’s likely stalking his next target even as I type this.
If he’s methodical and careful, I foresee many police funerals in the weeks ahead.
If not, then I certainly foresee his funeral in the days ahead. Time will tell.
That thought crossed my mind too.
My ears also perked up at this quote: “On Sunday, police say Dorner shot and killed a couple in a parking garage at their condominium in Irvine. The woman was the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing.”
This is dangerous stuff when the perpetrators start purposely going after the families of the LEOs or Gov’t officials.
I'd say he's in Vegas by now....where most of the town are strangers.
Not unlike how Soetoro,Inc, keeps a bunch of DC pols in line, in my opinion.
That’s the way I read it.
I believe I saw this movie. Wasn’t it called Rambo?
Could be and in the end they will take him out with a drone and a lot of the sheeple will think that is a good thing. We are being conditioned.
Well, he would show up in stark contrast if he were an overweight black NAKED guy in the snow....
When I dress up for freezing weather, there is not a whole heck of a lot of skin showing: Sometimes I dress up like the Michelin Man (with 47 layers of clothes) and you can’t even tell I am a girl, let alone what color....
But I agree with you - He probably isn’t settling permanently there.
They’re going to kill him on-sight; he’s got too much to tell about the internal corruption and crime in LAPD.
He’s gone from Black Bear, waiting with an ambush at a new place of his choosing.
Las Vegas Ron is correct:
“this guy is a a seasoned vet, obama is going to use this to further his marxist agenda (returning Vets are dangerous)...”
Drone strikes would start the very first week.
I suspect he is not within a hundred miles of there right now. He likely put a motorcycle in his truck, and dropped it off a distance away from where he burned the truck, hoofed over to it, and rode away. If he really did a good job, the fire was set with a simple timing device when he was already a goodly distance away.
His best bet is actually to go back to Los Angeles, find a nice foreclosed home among a lot of other foreclosed homes, and set up a low profile squat, only going out at night.
From that he could choose to lay low, or go hunting.
A much bigger problem that might come about right now is when criminals realize that now is a great time to get revenge on the LAPD, by assassination, figuring he will get blamed for it.
It would benefit them both, and since he is a “kill on sight” target right now, as soon as he is nailed, who’s to say he didn’t do it?
They’re load ordnance, Google Geo-Typo Maps, infrared and more, to make sure they *get him* before he disappears for 2-3 days again. Kill some family dogs along the way, just to keep in practice.
Our laws, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights - only so much useless paper.
Who knows? Maybe he already has a foreclosed home already prepped out. A few months of non-perishable foodstuffs, ammo and weapons, and he’s good to go.
Dorner’s been planning this. For awhile. This isn’t just some Charles Whitman kind of scenario.
As many as he can. This is his S&D Op.
What makes Dorner so dangerous is that he’s willing to target the family members of those who’ve apparently earned his ire. For instance, the unfortunate young woman who was killed on Sunday. The daughter of a police captain.
And heaven help anyone, especially a cop, who gets in his way. He’ll blow them away without a moment’s hesitation.
Safest for him to stay in CA. The gun control laws get much weaker the further he gets from home... NV, AZ, TX. Best for him to stay where he is the only one carrying concealed weapons.
DC Shooter/Sniper ‘MO’ comes to mind, until they catch him. SWAT AR-10/.308, suppressor, Leupold Glass and 500 rounds would keep him busy terrifying the area.
Oh that’s not new my good man. They are the first from the 40 LAPD officers explicitly named on his list.
Yes. Susan Rice will be on Meet The Press on Sunday blaming its director, who will be seen in split-screen being led away in handcuffs.
I hope some citizen catches him moving and caps him with an ‘06.
It’s been rumored he may also have a .50 caliber sniper rifle as well as a MANPADS. Again, that’s straight-up rumor, which isn’t surprising given the situation. But damn, if he’s got that, L.A. is gonna be an interesting town! The cops are gonna be even more hair-trigger and jumpy.
Yeah, it is. He’s essentially declared war on the LAPD, and in his book, family members of the people who’ve angered him aren’t considered non-combatants. He’s already proved that.
And if it were a conservative fugitive you would wish that also? Is that the kind of world you wish to live in?
Wait a minute, you were wearing what now?
I believe his plea to the court of appeals ran out sometime in 2011 after several years of fighting to get his job back. He’s had quite some time to plan for this.
After he hit the couple, time goes by and he shoots n scoots guerrilla fashion 2 different groups of police same day, taking advantage of element of surprise before the lockdown.
My opinion? His trek to San Diego “attempting” to grab a boat and his burned vehicle left 150 miles away are to spread out law enforcement resources. He’s back in L.A. hiding in the urban jungle. He’s waging an effective psy-ops and terror war. I read 40 police or so protecting each individual listed in his manifesto, so how many police guarding the family members? He’ll probably wait it out for some time with supplies stored, watch as the LAPD showcase violating people’s rights and shoot at innocents. Then strike at police support personal at their homes. Besides the .50 cal Barrett which is formidable, I believe he has sound suppressors? He probably has some explosives as well like homemade IED’s perhaps, several vehicles bought cash stashed in overnight lots.
He probably had a motorcycle staged for his departure from Big Bear and is probably in the desert now. Plenty of desert to get lost in. He’ll wait a couple weeks or until his food/water supply runs out then come back to the city, unrecognized by anyone as he will be wearing a motorcycle helmet.
I think that it will end in this manner, but I'm not sure that this will be next. I think he will kill some more officers in a "random" hit. As officers close in on him, I think he will draw them into an ambush situation and try to take as many with him as he can.
he’s a cold-blooded murderer.
Nobody said to kill him because he praised Obama in his manifesto.
“...the question becomes how long can US Vets, “survivalists” & “prepper” and other determined 2nd Amendment Patriots, last...”
A lonnnngggggg frickin’ time.
I agree with your assessment. I would add that what he might also do is pop up from time to time with a random cop shooting as part of his “asymmetric warfare” campaign.
I mentioned on another thread regarding the subject that he might also have multiple ID’s. It’s not that hard to get them in L.A., especially on Alvorado near MacArthur Park, and the quality is damned good. I used to live around there for awhile in the late 90s, and you get all set up for about $500.
He was a cop - I’m pretty sure he’d know about this angle.
