Wouldn’t it be ironic if Mexican authorities planted a MANPAD, tracable back to Benghazi, in the vicinity of Dormer.

¿Rápido y Furioso?

They could definitely place the MANPAD, but the authorities who track the serial numbers will never report the connection to the public.

Nice shot across the bow to The Usurper, though...

Hunting Badger by Tony Hillerman is hereby added to my reading list.

I don’t think he’s a nutcase either. If he was, he would have shot the old man out of simple anger. But he didn’t.

*shrug* I think he is a nutcase, but he is a very bright and calculating nutcase. Shooting the old guy wouldn't fit his plan as the old guy needed to be alive to plant the "He's going to Mexico" meme.

He's doing everything he can to dilute, distract and tie down LEO resources.

He's crazy, not stupid, and probably wronged as well.

If he got out before the storm there is a spider web of 4WD roads N.E. of the lake. He could get into the desert or even Arrowhead without the main highway and his tracks are now covered by snow.

The cops DO have a right to protect themselves from a potential deadly threat.

Shooting unarmed people in the back? Emptying their weapons on an unseen target? Three unarmed victims so far -

You wouldn't be a cop by any chance, would you?

Good morning. I think you’re right: this isn’t going to be over anytime soon or end well, for anyone else.

A trial will shine entirely too much daylight on LAPD's culture.

Maybe. Cops, lawyers, judges. Birds of a feather. Information is only revealed in trials if the questions are asked.

...but the authorities...will never report the connection to the public...

But Dorner would have the right to testify.

Your mission, Mr. Phelps, if you choose to do it; is to climb to the hill where the 1907 picture of Orderville was taken,
so that pesky fellow from Indiana can see if any of the buildings seen in the old picture have survived to this day.

I don't think I approved of these.

You've outted me; as my daughter is married to a very fine one.

AFAIK, he's never had to shoot his weapon during a run; although he was in a SWAT unit early in his career.

The more I read about him, what he himself has written and what his ex-girl friend has said. I think is a narcissist who thinks the whole revolves around him. He has a long list complaints dating back to grade school of everybody that did him wrong. He remembers in detail every time somebody cut in line in front, and the longer it gets from the event the meaner they were to him. I have met people like him before who think every time somebody farts up wind of him is a racist. I think if he were put the stand most of what he said would only shine a light on him and how everybody else picks on him. He is a killer and should be giving no poor baby victim status. He has nothing worth listening to say about LAPD culture. He might have seen cops do bad things but none of them involved killing people like he did. He is not out seek justice for the victims of the LAPD but to get revenge against people who did him wrong.

I love Hillerman, but I didn’t know any of his books have been made into movies. Which ones?
