An LAPD Lt. selected to represent an Officer (Dorner) with his claim against the LAPD.. Talk about foregone conclusion! What a joke.
This is what happened to a couple ladies last time the even though they had him:
They want him dead, dead, dead, dead.
They are in for a long hunt.
Yep. He's in Oakland, I bet.
Growing up I was proud of our country. I felt bad for people who lived in countries with government controlled media and thug controlled police departments.
We just take for granted that police will assassinate someone they’re after.
this guy seemed to be prepared. He could be on a ship or in the mountains or the desert or almost anywhere by now
Wouldn’t surprise me. He’s got quite a tactical advantage right now, provided he is indeed gone from the Big Bear area.
Sure, we all know what he looks like.
But if he’s in a car, no one knows what he’s driving.
Unless LAPD gets really lucky they're going to have some casualties.
Very insightful, yefragetuwrabrumuy. BTTT!
Do they make motorcycle helmets that big? That guy's head is huge!
He’s in the desert, and after a quick trip to a Barstow or Needles supermarket, can probably hide out for months until the desert gets hot again.
They may finally catch him with technology but I don't think they will run him down any time soon.
I’m not sure this nutcase is all that prepared. In the video at the link it claims that after the rope got wrapped up in the propeller (Ha!) he “became frustrated”. Perhaps he had a Plan A (steal a boat) and a Plan B (okay, if stealing a boat doesn’t work, I’ll take my truck with the motorcycle and .50 cal and head to my hideout in Vegas after burning my truck at Big Bear).
But I doubt it.
I liked the part where this master criminal assassin dropped his briefcase and badge.
The disgruntled ex-LAPD officer suspected of shooting three police officers Thursday morning and killing a couple in Irvine earlier this week tried to steal a boat in San Diego and flee to Mexico, authorities said....
The 81-year-old boat owner reported being accosted and tied up by a burly man dressed in black who threatened him with a gun and said he wanted the boat to flee to Mexico. But while the assailant was trying to start the boat, a rope became fouled in the propeller and the boat was inoperable, authorities said....
About 2 a.m., a citizen reported finding property belonging to Dorner on a street near Lindbergh Field, not far from the scene of the attempted boat theft. The property included a briefcase and Dorner’s LAPD badge.
*sigh* It’s not the same country I was born into. The Flag is different, The Pledge is different...
“Theyre going to kill him on-sight;”
Or whoever they mistake for him.
“Dorners LAPD badge”
If a cop is fired, don’t they turn in their badge and hold up their paycheck until they get it?
and anyone standing nearby and whatever random dog wanders by
Three false trails in few hours.
The last thing he wanted to be was a “sore thumb” target in a flat ocean.
Convince everyone he’s headed to Mexico? He’d want that.
Badge and ID near the airport?
Convince everyone he’s headed to elsewhere? He’d want that.
Burned out truck in the San Berdo mountains?
Convince everyone he’s hiding in the snow? He’d want that.
Where is he really? I’d place good money that it’s not Big Bear. He’s warm and snug watching the LAPD tramp around in the snow, freezing their butts off, burning resources, and tiring themselves out.
In a few days when they are totally burned out it will be time for another strike and diversion.
I have several souvenir company ID cards. I turned one in each time I left a job.
Nope. The fourth movie in the series was called Rambo.
You’re thinking of First Blood.
A local I know from Vegas told me it is the worst place to go, if you are on the run. Probably the most amount of security cameras, and people monitoring them, per square mile, in the world. The fugitive owned a house there, as well. I think he is elsewhere. Thanks.
If you were trying to flee the country via a stolen boat, would you tell the boat owner where you intended to go?
He's either incredibly stupid, or that was a deliberate ruse. I suspect he may have stolen the boat with the intent of ditching it somewhere down (or up) the coast, as another diversion, but don't seriously think he was trying to run to Mexico.
He probably had a car parked somewhere near where his truck was burned. Then drove down the backside of Big Bear into the high desert.
He could be attempting to spread The Coast Guard out, as well. In 1983 Kevin Cooper evaded a manhunt for quite a few weeks, working as a crew member on a sailboat, off the coast of CA, and Baja. I’m sure law enforcement won’t discount that possibility.
Note that the two perps who hit the prosecutor in Texas a week or two ago havn’t been flushed out either.
“this guy seemed to be prepared. He could be on a ship or in the mountains or the desert or almost anywhere by now”
I don’t know how sharp this guy actually is in the planing dept. but if he is he’s had a lot of time to plan and salt away attack/escape assets all over any locale of his choosing. Very scary.
The government wants to limit law abiding citizens to 7 round clips.
Two highly trained professional law enforcement officers, when confronted by 2 unarmed elderly women delivering newspapers, were unable to take either of them out with over 50 rounds.
And they expect ordinary citizens to be able to protect themselves from armed and dangerous home invaders with no more than 7 bullets?
The news in LA reported yesterday that he had multiple license plates with him, so he probably has multiple IDs as well. Who knows what he’s driving now, if he’s driving at all — but he does seem to be covering a lot of ground.
Yes, I’m sure he’s a long way from Big Bear now.
An ex-cop on a local LA radio program yesterday explained how police officers have multiple badges, not like in the movies.
Leaving “clues” everywhere and nowhere. He has no family, no support (we think) and therefore has nothing to lose. That makes him LETHAL.
I feel sorry for all the civilians getting shot up by LAPD. They truly look like amateur retards. I’m amused because of the “bad mofo” vibe the balaclava wearing, spec op wannabes that make up some of the LAPD have and are finding out what REAL spec operators deal with and what real combat in a FAO is.
Its not busting down doors of grannies or wrong addresses and killing dogs and innocent civilians but having to REALLY have your head on a swivel and really have muzzle control and really deal with shoot-no shoot scenarios. Now they’re acting like I always suspected they would.
Those involved in shooting the civilians should be fired and charges filed. At the very least their pensions should be held for civil liability as compensation.
Where is Inspector Clouseau and the Keystone Cops when you need them???
I heard that was probably a Mexican drug gang hit.
For those keeping store, I believe the cops have now shot more people that he has. Of course, being lousy shots, so far the cops have scored no kills. I’m sure that will change.
But with his face and body size known to public - he will be found soon
Not in the LA area. He looks like an awful lot of the populace of South Central/Watts/etc, and I am NOT talking about his skin color.
>Yep. He’s in Oakland, I bet.<
Weird. I was thinking that too.
SWAT teams, were driven in glass-enclosed snow machines and armored personnel carriers
^^^^^There’s your answer. Molly-coddling and weakness. Pope mobiles for SWAT teams!!
He's got you confused. Less than 3 hours after he was "frustrated" in San Deigo, he stages an ambush in Corona 100+miles north, then another 20minutes later in Riverside. He's working to a plan.
But with his face and body size known to public - he will be found soon
I don’t think so. I feel he gained a lot of weight just so he could go on his “mission” and then get thin again. Shouldn’t take long in a stressful situation. His hair and beard will grow...he’ll drop weight and then hide in plain sight. JMTC
The “Great Escape” during World War II tied up millions of German soldiers. They were just 76 unarmed escapees. Almost all were captured but they drained manpower from the war effort.
If you factor-in the number of family dogs shot, the cops are way ahead. Sadly.
He could be shopping at Wal-mart wearing a burkha.
“...glass-enclosed snow machines...”
Packed-in tight, it’d be a great shooting gallery.
This’ll all be “over”, in the field. No perp walks, here. Just a tag & bag op.
