  • Dorner Manhunt Shows Flaws Terrorists Could Exploit: Report

    MSNBC ^ | 5/5/2014 | ANDREW BLANKSTEIN
    Serious gaps in communication and coordination by police agencies across California stymied last year’s manhunt for ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner and revealed weaknesses that could be exploited by more a formidable foe, according to a report issued Monday. Read the KNBC story on the new report. “In some ways, Dorner was an anomaly -- a well-armed attacker who knew police tactics,” stated the report from the Police Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based research group. “But police chiefs and county sheriffs involved in the incident agree that a small force of knowledgeable terrorists bent on creating havoc could easily replicate such attacks.”...

    In pursuit of a dangerous black male killer, Los Angeles Police Department officers mistook two Latina woman for the suspect and fired one hundred shots. Then, Torrance Officer Brian McGee thought he saw the suspect’s vehicle and rammed into it at full speed, nearly killing the innocent driver, David Perdue, a white man. McGee also fired three shots at Perdue. But L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey has decided not to press charges against McGee, since his error was “a reasonable mistake.”

    A Torrance police officer who opened fire on a pickup truck during the manhunt for former Los Angeles police Officer Christopher Dorner was justified in his actions and will not face any criminal charges, the District Attorney's Office announced today. Prosecutors concluded that Officer Brian McGee "did not commit any criminal misconduct" on Feb. 7 of last year when he rammed David Perdue's truck with a patrol car, then fired three shots through the driver's side window. According to a charge evaluation worksheet prepared by Deputy District Attorney Geoffrey Rendon, McGee acted reasonably in light of the ongoing search for...

    In the search for parallels to explain Aaron Alexis's killing spree at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, the media have turned reflexively to recent incidents in Aurora, Colorado, and Sandy Hook, Connecticut. Almost no one in the media, however, has made the obvious comparison to Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles Police Department officer who killed four people and wounded three others in a ten-day spree last February that ended with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Although the most visible point of comparison is race and gender -- black and male -- both were born in New York City within...

    SAN BERNARDINO (CBSLA.com) — The owner of a Barton Flats cabin has filed a claim against San Bernardino County saying sheriff’s deputies allowed it to burn during a standoff with rouge former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner. Candice Martin is seeking $420,000, alleging deputies made no effort to save her cabin in the 40000 block of Seven Oaks Road on February 13. Following a 10-day manhunt, Dorner barricaded himself inside the structure, shooting two deputies, killing Detective Jeremiah MacKay and seriously injuring Deputy Alex Collins. The vacation rental caught fire after authorities fired tear gas inside. Martin, of Palmdale,...

    The findings, which are expected to be made public this month at a Los Angeles Police Commission meeting, concluded that Dorner had a history of embellishing stories, misperceiving slights and making bogus complaints against his fellow officers, Rice said. He took more than twice as long as most officers to complete his training, was nearly incomprehensible during the hearing over his firing, and only filed a complaint against his training officer when he learned she gave him a bad performance review, Rice said.

Rick Heltebrake claims his 911 call on Feb. 12 led authorities to Dorner’s whereabouts before the quadruple-murder suspect ultimately barricaded himself inside a cabin and took his own life. “I believe it was my call that directly led the end of the largest manhunt in California history,” Heltebrake said. The Los Angeles Police Department announced Tuesday that three parties, excluding, Heltebrake, will split the reward...

The settlement, which allows both sides to avoid a trial, brings the Los Angeles Police Department nearer to closing what had been an embarrassing chapter in its search for Dorner. The department still is reviewing the actions of two officers.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — As a cabin smoldered with the body of rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner inside, politicians in a city that lost an officer to his rampage approved a $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest and conviction. The Riverside City Council voted unanimously with little discussion and no debate, even after being told the fugitive's demise was likely to be announced soon. News of the vote was dwarfed by Dorner's death after a week on the run, but the city made headlines this week when it said it wouldn't pay its slice of the massive $1.2 million...

    When cop killer Christopher Dorner was on the loose and terrorizing southern California, some 30 groups joined together to put a $1 million price on his head. But after the former LAPD officer killed himself while barricaded in a mountain cabin in February, some of those groups have gotten stingy. A law enforcement union became the latest of the contributors to voice second thoughts about its $60,000 share of the reward, following a similar decision by the city of Riverside to withdraw its pledge of $100,000. With Dorner dead and no shortage of prospective claims to the pot, it seems...

    The Chris Dorner case is very interesting. It is strange how the media beats a dead horse when some criminal minority is killed doing something stupid and claims his/her civil rights were violated (i.e. Travon, that shoplifter girl who tried to run over a cop and got shot) and then spreads the story nationwide. So, why has the Chris Dorner story almost complete died? I have some questions to ask: 1. Where's the continuing 24/7 media coverage of this case and the causes of the event? The man was black. He managed to publish his views that he had suffered...

Rick Heltebrake, who was robbed at gunpoint by Dorner while driving on a Big Bear-area road last month, has filed his suit against the city of Los Angeles claiming that it was his 911 phone call that led to Dorner's cornering. The full-time Boy Scouts ranger's life was spared during that carjacking while allowed to safely exit his truck and later call 911. According to his claim, it was that call...

    With the Christopher Dorner case, the role of prescription psychotropic drugs in mass killings has again come to the forefront. Numerous articles have approached the role of so-called "psych meds" in causing depraved and indifferent violent behavior, but one in particular deserves attention because it highlights the fact that among psychiatric professionals there is no coherent understanding of what needs to be done after we take people off of drugs that are prescribed for their psychiatric illnesses. The article -- Jon Rappoport's "Is Christopher Dorner Another Psychiatric Killer?" -- makes a number of important points about the former Los Angeles...

    Police typically say that their top mission is to protect “public safety.” That’s the lingo. But the recently concluded manhunt for former Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Dorner, accused of murdering four people after releasing a manifesto decrying his 2008 firing from the force, suggests that concern about the public’s actual safety sometimes is fairly low on the list of police priorities.Last weekend, police opened fire on a 71-year-old newspaper carrier and her 47-year-old daughter who had the misfortune of driving a pick-up truck police thought might be Dorner’s. The Los Angeles police detectives who opened fire on them,...

Before he went on his spree, Dorner wrote a manifesto praising liberal policies on gun control, media personages including Piers Morgan and Chris Matthews and politicians including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. But the bulk of Dorner's manifesto centered on his hatred for the police department from which he had been fired in 2009. He claimed in the manifesto that the LAPD "has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has...

    A liberal critic of my comments on "The O'Reilly Factor" this week tweeted his displeasure with my assertion that factions of the "Left" and "some liberals" sympathized with Chris Dorner and even made him into a folk hero. He asked for examples. Here's one:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO It's hard to imagine how Marc Lamont Hill could have put this more appallingly. One member of the panel starts by rather sensibly bemoaning the waste of life, manpower, and ink in this chase. Hill responds: "There's no waste here, though. I mean, this has been an important public conversation that...

    LA Police Chief Charlie Beck has made a bad decision. Life is a series of decisions. No one should understand this more than Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck. For obvious reasons, in any situation your ideal position is one of “win or break even.” Those who are in the public area, especially big city police chiefs, more often than not find themselves in the opposite position; “lose or break even,” but that’s part of the job. Since the “lose or break even” dilemma is virtually unavoidable as a rule, voluntarily placing yourself in one is especially foolish. When the...

    The husband and wife who say they surprised Christopher Dorner in their home, hours before he was killed in a dramatic standoff, described their terror as he bound their hands and feet. Jim and Karen Reynolds say they came to the home just before noon on Tuesday to find the fugitive had been staying in an upstairs room. Mrs Reynolds said that Dorner seemed 'calm and methodical' when he approached them, but her first instinct when she saw him was to run away - and Dorner chased after her. She tried to run up the stairs but was quickly caught...

    The Los Angeles Police Department ceased to be an active force for justice on March 4, 1991, when George Holliday turned over his amateur video of Rodney King’s arrest to the Los Angeles TV station KTLA. With tape in hand, the media began what the late Christopher Dorner might call a surge of “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against the LAPD and police departments everywhere. As in the Trayvon Martin case, the media edited and presented the tape to reinforce its favorite template: evil white racists oppress innocent minority. I say “asymmetrical” because in the King case, unlike the Martin case,...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- There was no question. The man standing before Rick Heltebrake on a rural mountain road was Christopher Dorner. Clad in camouflage from head to toe and wearing a bulletproof vest packed with ammunition, the most wanted man in America over the last week was just a few feet away, having emerged from a grove of trees holding a large, assault-style rifle.
  • Twitter Hoax Claims Body Fond In Burned Cabin Belonged To A Female, Not Christopher Dorner

    The day after “killer cop” Christopher Dorner was presumably killed following a firefight in a rural California cabin, conspiracy theories have swept Twitter asserting that the charred body found in the burned cabin did not belong to Dorner, but to an unidentified female. A Twitter hoax quickly gained traction on Wednesday, stating that a burned body found in the remains of the cabin did not belong to Christopher Dorner, but rather to an unidentified female. The hoax quickly swept Twitter under the guise of a fake screengrab from CNN. In the fake image, CNN’s news ticker was edited to read...

The man tied up the maids, and then took off in a purple Nissan parked near the cabin, authorities...

    A six-day California manhunt ended Tuesday with rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner apparently dying in a cabin fire on Bear Mountain. One of many big questions to be answered is how the deadly fire was started. Multiple unconfirmed audio clips appear to show police officers talking about burning down the cabin in which the alleged cop-killer was hiding. Deliberately starting a fire, rather than waiting out the suspect, could be seen as an extreme measure. ---(snip) In an unconfirmed video showing live footage from KCAL9 Los Angeles, officers are apparently caught in the background around the 20 second mark saying, "burn...

    Panelists MC Lyte, Jack Moore, Editor of BuzzFeed Sports, Lauren Ashburn, Editor-in-chief at The Daily Download, and Mark Lamont Hill joined Brooke Baldwin on CNN today to talk about the social media support for alleged quadruple killer Christopher Dorner. Ashburn was the only one on the panel who had a problem with the alleged cop killer being celebrated saying that he crossed a line when he began killing people to get his revenge for his alleged grievences. The rest of the panel concluded that Dorner "had a point" and that the unfolding story was theatric. Hill said that the saga...
