by Anonymousreply 3402/12/2013

It sounds like he took the hostages for several days before fleeing in their vehicle.

[quote]Days ago, Dorner broke into a cabin off Route 38, a source said. He allegedly tied up the couple inside and held them hostage until Tuesday morning when he left. It is unclear whether Dorner stole their vehicle or another, but Fish and Wildlife officers knew to be on the lookout for a white pickup truck when they spotted Dorner driving one and attempted to stop him, the source said.

[quote]Dorner crashed the truck during the ensuing chase and allegedly exchanged gunfire with the officers as he fled into another cabin, where he was quickly surrounded by San Bernardino sheriff’s deputies. The source said one deputy was hit as Dorner fired out of the cabin and a second was injured when Dorner exited the back of the cabin, deployed a smoke bomb and opened fire again in an apparent attempt to flee. Dorner was driven back inside the cabin, the source said.

Well, honey, I believe they left him in there to burn to a crisp long after they knew he posed no threat. He was already dead. They could have gone in, they could have put out the fire.

He shot himself, or was killed by a sniper. I think he probably shot himself after the tear gas canisters exploded and the fire started. A sniper would've had a visibility issue.

I wonder who started the fire. I say law enforcement did. They figured he'd either come out and they could shoot him, or he'd dtay in and burn.

I think law enforcment let him burn to a crisp. I think they were wrong to do that. he was dead. They should have ended it differently.

by Anonymousreply 12002/12/2013

You know, Dorner was all the way wrong to go on a rampage shooting people, and that manifesto certainly points to unstable behavior.

But the LAPD still needs to be checked because someone lied on him & got him fired. They need to fully investigate that.

I am not saying LAPD caused this rampage to happen, even tho Dorner himself seemed to blame them. I believe something else would have happened to trigger this repsonse.

Based on that manifesto and other stuff I read about him over the years, he was bound to explode at some point. He was filled with anger. He should have never been allowed to join LAPD. He was never fit to serve. We don't need unstable lunatics becoming police officers.

He is surely a murderer and the last cop had nothing to do with the LAPD. Many fangurls are saying he was killed so he couldn't about what?

What I find completely hard to believe is this, Dorner runs from the cops and makes it to Big Bear. He had been adept enough to get that far. So then he sets fire to his own vehicle? That won't bring any attention to him right?

If all that time they had been shooting at every vehicle that looked like his they must not have had he vehicle plates right? Cause all they have to do is run the plates on the suspect vehicles to see if they match his right? But they didn't do that. Isn't that routine?

He could have just abandoned his vehicle parked it in some parking lot or driven into one of the state parks and left it parked in there and within the hour jacked someone else's car and made it out of Big Bear but instead does the one thing that would cause the most attention, set his own car on fire.

The FIRST people he shot were black. Monica Quan sound Asian but she was black and asian. And no one cared esp since he claimed discrimination. Why'd he shoot black people?

Distrust of the police is much more widespread than many people appear to realize or are willing to admit. It's not exclusively a black or Latino issue. Young white males have also been victims of police brutality. Ask any young white male in SoCal who is a skater or fits the description of a skater ( or even worse a pothead) if they know anyone who has been harassed or beaten by police or if they've experienced it themselves. Young Asian males who fit a certain profile or drive certain cars may also have a story or two.

Many young women of various backgrounds have had some not so nice encounters as well. In fact, a police officer in my city was just sentenced to prison for sexually assaulting numerous young women he pulled over. We have a very famous case in the city of a young woman was beaten, raped, and murdered by a cop after being pulled over one night while driving home. The cop was a serial rapist who used his badge to assault young women. So distrust of the police is fairly widespread.

Killer CHP Officer Craig Peyer -- a real dick.

But the CHP was proactive and positive in its response and in updating its procedures to protect the public.

In a real way -- not in a LAPD way.

[quote]On the night of December 27, 1986, 20-year-old Cara Knott was driving south on Interstate 15 from her boyfriend's home in Escondido to her parents' home in El Cajon, when Peyer, who was on duty in a marked CHP patrol car, directed Knott to pull off the freeway on an unfinished off-ramp. It was later known that Peyer had also been harassing a number of other female drivers in the same area and pulling them over on the same off-ramp and was supposedly trying to pick them up as dates. It was thought that the situation escalated to physicality when Knott threatened to report Peyer for his inappropriate actions. Peyer then bludgeoned her with his flashlight and strangled her with a rope. He then threw her body over the edge of an abandoned bridge where she fell into the brush below.

[quote]Coincidently, two days later, while covering the investigation of the murder, a reporter with KCST-TV interviewed Peyer during a ride-along segment about self-protection for female drivers. At the time of the interview, Peyer had scratches on his face which, as details of the case unfolded, were thought to have been inflicted by Knott during the struggle with her and Peyer. He tried to explain that they were caused when he fell against a fence in the CHP parking lot, but the fence was found to be too high to be relevant to the scratches on Peyer's face.

The CHP now keeps a healthy eye on its officers, and takes any complaints about inappropriate behavior seriously and without malice.

[quote]Cindy Bachman ..the San Bernando Police spokesperson seems like a real bitch

Yeah, because she just got done explaining the situation and that it was too hot to go inside the cabin. Then the dumbshit reporter asked the question that she just finished answering, and the reporter more or less said 'yes I know, but' and it pissed Cindy off. She had every right to be pissed.

Fucking reporters.

And the one liking Dorner to the escape of John Wilkes Booth is vindicated: this is exactly what happened to Booth, right down to the fire with the authorities on standby.

The problem with the Cindy bitch is you don't lose our cool if they hire you as a "spokesperson" even if they are moron reporters. There were a couple of other law enforcement people they interviewed who kept their cool. She was totally unprofessional.

Ok so they set the house on fire. They say they hear a single gunshot. No one sees him leave. However the helicopters all had to back off due to the smoke, and if you have ever been near a fire the heat is blinding. Whose to say he didnt fire a shot at the wall and sneak out?

And since when is burning a house down an appropriate police tactic. they could have lit up the whole mountain in a wildfire.

by Anonymousreply 17802/13/2013

Didn't some of the reporters say earlier there was blood outside the cabin? Dorner was probably wounded in the earlier gunfight, making him sloppy enough to crash the truck he was driving. Otherwise he would have gone deeper into the woods. I don't think he was in any shape to try an escape, hence the single gunshot at the end.

Let this man's death serve as a lesson to all you budding serial killers and psychopaths--get some quality headshots taken before you start your spree, and make sure someone is in charge of distributing them to the press.

I think we're all tired of the same 4 or 5 photos of this guy, and there's simply no excuse for it. He stockpiled guns and ammunition, and I'm sure he drove past dozens of photography studios in the process.

Was the smoke white? Are we sure Dorner wasn't just made pope?

They always do this when a whole slew of highly trained, highly paid, highly armed cops realize that they are still outgunned by a single man who is better.

LOL, R181.

by Anonymousreply 18402/13/2013

Good point, R183. I wonder where they found him. The home had a basement, reportedly.

I googled it and that area is a very remote area. I had no idea it existed. I imagine the people who have places or live in that area are pretty well to do.

After the autopsy, we will learn that Dorner shot himself before they tore down the walls. They claim they heard a single shot as the walls were being torn down.

So they are safe. It wasn't clear yesterday if the one who remained behind was OK. They're two women, apparently.

Once the media shut up and let the family and friends of the poor cop have the mike, they proved to be a nice bunch of people who celebrated his service and humanity, and did not try to turn it into a shillfest for law enforcement.

If you are watching the service, you will find he was a rocker cop who liked British Blues and Flogging Molly.

When you listen to the narratives presented by the police, remember the narratives initially presented by the military about Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch.

Yes, the 1992 riots that rocked LA following the state court acquittal of the four LA police officers charged in the videoed savaging of Rodney King – a disturbance that caused over $1 billion in damages and claimed 53 lives – arguably qualifies as “long-ago.”

But long-ago does not apply to incidents within the past year like the woman kicked in her groin by a female LAPD officer in July 2012 who died minutes later while hog-tied inside a patrol car.

That unsourced “view” cited in the NY Times article is not shared by victims of the incidents triggering those LAPD brass community meetings like the skate boarder suckered punched by police, the nurse stopped for allegedly texting while driving who was slammed to the ground by two officers, who then gave each other a fist-bump for their take-down, and the handcuffed man shot by police.

While ‘many people’ certainly believe, or want-to-believe, that LAPD brutality is long gone, perhaps thanks to reforms implemented during that federal oversight period, news media accounts pushing that view without the balance of companion context comprise an element (albeit small) in the constant framing of police brutality as isolated incidents instead of as part of a long-standing, chronic and systemic issue for police across America.

At least that shabbily sourced NY Times article referenced racism and brutality, unlike many media entities that reported Dorner’s rampage without providing context beyond his crazed reaction to his firing.

The March 1968 Kerner Commission Report on ’60s-era urban riots –- the majority triggered by police abuse incidents including the deadly 1965 L.A. Watts Uprising -– criticized the news media for failing to “analyze and report adequately on racial matters” in America that included coverage of festering grievances like police brutality.

Compounding context-deficient coverage, news media reportage on police brutality rarely examines the central role played by prosecutors in perpetuating the problem.

The Los Angeles DA’s Office, for example, pushed one case protecting alleged police misconduct all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, where in 2006 that court’s conservative majority issued a ruling experts said eroded protections for whistle-blowing public employees.

The case involved a veteran LA prosecutor who said supervisors had retaliated against him after he exposed improprieties by a deputy during a drug investigation. Those supervisors pursued the drug prosecution despite those improprieties and then bashed the whistleblower for providing the defense with details of the improprieties — something that is actually required by law.

That 11/12 Daily Beast article began with an anecdote about LA city prosecutors’ declining to charge officers caught lying about a December 2010 incident in which a woman had been beaten and tazed by four officers, one of whom videoed the incident.

Fired Officer Dorner alleged that his LAPD problems began in July 2007 when his training officer, a female, kicked a man during an arrest outside a hotel. Dorner claimed that training officer and their immediate supervisor compelled him to fudge his official report, omitting the kicking, according to court findings.

LAPD officials found Dorner guilty of making false statements, relying in their determination largely on an Internal Affairs investigation. The IA investigator had interviewed the training officer and two hotel employees, but neither Dorner nor the victim were interviewed, according to an October 2011 California state appellate court ruling that nonetheless upheld a trial court’s ruling rejecting Dorner’s appeal of his 2009 LAPD firing.

by Anonymousreply 19502/14/2013

LAPD officials, in their administrative proceeding, faulted Dorner for failing to immediately report the alleged kicking incident. Officials brushed aside Dorner’s stated (and it turns out prescient) fears of backlash for exposing that alleged misconduct and also ignored the fact that he had in fact quickly reported that incident privately to two LAPD supervisors he knew ,, whom he also had told about racial slurs directed at him during his police academy training.

Officials also claimed Dorner manufactured the brutality complaint to maliciously deflate an adverse performance evaluation he suspected he would receive from his training officer.

LAPD officials have initiated a reexamination of Dorner’s firing since the rampage began.

Dorner, in an online manifesto posted before his rampage, criticized the fact that officers involved in both the Rodney King and other brutality scandals were promoted, not penalized.

An analysis of the Dorner incident for CounterPunch prepared by Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher and Mike King, a PhD candidate at UC Santa Cruz, concludes that brutality against non-whites remains a “structural function” of the LAPD.

“It is the commonness of excuses for police abuse/murder, the erasure of the victims as collateral damage that should be highlighted when trying to make sense of this broken, rogue, former Los Angeles cop,” Ciccariello-Maher and King wrote.
