February 12, 2013

Police were in a fierce gunfight with the fugitive ex-LAPD cop suspected of killing three and declaring war on the force, with the wanted man holed up in a cabin in the San Bernardino Mountains, law enforcement sources said.

Two police officers were reportedly injured, and it was not known if Christopher Dorner was hit in the dramatic battled [sic] that unfolded early Tuesday afternoon in the resort area of Big Bear. A police source told The Associated Press Dorner, who has vowed not to be taken alive, burglarized a cabin on the mountain resort area where days ago his truck was found burning. Two people were bound inside the cabin, but one managed to escape and call authorities around 12:50 p.m. local time.

Fish and game wardens spotted a suspected stolen car near the scene and tried to stop it near Big Bear Lake. The driver, believed to have been Dorner, fled on foot, exchanging gunfire, sources told Fox News. Hours later, police were believed to have Dorner cornered in a cabin, exchanging gunfire with the suspect. Police were unable to say what weapons Dorner had, but said he was augmenting his gunfire with smoke grenades.

San Bernardino police were on the scene the county Sheriff's Department shut down Highway 38 to create a choke point, sources told Fox News. Four area schools were on lockdown.

The shootout came after a day of searching and speculation, with authorities continuing their door-to-door search in the rural
Southern California community, even as sources guessed Dorner may have made it over the border and into Mexico.

Dorner, who claimed in a rambling manifesto posted online that he was booted from his job unfairly after official [sic] determined he falsely accused his partner of assaulting a suspect, is suspected of gunning down Monica Quan, 28, and her fiancé Keith Lawrence, 27, last week in Orange County. Quan’s father, Randall Quan, represented Dorner at the hearing in which he lost his job in 2009. He vowed to being [sic] "asymmetrical warfare" to the department, using his police and military training, and named 40 "targets." Police have guarded the homes of the targets even as they conducted what may be the biggest manhunt in state history.

The 33-year-old former Navy veteran is also suspected of shooting two police officers in Riverside, Calif., killing 11-year veteran Police Officer Michael Crain.

Although statewide alerts were issued in California and Nevada, and authorities were watching the border, the most intense phase of the search has not left Big Bear since last week, when Dorner’s burning truck was found on a local forest road.

In recent days, hundreds of police officers have scoured the mountain, searching cabins door-to-door. While the search on Big Bear was scaled back on Monday, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department continued the hunt.. [sic]

"The search for Christopher Dorner will continue until he has been apprehended or it has been determined that he is no longer on the mountain," San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said Tuesday.

“Christopher Dorner is seen on a surveillance video at an Orange County hotel on January 28, 2013 in this still image released by the Irvine Police Department.”

Meanwhile, an associate of Dorner was being tracked by investigators, according to court records that suggest Dorner may have received help as he eluded a massive law enforcement dragnet. A criminal complaint filed in federal court raises the possibility that Dorner may have been assisted by an associate identified as "J.Y."

It's amazing to me that so many people who claim to be appalled with police corruption are supporting the most corrupt cop around. How cognitive dissonant does it get?

It's so cognitive dissonant, there're many online- including many white Americans - on various websites , trying their damndest to find a reason to blame the white cops in LA for the violence the black rogue cop is committing.

And the minorities are so happy Dorner killed a white cop, they totally overlook he killed a few minority types as well.

And so many talk about the LA police force like it's 1960. So many overlook the fact of how race-mixed/mixed-race the LA police force now is. That has nothing to do with the corruption,of course.

It's still a black/white issue like it was 1960. Amazing.

And so many just assume the innocent by-standers were shot by white cops. Minority cops are never in any way incompetent or in any way wrong in their actions -- even the nigger rogue cop going around shooting people and causing mayhem! Amazing.

This white man wouldn't be a cop in LA, and put my life on the line for all the white leftists in that city, "for all the whiskey in Ireland", to quote a corrupt white cop from the movie,
"LA Confidential".

And I'd bet the farm Dorner has alot of accomplices, not just one. Dorner issued a "manifesto". "Manifesto" is a communist word - communist jargon. He has the full backing & support of the communist party. The communists found a very "useful idiot" for BRA USA. This is yet another planned "spontaneous" event. How communist does it get? How cognitive dissonant of most Americans to be so blind to the communism staring them in the face, and taunting them. Joe

I'm watching the Fox News Channel which just reported the other officer shot today has undergone major surgery, but is expected to make it.

Dorner is apparently dead.
