PALMDALE (CBSLA.com) The owner of the Big Bear-area vacation rental cabin that went up in flames in the Christopher Dorner standoff watched it happen live on television Tuesday afternoon.
Candy Martin of Palmdale didnt want to speak on-camera, but her two children, Eric and Leah Funnel, told Inside Edition they couldnt believe their eyes when they saw that their familys cabin was the final act of the Dorner manhunt.
We turned the TV on and saw the news the Dorner guy had been caught. I heard he was still in the Big Bear area, (but) I thought he was long gone. And then they said Seven Oaks Mountain Cabins and we were like wow, said Leah.
Eric said, I got a text from my mom saying, Dorners at the cabin. Firefight. Lo and behold theres our cabin. Theres no mistaking our cabin up there.
The siblings said their mother, who owns seven cabins near the Seven Oaks community, called police to let them know there was no cable, Internet or phone service in the vacant rental for Dorner to use.
The Funnels said despite the ruins of the cabin, their hearts are with the families who lost loved ones.
Whatever happened to our cabin is inconsequential compared to what they lost. So Im grateful law enforcement did what they needed to do to get this guy so hes not on the loose anymore, said Eric
Well, then, no wonder LAPD fired Dorner.
He forgot to shoot the dog.
>When you say municipality,you mean taxpayers,right?<
In a perfect world, the police should pay for the rebuild.
But, in this case, it’s going to land in the taxpayers’ laps.
Just imagine filing that insurance claim!
I think it's pretty obvious that you are a liberal agitator and cop hater.
You are correct.
The cops didn’t shoot him in a fire fight, they burned down a house around him. That was a calculated move to kill him and if you or I did that we would spend the rest of our lives in jail. The fact that a deputy was killed does not give them the authority to perpetrate a revenge murder.
Thanks to all of you for clearing that up for me.
