Ex-cop manhunt: Fresh tracks found in Big Bear snow
LAT ^ | February 7, 2013 | 3:27pm

Authorities in Big Bear have spotted fresh tracks believed to be those of a fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer wanted in connection with a series of shootings and are combing the area for him, a Fire Department official told The Times.

Big Bear Lake Fire Department Asst. Chief Mark Mills also said the burning pickup discovered on a forest road has been linked to Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, sought in connection with a series of shootings that have left three people dead and two wounded.

TV helicopters showed the pickup being readied to be towed from the scene.

The truck was discovered hours into an intensive manhunt for Dorner that spanned Southern California. Although sources said there had been multiple reported sightings of Dorner's truck in the Big Bear area on Thursday, the burnt truck was too badly charred to immediately confirm it was his.

Meanwhile, the mountain community locked down schools and closed the nearby Bear Mountain Resort as a fatigue-clad SWAT team walked through the woods, rifles drawn.

Sean Jacques, director of loss prevention for Big Bear Mountain Resorts, said that after the burning truck was discovered on a forest service road, local law enforcement told resort officials to keep an eye out for Dorner and provided a description of the suspect.

So he's lured them onto ground of his choosing and he's armed and competent? This should be interesting.

325 pound black man hiding in the snow up in the 98.7% white community of Big Bear. That'll work.

Yeah, brilliant tactical plan there, "Rambo".

It does seem to be a lure...

For some reason, I'm reminded of an old Hawaii Five-0 episode about a sniper in a hilltop bunker.

My dog did some research and was quite relieved to find the fugitive had no pets.

They just reported that ‘ironically’ today is uniform day at the lake and a lot of law enforcement was already there. I think you are right.

Well, if he’s held up a person and had them drive down to Lucerne Valley, he’s halfway to never being found for a long time. The Cali desert can hide a resourceful man pretty easily.

...And I Want Some Candy and a Gun That Shoots
A mentally disturbed former soldier buys a new rifle and ammunition after a sales clerk fails to check him out. The soldier even signs his name as “George C. Patton.” He then holes up in a spot on Diamond Head and shoots out the tires of a motorist’s car and proceeds to shoot two police officers, one fatally. McGarrett coordinates the police response. The more McGarrett finds out, the worse it gets. It turns out the sniper has a weird relationship with his mother. The mother, in turn, denies the former soldier is her son. Time is running out and Five-O must prepare to...

Maybe this is how Bigfoot got his start.

And he's probably got a counter to IR spotting for the nighttime. Hell, I'm a cook, and I know that much.

This has already gotten very real, and very serious for the powers that be.

He's taking the high ground.

One summer, a fellow from the big city was going on a camping trip into the Rocky Mountains. He got all his gear, made the drive, and was at a local shop just before starting his hike into the wilderness.

He says to the store clerk, “Say, do you all have bears around here?”

“Yep,” replied the clerk.

“What kind?”

“Well, we’ve got black bears and grizzly bears.”

The hiker replied, “OK, I guess I better get some of these bear bells then. That way, when I’m hiking the bears will know I’m coming and I won’t startle them.” He gets a couple bells and takes them to the counter to pay.

“By the way, is there any way to tell if there are grizzly bears or black bears around?”, he asked.

“Sure,” replies the clerk, “ just check their scat to see what type of bear is around. You can tell the type of bear by what’s in its scat.”

“Hmmm, what would I expect to see in the scat?” asked the hiker as he picked up his bells to leave.

“Well, black bear scat’s got berries, leaves, some grass. Grizzly bear scat’s got bear bells.”

He is using psyops as a force multiplier.

He doesn't have a lot of cards in his hand, but you gotta know every cop looking for him has tense muscles across his shoulders, and a completely airtight sphincter.

He’s a dumbass, going to where he’ll be an easy FLIR + sniper kill from a helo.

A city is where you disappear, not up in snow country blazing like a torch, for goodness sake.

Unless it was a diversion, and he had another ride to go the other way. But my money is he wants to die on a mountain top, battling his demons.

A sniper in a chopper will be happy to comply.
