Police: Dorner Is Heavily Armed, Trained and Dangerous
KTLA5 ^ | 9 February 2013 | Rick Chambers

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. — The ex-cop suspected in the killings of an officer and two others remained at large Friday as darkness fell over a mountain forest and police suspended their manhunt until Saturday morning. “Once it gets dark out there and the snow keeps falling and they have no air support, I don’t know how effective they would be in that situation,” spokeswoman Cindy Bachman of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

Throughout Friday, more than 100 officers searched through fresh snow for clues to the whereabouts of Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, a fired Los Angeles Police Department officer and former Navy lieutenant suspected in the three killings. Dorner allegedly wrote a manifesto declaring a war of revenge on police, authorities said.

By Friday night, police were expected to have completed a search of vacant cabins in the snowpacked forest of the San Bernardino Mountains near the resort town of Big Bear Lake, Bachman said.

“My opinion of the suspect is unprintable,” Riverside police Chief Sergio Diaz said, hours after one of his officers was killed. “The manifesto, I think, speaks for itself (as) evidence of a depraved and abandoned mind and heart.”

– Despite Dorner’s statement in the letter that “when the truth comes out, the killing stops,” Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck said authorities don’t plan to apologize to Dorner or attempt to clear his name. Dorner’s firing, Beck said Thursday, had already been “thoroughly reviewed.”

– In Nevada on Thursday, FBI agents searched Dorner’s Las Vegas home. The search forced some of Dorner’s neighbors out of their homes for several hours, CNN affiliate KLAS reported.

Several very interesting comments by authorities. Giving a quote saying what you think about someone you're looking for as being unprintable doesn't sound very professional to me. Also, maybe they just asked people to leave their homes instead of "forcing" them out.

Wouldn't it be helpful to have electronic tracking devices inbedded in all LEOs? It sure would help in finding this rogue cop.

The LAPD act collectively like Dobermans anyways.

For the safety of all, cops need to transpond at all times. Zero Tolerance.

I wonder if they’re kicking in all the doors and windows of those vacant cabins.

I’d be pissed if I went up to my cabin in the spring and found broken doors and critters living in the thing.

“...100 officers searched through fresh snow for clues...”

That there’s a real detective problem, guys.

Apparently, the authorities don’t think the suspect can get access to any news, either-it would make more sense to me to stay shut up about anything but the bare facts where the media is concerned. If this guy is as cagey as they keep saying he is, he is likely miles away fron where they are looking by now-and what if he has an accomplice or enabler? He wants to kill people, and they just keep blabbing about where they are looking, etc.

Hey! LAPD he ain’t up there anymore! He is resting in a safe house watching the coverage on MSNBC or CNN and planning his next move.

I recognize that some of Dorner's manifesto would fit very well at DU. I do not suppose that he is "one of us". However, he is a bit of a Henry Bowman, and should the day come when people begin to rise up against the Obama regime, the early risers will (if successful) act quite a bit like Dorner.

I will not "tsk, tsk" and look down upon those who take up arms against the government. As Churchill said, "If Hitler were to invade Hell, I would at least make a favorable reference to the Devil in the House of Commons."

Police: Dorner Is Heavily Armed, Trained and Dangerous

Apparently so is the LAPD.

Witness the similar truck shot up like Swiss cheese.

LAPD is fortunate that no one was hurt, but there's big money to change hands when this is over.

Yes, good for the goose, fanfan. Doing OK, but experiencing some heart issues that are not really helped by all the insanity running Amok in this world.

Since this cop went nuts, can we expect other cops to follow his lead? They are trigger happy out in LA, chooting up blue trucks and cleaning ladies.

These out of control cops need to be monitored with tracking devices. They are going to exceed their normal over-reaction and people are going to be hurt, like the gansters they purport to bring to justice. We need to match the transponder with the cop weapon, as no one is safe with this bunch.

You’d likely need to send the cops a bill for bear damage, too-by spring those bears will be wide awake and very, very hungry...

If everybody would turn in their guns they will be safe, and the police will protect them from the bad guys. Except this bad guy is a cop. oops.

Everybody in the area is protecting themselves with guns. You can’t expect anyone else to protect you.

Sorry California residents, many of you are sitting ducks because of the people in the state house.

I just read that manifesto. This guy is serious and he’s already counting himself as a dead man. Very dangerous and lethal combination. Ex-cop, heavily armed, has intel and its gadgets, severely depressed, knows the law enforcement system inside and out, 3 years to plan.

Sounds like this guy is going Rambo. In his mind, LAPD drew first blood.

“My opinion is unprintable” followed by ‘his actions are evidence of an abandoned and depraved mind and heart’ — I thought the Riverside Chief of Police’s words were spot on, totally professional, and actually THE words that described any of this.

Maybe they gave them tickets to the Sands so they could see a show while the search was being carried out.

And they shouldn't be allowed to carry fire arms, too. Very dangerous. VERY dangerous!

This is starting to look like the most UNprofessional manhunt since the sate of Wyoming was looking for Tom Horn.Or maybe Leflore County looking for Milam and Bryant.
This is pathetic.
