That report makes it seem the fellow is traveling light now.

Either he’s really throwing out misinformation, or something went wrong in his plan.

Bet this ends in suicide, maybe by cop.

"The official also told the network that the discovery does not preclude the possibility that Dorner has additional weapons and gear."

Duh! He obviously left them there for a reason you stupid morons.

His truck getting stuck in the mud was not part of the plan — nor was losing all that gear. He burns it all rather than hiding it or taking it with him. That wasn’t smart.

There are not may ways out of Big Bear and it he plans to hike out they will find his bones sometime next summer.

A cot makes little sense to me...except for burning and that’s just what happened...and the same thing with the other stuff...It was all tinder.....

Had he been driving a Volt, this wouldn’t even be suspicious.

Maybe pretty simple explanation. Leaving them there in vehicle with broken axle may mean he found another vehicle and doesn’t need them any more. He may have commandeered a second vehicle with driver and is long gone back to LA to focus on his real targets. He is on a mission.

Will this mean they will stop shooting up pickup trucks everywhere because they “match the description” in the mind of the shooting officers?

A stove, some propane for the stove and a cot aren’t much in the way of camping equipment and don’t qualify as survival gear by any stretch of the imagination.

A Coleman stove, cot and propane would be useless gear in high country in low temps - especially zero or colder. A Coleman stove is clunky and heavy compared to ultralight gear commonly available. Same goes for the cot - dumb choice due to air circulation under the cot. In sub-zero weather, closed-cell foam with adequate bags is the norm. Finally, propane delivers poorly in colder temps. Not as bad a butane but white gas or native fuels would be better choices. IMO, these items are decoy materials. Some people are of the opinion that he’s dead and covered with snow up in the mountains. I doubt that. He’s nuts but he’s not stupid.

allegedly been found

There's another reference to that magical term...."Allegedly".

The word that needs no explanation, no verification and certainly no proof. It ranks right up there with the word "May":

As in, he "May" have a .50 cal rifle....or he "May" not....

This is rather scary in a way.

Imagine a small group of men. All with IQ 130+
Skilled in survival and combat.
What if they took the time to very carefully plan out what they should do.

How on earth could they be stopped?
Certainly NOT by the LAPD.

I guess we have been very lucky so far.

I wouldn’t call that cold weather survival gear.

How does one tell if someone had a cot in the back of a completely charred pickup truck? I can understand the guns still being recognizable depending upon the heat of the fire, but a lightweight cot? As for his supposed “survival gear” the cot and the stove are “disposable” frankly. As for cold-weather survival in the high altitudes and mountains... you all make it sound like he’s heading up Mt. Everest. My husband used to go winter camping with our children in the Rockies - he’d be amused at all the people who think this guy is “definitely dead”.

A wacko, yes... but I wouldn’t trust anything the LAPD and associated agencies are saying about this guy or what they found at this point. Even if he’s already dead, he already bested them in some ways... And, incidentally, the LAPD proved one of his manifesto charges themselves - being “trigger-happy”. Just ask the newspaper delivery women if they think the LAPD AREN’T?

All that said, I don’t admire Dorner in any real way whatsoever. Just kind of amazed at some of the posters here saying this guy is a complete idiot - never underestimate your enemy...

The official also told the network that the discovery does not preclude the possibility that Dorner has additional weapons and gear.

Of course he does. He could have disposed of the truck and its contents in such a way as it wouldn't have been found for weeks. Burning it public like that was intentional, he wanted it to be found. He's handing them information - the information he wants them to have, leading to the conclusions/perceptions he wants to create. Any gear left behind was redundant or unnecessary for his plans.

The dude has help. He is not traveling alone if at all. He is also not in the area of Big Bear. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Take notes folks, they may come in handy later
