Manhunt for ex-soldier who shot police chief's daughter and killed policeman (SEND IN THE DRONES)
Express (UK) ^ | 2/10/2013 | Mike Parker

Posted on 02/10/2013 4:20:08 PM PST by WhistlingPastTheGraveyard

Police plan to use spy drones in the hunt for a Rambo-style ex-soldier and policeman who has murdered three people and vowed to kill again.

They believe burly, heavily-armed Christopher Dorner is holed-up in the wilderness of California’s snow-capped San Bernardino mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles.

The burnt-out shell of his pick-up truck was discovered in the nearby resort of Big Bear, where residents and tourists have been warned to stay indoors as the search continues.

Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil.

A senior police source said: “The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.”

I believe that on FoxNews they said that this guy had been declared “a domestic terrorist.” Sounds like an DHS authorization for a “shoot on sight” sniper kill whether by SWAT team or by drone.

Would the terrorized LA/CA public object to a drone kill after he gunned down the LAPD officer/lawyers daughter, her fiancé and another officer?

Note that the military has already deployed switchblade micro kamikaze drones. Could there be a secret POTUS authorization for DHS to use switchblade drones on “domestic terrorists”?

When did a perfectly good word like “conspiracy” become so loaded? It simply refers to the act of two or more persons acting to deceive. Something men have been doing since the dawn on time.

Anyone who doesn’t believe this government is engaged in an ongoing and (seemingly) endless “conspiracy” to subjugate the citizens of the country is blind. There is no act they won’t commit. There is no lie they won’t tell. And with a complicit press and a mostly unaware, apathetic public, there’s nothing they can’t get away with.

Exactly. That's why he's back in LA and being sheltered by someone who drove him back after he torched the truck.

He may have an accomplice helping to hide him. He had ample time to write up and send his threats, before doing his crimes and going into hiding. Nothing helps like having someone else getting you supplies while you stay hunkered down somewhere. There are groups of people in Oakland and Berkeley who would shelter him, but he could have a friend helping. Problem with groups is that they're watched by FBI. Problem with friends is, the FBI would be checking all his contacts. More likely he is on his own.

Hellfire is our future as soon as Homeland inSecurity officially named Americans the equivalent of Islamic terrorists. DOD followed up the INSANE DHS war on America with war games agianst the Tea Party...LOL

In this case, they already tried to murder two US citizens because they delivered newspapers in a small truck. With all the bullets they fired into that truck of innocents, they managed to only hit the oldest (seventy years old) in the back. She’s in the hospital and her daughter, the passenger, already has a lawyer.

Our Nation is insane, people.

The LAPD has gone completely bonkers....

The reaction on the ground appears to be emotional in nature, whether that be fear, hatred, or a combination.

As long as the LAPD is reacting emotionally, they will be at a disadvantage with an opponent who is cold and calculating and rational in comparison.

The fact that they were looking for two white men in a blue van also helped them stay free to murder more people.

The media was doing everything in their power to make a hero out of Chief Moose and he had nothing to do with any part of the investigation which found them, and even then it was a civilian truck driver who caught them.

I think they were even making a movie of Chief Moose as the hero. After it turned out he wasn’t they may have cancelled it. Of course they could have still made a movie with Mosses as the hero and most people would never have guessed he wasn’t.

My guess is that he never attended SERE.

You are more than likely correct.

The Riverines have their own training facility at Camp Lejuene, which is probably much less than SEALs but along the lines of ‘light’ Spec Forces training. (my opinion, based on what MRF people were doing during NAM.

When do the Pensacola selectees go through SERE training? (If they still do)?

I do know that back during NAM the people from my ship going to RIVRON’s etc had to go back to the States for SERE training prior going to VN....(we were home ported in Yoko)

“My guess is he is holed up somewhere either dying of dead from the elements.”

Mine is just a guess too, but I believe he was a long way from Big Bear before the truck caught fire.His targets are in LA, that’s where he is IMHO.Things left in the truck make it look like he left in haste and has the cops bogged down in the mountains, not a bad diversion.Either way it turns out, it will be an interesting case study

The Beltway snipers probably could have remained at large if they hadn’t tried a stupid extortion scheme
- - - - - - - - - - - -
I thought at the time that if those two bunglers could bring DC to a standstill and elude every cop in 3 jurisdictions - including the FBI - what havoc could be wrought on a ‘scared’ bunch of sheeples if one were to set up 10 teams nationwide, in coordination.

HOWEVER, the stupidity of the two made it possible to stay on the loose....

They even went to the Police at the 7 Corners shooting and were talking to them, asking what all the excitement was.

Of course looking for a ‘white van’ was priceless since most all the trucks at the time were white and these ‘fools’ didn’t know if they were looking for a pickup with a cap, a cargo van OR a 26’....

Moose was the perfect ‘fall guy’ for the FBI, they ‘let’ him be the spokesperson and actually had nothing to lose. IF the operation failed, they could blame it on the ‘Black Guy’ that got forced on us and if it came out well, he ‘never would have been successful without our expertise’.....

Or...he is holed up somewhere either dying or dead from the...drone.

Of course if they use this guy as some kind of a live fire exercise and demonstrate that Due Process is indeed dead in America and not just overseas, they may at least try to hide the body. He's being awfully quiet for someone who has run out of time.

Like it or not, due process means this creep (short of threatening or opening fire on someone) should still get a trial. If for nothing else then to give that poor captain the satisfaction of facing his daughter's killer. Face to face.

I’m amazed at the low level hidden interest in the minds of many that hope he can trip the system and get out of the game alive.

Americans have a fascination with outlaws anyway, but there is yet another motive.

People want to see if someone, anyone can 'beat' the powers that be on a manhunt. They identify with the idea of being hunted for whatever reason, especially with the level of totalitarianism lately.

While that ignores the apparent fact that this guy is a leftist and a murderer, people also recognize that they, too, could be characterized by the government and mass media as virtually anything and having done virtually anything, should TPTB decide--and then hunted in similar fashion.

I used the word “conspiracy” tongue in cheek; I don’t know how many times I’ve posted the dictionary meanings of that word when people fling it around as though the definition was “paranoid fantasies believed in by kooks”.

I’ve posted the definition from legal sites, too.

The freakgov is the biggest criminal conspiracy around, other than mozlems but then, I repeat myself...

I agree with you 100% and there is no act horrific enough for them not to commit. They’re on the beginning of their roll, since Steaming “won” a second term, and the Rs didn’t even whine about the massive election fraud.

My tagline says that Rs without courage are the enemy. They have no virtures at all, if they have no courage.

So, he also purposely fouled the prop with a mooring line on the boat he started to take from the marina - another clever feint?

Wouldn’t it be ironic if everybody was forced to conclude that the only way for Dorner’s targets to be safe is if everybody is armed so that if he tries to strike again they can shoot defensively? He could be anywhere in the country by now, and drones can be wrong and shoot innocents just as much as cops can be wrong and shoot innocents. You know they’re not an innocent when they pull out a gun and try to shoot. If somebody is armed when the shooting occurs, you may end up with one dead victim and one dead perp. That may be the best we’re gonna get.
