Skip to comments.Manhunt for ex-soldier who shot police chief's daughter and killed policeman (SEND IN THE DRONES)
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 Californias 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, its like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I hope they don’t start firing Hellfires at innocent people
In b4 the first “He’s dead, Jim”.
if they follow protocol, they will blow up several newspaper deliverypeople first.
People better keep their dogs inside.
That guy is going to have a big flir image. Maybe he has a cave. Or a space blanket hidey hole.
The burnt-out truck was a diversion.
He is more than halfway across the nation, possibly crossing the Mississippi River yesterday.
I read that Dorner’s truck had a broken axle. If so, I don’t think that was part of his master plan.
“Ex-soldier” my @$$. He was in the Navy and then the LAPD.
That’s a LIE —the very first drone targets were North Dakota RANCHERS.
Also the EPA was illegally searching private lands for YEARS.
The first targets were PROPERTY and LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS.
He’s being warm, dry, and well-fed, sheltered by the Nation of Islam, pay-back for what BrennanTheMuzzie did to Khadaffi.
He’s in LA in some mosque, and later he’ll strike again.
Did they convert him, yet? My guess would be yes.
When was the last time anyone saw him driving it? Do you happen to know?
LOL, I was wondering when someone was going to point that out.
The fact that they’re now offering a million dollars tells me that they think someone is helping him.
Two days later, we have our first target.
Found a "hidden" key and let himself in.
I haven’t kept up with this story, but I heard they found weapons in his torched pickup. Why would he do that?
Don't know - he could'a given it to a homeless person days ago, but the reports claim that there was camping gear and some firearms still in the truck.
That had never crossed my mind but it certainly is something which should be considered and if appropriate, investigated.
And dogs. Don’t forget the dogs.
If he’s been planning this for any period of time, he could have caches buried all over So Cal. He may be changing weapons and calibers along the way.
Oh yeah - the statists will have a field day with this leftist clown - mandatory RFID-chipping to ping cell towers will be next.
I never thought about that. Makes sense, Islam recruits most Americans in our prisons. Criminals are criminals whether they are locked up or not. Of course there were a few Americans who were NOT recruited in prison..
They've shot up at least two vehicles that I've read about, with innocent people inside.
What's to stop them from using armed drones? (which is why they should not be allowed to have them!)
The LAPD has gone completely bonkers....
I think the smart man who wanted to throw off people searching for him would pick a place where he could make it look like his vehicle became disabled unintentionally.
It would not be too hard to set such a thing up. Then drive away from the damaged vehicle after leaving several items of value inside to make it look as though you had to leave the stuff because you could only carry so much.
Wouldn’t need to be an Einstein to figure out this sort of a ploy.
Like our new CIA Director.
They’re already having a blast shooting up innocent newspaper delivery people.
He’s not a soldier, he’s never been a soldier and he never will be a soldier. A1
oh lord yes, the poor dogs that those drones will target...
Ex-soldier my @$$. He was in the Navy and then the LAPD.
= = = = = = = = = = = = =
True BUT if the data they ‘shared’ with us inre his Navy life is true, it seems that he was in a SEALs ‘transport’ unit, so he probably did go through Evasive Training and Survival School, and if correct about transporting “SEALs” probably had some training with them also.
It is just interesting to see how someone with a ‘little’ combat style training and police background (four years ago!!) is ‘outsmarting’ these ‘elite police teams’.
These people who think it will be a lark to come take OUR guns away may be changing their tune a little bit.
Which good be just a BAD as good......
Former SEALs might take offence... just sayin'
This whacko is playing the media and the police like a fiddle..just heard there is a report of a Dorner sighting in Northridge..I bet he is no where near here probably in Mexico..but if he wants to come back he will have no problem crossing the border..hope he knows Spanish the Dems will give him Amnesty
Yep, recruited in Riyadh, I heard..
Considering many on the left consider this guy their hero, I wouldnt be surprised if one of them is helping Dorner hide out
OH! Totally unpredictable.
Inside of what?
Hardened underground bunkers?
[wtf happened to this country?]
So, he also purposely fouled the prop with a mooring line on the boat he started to take from the marina - another clever feint?
‘newspaper delivery people’
Dogs of the 21st century.
‘newspaper delivery people’

Drones with FLIR capability changes everything.
Everybody will stand out like neon lights in the darkness, no matter how well camouflaged they are.
I have absolutely no sympathy for the mass murderer Dorner however the media appears to be covering for the dangerous clowns known as the LAPD-——http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2013/02/10/wtf-bulletgate-why-a-difference-print-media-vs-video-media-in-lapd-accidental-shooting/
This guy is a typical libtard who had to write down his non-important thoughts for everyone, and then act out in order ot get his silly opus read. Then the axle on his getaway vehicle breaks, very unusual. Stupid driving perhaps? Got stuck and broke it trying to get it out?
Or was it a sly trick to throw the law off his trail? Which is more likely? Screwup or crafty diversion?
He had to leave some gear and guns behind, you can only carry so much. He probably decided to travel lighter after the truck problem.
So what’s this fool done lately to garner all the “genius” talk?
“Everybody will stand out like neon lights in the darkness,”
Imagine being in your back yard naked, or making love and having some drone circling overhead with the operator getting his thrills.
I am quite happy to no longer be in the new USSA.
Remember that one Foreign Service Officer who was married to the Moslem woman from Syria, who used to hang out at the pool in Jeddah? He was an Asst GSO. He converted to Islam, but considering the amount of gin & tonic he put away,he really wasn’t too pious.
As long as you aren't in a truck you should be OK...
Sounds perfect to me.
I’d have left a bit of blood on things to make it look like I cut myself trying to fix it....but still, a good idea.
I’d be using cellphones in creative ways.... would make for a lot of confusion and wasted effort.
