Dorner manhunt leads LAPD to Lowe's store in Northridge
Los Angeles Times ^ | Feb 10 2013 | Andrew Blankstein and Wesley LowreyAndrew Blankstein and Wesley Lowrey

Posted on 02/10/2013 9:53:28 PM PST by WilliamIII

The manhunt for Christopher Dorner led LAPD SWAT officers to a Northridge Lowe's home improvement store after people reported seeing someone who resembled the fugitive former police officer there.

LAPD swarmed the store off Nordhoff Street about 5 p.m. Customers were escorted out of the store as police looked for any signs of Dorner.

LAPD stressed that it was an unconfirmed sighting.

[Updated 7:27 p.m.: A law enforcement source said the call to the Lowe's might have been related to a couple fighting outside the store].

There have been several reports similar to this one in recent days that didn't pan out.

When I heard today I just started laughing..really? Does anyone think that Dorner would say to himself “Hey I gotta go pick up something at Lowes” yeah that’s where he would go..hey maybe next there will be a sighting of him at Home Depot or Dennys

If I were a bulky bald black fellow in SoCal, I'd call my boss and tell him that I think I'd need to work from home for at least a week, or take a short term leave of absence.

If I were the boss of a bulky bald black fellow in SoCal, I wouldn't quarrel about it and instead find someone to cover his work for a week.

That’s the only way they can get the cops there ~ Claim that Dohnner is there

Local LEOs have been comparing notes for several hours now at the KittenKat Club located nearby on the rumoured chance he might reappear.

And that is exactly how everyone see's dorner - a bulky bald black fellow. In fact, some posts that I have read on other sites perceive him as a Giant of a man. Although in the photo taken at the ATM, he still had a stocky look to him. Under the stress that he must be under by staying in the shadows (wherever that is), it is very likely that he is losing quite a bit of weight. Being around 6'0" tall, it wouldn't take long for him to trim down to the size of his Navy photo. Looks to be under 200 lbs there. My point is that if not found soon, the Giant of a man they are looking for could very soon become the Average guy and blend in much more easily. Just a thought - I am sure this has been considered by LAPD and others. As far as the bald part - that is a no brainer. Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

LAPD is on the lookout for a vehicle with four wheels and a license plate.

Yup. They actually did..

The only good things the cops here in Socal are good at is posing for pics with tourists and handing out traffic tickets.

LA won’t be safe until Dorner is caught.

The LAPD is making sure of that.

“said the call to the Lowe’s might have been related to a couple fighting outside the store”

Must have been a 170 lb guy and his 100lb wife fighting over who was going to have to use the newly purchased plunger. Easy to confuse with a 270lb guy carrying a man pad.

And if I were an Asian woman or a white man I would buy level IV body armor and hide in the basement for a week.

Honestly I think the police are just culling owners of pickups at this point.

Maybe women and skinny white guys should stay at home too. The police can’t seem to tell the difference.

This could be fun. I just saw him going into the Southern Poverty Law Center headquarters wearing a realistic "Morris Dees" mask. He had a gun. Better shoot first and ask questions later, because that's worked so well for you up to now.

No, wait - I saw him going into the Senate Building, wearing a realistic Chuck Schumer mask and wearing a gun. Better stop him before he hurts anyone else.

Were any walls in the store left standing?

He has been preparing for a long time. He’s not walking into stores. If someone really sees him he’s only poked his head out to murder some more people.

The women delivering newspapers that the LA cops shot up weren’t black, bald or bulky. Everyone in Southern California is at risk from these cop clowns. If someone reported Dorner buying kitty litter in a San Diego WalMart, you can bet that a clown car filled with a platoon of LA’s finest would motor over.
