Dorner manhunt: Charred human remains found in burned cabin
LA Times ^ | February 13, 2013 | 2:08 am | Staff

Posted on 02/13/2013 6:58:19 AM PST by Red Badger

Charred human remains have been found in the burned cabin where police believe fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner was holed up after trading gunfire with law enforcement, authorities said.

If the body is identified to be Dorner’s, the standoff would end a weeklong manhunt for the ex-LAPD officer and Navy Reserve lieutenant who is believed to be responsible for a string of revenge-fueled shootings following his firing by the Los Angeles Police Department several years ago. Four people have died, allegedly at Dorner’s hands.

The last burst of gunfire Tuesday came after the suspect, attempting to flee law enforcement officials, shot to death a San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy and seriously injured another, officials said. He then barricaded himself in a wooden cabin outside Big Bear, not far from ski resorts in the snow-capped San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles, according to police.

Just before 5 p.m., authorities smashed the cabin's windows, pumped in tear gas and called for the suspect to surrender. They got no response. Then, using a demolition vehicle, they tore down the cabin's walls one by one. When they reached the last wall, they heard a gunshot, officials said, and then the cabin burst into flames.

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said he would not consider the manhunt over until a body was identified as Dorner.

This is a lie in every way, per real-time scanner "chatter" from a video on another thread.

The article doesn't say anything about if it's not Dorner's body.

“His new name is Chris P. Dorner.”

It’s being reported that Dorner quit smoking today.

Wood cabins in the wilderness burst into flames all the time for no good reason! Especially if someone nearby says “Burn the M***F****”, then it just complies.

Apparently there were natives from Papua New Guinea on a ski trip who thought Doner was a witch— which lead to the fire...

If it looked like Dorner (description by escaped vehicular robbery victim) and behaved like Dorner (not targeting ordinary citizenry but continuing to target LE, including shooting two San Bernadino County deputies one of which died), it was Dorner.

He was carrying out the manifesto.

Nothing else mattered to him.

He had become a stick figure of a man. One dimensional. All vestiges of anything resembling normalcy and with a heart and soul, GONE, if he ever had any.

If it wasn’t Dorner, then it was someone who looked like him and acted like him who had decided to assume his identity for some bizarre purpose, up in Big Bear. This, after Dorner’s confirmed truck was found burned up there.

It was Dorner.

Indeed, yet I can’t join in celebrating this as a good thing, even though I’m glad that Dorner is dead.

This time it was a cop-killing madman with a vendetta against law enforcement that makes it easy for some to justify just taking him out. But who is to say the next time the cops feel like WACO-ing someone it won’t be a law-abiding group of “bitter clingers” who happen to have more guns than the local sheriff thinks they should have? Or someone who refuses to leave their property that’s being taken by emminent domain, or a religious group that has defied local...oh, there we go with Waco again.

If the way we deal with lawbreakers is to burn them alive, then we might as well shred the Constitution and recycle it into toilet paper. It’s not about Dorner, it’s about the rule of law vs. state-run vigilantism.

IF Dorner’s body is the charred mass found in the cabin, great. But at this point, I don’t believe anything coming out of L.A.

Next we’ll hear he was buried with honors at sea, and no pictures will be released.

Well I am pretty sure they know it was him who was shooting the whole time.
I think what they mean by identifying the body is,,, making sure the burned body is not someone else like a hostage and Dorner slipped out. Highly unlikely with that many cops surrounding, but we saw what he is capable of

-Hiding in plain sight across the steet
-Eluding pursuit several times
-his military and LE training

The guy is good, gotta give him that. I wouldn’t pass it by him to pull off some kind of James Bond switcheroo and be days gone before the body is idntified.

But I think he shot himself and then the police burned the house. Its him.

It’s not about Dorner, it’s about the rule of law vs. state-run vigilantism.

The idea of cops carrying out revenge killings, just doesn't go down very easy. I expect criminals to execute people, but I don't expect the police to do it. And I couldn't care less that Dorner was killed, in fact, it's what he deserved. I'm just not sure setting the cabin on fire, is an appropriate tool or method for law enforcement.
