AP source: Dorner's license found in burned cabin
AP via WPXI ^ | February 13, 2013 | GILLIAN FLACCUS

Posted on 02/13/2013 7:45:15 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. — As police scoured mountain peaks for days, using everything from bloodhounds to high-tech helicopters, the revenge-seeking ex-cop they wanted was hiding among them, holed up in a vacation cabin across the street from their command post.

It was there that Christopher Dorner apparently took refuge last Thursday, four days after beginning a deadly rampage that would claim four lives.

--snip--

He never emerged from the ruins and hours later a charred body was found in the basement of the burned cabin along with a wallet and personal items, including a California driver's license with the name Christopher Dorner, an official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

Are they sure it wasn’t some illegal immigrant that was stealing his identity?

I expect that the body is Dorner. However, given that the media botched reporting on Sandy Hook, I will not trust news reports. Waiting for official confirmation from the authorities.

“Claim four lives”

The MSM may be walking back the last death, which some have speculated was blue on blue trigger happy crossfire.

Considering the trucks shot up in L.A., that bears looking at.

I thought his license was found near Mexico a few day before he went to Big Bear?

The officers then lobbed tear gas canisters into the cabin and blasted a message over a loudspeaker: "Surrender or come out."

To the very end, he was thus plagued with racist taunts!

The cabin was an inferno for hours. They body would have incinerated, even bones burned to a crisp. But we are supposed to be believe a plastic drivers license was found.
And I believe in the tooth fairy. Not saying he didn’t get burned to a crisp, but making possible identification is impossible.

The federal affidavit says "wallet and identification cards" were found by Detective Anschick, near the U.S. Mexico border.

It's a very powerful driver's license, apparently. Not only can it find its way unassisted from San Ysidro to Big Bear, but it can survive a fire that would reduce its owner to a charred lump of rendered fat. ;-)

I was certain of that myself, so I looked again this morning — they were very careful to always say only “ID” or “photo ID” there at the border, not “driver’s license”.

Scrape up the garbage and give it a DNA test. Then take the rest of it and feed it to the worms.

If he was in the basement he no doubt was sitting on the floor with his wallet in his back pocket against the cold concrete when he shot himself. There was no fire beneath him when the burning floor collapsed on top of his lifeless body. The fire wouldn’t reach through the wallet unless he was reduced to ashes.

Yea, well didn’t I read that his I.D. was found somewhere close to the Mexican border? Just sayin’...

I’m sure it’s him. But it would sure as hell be entertaining if it was found out that it was not him.

Through a stupid process known as “Affirmative Action”

If he was in the basement, there could be remains. There are many times after a house fire that there are items left that were done in the basement. Debris falls down on top of them as the fire rises above. The debris then insulates them from the fire above.

This is why if you a have a safe, you should bolt it to the floor in your basement. In many cases the items on the floor of the basement will survive the fire, where everything on the first or second floor is burned tro a crisp. Atleast that is what a buddy of mine who was in the fire dept for years told me.

I was wondering that too. Most home insurance policies have clauses ruling out “acts of war” and I think “civil unrest” too, but neither would seem to fit this.

You are right.

“After authorities interviewed the boat captain early Thursday, they found Dorner’s wallet and identification cards “at the San Ysidro Point of Entry” near the U.S.- Mexico border, according to the court records.”

Drudge has a report that the final assault using tear gas and vehicles was carried out by the LAPD SWAT. Why was LAPD given that role. San Bernadino and CHP have SWAT. I can’t see the NYPD ESU being given this role if a fugitive of this type were to show up 80 miles away in Riverhead, Suffolk County. There would be officers there to formally arrest the suspect and transport him back but I doubt Suffolk County PD would hand off the the apprehension role to the NYPD.

The fish cops who faced down pistol fire and then engaged him deserve a medal.
They may have disabled his truck or wounded him..at least they drove him to ground.

Two points: 1. Dorner was not to survive.
2. As far as SWAT teams go noe even the public library has one.

How does a man with a “DISHONORABLE” military discharge become or remain a police officer?

Is it a fact that he had a Dishonorable or is that a press report?

What I mean is that I often see the press report that somebody was dishonorably discharged from the military. From my days as a Personnelman (PN2) in the Navy who did discharges, I know that Dishonorables are extremely rare.

However, we had "Other than Honorable" and "Bad Conduct" discharges that were FAR more frequent, especially for what you would call a discipline case. To get a dishonorable, you would have to commit some very serious crimes. If you were a fighter, druggie, failed to follow orders, etc, you'd get an "OTH" or "BC" discharge.

I'm not saying he didn't get a Dishonorable. But I feel like when the media sees that somebody didn't get an Honorable discharge, they automatically assume it means he got a Dishonorable discharge.

It's just something that's bugged me over the years.

1) The cabin burns to the ground and everything in it is burned to a crisp,,,except his license?

2) And why would he keep his license on him? Was he worried they would give him a ticket if he didn’t have it?

3) 2:20 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 7: “A shuttle bus driver turns in a wallet with an LAPD badge and a picture ID of Dorner to San Diego police. The wallet was found fewer than five miles from the boat, near San Diego International Airport.”

So how many wallets did Dorner have?

“I was wondering that too. Most home insurance policies have clauses ruling out “acts of war” and I think “civil unrest” too, but neither would seem to fit this.”

My guess is that the homeowner will have to sue the LEO’s who set fire to her home, because they are not going to willingly pay to have it rebuilt. But in the end, after shelling out tens of thousands of bucks to their lawyers to try and avoid payment, they will have to pay with our money. Ditto for the trucks that they shot up!

From what I recall, he was both a police officer and a reservist, and was discharged from the military AFTER he was fired from the LAPD.

Right, this wasn't a forest fire or lightning, or an accident. It was deliberately set.

If their claim gets denied, I wonder if the cops will cough up $500K (or whatever it's worth). It's a little more than a shot up pick-up truck.

Dorner was HONORABLY discharged from the Navy on Feb 1, 2013, a few days before he began his shooting spree. He was terminated from the LAPD in 2008. I suspect his Navy termination is what set him off, and I get the impression that he blamed the LAPD for his Navy termination.

This works, but I was hoping the resolution of the matter would have been about 26 bullets to Dorner’s head.
