LOS ANGELES (AP) -- There was no question. The man standing before Rick Heltebrake on a rural mountain road was Christopher Dorner. Clad in camouflage from head to toe and wearing a bulletproof vest packed with ammunition, the most wanted man in America over the last week was just a few feet away, having emerged from a grove of trees holding a large, assault-style rifle.

“We did not burn it down on purpose”
Oh no thats why there are audio tapes of you cops yelling “burn the MF” and other choice tidbits with the words burn involved.
Lots of dead bodies floating in a sea of lies.
“Burners” are pyrotechnic Tear Gas canisters.
The barn was on fire.
>>We threatened to burn the barn if he did not surrender; at one time gave him ten minutes to make up his mind. Finally, Booth said, “Oh; Captain, there is a man here who wants to surrender awful bad:” I answered, and I think Mr. Baker did at the same time, “Hand out your arms.” Herold replied, “I have none.” Baker said, “We know exactly what you have got.” Booth replied, “I own all the arms, and intend to use them on you gentlemen.” After some little parley I said, “Let him out.” Some one objected. I ordered Garrett, the younger son, who had the key, to unlock the barn, which he did. I partially opened the door, and told Herold to put out his hand, which he did. I then told him to put [out] his other hand. I took hold of both his wrists and pulled him out of the barn. Almost simultaneous with my taking Herold out of the barn the hay in the rear of the barn was ignited by Mr. Conger, and the barn fired. Sergt. Boston Corbett, Company L, Sixteenth New York Cavalry, shot the assassin Booth, wounding him in the neck.<<
Worse , the liberal cult hero killed an unarmed women.
They could have used sarin gas on his dumb ass for all I care.
I hope he suffered greatly.
Exactly. The guy was a cop-killer. There’s an age-old American tradition of cop-killers not exactly making it far. This was hardly some wildly new scenario. It was downright expected. Just a shame an innocent cabin bit the dust.
Heck, I recall locally here in Texas, when I was in college, a couple of troopers were transporting a convicted multiple-murderer from one prison to another. Well, they stopped at a place for some coffee. And the handcuffed convict “supposedly” tried to escape by jumping out of the car and running into the woods. He had a bullet in his back before he got beyond sight of the car. Exit one scumbag. Nobody even made a stink!
So it is just a coincidence that the incident avoids a long drawn out, intensely covered trial of a black man in Los Angeles, with the chances of a riot at the end.
Pyrotechnic tear gas has been gone from the barricaded suspect repertoire for the past 30 years for exactly this reason. In the 60 s and 70s we burned down houses just about anytime the old Flight rite round went in.
Unacceptable today. Non-pyro aerosol rounds have been around for three decades. Micro crystallized CS blowers, etc.
But then again wild bursts of gun fire at innocent civilians is also considered impolite. My esteemed colleagues on the left coast seem to have lost their minds. They are after all creatures and products of their parent political systems.
It's what happens when apologists issue apologias, rather than demanding government officials act according to law.
Ya know, in some ways I agree with you.
There was a time when I believed that what I heard reported was the truth, today I'm not so sure.
I find today I have have skepticism on just about everything.
Sad to say ;(
Not doubting you, but where do we have proof of this term meaning what you say it means? I have seen that said today, but no collaboration of where to go look for the facts.
Not so sad, imo. It shows you can still learn. I go by this dictum:
"The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it" - George Bernard Shaw, 1856 - 1950
Very nice and concise!
TheMom sez howdy back.
See ya at the Shoot??
It's called plausible deny-ability.
So is the sheriff lying about the fire not being intentional, in your opinion?
Yep..we will be there! Can’t wait to see everybody!!
