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.

McMahon did not say directly that the tear gas started the blaze, and the cause of the fire remained unclear.
A charred body was found in the basement, 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 probe.
Not just any assault rifle, but a LARGE assault rifle.
I look forward to continued excellent professionalism and accuracy from the authorities.
Yeah sure. And I am the sugar plum fairy on meth.
It was getting dark and they wanted to make damn sure he couldn't create a diversion and escape after dark.
Its called Ambivalent Projected Immolation. API.
Pay no attention to that man shouting behind the curtain.
The guy asked for - and recieved - suicide by cop. A fate often sought by these spree killers.
So I guess when I heard them say on the scanner that they were ‘going with burn plan’ ....then a few minutes later...’burners deployed’ and then ‘we have fire’, I was just hearing things or misunderstanding. Got it.
I heard it all in real time yesterday with my own ears.
"7 burners deployed and we have a fire..."
Perhaps the sheriff can enlighten us on the context and meaning of that statement.
It was humongous!
Woo woo, woo woo woo!
No, my name is not Laura Pruden!
“Not just any assault rifle, but a LARGE assault rifle.”
That caught my attention too. Like the bigger, the more assaulty and stuff
What? Are you going to believe the Sheriff or your own lying ears?
Considering no one has posted an audio clip yet, I take it with a grain of salt.
I wonder how many civilian posses burned outlaws out of their hideouts only to dangle them from the nearest tree?
Last time it happened in my little town was about 150 years ago. As I understand the story a rapist was hiding in a barn so the locals torched it. He ran out and ended up hanging from a bridge less than 100 yards from where I sit.
Imagine an arsonist saying “officer, I didn’t intend to burn the house down. I just covered the inside with gasoline and walked away.”
