The training officer whose dispute with former Los Angeles police Officer Christopher Dorner led to his firing said Thursday it was her hunch that led police to name him as the suspect in the killing of an Orange County couple, setting off an intense and deadly manhunt that ended with Dorner's suicide in a mountain cabin.
(snip) "Just hearing his name was enough to make me feel sick," [Teresa] Evans said in an interview the Los Angeles Times.

we gots to talk about the guy in South Africa....
She knew he wasn’t qualified and was going to write him up.
Dorner knew it and concocted the false abuse charge to try and save his job.
His ruse failed. He went postal.
Not buying this story.
The guy put out on on-line manifesto.
Her alleged ‘tip’ was irrelevant.
(1) Dorner was certainly ‘over the edge’. Whether self-inflicted or artificially induced, it can be hard to tell.
(2) This article reporting on the trainer’s hunch seems just to have too much sugar coating on it to be true.
According to the article, the tip put them on to the manifesto.
There's a guy from Kenya whose name does that to me.
Indeed, ‘according to the article’ being the key phrase...
How likely to be true is that claim?
Looks like the Police were already on the job...
The day after the killing, the police called her woth Dorner info and her name in his notebook.
“Evans told the Los Angeles Times Thursday ( ) that police near San Diego called her Feb. 4, to say they had found some of Dorner’s belongings, and his notebook included Evans’ name. It was the day after the daughter of an ex-LAPD captain and her fiance were found dead.” http://lat.ms/X05dHQ
According to WRAL, Anderson Cooper received a package from Dorner on the First. That was two days before the killing.
“LOS ANGELES Law enforcement officials are inspecting a package CNN’s Anderson Cooper received from a former Los Angeles police officer who allegedly killed three in a shooting spree.
CNN spokeswoman Shimrit Sheetrit said Thursday that a parcel containing a note, a DVD and a bullet hole-riddled memento were sent by Christopher Dorner and addressed to Cooper’s office.
LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith says LAPD robbery-homicide detectives will inspect the package for clues.
The package arrived Feb. 1, days before the first two killings Dorner is accused of.
It contained a note on it that read, in part, “I never lied.”
Dorner was fired from the LAPD in 2008 for making false statements.
A coin typically given out as a souvenir by the police chief was also in the package, and riddled with bullet holes.”
I wonder if the police are going to pay out that million dollar reward or will there be a million dollar excuse why they shouldn’t .
The BIG unanswered question is did TO Evans assault a handcuffed subject
as Dorner claimed. In the late 70’s I worked in a barrio hospital on the east
side of LA. I spent a LOT of time with ER patients. I saw many instances of
LAPD officers abusing in custody people...both verbally and physically.
That line “oops, he tripped” was true. It just never included the cause....which often was an officers foot. Many of the patients seen in the ER were
low life sub species.....and many of the officers that accompanied them were no more civilized.
You say that like it’s a bad thing
Exactly, and the way I read this is that it also messed up the killer. It seems to me that he was planning to quietly, methodically kill the people on the list, then escape to Mexico. This tip forced him out, and led to his early demise.
I believe that he was quite incompetent. He stole a boat, and then couldn't even pilot it out of the slip. He then drove into the mountains and then got stuck and broke his car. He tied up the cabin owners, and one immediately got loose. These are not the acts of the Rambo described in the press.
I am in no way defending Christopher Dorner and at the same time there is no way on this earth I would accept the LAPD’s “facts”.
Well, maybe he was framed. Good. He was not a folk hero. He was an unstable, dangerous nut. He murdered the daughter of the lawyer who didn’t save his job to punish him for not saving his job. Do you really want a guy like this pulling you over? The only good thing about it are his well documented leftist credentials.
That is exactly where I am at with this story. Plus the L.A. Times is the local paper for the trifecta.
Obviously, the ravings of a lunatic. (last page, I skipped to the end). I think I will make time to read the whole thing.
I always hated the way the press would tell me what someone said, even (and especially) when I heard them say it and the press got it wrong.
