Ex-cop manhunt: Fresh tracks found in Big Bear snow
LAT ^ | February 7, 2013 | 3:27pm

Posted on 02/07/2013 4:28:36 PM PST by BenLurkin

Authorities in Big Bear have spotted fresh tracks believed to be those of a fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer wanted in connection with a series of shootings and are combing the area for him, a Fire Department official told The Times.

Big Bear Lake Fire Department Asst. Chief Mark Mills also said the burning pickup discovered on a forest road has been linked to Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, sought in connection with a series of shootings that have left three people dead and two wounded.

TV helicopters showed the pickup being readied to be towed from the scene.

The truck was discovered hours into an intensive manhunt for Dorner that spanned Southern California. Although sources said there had been multiple reported sightings of Dorner's truck in the Big Bear area on Thursday, the burnt truck was too badly charred to immediately confirm it was his.

Meanwhile, the mountain community locked down schools and closed the nearby Bear Mountain Resort as a fatigue-clad SWAT team walked through the woods, rifles drawn.

Sean Jacques, director of loss prevention for Big Bear Mountain Resorts, said that after the burning truck was discovered on a forest service road, local law enforcement told resort officials to keep an eye out for Dorner and provided a description of the suspect.

When someone writes something described as a “manifesto”, the story usually doesn’t end well.
I expect to see this Obama loving POS taking a few innocents out with him.

Democratic Underground is holding him up as a folk hero after reading his manifesto.

100% unsurprised here.

"As with the Unibomber, liberals will find much to agree with in his manifesto."

As with the unibomber, sane people will find it the work of a fevered mind. Certainly Kaczynski was off his beam, but there is much in his manifesto that would not look out of place on FR, particularly in regards to his observations on the psychology of modern leftism, feminism, homosexuals, etc. Just one example:

Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong, good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality. The reasons that leftists give for hating the West, etc. clearly do not correspond with their real motives. They SAY they hate the West because it is warlike, imperialistic, sexist, ethnocentric and so forth, but where these same faults appear in socialist countries or in primitive cultures, the leftist finds excuses for them, or at best he GRUDGINGLY admits that they exist; whereas he ENTHUSIASTICALLY points out (and often greatly exaggerates) these faults where they appear in Western civilization. Thus it is clear that these faults are not the leftist's real motive for hating America and the West. He hates America and the West because they are strong and successful.

I wonder what DUmmies think of his upper echelon anti-male lesbians accusations (He even threw in the word "misogynist" in there, lol) of targeting males?

Gotta admit he’s got a point there. But most of the Unibomber’s manifesto was from a leftist perspective, wasn’t it?

I believe his manifesto said he had manpads.

A couple of years ago, a local guy killed his girl friend then another guy. I don’t remember the details but the other guy was apparently just in the wrong place.

He went into the woods near a river. Even here in Florida it gets cold at night so I figured he might succumb to the elements.

Unfortunately again if my memory is right, an leo with a tracking dog found him, then got into a shootout and the bad guy won with a .22 rifle. Of course then his time was over and a bunch of lawmen killed him.

It turned out he had been camping in a tent and even building fires.

He could be self-delusional full of s***. He believes he has the skill of Rambo or Superman but reality may slap him that he isn’t as skilled as he claims.

He definitely has a separation from reality and consequences as indicated in part by the section where he talks about the guy using the ‘n’ word and wishing he had just shot the guy. There is no sense of scale of his reaction to what he was reacting to. To him, killing someone is equal in consequence to using an insulting word.

Along these same lines, more than a few liberals found Timothy McVeigh sympathetic after reading his writings in which he characterized the United States as an imperialistic bully. Towards the end, McVeigh was writing letters to arch leftist Gore Vidal asking him to take his case to the public.

It was all over the political spectrum, but when I first read it, I was kind of scared at how much I actually agreed with...especially the first half or so; he kind of breaks left in the latter sections. In the lead up to the 2000 election there was a cutesy little quiz going around the internet asking people to identify various quote as being from either algore's "Earth In The Balance" or from the Unibomber Manifesto. While amusing, I cringed, because the left could have just as easily pulled quotes and asked if they came from Limbaugh or Robert Bork.

Could be, but his bio and his Navy awards and ribbons aren't something you get in crackerjacks or at Sunday school.

He's got the training.

Right, which sort of illustrates why this kind of ideological witch hunting really isn’t fair. The only good reason to do it is to punish the left for doing it, to rub it back in their faces, because they do it so freaking much and with the force of the media.

I think that it was LAPD who was guarding the lapd home that shot the blue Toyota Tacoma. Torrance was responding to shots fired call and crashed into the black Honda Ridgeline, then missed the driver with at least 3 shots. The police were very lucky this morning as were the unfortunate drivers.

I have a bayonet from a Swiss STG-57. I have the case for it and the frog. It looks really nice sort of like Sykes/Fairebairne fighting knife. It is either chromed or stainless steel.

If I could get someone to come sit in front of me I could maybe hurt him badly.

Actually that was LAPD operating in Torrance. Big Bear is expecting a snow storm tomorrow with maybe 6” of snow. The high will be around 30 and the low maybe 18. I bet he is off the mountain by now.

I don’t believe that he has Manpads either but I think the possibility of him possessing the Barrett has LE in a quandary. If he does hole up in high ground I wonder if Dorner will be the first US soil drone strike kill.

One guy, pissed off, maybe crazy, but trained. One psyops screed that will be the birth of PhD studies. Several people shot and killed. Some shot by the 'good' cops.

For that, the southern half of California is in a state of alert. You couldn't drive a straight pin up a LAPD cop's arse with a sledge hammer right now, and the media is focused on one single man with a firearm or 7.

I'd say his asymetric warfare thing is working out fairly well for him. He's probably already cost millions in overtime charges on time cards.
