Police Appeared To Shout 'Burn This Mother' Down Before Fire Engulfed Rogue Ex-Cop's Cabin
Business Insider Military & Defense ^ | 13 Feb 13 | Paul Szoldra

A six-day California manhunt ended Tuesday with rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner apparently dying in a cabin fire on Bear Mountain.

One of many big questions to be answered is how the deadly fire was started.

Multiple unconfirmed audio clips appear to show police officers talking about burning down the cabin in which the alleged cop-killer was hiding.

Deliberately starting a fire, rather than waiting out the suspect, could be seen as an extreme measure.

In an unconfirmed video showing live footage from KCAL9 Los Angeles, officers are apparently caught in the background around the 20 second mark saying, "burn that f------ house down." It continues:

[Inaudible]

"Burn him out!"

"Get to him right now, f------ burn this motherf-----!"

Another unconfirmed video posted to YouTube of television coverage from CBS 2 captures officers apparently saying, "burn it down, burn it down ... get the gas." Another officer says, "yeah, burn it down." The exchange happens around the 1:24 mark:

The Guardian reports that journalist Max Blumenthal was listening to the police scanners, and live-tweeting the event.

On the scanners, Blumenthal reports hearing an exchange where the police talk about using "burners." The Daily Caller is reporting that is police slang for tear gas.

"All right, Steve, we're gonna go, we're gonna go forward with the plan, with the burner."

"Copy," is the response.

"We want it, like we talked about."

"Seven burners deployed and we have a fire," says the first voice.

"Copy. Seven burners deployed and we have a fire," responds a female voice.

At this rate, homeowners and vehicle owners will soon be government mandated to purchase LAPD insurance.

Maybe Rodney King was right, looks like the LAPD is turning into the Kripo (Nazi era “criminal police”). A side note, that still is no excuse for the LA riots of 1992 though.

It was not the LAPD.

It was the San Bernadino Sheriff’s Department.

Nice home/vehicle you have here... it’d be a shame if something happened to it.

They also told news choppers to turn off their live cameras, then told them to leave.

Awesome. They saved California tax-payers Millions of dollars and a media circus trial where this cop-killer would no doubt be glorified by the media and end up with thousands of sympathizers, mostly black, who would then riot upon his conviction.

He would then die of old age on Death Row.

I am sometimes critical of the cops but this time I can’t blame them a bit.

Just another WACO...They had absolutely no intention of taking him alive. The LAPD is now free of another witness.

Police Appeared To Shout 'Burn This Mother' Down

A little like shouting "Allah Ahkbar" before firing into the crowd.

So, if he died from the fire, was shot by the police, or took his own life......in the words of Hillary Clinton: “What difference does it make?”

One big difference, the people at waco hadnt commited any crimes let alone multie murders.

Still this was an execution by the police.

And a deputy was killed. I would have brought the gasoline.

This guy got exactly what he wanted - suicide by cop.

It could just as likely have been suicide by cop. My attitude about Dorner is “play stupid games, win stupid prizes”.

The thought crossed my mind that the reason for this was because they planned to send in a drone or two -- there's a drone base in San Bernardino.

It wouldn’t have happened then if there wasn’t a media scheduling conflict with Hussein’s speech.

Shooting him maybe, they burned the house intentionally. Which is murder.

I didn't read his manifesto, but from the various news and commentary, I thought his beef was with the LAPD.

By holding up in San Bernadino, he involved their leo's. He killed one of their leo's and wounded another. He brought the 'battle' to them -- and they finished it.
