Posted on 02/13/2013 3:00:36 PM PST by Repeat Offender
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:
"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.

You're kidding, right? You give yourself a high five for the ability to cut and paste a tangentially related article on deadly force from the online free legal dictionary like you're the second coming of Blackwell?
I have a four year old to deal with right now. I'll be back to eviscerate your "football bat" reasoning when time and obligation permit.
We've already established the fact that you aren't very bright. There is no need to reinforce the fact.
I have a four year old to deal with right now
I'm positive you could learn plenty from a four year old, hotshot! LOL!
N00b, if you’re too stupid to see the tactical differences between the two cases, it’s not my fault, nor is it my burden to educate you.
IMO, arguing with a person who endorses arson as a law enforcement tool is just a form of sticking your neck out. Just be grateful to learn that the cops view arson as a legitimate form of deadly force against civilians.
Who might that be, criminal apologist?
You, adolescent name caller.
You can post quotes that I've made to corroborate your allegation that I support arson as a law enforcement tool? Or are you going to slink off like a cowardly, lying criminal apologist POS?
I despise LIARS!
I really don’t care what your opinion of me is, and I’m sure the sentiment is mutual.
It's not an opinion it is a fact. You are a despicable,bald-faced liar.
That doesn't even hold a candle to this post to me ...
Like I said, I don't care what you say, what you think, etc. I don't find your remarks to be persuasive, and IMO, you are damaging to the very cause you think you are supporting. You come off as a hot head, action before thought.
- would rather believe and spread lies than accept the truth ... includes you, oh, most definitely it includes you.
- you post against the truth on numerous threads.
- you are tiresome and tiring. You are old, worn out, rung out, dry. Not you but your tiresome falsehoods.
- you [are] with the worst of the worst we have here, because of what I see repeated and repeated, right in league with the meanest, lowdown prevaricators and vilest language talkers, who wouldn't care about the truth if their grandmother's lives hung in the balance on it.
We've already established the fact that you are a despicable, bald-faced liar. Now you apparently are going for lowlife sum of the earth.
You come off as a hot head
I despise LIARS and false accusers. You're too cowardly to admit that you lied. You disgust me.
FWIW, the feeling is mutual. We both think of the other as cowardly, low life and a liar. Neither of us is going to admit the other is right, so we are at a stand off.
What are you going to do now? Come and burn me out? LOL. Carry on, hot shot.
You are in fact.
That plus shooting 30x? at a 'suspect (different color) truck' and we are to believe a cop didn't kick a homeless man?
Now that can't be right. You plagiarized the article on "deadly force" from an online legal dictionary. That makes you a "liar" and thief by definition.
I'll let you in on a little secret....want to know how I knew you'd stolen that quote from an online source so quickly?
You're not smart enough to come up with it on your own, and you don't know what it means, anyway.
"Greater leeway" does not mean "carte blanche," genius.
I know I won't be changing your mind here, but I've always believed "stupid should hurt," so I'm just going to enjoy myself by knocking the crap out of your puerile excuses even if your aren't smart enough to recognize when you've been totally outclassed.
No liar, I didn't claim it was mine. You criminal apologists are so desperate and pathetic.
What exactly is it that you don't understand about, "The police may use all the force that is necessary to overcome resistance, even if that means killing the person they are trying to arrest", hotshot?
Yes you did, moron. Unless you give attribution to the original source, you are, in fact, claiming it as your own.
That you don't know that is even further proof you need to leave discussions of public policy to the grown-ups.
Why do you find it necessary to lie? Do you enjoy being humiliated, hotshot?
