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 right, you are a fool and you should stop.
The tactics used by the police from the beginning of this effort were questionable and put numerous additional lives at risk. The lives of innocents.
Please tell me, at what point in your questionable grasp of the relevant details does one earn the right to be provoked?
It’s all very well and good to be polite, but do you really expect to be treated as a good faith participant in this thread went you attempt to draw parallels such as you have?
Was an LAPD SWAT team on site at the cabin?
Yes or no?
You do know that he had already killed and wounded police officers, don't you? So intent to kill on his part is clear to anyone with an IQ. Are you saying that he hadn't killed and engaged in a gunfight with authorities?
The U.S. Supreme Court has held that reasonableness under the fourth amendment does not require police officers to choose the least intrusive alternative, only a reasonable one. Following that principle, most courts have rejected arguments that the use of deadly force was not necessary because officers had less intrusive options available or it was made necessary by the actions of the officers themselves.
Surprised they were taken off of speed trap duty. Must have wanted to try some new toys out.
Go play some video games with the $cumßags:
You keep saying I support what he did and yet I have never said that. Instead I have condemned his actions. I have also questioned the police tactics since they injured and endangered numerous innocents.
You are a liar and continue to use these lies when you know its false. That is something the leftists liars do.
You aren’t worth any more time.
