    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The city of Los Angeles reached a $4.2 million settlement on injury claims by two women who were injured when police mistakenly opened fire on them during the manhunt for disgruntled ex-cop Christopher Dorner, an official said Tuesday. City Attorney Carmen Trutanich announced the sum to KNBC-TV Los Angeles, and an attorney representing the women confirmed the amount to The Associated Press. The settlement must still be approved by the Los Angeles City Council. Margie Carranza and her 71-year-old mother, Emma Hernandez, were delivering papers around 5 a.m. on Feb. 7 when LAPD officers blasted at...

    The Los Angeles Police Department ceased to be an active force for justice on March 4, 1991, when George Holliday turned over his amateur video of Rodney King’s arrest to the Los Angeles TV station KTLA. With tape in hand, the media began what the late Christopher Dorner might call a surge of “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against the LAPD and police departments everywhere. As in the Trayvon Martin case, the media edited and presented the tape to reinforce its favorite template: evil white racists oppress innocent minority. I say “asymmetrical” because in the King case, unlike the Martin case,...

    PolicyMic ^ | February 12, 2013 | Tom McKay, Associate Politics Editor
    Media sources expressed confusion as to the status of Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles Police Department officer now accused of killing four people including two cops. Dorner was allegedly chased to a Big Bear Lake cabin after being spotted by authorities in the area, a chase that resulted in the death of one officer. Now, as the cabin where "hundreds" of bullets were exchanged burns down, it is unclear whether Dorner is dead, alive, captured, or hiding out...

    The Washington Times ^ | February 12, 2013 | Tiffany Madison, Citizen Warrior
    Christopher Dorner, the former police officer turned alleged murderer of three has shifted the nation’s attention to the historically corrupt Los Angeles Police Department. In his publicly released manifesto, he claims the LAPD destroyed his life, ruined his relationships and military career by siding with a white officer he reported for excessive force. An internal affairs investigation concluded the claim was false and he was released, but Dorner has set out to redeem himself and retaliate against the force and its bureaucratic protectors. He claims the conspirators participating in the police department’s rotten culture, institutionalized discrimination, are fair game for...

    One of the deputies involved in a gun battle Tuesday afternoon with fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner has died of his wounds, law enforcement sources told The Times. The San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to the sources. Another deputy was also wounded in the shootout near a cabin where Dorner was believed to be holed up in the snow-covered mountains near Big Bear. His condition was not immediately known. The afternoon gun battle in which hundreds of rounds were exchanged was part of a quickly...

    The press is convinced that conservatives do not like them because of conjured up, imaginary reasons. That couldn’t be further from the truth. This past week, the press gave us yet another example of why conservatives have legitimate reason to hate them. Monday, one of the best media critics in America, Howard Kurtz, wrote a column at CNN.com about conservatives blaming the liberal media for the nut in California. His column included this: Now it’s true that some on the left tried to tar Palin when Jared Loughner opened fire in a Phoenix shopping center, killing six people and wounding...

    Some manhunts can take a few days. Others, years. With hundreds of officers deployed across Southern California looking out for accused cop-killer Christopher Dorner, there's no telling how long this one might last. "We've had cases where fugitives have been captured in a day, a week, a month," FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. "But certainly, there's an urgency here because of the ongoing threat." Dorner, a former Los Angeles Police Department officer, has targeted cops in a manifesto he issued online as a vendetta for his dismissal from the department. He is accused of killing a Riverside police officer in...

Christopher Dorner, 33, a former Los Angeles police officer and naval reservist, has been on the run for five days after allegedly threatening on Facebook "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" on Los Angeles Police. Doran today has been charged with the murder of police officer Michael Crain, one of the three people he allegedly killed. Dorner has also been charged with three counts of attempted murder, for allegedly shooting at three other police officers, said Paul Zellerbach, district attorney for...

    Thy Black Man ^ | February 11, 2013 | Staff
    Christopher Dorner is a canvas onto which we can project our national anxieties and obsessions. Christopher Dorner is racialized as an African American. He is gendered as a male. Christopher Dorner represents authority, conformity, and State power, as a (former) police officer. Those identities are intersectional. For some, Christopher Dorner is a hero who dared to speak truth to power and run ramshackle over the LAPD and those he identified as his enemies. To them, Dorner has Eric Hobsbawn’s “social banditry” flowing in his veins. For others, he is a criminal who went “crazy” and offered up a manifesto like...

    For all we know, it could be happening right now--high above the pine line a robot hovers, looking down. On suspicions that at-large cop vigilante Christopher Dorner is holed up east of Los Angeles in the rugged and snowy San Bernardino Mountains, law enforcement officials have apparently taken to aerial spy drones, in addition to ramping up drone surveillance along the Mexico border, to find the man. Word of the move broke this weekend in a report in the Express. An unnamed senior police source told the British outlet that certain drone-ready thermal imaging capabilities may offer the only hope...

    Why should the lives of law enforcement agents be risked to apprehend this suspected domestic terrorist? A major manhunt has been underway in the Los Angeles area for Chris Dorner, the former LAPD officer, Navy reservist, and trained marksman who is the prime suspect in the murder of three people, including the daughter of an LAPD captain (who previously represented him in a disciplinary proceeding) and her fiance. A lengthy Facebook message attributed to Dorner vows that he will continue to kill not only members of the LAPD but also their children and spouses until he receives a public apology...

    One of three victims in police attacks meant for fugitive Christopher Dorner is speaking out through his attorney, who calls Torrance police officers "violent and reckless" for shooting at and detaining him. After all, David Perdue is a thin white man who looks nothing like Dorner. And he was questioned and released by officers just moments before another officer slammed a patrol car into his truck and fired shots at him. Perdue left his Redondo Beach home and was driving through Torrance to the beach for some early morning surfing on Thursday when he was stopped. Officers guarding the home...

    I have, at times, been accused of being somewhat naive when it comes to modern culture, both by family members and readers alike. Perhaps you’re all on to something there, because I certainly never saw this coming. As the search continues for alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner, there is an emerging theme – at least on the West Coast – that perhaps Dorner is some sort of Robin Hood, standing up for the little guy and taking it to the corrupt LA police force.

    In the past several days, we’ve learned about how you too can gain a degree of public sympathy if you plan to embark on a killing spree and then go into hiding as you bide your time waiting to kill again: Write a “manifesto” dominated by anti-police rants, a “progressive” outlook towards Second Amendment freedoms and support for leftist politicians. That’s what former Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Dorner, who is accused of killing Monica Quan, Keith Lawrence, and an as yet unnamed LAPD officer while wounding two others, has done. His sympathy-by-manifesto strategy has been alarmingly successful. Dorner’s...

    Christopher Dorner, the ex-LAPD cop who allegedly killed three people has been on the run, successfully evading police, for over a week. To finally track him down, it seems that law enforcement is pulling out all the stops. According to the Express, Dorner is now a target for drones, among the first ever on U.S. soil. The Express quotes a "senior police source" as having said: The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz, a joint...

    The hunt for alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner has turned into a major public relations challenge for law enforcement officials, in particular the Los Angeles Police Department working its way back from a history of corruption and abuse. Not only have hundreds of well-trained officers equipped with military-style vehicles – including helicopters with thermal imaging devices one pilot says can pick out a rabbit in a snowstorm – been unable to find the man charged with killing three people and wounding two others on a rampage aimed at police officers and their families. The LAPD also has been forced to...

Speaking on the “CBS Morning News” today, Miller said he has talked with Los Angeles police and found them to “have an anxiety factor that is unbelievable.” Miller said Dorner probably did...

    There's been a gulf between the Christopher Dorner that friends called "friendly" and "positive," and the Christopher Dorner who this week became a real-life Rambo who went on a rampage targeting law enforcement. But now information emerging in court documents and interviews paints a more complex picture of Dorner and his emotional struggles. Ex-girlfriend Ariana Williams told ABC 7 that she was initially attracted to Dorner, who was outgoing and friendly. But she became troubled by his paranoia. Williams told he had guns all over her house: "He'd be in the bed and there'd be one by the bed. There'd...

    The ex-cop accused of three revenge killings left behind a long manifesto outlining all of his grievances and observations. That manifesto has given investigators some clues, but they still don’t know where is Christopher Dorner. Law enforcement spent four hours searching his mom’s Orange County home. They took out 10 grocery bags filled with evidence. Dorner lost his job with the Los Angeles Police Department in 2008. His manifesto vows revenge for that; and, surprisingly, thousands of people actually support him. It’s hard to believe but there are those out there who sympathize with the man targeting police officers. One...

    The massive dragnet for a fugitive ex-cop continued Friday, with more than 100 officers conducting a fruitless search in the snowy, forested mountains around Big Bear Lake for an armed gunman who police say is on a vengeful rampage. As the falling snow piled up, authorities pledged to continue the manhunt until they find Christopher Jordan Dorner, the 33-year-old former Los Angeles police officer suspected of killing three people, or stumble on definitive evidence that he is no longer in the area. The trail has gone cold since Dorner's Nissan Titan pickup was found Thursday morning engulfed in flames on...

    PowerLine ^ | February 8, 2013 | Paul Mirengoff
    I have long considered it ridiculous to report the political/social ravings of deranged murderers like Jared Loughner, the Tucson shooter. The salient point about these people is their derangement, not its ideological manifestation (ideology actually being too serious a word in these cases). And publicizing the ideological manifestation gives the lunatic a forum he doesn’t deserve. I’ve also believed that the publication by journalists of the political ravings of murderers is opportunistic. That is, biased journalists seek political advantage by trying (often in the most attenuated way) to connect the ravings with right-wing thinking. Confirmation of my latter thesis can...

    Alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner has vanished. More than 24 hours after Dorner allegedly shot and killed one police officer and injured two others, police say they have no idea where the former cop with a vendetta against police has gone. "He could be anywhere at this point," Sheriff John McMahon of the San Bernadino County Sheriff's Department said today. Police are also trying to determine whether Dorner left his burning car on the side of Big Bear Mountain and earlier dropped his badge in San Diego as diversionary tactics to distract police. Wherever Dorner is, law enforcement officials fear that...
