    ight Los Angeles police officers who mistakenly opened fire on Los Angeles Times newspaper delivery women thinking they were rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner in 2013 will not be criminally charged, the L.A. County district attorney’s office announced Wednesday. The officers opened fire in the predawn hours of Feb. 7, 2013, as Margie Carranza and her mother, Emma Hernandez, were slowly cruising though a Torrance neighborhood in a pickup truck delivering papers. Law enforcement officers around the region were on edge during the massive manhunt for Dorner, the ex-LAPD officer who sought vengeance against police officials he blamed for his firing....

    Serious gaps in communication and coordination by police agencies across California stymied last years manhunt for ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner and revealed weaknesses that could be exploited by more a formidable foe, according to a report issued Monday. Read the KNBC story on the new report. In some ways, Dorner was an anomaly -- a well-armed attacker who knew police tactics, stated the report from the Police Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based research group. But police chiefs and county sheriffs involved in the incident agree that a small force of knowledgeable terrorists bent on creating havoc could easily replicate such attacks....

    In pursuit of a dangerous black male killer, Los Angeles Police Department officers mistook two Latina woman for the suspect and fired one hundred shots. Then, Torrance Officer Brian McGee thought he saw the suspects vehicle and rammed into it at full speed, nearly killing the innocent driver, David Perdue, a white man. McGee also fired three shots at Perdue. But L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey has decided not to press charges against McGee, since his error was a reasonable mistake.

    A Torrance police officer who opened fire on a pickup truck during the manhunt for former Los Angeles police Officer Christopher Dorner was justified in his actions and will not face any criminal charges, the District Attorney's Office announced today. Prosecutors concluded that Officer Brian McGee "did not commit any criminal misconduct" on Feb. 7 of last year when he rammed David Perdue's truck with a patrol car, then fired three shots through the driver's side window. According to a charge evaluation worksheet prepared by Deputy District Attorney Geoffrey Rendon, McGee acted reasonably in light of the ongoing search for...

    American Thinker ^ | September 20, 2013 | Jack Cashill
    In the search for parallels to explain Aaron Alexis's killing spree at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, the media have turned reflexively to recent incidents in Aurora, Colorado, and Sandy Hook, Connecticut. Almost no one in the media, however, has made the obvious comparison to Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles Police Department officer who killed four people and wounded three others in a ten-day spree last February that ended with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Although the most visible point of comparison is race and gender -- black and male -- both were born in New York City within...

    SAN BERNARDINO ( The owner of a Barton Flats cabin has filed a claim against San Bernardino County saying sheriffs deputies allowed it to burn during a standoff with rouge former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner. Candice Martin is seeking $420,000, alleging deputies made no effort to save her cabin in the 40000 block of Seven Oaks Road on February 13. Following a 10-day manhunt, Dorner barricaded himself inside the structure, shooting two deputies, killing Detective Jeremiah MacKay and seriously injuring Deputy Alex Collins. The vacation rental caught fire after authorities fired tear gas inside. Martin, of Palmdale,...

    The findings, which are expected to be made public this month at a Los Angeles Police Commission meeting, concluded that Dorner had a history of embellishing stories, misperceiving slights and making bogus complaints against his fellow officers, Rice said. He took more than twice as long as most officers to complete his training, was nearly incomprehensible during the hearing over his firing, and only filed a complaint against his training officer when he learned she gave him a bad performance review, Rice said.
  • Dorner Carjacking Victim Files Injunction To Stop Distribution Of $1.2M Reward

    LOS ANGELES ( The attorney for a Big Bear-area camp ranger whose truck was carjacked by Christopher Dorner is expected to file an injunction Friday to prevent a $1.2 million reward from being distributed. Rick Heltebrake claims his 911 call on Feb. 12 led authorities to Dorners whereabouts before the quadruple-murder suspect ultimately barricaded himself inside a cabin and took his own life. I believe it was my call that directly led the end of the largest manhunt in California history, Heltebrake said. The Los Angeles Police Department announced Tuesday that three parties, excluding, Heltebrake, will split the reward...

    LOS ANGELES ( The Los Angeles Police Department Tuesday said three parties will split the $1 million reward offered during the manhunt for rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner. In a document posted online, the department said a three-judge panel decided 80 percent of the money will go to Jim and Karen Reynolds, the couple who managed to call 911 after they were tied up by Dorner at their Big Bear condo. Fifteen percent of the reward will go to ski resort employee Daniel McGowan, who found Dorners burned-out pickup truck on the side of a remote Big Bear Lake road,...

    LOS ANGELES | Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:38pm EDT (Reuters) - The city of Los Angeles will pay $4.2 million to a mother and daughter who were caught in a hail of bullets in February when police mistook their truck for one driven by renegade ex-policeman Christopher Dorner and opened fire, officials said on Tuesday. The settlement, which allows both sides to avoid a trial, brings the Los Angeles Police Department nearer to closing what had been an embarrassing chapter in its search for Dorner. The department still is reviewing the actions of two officers.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) As a cabin smoldered with the body of rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner inside, politicians in a city that lost an officer to his rampage approved a $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest and conviction. The Riverside City Council voted unanimously with little discussion and no debate, even after being told the fugitive's demise was likely to be announced soon. News of the vote was dwarfed by Dorner's death after a week on the run, but the city made headlines this week when it said it wouldn't pay its slice of the massive $1.2 million...

    When cop killer Christopher Dorner was on the loose and terrorizing southern California, some 30 groups joined together to put a $1 million price on his head. But after the former LAPD officer killed himself while barricaded in a mountain cabin in February, some of those groups have gotten stingy. A law enforcement union became the latest of the contributors to voice second thoughts about its $60,000 share of the reward, following a similar decision by the city of Riverside to withdraw its pledge of $100,000. With Dorner dead and no shortage of prospective claims to the pot, it seems...

    RIVERSIDE ( The city of Riverside is pulling its portion of the $1.2 million reward offered for the capture and conviction of ex-Los Angeles police officer and accused killer Christopher Dorner. The city pledged $100,000 to the reward fund after Riverside police officer Michael Crain was reportedly killed by Dorner on Feb. 7 while on routine patrol. Cain, 34, was among four people killed by the fugitive before he died in a standoff and fire in a Big Bear cabin on Feb. 25. Officer Michael Crain, an 11-year veteran of the force, was shot and killed allegedly by Christopher...

    The Chris Dorner case is very interesting. It is strange how the media beats a dead horse when some criminal minority is killed doing something stupid and claims his/her civil rights were violated (i.e. Travon, that shoplifter girl who tried to run over a cop and got shot) and then spreads the story nationwide. So, why has the Chris Dorner story almost complete died? I have some questions to ask: 1. Where's the continuing 24/7 media coverage of this case and the causes of the event? The man was black. He managed to publish his views that he had suffered...

    The California camp ranger carjacked by ex-cop turned fugitive Christopher Dorner last month has filed a lawsuit seeking claim to the entire $1.2 million reward leading to his capture. Rick Heltebrake, who was robbed at gunpoint by Dorner while driving on a Big Bear-area road last month, has filed his suit against the city of Los Angeles claiming that it was his 911 phone call that led to Dorner's cornering. The full-time Boy Scouts ranger's life was spared during that carjacking while allowed to safely exit his truck and later call 911. According to his claim, it was that call...

    With the Christopher Dorner case, the role of prescription psychotropic drugs in mass killings has again come to the forefront. Numerous articles have approached the role of so-called "psych meds" in causing depraved and indifferent violent behavior, but one in particular deserves attention because it highlights the fact that among psychiatric professionals there is no coherent understanding of what needs to be done after we take people off of drugs that are prescribed for their psychiatric illnesses. The article -- Jon Rappoport's "Is Christopher Dorner Another Psychiatric Killer?" -- makes a number of important points about the former Los Angeles...

    Police typically say that their top mission is to protect public safety. Thats the lingo. But the recently concluded manhunt for former Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Dorner, accused of murdering four people after releasing a manifesto decrying his 2008 firing from the force, suggests that concern about the publics actual safety sometimes is fairly low on the list of police priorities.Last weekend, police opened fire on a 71-year-old newspaper carrier and her 47-year-old daughter who had the misfortune of driving a pick-up truck police thought might be Dorners. The Los Angeles police detectives who opened fire on them,...
