Police in Christopher Dorner standoff launched incendiary tear gas into cabin
By CHUCK BENNETT and DAVID K. LI From Post Wires Last Updated: 6:14 AM, February 14, 2013
Murderous ex-cop Christopher Jordan Dorner wanted to go out in a blaze of glory and the sheriffs deputies who surrounded his California mountain hideout provided the flames.
The San Bernardino County cops torched the wooden cabin with highly flammable incendiary tear gas as Dorner took refuge Tuesday, apparently burning him to a crisp.
Burn this mf--er! one officer shouted as they had Dorner who had earlier killed a deputy and seriously wounded another pinned down in the cabin, according to police radio transmissions.
Amid sounds of gunfire, voices can be head shouting, Burn it down! and Shoot the gas!

What were they supposed to do, send in cookies and wait him out until he shot a few dozen more cops?
They could have knocked on the door and asked to speak to him.
Give the officer that saidthat a medal...: )
lol... yea, that would work.
Cue teh ‘Poooooor Dorner’ cries.
Deadly force is authorized against someone using deadly force.
Nerf bats and wiffle balls don’t convince badguys to surrender.
And Dorner said he wasn’t going to surrender OR be taken in alive.
He intended to die.
Dorner is also a suspect in the shooting of a Los Angeles police officer near Interstate 15 and Magnolia Avenue in Corona early today.
The officer suffered a graze wound to the head.
About 20 minutes later, Dorner is believed to have ambushed two Riverside officers while they were stopped at a red light at Magnolia and Arlington avenues, according to Riverside police Lt. Guy Toussaint, adding that the two were on routine patrol and were not searching for Dorner at the time.
One of the officers a 34-year-old, 11-year veteran of the force was killed.
The wounded Riverside officer, who is 27 years old, underwent surgery and is expected to fully recover, Riverside police Chief Sergio Diaz said.
I hope he suffered before he died.
Well, i suppose its alot cheeper and just as effective as an AT-4 shot:o) I hope it was painful.
Here comes the media to gin up some liberal/racial riots.
Question: How many of the bleeding hearts would have risked their lives to coax Dorner out peacefully?
The press has been trying so hard to turn this into a scandal. As if people (other than some left-wing loons) are going to be upset if the police did this. I hope they did it on purpose.
His manifesto blames early childhood racism - that he wasn’t a Christian - that he accepted death after what he claims were false allegations against him by several people of several levels within the LAPD - lists his targets - and states he will hunt down other police officers using irregular warfare with his linkages to his military career - and that in no way they are going to have it easy...how did they know that he didn’t pre-establish a stronghold in that cabin days before - they had no idea...
Doner’s actions and the reason why the LAPD terminated him goes towards support of the LAPD’s decision to let him go..despite losing his clearance — what was that about??? What circumstances did the DoD find to terminate his clearance -— it wasn’t because of the LAPD’s actions - that’s a fact!
Cookies have too many calories
“Give the officer that said that a medal...: )”
And I do agree with the law enforcement tactics in this case.
But, I remind those gun owners that ‘bravely’ say on this and other blogs that they will just shoot anyone from the government coming to seize their weapons.
Yes, and make sure you cover yourself with bar b que sauce when it starts to get warm and toasty sir......
I don’t think anyone here has any sympathy for Dorner, but he did goad them into shooting a couple of the wrong people, swarming the wrong locations, risking the lives of others, and then burning down someone else’s property. They were on the very margin of professionalism in handling this.
When they come for your guns, expect the same treatment.
Crispy, or Extra Crispy?
I think the police official police line will be to deny any attempt or effort to burn the structure. There would be no need to deny the burn out was deliberate, and intended to kill Dorner, if there was no risk of legal fallout for that mode of deadly force.
