hahahah yeah right -- "If he was to give himself up, we'd be happy to hear what he has to say," Beck said. -- How can a deadman speak....
if this guy is right about the LAPD he is a dead man walking.....

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) — The hunt in the snowy mountains for a former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three killings continued Saturday as police announced they will reopen the disciplinary proceedings that led to the fugitive's firing.

Officials will particularly re-examine Christopher Dorner's allegations that his law enforcement career was undone by racist colleagues, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck told KCBS-TV. He also urged Dorner to surrender.

"If he was to give himself up, we'd be happy to hear what he has to say," Beck said.


Authorities suspect Dorner in a series of attacks in Southern California over the past several days that left three people dead, including a police officer. Authorities say he has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues who he blamed for ending his career.

A scaled-back search party took advantage of a break from stormy weather Saturday to hunt for Dorner in the San Bernardino mountains using heat-sensing helicopters. Officers also fanned out in fresh snow near Big Bear Lake as vacationing families and weekend skiers frolicked nearby.

The manhunt didn't appear to bother the majority of tourists intent on enjoying Saturday's perfect winter weather, which made for strikingly odd contrasts: the sound of barking bloodhounds mixed with rap music blaring off the ski slopes; a family with kids strolling by a deputy, who was clad in full tactical gear and practicing his aim on a small snowdrift.

San Bernardino County sheriff's Detective Chad Johnson said he and others were intent on finding Dorner but also looking for other telltale signs of his whereabouts.

"There's a million clues in the mountain. You've just got to be patient to find them," Johnson said.

Johnson said the search includes mountainous areas that are very steep and high climbs that often end in cliffs.

"It's a challenging day of work," he said.

Saturday was the third full day of the massive multi-agency effort now centered on this resort town about 80 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles where Dorner's burned-out pickup truck was discovered Thursday. Investigators are trying to determine whether Dorner, 33, torched it or if it caught fire for other reasons.

The search once included 125 officers but that number was reduced to 50 on Saturday, according to the sheriff's office.

Officers have been going door to door examining hundreds of vacant cabins, aware that they could be walking into a trap set by the well-trained former Navy reservist who knows their tactics and strategies.

"Christopher Dorner is probably one of the most dangerous fugitives that law enforcement has gone after in recent times," said Clint Van Zandt, former supervisor of FBI's profiling unit. "The challenge is, with his law enforcement and military background, he's very competent with weapons."

Sheriff's Detective Jeremiah MacKay, who began his patrol at 5 a.m. Saturday, said the operation was both massive and tactically complex.

"This one you just never know if the guy's going to pop out, or where he's going to pop out. We're hoping this comes to a close without more casualties. The best thing would be for him to give up," MacKay said.

On Friday night, authorities served a search warrant and collected evidence from a Buena Park storage unit as part of their investigation. Irvine police Lt. Julia Engen wouldn't elaborate on the nature of the evidence or say who had rented the unit.

Earlier Friday, another warrant was served at a La Palma house belonging to Dorner's mother. Officers collected 10 bags of evidence, including five electronic items.

Police said officers still were guarding more than 40 people mentioned as targets in a rant that authorities said Dorner posted on Facebook. He vowed to use "every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordnance and survival training I've been given" to bring "warfare" to the LAPD and its families.

Dorner served in the Navy, earning a rifle marksman ribbon and pistol expert medal. He was assigned to a naval undersea warfare unit and various aviation training units, according to military records. He took leave from the LAPD for a six-month deployment to Bahrain in 2006 and 2007.

Last Friday was his last day with the Navy and also the day CNN's Anderson Cooper received a package that contained a note on it that read, in part, "I never lied." A coin riddled with bullet holes that former Chief William Bratton gave out as a souvenir was also in the package.

Police said it was a sign of planning by Dorner before the killing began.

On Sunday, police say Dorner shot and killed a couple in a parking garage at their condominium in Irvine. The woman was the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing.

Dorner wrote in his manifesto that he believed the retired captain had represented the interests of the department over his.

Hours after authorities identified Dorner as a suspect in the double murder, police believe Dorner shot and grazed an LAPD officer in Corona and then used a rifle to ambush two Riverside police officers early Thursday, killing one and seriously wounding the other.

They pretty much have to with that epic manifesto.

This whole Dorner situation is epic in general. Now he's pulled a Bin Laden and is waiting it out in Tora Bora while the public puts the LAPD under a microscope.

Funny thing is, the public doesn't seem to be scared of Dorner at all. They're more scared of the LAPD shooting them up if they're driving the wrong colored truck.

:awe:

Even if what this nutjob says is true he took it out on innocent people. Want to go after the LAPD.. Fine go after them you little bitch. Going after the families just means he's just another scumbag and I hope they do shoot him on the spot.

Agree, I don't think the general public really should be that worried unless they have direct connections to the LAPD. That said, this guy was very close to garnering a cult following had he not killed the daughter/fiance of his enemies. Had he killed the worst few of the them, and engaged on the manhunt from there, his support would be much stronger.

AND this ladies and gents is why NOTHING will change with the LAPD. fucking toolbags think to emotionally.


OP you know he won't be caught alive. even fi he gives himself up he will get shot "trying to escape" or "commit suicide". I hope he gives himself up. either way its going to put a ton more pressure on the LAPD. if he stays alive and they have to listen to him and look into it. IF he dies while under arrest other people will look into it.

i think that would be the best thing for him to do. he has proven that the LAPD does not care about anyone else but themselves.

I feel much better now the LAPD is going to do an investigation of the LAPD. I'm sure we can trust them as much as the Obama administration doing an investigation of FastN Furious or Benghazi.

The guy is just part Italian. When you're sending a message Mafia style, you whack the entire family.

But it will take a miracle for him to be captured alive, even willingly. Cops don't play nice with cop killers, even cop killer cops...err...wait that doesn't sound right.

Acting tuff? How the fuck do you justify going after somebody's family when they themselves did no harm. You can't, he's a bitch that's it. BOOO HOO I got fired I'm gonna go on a killing spree right now. And if he's such a bad ass, and has such mad skills why the fuck isn't he simply sniping the officers off.

LOL at the other dipshit. People like you are why shit never changes, and the reason tax payer money gets dumped on prisons. Housing people that should just be lined up and shot. There's not a damn thing emotional about it. He killed a couple, he gets killed end of story. Fuck wasting tax money on his ass.

If this guy was going strictly after the actual officers that were involved that'd be different. At least then I would question it, but this guy has lost all creditably.

In the other thread there was some doubt cast on which "manifesto" was accurate and if anything had been added and/or censored. Do you have an accurate "manifesto" link?
