Breaking: Fugitive Chris Dorner “pinned down” by California police

posted at 5:01 pm on February 12, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Ace, two cops have already been shot but Dorner’s reportedly “pinned down” so the end, hopefully, is near. Details are sketchy right now: The word on cable news is that Dorner broke into someone’s cabin, tied up the couple that owned it, and was then intercepted by police shortly afterward. He may or may not have opened fire at a roadblock. Here’s the live feed from Big Bear. Stand by for updates.

Update: Dorner now holed up in a cabin and surrounded?

Update: More from the LA Times:

The shooting occurred after Dorner burglarized a home, tied up a couple and stole a white pickup truck, sources said. San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Jodi Miller confirmed deputies responded to a vehicle theft about 12:20 p.m., and the resident who reported the theft said the suspect matched Dorner’s description.

The U.S. Forest Service confirms there was an exchange of gunfire between officers on foot and the suspect, in the Santa Ana River drainage, north of State Highway 38 and south of Big Bear Valley. At least one officer of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife was involved, said John Miller, San Bernardino National Forest spokesman. That officer is not believed to be injured.

Hundreds of cops had searched for him on the mountain in the last few days. Where was he hiding?

Update: At long last, civilization mercifully comes to an end:

Update: One of the cops shot by Dorner has reportedly died. Meanwhile, here’s what MSNBC is talking about.

Let’s start with new hotness this time. They payoff is much better:
 
New hotness:
 

And, by the way, hump…dorner is one of yours. He belongs to you leftists…lock, stock and barrel. He is a product of everything that you clowns have espoused for all these long years.
 
Aren’t you proud of your creation?

“yours” “Mine” What kind of comic book do you live in, child? Grow up. There is no “yours” or mine.” Just power…

Yep.

And?

And I guess we’ll be finding out soon if what they did was legal or not.

And I guess they didn’t want him alive to talk more in court.

And, what does that civilian couple he savagely murdered have to say about your “guess”?

Oh, wait…

HUH? How y’all figure that one out? I knew MJ was a kostard sock, but he is that ignorant moron lostmotherland as well?

lol

No need to wait. I can say with certainty that what they did was legal or wasn’t legal. Next time, leave off the “or not,” when “whether” suffices.

Whoah, are you serious? You were right about libfree, I think, but this one seems hard to believe. How do you know this?

bluegill on February 13, 2013 at 7:52 AM

You can’t be sure about anything on the internet. So it would be hard to put paid on anything. They did both seem to like to rag on me about being in the Army. They both seem to hate Christians from the bottom of their souls and love, love, love abortions. But all patriots are allowed their political views.

hawkdriver on February 13, 2013 at 2:04 PM

BTW, is Dorner still dead?

hawkdriver on February 13, 2013 at 2:06 PM

hawkdriver on February 13, 2013 at 2:06 PM

Still ?
Not dead until identified.
Conspiracy folks have a bit more time to play.

Can someone just tell me whether he’s still dead?

Christien, huh? :-)

Gotcha!

Still hard to distinguish him from the cabin floor?

You mean the couple he’s alleged to have killed? Unless there was a trial and nobody told me?

I guess the cops are going full Obama now. Just killing people if they think they’re guilty of crimes.

Not only did he pretty much admit to the executions in his “manifesto”, but reports are that he called the young lady’s father to rub it in.
Track down some of RWM posts. She points it out for you.

Nothing had been proven. The thing about the father could turn out to be rumor just like the initial reports of them finding a body last night. If we start executing people based on initial media reports of what’s happened, we’re beyond screwed in this country.

Benaiah on February 13, 2013 at 4:37 PM

You’re right. They were chasing a ghost. He did not exist.
Neither did the people he shot. Nor did the burning truck.
That was not him who posted the “manifesto” to his own Facebook.
No proof he did that, right ? Could have been hacked.

In fact, according to you, there was absolutely no cause for the police to be looking for him. No reason at all. Yet anytime they got close, the ghost would shoot at them.

Jabberwock on February 13, 2013 at 4:52 PM

BTW, it’s interesting to note that per lostmotherland’s Red Dawn Math (LRDM):
 
1 dangerous and determined person = CA lockdown of 38M people, and we know that CA’s population is roughly 1/10th of the USA’s, so
 
10 dangerous and determined people working in coordination could apparently grind the entire nation (313M people) to a halt.
 
(It’s odd to think that he’d be the one making the case for needing so few people for “change”.)

rogerb on February 13, 2013 at 4:58 PM

(lester, the 10 came from the US population being roughly ten times larger than CA’s, and multiplying 1*10. Remember that multiplying any number by one yields the original number.)

Why do 90% of the posters here seem to turn into raging idiots unless you tote the party line 100% of the time? This place has really gone downhill since it got bought out.

Yes, I’ve been around long enough to know what a Vent video was. I’m very conservative. So much so that I won’t ever vote for Republicans because they aren’t a fiscally conservative party. And, because of my conservatism, I have issues with how this whole manhunt for Dorner went down.

Yes he’s most likely a murderer but we don’t execute people in this country unless it’s been proven they’re a murderer. At least, that’s how it used to be except when a lynch mob would form. Are we returning to the days of lynch mobs just with badges this time? They had the guy cornered in a cabin. They could have thrown enough tear gas to get him out of there. They could have rushed in with riot shields after using a flashbang. That’s what all that equipment is supposedly for right?

Here we are trading our freedoms for “security” again. The illusion of security like with the TSA. Because it’s only a matter of time until those police turn their guns on YOU guys. Who do you think is going to be knocking on your door asking for your guns if and when a ban is ever instituted here? It isn’t going to be the politicians.
