#3 So far he is inside the LAPD's OODA loop. So far. I would imagine that LAPD is asking for and/or getting outside help in getting inside Dorner's OODA Loop.

#4 Yp, they'd rather shoot him than clean house.
Or probably shoot him and NOT clean house, the LAPD badly needs a roto-rooter through it.

#5 Video of him possibly purchasing scuba gear in Torrance has now turned up. I'd be looking a bit further south. Interesting, his sympathizers and Charles Manson-like cult following. Local law enforcement now referring to his murderous acts as "domestic terror". If he's picked up by the Mexican police, $1m won't begin to cover the damages.

They've been cleaning house; he thought he'd make up some BS to ride the gravy train of being a "whistle blower". He's a lying, cowardly sack of shit who got caught lying, got punished for it, and has been so coddled by "affirmative action" he thinks its a horrid injustice.
Frankly, I'm disgusted at the number of people who haven't looked beyond his BS and bought into the legend he created in his own mind.

#7 It is interesting that Dorner is out in the wind this long. There is a lot of heat on him. The climate of L.A. seems to be that there is little trust of the police. I have seen blogs/comments that would indicate that some are not very sympathetic to the cops or authority (The Rodney King and OJ responses). I wonder, if Dorner is getting help from some of these people?

#8 Teevee nuus just announced authorities believe... "he may have had help".

#9 Washington Times short article ref accomplices. This has the potential to get very ugly.

#10 I figured as soon as he burned his vehicle up in snow country he was already in Mexico (or very close). Why else burn it and draw attention to the location if not misdirection?
He's probably in Brazil by now.

#11 Sounds like they've cornered him.

#14 Looks like he was not as smart and wiley as we thought. He seemed to have hung around Big Bear and now is in his last stand, maybe.

#15 What has often happened in the past in cases like this is the cops will fire "tear gas" into the cabin and the next thing you know the cabin will be engulfed in flames. Ooops, they'll say, the tear gas canister must have accidentally ignited a curtain. A prominent example that comes to mind is the Symbianese Liberation Army. But there have been others. Well, there was the Branch Davidian compound in Waco too. Hope the owners of the cabin have insurance.

#16 Who gets the $1.2 million reward, Both guys or the one who made the call? Dorner broke into an cabin off Route 38, on the mountain resort area where days ago his truck was found burning. Two people were held there until Tuesday morning, when Dorner left in a white pickup believed to belong to the occupants, who he left bound inside. One managed to escape and call authorities around 12:50 p.m. local time.

#17 Neither, the cops will claim "Existing Conditions" and refuse to pay.

#19 It occurred to me earlier that this is essentially a domestic disturbance between the LAPD and Dorner, and like a big domestic dust-up, will end with some gun play, a little property damage, a death or two, and the house on fire.
