LAPD



It’s uncertain if the charred remains of a human body found inside the razed mountain cabin are those of Christopher Dorner, but it looks highly likely. Now the questions is whether or not the San Bernardino Police and/or the LAPD set the fire on purpose, which also looks likely. From the Guardian:

It is not yet clear how the fire at the cabin was started, but there is speculation that the police started it deliberately.

The audio track of this video purports to be the conversation on police scanners as they surrounded the cabin where Dorner was hiding. The Guardian cannot confirm that the audio track is a genuine recording of the police scanner.

At around the 1min mark, a male voice says:

All right, Steve, we’re gonna go, er, we’re gonna go forward with the plan, with, er, with the burn. We want it, er, like we talked about….



In their ongoing manhunt for Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD officer gone murderously rogue, Los Angeles police have twice opened fire on innocent people without warning or reason. Last week, cops shot a woman and her elderly mother driving in a car mistaken for Dorner’s (although both the license plate and the color of the vehicle were wrong). Police later let loose a hail of bullets on a man driving a pickup truck believed to be Dorner’s (although, again, the vehicle make and color didn’t match). In response, Buzzfeed notes, a local meme has been created by people hoping not to be blown away by L.A.’s finest:





Neighbors used cell phones to film four LAPD officers brutally beating an African American college student who was handcuffed and lying on the ground, resulting in a concussion and broken facial bones. Ronald Weekley Jr. had been skateboarding in front of his family’s house, and a friend says that Weekley initially did not stop because he believed the officers were addressing a group of men standing nearby. He is now behind bars for resisting arrest, with the obvious question being, why would an arrest ever be made in the instance of someone skating in front of his or her home?
