Breaking News: Christopher Dorner engaged in shootout with authorities

Christopher DornerLOS ANGELES — Law enforcement officers have engaged in a gun battle in the mountains of California with a person believed to be a former Los Angeles police officer.

The noise of the gunbattle was broadcast by KCAL-TV, whose reporter suddenly found himself near the fight. Someone could be heard yelling at the reporter to get out of the area.

Road blocks are up around Big Bear, where Christopher Dorner’s burned-out pickup was found Thursday.

Authorities have been conducting  a manhunt in the area since last week.

  1. Police: “we didn’t set out to burn the cabin..investigation over. Well what abt the body? We’ll know more once investigation is complete. WTF?

    The presser police just gave concerning Dorner is FULL of ISH! Who do they think they’re kidding? What kind of nonsense was THAT?

    • rikyrah says:

      they burned him to a crisp and had every intention of doing so when they heard he was in the cabin. you know it. i know it.

      • Ametia says:

        Yes; the attempts yesterday to KILL Dorner was a modern day LYNCHING without ropes and hooded robes. The police asked folks from the media to leave the area and for folks not to TWEET about their FOULNESS.


        They crispy fried Dorner. They wanted that negro DEAD.

  2. The San Bernardino Sheriff officers have conflicting stories on whether this investigation is over. The first officer reported the investigation is over but when the press started to question them we’re told the investigation is on going and questions asked will be answered later. Which the fuck is it?

    • Ametia says:

      The FEDS need to get to Cali stat. These MOFOs are LYING. How the fuck is an investigation over, when they can’t identify the supposed burned/charred body of Dorner?

  3. Ametia says:


    Christopher Dorner is Dead: Is He Your Hero or Anti-Hero? Is He Your Villain? Why?
    Is Christopher Dorner dead? If so did he beat “The Man?” Alternatively, in his “defeat” by “The Man” will Dorner actually “triumph” in the long-term?

    Alternet has my essay on Christopher Dorner as an archetypal figure in American (black) popular culture on the front page. I thank them for that gesture.

    • Ametia says:

      The LAPD needs an INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION from beginning to end on Dorner’s allegations, his pursuit, and supposed killing/burning in that cabin.

  5. Officers yell “Get the gas, burn it down” during Dorner, police shootout

    At about the 1:24 mark, you hear someone say “Burn it down”. Another says “go get the gas”. Another says “yea, burn it down”.

    • Ametia says:

      The presser the police just held, said they did not set out to burn down the cabin. and that the invesitgation is over. Then the questions about the body of Dorner. STILL NOT CONFIRMED. Another officer says, we’ll know more once the investigation’s complete.



  6. So they found his wallet and badge near the burned corpse? I thought they found the badge near his burned out truck? Wallet found near the corpse? Come on?

    Lying liars and the lies they tell!

  7. Audio catches cops shouting ‘Burn this motherf*cker!’ during Dorner siege

    Scanner audio apparently broadcast by the Los Angeles CBS affiliate KCAL on Tuesday captured angry officers yelling to “burn this motherfucker” prior to a cabin fire that is thought to have burned the body of fugitive ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner.

    In a video recording posted to YouTube on Tuesday, the anchor pauses to let the viewer hear the mostly-inaudible scanner traffic.

    “Do it right now,” one voice says. “Fucking burn this motherfucker!”

    “Police officers, understandably upset,” the anchor explains.

    A separate recording of scanner traffic — which has not been verified — features officers talking about going forward “with the burn.”

    “All right, Steve, we’re gonna go — we’re gonna go forward with the plan, with — with the burn,” a male voice on the recording instructs. “We want it like we talked about.”

  8. Two Audios: Police started the fire on Christopher Dorner’s cabin, and the carjacking victim’s story

    How fugitive Christopher Dorner met his death is lacking in details. Media outlets are confirming his demise, however, authorities stated that they would have to do a DNA test first, which makes this unfolding drama even more confusing. CNN reported that someone attempted to leave the burning cabin — which the cops started according to the police scanner– but said person was pushed back inside.

    Dorner was reported to have stolen a man’s car at gunpoint. In this audio, Rick Heltebrake tells KFI that Dorner said “I won’t hurt you” then added that he could take his dog out of the truck. When Heltebrake asked if he could get the dog leash Dorner denied his request.

    This is what was reported by the LATimes “Police “urged, over a loud speaker, the man they believed to be Dorner to surrender. When they got no response, authorities deployed a vehicle to rip down the walls of the cabin”

    This is what was reported by the LATimes “Police “urged, over a loud speaker, the man they believed to be Dorner to surrender. When they got no response, authorities deployed a vehicle to rip down the walls of the cabin”

    This audio/video tells a different story.

    • Ametia says:

      THIS comment right here:

      “There’s a special judicial system that erases evidence, suspends jury trial & puts people in prison for life without trial. Dorner is right to take his action now because in the future LAPD & other police will execute your children in front of you & put bags of meth & a gun in your hand and say you did it, erase any camera evidence showing otherwise & kill / rape the witnesses.”

  9. Did Christopher Dorner Really Burn to Death in That Cabin?

    There’s one big question on everyone’s mind today as one of the biggest manhunts in history came to a conclusion with a gunfight, a cabin blaze, and one set of charred remains on Tuesday: Are we done with the Christopher Dorner saga? According to police, not quite. Even though a body was found, the question about Dorner’s final fate still can’t be answered at the moment.

  10. Ametia says:

    So is Dorner literally & figuratively “DONE” or not?

  11. Joe Jones Manifesto: Former LAPD Cop Says He Had Similar Experiences As Alleged Cop Killer, Chris Dorner

    A former LAPD officer has written a manifesto sympathizing with Christopher Dorner, the fugitive ex-LA cop who has declared “war” on the LAPD.

    “The 1st thing I would say to [Dorner] is, I feel your pains!,” Joe Jones wrote in his manifesto, circulated Tuesday by hacker group Anonymous and posted to Jones’ Facebook. “But you are going about this the wrong way. To take innocent lives could never be the answer to anything. I say this as a Man who experienced the same pain, betrayal, anger, suffering, litigation and agony that you did in many ways.”

    Jones, 48, was a patrol officer for nine years, retired in 1998 and now has an event-planning company in LA, the LA Weekly reports. It appears that Jones’ Facebook may have been disabled hours after posting his manifesto (see full manifesto below).

    He expressed his condolences for Dorner’s victims as well as victims of “the injustices of Police Corruption, Scandal, Lies, Deception and Brutality.”

    Jones said he himself has been a victim of such corruption. “I need you to first assume that I would not surface 16 years later with lies about a situation that has me with PTSD to this very day,” he wrote. “The pain forces me to speak as I have yet to shake the Ill’s of my experience as an LAPD Officer.”

    Jones’ accounts of personally being wrong by the LAPD include:

    1) I had my home viciously attacked by a gunman with my family and myself inside the house. No arrests were made and my family and I Received very little support.
    2) I had my Civil Rights violated on several occasions. I was falsely arrested at gunpoint by the Sheriffs as an Officer who ID’d himself and was conspired against by both LAPD and the Sheriffs when my Civil case went to Trial.
    3) I was falsely accused on more than one occasion and simply placed in a position that the trust was so compromised that I could no longer wear the Uniform. Also know there were many more episodes. All of these issues are well documented.

    • leutisha says:

      Oh, SNAP!

      Joe Jones might be the brotha that makes sure Dorner’s concerns won’t get buried.

      I hope this brotha is packing a registered gun – he’s gonna need it since the LAPD thought that by burning up Dorner, they can make this shyt GO AWAY.

      And I want the Federal Government doing DNA tests on that corpse before announcing it’s Chris Dorner. The LAPD has their forensic teams in their hip pockets and they’re just as corrupt. If Philip Van Atter is not walking around with a vial of blood in his hip pocket eight hours after Nicole Simpson is killed, Johnnie Cochran doesn’t get it thrown out of court and gets OJ off first degree murder charges.

  12. Listen to GUNFIRE LAPD EX COP Christopher Dorner shootout with Cops AUDIO

    • Ametia says:

      Nope; now way was Dorner getting out of this alive. His shooting after the officers further proved that fact. They all but LYNCHED him though.

  13. Christopher Dorner Shootout – Cops say “Burn It Down”

  14. Watching a human being burning up in fire is BARBARIC!

    • Ametia says:

      Law enforcement in California have pulled a body from a burning home and are conducting a forensic exam, multiple law enforcement sources tell former FBI assistant director and CNN contributor Tom Fuentes.

      The same law enforcement sources are told by the Los Angeles Police Department that the body is that of former LAPD officer Christopher J. Dorner, the subject of a massive manhunt.

  15. Ametia says:

    Report: Body found in burned cabin is suspect Chris Dorner

    BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Multiple reports say authorities retrieved the body of Christopher Dorner inside the burned cabin near Big Bear Tuesday night.

    Anderson Cooper asked if it would be harder to find a BLACK man at night. SMGDH.

  18. dande3 says:

    I knew these SOB,s was going to set fire to the house. I told my BF. They are going to set it on fire. That is what they do remeber Black Wall Street, Rose Wood, and no one will ever forget all the crosses on fire. That is white folks MO. And for the bitch mayor of Los Angeles who was offering a million dollards, Too capture one man. This Mofo should have giving that money to fill all the dame holes in our streets. Are to capture the dame 18th street gang. Iam a mother and a grandmother and God please be with his MOTHER and familey. And oh yes by the way I do beleive HIM. I live in Los Angeles California .

  19. Ametia says:

    The cabin where accused renegade ex-cop Christopher Dorner was believed to be holed up is burning and the fate of the suspect remains unclear, authorities said.

    Firefighters will be brought in to extinguish the blaze, according to authorities familiar with the operation. A San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman said authorities are not aware of any hostages involved.

    One of the two sheriff’s deputies wounded earlier in a shootout with the suspect has died, Sheriff John McMahon said. The other deputy underwent surgery “but he should be fine,” McMahon said.

  20. Ametia says:

    The media can stop that BULLSHIT about the LAPD having racism “3 decades ago.” GTFOH.

  21. Renners says:

    Also saw a tweet that the Sheriff has asked all media/journalists to stop tweeting. Ummmm! No sir. Where they do that at?

  22. Renners says:

    Twitter right now is hilarious! Someone said that dude escaped on horseback. ..hahaha!

  23. If you’re black in America, this is a wake up call to accept racism, accept racial profiling, accept police bruality, accept the oppression. IF you complain , you will be IGNORED & called disgruntled.

    • leutisha says:

      Wait until YT gets profiled, because after people of color, they won’t have anyone else except Beckystan. Just like everything else EEO, that bitch will holler the loudest and get most of the justice. Wait and see.

  24. Ametia says:

    Let’s see; surrender,or FRY/DIE?

    • leutisha says:

      I said at the beginning this brotha wasn’t going to allow the LAPD to take him alive – he knows they would have killed him while in custody, made up some excuse for killing him and then pass it off as truth. This way, unfortunately, we ALL get to see him go down in a blaze of glory as far as he’s concerned. How much of a fair shake would he have gotten if he surrenders? NONE AT ALL, I tell ya’.

  25. Ametia says:

    Ah shit; they’re gonna fry that negro on live tee vee.

    • leutisha says:

      They can’t take him alive. They didn’t even TRY. They wanted to fry his ass, in the hopes that this whole thing GOES AWAY.

      I don’t give a tinker’s damn for Jesse and crew, either. That’s why we bloggers are going to have to keep this issue out there, even after they burn him up. They only offered to re-open his case as a negotiation tool for him to surrender – and even if he had, they would have shot him down, anyway, ’cause that’s how LAPD roll. Look at how they covered up the fact they gunned down two Latina women just because they were driving a vehicle that looked like Dorner’s. I don’t trust these mofos, and I’m not going to pay attention to any “Dr. Phil-ing” they try to pull because they will be guaranteed to piss me off with their false pontificating.

  26. Steve Weinstein‏@steveweinstein

    Flames have engulfed the entire building, says KCBS reporter on scene. They are burning him up.

  27. Ametia says:

    This nightmare needs to end.

  28. The cabin Dorner supposingly is held up in is on fire.

  29. Ametia says:

    SWAT team has entered the cabin.

  30. Christopher Dorner manhunt: police surround cabin in Big Bear – live

  31. LAPD, this is what you did with your nasty ugly racism. #racism #christopherdorner

    • leutisha says:

      If they take down this brotha, we have an obligation to make sure that the LAPD keep their commitment to reopening his initial complaint. Don’t think for two seconds that once they blow this brotha away, they won’t try to bury this shyt and say “Nothing to see here; move along now…”

      I swear, if Jesse and crew can continually stand up for brothas who need to have cans of whip-ass broken out on them (cough, R. Kelly, cough), they need to go to the mat for Chris Dorner – if nothing else, make sure Dorner’s complaining wasn’t in vain, since this shoot out is a direct result of the LAPD bullshyt.

      • Ametia says:

        Jesse and crew ain’t worth shit, and I make no apologies. I think hey are on the dole of the man, so why should they step up and call for the LAPD.. There’s no way in HELL Dorner’s coming out of this alive to tell his side of the tale, get help, or stand trial. NO WAY.

  32. Clint Van Zandt, we don’t believe the LAPD will allow Dorner to leave that cabin alive…even if he surrenders with hands in the air.

    • Ametia says:

      Memo to Dorner: Put your head between your legs, and kiss your black ass goodbye. No way you’re coming out of this alive, after shooting the Po Po.

      • leutisha says:

        They can’t take him alive. He’ll raise all kinds of hell regarding the reason he felt he had to do what he’s done in the first place. They take him dead. CASE CLOSED, and I don’t want the LAPD to have another tailor-made excuse to cover up the bullshyt that’s been going on since the 1920’s when Christine Collins reported her son, Walter, was missing, and the LAPD tried to foister a replacement kid on her, saying they had found her son. When she complained that the kid they tried to pass off as her son, Walter, was NOT her boy, they threw her in jail and tried to make like she was crazy. That Clint Eastwood movie, “Changeling” was based in large part on her story and the corruption going on in the Los Angeles Police Department at that time.

        LAPD’s corrupt history goes back damn near 100 years and counting….

      • Ametia says:

        Tell the truth. The LAPD want Dorner DEAD.

        So basically the LAPD decides who is crazy and when they’re crazy, huh.

  33. Sarah Reese Jones‏@srjones66

    Chris Matthews just asked if there are other black people in Big Bear…. Mayor said, “We don’t look at color of people’s skin.”

    • leutisha says:

      What are they going to say? Remember what D. L. Hughley said: ” If you can count how many Black people you actually know, you’re a BIGOT…”

      There might be a few of US in Big Bear, but as a native Californian, there are some places we Black folk don’t try to inhabit. We just go there for the skiing.

    • Ametia says:

      Seriously? They don’t look at the color of people’s skin, unless it’s BLACK.

  34. Clint Van Zandt shut up already! You have no clue about the racism African Americans suffer every day in this country. Dorner is just one who couldn’t take it anymore & snapped.

    • leutisha says:

      Pisses me off when YT tries to pontificate on how WE feel about experiencing racism when he has NO. PHUCKING.CLUE.
