Update on Dorner (So Cal Manhunt)

UPDATE, FEB. 8, 12:14 P.M.: With snowflakes sticking to his cropped head, San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said at a just-concluded press conference, "Our guys are making great progress" in the search for Dorner in Big Bear but the top cop has "no new information" on the suspect's whereabouts.

"We're having no problems getting to the area's we need to search," said McMahon, who added all residences have been checked out. The sheriff said the manhunt will continue through the weekend if necessary.

A final press briefing today by McMahon is scheduled at 4 p.m.

Before the press conference, authorities disclosed Dorner has no special military survivalist training.

Bill Jahn, the mayor of the City of Big Bear Lake, after being introduced by the sheriff, said ski resorts are operating normally and he's confident his constituents are being adequately protected. Jahn encouraged continued patronage of Big Bear merchants.

From my perspective, he is a bit loony for his love of Hillary, Obama and Peirs Morgan as well as the juvenile attitude they all share about stricter gun laws but you have to give the guy a few props. Okay, so going on a shooting rampage while standing for stricter gun laws makes him well beyond center for the "Loony Bin" scale but here is a man who was willing to put everything on the line for a cause. While it is impossible to condone what he has done nor remove the devastating losses of those slain, his reasons remain valid.


Hell, if the people in the LA area haven't noticed the corruption and police brutality amongst those proclaiming to, "Protect and Serve", then perhaps there has been too many loose Marijuana laws. The situation is the same in most every state. Cops regularly assault, violate rights and even murder citizens and are never held accountable for their actions because of the, "code of silence". They have the capability to manipulate charges and evidence, enhance minimal charges into a felonious level and lie under oath in a Court of Law and never come under suspicion while working at top speed to arrest as many people as possible per shift.

The use of intimidation, brute force and deadly consequences for not bowing to every command from people who have been known to abuse steroids while being pressured to keep arrest and convictions high, makes for a terrible situation. The system is corrupt as evidenced by the US Attorney General and DOJ's, "Fast and Furious", fiasco all the way down to cops who tazer 12 year old girls, slam women to the ground for traffic infringements of physically beat a homeless man to death. So, Christopher Dorner went over the top or did he know ... as an insider that, there was no other choice?

2. So far, they're making "great progress" in not finding him.

I'd wager he is no longer in the Big Bear area.

5. I figure Arizona or Nevada by now.

He had a plan, and he had a backup plan, and he was moving fast, you can see that just looking at a map.

4. Interesting tidbit

An LAPD tactical alert that had been lifted early this morning was later reinstated due to reports of Dorner sightings throughout Southern California today.


Locally Barona Casino, Lakeside (determined to be a hoax) and Poway.

7. Latest update from the Blog

Asked if law enforcement believes Dorner is still on the mountain, she answered, "It's possible"--which was the same answer she gave to the question of whether it's believed he left the area long ago.

Bachman said she had not been briefed about media reports that Dorner received survivalist training in Alaska. And, speaking of cold places, that's the only thing about Big Bear that is bothering the trackers.

""The level of frustration is it's just taking longer to do what they do best, that's their only frustration," she said. "The snow is really slowing them down and there was no air support today."
