Will Dorner be the next D. B. Cooper?

Heard that today over lunch. There may be something to that.

FBI has a 60 volume file on the case and its still open.

3. No. Cooper's disappearing act was a victimless crime.

Unless you count banks and insurance companies and nobody ever does. Dorner is a murderer attempting to deflect blame for his actions.

7. Seriously. Other than money organizations, DB Cooper didn't hurt anyone. Dorner did.

Maybe compare him to Jimmy Hoffa instead?

8. +1!

Exactly.
I know of a bar called DB COOPERS.
I would hope we never see any named after a triple murderer.

4. He's had years to plan this. I think he's already of of the state.

Might even attack again when it calms down.

5. I was wondering that myself when they couldn't find him.

Things that make you go hmmm.... But never speculate on DU, you'll just get called a CT (for those not in-the-know, like I was, that doesn't mean you're from Connecticut).

10. Be honest

You were called a CTer for saying the following...

"Do you think Dorner really did it? I'm starting to question everything out there.

How can the police not catch him? He returned 8000.00 in lost money to a N. Korean church in 2002, gets fired for turning in a fellow officer for brutality, and then FIVE years later goes off the deep end? That seems rather bizarre, as did the so-called "manifesto".

Another retired LAPD officer on RT television said that the writing styles in the letter change, and it appears to have been written by several different people.

Monica Quan's killer should be found and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I pray for her family."

14. Being honest, I don't want anymore innocent or guilty people killed for some stupid vendetta.

If you don't think this whole situation is insane, then maybe you need to do a bit more self-reflection.

15. i think he's the next Eric Robert Rudolph...

He spent five years on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives until he was caught in 2003. In 2005, as part of a plea bargain, Rudolph pled guilty to numerous federal and state homicide charges and accepted four consecutive life sentences in exchange for avoiding a trial and a potential death sentence.

totally different causes, same outcome?

16. One plus about Dorner is that people who are afraid won't move here

or leave .. and as it is the traffic is out of control and we need population reduction.

After the earthquake was the last time we had a shaking out and lowered the population a bit.
You could at least go ten miles in under an hour then!

17. He's the next Andrew Cunanan; just a killer on the loose,

and it won't end well for him. I don't give a shit about his "motives".

18. No, not a chance.

"D.B. Cooper" is a phantom, with nothing but an FBI drawing to identify him. Dorner is real, with a known identity and a verifiable past. He also is very distinctive and will have difficulty blending in physically outside of urban communities. He might die in the wilderness, more likely be apprehended or SBC, but he will never be a legend.

20. Don't sully Coopers mythos by putting him in the same sentence as this guy.

My favorite tv character was named after DB Cooper, Agent Dale Cooper, Twin Peaks!!
