So, those who claimed the police burned Chris Dorner to death

We await your conspiracy theory as to why the coroner found he died of a gunshot to the head.

Capt. Kevin Lacy of the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner said a 6-hour autopsy conducted by the Riverside County Coroner’s Division showed that Dorner died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

“During the autopsy yesterday, the doctor who conducted the process, concluded that the cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the head,” Lacy said, adding that officials are not yet ready to comment on the manner of his death.

“We will tell you that while we’re still compiling the information and putting our reports together, the information that we have right now seems to indicate that the wound that took Christopher Dorner’s life was self-inflicted,” Lacy said.


http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2013/02/15/sheriff-john-mcmahon-dorner-died-from-gunshot-to-head/

If he died of suicide, not much to be outraged about, ergo he must not have committed suicide.

1. You'd shoot yourself in the head, too, if your other option was to burn to death.

We don't know that they did or did not prevent his ability to surrender.

We don't know that he did or didn't choose suicide over just walking out the door.

We don't know if he even had the choice.

Not much of a conspiracy theory, I suppose.

I just abhor the burning up of buildings by law enforcement when there are other options.

"The closer you are to danger, the further away from harm."

Cops should have known that he'd choose the safe way out by staying inside a burning building, and the even safer route of shooting himself.

114. I made no such assumption

I have no idea if he was given an opportunity to surrender.

I do know that police everywhere regularly shoot other citizens with little or no reason. I do know that Police officers regularly brutalize citizens, all over the nation. LAPD is not some odd case in this, it is just one more example among many.

Are all cops intending to be bad cops? No. I imagine many of them join on intending to make the world a better place. But the fact is they do not cross the blue line once they are in. And that includes protecting the bad apples among them from justice, against the needs of the public, against the rights of innocents, against the law. And that makes them, as a group, corrupt. Even the ones who have never harassed a passerby or shot someone.

55. The CT that the cops meant to burn him alive has one slight flaw:

Dorner could have foiled it by leaving the cabin.

It's a little known fact that some people, when inside a burning building, decide to walk from inside the building to an area outside the building.

As it turns out, Dorner had a legal obligation to walk out of that cabin, hands on his head, before the use of the weaker tear gas, before the use of the CS gas, and before the fire started.

But, it wasn't too late for him to walk out of the cabin when the fire did start.

Amazingly, the police plot to burn him to death never contemplated this possibility!!!!

61. Were you there? The News media reported, and played the tape to prove it, that

the cops burned the cabin. I watched the reporting and heard the tape that night. If he killed himself, then it was unnecessary to burn down the cabin. Why did they do that? There was an army outside, he wasn't going anywhere other than committing suicide which in his case was probably what he intended anyhow.

He was wrong to do what he did regardless of his reasons, however the problem the LAPD has is their own reputation, not too many people have much faith in them so there will be plenty of CTs and plenty or reminders of other incidents, which I have already seen on the MSM, of their own past behavior. And that is the problem when the cops are allowed to use excessive force so often in this country with no consequences, they lose respect from the people. And that is no CT, it is a fact and something badly needs to be done about it.

87. For Gawds sake it was obvious that he shot himself

and they have admitted they caused the fires even if they say unintentionally.

Not a damned thing is new here but you keep trying to start a DU fight.

This is my last response to you on it, but damn dude, give it a rest already. It appears that you like to shit stir.

It was obvious that after the fire started he shot himself. DUH!

Now, I do hope they check to make sure it was him who killed the deputy. I saw a video of a bunch of cops walking along and one just stops and starts shooting into the woods. Hopefully into empty woods but what a fucked foolhardy thing to do.

Oh by the way, we have a guy in our area who just killed two people and put a 7 year old in ICU. I'm just waiting for all the massive police effort here to find him. Oh, no massive manhunt for him? Got to kill a cop for that? Two systems of justice in this land. One for them and one for us. You won't see it till it's pointed at you, but one day it may be. You will see the injustice the poor see daily.

Good day to you, Geek. May we agree on another topic someday. I said Good Day!

Incendiary tear gas usually does not start a fire. Sometimes it does.

It does release a nasty form of tear gas all the time.

26. Those were completely unacceptable and should be referred to a grand jury.

See what I did there? I judged what one group of cops did on its own merit based on the facts, rather than picking a side of either "cops good" or "cops bad" and forcing my theory to fit that assumption.

Logic says that when police use tear gas in the situation where tear gas is usually used, they were using it as tear gas. Especially since CS gas usually does not start a fire.

11. I am glad the incident is over and glad there were no hostages or any other deaths.

Dorner was not going to get out of that cabin alive regardless.

There is no excuse for his actions at all. He got what he deserved, expected and wanted according to his manifesto.

I can hold in my head the likely facts that he killed himself even before the fire and that the fire was deliberately set by law enforcement at the same time.

What is so hard about holding these thoughts simulotaneously and what the heck does that have to with with conspiracy theory?

Seems to me the events as they unfolded were straightforward.

57. I agree the burn MF is not on that video as I had listened just to where they start talking about

the burn plan about one minute in (edit to add)when posted.

You may very well be correct that the burn plan and burn the motherfucker were not at the same time and obviously not the same person.

That tape is obvious the fire was set deliberately by plan. That fact is extremely clear, no doubt.

One can also find tapes with the burn the motherfucker.

I don't get the big deal?

Dohner was a murderous asshole and what happened happened and he got what he asked for in his manifesto.

The fact is there are tapes that have law enforcement talking about a burn plan and and acting on it.

The fact is if one looks some more there are law enforcement rather emotionally saying burn the motherfucker.

I am not making any value judgement at all except Dohner was a murderous asshole.

These are the only Dohner posts I have even made.

Both that there was an enacted burn plan and the statement burn the motherfucker out are recorded cannot be questioned if one listens to tapes available at DU.

Ye gads, did better if had not tried to clarify in edit. lol

59. Aside from "burn the m-f-er", I am wondering if "burn" in the case of tear gas means it is working?

jargon/lingo sort of thing? I have no clue, just wondering if the term is used in that way since every profession or group ends up using words in a jargon way that isn't common useage for the rest of us.

I have no dog in this fight, have made few Dorner posts also.

And very much agree that the actions of all the police and sheriffs involved will need close investigation.

I'd like to hear the "burn the mfer" but not enough to go listen to a bunch of vids hoping it is in there, if that makes sense.

It was posted on DU earlier. Someone says "burn that motherfucker" and "burn him out". That says to me that the intention (as is always the intention in such a drastic measure) in burning the cabin - had it been burned on purpose - was to burn it to force him out of the cabin. I had always thought that "burn that motherfucker" referred to the cabin, not to Dorner as in 'burn that motherfucking cabin' anyway. Seems pretty clear to me that was what was meant seeing as it was followed by "burn him out".

52. Not mutually exclusive

He might have killed himself in close conjunction with the arson. And one might have occurred before the other. Right now, the evidence looks like Dorner intended to kill himself while, simultaneously, the police were planning to kill him via arson.

The middle ground is not always a fallacy. Just because one was in the wrong does not mean the other was in the right. They can both be wrong. If you don't believe me, check out the Israel/Palestine forum.

53. No, it is not even reasonable that the police were planning to kill him with arson.

EVEN IF the police meant to start that fire, the most likely outcome (other than suicide) would have been Dorner leaving the building, either with his hands on his head or on the trigger of his gun. (Bonus Clash reference).

Which is exactly the purpose of a tear gas use in the first place.

56. Well, the truth is somewhere along the lines of:

Rules of engagement were to accept a surrender if the subject was clearly not a threat. But, if any part of him even twitches, take no chances.

The more dangerous a fugitive, the less likely he will be taken alive.

63. Not sure I agree with your police work there, bigapple1963.

If Dorner shot himself before the fire started, then he didn't start the fire. That leaves only the police to start the fire.

If the police knew he'd shot himself, why send in the flammable tear gas and start the fire? Obviously they thought he was still alive (assuming he was actually dead before all this) and sent in the tear gas, knowing (some police on tape loudly hoping) that it could start a fire.

So they didn't burn him to death. It's clear to me and a lot of people that they either tried to or didn't care if they did. I don't agree at all with Dorner's actions here, but the LAPD has much to answer for as well.

67. what about this scenario

 

Police sent him tear gas and started tearing down the walls.
He was overwhelmed by the tear gas and knew that police were coming.
He didn't want to surrender so he shot himself.
Tear gas causes the fire.

LAPD wasn't in charge of the final operations at the cabin.



By the way, how badly his lungs were burnt and whether there was any smoke in his lungs can pretty much prove the sequence of events (whether he shot himself before or after the fire started).

81. a little more info:

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-dorner-20130216,0,3243239.story

*snip*

The blaze started shortly after police fired "pyrotechnic" tear gas into the cabin; the canisters are known as "burners" because the intense heat they emit often causes a fire.

Sheriff's Capt. Gregg Herbert, who led the assault on the cabin, said the canisters were used only as a last resort after Dorner continued firing at deputies, ignored commands to surrender and did not respond when "cold," less intense tear gas was shot into the wood-framed dwelling.

Herbert said that a tractor was deployed to tear down walls of the cabin to expose Dorner's whereabouts inside, but that Dorner set off smoke bombs to hide himself. Storming the cabin was considered too dangerous because of the belief that Dorner "was lying in wait for us," he said.

"This was our only option," Herbert said of the pyrotechnic tear gas, adding that the potential for igniting a fire was taken into account.

82. Being that Chris Dorner was a one time member of the LA Pig Force himself.......

....I am sure that he would have already known that setting fire to, and burning down houses where any high profile stand-off battle rages, is the SOP of the LA pigs. One case in point that I am sure could not have escaped his radar was a "few" years earlier when the Pigs set fire to, and burned down the house in LA suburbia where Donald DeFreeze (Sen Que, SLA) was holed up in.

That having been said, I am also sure that he had enough mental acuity to know well enough how to "pick his battles". And I am also of a mind to say that he therefore must have decided of his own accord that his end was going to happen in the way that it did. He must have known, well before the stand off began, that it was only a matter of time before the pigs would set the house on fire, and that after the flames began, he would then have the option of either being slowly burned alive (viz DeFreeze), or else checking out very quickly through an action of his own doing.

I remember noting also back after the DeFreeze incident how the "official statement" from the pigs (spoken out of the right side of their mouth) was that they had "no idea" how the house fire got started ("musta been a 'hot' bullet, ya think?").

I am not condoning in any way the horrific actions that Dorner accomplished before his demise. But I do think that the bigger story behind that scene, is the corruption within the organization that he targeted. He must have fully realized that there was no way that anyone would ever permit him to live and expose the scathing truth that he knew.

For me, the saddest part of this entire incident was that he felt that what he did was the only way that he could live with himself.

I think I remember that the Greeks wrote some very thought provoking plays that dealt with that very subject.

When I think about evolution from my prison of Socrates, I sometimes wonder how many millennia will come to pass before the capacity to take revenge will be universally eliminated from our genetic makeup. Yet I have also come to realize that some of us possess a level of consciousness that is ahead of that time.
