Authorities announce $1 million reward for Dorner

Source: AP-Excite

By TAMI ABDOLLAH

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Seeking leads in a massive manhunt, Los Angeles authorities on Sunday offered a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Christopher Dorner, the former police officer suspected in three killings.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced the reward, raised through several private and public donors, at a news conference at LAPD headquarters.

"Our dedication to catch this killer remains steadfast," Villaraigosa said. "We will not tolerate this reign of terror."

Meanwhile, authorities said camping gear was found along with weapons inside Dorner's burned-out pickup truck. The vehicle found Thursday in the ski resort town of Big Bear Lake was so charred that investigators couldn't be more specific about the nature of its contents, Sgt. Rudy Lopez said.

1. Oh, I bet they think someone is hiding him

and a million would be very tempting.

2. Maybe they should check photography stores...

Evidence suggests that he may be involved in some sort of ill-conceived mail-order pornography ring.

16. Not buying that

 

He was a Naval Officer with a secret clearance. No way the FBI misses that during the YEARLY background check.

17. The FBI does not do yearly checks. The 5 year update for those already holding a clearance is

cursory at best. The initial SSBI is the most comprehensive, and once that is granted, it would take a lot to lose it. If he raised no other flags, no one would be looking at him at all for a background check. There simply isn't the manpower.

so far, it looks like no one has looked at the pic since they think you really think he was in a porn ring.

3. Which reign of terror are they referring to?

Dorner's, which seems to be on hiatus?

Or the police's, which won't end until they CALM DOWN and start acting like adults instead of little kids playing cowboys and indians?

Don't drive a car that vaguely resembles his or you will be shot, and don't own a home where we think he might be or we will break into it.

5. Geez, maybe they should've done that before they started shooting at innocent civillians.

Hell, they could make it $5 million and still be ahead based on what they're going to get hammered with in the lawsuits.

11. What could go wrong with this?

Now we are not only going to have trigger happy cops gunning for him, they're going to have itchy trigger finger citizens out there mucking up the works.

Am I the only one who sees this whole situation as one which could go horribly wrong very quickly? I would bet that Dorner is looking at all this -- female Latino paper deliverers and a white surfer, both with obviously wrong vehicles, getting gunned by trigger-happy cops -- and laughing his ass off.

This has already descended into chaos. So, I've got a great idea!!!! Let's offer a million dollar award!!

What could go wrong with that? Eh?

And where's Dawg, the bounty hunter, when we need him. Maybe he can pray at Dorner and bring him in.

Last thing we need is a black man getting shot trying to collect on this reward.

by Dorner--shot down in cold blood by an armed lunatic. This story could get worse, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how.

It will save millions in replacement trucks and legal settlements.

Maybe we should send some armed school teachers to track him down.

of Dorner. We all know that will never happen so the reward is a joke.

Just like all the money that goes to pay the lawsuits of the people abused by bad cops. It gets paid with taxpayer money.

Oddly, that's what downtown and Skid Row's homeless and poor and people of color get to feel all the time when they're around. Hrm.
