26. Scanner activity emerged which had an officer ordering colleagues

to "burn it (the cabin) down" and a voice saying: "We're gonna go forward with the plan, with the burn." One officer was heard saying: "Seven burners deployed and we have a fire. We have fire in the front. He might come out the back."

"Burners" is a term sometimes used by police to refer to tear gas cannisters, which the officers could have been referring to.

But a local television station also broadcast what appeared to be an officer at the scene saying: "We're going to burn him out," and "Burn that ****** house down!"

Former FBI assistant director Tom Fuentes told CNN: "It's clear there will have to be some further explanation."

I guess they calculated, then, that it would take seven of those "small explosive flashes" to START a fire.

Like I said, I can certainly understand WHY they weren't interested in not taking Dorner alive. I could even take their side if they'd claimed that tactically, they saw no other alternative. But it makes them look silly at best, and self-incriminating at worst, for them to lie about it now.
