The cabin went up in flames after an intense shootout Yesterday, after cleaning ladies spotted Dorner at a condominium in Big Bear Yesterday morning. He tied them up and left them unharmed before stealing a vehicle. Only CBS News captured the gunfight while it was happening.

Click here to read Christopher Dorner’s Online Rant (Manifesto) – A massive manhunt for Dorner was conducted this past week. Dorner is accused of killing several people including a two Police officers and an off-duty cop along with the cop’s fiance.

Police in California came upon Dorner’s online rant towards LAPD cops. He goes on to threaten violence towards police and their family members.

Parts of the manifesto are as follows;

Don’t honor these fallen officers/dirtbags. When your family members die, they just see you as extra overtime at a crime scene and at a perimeter. Why would you value their lives when they clearly don’t value yours or your family members lives? I’ve heard many officers who state they see dead victims as ATV’s, Waverunners, RV’s and new clothes for their kids. Why would you shed a tear for them when they in return crack a smile for your loss because of the impending extra money they will receive in their next paycheck for sitting at your loved ones crime scene of 6 hours because of the overtime they will accrue. They take photos of your loved ones recently deceased bodies with their cellphones and play a game of who has the most graphic dead body of the night with officers from other divisions. This isn’t just the 20 something year old officers, this is the 50 year old officers with significant time on the job as well who participate.

Never allow a LAPPL union attorney to be a retired LAPD Captain,(Quan). He doesn’t work for you, your interest, or your name. He works for the department, period. His job is to protect the department from civil lawsuits being filed and their best interest which is the almighty dollar. His loyalty is to the department, not his client. Even when he knowingly knows your innocent and the BOR also knows your innocent after Christopher Gettler stated on videotape that he was kicked and Evans attorney confessed to the BOR off the record that she kicked Gettler.

And the threat;

The Violence of action will be HIGH. I am the reason TAC alert was established. I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty. ISR is my strength and your weakness. You will now live the life of the prey. Your RD’s and homes away from work will be my AO and battle space. I will utilize every tool within INT collections that I learned from NMITC in Dam Neck. You have misjudged a sleeping giant. There is no conventional threat assessment for me. JAM, New Ba’ath party, 1920 rev BGE, ACM, AAF, AQAP, AQIM and AQIZ have nothing on me. Do not deploy airships or gunships. SA-7 Manpads will be waiting. As you know I also own Barrett .50′s so your APC are defunct and futile.

Outside agencies and individual officers on patrol. If you recognize my vehicle, and confirm it is my vehicle thru a dmv/want warrant check. It behoves you to respond to dispatch that your query was for information purposes only. If you proceed with a traffic stop or attempt to notify other officers of my location or for backup you will not live to see the medal of valor you were hoping to receive for your actions. Think before you attempt to intervene. You will not survive. Your family will receive that medal of valor posthumously. It will gather dust on the fireplace mantel for years. Then one day, it will go in a shoe box with other memories. Your mother will lose a son or daughter. Your significant other will be left alone, but they will find someone else to fill your void in the future and make them just as happy. Your children, if you have them, will call someone else mommy or daddy. Don’t be selfish. Your vest is only a level II or IIIA, think about it.

The rant goes on.

Feb 10, 2013, LOS ANGELES, CA — Manhunt For Former LAPD Police Officer In Southern California Continues

christopher-dornerFormer Los Angeles law enforcement officer Christopher Dorner is wanted for a series of murders targeted at police officers and their family members. 

Police including SWAT Teams and bloodhounds have been on a manhunt the past several days looking for him near the Big Bear Lake in Southern California. They’ve been searching the snowy San Bernardo mountains after finding camping equipment along with weapons inside a burnt-out truck belonging to Dorner. LAPD Sergeant. Rudy Lopez said in a statement on Sunday that the vehicle was so charred that investigators couldn’t be more specific about the nature of its contents. They went door-to-door, asking the hundreds of cabin-owners if they have seen the disgruntled ex-officer.

Dorner allegedly shot and killed a Riverside police officer in the early hours of Thursday morning. Dorner pulled up across from two Riverside officers stopped at a traffic light in their patrol car and used his rifle to shoot them, killing one and injuring the other, according to Chief Sergio Diaz of the Riverside Police Department.

Dorner is out with a vengeance and has threatened to target several former co-workers who he blames for his failed career. He has left rambling rants on Facebook vowing to take revenge. “You are aware that I have always been the top shot, highest score, an expert in rifle qualifications in every unit I’ve been in,” he wrote. “I will utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition ordnance, and survival training I’ve been given.”

The killings and threats have led police to provide protection to 50 families.

A captain for the LAPD who was named a target in the manifesto posted on Facebook told the Orange County Register he has not stepped outside his house since he learned of the threat.

“From what I’ve seen of (Dorner’s) actions, he feels he can make allegations for injustice and justify killing people and that’s not reasonable,” said Capt. Phil Tingirides, who chaired a board that stripped Dorner of his badge. “The end never justifies the means.”

Also, newly released surveillance video showed Dorner tossing several items into a Dumpster behind an auto parts store in National City on Monday. The store’s manager told FOX5 in San Diego that an employee found a magazine full of bullets, a military belt and a military helmet. Majid Yahyai said he and the employee took the items across the street to a police station.

Many search warrants have been issued including Dorner’s mother’s La Palma home, but police are tip-lipped as the ongoing investigation continues.

  • First Degree Murder
  • Armed Robbery

Authorities having been searching for Jason Derek Brown, 43, who has been on the run since late 2004 when he shot an armored car guard and fled with stolen money in Phoenix, Arizona, right outside of a Phoenix movie theater.

Immediately after being named the suspect in the homicide, Brown fled Phoenix and went to Henderson, Nevada and later travelled to Las Vegas. While there, he had swapped his BMW for a black Escalade. In January, 2005, authorities found Brown’s Cadillac Escalade abandoned in the parking lot of Portland International Airport in Oregon.

The one-time Salt Lake City resident and Laguna Beach native who attended Laguna Beach High School, could now be taking advantage of Mormon church members to stay hidden from public view, the FBI’s lead agent on the case said.

Although Brown is described as a ‘show off’ who likes to party, authorities believe he could be hiding among the Mormon and say he is a ‘skilled liar’ who has a ‘surfer dude’  appearance and a common name which could help him easily blend in among a crowd. He also speaks fluent French and is a former Mormon who once served LDS mission in France.

On December 8, 2007, three years after his first degree murder charge, Brown was listed on FBI’s Most Wanted List as the 489th Most Wanted fugitive and FBI has been looking for him ever since. It’s now 2013 and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has now upgraded him to FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives.

In 2005, less than one year after the murder, authorities received over 200 leads with the majority of leads being outside of Arizona, even some possible sightings in Canada. Most of the sightings haven’t been confirmed however, if it is then he could be on the move in any state.

The most recent confirmed sighting was in August 2008, when an acquaintance of Brown recognized him while they were stopped at a traffic light near Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City. Their mutual recognition prompted Brown to drive through the stoplight. Aware that Brown was a fugitive, the witness informed police of the sighting. According to him, Brown had longer hair and a deeper tan than in the 2004 photograph of his wanted poster. Brown is considered armed and extremely dangerous and those with a possible sighting should contact police immediately and avoid confronting Brown themself.

Possible Location(s): Brown has ties to California, Arizona, and Utah. In the past, he has traveled to France and Mexico. Additionally, he may be in the possession of a Glock 9mm and a .45 caliber handgun. 

Personality: Brown speaks fluent French and has a Master’s Degree in International Business. He is an avid golfer, snowboarder, skier, and dirt biker. Brown enjoys being the center of attention and has been known to frequent nightclubs where he enjoys showing off his high-priced vehicles, boats, and other toys. Brown was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and completed his Mormon mission near Paris, France.

Allow A DNA-Test For Kristen Blaise Lobato

Duran Bailey died a gruesome death. The homeless man met his end on July 8, 2001. His killer didn’t stop with the fatal blow to the back of his head. The perpetrator stabbed him, slashed his throat, knocked out his teeth and severed his penis. The medical examiner counted 30 injuries to his genitals and upper body. Between the bruising and the blood, Bailey wasn’t just killed, he was brutalized beyond almost all recognition.

Bailey’s indignities didn’t end with his death. After the killer finished with his body, that person buried him in garbage, the refuse from the Flamingo Road dumpster where the bloody crime occurred.

His killer fled from there. But to where? Police say Panaca. That’s where they arrested 18-year-old Kirstin Blaise Lobato more than 10 days after the crime.

Others aren’t so sure. Lobato’s supporters, who have followed the case from day one, say prosecutors got the wrong person. While Lobato languished in jail, they said, Bailey’s killer remained at large. And they think the only way to free their friend may be to find the real murderer.

To that end, they recruited the Innocence Project, an organization that has freed hundreds of wrongly convicted prisoners. The group has offered to underwrite DNA testing in the Lobato case. Kirstin’s supporters hope some piece of cellular detritus, a scrap of a genetic fingerprint, will blow the old case wide open again.

There’s just one problem. So far, the district attorney’s office, District Court and state Supreme Court have blocked efforts to test the evidence. A petition on Change.org urging the DA to allow testing has garnered more than 125,000 virtual signatures. But the office hasn’t budged. – Click Link To Read Full Story: http://lasvegascitylife.com/sections/news/update-da-dna-and-kirstin-lobato-murder-case.html
