assault-still-shot-nj-suspectHUFFINGTONPOST — Police in New Jersey are using nanny cam footage to track down a robbery suspect who punched and choked a suburban mom while her terrified 3-year-old daughter watched.

At 10:30 a.m. Friday, the suspect kicked down the locked door of a Millburn, N.J., house and assaulted an unsuspecting homeowner.

“I knew that if I started screaming, my daughter would too, and I was afraid she would get hurt,” the victim told News12 N.J. “I took it. I didn’t cry the entire time.”

The suspect made off with an unspecified amount of jewelry, including the woman’s wedding ring, according to WABC. The woman’s 1-year-old daughter was upstairs during the incident. Neither child was harmed.

“The man viciously beat the woman,” Capt. Michael Palardy told Millburn Patch.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated for injuries to her face and legs, according to The Star-Ledger.

FBI-Top-10-Fugitives

Click here for individuals descriptions of each fugitive listed.

On March 13, 2013, the FBI updated its list of “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” by adding the name Edwin Rivera Gracias – seen here, bottom row, 3rd from left.

According to the FBI’s website, the list is a publicity program designed to publicize particularly dangerous fugitives who might not otherwise merit nationwide attention, according to the FBI’s website.

The program was founded on March 14, 1950, when a reporter asked late FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover for the names and descriptions of the “toughest guys” the Bureau would like to capture. The resulting article generated so much publicity and had so much appeal that Hoover implemented the top ten program.

Since its inception, 497 fugitives have been on the top ten list. Among those listed, the FBI says that 466 have been apprehended or located, including 154 fugitives who were captured or located as a result of citizen cooperation.

The current top ten list is maintained on the FBI website and relies on the assistance of citizens and the media. A reward of up to $100,000 is offered by the FBI for information which leads directly to the arrest of a Top Ten fugitive. Members in the Top Ten list are not ranked.

christopher_dornerFeb 13, 2013, UPDATE – CALIFORNIA — According to CBS News, charred remains were found inside a burned-out cabin near Big Bear Lake,.. east of Los Angeles, CA. DNA test have not yet confirmed if it is in fact Dorner.

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.
