Sheriff: There was no intent
to burn cabin to get Dorner

USA Today, by Donna Leinwand Leger*

Original Article

Deputies did not intentionally burn down the Southern California mountain cabin where fugitive Christopher Dorner apparently made his deadly last stand Tuesday, the San Bernardino County sheriff said Wednesday. "We did not intentionally burn down that cabin to get Mr. Dorner out," Sheriff John McMahon said at an afternoon news conference. He said deputies initially fired conventional "cold" tear gas into the cabin in Seven Oaks, near Big Bear Lake, then switched to "pyrotechnic-type" rounds" known as "burners." Authorities have strong evidence that the man deputies tracked to the

Words like, "Burn down the [M F´er]" are heard several times on the police scanner. The place caught fire instantly when they used the "burners". If he had hundreds or thousands of pounds of ammo, then we might believe this immediate fire was possible. Sorry folks, they are lying.

Dormer was evil, but the cops used the Waco, Texas solution, and that is scary.

Correct. You intentionally burned down that cabin to keep the lid on Mr. Dorner.

It´s all spin now. This nightmare is over; it´s now all about spinning and b-essing one of the most rotten, bungling and corrupt police departments ever into a sympathetic heroic fantasy.

Bite into it if you want to, but I won´t. I live here.

Dorner was an off-the-hook murdering maniac, yes -- but what you need to understand is that the LAPD and police departments throughout SoCal are loaded with exactly that kind of menace.

Check out the Fullerton PD.

"Domestic terrorist?"

There are lots of bad things you could call Dorner, but that isn´t one.

The word is being abused, both by people who won´t use it when they should and those who use it when they shouldn´t.

In the same way, the former Soviet Union used "mental illness".

"Authorities have strong evidence that the man deputies tracked to the vacation cabin looked and behaved like Dorner."

So much for being sure of one´s target... what will they say if it were determined that this WASN´T Dorner?
I realize that in all likelihood it is Dorner, but for crying out loud, what a thing to say! That the guy in the cabin "looked and behaved" like him, so what the heck, ´Break out the MP5, boys! Send in the tear gas!´
Sheesh.

I can usually tell when the "Authorities" are not telling the truth, the whole truth. they are not telling the whole truth on this one, at all! Why? A: They are terribly afraid of this case. The "Dorner Monster" scared them, embarrassed the administration in it´s try for destruction of individual 2nd amendment rights, and the LA cops behavior of shooting the two news paper delivery women was just an outrage of amateurish skittishness. In addition, the cops had a direct hand in creating Dorner´s Rampage! Another similar example is the East Hollywood shootout, LA cops left a whole lot unexplained after that disaster which they have not answered for to this very day. This one is going to be swept quickly under the rug as well. Watch how little we hear of it from now on. Case closed- they hope.

Careful #1, not Waco, Texas solution but Reno/Clinton Show. Waco, Texas had nothing to do with the burning down of the Davidian Branch. It is all on Janet Reno and Bill Clinton. And yeah...when you announce over the radio "Burn the M*&&^& F*&*&^& down" and then lob in incendiary devices...yeah that was your intent. Any officer trained in SWAT or Warrant Division knows when you toss those things, there is a better than 50/50 chance something is going up in flames due to environment.

Good gosh look at the innocent people these cops fired on by mistake. Three other people were almost killed by police. They never intended to take him alive. I´m as much a law and order supporter as most conservatives, but there are plenty of dirty cops and Police Departments in Southern California are full of them.

The spin from the police spokespeople is distressing. Everyone remember what the authorities said LIVE on TV last Thursday? I do. The reporters asked if the Big Bear ski area would be SAFE for the weekend. They had received a good storm and ski resort surely needed the business. Well, he said ALL areas around the ski runs were perfectly safe. How could he say that. Public safety first my foot. Everyone is fortunate Dorner didn´t decide to go "hunting" skiers. How can they say there was no "intent" when we heard the scanner?

#1, I too immediately thought of Waco when I heard about the "incendiary" tear gas rounds.

In another action reminiscent of Waco, the police used some kind of bull-dozer to break down the walls of the cabin in which Dorner was holed up.

Don´t get me wrong: Dorner richly deserved a painful death.

But the painful reminders of Waco, where many children were burnt to death, stir up terrible memories of government power run amok.

And remember who was really in charge of Waco:
Eric Holder, who was assistant AG, under Janet Reno, under BJ Clinton.

Here is an interesting article on the home - considerably larger than a "cabin" - where Dorner holed up. It was built by Bill Glass´s father after he returned from WWI, it was their family home, and he was raised in it. It would have been a lovely place for a boy to grow up.

The difference between the military in a war and the police enforcing the laws is that the military immediately kills their opponents, no discussion. Theoretically, police arrest people, gather facts and turn this over to prosecutors to have courts decide guilt or innocence and punishment, if warranted.

As the police have more and more SWAT teams, they are steadily crossing into military behavior. This needs to be strenuously resisted. Dorner should have been waited out, or shot if he continued to shoot at them, but the concept of the police deciding on summary execution in cold blood should be chilling to all of us. They knew the incendiary gas rounds were very likely to burn down the building.

Since the release of the new IPCC report on the current and future effects of climate change, climate hawks (including myself) have made the same very basic argument that we always do: Climate change looks bad, potentially very bad, and therefore we should curtail the greenhouse gas emissions which cause it. Clive Crook writes that this is approach is somehow responsible for public skepticism of climate change: The main reason for the disconnect between the science and the public is the gross tactical incompetence of the climate-science community, as it´s called, and its political champions.

BEIJING - The governor of China´s restive far western region of Xinjiang wrote on Monday that Islamist militants were trying to ban laughter at weddings and crying at funerals, as he appealed to people to stamp out the "tumor" of extremism. Xinjiang, resource-rich and strategically located on the borders of central Asia, has been beset by violence for years, blamed by the government on Islamist militants and separatists. Exiles and many rights groups say the real cause of the unrest is China´s heavy-handed policies, including curbs on Islam and the culture and language of the Muslim Uighur people who call

Malaysia and Indonesia have banned the biblical epic Noah, joining other Muslim nations in vetoing the Hollywood movie because of its visual depiction of the prophet. Film censors in both countries said today that the portrayal of the ark-building prophet by Russell Crowe was against Islamic laws. Depictions of any prophet are shunned in Islam to avoid worship of a person rather than God. "The film Noah is not allowed to be screened in this country to protect the sensitivity and harmony in Malaysia´s multi-racial and multi-religious community," Film Censorship Board chairman Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid said in a statement.

Demonstrators stormed a provincial administration building in eastern Ukraine on Sunday and raised the Russian flag atop it, demanding the release of riot police accused of killing protesters in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in February. Police were negotiating with the demonstrators, who have called for supporters to rally around the Regional Security Administration building in Donetsk, about 200 kilometers (120 miles) from the Russian border. Video of the negotiations was being streamed live online by local news outlets. The protest is the latest challenge to Ukraine´s embattled new government, which took power after a revolt that toppled pro-Russian President Viktor

Controversial ‘Fight Church’

A new movie, “Fight Church,” raises the unusual question: “Can you love your neighbor while kneeing him in the face?” The documentary, by directors Daniel Junge and Bryan Storkel, is about pastors who practice mixed martial arts with their parishioners. “Tough guys need Jesus, too,” one parishioner explained in the trailer for the film. The controversial topic is raising eyebrows because Jesus obviously preached nonviolence and turning the other cheek. But Pastor Paul Burress, featured in the movie, defends his unlikely evangelization techniques. “We don’t fight out of meanness,” Burress of Trinity Church in Rochester, N.Y., told ABC News. “We

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."
