    I live in the OC so needless to say it is huge here.

    Everyone is scared of this jerk.

    The manifesto lists something like 40 people he wants dead. Even personnel from his elementary school because he stated he was bullied and no one did anything about it.

    He sent Anderson Cooper a special police coin he received when he joined the LAPD but he shot it all up with his gun. It had 3 bullet holes in it.

    And the latest today that came out was that four days after he shot Monica Quan he called her father Randy Quan (who was on the LAPD with him and had something to do with Dorner being fired from the LAPD) and told him that he did not do a good enough job watching over his daughter. He also proceeded to say something along the lines that he (Dorner) never had a family so he is taking his.
    Awful.

    The update on the two ladies mistakenly shot; they have been given a brand new truck. But like the commentator on the News said it is doubtful these ladies will ever have to work again. :thumbsup2

    I seriously hope the cops themselves paid for this new truck and not the taxpayers. We should not have to bail out cops who shoot at innocent citizens!

    Those guys need to go to jail, just like anyone else would.

    Handbag Lady, are you listening to/watching the news right now?

    Hooooooly cow...they are having a gun battle up in Big Bear..supposedly have Dorner cornered...

    A news reporter is kind of in the middle of it...they're yelling at him to leave, but he doesn't know where to go. VERY scary!!!!

    You can hear all the gunfire and yelling over the reporter's cell phone...and there are possible reports of 2 officers down, although not confirmed.

    ETA: They just confirmed 2 deputies have been shot. Reporter is no longer reporting live on air - not sure if it had to do with the expletives being yelled at him or if he moved out of the area.

    Regular programming has been pre-empted here on the SF TV stations.

    I hope they finally get this guy.

    Our local news in Nashville, TN has been carrying the story for several days.

    I hope no one else loses their life:sad2:

    One of the two deputies shot by Dorner today has died.

    Sickening.

    They've been talking about this for days now.

    Apparently, the news agencies have been asked not to report on what is happening right now there, so they're standing by while we wait.

    They're also reporting that he is in a vacation home. The owner saw her cabin on the news when they showed a picture of it and called the police to let them know what was in her cabin. I'm glad there weren't any people in there.

    Death total is up to four :sad1:

    Just reporting now (16:20) that the cabin is engulfed in fire - black smoke. They had shot tear gas there, and hearing that they are not sending anyone to put it out.

    Just like Waco, when all else fails, the government will set you on fire. :sad2:

    That was what I was thinking as well.

    At least this time there weren't several dozen innocent women and children in there with him getting burnt alive in the process.

    I hope he was the only one in that cabin.

    Actually it is a fire NEXT to the cabin. That is what KTLA News that I am watching is reporting. Not a cabin but a fire in the woods NEXT to the cabin.

    Watching on CNN (near Philadelphia) and I am bewildered!!!!! They are going to set the enitre mountain on fire to get this guy. I simply don't get why they didn't wait this guy out a bit and put a better plan together. Reminds me of an incident in Philly years ago when the police set an entire neighborhood on fire in order to get to a group.

    CNN also just mentioned-----wood cabins, propane, kerosene, ammunition, side of mountain, 20 degree weather--don't get why the rush--and they aren't even sure where this guy is........

    If they let the standoff go on for hours or days it means that the resources guarding the area are tied up for hours or days, costing tons of money. Plus there is the risk he will kill more innocent people. This has gone on long enough as it is.

    Not sure that fire is the best alternative though. They should just send in a swat team covered in head-to-toe Kevlar and get the guy.

    The News is now saying Dorner is setting or shooting off the ammunition that is setting the fires not the police.

    I wonder if the owner of the cabin has "house burned down during police stand off" insurance coverage.

    The owner of the Cabin JUST rented it out THIS past weekend to this couple that are in there. The owner turned on the News and realized it was HIS cabin and called the Police to tell them who he rented it to and who is in there and that it is a couple.
    Owner also said that it has NOTHING in it. No electricity no running water nothing.

    NOW they are confirming that the cabin is on fire.
    it is reported that Dorner said he will NOT come out alive.

    I have a feeling if the couple was in there when he got there, they are no longer with us. From what I've heard he wasn't a take hostages kind. He was a kill whoever is in my way kind.

    KFI said the cabin is on fire - they heard one gunshot and the fire caught on fire, and they've heard ammo exploding ....

    So, Fox News has this:
