US To Use Drones In Chris Dorner Manhunt

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: this just in - Authorities offer $1 million reward for information leading to arrest of ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner

We were hoping to evade coverage of the latest mass distraction du jour, that of the former LAPD officer Chris Dorner who recently went rogue following a three man murder spree and who has vowed to kill again as per his 6,000 word manifesto, but the US government had made it impossible following confirmation
that the search for Dorner is now the first official drone-hunt in US history.

The Express reports:

Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil.


A senior police source said: “The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.”


Asked directly if drones have already been deployed, Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz, who is jointly leading the task force, said: “We are using all the tools at our disposal.”


The use of drones was later confirmed by Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who revealed agents have been prepared for Dorner to make a dash for the Mexican border since his rampage began.


He said: “This agency has been at the forefront of domestic use of drones by law enforcement. That’s all I can say at the moment.”

And once Dorner is found by remote-control, it will be again up to drones to secure his "elimination." If for no other reason than to perform a ground test of just how the recently enacted drone-facilitated extermination of US citizens sits with various instances of the US judicial system.

Check the source.  There's something fishy about that one.  Because it's the only one.  And at last count there are five versions out there.


The real one was posted on a English Essayist forum and it sticks out like a sore thumb in the middle of a conversation about Richard the 3rd.

Did anyone else see how two LAPD cops emptied their guns into the newspaper delivery peoples truck in front of the police commanders house they were guarding ?

Supernova Born's picture

Drones, million dollar rewards, shoot then ask questions, machine gunning newspaper delivery ladies and any pickup in a square mile of an LAPD's house?

Pathetic display of the lengths the bloated government beast will go to protect itself while citizens are left on their own.

Never let a crisis go to waste. The nose of the drone is under the tent and American approves.

Well the whole thing gives me a tented condition in any case.   Quality circuses these are!   Unfortunately the Panem would violate my low carb diet.

From June 20, 2012

“Here’s something to look for, a trial balloon of sorts,” stated my source. “Pick a state in the desert southwest, and consider a hideous threat to our national security. Now, wait for Obama, Napolitano and representatives of other agencies appear in a solemn news conference saying that they saved the country from a nearly successful attack on our soil by using an armed drone to strike a target on the ground before the terrorist attack could succeed. And the majority of Americans will applaud with pride. It will all be staged, although the true facts confined to only the highest levels of government.”

I'm beginning to wish that my one uncle, a survivor of the Battle of the Bulge, had brought back a German 88mm anti-aircraft gun instead of s dinky little Luger. 

How long before personal "Star Wars" anti-missile lasers reach the public? Can we look forward to getting them on eBay? Or should I write a letter to the Iranian government asking how to hack a Predator?

...a world without feelings, without knowledge, without hope.... Books are burned because some people are offended by their lack of political correctness....hunted down by helicopters and a robotic Mechanical Hound, with the chases televised live. People sit in their homes and are mesmerized by TV screens showing trivia or worse, and the novel ends with a nuclear holocaust.

Of course.

And late fees & penalties too if you don't comply...unless of course if you're Little Timmy Geithner where they'll be waived.

But don't worry they won't fire on Americans?!

LOL They already have been and continue to do so.

Some quotes from the Christopher Dorner Manifesto ... citing the hopeless corruption of the US courts and judiciary and police:

« ... I have attempted all legal court efforts within appeals at the Superior Courts and California Appellate courts. This is my last resort.

Self Preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death.

Those of you who “go along to get along” have no backbone and destroy the foundation of courage. You are the enablers of those who are guilty of misconduct. You are just as guilty as those who break the code of ethics and oath you swore.

It is endless the amount of times per week officers arrest an individual, label him a suspect-arrestee-defendant and then before arraignment or trial realize that he is innocent based on evidence.

Don’t honor these fallen officers/dirtbags. ... Why would you value their lives when they clearly don’t value yours or your family members lives?

How do you know when a police officer is lying??? When he begins his sentence with, "Based on my experience and training ..." »

A hero? Please.

He's not a terrorist either (whatever that non-definable label actually means).

The press and police say he killed an innocent young woman and her fiance because of a wrong the girl's parent did to him. Maybe he did. How about instead of a hero or a 'terrorist' if we treat him like a suspect in a murder case? Maybe we could even give him the fair trial he seems to have missed before.

CompassionateFascist's picture

Dorner missed nothing...including his targets. He is a white-hating, Jew-programed Congoid doing what he was set up to do. And being lionized by the Jew MSM as a "victim of society", also as per usual. I am surprised, however, to see ZH'rs falling for the scam. A rather more important situation: Darrel Steinberg and the rest of the Sacramento shabbatz goy pols are about to declare Cal illegal "any weapon with a detachable magazine". That will put several hundred thousand California men, and not a few women, Down by Law. Come and get us, Jew Steinberg. And we won't be "running for the border".  

BeanusCountus's picture

We will never see if he is a hero. Truth is in short supply. But I read his "manifesto". Articulate, for the most part. Personal opinion is that people rarely take these actions if they don't truly believe they have been wronged. Desperate, for sure. But revenge, if justified, has no boundaries. Like in war. Innocent people have to go down to send a message. (Hiroshima maybe?). Hope he's not crazy. Cause it would be a great time to let the powers that be start thinking about consequences.

Manthong's picture

I don’t see him as a hero but he may be a bellwether for armed and oppressed people in California (and elsewhere) regarding how it is possible to turn your weapons on the state and theirs and to twist their chains if they piss you off enough and you feel you have nothing else to lose.

BeanusCountus's picture

Neither do I. Yet. Is he just crazy? Could be. But I don't think so. Wrong maybe, but not crazy. The man knows he is in the last days of his life. He could surrender with hands up, and the media would report he was killed in a shoot out with law enforcement. Whenever I see the chief of LA pd on the news begging for info, offering a $1M reward, sweating, labeling him as a domestic terrorist, and promising a REVIEW OF HIS CASE AT THE SAME TIME, I know he's as good as gone. My guess is he is dangerous. To the establishment. He is not dangerous to the general public. Only to the people he perceives to have wronged him. That's probably ten people. And, apparently, to their relatives. Government officials should take note. It's not a game you can always control. Things can, and do, get out of hand. Like say, when you control every aspect of the way they live? Through taxes? Or mandates? Like obamacare? Only pont is, bound to be individuals that don't agree. And some might consider it to be an affront to their ability to survive. Not good, things can get ugly quickly.

"The press and the police say" is your first mistake.

Five8Charlie's picture

My phrasing was intentional. The police and the press say he did it. I personally don't know.

The press reports what the police say. The police have their own reasons for saying what they say. In this case, I don't think telling the truth about Dorner is going to be high on their list. But three people are reported dead and Dorner's 'manifesto' says he was going to do exactly this.

Is Dorner's manifesto even real? How far down the rabbit hole do we go?

Freddie's picture

He loves Hollywood, TV, celebs, O, gun control, Piers Morgan, sadistic Tarantino films, hates whitey though he is veiled about it. 

He is just another CA LA PD govt unionized thug and fat one at that.  They made fun of him because he was a fat tub who could barely run 50 yards.  Dorner is pissed because the black AA race card don't work like it used to in CA.  He is below hsipanics and asians in playing the race/racism card.  Maybe he pointed out some other scum thug beating up some guy but LA PD/CA/Hollywood/USA is all a rotten festering apple of corruption now.

He is just pissed that he got kicked off the govt unionized worker gravy train.  He is for gun control and would gladly show up at your house with the govt to disarm you.  He, LA PD  and California deserve each other and created each other.

Hobbleknee's picture

Or maybe his manifesto is his own psy-op, so the media cannot demonize freedom fighters.

Dooud's picture

I see what you did there, man.....
....this looks a bit too much like the start of operation mayhem, this Dorner guy was in MY fight club. Tyler, is mayhem a go?

Race Car Driver's picture

Chris Doner isn't a hero or a terrorist. He's not a rebel, revolutionary, freedom fighter or patriot. He's an ex-cop with a grudge and a penchant for violence. Surprise.

He purportedly supports status quo for everything other than the LAPD.

BFD. This is probably a psyop to begin with.

nmewn's picture

Agreed for the most part.

I have to say, the quality of cop psyche tests before hiring certainly has dropped off ;-)

Psych tests are one of the easiest parts of the system to game.  Learned how to do that 25 years ago in the military.  Tell 'em what they want to hear.

> Its much harder for a crazy person to act sane, than a sane person to act crazy ;-)

Yeah... not so much. Look at all the criminally insane who not only have good paying jobs - but who make and enforce 'the rules' on the rest of us. Supposed 'Leaders'. These people are batshit nuts - crazier than shithouse rats (did you see W's self-portrait of his toes in the bath?) - but decade after decade, the bulk of the ignorant masses give validity to this nonsense.

nmewn's picture

Most criminals are not crazy, just lazy.

Now there is a good case to be made for once in positions of absolute power they become

Race Car Driver's picture

I wasn't addressing criminals. I was addressing crazy people who act sane in order to be criminal... with absolute power over the rest of us, no less. That their insanity leads them to be criminals does not discount their insanity nor their ability to dupe the bulk of the population.

nmewn's picture

Well, it could be that the bulk of people are stupid who look up to, elect or otherwise promote people who are only slightly less stupid than them.

It still wouldn't make them insane. You and I may look at it as insanity but they're really just stupid.

I mean really, we have a congresscritter who thinks there is a possibility of Guam tipping over, economists who think putting ink on a piece of paper has some sort of eternal value and criminals who feed off of both knowing they are stupid.

It still doesn't make any of them insane, stupid and/or criminal yes. Insane no.

He's a guy who was raised on race baiting and victimhood.  Probably games the system when it suits him.  He got pissed when the system turned on him.  Too fucking bad.

Donner isn't a hero.  He is, very believably, a victim of a wicked system of tyranny.

However justified he must feel at being wronged, murdering children is wrong, wrong, wrong.  Muredering innocents to his case is wrong.

That's not heroic.

Our desire for simple false dichotomies has played a key role in getting us all into this mess.

Let's resist the temptation.

How to kill drones :

Anybody else think it odd that Dorner left cold weather gear and night vision goggles in that burned truck? Leaving a couple of rifles might make sense because of the weight. But warm gear and the goggles...? Why not use it to escape and evade, even if he happened to have a stash nearby?

Unfortunately, that's the "winning" trade.

Unfortunately, that's a wicked reality.
