Camping Gear Found in Burned Truck of LAPD Cop Suspected in 3 Killings

Authorities find camping gear in burned truck owned by former LAPD cop suspected in 3 killings

Published February 10, 2013

Camping gear and weapons were found inside the burned-out truck belonging to Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three killings, authorities said Sunday.

The Nissan pickup was found Thursday in the ski resort town of Big Bear Lake in Southern California, a location where the manhunt for Dorner is taking place.

The truck was so charred that investigators couldn’t be more specific about the nature of its contents, said Los Angeles police Sgt. Rudy Lopez.

SWAT teams with air support and bloodhounds fanned out for the fourth day to search for Dorner, who has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues whom he blames for ending his career. The effort was significantly scaled back as the weekend went on, with 25 officers and a single helicopter looking for clues in the forest and going door-to-door at some 600 cabins in the San Bernardino mountains, about 80 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles.

Authorities planned a 1 p.m. news conference in Los Angeles to announce a reward for information leading to the arrest of the 33-year-old fugitive.

“Hopefully the reward will motivate people that may be involved with assisting him or might be reluctant to talk to us to call us and to put an end to this,” Lopez said. Officials were trying to raise up to $1 million dollars, according to LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith.

On Saturday, Chief Charlie Beck said officials would re-examine the allegations by Dorner that his law enforcement career was undone by racist colleagues. While he promised to hear out Dorner if he surrenders, Beck stressed that he was ordering a review of his 2007 case because he takes the allegation of racism in his department seriously.

“I do this not to appease a murderer. I do it to reassure the public that their police department is transparent and fair in all the things we do,” the chief said in a statement.

Authorities suspect Dorner in a series of attacks in Southern California over the past week that left three people dead. Authorities say he has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues whom he blames for ending his career. The killings and threats that Dorner allegedly made in an online rant have led police to provide protection to 50 families, Beck said.

A captain 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.”

Investigators have been examining the truck to determine if it broke down or was set ablaze as a diversion. Police say the truck had a broken axle. Investigators are trying to determine whether it was already broken when they found it, or whether it was damaged when it was towed away.

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.

On Friday night, authorities served a search warrant and collected evidence from a Buena Park storage unit as part of their investigation. Irvine police Lt. Julia Engen wouldn’t elaborate on the nature of the evidence or say who had rented the unit.

Earlier Friday, another warrant was served at a La Palma house belonging to Dorner’s mother. Officers collected 10 bags of evidence, including five electronic items.

In his online manifesto, Dorner vowed to use “every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordnance and survival training I’ve been given” to bring “warfare” to the LAPD and its families.

Dorner served in the Navy, earning a rifle marksman ribbon and a pistol expert medal. He was assigned to a naval undersea warfare unit and various aviation training units, according to military records. He took leave from the LAPD for a six-month deployment to Bahrain in 2006 and 2007.

The flight training that he received in the Navy prompted the Transportation Security Administration to issue an alert, warning the general aviation community to be on the lookout for Dorner. The extent of his potential flying skills wasn’t known, the bulletin said.

Feb. 1 was his last day with the Navy and also the day CNN’s Anderson Cooper received a package that contained a note on it that read, in part, “I never lied.” A coin riddled with bullet holes that former Chief William Bratton gave out as a souvenir was also in the package.

Police said it was a sign of planning by Dorner before the killing began.

On Feb. 3, police say Dorner shot and killed a couple in a parking garage at their condominium in Irvine. The woman was the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing.

Dorner wrote in his manifesto that he believed the retired captain had represented the interests of the department over his.

Detectives are investigating a taunting phone call that may have been made by Dorner to the retired police captain.

Two law enforcement officers who requested anonymity because of the ongoing investigation told The Associated Press on Sunday they are trying to determine if the call days after the killing was made by Dorner or a man posing as him.

The caller allegedly told retired police Capt. Randal Quan that he should have done a better job protecting his daughter, Monica Quan.

Hours after authorities identified Dorner as a suspect in the double murder, police believe Dorner shot and grazed an LAPD officer in Corona and then used a rifle to ambush two Riverside police officers early Thursday, killing one and seriously wounding the other.

The crime spree spanned across a wide swath of Southern California, prompting several police agencies, including the FBI and US Marshall Service, to form a joint investigative task force.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Sniper Shots: Somali Pirates

30 Yard Sniper Shots on Somali Pirates
Somali Pirates?

First of all, I have to say these pirates had to be tactical morons.

Did they think U.S. Navy SEAL snipers couldn’t hit their targets at 30 yards?

I mean, I’m sure I can’t hold a candle to a Navy SEAL’s marksmanship, but even I can hit a man at 30 yards with a good handgun offhand.
Real Somali Pirates

These guys I’m guessing had sniper rifles with optics and probably shot from some sort of supported position.

Of course, the two ships would have been in motion making the shots much harder, plus the pirates were undoubtedly moving around to some degree.

Still, I wouldn’t have felt safe a mile from those snipers!

My only question is how they got those 3 pirates to expose their heads.

The lifeboat was not like one of the old open top Titantic style life boats.

It was covered, so in rough seas waves just won’t splash over the sides and fill the hull with water.

Did they promise them food or the $2 million dollar ransom or something?

I just heard one pirate was visible through the window of the lifeboat, the other two were sticking their heads out the door for fresh air.

I can only assume these guys were better fishermen than pirates.

Anyway, great job US Navy and God bless Captain Phillips and his crew and family!

Sniper Shots: Semi-Auto .50 Caliber

Sniper Shots:

SEALS Get New Semi-Auto .50 Caliber BMG

Sniper Shots are going to get a whole lot easier.

Looks like the U.S. Navy SEALs just got a brand new tool for the War on Terror.

The boys at NSWC Crane (Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane, Indiana) have apparently been busy little beavers over there.

One of the projects they’ve been working on is this little .50 BMG badboy.

It’s called the AS50 Semi-Automatic Rifle, and it’s the result of NSWC Crane’s teaming with Accuracy International (AI).

At approx. 27 pounds empty/dry weight (according to the AI representative at their booth), the AI AS50 is relatively lightweight…

The Accuracy International (AI) AS50 Semi-Auto Rifle (.50 BMG) was designed specifically for U.S. military Special Operations (SPECOPS) personnel/snipers.

U.S. Navy SEALs

More specifically, it was designed for the U.S. Navy SEALs to provide them with anti-materiel/long-range interdiction capability, combined with fast follow-up shot capability, in a combat-rugged, lightweight weapons package that can be assembled and broken down quickly and easily, and maintained easily…

Sounds pretty good.

As if that’s not enough, the AI rep at the booth told us that the AS50 semi-auto .50 BMG rifle creates less felt recoil than their AW50 bolt-action .50 BMG rifle…

Magazine capacity is 5 rounds for the AS50.

The magazine is detachable box type.

AI’s whole focus is to combine match-grade accuracy with military-application reliability and ruggedness, and it looks like it just might have succeeded with the AS50.

Tactical Sniper Kill Shot

Carlos Hathcock

A Canadian sniper sharpshooter in Afghanistan has been confirmed as hitting an enemy soldier at a range of 2,310 meters (7565 ft/1.43 miles), the longest recorded and confirmed sniper shot in history.

The previous record of 2,250 meters (7369 ft/1.4 miles) was set by US Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock in Vietnam in 1967.

The Canadian sniper was at an altitude of 8,500 feet and the target, across a valley, was at 9,000 feet.

Canadian sniper teams often operated in support of US infantry units, which were grateful for their help.

The record lasted only one day, until a second Canadian sniper hit an enemy soldier at 2,400 meters (7860 feet/1.48 miles).

The Canadian snipers fire special 50-caliber McMillan tactical rifles, which are bolt-action weapons with five-round magazines.

50-Caliber McMillan

The Canadian snipers were the only Canadian troops operating without helmets or flak jackets as they had too much other equipment to carry.

Each three-man sniper team has one sniper rifle, three standard rifles Canadian (C7s), one of them with a 203mm grenade launcher.

Barrett .50 Semi-Auto M-107

Americans use the Barrett .50 semi-auto M-107.

They have a nick named the Barrett sniper rifle, Grim Reaper.

‘Grim Reapers’ indeed.

So far, so good.
