Video: Christopher Dorner, ex-L.A. cop, presumed dead after fiery cabin standoff

Update:Ex-L.A. cop Christopher Dorner has been the subject of a massive manhunt for more than a week after allegedly killing three , including former Denver resident Keith Lawrence; see previous coverage below. Now, the crisis appears at an end, with charred remains found in a gutted California cabin presumed to be Dorner, whose final rampage all but overshadowed the State of the Union address. Details, photos and video below.

As we noted in our earlier post, the search for Dorner has been concentrated in the California resort community of Big Bear. Plenty of dead ends marked the past several days, but at just past noon Pacific Time yesterday, law enforcers learned they were indeed on the right track.

As reported by ABC, a maid in the area dialed 911 and informed the dispatcher that she and a fellow staffer at a Big Bear resort had been held hostage in a cabin by a man she ID'd as Dorner.

The maid managed to get away, but by the time she did, Dorner had stolen a purple Nissan and taken off. The car was soon spotted by members of the San Bernardino Sheriff's Office, as well as staffers with the state's Fish and Game department. A shootout followed, but Dorner survived the gunfire and commandeered another vehicle -- a white pickup truck owned by Rick Heltebrake, who said Dorner, clad in camo and packing a rifle, told him, "I don't want to hurt you. Just get out and start walking up the road and take your dog with you."

Presumably, Heltebrake wasn't on Dorner's reported hit list of people he blamed for his sacking from the LAPD several years ago. But he pulled the trigger on a pair of deputies who spotted him shortly thereafter, with one seriously injured in the volley and the other dying as a result of his wounds, bringing the number of people he's suspected of murdering to four.

At that point, Dorner holed up in a cabin and an extended standoff began. Then, around 2 p.m., the cabin caught fire -- we still don't know how the blaze started -- and after the structure more or less burned to the ground, authorities cautiously moved in. During their search of the premises, they discovered human remains.

We understand that forensic tests are underway at this hour to determine if the body was that of Dorner. If it is, his psychotic assaults are at an end -- something we hope will provide some small comfort to Lawrence's family, several of whom continue to live in the Denver area.

If this cop killer in cali gains the martyrdom that the liberal media is giving him..the same martyrdom that led the LAPD to reopen his firing case.... if he goes down in history as a martyr instead of the cold blooded killer that he is....mark my words, we will see an irreversible spike in mass shootings. Everyone has been wronged. We don't go around killing everyone like a whiny bitch over it.

Funny how the evidence all gets torched in situations like this.

At least he's killing other piece of shit cops & not walking into a school, shopping mall, or movie theater, and blindly opening fire !

The part of this story that "journalists" still don't comment on is the obvious GANG VIOLENCE going on, complete with the killing of innocent bystanders. This is more evidence that the Blue Light Gang is just another violent gang. People join the gang thinking it's something benevolent, then once they find out, it's too late. Stay away from gangs, people--even the most dominant one that has regular popularity contests allowing you to vote for a preselected godfather.

If only homicidal ex-cops were allowed to Carry Firearms ... this kind of tragedy could have been prevented.

NRA's solution -- Arm ALL disgruntled mentally unhinged ex-cops

@rockiesfever ... yet you and half of America fawn over and worship Hollywood heroes -- "rogue" cops/soldiers who are willing to "uphold the Constitution" and "fight tyranny" within their own government by methods of violence and murder --  like Dirty Harry, Rambo, Schwarzenegger, Jason Bourne, Jack Bauer, etc

Hypocrite much?

@Juan_Leg

"piece of shit cops" they wont be such pieces of shit if someone came in and chopped off your other leg. They are exactly who youd call.

you get a gun to you or your dogs head youll be hoping for one of two things....cops or god. both of which you bash all the time.

Yes at least it wasnt another school shooting....but if theres a school shooting in LA or San Bern this piece of shit killed responders

@DonkeyHotay No real difference between homicidal cops and homicidal ex-cops. The only safe thing to do is to disarm all cops.

@rockiesfever According to a recent federal judge's ruling....The police are not just corrupt, it is their official POLICY....Good luck with that....

@rockiesfever The LAST people I would call if I wanted protection is the police. Cops show up AFTER school shootings...And in the case of Columbine...They waited outside until the shooting STOPPED....Reason: Officer Safety....You guys are all pathetic.....

@rockiesfever @Cognitive_Dissident Says YOU. 

Harry Browne used to have a great expression: "The government likes to break your legs and congratulate itelf for giving you crutches."

The monopoly government creates a system in which all normal market-based actions are illegal or otherwise punished, then pats itself on the back for providing "security." It's a protection racket. 

 NUFF SAID!

@rockiesfever If you were to ask random people on the street who they wanted to show up during a school shooting to 'selflessly' protect their kids and put down the threat, I GUARANTEE many people would choose a 'Dorner' type over the DPD or similar police agency.......People don't trust the police anymore....As they shouldn't....

of course they come after.....do you think the cops have telepathy?? they can not see the future and be there beforehand you dumbass...and its not due to officer safety, they do not enter because they dont know what civilians theyd be compromising by doing so.
