This guy is a serious threat and the LAPD is doing all the can to stop him. To include posting the largest bounty in the history of bounties in Los Angeles.
What makes this individual so dangerous is that he is a former police officer and military veteran with a specialty in military intelligence. He actually targeted and killed the family of one of his intended targets–meaning he has crossed the threshold of extreme violence, and he is not done. Here is a quote from his manifesto which gives you an idea about his mindset.
The Violence of action will be HIGH. I am the reason TAC alert was established. I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty. ISR is my strength and your weakness. You will now live the life of the prey. Your RD’s and homes away from work will be my AO and battle space. I will utilize every tool within INT collections that I learned from NMITC in Dam Neck. You have misjudged a sleeping giant. There is no conventional threat assessment for me. JAM, New Ba’ath party, 1920 rev BGE, ACM, AAF, AQAP, AQIM and AQIZ have nothing on me. Do not deploy airships or gunships. SA-7 Manpads will be waiting. As you know I also own Barrett .50’s so your APC are defunct and futile…
You better have all your officers radio/phone muster (code 1) on or off duty every hour, on the hour.
Do not attempt to shadow or conduct any type of ISR on me. I have the inventory listing of all UC vehicles at Piper Tech and the home addresses of any INT analyst at JRIC and detachment locations. My POA is always POI and always true. This will be a war of attrition and a Pyrrhic and Camdean Victory for myself. You may have the resources and manpower but you are reactive and predictable in your op plans and TTP’s. I have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving. Do not waste your time with briefs and tabletops.
Whatever pre-planned responses you have established for a scenario like me, shelve it. Whatever contingency plan you have, shelve it. Whatever tertiary plan you’ve created, shelve it. I am a walking exigent circumstance with no OFF or reset button. JRIC, DOJ, LASD, FBI and other local LE can’t assist and should not involve themselves in a matter that does not concern them. For all other agencies, do not involve yourself in this capture or recovery of me. Look at the big picture of the situation. They (LAPD) created the situation. I will harm no outside agency unless it is a deadly force/IDOL situation. With today’s budgeting and fiscal mess, you guys can not afford lose several officers to IOD or KIA/EOW. Plus, other officers should not have to take on the additional duties and responsibilities of dead officers. Think about their families, outside agencies, Chiefs/Directors.
All of his actions points toward some serious planning. My guess is that all of his initial actions were done to send a message and draw the police into a massive dragnet. A dragnet that will eventually putter out as resources become thin and leads diminish. So it makes sense why they would put up a massive bounty to take advantage of the news and spectacle of it now, and then let the hunters do their thing out there as the police effort wanes. Which is why I wanted to post this and get it out there to the FJ readership.
I need all of your help for this manhunt. He might call upon folks he might of trained with in the past for help, and he will be perusing the forums and Facebook pages for information. In order to catch him, everyone needs to be aware of what this guy is all about and how he operates so that ‘we’ can get inside of his OODA. As it stands, he has the advantage, but once you get enough true hunters on his tail, all focused on the prize, then the odds will increase for one of these hunters to actually take advantage of him screwing up. It is called relentless pursuit, and the more guys on this thing, the better. Get Christopher Dorner before he kills again. –Matt
