Yeah… About that $1 million reward

Reward in Christopher Dorner Manhunt Shrinks

The city of Riverside is pulling its pledge of $100,000 toward the $1 million reward offered during the manhunt for rogue ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner.

Dorner died in an apparent suicide during a standoff with authorities and cabin burning near Big Bear last month.

Because the Riverside City Council resolution stipulated the money was for information leading to Dorner’s arrest and conviction, the city will withdraw its pledge because neither condition was met, Riverside city spokeswoman Cindie Perry told NBCLA.

Riverside police officer Michael Crain was among four people killed by Dorner.

The city’s move comes a day after a peace officers’ union president told the Los Angeles Times that his organization was placing its pledge on hold, and said other donors had expressed similar misgivings.

LA’s mayor and police chief have said they want to see the reward paid.

Two claims have been made on the money – one by a man who was carjacked by Dorner, the other by a couple who was held captive by the fugitive.

Both incidents happened in the hours leading up to Dorner’s final standoff, and both parties called authorities to say they’d encountered a man who looked like the ex-officer whose 11,400-word angry manifesto and deadly rampage touched off a region wide manhunt.

    Whenever you call Moose Obama a wookiee, you’re pissing Dorner off wherever the hell he is.

    By the time they’re done with this, it’ll be down to a bus pass and a slice of Tres Leches cake.

    How much do those two gals who got all shot up for nothing get? They’re damn fools if they really expected LAfukinPD to pay up or keep their word.

    “apparent suicide” ya got that? The incendiaries were just sent in to brighten the place up and cheer him up so’s he wouldn’t off himself.

    What they should have done was claim they are illegal aliens, say the LAPD/ Riverside PD hurt them and then sue them for the reward money.

    They torched that bastard for several reasons, I can name three off the top of my head:

    *He knew too much and was likely to spill the beans.

    *They wouldn’t have to pay the reward money if they smoked him.

    *They might not have another opportunity to fry somebody for a long time and it helps to relieve stress. They were pissed, too.

    I have nothing against cops, I have several relatives who are law enforcement, including two or three with the LAPD. I’m glad they fried that son of a bitch. But it’s a pity that they are too corrupt to ever admit that was their intention from the beginning.

    Give the money to the cops who shot up the innocents.
    The lawyers could then share it with the victims.
