On Sunday (Feb. 10), Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced a $1 million reward for information leading to Dorner’s capture.

Supervisors Michael D. Antonovich and Mark Ridley-Thomas also offered a $100,000 reward in exchange for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of Dorner.  The motion will be introduced on Tuesday, February 12, during the regular meeting of the Board of Supervisors.

As of Monday morning (Feb. 11) hundreds of tips were reportedly pouring in, but Dorner was still on the lam.

Donor is suspected of murdering a young couple in Irvine and killing a Riverside police officer.

BIG BEAR – At 2:30 p.m. Thursday (Feb. 7) Sheriff John McMahon confirmed the vehicle used in the murder of a Riverside police officer was found burned on a forest road in Big Bear.

The vehicle belonged to Christopher Jordan Dorner, a former LAPD officer, who is suspected of murdering a couple in Irvine, as well as shooting two Riverside Police officers, one of whom died as a result of his injuries. (Read the latest here.)

An extensive search for the suspect continues in the Big Bear Valley, but Dorner could be anywhere in California, and the department is asking the public to be vigilant about their surroundings.

There is no curfew in place, but uniformed law enforcement officers are going door-to-door in the Big Bear area in an effort to find Dorner.

The public should be aware of suspicious cars or people in the area and open the door only to those they know, or uniformed law enforcement officers. Additional personnel have been deployed to the Big Bear Valley and will remain in the area until Dorner is located, or it is determined he is out of the area. Dorner is considered armed and extremely dangerous.

If you have any information regarding, call 911 immediately.

    A MILLION DOLLAR REWARD AND POSSIBLY USING A DRONE? Come on now, even you die hards have to be wondering what the cops want to keep quiet.

    Who should play the leading roll?
    I heard today that the case is being looked at again…probably some sham of an internal investigation. You know the cops HATE to admit they made a mistake or worse….one of their own, lied!

    Unfortunately this isn’t gonna end well for anybody. Dormer is gonna wreak as much havoc as he can and when they do find him and corner him this will have a suicide by cop ending. I don’t see Dorner giving up without a fight.

    In light of what we have been told and have read, I’d say the guy is a self-absorbed narcissist who couldn’t make time for anybody else in his life. There is a definite reason why his family shunned him. He’s got major problems, and he brought them on himself, and whining about the results of his actions is a complete ‘cop’-out. If you have a beef with someone, take it up with them. You don’t kill their kids. Complete BS. I hope he’s already killed himself so we don’t have to spend another taxpayer dime on this loser.

      in war you go hard or go home. the best way to get to somebody is thru the people closest to them. his point is a bit valid although the results seem gruesome pepople are being victimized and done worse by his targets this is some real life movie ish. get real wake up.his action was telling on bad cops. what did you read.? not his letter. the public is safe. the private people he contacted and that he named seem like the point is for them to confess to beating and killing innocent people. more over pushing out morality from the ranks of those that protect and serve. ever get pulled over lynn? did the cop smile cause if he did you were lucky. those that get that look from the police when they have a bad day will tell you something for you to open up and realize

    These comments sadden me. Here you have people saying that this man is not evil and too bad for the dead. People automatically assume his greivances are founded and attempt to rationalize his behavior. Then in the next sentence they villify every other cop in the world. So this guy is the one honest cop in the world? Isnt it quite possible that there are a lot of noble cops out there? And to hear that cops want him dead because he knows secrets, do you really think Riverside officers care if the guy has dirt on the LAPD? Lastly some fool said why this huge response, they dont do that on any other murder. Actually they do if someone takes credit and says they wont stop. DC Snipers ring a bell? Son of Sam? There have been several times when there have been huge manhunts. This guy may have valid grievances, but dont use that as justification for murdering people! Also if you think this is all acceptable you are just as bad as the people this man calls out for racist behavior. You are making vast stereotypes about a class of people you dislike. It the same as saying: All Blacks are…,All Hispanics are… Gays are….

      do police go to jail when they kill people on accident. no! do you know what other humans think when they think and do. so are these deaths truly accidents. if someone knew the truth and had his own agenda should he be given noble recognition ,no! all cops arenot bad he named the bad ones did the sheriff after oir report nope! they still get to do what they want good or bad. look at the races of the cops that steal and get caught. how about th cops on trial for murder and racial evidence being preseent the point is……like a movie script so to speak.

        Cops do have their own adgendas and shooting the women in the truck is a prime example. oh waaaa, they are on leave..probably still getting paid and they shot people who look nothing like Chris and are not even men! Wow, where is the justice?

          February 8, 2013 at 10:07 pm

          Your right….Cops usually do have there own agenda. It typically consists of arresting criminals. I highly doubt the cops who shot the two women decided they were going to go shoot two ladies because of the vehicle they drive. Im sure they feel horrible for the girls

          • February 9, 2013 at 11:43 am

            Don’t be naive.
            They opened fire on the truck without identifying the occupants even to the point that they are WOMEN.
            I would NOT be driving around in a Nissan Titan truck for all the $$$ in the world. Doesn’t matter the WOMEN in the truck didn’t remotely resemble him. The cops shot to kill.

        I am not going to get in a pissing match but her is an analogy to think about. Do doctors go to jail when their mistakes cause a patient to die? Very rarely. The problem with cops is that there is a certain finality when they make mistakes. Their mistakes many times end in death. Government understands this and that is why the laws are written to discern if the officers acted with malice or if they made a bad decision based on a faulty perception. Why do you think their is freindly fire incidents in the military? Because under pressure with limited info sometimes you make bad decisions. What still blows me away is that people will justify this guys actions…

          Was it a mistake when the cops hog tied the pregnant lady when she got out of her suv on the freeway. They said she was trying to evade them when obviously she couldn’t pull over because there was no shoulder. She never raised her arms in a threatening manner, palms open and faced up (empty). They threw her on the pavement and hog tied her even though she kept repeating that she was pregnant.
          Were they under pressure then?
          Oh wait, let’s talk about Kelly Thomas…..

      February 7, 2013 at 9:48 pm

      From the way they opened fire on the 2 trucks (mistaken for The suspect), I think they want to stop him from exposing anymore secrets…or maybe stop him from killing more people. My guess is they want to STOP THE KILLING OF INNOCENT PEOPLE.

    Chris Dorner is an officer willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for justice.

    His claims against LAPD officers are nothing new. He just happened to be on the inside and wanted it to stop.

    He certainly is not the first person driven over the edge by what he sees as injustice. Hollywood has been making movies about it for a long time. Movies about the LAPD have exposed a lot of corruption…of course only in the movies. Sorry, the stories came from somewhere.

    I think he will have plenty of help staying on the “down low”. He will become a hero to many people who would like to “get even” with people who messed with them, their wallets and their good names.

        he is not my hero, but, I do think that same group of people and their families who were cheering OJ Simpson on, will be rooting for him.

        @Letlow. “The beef he had with her dad”. Her dad sold him out and did not represent him as he should have. His union threw him under the bus and the “agent” who was supposed represent him did not do his job. Same as Public Defenders and DA’s exchanging deals. Arbitrators do the same thing. We all know it’s true but as long as it works in our favor, we look the other way.

            February 8, 2013 at 12:03 am

            He passed them because he was not crazy or a whiney, malcontent, loser.
            He became disillusioned only after everything he believed in and fought for, was brushed aside so the department’s dirty laundry wouldn’t be aired. Unfortunatly, there will be no happy ending to this terrible tragedy.
            The murders he has committed are unforgivable and surely he knows he will be shot on sight as evidenced by the civilians shot by cops for driving Titans similar to his.

      Did you even read what you wrote?Hollywood is a group of money hungry, drug addicted ego maniacs who stretch the truth beyond belief and sell it to your kids peppered with sex and violence.
      Don’t think a lot of people up in Big Bear are going to be helping him on the down low.

        February 7, 2013 at 8:19 pm

        I dobt if he is anywhere near Big Bear. Since there was not serial number on te truck they found and no plates and it was burned up…whose to say it isn’t another one like the ladies the COPS SHOT were driving. There are lots of that make and model out there.
        Your opinion of him means nothing to me. I don’t know him and don’t agree with what he has done.
        However, I do understand that a little boy who, all his life wanted to do the right thing and be a cop must have been soooo disappointed when he had superiors calling out the N word.

        Superiors using excess force when it wasn’t needed. We all know it happens. LAPD pays out enough in lawsuits, it should be obvious to anyone who is not doing it themselves or related to someone who is. It’s in the news all the time.

        As far as everyone in Hollywood being addicted to drugs, I doubt that everyone is. I do agree that there are to many movies with sex and violence at the box office and on primetime TV. That’s why you don’t have to let your kids watch them. I wouldn’t.

      Ok for one he is a coward, shooting and killing people that had absolutely nothing to do with happened or didn’t happen to him. Two he is weak because, when you have a problem with someone or the system, you don’t go killing their family members, you take it up with them, and he will have to answer for his crimes if not here right now the Lord will handle that. So you can call him a hero if you want but, as for me I will call a weak ass coward!!!!
