Do you guys think that the LAPD added the extra crap on his manifesto to see if he would surface and make the correction, hence giving them a better chance of murdering him?

This mans death will be done by a drone and it will be televised or at least played over and over on the propaganda news outlets. This will be the justification of Drone use in America.

"270-pound, 6-foot Dorner..." could not possibly hide in the backseat of a car sufficiently so that two people could both finish getting in the car and closing the doors before they realized he was there.
He could have done it if he started shooting as soon as they opened the doors -- and why not, since that would be much bloodier and more public, which the LAPD tells us is what he wants.
He could have done it when they were outside the car, or hidden and shot them through the glass when they were in the car.
He could have waited in his truck outside the parking complex and hit them from there like he's supposedly done with the cops.
But none of that happened, because they were found inside the car only when someone noticed the driver's head slumped the next day. Which means no broken glass -- no open doors -- no blood. They were shot from the backseat.
He could not have hidden in the backseat, and there is no reason they would let him into their car. Unless I see it on tape, or find out some reason they would have let him into their backseat, I do not believe it is physically possible that Chris Dorner killed Quan and Lawrence.edit on 9-2-2013 by sepermeru because: edit button is my best friend

What if the daughter was killed to punish her father by someone (or some group) in LAPD? Her boyfriend is killed so there is no witness. Then Dorner's facebook page is hacked and the manifesto is posted to frame him. Dorner is killed after he checks into the hotel and his body is in a freezer somewhere waiting for the right time to be dumped. Or Dorner finds out that he is the suspect and runs.edit on 9-2-2013 by Magister because: Changed "a suspect" to "the suspect"

I've given my opinion in the other thread that Dorner's military service was 90% desk driving and powerpointing - nowhere near the badass navy commando he is trying to portray himself as. Until we hear something from someone who served under him or trained with him in the navy, all the talk about SERE and dems and unconventional warfare is pure speculation.
Here's a bit of a snippet about his police service by someone who served with him on the LAPD. I'm not prepared to link the source, so take my word for it or not.
So if accurate, that snippet gives us an idea of the man.
1. Shot himself? Jee-zus. However his Manifesto I believe talks about being in trouble for a "negligent discharge" while an LAPD cop. But to shoot himself? Take that as rumor material until proven, but - just wow.
2. Struggled with PT requirements - for police service? Yep, he was a donut-munching desk driver in the Navy - I can guarantee it. He's solid and muscular but has a fair amount of visible body fat in his photo. Any sort of prolonged cardio would be a problem for him. Lifting heavy things? Not so much.
3. He apparently wasn't very highly regarded by his colleagues - but that's also one former colleague's opinion and not really relevant to the case.
4. He lost his appeal to the LAPD over his dismissal and the loss of the appeal meant the loss of his military Top Secret clearance, making him redundant there too. You can clearly see from that alone why he'd be angry. Two careers and a future hinged on that LAPD appeal. Bummer for him. Not condoning ANYTHING he's done, but it's clear his life was ripped apart - very recently - and he's snapped. It will kill him and if he's in the right as per his manifesto then it's quite sad. However, what's sadder is that his LAPD and Navy psych evals didn't identify this side of his personality and nip it all in the bud.
No massive earth-shattering insights in this post, just a bit of extra texture to add to our individual opinions of the man, his grievances and his crimes.
Oh, almost forgot... he owns a whole bunch of NFA toys (from Nevada). SBRs, suppressors and there's chatter about demolitions materiel and equipment. This could get far more ugly than it is now.

Just wanted to share a small anomaly in a news broadcast that I found to be strange. Check out this video on this local news site:
Scrub to about 2:30 in the story and the graphic in the lower 3rd shows Dorners face with "wanted" below his face. In the video that follows, his mug appears on the left side of the screen, except the word "captured" is now showing in orange. Playing devil's advocate, I'll attribute this to a media intern that screwed up the graphic, but I thought its worth bringing this into the discussion...
