True enough. Maybe I'm just a little more sensitive to it now, since the Lakers and Cavs *MIGHT* be heading for a showdown in June.


Yeah, I doubt you'll see Sportscenter SLAM on it's brakes every time the dodgers & giants play each other (like they do when the yanks & sawks play). I've been down there though, it's a kick ass TV & Radio setup.

Well here we go again, LA at it's finest. I'm sure most of you are just now starting to hear about this story, but here's the long and short of it.

Guy works for the LAPD, gets accused of making false statements against his supervisors, gets fired.

Guy writes a two page manifesto on Facebook laying everything out about how he's going to kill everyone's family who was involved in that hearing.

Guy kills two people from my town, both of which have ties to a bunch of my friends.

Guy shoots at two cops that were following him last night...then early this morning, shoots at two more cops just sitting in their car, killing one and critically injuring another.

Manifesto: http://ktla.com/2013/02/07/read-christo ... z2KERDrpB1

Link to local news coverage: http://ktla.com/

Again, time for me to move.

Now apparently the cops are just firing at random black guys in pickups that match his description because of the tension. This is gonna be an awesome week until this dude is captured/killed.

I have followed some of the story you mentioned and that's all kind of f***ed up. Heart goes out to the innocent victims of this d*****bag and I hope the PD can take him down with the utmost prejudice.

Heartbreaking about the daughter and fiancee who were killed. This guy is a sick and twisted f***, but I read the full manifesto, and it is one of the strangest documents I've ever read. It's extremely lucid but then punctuated with these horrible threats, and then ends with a half dozen pages of thanks to friends, politicians, media members, and celebrities.

Anyway, hope they catch/kill him soon.

Yeah it's absolutely insane how crazy this story is. Was going to head up to Big Bear this weekend as my parents have a cabin there, but looks like that plan is scrapped now.

I have yet to see the version of the manifesto with all of the celebrities and "thanks". This is the only one I've seen:

http://ktla.com/2013/02/07/read-christo ... z2KERDrpB1

And I have the un-edited one with all of the names in it. Apparently KTLA took it down and reposted it without the names after I had already opened it. Woops.

I know, right? If the attacks hadn't already happened, I would have though that was the most verbose troll in history.

Yeah, the dude got fired in 08/09 and it clearly took him 4-5 years to write that beast.

Still haven't caught the psycho...awesome. Makes me really confident in our cops/fbi/us marshals that's for sure.

Don't be so sure of that. He's only confirmed to be dead. They really don't know. How the hell is this guy burned so bad it will take days/weeks to confirm his identity, yet his ID survived the fire? Doh-kay...

It won't take weeks. The body is charred, but it's not like they are only left with teeth. I bet they confirm it soon. There's no way that dude got out of there. Why he ever thought Big Bear was a good idea is beyond me (oh yeah, I forgot: he's nuts). Enjoy Hell dumb*ss!

The p*ssy killed himself. Mark it down.

As for weeks...come on. He was in the military...plenty of dental records they can check in a day.

The cell camera clips from CBS were amazing...it was literally a warzone. So much firepower and Dorner had a silencer on his weapon (which is why the first two cops were ambushed essentially) so no one really knew where he was until he tried to use smoke grenades to escape. Insane coverage from right over head by helicopter until the LAPD told the news helos to get the F out.

It was a fascinating day to be home with my sick baby, that's for damn sure.

And speaking of nuts...my dad thought it was a good idea to go to Big Bear to our cabin last weekend, convinced Dorner had fled back down the mountain or had someone drive his truck up there and torch it. In retrospect, he regretted that decision. LOL.

Did anyone outside of California give a sh*t about this story? No one I know here in upstate New York was talking about it, and none of my work colleagues in Indiana were, either.

Either gun battles are becoming so commonplace or this guy was on the loose so long that a lot of people I know just glazed over.

Glad the dude is deep-sixed, though. SoCal can exhale.

Even people IN So. Cal didn't seem to even care. I was only in the middle of it because I have friends that went to school w/ the first two people he murdered, so it hit a little more close to home. Like I said, my dad said F it, I'm going to Big Bear anyway, I don't care that the two hour trip took 6 hours because of snow fall and well, you know, a murder on the loose there.

Well...he's officially dead now, according to dental records and autopsies. So now everyone can go on living their lives in LA until the next weird thing happens and this thread gets resurrected again. :)

I know this is really the "f***ed up s*** that happens in Los Angeles thread" but it is also the most recent active LA thread so I figured I'd try to hijack it for my own purposes.

I'm making my first trip to LA next month and thought I would ask you fine folks what tips, tricks, must sees, must eats, must dos and don'ts you might be willing to share. I do plan to dip my toes in the Pacific for the first time but that's the whole extent of my thoughts at the moment. My schedule is pretty open so if anyone wants to grab a beer I'd be up for that too.

It's partially a vacation trip and partially a scouting mission. My wife's career could find us there in the not so distant future so any tips on cool neighborhoods, outlying towns to visit, etc. are also appreciated.

Thanks in advance gentlemen!
