Because at least some LAPD are scared and jumpy. The guy knows what he's doing and he's after police and people who've wronged him.
Actually there were at least two incidents:
... firing more than a dozen bullets, only to find they had hit two women who were delivering newspapers. They were taken to hospital with minor injuries. A few minutes later officers in another part of Torrance opened fire on another pick-up driven mistaken for Dorner's. No one was injured...
..."He knows what he's doing. We trained him"...
Chris Dorner against the LAPD: 'He knows what he's doing. We trained him' | World news | guardian.co.uk
Based on what I understand, Dorner is a new kind of crazy... a "self portrayed?" victim hero and now it appears he has fans.
Police brutality, racism and corruption exist. Dorner could be a negative consequence.
Meanwhile, Dorner's truck was found burnt to a crisp. (best way to obscure all evidence) He took the police to the current location and they are scared to death of booby traps... Elsewhere throughout the LA area, Dorner sightings are everywhere and nowhere at the same time, spreading confusion (fear and panic?) and police resources..
This sounds familiar...
Teasle: It doesn't make one goddamn bit of difference, Dave, and you know it! If one of my deputies... gets out of line with a prisoner then the prisoner comes to me with it. And if I find out it's like he says I kick the deputy's ***! *Me*! The *Law*! People start ****ing around with the law then all hell breaks loose! Whatever possessed God in heaven to make a man like Rambo?
Trautman: God didn't make Rambo, I made him!
Trautman: I don't think you understand. I didn't come to rescue Rambo from you. I came here to rescue you from him.
Teasle: Well, we all appreciate your concern Colonel, I will try to be extra careful!
Trautman: I'm just amazed he allowed any of your posse to live.
Teasle: Is that right?
Trautman: Strictly speaking, he slipped up. You're lucky to be breathing.
Teasle: That's just great. Colonel, you came out here to find out why one of your machines blew a gasket!
Trautman: You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Vietnam his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Rambo was the best.
Teasle: Are you telling me that 200 of our men against your boy is a no-win situation for us?
Trautman: You send that many, don't forget one thing.
Trautman: A good supply of body bags.
My point is Dorner is a trained killer with nothing to loose. He knows what he's doing, planned this out and now he's executing his plan.
For the record: I hope the police catch this crazy SOB alive before he hurts anyone else.
I predict this will go go on and on... but in the end Dorner will not be caught alive.
