    So Dorner’s got a new truck? Clever.

  2. avatar NS says:

    hey look! it’s a small asian woman! it must be Dorner in disguise! BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM

    1. avatar Paul W. says:

      I still don’t get how the hell a small Asian lady got mistaken for a 300 lb jacked black dude.

  3. avatar Matt in FL says:

    I saw that on a bumper sticker earlier today (on the ‘net). Pretty clever, in a really scary way.

  4. avatar Sammy says:

    So not funny I damn near pi$$ed my pants.

    Joe: Hey Barry, what do you think? Do you think it’s Dorner or some other thug?
    Barry: Does it matter?
    Joe: No Barry it really doesn’t. What do you say we open fire since we got nothing to lose and maybe a promotion if it’s Dorner.
    Barry: Let’s go for it Joe. All together now. Fire!
    Joe: Hey wow Barry that cab window totally blew in and then out the front.
    Barry: Uh Joe, it’s not Dorner in the cab. I can’t really tell who or what was in there before. Forensics will figure it out. Whatever, Joe you are a great shot.
    Joe: Gee thanks Barry. How about we go out for some donuts and coffee?
    Barry: Sounds good Joe.

      I see what you did there. subtle.

      1. avatar Aharon says:

        Thanks!

        1. avatar OODAloop says:

          It was probably the Browning shotgun that provided the money shot…

        2. avatar Kelly in GA says:

          @OODA

          Don’t you mean the Stoeger Coach Gun?

        3. avatar OODAloop says:

          @Kelly I was talking about that nifty pic of Barry’s last week when he was skeet shooting with his Browning…

        Jeez, I’m slooooow. First read, I was like “What? I don’t get it.” Then I was like “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA”

        FML.

          The helmet might be to blame. It’s an assault helmet, anyway.

  6. avatar Lance says:

    Shows you if want common sense laws ban the LAPD and NYPD!!!!!

    Before you read this Zoomies; I love you. You are my brothers in arms.

    In 1994, during Operation Provide Comfort an flight of two USAF F15s shot down two USA(rmy) UH60s and killed 26 people. There were numerous problems on many levels in both components which led to this tragedy but you can’t let stuff like tragedy get in the way of a little inter-service teasing. Every time I saw a F15 taxi by my UH60 one of my crewmembers would hold up two larger poster boards boldly emblazoned with : “US Army UH60” on one and “NOT a Mi24 Hind” on the other. Most of the Eagle pilots would flip us off. That lasted for about a year.

    I don’t care who you are…that there was funny…

  9. avatar Chris says:

    I live in Iowa and I am temtpted to put one on my grey Hyundai.

    1. avatar Damon says:

      hell, i live in Iowa and drive a red Mustang and i’m considering a sign like this as well. ha!

  10. avatar Henry Bowman says:

    WINNING!!

  11. avatar C says:

    Give this man a medal.

  12. avatar brian says:

    That’s precisely the kind of thing Dorner would do. Open Fire!

  13. avatar Totenglocke says:

    I think this comic is very relevant.

    On a serious note, with that million dollar reward, they are getting zillions of tips. I’d hate to be a middle aged 200 + something black man anywhere near there.

    1. avatar In Memphis says:

      “I’d hate to be a middle aged 200 + something black man anywhere near there.”

      I’d hate to not even be close to that description anywhere near there. Shoot first, identify target later

      1. avatar Gregolas says:

        I’ve always had this slight fear that I’ll go out of my town and suddenly some old lady calls the cops b/c she swears she saw me on “America’s Most Wanted”.

    2. avatar jim says:

      In the last half of the late 80s (when the reason to ban assult weapons was because they were used by black people on crack) one of the Houston TV stations was doing Crime Stoppers re-enactments for the evening news. They found some aspiring young University of Houston acting major who fit the role of medium-height, medium-weight 20-something black male and he was on the news a couple of times a week robbing liquor stores and snatching purses. Poor dude couldn’t walk his dog without someone “recognizing” him and calling the cops. I know acting is a tough gig, but that was duty to your calling above and beyond.

  15. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    That is awesome. I love that picture.

  16. avatar Nakedgun says:

    Saw the first truck-sign like that yesterday… Have you seen the t-shirt yet? A look-alike wrote, “I am not Chris Dorner Do not shoot please.” tragically funny.

  17. avatar In Memphis says:

    “Keep firing @&&holes!”

  18. avatar Aharon says:

    The people of LA had a good day today. No innocent person got shot by the police in the hunt for Dorner.

  19. avatar dom says:

    So where are the cop defenders that usually post here?

    1. avatar JPD says:

      They are on “adminstrative leave”

    2. Dom: I am not sure everyone thinks this is as funny as the people on TTAG seem to. If someone had promised to kill you and your family, you might get a little nervous too.

      The headline of the article suggests the solution to the police action would be to make sure everyone was carrying guns, but that actually doesn’t seem like a good idea to me.

      If the police start shooting at you due to mistaken identity, returning fire is not your best course of action.

      1. avatar Paul W. says:

        So WTF should we do?
        Honestly, the LAPD seems to have shot more people than Dorner…

        1. avatar benny says:

          I’m with this guy. If someone starts shooting at me before they even see me, what are myoptions? Oh wait, that’s right I REALLY ONLY HAVE TWO: do nothing and get shot, or shoot back.

      2. avatar tdiinva says:

        You know Dave, the two ladies who got shot by the LAPD probably agree with you on this not being funny..

      1. avatar My Name Is Bob says:

        Oh… My… Gawd….

  20. avatar Sixpack70 says:

    Don’t sneak in some early surfing as a white guy also.

  21. avatar PPs43 says:

    I copied this from the “Second City Cop” blog. It’ll be interesting to see if it pans out.

    LA Killer Headed East?
    From a source that has been correct in the past:
    SCC: Please warn officers, UNCONFIRMED info from a very good Fed source: the LA Cop, Dorner, is either in Chicago already, or headed here on a train.

    Up to you to post this, but I’d hate to see our people get hurt for what LAPD created. The news says they lost track of him, my source says that’s not true.

    Be extra careful. Put your egos aside. This guy is bad news and it will obviously end in more bloodshed. Hopefully not in Chicago.

    Stay Safe.
    Keep an eye out.

    Labels: info for the police

  22. avatar Aharon says:

    Dorner has frozen to death in the unexpected snowstorm
    Dorner has committed suicide somewhere
    Dorner is on his way to Chicago via the train
    Dorner is hiding in the state of Washington
    Dorner has crossed the border to hide in Mexico
    Dorner is working at Disney World dressed up as Mickey Mouse
    Dorner is working in Switzerland as a ski instructor
    Dorner is in Washington DC and will soon give a motivational speech on supporting gun control for the masses

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Dorner is teaching my SERE class later today. Because, well… clearly he knows what he’s doing.

      1. avatar Aharon says:

        Cool. Please take notes and write up a post. I’ve heard rumors that Dorner is going to speak at the State of the Union about the need to disarm all civilian gun owners.

        1. avatar Mark says:

          Now that’s funny!

  23. avatar LTC F says:

    The root cause for this insantity goes back to 9/11. When we got so wrapped up in terrorism that we decided that Consitutional Rights were flexible, and we could kind of suspend them in the name of security. Then the Feds started giving grants to police departments, all in the name of counterterrorism. Hey, LAPD, here are some M16A1s we don’t need anymore, and an old armored vehicle, you know in case you have to do a SWAT raid on a guy with a funny sounding name and a LAW in the garage.

    We’ve turned our police from a para-military organization to a military organization. Beat cops use military terms like ambush (and what those two ladies ran into was an ambush, not a stake out). I watched some civilian police conduct training in a MOUT (Military Operations on Urban Terrain) site at Fort Hood. They used our shoothouse. And they used the terms we do, Battle Drill Six, enter and clear.

    The LA Police aren’t acting like police, they’re acting like an Army. They’re appearantly using military rules of engagement. They are not attempting to apprehend a suspect. They are conduction a cordon and search operation to destroy enemy forces.

    The militarization of the civilian police scares me more than anything else as far as the rapid errosion of our Constitutional Rights. It’s far worse among police departments than Sheriff’s Depatments. Sherriff’s are elected and they can’t get away with what appointed police chiefs can, but they are not immune. I hated the Patriot Act under Bush, I fear it under Obama.

    1. avatar Ing says:

      “I hated the Patriot Act under Bush, I fear it under Obama.”

      Yep. This.

      The longer that abomination stays, the darker our future becomes.

    2. avatar tdiinva says:

      Except they seem to have looser ROEs than what governed US military in Iraq.

  24. avatar PPs43 says:

    If the latest reports are correct, Dorner never left California. Sounds like he’s in shootout with LEOs. Hopefully this will all be over soon and people can take the signs out of their back windows. Or not.
