Chris Dorner has become the first human target for airborne drones on US soil

Yesterday, it was revealed that suspected murderer Chris Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil, as a police source said: “The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.”

Dorner, who was fired from the LAPD in 2008 and accused of lying about a fellow officer he accused of violent misconduct, has vowed to seek revenge by “killing officers and their families” who he feels have wronged his police career. 

Dorner’s violent vendetta began last Sunday when he shot dead Monica Quan, 27, the daughter of a former LAPD captain, and her fiancé Keith Lawrence while they they sat innocently in their car outside their home in Irvine, California.

A few days later, Dorner stole a boat at gunpoint and tied up an 81-year-old man in San Diego, near the Mexican border. He abandoned the boat when he discovered he had inadvertently fowled the prop and could not get the engine to start.

The following day, last Thursday, he was involved in a shoot-out with police in Cornona, 110 miles north of San Diego. The officers, one of whom was wounded, had been guarding one of the many targets Dorner had called out in his "facebook manifesto"  

Later that day, in nearby Riverside, he killed one police officer, whose name has not yet been revealed for security reasons, and wounded a second after opening fire on their car after pulling up next to them at a traffic light.

All of this seems to prove Chris Dorner is a desperate and violent man. However, Just because a suspected murdered is potentially armed and extremely dangerous shouldn't mean law enforcement gets a carte blanch to kill on sight during apprehension of a suspect, whom within our countries boarders is to be considered innocent until proven guilty and is entitled the right to a fair trial.

As the manhunt for him broadened across police jurisdictions, CA police officers mistakenly shot and wounded a hispanic 78 year old mother and her daughter while delivering newspapers in a pick-up truck "similar" to Dorner’s. Although it was both the wrong make and wrong color.
That incident, in the LA suburb of Torrance, was then shockingly followed up two hours later by another in the same area, when police again opened fire again on another wrong pick-up truck. Again this was a shoot first situation, before confirming either the identity or threat level of the driver. This time, there were no injuries. 
It is time that we start to wonder just what the LAPD is trying to keep from getting public. The shooting of the two women delivering news pappers in the wrong colored truck is a very clear signal of desperation. Could it be that the LA police wan't to silence Chris Dornerbefore he spills the beans?
