Triple murder suspect allegedly attempts to steal yacht

Christopher Dorner Escape Attempt in San Diego
By Matthew Mullins Thu., Feb. 7 2013 at 1:29 PM
The eerie findings suggested to some that this was a man with nothing left to lose. They unnerved area residents, coming as they did on the heels of Dorner's alleged attack on an elderly boater at Southwestern Yacht Club in San Diego. The boater told police ...

... he was tied up at gunpoint by a large black man matching Dorner's description and ordered to take him by boat to Mexico. But as the man's 42-foot cruiser was disembarking, a rope tangled in the propeller and the boat couldn't move. The suspect fled. The unidentified elderly man lived to tell the tale.

Re: Triple murder suspect allegedly attempts to steal yacht

Agreed. Otoh, since he was apparently assigned to the harbor patrol division when he worked for LAPD ( link ), I figured it would be prudent to post this thread, so sailors in that area can at least be on alert.

Re: Triple murder suspect allegedly attempts to steal yacht

Obviously, this ex cop knows what he is doing and is apparently not insane. I wonder if anyone in outside LAPD will look into the unjust that he was claiming.

Not all policemen are angels. Regardless, this is very sad.

It is clear that they don't want him to talk.

LAPD doesn't exactly have the greatest track record in the world.

Ain't that the truth. They'll never change.

Personally, I'd like to hear this guy's story before they get him... and, they will.
