Christopher Dorner Is Officially A Drone Target: First On American Soil

Drones target Christopher Dorner

The controversial drone program has a new target: Accused killer Christopher Dorner.

Dorner, a former LAPD officer accused of killing three people, is the first official human target for airborne drones on United States soil. The use of drones in the hunt for Christopher Dorner was confirmed by Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who said that the government fears Dorner will make a break for Mexico, according to MSN.

“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,” said a senior police source, according to Express.co.uk.

When asked whether drones have already been deployed, Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz cryptically stated: “We are using all the tools at our disposal.”

Dorner was fired from the LAPD in 2008. He has vowed revenge by “killing officers and their families.”

He wrote a nine-page manifesto on his Facebook page, threatening “warfare” to the LAPD and promising to “utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordinance and survival training I’ve been given” in the fight.

Dorner has also warned that he possesses shoulder-launched missiles, which he will use to “knock out” helicopters that pursue him.

“Now he is, quite literally, at war,” said Brian Levin, a psychologist and professor of criminal justice at Cal State University, San Bernardino,

Dorner currently has a $1 million bounty on his head. His whereabouts are unknown. He is believed to be hiding in the wilderness of California’s snow-capped San Bernardino mountains, roughly 80 miles east of Los Angeles.

    The slippery slope has already begun that we have resorted to using DRONES on US soil ALREADY? We don't have enough law enforcement ability and resources active NOW that we have to utilize DRONES first and foremost?

    Agreed, ……. the only reason people are flying off the handle is because of the rampant corruption in Congress and the White House and politicians totally ignoring any problems but their own.
