Yep, grew up in a little city

Yep, grew up in a little city at the base of the foothills leading up to Big Bear. There is a very limited amount of access roads in and out. If Dorner hasn't been caught he should be very soon!

Yes he will be caught, he has

Yes he will be caught, he has no where to run. Very steep mountain behind him, and surrounded by LAPD, SWAT, FEDS, FISH AND GAME... hopefully he doesn't ake anyone else out before he goes down.

Yup. And family up there

Yup. And family up there searching for him.
And more family vacationing up there tomorrow.

The cops will make sure he's dead. There's no "capturing" in this case.

Did y'all see the truck the LAPD shot the hell out of "thinking" it "might" be him a few days back?
Yeah, looking for a grey Nissan Titan. Shot the hell out of an electric blue Toyota Tacoma. Niiiiice.

And I have family in the LAPD, so this just sucks.

We are in LA County, so we have a TON of LAPD and LASD friends. Many of which work in the station he was in. It insane. One of the two outlets to the mountain he is sittig on dumps right in to our town. I will say that BM's house is WAY closer to that out let then we are so, there's a plus. Eye-wink Just kidding.
