On any number of levels this is a difficult story to write about.
So I will not add any hyperbole to the story, simply show the video and invite comment, because the discussion on the actions and reactions of the LAPD matters.
We saw two incidents of the "wrong truck" already, and this is pretty disturbing too.
If anyone can "flesh out" this story at all, I would appreciate it and I'll add to the Diary.
There is more:
From the Guardian: Hat tip to MKinTN, in the comments
The audio track of this video purports to be the conversation on police scanners as they surrounded the cabin where Dorner was hiding. The Guardian cannot confirm that the audio track is a genuine recording of the police scanner.
At around the 1min mark, a male voice says:
All right, Steve, we're gonna go, er, we're gonna go forward with the plan, with, er, with the burn. We want it, er, like we talked about.
He then adds shortly afterwards:
Seven burners deployed and we have a fire.
A female voice responds:
Copy. Seven burners deployed and we have a fire.
At around 2min 20sec, a male voice says:
Guys, be ready on the No 4 side. We have fire in the front. He might come out the back.
At around 2min 50sec, a male voice requests a fire engine.
There is then a report of a shot fired from within the residence, followed by a sharp noise of some kind.
