The couple who walked into the Big Bear Lake condo where Dorner had been hiding out had more to do with the information leading to Dorner's capture than the ranger at the scout camp. US Dept of Wildlife officers were already on him having heard the sheriff's department broadcast of the stolen Nissan and seeing it as they drove down HWY 38. They engaged in extremely close quarter gun fire from Dorner minutes after Dorner ditched the Nissan and carjacked the truck belonging to the camp ranger and drove back down the road right at the Wildlife officers. All he did after that was point to where Dorner went. Deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department were not far behind and that's when all H-E-L-L broke out.
Does he (Mr Ranger) deserve some? Yeah, maybe, I guess. Does he deserve all of the $1,000,000 reward? I don't think so..... not if it were up to me to decide.
i think riverside has refused to pay any of their rewards.
My only question for paying out anything to anybody would be, who told the local LEO's where he was located when he was found. In other words, he is in there right now AND he was found right there. He took my ride and went that way-I think. While helpful, that information only give a direction to go not a place to find. Question, how much would be the lawyer's cut that "filed on behalf of" this guy a law suit? Is he pro bono because the guy needs help? Or does he take 30 percent off the top and before taxes?
Regardless whether this guy deserves it or not, he deserves due process of his claim under current state law...
I have to say I have some real heartburn over the Ranger's claim and his insistence that he deserves all the money. He got carjacked and called police. He didn't call police BECAUSE Dorner took his car, he called because SOMEONE took it. The fact that it happened to be Dorner doesn't by itself raise it above say the trash collector who noticed police equipment in a dumpster in San Diego, and called police. That act lead to a phone call to someone on Dorner's list, which turned into a hunch, which lead to a phone call to Irvine PD...enabling them to connect him to the Irvine murders. If not for the trash collector, how long would the spree have gone on before police knew WHO to look for?
You cannot discount any tips that came in before the reward was announced, because then people will just hold back tips UNTIL a reward is announced in future cases.
