The Southern California manhunt for former LAPD Officer and murder suspect Christopher Dorner is taking its share of twists and turns Friday morning.

So far it’s Dorner that has police agencies running at a feverish pace.

One observation. If Dorner is as intelligent as its being led to believe, there’s a good chance he isn’t even in or near Big Bear Lake or the Mountains for that matter.

Unless he drove to the mountains Thursday morning just to burn his pickup truck and hang out for a while.

It’s highly plausible the Dorner move was a distraction, and he’s stalking his targets in the Los Angeles area. Dorner is clearly capable and of the mindset to carjack another vehicle and travel back to the Valley after torching his vehicle.

It’s clear this is an angry man with scores to settle.

San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner John McMahon, at a press conference yesterday, said it best. “He could be anywhere.”
