Hoping to end the standoff, law enforcement authorities first lobbed “traditional” tear gas into the cabin.
When that did not work, they opted to use CS gas canisters, which are known in law enforcement parlance as incendiary tear gas.
These canisters have significantly more chance of starting a fire.
This gas can cause humans to have burning eyes and start to feel as if they are being starved for oxygen.
It is often used to drive barricaded individuals out.
CNN – “a suspect tried to get out of the back door of the cabin, but he was pushed back inside.”
LAPD Chief Beck called Dorner a “trained assassin”, just a couple of couple of days after he told us “we trained him”
The Los Angeles Police Department says Dorner, a 270-pound, 6-foot former Navy officer, was fired in 2009 for filing a false complaint of excessive force against his training officer. In an interview aired Sunday on CNN affiliate KCBS, Beck called Dorner a “trained assassin” but said he wouldn’t be harmed if he gave himself up.
