(Newser) – The mayor of Los Angeles today offered $1 million to anyone providing information leading to the arrest of ex-cop Christopher Dorner, the LA Times reports. "We will not tolerate anyone undermining the security of the community," said Antonio Villaraigosa at downtown LAPD headquarters. "We will not tolerate this reign of terror." Police Chief Charlie Beck called it the "largest local reward ever offered." Dorner, a fugitive since Thursday, is suspected of murdering three people and injuring two others.

Yesterday, Beck promised a new truck for the women shot by LAPD officers who mistook their vehicle for Dorner's, KTLA reports. Emma Hernandez, 71, and her daughter, Margie Carranza, 47, were wounded when officers fired on their blue Toyota Tacoma; a neighbor says police got off about 60 rounds. Now the mother and daughter have retained an attorney: "Police have a job to do,” he said. “But that job does not include street justice. It does not include execution."

(R) 2014 & 2016 Gov. RICK PERRY Report: The South is waiting for this BIG gorilla to hit Texas soon. Either a gorilla has to eat a hamburger ? Christopher Dorner is a kind of guy who could not afford to lose and doesn't want to be a loser, he loves his good face very much !! he will continue to kill all his targets in his mind on list for sure. Watch out he hijacks a car and leave California. Dorner is (D) Gov. Jerry Brown's man and Obama's soul brother.

"We will not tolerate anyone undermining the security of the community," said Antonio Villaraigosa Antonio, your lousy police force is the cause of the whole security problem in the first place. Have to whip those slaves into order! Right? I saw the real tape of Rodney King not the edited one. You know where the Highway Patrol lady walked up to cuff King and was ordered back, you know the one where King gets out of his car and tries to put his hands on the top of the car. A community should have a good relationship between all the people not this JUST-US crap mentality the city of L.A. promotes. The image that LAPD promotes? A bunch of twisted-sicko-petty-jack-booted-nazis about do it? I'd love to see you all brought up on RICO violations, but alas the whole system is crooked all the way to the top, you know it, and the people know it. Your 'gang' makes the old Chicago mafia look like children in comparison. Good luck with trying to keep your city's liability insurance costs down in the future! LOL. Perhaps officers should be of the age 50 & over? They've more brains than testosterone. L.A. could save a lot of money if they had a Constitutional Common Law Sheriff with the Posse Comitatus at his disposal.
