Will somebody please explain this thread to me, including what TLPTPW stands for?

Yep, or just people posting something.

At least 40 Swat officers are heading for Dorners location, they want Him bad...

The Sun says over 200 Officers are surrounding Dorners location, He'd better surrender.

@ N9JFE: TLPTPW stands for The Last Person To Post Wins...

The last person to post (i.e. me) is the temporary winner.

There is also a semipermanent winner decided as follows. The person starting the thread (in this case Jim_S) decides on a secret number. The person making that numbered post (within the thread) is the winner of the thread and has the responsibility to start the next one, monitor its post count and declare the subsequent winner, who then takes the baton.

Another Sheriffs Deputy has now died from gunshots according to KTLA 5 TV News, so Dorner has claimed a 4th victim. No word on the 2nd Deputy yet as that Deputies condition. Nothing like digging a hole. This guy should just give up.

Update: 50 Swat Officers in armor, plus an armored Bobcat with a battering ram have been brought up or are on the way to the cabin in Big Bear, I'm hoping for Dorner to be captured alive.

Update2: From what KTLA can see, the cabin where Dorner might be at(their words) is on fire, no idea who set the fire.

This guy should just give up.

Given his (reported) manifesto, and presuming some residual rationality, he will be working out how to take the max number of officers with him when he goes.

Well the cabin is on fire, so He may have set the fire and may not have wanted to be captured alive, the fire department will be going in to put the fire out to make sure that He is there or not. The News thinks the game is up(over).

@ Blurf: Yeah, no one wins, but at least this will be over, a sad ending no matter what. Oh and their's word that a 3rd Deputy was wounded.

Update: The 2 story cabin has burned to the ground, it was an empty rental cabin, the News doesn't know how the fire started, if Dorner is in there, the coroner will be coming eventually for the remains. :(

The roads have been reopened, police entered and after getting to the last wall they heard a single gunshot before the cabin went up in flames and I have some pics:

So this is over, Dorner appears to have taken His own life.

The deputies/police/LAPD were inside and had battered down all but 1 wall when they heard a gunshot, then the cabin caught fire, plus the news has not mentioned any horses here and the cabin was surrounded by 200 officers.

Drudge Report (only good for news) reported the horse possibility earlier but it's not there now.

Yeah, just like faux news is... No offense Blurf.

I can see on TV the area around the cabin, no horses or any corral, amazing, some snow though.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drudge_Report the wiki says the Drudge Report is a conservative bullhorn, but I'll let a quote say it all.

Matt Drudge has said that he is a conservative, but "more of a populist".[34][35] Some regard it as conservative in tone,[36][37][38][39][40][41][42] and has been referred to in the media as "a conservative news aggregator". More recently Richard Siklos, an editor of Fortune magazine, called the Drudge Report a "conservative bullhorn",[43] the Los Angeles Times labelled Drudge a "well-known conservative warrior",[44] the New York Times referred to him as a "conservative muckraker",[45] and Glenn Greenwald called him a "right-wing hack".[46] Greenwald also wrote that the Drudge Report (inter alia) is part of the "Bush/Cheney right-wing noise machine",


And You wonder why the Horse part was withdrawn? Cause it wasn't true at all.

Please don't make this thread political. Anyways--I'll believe the horse part is not true when I see confirmed reports of his death in the cabin.

Just read his manifesto--scary is all I'll say.

Win as I got a sale.
