[Updated at 5:15 p.m. ET] Former FBI Assistant Director Tom Fuentes explains to CNN what law enforcement personnel usually mean when they say someone is “pinned down”:

“The term commonly means he’s not running any more, that they’ve got him trapped in a home or some other physical location … . That means he’s contained; that doesn’t mean he’s in custody … but it means he’s not running loose.”

  1. For all you folk who “understand his frustration”, I’ll be in constant prayer that you’ll never have to experience what’s Dorner’s victims and their loved ones are feeling. However, if justice is served, you will get yours too.

    • Truthbeliever, I do not need you to pray for me because I understand someone’s frustration and by me understanding his frustration is not a sin, nor is it wrong. I know how to pray for myself as well as others. As a matter of fact I sent up prayers for all involved. I would never do what Dorner did but that does not mean I have not been angered, hurt, or affected by racism. My Faith and Belief in God keeps me grounded. If I want to be understanding and compassionate toward someone who you feel does not deserve it then you need to take your disagreement up with God. My steps are ordered by God and God alone. I am not one of those people who think I’m all that when it comes to spirituality, nor do I look down on others who do not walk as I walk. We all fall down but we get up….With God’s Help because without Him we can do nothing. We all will get what we deserve and if I’m not mistaken, that includes you.

  2. I’m having an “OJ during the trail moment”…..

  3. Let the bodies his the floor…Chris I wish you could kill several more…..

  4. To bad this could be any of us, who stand up for our rights.

  5. Everyday I pray that I won’t have to work for the mainstream anymore. They make it impossible for us to thrive!!! I am sick of them!!!

  6. Everyday I pray that I don’t have to work for the mainstream anymore. They make it impossible for us to thrive!!! I am sick of them!!!

  7. Christopher Dorner is a victim of the crooked U.S. system just like many others, including those who were shot, humiliated and punished at Attica in the 1970s and at many other places of unspeakable human horror. The U.S. is an evil entity, a big stain on human history.

  8. I guess maybe gun control will get a smile now. This man is doing what was done to him “justice”. Anyone that live in California should read the signs on the wall, don’t think a title can save you from a racist fool. I should know I live in Alabama “top that”.

  9. God Bless Christopher Dorner. Rest assure, when this is done he will be dead. The LAPD will not let this man live to tell more of the truth. No way. They will kill him. People are fed the fuck up with the racism, the corruption, and the loss of innocent lives to overzealous racist cops who view the murder of black people as some sort of sick sport. As one poster stated above, Dorner was not only tired he REACTED to such injustice done to him. He will not be the last. God bless you Christopher. God bless you.

  10. “You reap what you sow.” These are prophetic words that should be heeded.

    Are you white racist “peace officers” now anxiously waiting for the next Black or Hispanic ex-cop or ex-military marksman to “snap” in your town?

    Hatred breeds hatred. What goes around comes around. Watch your back.

  11. Is he dead? Haven’t heard it here in the east – He never had a chance once he killed 2 police officers “Things” happen in lockup – what a waste of a seemingly talented and trained man. So sorry!

  12. One deputy has been killed and he is in san bernadino county in big bear mountains. It four miles from me now. The house is totally on fire. He’s dead. 4 33pm. RIP Chris…no more mental disturbance. God bless the families of his victims.

  13. Did anybody consider he knows he is going to die but is saYING I AM NOT GOING ALONE
