    Yeah, keep trusting government. They're totally trustworthy. I'm sure they'll make good on all their promises.


    The city of Riverside is pulling its pledge of $100,000 toward the $1 million reward offered during the manhunt for rogue ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner.
    Dorner died in an apparent suicide during a standoff with authorities and cabin burning near Big Bear last month.
    Because the Riverside City Council resolution stipulated the money was for information leading to Dorner’s arrest and conviction, the city will withdraw its pledge because neither condition was met, Riverside city spokeswoman Cindie Perry told NBCLA.

    This is a big story in S.CA
    My thoughts ( if any one cares) How many lives were saved because the car-jacked guy and the hostage family led the police right to him?
    They deserve the money.

    This, plus the fact that the asshole is dead saves the taxpayers from having to pay for his sorry ass for years.

    Tens of millions, for two decades of death penalty appeals, only to die of old age.

    They didn't want him alive anyway. All they cared about was ending the manhunt ASAP so they didn't have to spend millions every day it went on protecting all the people Dorner mentioned in his manifesto and hunting him. And they certainly didn't want their dirty secrets about his firing exposed in courts to the world.

    To pull the rewards is really fucked.

    Can't imagine that these people haven't already been contacted by some hungry Tribesman willing to litigate

    The difference is that lawyers don't directly make money off of giving people their just reward. But lawyers do make millions in fees off of a death penalty case. They jack off thinking about cases like that. You get on either side of a death penalty case and you're looking at money and fame and even power and a political career. You know who told the police not to pay up? Their attorney on retainer. Why? Because either way he wins.

    If no one sues then he looks like he did the right thing. And he gets paid his fee. If they sue the police then he gets to defend the police...for a fee of course. And then the other side who wants the reward gets some lawyers. Now you've got a bunch of lawyers collecting five figures in fees over a $100,000 case. It's perfect for the lawyers.

    To quote the once great legendary shock jock Howard Stern:

    "Lawyers are the only profession where they multiply. Someone hires a lawyer to sue you? You need to hire a lawyer to defend yourself. Want to hire a lawyer to sue someone? They'll hire a lawyer or a team of lawyers to counter-sue. Lawyers are the only profession that self-multiply. They come in pairs".
