First US Drone Target

Posted: February 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

Just sharing this for informational purposes. One thing that raises my eyebrow on this issue is where is this guy’s family and friends? I haven’t looked at a bunch of articles on this, maybe 8 or 10, but I haven’t yet seen any comment or mention of an attempt to get a comment from his relatives or friends. It’s odd….at least it’s odd to me.

They believe burly, heavily-armed Christopher Dorner is holed-up in the wilderness of California’s snow-capped San Bernardino mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles.

The burnt-out shell of his pick-up truck was discovered in the nearby resort of Big Bear, where residents and tourists have been warned to stay indoors as the search continues.

Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil.

A senior police source said: “The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.” (full article here)
