Dorner's Mom: 'We Do Not Condone Christopher's Actions'

The suspect's Orange County mother speaks out out for the first time.

The mother of fired Los Angeles police Officer Christopher Dorner, who is believed to have died inside a Big Bear cabin that burned to the ground after a gun battle with law enforcement, expressed "deepest sympathies" Wednesday to the families of people her son is suspected of killing.

In a statement released to Fox11 on behalf of the family, Nancy Dorner said:

"It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we express our deepest sympathies and condolences to anyone that suffered losses or injuries resulting from Christopher's actions. We do not condone Christopher's actions. The family has no further comment and asks that our privacy be respected during this difficult time."

Nancy Dorner's home in La Palma was searched by police during the manhunt for her son, which came to a fiery conclusion Tuesday night in the San Bernardino County mountains. Until Wednesday, she had not made any comments regarding the search for her son and the killings attributed to him by police.

Christopher Dorner, 33, is suspected of killing two people in Irvine on Feb. 3, a Riverside police officer on Thursday and a San Bernardino County sheriff's detective during Tuesday's shootout in Big Bear.

The cabin in which Dorner reportedly holed up burned to the ground when tear gas canisters were fired inside after the gun battle. San Bernardino County sheriff's officials said charred human remains were found inside the cabin, but they have not been positively identified.

Mexican, Deadly force was the only option in this situation and most AMERICAN'S are proud of the way our countys police officers handled this deadly rampage and killings of innocent law abiding citizens. Please understand that deadly force means that force which a reasonable person would consider likely to cause death or serious bodily harm. Its use may be justified only under conditions of extreme necessity, when all lesser means have failed or cannot reasonably be employed. A police officer is authorized to use deadly force only when one or more of the following circumstances exists: Self-Defense. When deadly force reasonably appears to be necessary to protect a police officer who reasonably believes himself to be in imminent danger of death or serious bodily harm. Serious offenses against persons have occurred. When deadly force reasonably appears to be necessary to prevent further deaths or or serious bodily harm (e.g. shooting at POLICE OFFICERS). Also when deadly force reasonably appears to be necessary to apprehend or prevent the escape of a person reasonably believed to: Have committed a violent offense or is likely to commit a violent offense and bodily harm to the police officer or others is likely unless hes apprehended without delay. Being burned to death or shot to death the end result is still deadly force. If you dont like the due process or the laws of our land Mexico is just across the border so start walking.

Mexican You got it right, but they are the law. No consequences. They could of starved him out but like WACO they murdered him in a fire. Dead men tell no tales!!!!

Before you start spewing stupid comments please read a book or do some reasearch on the comments that you are making. Its sooo obvious that you have zero knowledge or understanding of the basics laws and the use of deadly force by police officers or citizens. Your comments clearly display your lack of objective resonableness and lack of compassion for familes, police officers and citizens that were killed by the filthy disgusting savage of a person. Its very clear in your comments that you are that small percentage of people that are supporting that savages actions. I feel very sad for you and the toughts that process in your mind.

"Deadly force was the only option in this situation and most AMERICAN'S are proud of the way our countys police officers handled this deadly rampage and killings of innocent law abiding citizens." No. I disagree. The way the police went about dealing with Dorner was based fully on vengeance and not 'rule of law', which does not surprise me in the least since many, if not most cops feel that they are above the law anyway. If a common average man tracked down someone who murdered one of his family members and murdered the murderer the police would charge him with 'murder 1'. But if the cops do it to Dorner it's perfectly fine. On the police radio transmissions (which are public) there were cops screaming "Burn the ******** place down". I heard it myself. And that's exactly what they did. Normal situations are not handled that way by the police. They wait the person out for many hours before bringing out the tear gas, which they know causes fires. The cops are supposed to enforce the law, not be above the law.

JUSTUS, He was shooting at the police from within the cabin. He was at a position of advantage and was attempting to kill the officers. They had no other options and were unable to be sure where inside the house he was shooting from. The use of deadly force is completely justified and will not even be heard in any judges courtroom. Dorner was not will to give up and would have presented a serous threat to our communties if he was not stopped. Whether the police shot him with a bullet or burned him in a house the deadly force rule still applies. The courts do not rule on how the police killed the suspect just was it justified and in this case it was 100% And yes you are the very small percentage of people who have a twisted thought process. Yes and the police have the right to freedom of speech even though you may not agree. The freedom of speech act does not end with police officers. I commend those fish and game officers and our police officers unlike sick people likle yourself.

The Police were right to use all force necessary to stop the shooting and killing. He could have surrendered at any time. He did not. I applaud them for their courage.
Jim February 14, 2013 at 06:39 PM
JustUs is at it again. Super leftie liberal. Soon she will be praising Dorner as a hero like all the talking heads on CNN. I'm sure the families of the cops who were deployed at the cabin would want their loved ones put in harms way so that we could preserve the sanctity of Mr. Dorner's existence. Knock Knock, please come out. Did you ever think he might have a gas mask? You're not too bright JustUs.

"He was shooting at the police from within the cabin. He was at a position of advantage and was attempting to kill the officers." A couple years ago there was an wife or ex-wife of a police chief who was shooting at cops from her home. The cops never even fired back. No flammable tear gas either. They waited her out. Funny how there are double standards in law enforcement, eh? "The use of deadly force is completely justified and will not even be heard in any judges courtroom." When a cop lies in traffic court and tells the judge that you did something that you did not do, and you protest, who is the judge going to believe? Are you that naive? "Whether the police shot him with a bullet or burned him in a house the deadly force rule still applies. The courts do not rule on how the police killed the suspect just was it justified and in this case it was 100% " The taxpayers don't pay cops like medical doctors to execute people out of vengeance. Only barbaric societies condone such a thing. We have RULE OF LAW for all to follow. And cops are supposed to be held to a HIGHER STANDARD (which is a joke, btw). So there is a DOUBLE STANDARD like I pointed out in my previous comment that you FAILED to respond to. "And yes you are the very small percentage of people who have a twisted thought process." And you are part of a growing population % of Americans who would have made excellent loyal Nazi citizens from 1939-45. Have you done your goose step this morning?

I also applaud them for surrounding the cabin with 40 deputies and having a bon fire because we are judge, jury and executioner. The law be damned!!!
Joker Joe February 14, 2013 at 06:54 PM
Your right Jim. The gas mask would of shielded him from the fire also....
lifer February 14, 2013 at 10:09 PM
Jim - you must be as dumb as a stump. Justus/Adromeda is as conservative as you. He just has one extra element - a love of liberty (kinda like our forefathers here in the USA). heh
Jim February 14, 2013 at 11:23 PM
It's comical to see these moralists critiquing the police's actions. Put them in charge and many, many more die. Put the mental midgets Bonney, lifer and JustUs on the scene, let them bring a proper resolution to it. I'd like to see that play out. They are full of it......$^it.

"Super leftie liberal" I'm about as Liberal as William F. Buckley was when he was alive, fool. "Soon she will be praising Dorner as a hero like all the talking heads on CNN." Nobody is calling Dorner a 'hero', fool. Just saying that LAPD lit the fuse that caused it all from the start. They probably fired an innocent man who turned in a dirty cop. Took his job, his security clearance and his military career away from him. But you probably think that's funny. You are cut from the same mold as the lowlifes who set him up. "You're not too bright JustUs." If I'm not too bright you've got the IQ of a bag of steer manure. heh. :^)

Jim, it's comical to watch the likes of you goose stepping on the comment boards. What's your favorite tune? What's your favorite nazi marching song? "Es zittern die morschen Knochen"? Translated to mean "The rotten bones are trembling"? hah. Have a good day, Jim. You are a hoot and a half. :^)
