Charles “Burner” Johnson Settles ItPosted: February 14, 2013
Although cop-killer Christopher Dorner officially quit smoking a day after his standoff with law enforcement in Big Bear, Charles Johnson brings us some of the best forensic word parsing of the internest. It all hinges on the definition of the word “Burner.”
Okay, let’s take a breather.
An ex-cop turned serial killer was on the run with promises of killing more LAPD police and their families. Never mind that it was the City of Torrance police (not LAPD) who stupidly opened fire on innocents (in the City of Torrance, not Los Angeles) during the manhunt. That’s not important to Charles.
What IS important to Charles is that law enforcement screwed up, in his opinion, while hunting a heavily armed and unpredictable murderer with a death wish. The cabin where Dorner was holed up burnt to the ground during the standoff, with Dorner inside, and Charles blames the officers for deliberate arson.
In typical Johnson fashion, he plays the YesBut game. “I support the police but they screwed up.” In Johnson’s mind it had nothing to do with capturing a violent criminal, but with a secret vendetta – a conspiracy to kill Dorner. Pheeew.
Brilliant analysis Dr. Rumpswab. Nevermind that the fugitive himself indicated a death wish in his “manifesto,” according to Charles Johnson it was a vendetta by law enforcement officers who are guilty of arson. That settles it.

UPDATE: In case anyone thinks that Johnson’s Comment 249 was taken out of context, he clarified his allegation of deliberate arson in Comment 286.
