One of the deputies involved in a gun battle Tuesday afternoon with fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner has died of his wounds, law enforcement sources told The Times.
The San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to the sources.
Another deputy was also wounded in the shootout near a cabin where Dorner was believed to be holed up in the snow-covered mountains near Big Bear. His condition was not immediately known.
Great humanitarians that they are the left is reacting as you might expect:

It is amazing to read the racial component in the celebration of Dorner by the people doing so.
I’ve often said I thought it was a national disgrace that so much violence takes place in urban areas and cities don’t put the same effort to stop it.
After reading these comments and more importantly the twitter feeds of the people making them I find it amazing that any police officer would consider risking their lives for any of these people.
As I’m reading this I understand the cabin Dorner is in is now afire and the Swat team is inside. We don’t know if he has escaped, if he has burned or what the situation is. I’m hoping the hostages are OK.
This is not something to celebrate no matter what the result. Innocent people are dead and that doesn’t even cover the costs and the fear generated.
I would like to ask one question to those cheering Dorner murders on racial and or racial grievance grounds:
How does your justification of murder based on Dorner’s grievances, real or imagined, differ from the Klan’s justification of murder based on racial grievances real or imagined.
If you can’t see that and understand that, then King died for nothing.
Update: Barbarism is not acceptable and must be called out even if advanced by friends

but contrition once expressed should be acknowledged.

Let’s hope #teamdorner does the same.
