Loophole could deny tipsters $1 Million reward

Recommended Posts

A legal loophole could prevent good Samaritans, instrumental in ending the manhunt for a fugitive ex-cop accused of killing four people, from claiming more than $1 million in reward money because Christopher Dorner died and was not captured.

Last weekend, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa pledged $1 million, sourced from private individuals, companies and unions, "for information that will lead to Mr. Dorner's capture."

The L.A. City Council followed up with its own promise of a $100,000 reward, for information "leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of Christopher Dorner."

But Dorner, accused of killing four people and threatening the lives of several dozen more, was never captured, apprehended or convicted. Instead, he died following a standoff with police near Big Bear, Calif., when the cabin in which he was barricaded burned down with him inside.

The mayor's office has not yet determined if the reward could still be paid out given Dorner died.

Oh yeah, easy to offer big money when you already know you're going to kill him when you find him. :laugh:

Not a loophole if it's clearly stated.

Although you give the information in the hope the person will be caught, there is a likelyhood (in the US anyway) that they will die - either by their, or someone elses hands.

Well they should at least give them some money for the burned cabin.

If being trapped and burned in a cabin isn't captured, I don't know what is.

The home owners should get the reward.

I don't think he's going to get away.

Doesn't seem like a loophole to me.

Personally I think that $1m should go towards helping to repair the damage he caused, including any help that the families of the dead need to help come to terms / counselling / funerals

This. You really shouldn't be reporting crimes just for a reward...it should be human nature to want to do the right thing.

He was captured- made captive in the cabin. Then they burnt it down. Then his body was captured.

With LA's budget problems, I look for the city to weasel out of paying.

I don't know. But it was me, I would tell where he was hiding anyway.

It's normally a snide remark, but in this case you are really brave for going against most of this thread.
