US To Use Drones In Chris Dorner Manhunt

from We were hoping to evade coverage of the latest mass distraction du jour,
that of the former LAPD officer Chris Dorner who recently went rogue
following a three man murder spree and who has vowed to kill again as
per his 6,000 word manifesto, but the US government had made it impossible following confirmation that the search for Dorner is now the first official drone-hunt in US history.

The Express reports:

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.”

Asked directly if drones have already been deployed, Riverside Police
Chief Sergio Diaz, who is jointly leading the task force, said: “We are
using all the tools at our disposal.”

The use of drones was later confirmed by Customs and Border
Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who revealed agents have been prepared for
Dorner to make a dash for the Mexican border since his rampage began.

He said: “This agency has been at the forefront of domestic use of drones by law enforcement. That’s all I can say at the moment.”

And once Dorner is found by remote-control, it will be again up to drones to secure his “elimination.” If for no other reason than to perform a ground test of just how the
recently enacted drone-facilitated extermination of US citizens sits
with various instances of the US judicial system.
