Christopher Dorner is dead ... officially ... now that officials say they have POSITIVELY identified the killer's remains.

The San Bernardino Sheriff's Dept. released a statement saying, "The charred human remains located in the burned out cabin in Seven Oaks have been positively identified to be that of Christopher Dorner."

Officials say he was identified through dental records.

Dorner died in a remote cabin in Big Bear, CA -- where he engaged police in an intense gun battle. Dorner shot and killed one cop in the firefight and wounded another.

Cops had been chasing Dorner for days after he allegedly killed 3 people earlier in the month, including another police officer.

LMAO of at all the outrage that they burned the place to the ground with him in it! Even accepting for the moment that they did it intentionally....

It was a standoff situation with a barricaded active shooter who had already shot several officers. The use of lethal force was already on the table to take him out. So....

Lighting the cabin up with gunfire = good, lighting it up with fire = bad!!! What!?!? Come again???

Lethal force was already on the table. Is there a reason we should limit the kind and type of lethal force used? Remind me why i care if they killed him with bullets or fire???

Thank goodness original APB didn't go out to officers as we got a black male armed and dangerous. If spotted shoot on site. What a mess that would have been for LAPD. Thousands dead.

What should have happen was the LAPD captain tell all LAPD officers to stay at home for their own safety until civilians apprehend Dorner. Especially citizens think so little of LAPD. Why should they risk their lives and go out on patrol they are scheduled for when a killer called open season on ANY of them.

If he wanted his day in court then he should have surrendered previously instead of talking it to the extreme he did. Dorner was a cop. He knew what he was doing. He made his choices and he paid the price. F*ck him. My sympathies to the families of all the victims, including the family of Dorner himself.

Anyone else wonder whether he made use of that scuba gear during the fire? I'd imagine a good pair of goggles and an air tank/breathing apparatus would have become pretty handy once you've stopped, dropped and rolled. He could have been just hanging out in there for a while, loaded, ready and waiting for entry by force. I also wondered what would have happened if they'd put the fire out and no body was found. No more wondering, eh?

Are they sure it;s really him? This may sound a bit like something from tv show but, If he had any of the know how he could have easily ripped out some of his own teeth and placed it in a random body that he had previously planted there. If he did it right he could have easily destroyed all the teeth in the man's body, savor his own, and no one will no the wiser.
