Chris Dorner

$1 Million Reward ...

Big Loophole

0213_chris_dorner_reward_one_million_article

Several private citizens were instrumental in cornering cop killer Christopher Dorner ... but there may be a gigantic loophole preventing any of them from collecting the loot.

There are 3 rewards.  The Mayor of L.A. announced a $1 million reward -- funded by private groups -- for information leading to the "capture and conviction" of Dorner.  Big problem -- technically speaking, Dorner must be both captured AND convicted to trigger the reward.

The L.A. City Council offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to "the identification, apprehension, and conviction" of Dorner.  Again ... no conviction.   City Council sources tell us there's already a disagreement between the Legislative Analyst and the City Attorney over how to interpret the reward language.

And finally ... the L.A. County Board of Supervisors offered a $100,000 reward for information "leading to the capture of Christopher Dorner."  One source at the Board of Supervisors tells TMZ,  "Dorner was cornered but not captured."

Translation ... technically speaking, no one may be entitled to the reward.  It's unclear if the Mayor, the City Council and the Board of Supervisors will bend the rules.

I anxiously await the group to sue the LAPD for failing to properly arrest Dorner, thus screwing them out of their money. Calling it now.

Typical LA mumbo jumbo rangling. Bait and switch. Noone cared one bit about that reward they just wanted Dorner and would say and do whatever to get to him. Typical LAPD crapola. This is what he was talking about in his Manifesto.

Of course there is a loophole. They never planned to give out any money. Anyone who thought they would, is a complete imbecile.

If he was captured and convicted the city would have paid millions more in court proceedings alone. so just suck it up and pay the reward. The tax payers got off easy on this one

I bet any money the police orders were to kill on sight so the money would not have to be given out..
