14 Thur. Feb. 7, 13 17:55 PST Suspect's recent history - Appeal to get his job back was denied in 2011, upholding original decision back in 2008 to fire him. In 2007, he had reported a fellow officer for excessive force on Mr. Christopher Gettler. In his statement, he said that "she stood up and kicked Gettler twice in the left clavicle. And then...kicked him on the left cheek, causing him to start bleeding". It was later reported Mr. Gettler was schizophrenic and that Dorner filed the complaint about his fellow officer two weeks later. His allegation was denied by the female officer, the claim was classified as "Unfounded", he was charged with "making false statements" and officially fired in early 2009. In December 2012, he defaulted on his home in Las Vegas and just days ago his Naval Reserve career was terminated [edit: honorable dischage]. Source - ABC7 News. SeedyOne

[edit: per user /u/November_Bravo "1 Minute of Angle, in shooting terms this means being accurate enough to shoot a ~1" group at 100 yards"]. The video is apparently of Mr. Getter's interview after the event. He is the schizophrenic man Dorner claimed was a victim of excessive force. Getter's testimony supposedly confirms Dorner's complaint to his superiors but nothing has been shown to the public to confirm this. Source - LA Times. November_Bravo, SeedyOne
20 Thur. Feb. 7, 13 21:15 PST Press conference - ~400 homes expected to be checked this evening. No sightings or signs of him outside of the last tracks in Big bear in the snow/mud.

23 Thur. Feb. 7, 13 22:30 PST Online court documents reportedly show that the LAPD questioned Dorner's excessive force claims because of the timing of reporting it to his supervisor. Apparently he received an unsatisfactory performance review just before that, saying he'd have to "improve in order to move up in the department". Dorner had then filed a wrongful termination suit against the LAPD. Source - KTLA 5 News. SeedyOne

Search is ground only, SWAT in SnowCats, APCs with chains on them, etc. Efforts have zeroed in on a wooded area about a mile away from Bear mountain. Original snow tracks from the burned out vehicle were followed as far as possible until they hit frozen ground and lost them. Source - SB County Sheriff John McMahon. SeedyOne
