Four Split $1M Dorner Reward

May 08, 2013  | 

Four people who provided crucial information in the hunt for former Los Angeles Police Officer Christopher Dorner will split what is expected to be a $1-million reward in the case, authorities announced Tuesday afternoon.

The division of the highly anticipated reward, sought by at least 12 people after a February gun battle that led to Dorner's death, was overseen by three retired judges and made public in a 12-page report released by the Los Angeles Police Department.

The money will be paid in installments to a couple held captive by Dorner, a ski resort employee and a tow truck driver. The reward was divided based on the "value of the information provided to law enforcement and how directly" it led to authorities to the fugitive former LAPD officer, the report said.

Jim and Karen Reynolds, who were bound and gagged by the rogue ex-officer, will get 80% of the reward because they provided information that "directly led to the hot pursuit and capture of Dorner," according to the report.

I MAY BE WRONG, BUT LOOKING AT IT, WITH A GENUINE BIASED EYE, THE MONEY SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE MURDERED VICTIMS FAMILIES(POLICE AND CIVILLIANS), NOT THE CITIZENS, WHO ARE ALIVE AND WELL. THEY MAY HAVE SUFFERED AN "INCONVENIENCE" WHICH CAN BE ADDRESSED BY LOCAL AND STATE DA VICTIM-WITNESS OFFICES. THEY GOT THEIR REWARD WHEN DORNER CHOSE NOT TO MURDER THEM, AS HE WELL COULD HAVE. NO ONE SHOULD PROFIT FROM THIS HORRIFIC EVENT. I AM DUMFOUNDED BY THE HUE AND CRY FOR THE REWARD. WHAT HAPPENED TO "CIVIC DUTY". HAS SOCIETY BECOME SO JADED THAT IT'S ALL ABOUT, "WHATS IN IT FOR ME". ENTITLEMENT, SEEMS TO BE THE NEW BASIS OF OUR SOCIETY. ANYWAY THAT'S JUST MY OPINION, AND I MAY BE WRONG. AS AN OLD COP I GUESS, I SHOULD JUST RETIRE AND TRY TO GET AWAY. IS THE UNIBOMBER'S CABIN AND LAND UP FOR SALE! I'LL BET IT'S QUIET THERE!
