Audio which proves police involved in the siege against Christopher Dorner deliberately planned to set fire to the fugitive’s cabin was preceded by an attempt by authorities to impose a media blackout in an apparent effort to cover up the chain of events that led to Dorner’s death.
As the standoff reached its height, Big Bear-area police scanners were disabled online in order to “ensure officer safety.” However, the feeds were not cut until after police were clearly heard discussing plans to “go ahead with the plan with the burners,” while on another audio feed from a local news broadcast, cops were heard shouting, “burn this motherfucker.”
At around the same time, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer announced that police had asked news networks not to film live footage of the scene.
Earlier in the day, the the LAPD issued a request to media outlets to “please stop tweeting” about unfolding events.
