Or someone will drop a dime on this rogue cop who's now wanted for murder.
Some video I'm gonna show you here it was released over the weekend at Joe's corner.
Undergoing police academy training back in 2005.
Now the city and private donors have raise a million dollar reward.
Saturday -- for information leading to the -- of the capture and conviction of corner.
Calling him a domestic terrorist.
LAPD says a huge reward sends a message that criminals cannot target law enforcement.
For vengeance now joint FBI local police and US marshals task force is going to handle the calls and coordinate response.
And -- our case.
We have to prioritize obviously 600 loses a lot of information to sort through.
So the investigation.
Will prioritize those -- based on the information that we received.
And those -- will be called upon immediately.
After initially taking really hard line on this city announces it's going to reopen the case that led to -- dismissal.
Number one to show the city that the dismissal was fair and impartial but also great to show -- or who's watching TV -- believe.
But they are listening to his concerns and if that's something he mentioned.
Right what's going on in the search of of the mountains the -- ski resort.
Where investigators found orders pick up truck.
-- echoes back at Thursday of course -- police have begun to scale back today about thirty.
Deputies and officers headed back up in the mountains to look at a few remaining -- if you will.
High up in the elevations.
So at this point police have no reason to believe that he is still there.
However they -- they're not quit until every residence -- -- Riverside police today.
Did release a photo of 34 year old officer Michael crane he was killed during an ambush.
By door they believe he's a former marine he had to tourism in the Middle East.
He leaves behind a wife and three children a boy ten years old girl four years old.
And later today Greg we expect the DA in Riverside County to file murder charges against scorer.
Right now they have no clue exactly -- he has -- as you heard we have 600 leads to track down and maybe about a hundred detectives.
We have launched an -- thanks very much let's turn now military church she who is a former deputy assistant director they FBI's counter terrorism division Terry good to see you.
-- is we mentioned Ed Warner is burning pick up truck found about a -- miles east of Los Angeles the mountainous.
Ski resort area of big -- does that make it.
Tough to track him down.
Does he -- -- -- advantage.
Does he's training.
Give him some skills.
-- -- it makes it very.
Advantageous to him it's very difficult to conduct searches in the wilderness.
-- had experience with this before and these teams that are up there are gonna -- have trained in -- -- very -- type of terrain probably even in the San Bernardino Mountains.
But think about it if you've been out of the wilderness and you've been out in the in the woods on hiking trails on all logging roads you don't know what's around the corner.
When you come across old abandoned logging a quick -- fire equipment or something.
You have to look at -- you have to check it out if you come across an abandoned car you can have all the arms and all the people with you that you want all the tracking dogs that.
It actually somebody has to go check that out and and look in the window albeit pretty cautiously you know theory isn't the normal type of thing you -- -- right what we've done it.
We search for Eric Rudolph the Olympic bomber for well over a year in the -- -- national for itself.
A law enforcement prepared to do this and I think given the challenges they're really doing a good job down Rudolph was on a run for five years unabomber of course at large for the better part of seven to -- years but look.
What do you make speaking of the unabomber what do you make of -- Warner's manifesto.
Which lashes out at all kinds of people and sort of names names and put out a hit list on all these folks we see anger paranoia.
You see anger you see somebody very well educated and very accomplished.
You see somebody is highly intelligent.
But you also see somebody who's extremely angry and he's out of control.
The unabomber was in control the unabomber selected specific targets as you just mentioned was active for seventeen years.
So he was in control what he's doing mr.
Joyner is no longer in control he is out -- I used the very training that he acquired.
And two go after the very people used to work next of now -- the one million dollar reward how vital use that in motivating the public not to mention the widespread media attention.
Well the one million dollar reward is important because it gets the public's attention.
In other cases sometimes the people leave and didn't know about the reward and be called anyway if they saw something important that.
In this instance I think again the police department as -- when a great job.
-- going to the public through the media.
Giving the right kind of information to focus the public's attention.
On what they have to -- to try to in this and in the end it sooner rather than later Terry church he was on the unabomber case as well as the Olympic park bombing case thank you so much good to see -- -- -- --
