He is surrounded.
Why the forests of southern California law.
What's your advice to him at this point in time.
-- what we can stop but -- we don't want that either go down in a bad way.
Nobody want to be more violent please put down -- guns come out here and got them and surrender no more they're gonna come of this.
Yeah I mean if you read the manifesto I'm sure you -- James you know that he said that he's not coming out of this alive and and he wanted LAPD.
Detectives former police officer's current police officers he wanted them he one of their families dead.
He said that he never had a chance to have a family -- he was taking bears and he said he wanted his name cleared that he would not.
Be alive to see his name cleared it appears from all intents and purposes that this man does not intend.
To come out of this -- and alive.
And really if he does he knows that he's going right to jail right to trial potentially -- right to death row.
Yeah I mean there's you know his future is bleak there -- you know there's no.
No way around that at this point it felt like -- I needed.
It did it all together -- terrible situation.
James I got to ask you what what what was the starting point and this I mean.
He was fired from the LA police department for years ago.
Do you know of any of any event.
That -- might have.
That might have -- -- -- this behavior do you know of anything that might have triggered this it all and end is this the man that you knew.
-- four -- five years ago.
Yeah you know I I really I am I'm completely in the dark as to what the catalyst was or could this kind of behavior I am.
At least vaguely aware.
You know -- being terminated with -- here and -- it went through the grievance and appeals process.
It's my understanding lasted until 2011 or something so he believes -- current number of your -- conflict there you'll our -- was.
Was an ongoing thing for a few years cook but in any event yeah I mean there is it.
I I can't offer any explanation or any real impact is what the -- may have -- you work better -- to this point.
Certainly you know certainly not -- characteristic of Chris -- who I am -- where I'm at -- you know impolite and don't college.
And yet and yet mr.
-- -- he had former girlfriends and his ex wife who really being interviewed in recent days and other friends say they're not surprised.
You know perhaps they saw a different side -- Tikrit and I -- -- you know like that might my experience -- was.
Was are driven and that -- -- -- respectively.
I believed to be an honor them and intelligent guy and yet on the you know I've been interviewed a number of times over the -- gate as well and and I know the -- suspected you know provides some.
Come in -- -- the what's going on here what -- what.
Thought that earned her skirt the worse but.
-- I I'm I'm really had a lot.

Everybody is kind of looking for you know what it is that turned this man the LAPD has now reopened this investigation.
Not so much to clear his name but to clear the department any -- -- -- might be getting from this problem.
You know it in your mind's eye of the past five days mysterious -- that that.
Christopher -- was hiding in those mountains was he looking for a way out do you believe or was he looking to exact more revenge because it looks to us like.
At the eleventh hour he was looking to get away today.
Yeah yeah I think you know I can't get I don't know what better than anybody else does but yeah I again I wish there were some way I can.
You know -- -- -- but on their brother or somewhere else bring that that situation to a local and could not violently but.
You know it if the mystery to me I don't -- -- -- like we understand what.
Withdraw you know what would bring him to the point that he thought was an appropriate court back tonight I don't Al.
Actually have no clue as motives are what are you can't hear other -- what you know written in the manifesto -- You know again I can I can speculate on the rest of the people but until you know that we actually -- mr.
Boehner -- -- It's it's it's a mystery to me it.
