The million dollar reward was for Dorner's "capture"...

... but he never was "captured," was he? Outta luck! (ABC):

A legal loophole could prevent good Samaritans, instrumental in ending the manhunt for a fugitive ex-cop accused of killing four people, from claiming more than $1 million in reward money because Christopher Dorner died and was not captured.

Last weekend, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa pledged $1 million, sourced from private individuals, companies and unions, "for information that will lead to Mr. Dorner's capture."

The L.A. City Council followed up with its own promise of a $100,000 reward, for information "leading to the identification, apprehension and conviction of Christopher Dorner."

But Dorner, accused of killing four people and threatening the lives of several dozen more, was never captured, apprehended or convicted. Instead, he died following a standoff with police near Big Bear, Calif., when the cabin in which he was barricaded burned down with him inside.

Ha ha! Villaraigosa bas a bright future ahead of him as a banker, doesn't he?

Also, am I the only one who thinks ABC has twisted the meaning of "Good Samarian" more than a little?

NOTE The old posters read "Wanted, dead or alive." We're not that honest, these days.

I remember a work site porta potty that had a placard for a reward. If you turned in someone who vandalized the porta potty, you could get $150, but only if the person was fully convicted of the crime.

More disturbing is the mounting evidence that they burned him purposefully and actually held him in the building after it started burning. Completely surrounded in a cabin, they decided not to capture and try him but to execute him.
