The search for a fugitive ex-police officer wanted in the slayings of three people took police to a San Fernando Valley home improvement store and to the home of a possible target in a quiet Southern California suburb.

Also, authorities have set a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Christopher Dorner and small towns remained on edge from the din of police helicopters and cruisers staking out schools.

Authorities have been working to protect dozens of families in the area considered targets based on Christopher Dorner’s Facebook rant against those he held responsible for ending his career with the Los Angeles Police Department five years ago.

Among those the 33-year-old Dorner is suspected of killing is a Riverside police officer, and on the fourth day of the manhunt, authorities put up a $1 million reward for information leading to his capture.

“Our dedication to catch this killer remains steadfast. Our confidence remains unshaken,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said at a news conference alongside police chiefs and mayors from Irvine and Riverside. “We will not tolerate this reign of terror.”

    This episode has taught me a lesson about the possibility of a police state in America.If they can’t catch one guy,how are they going to disarm millions of determined,resolute,disobediant,irate, AR15 toting, constitutional Republic supporting, citizens? I don’t think that even billions of rounds, in the hands of a butch DHS mini despot will be enough.
