LA Mayor Villaraigosa: 'Relief' after Dorner standoff

FROM CNN WIRES:

Near Big Bear Lake, California (CNN) - It may take days before authorities can officially determine whether Christopher Jordan Dorner's body was found in the ashes of a torched cabin near Big Bear Lake, California.

But several signs early Wednesday seemed to suggest that the ex-Los Angeles police officer's vendetta against his brothers in blue ended in that wooden cabin with a shootout that left one deputy dead and another wounded.

The frenzied manhunt, road blocks and helicopter flights, which had brought the mountain town to a standstill for six days, died down Tuesday night.

And late in the evening, authorities announced that they found human remains in the cabin and would need forensic experts to identify them. But even as the question of Dorner's fate seemed close to being answered, other details eluded explanation.

This morning on "Starting Point," Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa

    What happen to innocent until proven guilt by a jury of your peers? Is it acceptable for law enforcement to be judge and jury and enact vigilantly justice? Will an outside review committee review all the actions of law enforcement to make sure they did not commit vigilantly justice?

    From the actions of law enforcement over the last week you know there had to be a shot to kill ordered on Dorner.

    Two women were ambushed by law enforcement: law enforcement did not even try to get them to exit their vehicle before being riddled with gunfire. Both women were injured by gunfire.

    One man was rammed and ambushed by law enforcement: law enforcement did not even try to get him to exit the vehicle before being riddled with gunfire.

    Four senior jazz musicians were ambushed by law enforcement: law enforcement did not even try to get them to exit their vehicle before being riddled with gunfire. Three of the musicians were injured by gunfire.

    My question is will all the law enforcement personnel that randomly cause terror and mayhem to civilians be prosecuted for attempted murder? I believe they should have a mental evaluation preformed, thoroughly investigated, and charged to make sure civilians are safe from their paranoid behavior.

    Also will there be a ballistic review done on all the police that were injured or killed by gunfire to ensure they were not shot by friendly fire?

    Will the review of the situation that started this mayhem be reviewed without bias or personal interest?
