Explanation: You are forgetting that he sent his manifesto to the LAPD 1st and they failed to do their jobs after recieving it.
Personal Disclosure: Mind you that ^^^ is only valid if it is indeed his manifesto and that he gave the LAPD ample time to act on it before he started killing anyone.
If it is not his manifesto ... what does that tell us?
If it is his manifesto and he did give ample warning time ... what does that tell us?
If it is his manifesto and he did not give ample warning time ... then I have no issue with him being called a criminal and a murderer ok!

Okie news is reporting that Dorner recovered a bag of cash on the streets of Enid while he was training at Vance AFB, he returned the cash to EPD, it was almost 8000 dollars. The photos of Dorner show him in old BDU's from the 80's, with U.S Army, and Capt Bars, Is he Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or all of the above?

Keep your balance, don't exonerate this fellow, he's a murderer.
I think he speaks the truth, but in the end he's a murderer..
Think about that and don't get too excited..

I have heard your reasoning, and I have examined your arguments. While understanding the point from which you approach this, I cannot agree with your conclusion about the justification of these acts. Justice cannot be achieved by brutal acts, committed against functionally defenseless people, no matter what reasoning lies behind it, or how difficult it might be to attack the real centre of the problem that one is trying to address with such actions.
The only way to prosecute a campaign of battle justly, is to only destroy legitimate targets, targets who have committed unjust acts, helped create the state of oppression that is deemed to exist, and defend the sickened status quo. There is no, and will never be, a situation prevailing which makes the slaughter of unarmed individuals appropriate, justifiable, or acceptable. You say that such an act was necessary to shake the system out of its rigor, out of its safety zone. You may be right, but if that is the length, to which one must go to cause such an effect, then the effect is not worth the sacrifice. No effect is worth the sacrifice of even a single innocent. Not if one wishes a just result.
The only justifiable action that Mr Dorner could have partaken of, with any legitimacy what so ever, would have been a campaign against the person of those people he deems corrupt, not against thier families, thier friends, thier TV repair man, or postman. In killing an innocent, Mr Dorner makes himself an enemy not just of those who may have wronged him, but of the people as a whole.

LAPD (and many calif cops) have a blue wall of silence.
You NEVER rat out a fellow officer for misconduct.

Where is the honor in stooping to the level of those he hates and despises, to the point of physically threatening them? He even took the time to write a manifesto, outlining it. He did threaten them with death, but I see you have no problem with hat.
Why is he running ? He can turn himself in to federal authorities. He chose not to. It says a lot.
As for not being caught on CCTV (close circuit TV) - there are many back roads in the mountains and in the city and a former cop would know how to stay off the grid, so to speak. It's clear he has been planning and his planning certainly took street cameras into accou

It would be like justifying every A hole who decides to kill innocent people, based on "their" reasoning of why they need to do it. Imagine if EVERYONE decided that today, they are going to take revenge, any revenge against someone they feel has wronged them. The guy who raised your rent, or the gal who gives you a hard time at the DMV. I'm sorry, but I'm not buying it one bit. Two wrongs, don't make a right.
