Oh, I imagine he'll get the death penalty. When the cops find him.
Just as a twisty little side plot which I don't think to be the case, given Dorner's propensity for "making friends" in the LAPD, you could kidnap
him and do him in somewhere, burn his truck out, fake all this stuff and sign his name to it, do a lot of quick homicides in his name of people you
didn't like but Dorner might have known (or that you could tie him to somehow), and then let the cops chase around after ghosts.
Maybe toss in a few phone calls purporting to be him. HA! HA! You missed again! and off it goes for another round.
It would be easier to do if you knew Dorner to be outspoken, weird, and maybe viewed as "an outsider" or "odd".
For example. Let's say you know some freaky dweeb type guy given to outbursts and weird antisocial behavior. He had a run-in with someone else you
don't like. So you, wanting to kill the person you don't like (or a relative of his), whack the dweeb, dispose of the body, then proceed to kill
the people you detest, and post a 'manifesto' from the dead dweeb's home computer. Plant some mad evidence, the odd rifle, some drugs, a few wild
political screeds in crayolas, then for a finale you post that you're going to whack a few random cops.
You do. Not that hard unless their wind's up. I'm assuming the perpetrator doesn't have any trouble killing people.
Next move, you leave the dead dweeb's burned out Volvo in a state park with a note "Ha! More cops will now die!" and give 'em a call on a prepaid
now and then to keep them milling around like fire ants around a stomped nest.
Oddly, the trail is "cold" and the dweeb is "so crafty, no one can track him!" mainly because he's in a nylon mesh bag with some concrete at the
bottom of the bay. They're so fixated on their revenge on the dweeb that no one thinks to look for a totally orthogonal explanation. My take on
things is that nothing much blinds a cop than a cop killer, as evidenced by the LAPD shooting up random cars (and those are just the incidents you
heard about). They'd be so focused on that they'd never look past it. Meanwhile, you've gotten rid of the person you detested, and you're scot
free, as long as you keep your mouth shut.
I've often wondered if at least some percentage of 'copycat killers' are just useful idiots that someone has framed up in order to kill someone
they don't like. If I didn't like my state senator, for instance, all I need's someone to overtly threaten them with death, and it's game on, if I
can lead the trail back to the doofus that made the threat.
