If Dorner was dealt a truly severe injustice, which I am in no way ruling out, and the only way to rectify the situation included extreme measures in
the form of violence, I do not find it appropriate to bring innocent family members into the equation. Daughters and son-in laws who are are in no
quantifiable way involved in the injustice should not be gunned down in the parking lot of their housing complex. It is cowardly, it is cheap, it is
immoral, and it violates reason and ethics entirely. He should take his aggressors on directly. That's how it's done. It was done that way when
this country began, and it was done that way well before. Inciting terror is the absolute worst route I can imagine.
My thoughts exactly. I feel that the guy had interesting intentions (can't really say good, but you know what I mean), but he decided to target the
families of the people who mistreated him. Its absolutely ridiculous.

i think the mentality is that you can inflict the most pain on someone by eliminating their loved one. If your life is terminated you don't suffer
(or at least for long). If your loved ones life (especially your childrens life) is terminated you will suffer the rest of your life. Its not right
but that is the mentality.

I see. Thank you for pointing this out to me, as I have read (skimmed over) his manifesto, trying to figure out what this guy was after. Its said that
this is one of the biggest manhunts in the US history, so I want to know what this is about. In my opinion the response from police is always the
biggest when police are the victims, but here I think its quite obviously needed, as the guy seems to be very skilled (military and police), and seems
fixated on killing lots of people, including many innocents.
I don't think its at all possible for him to surrender. And I doubt that he will shoot himself. I think this will go pretty much how he planned
(although with a much lower death toll). There will be a shootout, couple of officers will be injured, maybe killed, but he will definately be shot
dead within the next few days (sooner than later).
