if he has held on to every perceived slight or injustice done to him until he tipped over into a revenge war, I'm not sure he'll stay cool enough to wage a long term guerilla war.
He's already planning to die fighting, at least according to the reporting of his message.
That will probably lead to an OK corral firefight after a few hit and run attacks.
He may carry it on for months, but I'd be surprised. I'd be more worried that when he decide it was time he'd do something like drive into a police gathering either armed to the teeth, or even with a huge vehicle bomb on a suicide attack.
but while acknowledging at least some of the cops appear to prefer him shot "resisting arrest" than in custody, there is the fact the statements left by him makes it pretty clear he expects to be kill, since he stated even if his name was cleared he wouldn't be around to see it.
Such an attititude coupled with the declaration of war on the police department would indicate to me he probably intends to go down in a gunfight. Suicide by cop if you will.
And he has done what even most criminals don't, he has killed a cop's family before he got the cop and bragged about it basically. Knowing the man you're hunting intends to kill you, has all your training and skills or maybe more, is willing to kill your family to hurt you if he can't get to you right then...........all that is bound to affect the cops.
It's not justification for murder, but it certainly puts pressure on the cops. Snipers are used to take out people holding hostages and threatening them. This guy has threatened every cop on the force, and has killed a family to back that threat up.
I'm not sure how many people wouldn't shoot on sight under those circumstances. Doesn't mean it's right, but it's not hard to understand.
If you love conspiracy theories, the cops actions could make you believe he knew something they didn't want investigated in open court. But anything like that would have probably been in his statement of cause.
James probably is right his only chance is to surrender to someone else. If he changed his mind he'd be better off to get clean out of state and surrender I think.
to California, I think of "B-1 Bob" the notoriously whacko Congressman from part of LA County.
But I realized I shouldn't have bothered you about this, James, when I noticed that none of the News people could keep it straiight either.
Please excuse the correction, it was too minor to bother you with.

Dornan is a well-organized and intelligent psychopath, and probably has been for most of his adult life. Until now he simply kept his urges under control. He has, no doubt, been manifesting this fantasy of becoming an antihero for some time and then, one day not long ago, he could no longer control it and it popped-out and now we have what we have. A trained murderer on the loose who, in his own mind at least, has committed justified homicide and is now on a mission to leave a legacy.
His manifesto, which is what it is, reveals a deeply disturbed egocentric psychopath on the verge of turning sociopath which lends us some clue as to why he is doing what he is doing today and why he is a hunted man.
Oddly enough there are some hailing him a hero. Care to guess whom?
Only place I recall hero or anti-hero applied to him is here in SE.
I wouldn't be surprised if some of the borderline anarchist types see him as fighting against the "man" standing up to the system.
He'll end up being regarded as another Rambo by those that like to daydream of violent responses to the system.
in the search box, type in "chris dorner". Also "we are all chris dorner". Lots of stuff and new sites on there and many in support of him. Read the comments. Go then to latimes and read the comments after the stories there. Here's an example of one facebook page supporting Dorner.
are cause for laughter or dispair. There may be one or two understandable comments mixed in with the asinine, bigotted, and sound bite repititions of some crackpot views.
They generally lead to dispair of the existence of intelligence.
Facebook? it's good for looking up people, it's good for entertainment. Comments on friends activities are generally atta boy's or joking around with each other. That's not counting the flirts of course. It's fun, it's good for supporting friends, it's an available all the time gossip at the malt shop.
Comments on current affairs? sad in that at least half them are as asinine as the ones after web pages news stories.
odd how we do that.
Billy the Kid, Bonnie and Clyde
First two, ok three, that come to mind, then there's the kid in the northwest last year, don't remember his name.
Ran across some site other day that seem to favor the idea he knows something the LAPD doesn't want to get to news reporters and he is just responding to an attempt to silence him. Others that he's fighting back against prejudices and injustices dealt him. One proposed pyshcoanylsis on some newscast labelled him as one that stored up every perceived personal injustice until he tipped over.
Anyone here feel "the ideal situation" is for the police to "take Dorner out"? A friend wrote that to me and I replied the ideal situation would be for him to surrender to some law officer who wasn't determined "to take him out". Does Dorner's actions justify any collateral damage caused by police, such as shooting up a truck with 2 women in it, or another truck with a man in it?
This gives them the opportunity to consider all outcome scenarios and have story questions ready in advance. Their worst nightmare is to have everything go just fine and have no one to legitimately criticize. Fortunately for them, they have their own reliable "whipping boys" to turn to when there's no one else to flail. If you get the idea I distrust the press, you're right.
of being the "Drunken Cossack" that was mistakenly invited to a Black Tie Dinner.Bearing that in mind,allow me to give my thoughts on this.
Dorner is an extremely dangerous fugitive that claims to be heavily armed,this man is nothing less than absolute evil.
He has a lot of ego investment in this,he was once a member of two forces of good,the USN and the LAPD.He felt wronged when he failed at both and then embarked on a murder spree.( the very antithesis of the heroes he identified with).
So what does the scumbag do? Of course,he goes out and murders the daughter of the police captain that defended him and her fiance as revenge for the captains failure to get him off! Two totally innocent human beings that didn't deserve it.
Not content to stop there,he performs a cowardly ambush of two cops,murdering one of them.The dirtbag wants to commit "suicide by cop" and he'll probably get his wish.
Piers Morgan is a hero of his,he could surrender to him? Meanwhile he has fans dedicating Facebook pages to him,calling him a hero?
Make no mistake,Dorner is no hero.He's a fly on a pile of sh*t.
they don't make a Martyr of him. Better he live long enough to be recognized for the troubled person he has become. Although the LAPD goofed in shooting at the wrong trucks, they didn't deliberately target innocents, which Dorner has done. Also, the cops he shot weren't even members of LAPD. I read that his facebook page was updated in the last two days, but maybe wasn't him, although things previously removed were replaced. Other than that possibility, I don't think he's been heard of since the day of the truck burning. He may already be dead from suicide somewhere near Big Bear and body already cold by the time they got infrared up there looking for him. He's obviously having a breakdown of some sort and if the truck broke the axle while he was using it instead of it happening when towed, then that might have been the last straw that pushed him over the edge to off himself.
try to go out in a blaze of notority.
Shootout or suicide bomber? yes.
Alone, hidden, unnoticed? no
Of course if his illness is such that he swings from one extreme to the other, if he suddenly felt regret for the murders, who can say what he would do since his actions are probably going to be extreme. He'd probably kill himself before he'd turn himself in.
