Prior to embarking on a violent crime spree throughout Southern California, Dorner posted a lengthy manifesto on his Facebook page detailing all of the people he planned to kill and why. The manifesto goes on to describe how Dorner plans to get revenge on the former LAPD colleagues whom he believes are responsible for his termination from the police department. The manifesto includes the names of all of his targets and also threatens to harm their families. Dorner writes that when he reported LAPD officer for use of excessive force, nothing was done. He claims that in retaliation for making the report, the police department fired him, saying he lied about the report. Dorner also writes of racism — citing an alleged physical fight with fellow officers who called him by a derogatory name.

February 8, Alternately horrific and pathetic, they reveal a man consumed by vengeful bitterness over perceived slights and injustices ranging from racial slurs in grade school to his firing as a Los Angeles police officer in for — in his telling — blowing the whistle on corruption and abuse in the police department. By Friday morning, police officials in southern California had yet to find the man they say has killed three people, including one police officer and the daughter of a former police captain.
Dorner promises to bring "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" to police officers and their families, stalking them "where you work, live, eat, and sleep" and vowing to "utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordinance and survival training I've been given," the manifesto reads.
In addition to his police training, Dorner had been a Naval Reserve officer who trained in military weaponry and who had been cited as a rifle marksmen and pistol expert. At a Friday morning press conference, San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said officers were able to follow those tracks for about a half mile before the ground became frozen.
But some officers and FBI agents are using Sno-Cats and military-style armored personnel carriers with wheel chains to search an area that includes many abandoned cabins where Dorner might have sought shelter. Kaczynski is serving life imprisonment without parole for killing three people and injuring 23 others in mail bomb attacks. He had no apparent intention of publicly acknowledging authorship, and he was tracked to his remote Montana cabin only when his brother recognized the rhetoric in the manifesto and reported it to the FBI.
Kaczynski used the US mail system and newspapers to publicize his beliefs. Dorner used something not available to Kaczynski in — posting to his Facebook page. But he also extols gun-control legislation, specifically citing Sen. Dianne Feinstein D of California for wanting to reestablish a federal ban on assault rifles. He has kind words for President and Mrs.
Obama , but also for former president George H. I want my name back, period. There is no negotiation. He owns a house in Las Vegas.
There is no indication that Dorner expects to give up or be captured alive, which adds to police warnings that he is heavily armed and very dangerous. I do not fear death as I died long ago. Already a subscriber?

Former Police Psychologist Analyzes Christopher Dorner’s Manifesto
Dorner is believed to have killed one police officer and injured two others early this morning, in addition to killing two civilians, on a spree that he threatened would have a "high action of violence" in an angry missive posted to his Facebook wall earlier this week. In the letter, Dorner detailed his grievances with his former employer, the Los Angeles Police Department, including his struggles with the department's internal affairs department, which ultimately ended in his getting fired, according to the manifesto. He blamed the problems with the LAPD for inspiring his killing spree. It has gotten worse," Dorner wrote. Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name. Dorner named members of the LAPD whom he would target and said they would not be safe at home or at work.
