Ok, so what's up with that Dorner guy? What did he do exactly (what crimes) and why'd he do it?

I was under the impression that he was a horrible murderer, but I've seen a few Facebook posts of people romanticizing the whole thing and acting like he was almost some hero. Did he actually do anything right, or are those people on Facebook just stup1d?

He killed 4 officers and I believe a few innocent people. Also, he held 2 people hostage, and threatened many people. He also stole a car and burnt down someone's cabin.

In 2009, Dorner was fired as an LAPD cop. He decided to take revenge on everyone involved. The only victim who was at all related to anything was his defense attorney's daughter, the woman who was killed in Irvine. The other officers only "faults" were being law enforcement. There is no way to justify what he's doing. He's not Rambo. He's an evil man and I hope he burned in that fire.

Thank you. People my age are really stup1d apparently.

Ok, so I just learned that he was actually fired because he ratted out another cop for beating up a handicapped person. I would say that he started out as a good person, but got really pi$$ed off and went down hill..
Report as
He supposedly ratted out his training officer but the hearings held cleared her
Report as
Good to know. It is definite that the person he ratted out actually did something wrong though, right?

Killing is NEVER ok. You should not use "oh I'm just making a point" as an excuse to murder, that's just awful.
Report as
My original comment was removed, for using the word "murd3r" apparently T_T
Anyway, that's pretty awful. K1lling is NEVER ok. It's only KINDA ok when it's self defense! You can't use "oh I'm making a point" as an excuse for murder. That's like saying "oh I'm making a point that Muslim terrorists are bad by murd3ring a bunch of Muslims". Yes there are bad cops but not ALL cops are bad.

I never said killing was ok!

In my other comment I put (some) read before you judge. There has been many cases where cops kill innocent people n try to cover sh1t up by saying oh the person was reaching to his waistband n thought he had a weapon when they had nothing but realized it too late, I have not heard a word from the two innocent ladies they shot like idiots because they thought it was Dorner, they didn't even bother to check if it was him they just started shooting n they don't even say sh1t about that! They said oh we believe it was a identity mistake, no sh1t really!!
Report as
??? You can't expect people to go around checking what. You say in other comments. Besides,your answer does not say some and I'm going by what you've said in your answer. I didn't say you said it was ok, but you're acting like what he did was justified which I don't think it could ever be.
Report as
What he did might not be justified but I could understand where he was coming from and I don't judge him for that, many people criticize instead of really being realistic and looking at both sides of the story
Report as
Nah nah nvm I've seen his side and now I am slightly more sympathetic. I already left a long comment about it on edward's answer. I'm basically neutral; Dorner did the right thing ratting out the cops, did the wrong thing and went about it in the wrong way when he went on the killing rampage. That police chief was most likely corrupt, but killing his kid for it wasn't right at all. The police did the wrong thing by making him burn alive (but he probably shot himself before that happened) in that cabin. What they did was for sure intentional and not at all what the law says they can do. Of course no one's gonna look into it because Dorner killed so many people and probably would've been executed anyway, but burning him was WRONG. The law says everyone gets to go to court. Casey Anthony probably k1lled her child, which is equally as despicable and she even got away with it. I mean, what gives a child k1ller more of a right to a court date than a cop k1ller? Cops don't decide that, they don't have that kind of authority.. So I get now what you're saying. Both were wrong, and it's a sad story all around.

He was a coward, a murder and someone who screwed up his own lift and then decided to blame others and punish as many as possible.

Ok, I just learned that Dorner actually ratted out the cops for beating up some handicapped guy, and that's why he got fired. So I wouldn't say he was the initial one to screw up his life. He screwed it up when he went on the murdering spree, but still I think he was a good guy at the start, but went downhill..
Report as
Well there's a question as to whether that person actually did what he claimed. The point is if you believe something to be true and you make an accusation against a person you'd better really know what you are talking about and be prepared for the aftermath. If you don't have a strong enough back bone for such a circumstance, don't take it on.
Report as
Yeah that's true. But regardless if he didn't have enough evidence to PROVE it, there's no question that members of the police force sometimes do pretty rotten things and I'm sure the claims were true. I guess he just REALLLLY went about it the wrong way & went a koo-koo..

Thank you. I've decided that neither him nor the police were the "protagonists" in all this. He was a good person, got ticked off and went completely psycho and evil. Initially had good intentions, but turned really, really bad (like Darth Vader lol) the cops didn't deserve to be killed, neither did that man's daughter and fiancé. That police chief was most likely corrupt, but still doesn't excuse what Dorner did. Police should not have burned him alive in that cabin, though. The law is the law and the police are supposed to uphold it, not let their emotions override and murder people who haven't gone through the procedures the law says he has to. The cops were also probably not being so great when they beat the handicapped guy and fired Dorner for that reason (turns out Dorner is crazy though, so it's probably best that Dorner was not in that position any more!) So yeah, neither side is innocent, both are guilty. Only thing I can say is that Dorner 100% should not have killed those people. I suppose he sort of had the right idea (kinda...) but went about it in the COMPLETELY wrong way.
