"I'm not an aspiring rapper, I'm not a gang member, I'm not a dope dealer, I don't have multiple babies momma's. I am an American by choice, I am a son, I am a brother, I am a military service member, I am a man who has lost complete faith in the system, when the system betrayed, slandered, and libeled me. I lived a good life and though not a religious man I always stuck to my own personal code of ethics, ethos and always stuck to my shoreline and true North. I didn't need the US Navy to instill Honor, Courage, and Commitment in me but I thank them for re-enforcing it. It's in my DNA.
Self Preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death as I died long ago on 1/2/09. I was told by my mother that sometimes bad things happen to good people. I refuse to accept that.
From 2/05 to 1/09 I saw some of the most vile things humans can inflict on others as a police officer in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it wasn't in the streets of LA. It was in the confounds of LAPD police stations and shops (cruisers). The enemy combatants in LA are not the citizens and suspects, it's the police officers.
People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. How ironic that you utilize a fixed glass structure as your command HQ. You use as a luminous building to symbolize that you are transparent, have nothing to hide, or suppress when in essence, concealing, omitting, and obscuring is your forte."
Dorner writes at length that he's one of the "good guys," driven to do something extraordinary because of what has been done to him, not because of any innate evilness. It seems he wants to be thought of as a principled, ethical man, not a murderer. If there are "bad guys," they're inside the LAPD. Despite all his honorable service and the horrors he's seen, from the military to the streets of Los Angeles, he calls out the LAPD as the worst of them all, likening them to terrorists.
And that is why, he says, the LAPD can try to hide, but he won't stop. And he's not afraid to die for it: In Dorner's mind, he died on the day he was fired and what he saw as injustice began.

"I'll be waiting for a PUBLIC response at a press conference. When the truth comes out, the killing stops."
"The attacks will stop when the department states the truth about my innocence, PUBLICLY!!! I will not accept any type of currency/goods in exchange for the attacks to stop, nor do i want it. I want my name back, period."
Dorner has made his brazen threats clear. He will not stop, and the bloodshed will continue unless his name is publicly cleared. He wants the attention of the highest ranks of the department he so despises, it seems, and is intent on getting it.

"This department has not changed from the Daryl Gates and Mark Fuhrman days. Those officers are still employed and have all promoted to Command staff and supervisory positions. I will correct this error ...
"The blue line will forever be severed and a cultural change will be implanted. You have awoken a sleeping giant.
"I am here to change and make policy. The culture of LAPD versus the community and honest/good officers needs to and will change. I am here to correct and calibrate your morale compasses to true north."
Dorner's larger crusade against the LAPD seems clearly centered on his personal termination, but he views it as an example of a corrupt culture. He references Gates, the former chief of the department during the Rodney King beating case, and Fuhrman, a detective who called O.J. Simpson a n****r but denied doing so. He seemingly wants to remind people of past problems involving the police and convince them nothing has changed, that the LAPD is still rotten at the core.
He makes clear in his haunting statements that he will do what in order to "correct and calibrate" the compass of the LAPD, however high of a body count is necessary.

"Those Caucasian officers who join South Bureau divisions (77th,SW,SE, an Harbor) with the sole intent to victimize minorities who are uneducated, and unaware of criminal law, civil law, and civil rights. You prefer the South bureau because a use of force/deadly force is likely and the individual you use UOF on will likely not report it. You are a high value target.
"Those Black officers in supervisory ranks and pay grades who stay in south bureau (even though you live in the valley or OC) for the sole intent of getting retribution toward subordinate caucasian officers for the pain and hostile work environment their elders inflicted on you as probationers (P-1?s) and novice P-2's. You are a high value target.
You perpetuated the cycle of racism in the department as well. You breed a new generation of bigoted caucasian officer when you belittle them and treat them unfairly.
"Those Hispanic officers who victimize their own ethnicity because they are new immigrants to this country and are unaware of their civil rights. You call them [derogatory word for Mexicans] to their face and demean them in front of fellow officers of different ethnicities so that you will receive some sort of acceptance from your colleagues. I'm not impressed. Most likely, your parents or grandparents were immigrants at one time, but you have forgotten that. You are a high value target.
"Those lesbian officers in supervising positions who go to work, day in day out, with the sole intent of attempting to prove your misandrist authority (not feminism) to degrade male officers. You are a high value target.
"Those Asian officers who stand by and observe everything I previously mentioned other officers participate in on a daily basis but you say nothing, stand for nothing and protect nothing. Why? Because of your usual saying, " I......don't like conflict". You are a high value target as well.
"Those of you who "go along to get along" have no backbone and destroy the foundation of courage. You are the enablers of those who are guilty of misconduct. You are just as guilty as those who break the code of ethics and oath you swore."
