In Dorner's manifesto, he flatly blamed the LAPD for costing him his naval and law enforcement careers, but again doesn't elaborate, and says he has tried everything possible to restore his good name.
"I lost my position as a Commanding Officer of a Naval Security Forces reserve unit at NAS Fallon because of the LAPD," he wrote. "I've lost a relationship with my mother and sister because of the LAPD. I've lost a relationship with close friends because of the LAPD. In essence, I've lost everything because the LAPD took my name and new (sic) I was INNOCENT!!!"
He calls his rampage "my last resort," according to the manifesto.
Dorner writes that he knows that people who have been acquainted with him will be surprised by "media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days."
He goes on to even predict the nice things that would be said about them and assure the purveyors of those comments that he had no other choice.
"You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen. I know I will be villified (sic) by the LAPD and the media. 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."
