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."
Dorner calls out different races in the LAPD and puts them all on notice they could be killed to pay for the department's wrongs. He singles out lesbians on the force as being misandrist, or hating men, though he didn't give specifics. It seems as if he is justifying each possible murder that could occur. He lays out how he will be judge, jury and executioner for each of them. Nobody is exempt.

"Citizens/non-combatants, do not render medical aid to downed officers/enemy combatants. They would not do the same for you. They will let you bleed out just so they can brag to other officers that they had a 187 caper the other day and can't wait to accrue the overtime in future court subpoenas. As they always say, "that's the paramedics job...not mine". Let the balance of loss of life take place. Sometimes a reset needs to occur."
Perhaps one of the most startling things is that Dorner specifically addresses us, the everyday citizen. He tells us to let his victims die. Do not help them. He believes that their deaths, their murders at his hand, are part of a great and necessary "reset."

"No one grows up and wants to be a cop killer. It was against everything I've ever was. As a young police explorer I found my calling in life. But, As a young police officer I found that the violent suspects on the street are not the only people you have to watch ...
"To those children of the officers who are eradicated, your parent was not the individual you thought they were. As you get older, you will see the evidence that your parent was a tyrant who lost their ethos and instead followed the path of moral corruptness. They conspired to hide and suppress the truth of misconduct on others behalf's. Your parent will have a name and plaque on the fallen officers memorial in D.C. But, In all honesty, your parents name will be a reminder to other officers to maintain the oath they swore and to stay along the shoreline that has guided them from childhood to that of a local, state, or federal law enforcement officer."
Dorner wants to make clear that this isn't who he ever thought he would be. But even more than that, he has haunting words for the loved ones of his victims: They aren't who you thought, either. Dorner believes he is righting the wrongs that nobody else has tackled, and despite what people will say about the victims, Dorner believes they deserve what they are getting. He goes on to quote Thomas Jefferson in saying that it sometimes take the "blood of patriots and tyrants" to refresh the "tree of liberty." Dorner apparently believes that he is the man riding in with a white hat to fix the wrongs of one of the nation's best-known police forces.
