This is perhaps the most direct threat, one that police say Dorner has carried out already.
He is telling LAPD officers that he will target their mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and children. He names some of them, including retired officer Randy Quan, whose daughter may have been the first victim. It's unclear what Dorner means about having a family of his own, but his threats to wreak havoc and commit mass murder are clear.

"The Violence of action will be HIGH. I am the reason TAC alert was established. I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty...
"This will be a war of attrition and a Pyrrhic and Camdean Victory for myself. You may have the resources and manpower but you are reactive and predictable in your op plans... I have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving. Do not waste your time with briefs and tabletops."
Dorner doens't just threaten to kill, he threatens warfare. He is almost inviting LAPD officers, daring them, to try to stop him. It is as if he knows how it will end, and he doesn't care. He believes he will win the war he is waging, although it will cause his suffering and death just as much as that of the victims he plans to kill.
