Experts consulted by the L.A. Daily News said the writing is indicative of an intelligent and opinionated man "whose mind has unraveled, likely due to mental illness, paranoia and possibly unresolved trauma."

"This is a homicide suspect who has committed atrocious crimes, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, told ABC News while curtly dismissed the manifesto. "If you want to give any attribution to his ramblings on the Internet, go ahead, but I do not."
Dorner, who was extremely unhappy "with his lot in life," has now gained national notoriety as thousands of police officers participate in the manhunt.
"The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse," wrote Dorner. "I know I will be vilified 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."
Found on his now disabled Facebook page, Dorner’s statements portray an extremely intelligent and opinionated man.
An individual who promoted gay rights and gun control, but whose mind has now become unraveled – likely due to mental illness, paranoia and possibly unresolved trauma – Christopher Dorner is now the most wanted man in America.
Dorner, 33, who lived with his mother in La Palma, California, is wanted in the killings of Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiance, Keith Lawrence, in Irvine on Sunday. Quan is the daughter of former police captain Randal Quan. He represented Dorner in the LAPD departmental hearing that resulted in his firing from the force in 2008.
"Dorner doesn't need a prepared and clever criminal defense lawyer; instead, he'll need a prepared and skillful undertaker," John Contini, a Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney and author of several real-life crime dramas including Danger Road and Feeling the Heat, told Examiner. "I doubt this case will end with his surrender and a trial by his peers."
