Christopher Dorner's War

The manhunt is on in Southern California for Christopher Dorner, a former LAPD police officer and recently honorably discharged former Lieutenant in the Navy Reserves, who is accused of murdering three individuals (one police officer) and wounding two others, as a result of his firing from the department in 2008.

Christopher Dorner, most wanted man in California
From a cursory reading of Dorner's background, and his alleged injustice of his firing in 2008, it seems to me we have a very dangerous, well trained individual who has essentially declared war upon the LAPD for the department firing him for making false claims of brutality against a fellow officer.

This man has already been cornered twice by police, both times he either killed or badly injured someone. But that was before he was the LAPD's public enemy number one, being pictured on television and newspapers nationwide and being pursued into the mountains: he's cornered, with basically nowhere to go where he will not be identified and hungry for the blood of his brethren.

I have a very bad feeling, especially when considering his manifesto says as much, that Dorner is unlikely to be arrested or go down without a fight, and that many more will die before this fallen officer, from both the police and military, is brought down, and that authorities must treat this on his terms - as war - and be prepared to take him down at the first possibility.

What say you?

P.S. - I find it rather interesting that Dorner had not made one threat or started his reign of terror until he was honorably discharged from the Navy Reserves on February 1st, 2013. Has anyone looked into whether that was the final straw that led Dorner to commit these heinous acts? I just find it odd.
