While I have not read the mission statements for the LA area police departments I would assume it says something along the lines of protecting the citizens. They appear to have become more of a danger to the citizens than Dorner. The cops just have to worry about Dorner. The citizens have to worry about Dorner and the cops. I would much prefer to just protect myself from Dorner than all the LA area cops. It is matter of time before someone ends up in shootout with the cops just procting themselves. Of course the offical report will not read like that. I can see the head lines now "man fires on police, killed".
