Although Dorner will probably fall in the end he is demonstrating how easy it is to exploit the mistrust and paranoia of the system. He is beating the system over the head with its own falsehoods. Many people are willing to believe the worst about the LAPD or eager to embrace the most vile possible construction on events, not because they are necessarily true, but because the system is no longer quite so trusted. And even when Dorner is finally cornered he will go down in certain circles as some kind of rebel, instead of as a kook.
Hanson hit the problem squarely on the head. His piece on falsity, written before the Dorner manhunt, anticipates many of its weak points admirably.
