    it's both wise and appropriate to work through "the cultural narrative and intersections with race, power, memory, and identity".  A matter of a murderer killing multiple people in cold blood is not one of them.  You're not so subtle suggestion that I must be "afraid" of something because I'm willing to call him a murderer and believe that Nothing justified what he did is pretty shallow for someone who's trying to claim that he's such a "deep" thinker that he considers the cultural aspects of the mind of a person who doesn't give a shit about the lives of innocent people is more important to understand than to be concerned about the innocent people who have already been killed and the innocent people who might yet be killed.  Unbelievable that anyone could think they're being superior to others because they're looking at this tragedy from a "cultural narrative" and considering it from the "intersections with race, power, memory, and identity".  It'll be a cold day in hell that I'm impressed with such a show of cold hearted intelligentsia.

      Studying people's perceptions of Dorner is a distant second to taking him off the street, but most of us aren't qualified to do the latter.

      If there's someone out there believing anything favorable about him, let's find out why so we can combat that attitude.
