If I may ask... What would you feel is the right way to go about it? The methods we are supposed to use were already ignored and denied to him. Police corruption is something that is not new to us, and we have plenty of stories about it and the coverups done by those in uniform to protect each other. When all legal methods prove to lead to a dead end in a situation that is clearly not resolved, what method is the "right" method?

What this guy is doing, is for the good of the country. While it is a "bad" act, it seems to be the only act left in a society that has given police and politics the power to hide their corruption with no recourse of discipline.
First, a couple of questions. Do you believe there are Muslim countries which are being oppressed by non-Muslim nations? If so, have the various terror attacks such as 9/11, Delhi, and the dozens and dozens elsewhere made you want to listen to their message or made you sympathize with their cause?
I hazard a guess and say no. Even though, there may be some truth to what they are saying, most of us cast them off as misguided at best and insane at worst.
The same will be done to this guy. Most will dismiss him as a nutcase, or snapping, or going off the deep-end. This will effectively moot any so-called crusade, point, or cause he may have. I, personally, do not believe that violence should ever be used to make a point or as a means of persuasion. Now, can it be highly effective in that? Of course.. But, those who would resort to such means and are under no physical threat to themselves or others, are probably not people you want to have over for dinner. Well, maybe some would.
But, I don't really wanna get into philosophical discussions on when and if violence should be used. There are certainly other options, legally, and politically speaking. An undercover sting or documentary done in conjunction with federal agents or even on his own, may have worked. Secretly recorded conversations, photos, and video of these corrupt, racist police officers and officials. At least enough evidence to take to the FBI to set up an official investigation.
This has been done throughout the history of law enforcement to great effect. Has it completely alleviated the issue? Obviously not. But, in order to do that you'd have to get rid of ALL people. But, just because YOU (Dorner) feel that you've exhausted all avenues doesn't mean you pick up a gun or make a bomb and start murdering people. Do we now begin to justify murder-suicides or mass murder, because the assailant saw no other way out, no other options? Was Timothy McVeigh right? How about the 9/11 hijackers?
There's always another option. One that doesn't involve death and destruction.
