To me, the right outcome was to give Dorner at least the opportunity to give up peacefully (while trapped in the cabin), then take him out if all other options were exhausted. There was no place for Dorner to escape to. What Dorner's plans were as far as wanting a trial or taking his own life should have no bearing on how the police chose to handle the situation.
The way the police handled this whole thing just proved Dorner's point, so mission accomplished I guess. Question is, is anyone gonna hold the LAPD accountable or are they gonna just sweep it under the rug.
