    Unemployment is a national security problem.

    Add in the fact that many tens (hundreds?) of thousands of people with military training and combat scars are unemployed.  Dorner is just a drop in the bucket of what might come.

    Our insane "national security" spending will be the thing that does us in as a nation.  These sorts of incidents could inflame into a full-bore civil war at some point.  Say what you want about "gun nuts" not being able to stand up to the incredible force of the U.S. military, but the tables turn quite drastically when you consider that we've trained millions of people, many of whom could go the way of Dorner.  Imagine what 50 Dorners with some communication and coordination could do.
