Developing story of accused cop killer Christopher garner burnt remains found inside a California cabin.
Are now believed to be those of the former LAPD cop.
Who went on a vengeful killing spree before eluding authorities for six days so -- committee's actions tell us about the mind.
Of a suspected cop killer.
Forensic psychiatrist doctor Michael -- -- joins us now with his thoughts your notes.
Our so amazing to me a doctor runner because you're looking at this totally different than I think we've heard before.
Starting with we need to pay close attention to how he eluded authorities so close to where they were your -- Sure why would start by just correcting and say that.
-- to to say that he's a cop -- it doesn't quite capture it sure he he got killed children a police officers and killed police.
But with this should be noted and recognized this is a spectacle -- when you think about to order you should think about Breivik in Norway.
You should think about stack flying a plane into the IRS building in Austin.
You should think about Eric Rudolph bombing abortion clinics in the Olympic park in 1996.
A guy with a garage.
Well more than a grudge somebody who wants to call attention to themselves who knows that if he -- something to Anderson Cooper he'll play -- -- vanity.
And in his manifesto be read by everybody who -- an -- on FaceBook if he was if this was all about his grudge.
He knew from his training how to kill many more officers but it was about doing something.
That to create a spectacle and and say look at me right up post this on FaceBook and like -- back.
Like Rudolph like -- wrapping himself around and ideology that we can all relate to who hasn't had a problem with the IRS we all have.
Would we fly a plane into -- we suggest that people start going up of course not and so we need to look at this the same way look.
Everybody has had a problem with a cop.
But if we denigrates.
The institution just as we would denigrate the military as a whole for Abu Ghraib.
We're gonna turn into the Congo but -- -- you if you cannot legitimize this kind of thing by giving it attention this is it's completely unacceptable and it creates conditions under which people would hide him right we don't know that we.
Have to get attention -- -- let's figure out they were -- the next one so it's 2007.
Why in 2007 and 2006 was not capable of this into that -- two -- I was not doing this why did it happen now.
The progression of a spectacle killer is a grudge.
And then being so invested in the grudge that it becomes you the idea you could sit down and talk to someone like this rationally there -- a friend or as a police officer.
Or or even -- psychiatrist and their feeling is don't take this away for me -- because this is what I organize my life around.
It may be delusional -- -- may not be but it becomes that.
Is the kicker.
I haven't heard anything from the American Bar Association.
The bigger message -- people lose their court cases every day.
People feel bad about their attorneys every day for those who say they can understand what he did.
He killed the children of his attorney anxious where we -- as a society -- if I don't like your attorney you can go and kill their children.
Anyone who works in the system will tell you.
Attorneys are threatened by their clients every day -- -- if we don't denounce this we set a precedent that people can target their attorneys.
And then we have chaos instead of rule of law is that what people want and shooting was assassinated two exact.
Actually exact but I think.
About the criminal defense attorneys -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And they have in likable people they have -- pass they have people who who aren't ex military or who aspired to police officers they have people who don't have to get paranoid to say.
My garage is worth more then you're like where your children.
We have to denounce collectively -- involves leaders and it involves you turn.
And it's scary this is why yes Twitter followers -- we're encouraging him you shedding light on that unfortunately we got to wrap up their doctor -- well there.
Forensic psychiatrist thanks much -- our.
