Sniper's latest victim - 10/20/02 02:34 PM

I'm listening to a news report about this poor guy. He's in awfully rough shape. They've gotta get this headcase soon. I keep thinking of all our forum-mates who live in that area. Please watch your backs, you guys.<br><br>

Ya know, life goes on, but I really don't know what to say. You hear and read about in everywhere but if you don't live in the DC area you move on. Now through this place, a connection has developed I truly start to worry about my Mac family up.<br><br>Too Easy!

I agree. Ya can't zip yourself up in a freezer bag. But I can tell ya first-hand, that uncertainty is a real bugger. To this day, I get nervous if I see a plane that looks to be flying a little too low over Manhattan. Gives me the creeps big-time.<br><br>

There are so many White Astro vans here with ladder rack and box trucks.<br>They all cant be snipers.<br>I doubt if the nutcase is even driving those vehicles by now.<br>Im tired of freaking out but I still worry about my wife and son.<br>The shooting at 7 Corners was across the street where she works this a-hole shoots children at school.<br>Soon they will corner him or her or them and that will be the end<br><br><br>

Too close for comfort. I just hope that when they get him, he gets to see the round coming at his head. Give him something to think a/b for the last split second of his worthless life. <br><br>

Oh crap! I just caught the alert on the NYTimes.com front page. No details yet. I heard that 10 school districts have chosen to cancel all classes. This is nuts, but we gotta protect our kids at any cost. Damn I hope they nail this (these?) lunatic(s)!<br><br>

Re: Sniper's latest victim - 10/22/02 12:25 PM

Apparently this was the bus driver and he died...I hope they catch this guy or guys soon! But I fear that they only will when he/they slip up.<br><br>

May God watch over you and your family Swatty... I have an Aunt that lives out your way (not exactly sure the exact area - but it's enough for me that she isn't comfortable going anywhere unless she has to), so I have an idea of what it must be like.<br><br><br>

Re: Sniper's latest victim - 10/24/02 02:13 PM

I just find it odd that these are the same people that were able to shoot 13 people in basically broad daylight, and slip away every time virtually undetected. And yet decide to take a nap at a rest area a mere 30 miles away from the first shooting. They had to know the heat was being turned up on them. It was around 6pm last night that the media was reporting the Tacoma, WA lead. It seems that they would want to get farther away from the action before stopping to sleep. Either they are incredibly stupid or they are really incredibly stupid.<br><br>

Re: Sniper's latest victim - 10/24/02 02:33 PM

There are two of them maybe they can be shared between Va & Alabama<br><br><br>

Re: Sniper's latest victim - 10/24/02 02:40 PM

I would think that Alabama would get first dibs. Since it seems that they killed the two women there first?<br><br>

Prosecutor's from Md/Wash Dc/Va will meet tomorow to discuss charges.<br>The police are taking their time on formal charges just to make sure there are no loop holes for these two.<br>They are now suspects in the case.<br>Because a juvenile is involved his name is not formaly relesed by the Police/ATF/FBI.<br>They are crossing their T's and dotting the I's<br><br><br>

Re: Sniper's latest victim - 10/24/02 06:17 PM

The 17 year old is a minor for civil purposes but an adult for criminal charges. ( at least that's the law in texas)<br>If not, he can be "certified" as an adult and tried as same.<br>It is done all the time.<br><br>

Re: Sniper's latest victim - 10/24/02 06:23 PM

I believe its the same in Va also.<br>I think that is why the prosecutor's are meeting to discuss options.<br><br>

Re: Sniper's latest victim - 10/24/02 06:27 PM

I think they need to be absolutley certain about the ballistic test results. Maybe fire a couple of test rounds into the suspects' heads... y'know, just to be sure. <br><br>*oops! oh chief moose, sir. a little accident here. we need a mop...*<br><br>
