Have you ever had any cases that brought massive amounts of attention on you before?<br><br>

yes but...things potentialy could have been much easier if police would get their wish and have bullets with serial numbers or other identification for eacy tracing. the NRA and republicans (in general) are opposed even though law enforcement feels this would help tremendously in cases like this. the older sniper was found by police on oct 8 in baltimore and could have been apprehended back then and a bunch of extra lives would have been saved. certainly not any fault of the police and i am right there with everyone else in being thankful for a job well done.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>

Re: Thank goodness! - 10/25/02 09:17 PM

Agree on that, Sean. The argument that such info would give the government too much information on individuals is just specious. First, the information need not be owned by the government. Second, the government could find out exactly what I bought at the local grocery store last Saturday simply because I use one of those money-back scan cards (whoever invented them ought to go to jail for life) which records every single purchase I've ever made at that store. And if they can do that, they can find out more or less whatever they damned well please anyway.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"<br>

Re: Thank goodness! - 10/26/02 12:14 PM

I don't want to discount their efforts... but I don't see what that Sheriff did other than hold press conferences. It was pure luck that a truck driver found the snipers at a rest stop... the cops had nothing to do with it.<br><br>Either way, it doesn't matter... thankfully/hopefully everything can begin to get back to normal.<br><br>

Re: Thank goodness! - 10/26/02 12:18 PM

Well..their investigative efforts gave them the car to look for. Yeah, they didn't actually find them but had it not been for the clues the snipers left and the task force's investigation, then we would still be discussing the killings.<br><br>

Re: Thank goodness! - 10/26/02 12:27 PM

That is true... I guess I just have somewhat of a bitter taste in my mouth for police this week.<br><br>

Re: Thank goodness! - 10/26/02 02:50 PM

Giz, he did a lot more than hold press conferences. He kept the various jurisdictions from fighting with each other, made sure that each had input and kept the media at bay. Along with setting up a dialogue with the bad guys, he coordinated much of the action.<br>It could have been a mess, but he demonstrated leadership.<br>Even ATF and FBI can't be alone in the same room without fighting.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by sross on 10/26/02 05:52 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

Re: Thank goodness! - 10/26/02 03:41 PM

I agree sross<br>The man did a great job.<br><br>However the second guessing begins.<br>Just right now CNN TV are going over the letter the sniper left for the police. In the letter the sniper said that he was trying to call the police to negotiate, they treated my calls as a joke. "Through their own incompitence it has cost them 5 lives" - Now it seems that the media is going to take that and smear the police with it.<br><br>

Re: Thank goodness! - 10/26/02 04:19 PM

Lot's of second-guessing going on. The media really showed their collective asses with all those "profilers."<br>Were they ever off the mark.<br>I just got off the phone with a friend who has a position in washington and he says that the "chill" that was on that place was very real.<br><br>
