Generally, I’m pretty much pro-law enforcement as it’s a difficult job with a lot of room for second-guessing.

However, the performance in this case of law enforcement in general and Chief Moose in particular would be comical if it weren’t so tragic.

Did they really release an image of what a white box truck looks like??? Could I possibly help to catch this psycho if I only had a better idea what a white Astro van looks like??? How about a description of what the sniper looks like?

The picture of him holding up the sheet of copy paper with the address of the P.O. Box for tips, that has the wrong zip code crossed out and corrected in pen is just priceless. I’m sure that will make everyone feel safer, with Chief Moose on the case.

You almost get the impression that the over riding strategy is “just let the sniper keep killing until he messes up so bad that we catch him.”

These shootings are evil, but shooting a wife right next to her husband is positively twisted.

That's one of the more asinine things I have seen posted here in some time.

Ari Fleisher says the White House is satisfied with the investigation so far. Well, I'm certainly not satisfied! Borrow law enforcement from every police dept. in the country to go thru the tips coming in. Do whatever it takes to stop these snipers.

The sniper is toast now that his lastest victim worked for the FBI.

I heard were the Pentagon is thinking of using UAVs on the ba$tard.

I had to chuckle at that as well. Considering the seriousness of this case, how much effort would have been required to type out the address correctly and reprint it?

One of the most...?

Sounds like someone might need a tin foil hat size adjustment.

As someone who lives in the DC area, I can tell you it would be so much more helpful if y'all would post your info in one thread rather than starting a new one every time someone has some new info on this. It's silly to have 5 threads on the same topic. Everyone has a new angle and there's always more news to be made. Why not put it all on the same thread please?

I think the Feds are heavily involved, mainly because of the proximity to DC.

I know what you mean about the white van. They didn't need a composite....just had to go to GM.

Maybe you'd have a few minutes to correct the address and hand deliver it to Moose?

Duh... I'm going on national television, there's a typo in my visual aid -- what to do?! Oh, I know, pull out the trusty Bicstic.

Dr Moose holds up his Urban Studies Thesis for his PhD from Portland State.

Besides the wrong zip code, being folded and probable donut stains, there is another truly troubling reality here.

How long does it take for a letter posted in the DC area to get to that mail box, 2 days or 3 days? What if the information comes from outside the DC area, might it take 3 to 4 days?

It is obvious that information from the public is really not wanted Moose et al.

If they wanted info from outside the LE's, there would be a Web site, an email address and an 800 #. This would be professionally done and be on a professional poster/bill board behind all press conferences. Then, they would get the TV nets/stations to have trailers below the Moose containing those #'s and the url/email address while he is talking.

Instead we have the pitiful image of a crossed out PO box address being held up for info.

It is obvious that the Diversity King of Political Correctness, Chief Moose, does not want any feedback from witnesses and others who might have data on this crime.

They have their guilty person worked up and facts and clues would get in their way.

whats so bad about Moose? I've had a feeling there is a problem with him, but I can't put my finger on what. He doesn't seem stupid, really.
