When is the "Ghoul alert" going to be attached on these threads?

ghoul Pronunciation Key (gl) n.
One who delights in the revolting, morbid, or loathsome

The rubbernecking keeps getting worse by the minute. The News Drama effect sure does "affect" this forum. Ever feel like you are being led?

Since the Child Abductions news stories lost their legs in the media this has replaced that missing piece in the personal make-up that most of you have felt lately. Gross

I don't normally share in conspiracy stuff but this woman's death made me reconsider. She worked for the FBI's infrastructure department that ASSESSES THREATS and ISSUES WARNINGS. Makes me go hmmmmmmm.....

Yep just go to this site for a composite of the GMC killer van: http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:B5HBpslCTy8C:www.chevrolet.com/csv/van/images/astcar_main.jpg"

For the HTML impaired and the Klowns coming up with this composite picture, here is a little help from the web site found by Google:

Anyone who has seen a van like this in America or Canada, this past month, can send a post card to the address below shown by PC Moose:

Please be sure to send your Postcard Van Sighting Info to the corrected zip code as shown by PC Moose!

Moose just doesn't inspire confidence. There have been times when his replies have not matched the questions and he seemed out of it, making me wonder if he takes something to control his temper tantrums. IMHO no one who has difficulty controling his temper or communicating should be in charge of a case this important.

True but I've noticed they usually want to get a minority out in front of the camera like that hispanic guy in LA after the ElAl counter shooting.

Hmmmm, FBI intelligence analyst. I notice no denial in this article that she was working the sniper case.

Interesting point, but remember that the term "FBI employee" decribes thousands of people in the D.C. area.

Monica Lewinski was a Pentagon employee at one time . . .

What we need to do is bring back the good guys who left the bureau to get away from Jake Reno and her head maggot the Clintoon.

Then hire the good retired guys as consultants to find the sniper and other bad guys and at the same time weed out the diversity PC queens hired during Jake Reno's reign of terror!

Because this guy didn't sign up for anything but desk duty.

And he is incapable of keeping this guy in line.

Moose has been out of his element since he left the first grade.

Moose and his minnions are baffled.

They have no clue on how to track down this killer.

They hope the guys/girls go away and shoots somewhere else.

Retirement with full benefits is most important. The shooter gets out at night and knows the terrain.

Most cops don't like getting up a sweat and walking in the woods... it's hard work.

Better to pull over someone and get $275.00 for a speeding violation or a burnt-out tail light.

Some hunter will find these bastids before the police do.

Moose is just the tip of the iceberg in city, county, state and national groups sworn to protect us after obeying their new constitution, the PC Diversity one.

Add your comments to the reality of the PC police chiefs more concerned about pr and good Diversity mantras than good police work.

Many city police departments spend more time on how give out parking ticket violations than police work anymore. The income raised from parking ticket violations is necessary for the money flow of their city to stay afloat.

This guy probably won't be found until an informer turns him in. Somebody will wonder, "Why is my husband/son/neighbor behaving so strangely"? They'll call in a tip, and maybe the FBI will follow it up.

That's why it makes no sense to suppress the information they have until it's dead and cold. Chief Moose flies off the handle every time the press releases a useful bit of information like the bit about the Tarot card. But nothing has been released that might help the killer avoid being caught. And if people don't know what to look for, what hope is there of catching this guy?

Borrow law enforcement from every police dept. in the country to go thru the tips coming in

I agree with you 100% on this these little departments are too small to handle cases like this. Why aren't they asking departments in the cities like LA, NY and Dallas to help out? They all have worked on serial and or sniper killer crimes before and their insight can be invaluable. Moose is wasting precious time.

I agree with you, and don't think you are being too harsh.

The people working on this case (in all fairness, in the media's eye) seem like regular people... people who I would work with. I don't know about you, but I want people who are better prepared and better equipt then just 'normal' people working on a case like this.

I guess the paper sign proof-reader was off for Columbus Day.
