    BELTWAY LOVERS:MAINSTREAM MEDIA'S DIRTY SECRETBy: Daniel SargisLove of Life…If the authorities are unable to obtain a murder conviction on suspected teen sniper, John Lee Malvo, there is always Plan B. Maryland state law states that a person is guilty of a sexual offense in the third degree if the person engages in sexual contact with another person who is mentally defective (§ 464B, {2}). After all, John Allen Muhammad is certainly a mentally defective person (as opposed to insane which he will undoubtedly plead). Oh, that’s right, nobody is saying or reporting that 42-year-old suspected sniper John Allen Muhammad...

  • How To Catch the Sniper; Any Ideas?

    10/23/2002 8:54:26 AM PDT · by GulliverSwift · 106 replies · 275+ views
    I'm sick of the police screwing around and twiddling their thumbs while this coward drives around and shoots people. Any ideas from those among FR who know something about military/police about how to catch him? I have an idea. Investigators first need to set up an imaginary crime scene, behind a bumch of trees. Then they should see how long it takes to drive away on the minor roads, the kind the sniper is probably using. By testing how long it will take and how far the car can in that amount of time, they can determine how far away...

    AN EVIL HAS DESCENDED ON WASHINGTON -- BUT IT CAN BE CAST OFF IN NAME OF JESUSConcerning the D.C. sniper, it's time for us to take more direct spiritual action. Obviously, a darkness has befallen that area -- a demonic darkness -- and we must all pray to cast away this specific evil in the Name of Jesus.Below we are reprinting a powerful exorcism prayer. It would be useful in this case -- and is always useful, especially in the current times, and especially at this time of Halloween. Whether or not we are dealing with a lone gunman or...

    Reports from CNN, Washington Post,etc. indicate police have received an extortionate demand : "Pay me, or I'll kill again." In my opinion, this demand is the work of a "third party",who is exploiting the sniper hysteria, and hopes to get a big payday out of it. This sort of thing has happened many times in the past, and I'm sure the police are well aware of it; however, another thought has occurred. The two men arrested may have been paid to make themselves conspicuous in a recently purchased vehicle-selected for its resemblance to the "sniper van".They lingered at a pay...

Even at the age of 47 - after a battle with cancer and a tense year of post-terrorist life in the nation's capital - Linda Franklin seemed to be blessed with eternal youth.

    By Paul Sperry © 2002 WASHINGTON -- Several witnesses to the Beltway sniper shootings over the past two weeks have described suspects resembling Middle-Eastern men, but authorities have played down the Islamic terrorism angle to avoid mass "panic" in the area, an ATF official told WorldNetDaily. "That angle is actually being looked at, and the FBI has the lead on it," said the official, who is working with the sniper-murders task force based in Maryland's Montgomery County, where the first five shootings took place. "None of this has been overlooked. There's an awful lot that they're not allowing out,"...

    Who is doing these random 'snipings' in and around our nation's capital? The media is of course focusing on a 'Son of Sam' type solo, deranged nutball. And maybe they are right. FBI profilers have become frequent TV Talking Heads opining on who this shooter is. Yet lost in the clutter is the report that "two men" were seen driving away from the latest gas station murder in Manassas, Va. Two men changes this crime – radically. Two men means a conspiracy – and it also means planning, talking, debating and some sort of direction and chain of command. Now,...

I propose we make up our own profile, based on what we know , and I invite all Freepers , who think they have a useful idea to contribute, to add their thoughts to this post.

    Dissent greets beltway decisionTransportation chief says 'no choice' but Orange RouteBy Hayes Hickman, News-Sentinel staff writerAugust 1, 2002Boos, insults and one state legislator's near-tussle with state troopers interrupted Transportation Commissioner Bruce Saltsman as he announced plans to build the Knoxville Beltway along the controversial Orange Route. The words had barely left Saltsman's mouth before the shouting began at Wednesday's press conference - particularly from state Rep. H.E. Bittle, who has vehemently opposed the Orange Route. The route would come directly through Bittle's own community in West Knox County's Hardin Valley, and the legislator confronted Saltsman on an alleged promise to...

    <p>July 17 — As a boy, summering with his extended family in Kennebunkport, Maine, George W. Bush was Boss Cousin: the oldest in a swarm of his own brothers (and sister) and the sons and daughters of his aunts and uncles. They played games all day, from tag to tennis to basketball. George, one of the players told me years later, very much liked to win—and, as oldest siblings always do, wrote the rules (or rewrote) them to guarantee it.</p>
