As If Cars Werent Enough of A Danger....

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061224/...erial_killings

Police say seven people were killed and 17 wounded in the random attacks across the area dating to May 2005, which mostly came as the victims walked or bicycled alone late at night or in the early morning.

This is the type of "person" that capital punishment is designed for.
There is no hope to rehabilitate this POS, and he should be strapped to the gurney 'toot sweet'.

We have the death penalty, and he should be charged with a terror crime. Because he terrorized the whole city.

Ehh... I don't like the terms "terror" or "hate" crimes.
The way I see it, all violent crime is terrorizing and hateful and therefor there shouldn't be a distinction.

What we need is to clean out the prisons of non-violent drug users, and then use the space to gather all the violent thugs and go draconian on their asses.

You should have tried riding your bicycle for the weeks they were RVing. I think the term alone admits their techinque of terror.


Yea the line is thin, but when you effect a whole valley of 3 million people I call it terror. Sure violent crime is terrorizing but the effects are not often wide reaching or as random which effect an entire population of a valley.

Bet they would have thought twice if they didn't have the safety of a car in which to run away.

It's nice to hear about an ordinary guy like Ron Horton doing such a brave thing.
