Maybe EARONS and Zodiac's crimes and communication suddenly stopped because something happened. Perhaps they were incarcerated for a totally different crime.
yeah and there's deffo multiple serial killers active right now. i suspect Lazlo is one the way he is always on the move, makes jokes about serial killing and is always on about it.

he's taunting us, like a lot of them do. that could be his downfall.



jesus man, just go bald...it's not that bad. no need to shoot up a church over it.

What's the commonality and contrast?

2. Access to high power automatics, and surveillance.

During the hunt for Son of Sam they thought a .44 pistol was ridiculous for an individual to own.

I put it down to;
A) trend
B) Access to weaponry
C) convenience and laziness

In that order.
Instant gratification isn't it? No one is prepared to put in the hard miles anymore.

BBC now reporting that as the shooter left the church, a local got his rifle and shot at the shooter who dropped his weapon and drove off.
The Brinson gave chase & the shooter eventually crashed.
Police arenít yet saying how the shooter died - self-inflicted or whether It was a result of the vigilante shooting him.

You'd think this God dude could've intervened seeing as it went off in one of his churches

and in classic bizzaro logic, if that person wasn't armed, the shooter would have killed even more. Therefore, more guns for everyone please.

ďI think that mental health is a problem here. Based on preliminary reports, this was a very deranged individual with a lot of problems over a very long period of time.
a "very deranged individual" who had no problem walking into a shop and buying an assault weapon.

Never going to end is it? Seems to be getting much worse.

Seems it was merely down to him being a militant atheist according to people who knew him. Always ranting and raving about Christians.

That and a f***ing headcase too.

In the old days you had a strong sense of community and everyone believed in god.

America believed their war machine was doing right by the world, until Vietnam happened.

Jobs were plentiful and wage growth was a real thing. Nobody expected to become a millionaire, so not getting there didn't render you a failure in your own mind.

Outside of the criminal classes and inner cities, things were simpler and fairer. Too much 'freedom' has done for the American dream.

The strong sense of right and wrong and the social cohesion provided by traditional relationships and institutions has gone by the wayside as a result of the the laisez faire baby boomers' belief that they were passť and could be cast aside. While the fifties American dream of a nuclear family, steady employment, and a house with a white picket fence was constraining in so many ways the consequences of throwing aside such societal norms and the lessening of taboos have been far reaching.

The contraceptive pill has f***ed America.

That is one way of putting it, yeah.

Another is that in the "good old days" women were trapped in dead marriages and could be beaten and/or r*ped with virtual impunity, unmarried mothers were packed off to brutal "care homes", gay people were persecuted and driven underground, "no blacks, no dogs, no irish" signs were not only allowed but if anything encouraged, plays and television were openly censored.

That these things are no more is an unequivocally good thing. Even if new freedoms bring their own problems (as has always been the case)

Within his first two months as president, Donald Trump repealed without public display an Obama administration gun regulation that prevented certain individuals with mental health conditions from buying firearms.
