So now it
seems the DC snipers were responsible for two shootings
in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. That's
added to the other non-DC shootings they pulled off in Washington State and Alabama. A rather different picture starts too emerge. These guys were icing people all over the place. It was only when they got to DC that anyone realized what was going on. More specifically, it was only when they shot five people in a matter of hours on (I believe it was) October 3rd that anyone really realized there was a problem. Could that have been the reason why they hit so many people on that one day? You can almost see these guys sitting around the sniper den one evening, knocking back a beer, and saying: What does a guy gotta do in this country to get some cred as a serial killer?
In all seriousness, random gun killings may just have been too common a matter to arouse that much suspicion, until these two decided to pump up the volume one day in early October.
