This is really starting to piss me off.

Ooh. Betcha those Congressmen aren't happy.

Sucks to be driving a white van right now - they said on WTOP they are pulling over EVERY ONE.

Hope they nail the bastard.
2002-10-11 10:40:48 AM  
What a farking looser this person is.
2002-10-11 10:40:50 AM  
Does anyone else feel like this seems way too much like a movie?

Creepy shiat.
2002-10-11 10:41:04 AM  
Last time I drove on I-95 it was on permanent stand-still...
2002-10-11 10:41:14 AM  
you don't need the police to make 95 a stand still. happens every day without them.
2002-10-11 10:41:37 AM  
I wonder if the Made-for-TV movie is in the works?
2002-10-11 10:41:40 AM  
prepare for commercial free saturation cable news coverage
2002-10-11 10:41:49 AM  
memo to self: dont' stop for gas in maryland/DC. un-farking-believable. this guy is clearly military trained. shiat, this could go on for weeks ... months ... years?
2002-10-11 10:42:09 AM  
hmm, next shooting = obvious tag
2002-10-11 10:42:17 AM  
Well, I'm never going back to Virginia now...

"He hates these cans!"
2002-10-11 10:42:30 AM  
If anyone wants me I'll be curled up in the fetal position until this blows over.
2002-10-11 10:43:09 AM  
What's this guy got against pumping gas?
2002-10-11 10:43:15 AM  
White minivan = felony stop + body cavity check
2002-10-11 10:43:16 AM  
I hope they catch "god" and give him the same treatment Jesus underwent.

You know, blindfold him, smack him around "who hit you 'god'? say my name!" Then the cat-o-nine-tails 'cross the back and buttocks, sharp thorns and beating. Oh, and of course being nailed to a large tree.

Something tells me this creep won't be coming back though.

The beltway is *ALWAYS* at a standstill in the morning. :)

I still think this is an advanced case of road rage. makes sense with the gas stations, nearby to highways, and why it's the the DC area, we're all such rude drivers.
2002-10-11 10:44:41 AM  
no offense, but whlie we have earthquakes and gangs, we don't got no sniper.

i want this guy cought....but i don't have time to worry about every little whack job on the planet.

i just gonna pray. that all i can do.
2002-10-11 10:44:47 AM  
I was a bit nervous getting gas this morning in VA i gotta say.
2002-10-11 10:45:24 AM  
We need to call in James Woods to solve this one
2002-10-11 10:45:26 AM  
goddamn.. I've been in that Exxon dozens of times. It's the one right across the street from Holiday Inn South.
2002-10-11 10:45:39 AM  
someone said in a post a while ago they thought he would go for a cop or armed authority figure. the people of fark should be profilers
2002-10-11 10:45:55 AM  
sick Ba$tard
Hope they catch him soon.

That's the biggest I could find. :\

Following this story and reading about the Taliban winning elections in Pakistan has me in my 'crawl under the covers for a couple of years' frame of mind again.
2002-10-11 10:46:04 AM  
Run OJ, run! Speaking of OJ, anyone here remember Baba Booey's crank call to Peter Jennings live on TV as helicopters hovered over OJ's house? Jennings fell for it hook line and sinker. I laughed my ass off.
2002-10-11 10:46:08 AM  
All his hits are centered around I-95. I predict

that will continue to be the case.
2002-10-11 10:46:41 AM  
i'm going to virginia for thanksgiving. if this asshat isn't found, i'm not leaving the house the whole time. f that.
2002-10-11 10:46:45 AM  
Right across the street from the Virginia State Police barracks-Fredericksburg too. Talk about balls. has coverage on it's webpage now.
2002-10-11 10:47:04 AM  
just for the record, he will start taking down people south of Washington, working his way around the capital...

expect something around the 495 shortly.
2002-10-11 10:47:15 AM  
Now would be a good time to have super powers.

Exxon!!!? He was looking for Navin Johnson.
2002-10-11 10:47:28 AM  
This guy's got a 5-star wanted level, that's for sure.
2002-10-11 10:47:40 AM  

I think we have a way to figure out if this guy's middle eastern or a home-grown whacko.

Did he let the people finish pumping gas?

If yes, then he wants more money to go to the middle east, so he's middle eastern.

If not, then he doesn't want any money to go to the middle east, so he's home-grown.

/ridiculous logic
2002-10-11 10:47:45 AM  
They need to be looking in the woods around the area. This person is likely using a ghilly suit or other such camoflage, and is probably wearing a utility company/public works uniform. Why suspect a uniformed individual? Hell, it might even be a cop. But I believe the profilers are right about this, they are a game sniper. This a55hat sniper is associating killing people with his superiority over authority. I hope citizens find him before the cops do and tear his Farking heart out and shove it up his cowardly a55... /rant
2002-10-11 10:47:48 AM  
Crap. Two of my sisters live in the DC area; the other lives in Richmond. My mom told me she drove by that Manassas Sunoco just yesterday (before the shooting).
2002-10-11 10:47:58 AM  

"this guy is clearly military trained."

I don't think so. I think he's probably a militia type nutbag, but not ex-military.
2002-10-11 10:48:20 AM  
Please: lol :)
2002-10-11 10:48:23 AM  
You gotta hate being the top cop on this case.
2002-10-11 10:48:34 AM  
Police have I-95 and the Beltway at a near stand-still

Have they ever tried to drive on the Beltway? Its always at a standstill.
2002-10-11 10:48:51 AM  
"Johnson said whoever killed Meyers is "a person that has no heart, no love, no concern - but most of all, no love in his heart.""

Stop the presses.
2002-10-11 10:49:32 AM  
Stahi.. that Exxon is farther down the road from the State Police Barracks.. I think. If Ewell road is where I think it is.
2002-10-11 10:49:32 AM  
*wonders if will write another insightful piece*
2002-10-11 10:49:33 AM  
The most arrogant bastards on the planet:

The world revolves around us!
2002-10-11 10:49:33 AM  
Route 1 and I-95 are pretty much the only way this guy could go North quickly after the shooting, and it seems like he travels along I-95. If they managed to cut it off early enough, they might just get him this time.
2002-10-11 10:50:00 AM  
Dannyspaz: You know too much. I just forwarded your info to the FBI. Expect a phone call, and get out the lube.
2002-10-11 10:50:03 AM  
They are saying it is a Astro van with ladder racks...
