Hmmmm....the media whores are making this a difficult story to follow.

Ahhhh, the days of Shark Attacks and Fat America....
 
2002-10-21 08:55:42 AM
i would have thought that the police would have a more private way of contacting the sniper instead of making a statement at a press conference. oh well

/back to sleep
 
2002-10-21 08:57:17 AM
I am confused. Why does he have to call them? He left the number. Call him.
 
2002-10-21 08:58:03 AM
call me at the number i give you.

there's a good way to never get laid.
 
2002-10-21 08:58:41 AM
wait just a second,

I'll call you at the number i give you...
 
2002-10-21 08:59:15 AM
Well... I seriously hope this guy just sealed his death warrant. Regardless of where or what that phone # is, he WILL be found if he's anywhere near it. Frankly, I'm starting to think that this is just another red herring.
 
2002-10-21 08:59:18 AM
hold on....

call me at the number you gave me

yeah, that's it!
 
2002-10-21 08:59:31 AM
the Montgomery County Police Chief made an appeal Sunday night for the shooter to "call us at the number you provided."

rofl
- like he/she is gonna turn up and get busted.
 
2002-10-21 08:59:43 AM
They are just trying to get him to call them so they can trace his number, but this guy is smart, I HIGHLY doubt he would do something that stupid...
 
2002-10-21 09:00:50 AM
The police are getting quite desperate in this, and like another Farker said in a previous thread, all this guy has to do is stop now and there is almost NO way he would get caught. Freaky, eh?

During that surgery last night, the man who was shot in the abdomen, went back into the operating room so doctors could re-connect his stomach and intestines, hospital spokeswoman Pam Lepley said.

Ouch.

 
2002-10-21 09:01:24 AM
He / She probably staked out a payphone for him to place a call to police AT - or, alternatively, maybe he left them a nice pre-paid cel phone sitting there in the grass - This guy / girl is really good at farking with the police.
 
2002-10-21 09:01:26 AM
hmm.. Is he really that stupid? I think not...
 
2002-10-21 09:01:34 AM
Sure, because he'd give them a phone number without taking simple precautions to ensure he can't be traced, or at least make the location the phone is in difficult to get to at short notice. Sure.
 
2002-10-21 09:01:52 AM
I wonder if he used a sharpie to write the note?
 
2002-10-21 09:02:37 AM
this is off topic sorta; well i was pushing carts today at work(grocery store) and this really farking hot freshman i know comes up to me and shes like "do you have a cell phone" and i was like "yeah" "ok, give me your number tomarrow" now what the fark is that all about.

p.s. she has the nicest ass ive ever seen.
 
2002-10-21 09:03:22 AM
Or did his note include the police phone number or 911 or something?
 
2002-10-21 09:03:56 AM
Oh no! You forgot to use the word "asshat"! What is this world coming to? Next thing you know - France won't surrender! Hilarity won't ensue!!
 
2002-10-21 09:04:01 AM
"Former FBI profiler Clinton Van Zandt said Saturday's shooting, if related, could show the killer's approach is changing in response to law enforcement tactics...

who the hell cares? he's still killing people right?


Sniper leaves lengthy message for police after latest shooting

sounds like a job for The Smoking Gun

"They may know for sure today, after doctors finally recovered the bullet from the wounded man last nite in a second round of surgery."

Good lord, they actually wrote `NITE'.

I'd be a little suspicious (it's just my nature)
Why did she specify "Cell-phone"?
Why didn't she just ask for your number?
 
2002-10-21 09:05:08 AM
Sounds like the sniper left the investigators one of their numbers. Or a private police number that no one should know. Or perhaps he wants them to activate a phone in that number. Or probably a payphone in the area that he will call out of their jurisdiction from. It's not the obvious stupid ideas that are floating around.
 
2002-10-21 09:05:33 AM
Oh...back on topic - The sniper is an asshat!
 
2002-10-21 09:06:06 AM
If anyone actually thinks that this phone HASN'T already been located, please stop being a typical sheep and wake up to reality. Even if it's a cellular, I'd bet $100 that the cops have already contacted the company and have triangulation set up on it.
 
2002-10-21 09:06:08 AM
or he left them the lyrics to "867-5309"
 
2002-10-21 09:06:25 AM
Maybe your just a step above the rest of us, Tensionfilter
 
2002-10-21 09:06:50 AM
Who's to say this isn't some sick prank from some prick who was around that restaurant?

thats how thinks work in alaska, its always cell phone, im not sure whats up, whenever i see her in the store she always demands a hug and shiat.

anyway that makes the total number of girls to ask me for my number to date: 7. 6 of which were 2 years or more younger than me.
 
2002-10-21 09:07:53 AM
Some guy is right now desperately searching for the number he got at the bar a few days ago!

Were you wearing your white suit at the time? The Samuel Clemmens look really turns some chicks on.

Significant text... More tarot cards... totally screwing with the cops. It's like It's like Zodiac:The Next Generation

One to many it's likes there :) - My bad.
 
2002-10-21 09:09:16 AM
It's no good mentioning triangulation and calling people sheep if you don't have a clue what you're talking about, Lord_Kuri.
 
2002-10-21 09:09:27 AM
From what I got out of the story, he left them a pay phone number or some public phone number.

What I read into the story was that he/she is going to snipe their asses when they go to pick up the phone.
 
2002-10-21 09:10:26 AM
mayo: nope, i am however very clemens like in that im inventive and witty.


i hear the zodiac guys iq was like 200 or something.

LordOfTheBlings:

Did't really mean to refer to anyone here, I think.
 
2002-10-21 09:11:36 AM
Yay for someone other than me linking to my station!

If you're in the Baltimore metro area, listen to Dave Durian and the Morning Team, or be punished.

Miles the producer says so.

I'm guessing the phone number was for a payphone or something. The police found the note, checked out the phone, then found nothing. They are assuming the sniper wants to talk to them at that number. Wherever the phone is, I'm sure the police got the phone company to re-route that number to a police station, so the cops won't be where the sniper thinks they are. Unless he is smart.

Bah who cares. Fukcer better not come to Atlanta.

he obviously wants to get caught, he's just stringing them along for a while. There needs to be a name to go down in history, If he wanted to he could simply dissappear with out a trace, and the cops would never find him.
 
2002-10-21 09:13:19 AM
oh god oh god oh god. i forgot that vice city came out today!!! hell yeah. oh hell yeah.
 
2002-10-21 09:13:40 AM
 
2002-10-21 09:13:55 AM
sorry about that
 
2002-10-21 09:14:32 AM
umm... ok... I'm not really sure how in the hell I "don't have a clue what I'm talking about" seeing as how triangulation is simply the predecessor to the A-GPS systems that the FCC is mandating for "emergency purposes"

and besides.... read my post again.... the only way I'm calling someone a sheep is if the DON'T think that the cops have already located this #. If you think that they haven't, then IMO, you're a sheep. If you think they have, then what is your farking problem, hmm?

Tosh:

I noticed that too and it made me more angry and frustrated than the actual story. I men, these people are REPORTERS! Shouldn't they be well educated in spelling?

Or is this one of those "England" things where "center" is spelled "centre" and "favorite" is "favourite" ??
 
2002-10-21 09:17:12 AM
JOn's post should end the confusion in regards to the phone number he left:

I'm guessing the phone number was for a payphone or something. The police found the note, checked out the phone, then found nothing. They are assuming the sniper wants to talk to them at that number. Wherever the phone is, I'm sure the police got the phone company to re-route that number to a police station, so the cops won't be where the sniper thinks they are. Unless he is smart.

Thanks, JOn

Triangulation won't work unless (a) the phone is turned on, and (b) it's a cell phone.

Now, unless this guy is terminally retarded (and give he's killed all these people and injured a couple too, that's probably unlikely) he'll be smart enough to take some very basic precautions to avoid being traced. It's not hard, it just takes a few minutes of forethought. What, did you think he was going to kill a bunch of people and then just sit back and wait for the cops to come get him, perhaps giving them a few direct farking pointers to lead them to him?

Talk about thinking like a sheep..
