I wonder if he'll admit to anything that's not on the list of recognized crimes

"Former police officer."

And they wonder why we look at them all askance.

I watched the first of episode of I'll Be Gone in the Dark last night. So far, it's been a really good documentary.

It's really a shame Patton Oswalt's wife passed away before they found him.

If nothing else ever comes of this, I hope they can change rape to have the statue of limitations removed.

The Mercy Seat is waiting and I hope they forget to wet your sponge.

The podcast Man in the Window was really good too.

This is also the reason why I will never do a 23 and me or anything like that.

Yet another 'hero' in blue, er, killer cop...
 
2020-06-29 1:12:42 PM  
He had a difficult job.
 
2020-06-29 1:12:52 PM  
I watched some documentary on this killer early in the quarantine and I remember thinking that it had to be a cop.... so, not surprised, but very surprised that if *I* could suspect a cop based on the access, and patterns of his rapes and killings... what the hell? The damned cops always look the other way when "one of our own" is involved... JEEBIS!

Man, that's setting yourself up to fail.  Calling yourself "The Golden State Killer".  Population of California is almost 40 million.

His fate is sealed for being a cholo already. He had some pretty young victims... besides, rapists are next to the bottom rung of the social ladder in prison, from what I have read.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: It's really a shame Patton Oswalt's wife passed away before they found him.


Then again, it really shows what an awesome and large hearted person Patton Oswalt is for seeing his wife's work through to completion after her passing

Definitely looking forward to the doc on HBO

I wonder why the police union out there isn't defending him.

Maybe his victims jay walked or something? There just has to be more to this story.

Read the headline as "Golden State Warriors Joseph DeAngelo" and wondered who that was. Warriors brought in a lot of unknown players last year due to injuries so figured it was one of them.

This case is exactly the reason WHY I joined 23andme.  If I have a rapist or murderer in my family tree, the law can have them.

I lived in the Sacramento region during his terror spree. Every single woman in town was scared. Before this asshole showed up Sacramento was absurdly one of those places where no one locked their doors ( lots of Midwestern transplants here ) and left their windows open at night. He changed all of that with a lot of help from our local TV news who were more than happy to share grisly details all day and night. Constant fear, constant terror for years. I hope they put this guy in general population immediately. Him being a cop and a rapist is going to make him a target for some inmate justice.

Why are there folks out there who want to close off public DNA databases to investigators?

Unless someone takes him down in prison, even if he WERE to receive a death penalty, at 74 years
old, he will be long dead before liberal California gets anywhere close to executing him, not that
they would anyway.  :(

It is good that justice was served.  The problem is he doesn't seem to understand what he did.  He was guided in all his pleas by his lawyer.  It doesn't appear he has the mental capacity to suffer.

To all the people in this thread: do you not see the connection between your thirst for revenge and the police state we live in? If you agree with the BLM movement and defunding the police, but still want extreme punitive punishment for criminals without the possibility of rehabilitation or prevention, then you have a lot of soul searching to do. You can't have it both ways.

When my dad was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia I did the 23 and me thing. It didn't really tell me much for $200. But then I found promethease and for $5 using the raw data from 23 and me it told me almost too much. I don't have risk of early onset dementia just alzheimer's late in life. nsaids makes my stomach bleed and I have a genetic immunity to the norovirus.

BTW the killer was caught using GEDmatch.

Becuase it's child's play to synthesize DNA from a sample and contaminate the already obtained evidence. A match is a slam dunk to simplistic juries.

When they interviewed the dude who was a sheriff investigating the case, you could see him sort of deflate when he started explaining his department's utter failure to protect the women in his community.

Didn't feel bad for the guy, since he was an utter farking failure and will die knowing he didn't stop women and girls from being raped because of politics. (Did feel bad for the ladies, especially the one who can't play piano anymore because she was raped at age 15 after he snuck up on her when she was playing.)

No real bites. My intent isn't to troll though. The reason why we as a society are in the mess we're in is precisely because we project the revenge mentality fueled by rare, exceptional cases like this one onto poor people and minorities whose crimes are more minor, and often driven by economical forces. Sex crimes is a more special category, but the same sort of cognitive dissonance applies there as well. And then we're all surprised pikachu when cops and courts do bad things in the name of justice and protection.

Basically, can people please stop it with the "I hope this person experiences all the worst stuff I can think of" comments. It's stupidly unhelpful.

Precisely.

Protections for the accused are there precisely because not having them resulted in travesties of justice.  They don't protect criminals, they protect you and I.

You mean chomo.

A cholo is a Mexican stereotype (think bandana wrapped around the forehead gangster looking guys from SoCal).

I never read a reason for why this guy was no longer a cop.

He must have been forced to either quite and at some point police departments would not hire him.

There must be a reason, and I suspect the police knew he was a killer years ago and told him quite the police department or they would send him to jail.

White knighting a serial rapist and mass murderer likely won't get you very far. Justice is being served, not revenge.

I personally hope this evil asshole experiences at least 1/10th the pain, suffering, and horror he inflicted on others.
