Based on the conversation on last Saturday's show, I decided to create this thread to open up some discussion on the DC Sniper case and examine
The first shot in the DC area rang out on October 2, 2002 into the window of a Micheal's Craft Store in Aspen Hill, Maryland. No one was injured and
would have not raised any thoughts or concerns except about an hour later in Glenmont, MD James Martin was shot and killed in the parking lot of a
Shoppers Food Warehouse grocery store.
The next morning of October 3, 2002 four more were shot and killed between 7:40 am and 10:00 am, followed by one more that night in DC at 9:15 pm. At
this time, it was determined that was the actions of a sniper.
The attacks continued until October 22, 2002 with much media attention, misleading information and public reaction of fear. On October 24 John Allen
Muhammad, and Lee Boyd Malvo were found sleeping in their car, a blue 1990 Chevrolet Caprice, at a rest stop off of Interstate 70 near Myersville,
Maryland and arrested. Ron Lantz noticed the car and blocked off the exit to the rest area with his semi and called police.
Now here is where the case becomes interesting. The Chevy Caprice was once used as an undercover police car in Bordentown, New Jersey. It had been
stopped for a minor traffic violation on October 3 and again police in Baltimore had investigated the car on October 8, because had New Jersey plates
and the man sleeping inside had a DC driver's license. But with all attention placed on "the white van", the car was never searched and the
occupants not extensively questioned.
The motive that the public was lead to believe was that the intened target was Muhammad's ex-wife. That the other murders were a cover up. However
Malvo has stated in court that the murders were part of a three phase plan. Phase one was to be 6 murders a day for 30 days in the DC area. Phase two
was to relocate to Baltimore, MD and begin specific targeting of shooting a pregnat woman in the stomach and killing a police officer. Then, at the
officer's funeral, they were to create several improvised explosive devices complete with shrapnel. These explosives were intended to kill a large
number of police, since many police would attend another officer's funeral. Sound familiar to the story on the Hutaree militia? Phase three was
to gather young males for training in Canada from various YMCA's along the way to become sniper teams like Muhammad and Malvo across the US in
Muhammad was executed by lethal injection on November 10, 2009. The execution procedure began at 9:06 p.m., he was pronounced dead five minutes
later at 9:11 pm.
