Why did he terrorize the couple that he did by holding them hostage? Why did he even remain in the L.A. area? I can say by experience and knowledge,
he could have been in Albuqueque in 10 hours. He could have been eating breakfast in Missouri within 24 hours. (with a nap in there somwhere too!).
Why did he murder the people he did?
I have no idea why a killer does what they do. I'd be one myself, I fear, if I could really answer that in a true sense. Scary thoughts down that
path and understanding can be taken too far, IMO.. lol
In this case? I'm sure they did spook him a bit....but his decisions following first contact were his to make and he made them. He'd been a cop...he
knew police tactics and he knew, better than most, how far they'd go when facing a no-win situation. If taking him alive meant more cops would die?
The attempts to take him alive would simply stop....and they did. Clearly. He had to have known all that too. After all, he was one himself and was a
part of the training as well as real world situations where HE helped make those very decisions on other people.
