[b]"We implore him to surrender, stop this madness."[/b] From:[url=http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2002-10-05-dc-on-alert_x.htm]D.C. on alert as sniper roams free[/url]. What will this accomplish other than to make the police look like sniveling, impotent Nancies begging the badman to [i]PLEASE[/i] stop?

C'mon, he got a headline, didn't he?

It will make the general populace feel better that the bad persons are being 'admonished' and shows that the police are actively doing something. The bad persons are probably on their way to turn themselves in after hearing this. On a positive note, the Chief isn't running around yelling that the sky is falling or feeding a media frenzy.

Remember the DC area has no guns. I Can't see how so many could be shot and there are no witnesses. All were shot with a single shot? Obviously there is someone out there with a screw loose. I pray that the perp screws up and gets caught soon.

Abolutely nothing. Entirely normal to not get anywhere when there appear to be no leads. However, for this, he should be fired.
