ok, so am I the only Marylander...

  1. that's afraid of this serial killer thing?

    Another killing last night, its up to 10 people now, across three counties. All but one shot in broad daylight, doing things as mundane as crossing the street, waiting for a bus, standing in front of a store.

    I'm directly south of one of the counties, and I have to go into said county for clinical twice a week (evening clinical, at an urban hospital center, at that).

    I'm trying to be alert/calm/rational and stuff, but I'm really freaked out.

    I'm bothered. My kid and her family live in the state of Delaware only a few hours from Maryland, plus I have a lot of relatives living in Maryland. Don't know exactly where, but they always show up at the Family Reunions every summer. Why can't the cops find that idiot?

    Be safe, Rebecca :kiss

    Does anyone remember the TV show "Homicide:Life on the Streets" from a few years ago? It was on NBC, I think. Anyway there was this one episode where this nut case was going down the interstate randomly shooting people. In the show he started in New York or somewhere, and drove down to Baltimore. Gave me the creeps. something like he was a twin or something. They caught him in the end, but man that episode reminds me of what is currently going on. Scary stuff.

    I'm freaked.

    Last I heard, they had a description of a car. As if, if I were a mass murderer and being chased by the police, I would continue to drive the SAME car.

    They think its two people, one driving and one shooting. That's all they know so far.

    That Homicide show was filmed in Baltimore. I've been to the bar that was in the show, its in Fells point.

    Don't know.

    My BIL just called to ask if I'd heard about some kid that got shot at a school in PG county (uh, yep, that would be the county where I'm going to clinical tonight).

    Snipers in DC isn't such a huge deal. I don't mean that as flippantly as it sounds... its just that Montgomery Co is a high-end, white bread kind of neighborhood, and these serial shootings have raised the homicide rate by 25%. So the cops there are naturally more concerned than DC, which is often called the murder capitol of the nation. I don't know if that statement is a true one to make anymore, but it was at one time.

    So, I'm just trying to be as careful as possible without turning into a paranoid agoraphobic.
