fifth, being a law enforcement officer i have my own opinions on how this entire ordeal should have been handled, but am a firm believer (having fallen prey to it myself) that those who are not directly involved in an investigation have NO BUSINESS second guessing the actions of those who are
sixth, the media is a bunch of morons and need to shut the heel up, well, ok, some of them should fry too

And what's with this "fry" stuff? I assume you mean death penalty, but since you're having so much trouble with sniper, I'm not sure. While the death penalty is a good deterrent for others, it's not much of a penalty. When you die, it's over. The ultimate punishment is to make the guys life so miserable that he commits suicide, then give him CPR so he can be miserable for a while longer. If you believe in God, judgement, Heaven and Hell, he'll get there soon enough. Me, I ain't taking chances on something I've never seen.
Maybe I'm just cynical. When I was about 12 years old, the US Government told me that those Russians shot down Gary Powers when his U2 weather plane accidentally drifted into Russian air space. Several days later it was divulged that the government had lied, it was a spy mission. I haven't trusted them since. I haven't condemned them, but I keep a close eye on them.
When I was very young, my mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, aunts, uncles and teachers told me about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and God. I believed. Over the next few years, I found out that at least three of the four were fantasy. So no, I'm not ready to put blind faith in the fourth handling John Allen Muhammad, we'll take care of it here. Besides even if the fourth is true, I'd think he'd expect us to handle our problems rather than depending on him to handle them for us. I quit looking to mommy and daddy to handle my problems years ago.
