    the problem is NO ONE has seen this guy, or vehicle, or description, etc...I think it was simply a scare tactic by Joe and the media to scare this guy into not doing it anymore for fear of getting caught/shot...
    I agree. I also think that even a permit wouldn't help you with the one they call the "Serial Shooter". It sounds like he makes damn sure nobody else is in the area before just driving up and shooting them without much beating around the bush. How many of you would immediately draw your gun when someone stopped and asked directions or something similar even if you have heightened awareness? You might be ready to react with deadly force, but if someone gets their kicks out of killing (vs just robbing or mugging you like normal bad guys), I think you are going to be hard pressed to defend yourself very effectively. This guy seems to be very careful and focused on the task of killing without being detected....

    Not sure where this will go yet.
    Authorities arrested two men Friday in their investigation of a series of
    shootings that have terrorized people throughout the Phoenix area.

    In line with what everyone is saying, have the authorities even been able to determine at what range victims have been shot?

    Let me clarify my point. I think I was a little vague.

    My comments were directed only about the Baseline Killer, not the so-called Serial Shooter. I agree that in the case of the hit and run Serial Shooter, a gun on the victim will likely have limited effect. The attack is too quick and sometimes the victims are hit without ever seeing their attacker. On the small chance that an off duty officer sees an attack in progress, however, I'd rather he or she be armed.

    I still have faith that more guns and more police on the street equals general deterrence. But more importantly in the Baseline Killer case, more guns with plain clothes, trained personnel also creates more options and opportunity for capture.

    As some of you from Arizona may remember, the last Phoenix serial rapist, aka the A.M. Rapist, was caught when he parked his car right next to an undercover surveillance officer and started casing his next victim. This tells me that an attacker is apt to let his guard down and slip up when he does not see a marked police car or uniformed officer. The Baseline Killer has shown an arrogance at taking his victims in plain sight. Let's hope that arrogance does him in.

    I write this as I learn that two arrests have been made in the Serial Shooter case. Maybe they've found the right guys.

    Such details are not being released for investigative purposes.

    This just in -

    -- "These are the two monsters we’ve been hunting," said Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, after police announced the arrest of two suspects in the city’s "Serial Shooter" case.

    Nice. Glad they got 'em. The blurred face of the escorting officer makes me wonder if they didn't use undercover detectives for this. I'm happy they were able to get them without shots fired. I'm anxious to see what Sherrif Joe has in store for them.

    If I remember correctly they have been watching these guys for a while. That would mean somebody they know had knowledge of their doings and turned them in, this is only my take on the situation .
