In this morning’s New York Times and probably every other newspaper in America is the story that Dennis Rader has pleaded guilty to ten counts of murder and has recounted to the court in a matter-of-fact way how he killed each victim.
He carried a ‘hit kit’ of robe, tape and other stuff in his car, he staked out prospects (called ‘projects’) and had several in the works at any one time. He described comforting the crying babies of one woman he killed.
Sick, sick puppy. The only bright spot in all of this is the look it gives us into the mind of a serial killer. Perhaps this information will better help us protect ourselves.
No way for me to start a day. Harumph!
