Bradley Stone is on the lam, probably in Pennsylvania. He is accused of murdering six people, including his ex-wife and her family.
There is one suspected sighting by a man out walking his dog. NBC Philadelphia reports:
Police are investigating whether a man, who fit Stone's description, was involved in a carjacking in Doylestown late Monday. He had a knife when he approached a resident around 7 p.m. on the 100 block of Commons Way in Doylestown Township and demanded his car keys, according to investigators.The victim, who was legally armed, fired multiple rounds at the suspect, who ran into nearby woods, police said. Police, including K-9 units, searched the area, but they did not locate anyone.Read about this here.
And, then there's this:
Remember the horrors of the Westgate Mall attack in Kenya, proving that shopping malls are fortresses for terrorists? It certainly gave Interpol (International Police) reason to ponder this:
Mindful of the recent terrorist attack at the Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said that armed citizens in open societies need to be able to defend themselves and others against terrorist attacks. You can read this here.
Now turn to the Chocolate Café in Sydney, Australia, where yesterday one lone gunman held captive at least 17 others.
What if one of those citizens had been packing? Could things have been different?
What if the gunman had reason to suspect at the beginning of his insane plan that someone in that shop might have been packing? Would it have given him pause?
What if the man in Pennsylvania walking his dog had not had his gun? Would he have lost more than his car keys and car?
Would this person, if it is a fugitive as desperate as Stone must be, have killed a witness?
Just thinking out loud…
And, yes, this may take it a bit far, but I could not resist.
Sorry to return on such a somber note. Call me a right-winged nut case for even thinking this. I won’t mind. It’s what is on my mind today.
Just askin’ the question.
POST SCRIPT - News says the fugitive has been found dead--suicide. Was a PTSD veteran. Sad.
