So now the sniper is threatening children. This is one of those terrifying moments when the disconnect between reality and the world as depicted on television shows is revealed in all its awful glory. It's hard, being spoiled on shows like Millennium and Profiler and CSI, to look on the hunt for this terrible killer and not be utterly incredulous at the apparent lack of any idea of who this person is on the part of the police. He has killed all of these people and still has not committed that "one big mistake" that we're told all criminals eventually make. I still believe that he will make such a blunder, if he keeps killing; but that in itself is the terrible part. We can only catch him if he keeps killing.
