    Former police officer named as serial killer

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on developments in a California serial killer case (all times local):
    11:30 a.m.
    A law enforcement official has identified a suspected California serial killer as 77-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo, a former police officer.
    The official confirmed the identity on condition of anonymity before an official news conference planned for noon Wednesday.
    Sacramento County jail records show DeAngelo was arrested overnight on suspicion of two counts of murder cited in a Ventura County warrant.
    The FBI says it has a team gathering evidence at a Sacramento- area home linked to DeAngelo.
    Authorities say a serial killer committed at least 12 homicides, 45 rapes and dozens of burglaries across the state in the 1970s and 1980s.
    The attacker became known as the “East Area Rapist.”

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    That title "Former Police Officer" while technically correct is designed to once again cast aspersions on our Men in Blue. This guy was a policeman in a small town for 4 years 40 plus years ago. Calling him a cop for what he did for one tenth of his life since 1972 can only have been done to once again attack the police departments as being corrupt.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Actually the knowledge he gained as a cop could of been part of how he got away with so much for so long. I don't believe that anyone hear thinks cops are more likely to be serial killers than are people in other professions.
