Murdoc's theory 1: The Smith homicides


endoftheworld: By the time the EAR showed his weapon he was usually holding the female as a hostage and shield. But let's say the homeowner saw him coming through the window but not flashing his gun or a knife. Then, even though the home owner knew he was probably the Aug 12, 2018 18:34:57 GMT
woofytreats: Apparently, that was true of the Sac woman who had the .357 and had trained with it. She feared a murder rap. Some would not have felt that way and with the prevalence of guns b/c of this guy, that's why I say he's playing the odds as much as it being a Aug 12, 2018 18:38:29 GMT
endoftheworld: EAR, still it could be just an "innocent" "harmless" burglar. So there may be (have been) that moment of hesitation before firing at the center of the EAR's torso, which would have been a good thing and then this website would not exist. Aug 12, 2018 18:38:33 GMT
woofytreats: daunting task of intercepting him, etc. he retreated from some incidents when seen and forced his way in with he better be sure the ones he feels he can enter don't have deadly force or something he hasn't planned for. They don't have to Aug 12, 2018 18:43:05 GMT
woofytreats: derive his intentions as much as feel peril and imminent bodily harm or death. The woman on the phone calling police when he broke in had enough lead time that she could've got a gun. To me, it's less about their interpretation or fear and more about odds. Aug 12, 2018 18:46:22 GMT

winters: Is it just me, or do a lot of songs from that era deal with murder confessions? "I shot the Sheriff," "just killed a man" from Bohemian Rhapsody, etc. Probably saved the police some time when rounding up suspects :) Aug 15, 2018 3:30:59 GMT
endoftheworld: A lot of songs from EVERY era deal with murder confessions. For example, check out my rendition of "I've Been All Around this World" on the world-famous (sarc) youtube channel "don zuger". Aug 15, 2018 6:31:04 GMT
magnumforce73: : It's not just you. Back then, the artists were willing to show us the depths of the darkness of the human heart. Take Jagger doing "Sympathy" in 2018; the "Who Killed The Kennedys?" is cut from live performance. Aug 15, 2018 13:57:22 GMT
magnumforce73: : you won't hear that kind of depth in a Taylor Swift tune, or whomever is the current flavor of the month. Aug 15, 2018 13:58:12 GMT
david8: Winters, let us not forget "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" from Fab Four The Beatles in the 60s, a bobby tune relating to blunt instrument bashing murder Aug 15, 2018 14:19:29 GMT
endoftheworld: My point was there's a lot of different kinds of music, besides rock and roll, that have murder ballads. "Banks of the Ohio" is a famous one. Murder ballads were popular in 17th century Europe. Aug 15, 2018 17:55:30 GMT
