    Hard to believe it has been ten years already since the DC sniper attacks.

    I remember it well. One of the few times I have been afraid of business travel

    I had a business trip to DC and was staying at a Hilton in Rossyln VA. I arrived around 10PM and had to park quite a distance from the hotel lobby. As I walked in, I scanned the horizon and nearby trees. Upon reaching the lobby I laughed at how paranoid the attacks had made me.

    The next morning I read in the paper that they had attacked someone in a gas station two miles away

    I was driving around down there at the time. The biggest danger seemed to be the traffic.

    I have always considered the young prep in the case as a victim too

    I remember it being all over the news here, when the hunt was on for whoever was responsible. There was a lot of fear during that time, people afraid to step outside...

    Can't believe its been ten years already, though. Time has just flown.

    I think he was influenced majorly by his dad. If his dad wasn't around, the kid wouldn't have hurt anyone - although we cannot know that for sure, obviously.
