Ten Murder Charges For BTK Killer

So they charged Dennis Rader with 10 murder charges as the BTK killer in Kansas today.

I was listening to NPR this morning and their coverage of the BTK case. What struck me was (and I’m paraphrasing here) “Rader was a compliance officer for Park City, just outside of Wichita. He routinely cited his neighbors for letting their grass grow too long, their dogs running loose, or burning trash in town.” Damn – sounds like BTK would have a field day on Guam. My neighbor’s dog run rampant over the neighborhood, he burns his trash – including diapers – downwind of my house, and the house on the corner has grass almost three feet tall.
