The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

More Duncan

Accourding to police reports Duncan walked into a Fargo Walmart April 13th and bought night vision goggles (later used in stalking and learning the lay out of the Groene home before his night invasion into it) two days before renting a car in the Minneapolis area and disappearing only to show up again at the Denny in Coeur d'Alene July 2 with Shasta. A month before releasing himself into his cold blooded grisly crime spree that would shock the nation, and leave a trail of victims.

One has to wonder what charms this man could have ever possessed in orfer to find the loyal followers who continuely stood by as he acknowleged the crimes he so heinously commited doing his life. A doctor (Richard Wacksman), a business man (Joe Crary), a married woman( currenly unnamed). Or what could have possibly been going through the mind of the judge (Thomas Schroeder)who let him roam freely on $15,000 bail. Wacksman is known to have given $6500 for lawyer fees to Duncan, Crary $15000 to cover a bad check written by Duncan for his bail, and Schroeder- well he may just go down in history as releasing one of todays worst nightmares onto the public. In all of this, the one we expect to hold to the highest degree of insight would be a judge. That's their would deal... they judge things, people, cases etc. But, what avout Duncan? The insight gathered from his blog indicates that this was a well planned event. His ramblings of demons and "getting back at society" should hold a clue into the devient thoughts he expressed so very freely. But what is more concerning is the things he didn't say. At one point Joseph Duncan admits to advenging what he felt was the injustice done to him by society "All those years I dreamed of getting out...And getting even. Instead, I got out and I got even, but did not get caught. So, I got even again, and again did not get caught. So, I figured, well, I got even twice (actually more, but that's here nor there)", so what is there that we don't know yet? What other monsterous acts of gross anomalistic behavior has Duncan commited? In truth, we may never fully know the nature of the beast who blogged the perverse perception of how wronged HE was by the world.
