A cold-blooded man does not allow his emotions to cloud his judgement. He’s got a plan, he’s got it figured out. How to get in, how to get out, what he needs.
Like a machine or a computer, he follows the procedure to the letter, because he understands that his precautions are his best defense after the action. His adherance to the rules is what guarantees his freedom.
The system wants men who make mistakes. Those mistakes are what ……get you caught. The authorities are just incidental.
As great as Chris Dorner was, he made mistakes. Those mistakes are what killed him.
Anytime a hostage is taken, he must be terminated when his usefulness is over. When on the road, obey traffic laws to the letter. Swim in the sea of people; do not retreat to an isolated rural area when on the run. Avoid familiar people and places. Don’t stand out, don’t be important. These are just a few of the rules.
The fire of emotion provides the stimulus to action and to train. Cold logic to train and act sucessfully. One needs both abilities in quantity, tremendous postive emotion to give the desire to act, tremendous cold-blooded and frankness in calculation. It is an unbeatable combination.
The Zodiac was never caught. It wasn’t luck.
