One Month

I never thought that I'd be writing that it's been one month since two troopers were shot outside the Blooming Grove barracks, and the killer is still on the loose.

Above, the sea of police cars at a staging area-- Barrett Elementary, near Canadensis.

State Police say they believe the alleged killer, Eric Frein, is trapped in a five mile area of forest near the Monroe-Pike county line.  There have been four supposed sightings in the last week.

Others remain skeptical, believing he's fled the area.

Some aspects of the search have been troubling, leading to a lot of second guessing.  I'd love to have the opportunity to ask some questions when all of this comes to an end.

Now, the cost.  We've heard the complaints.  I'm sure the final numbers will be absolutely staggering.  But, what is the cost of a human life?  What is the cost of justice?  Do you want to tell a widow and two father-less children that you don't want to spend the money to find a killer?

A lot of people are anxious to see the way this tragic movie comes to an end.
