Andrew Dalzell: It was only a matter of time

It is bad policing to chase suspects, but one of the reasons so many of us insisted police check out Andrew Dalzell for the murders of Stephanie Bennett and Irina "Ira" Yarmolenko was that we were all so sure he was an habitual offender, and if he killed Debbie Key then social deviance would lead him to offend again.

That is the reason it is no surprise to learn of his arrest last week in an underage sex sting. Dalzell's behavior fits the pattern of a serial offender, and his age is right for those offenses to accelerate. That he is now behind bars brings a temporary sense of relief.

Thank you, John -
for having the courage to say what I've been afraid to say.

I see this as a minor victory.
It's a baby step, but a step in the right direction.
With a little hope, this could lead to something closer to major.

It has been suggested that if Dalzell were tried in another county, the results may not be the same. We now have the opportunity to see an example.

Buncombe County Sherrif's Dept. claims they did not know he was a suspect in another crime when they put the sting on him. There are those, however, who question this claim, saying that Dalzell must have been targeted. I say the timing of it (the day after the Yarmolenko trial) appears rather coincidental.

Can I get some feedback on this, please?
Thank you.
