The Beltway Sniper During October 2, 2002 a series of murders started to happen around Washington D.C area, as well as in the Baltimore area. Five shootings attacks occurred in a fifteen hours period, which continued on for another three weeks. People were surrounded by fear and authorities did not have any clues of what or why these shootings were happening. Different messages and signs were left at the scene of the crime by the killer, but still nothing solid enough to have any suspects. The shootings took places in different establishments like, gas stations, restaurants, super markets, and even near schools. Victims were selected at random, and there was not a specific gender, age group, or even an ethnicity background that was being targeted. It was determined by investigators that the killings always occurred near highways in order for the shooter to have an easy access to an escape route. The weapon of choice used by D.C Sniper was a Bushmaster XM-15 semiautomatic .223 caliber rifle. There were not any witnesses that could offer any solid description or any information. The police set up hotlines so citizens could report any suspicious activity, as well as a mailbox to receive any tips via mail. However, not enough information was gathered ( FBI, 2007). As the time went on, the shooter engaged police in different ways, he would leave the tarot death card at the scene of the crime with written messages on them like: I am God, Do not tell the media about what is going on, and even a note requesting a sum of 10 million dollars or children were going to be targeted next. The huge investigation was led by the Montgomery County Police department along with the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). Usually right after it is determined by the leading police department that is in fact, the work of a serial killer the FBI is asked to intervene and to become the leading agency on the matter (FBI, 2007). While the shootings continued, it was reported by a witness

A story about the Irish Civil War.
The story takes place in Dublin around the beleaguered Four Courts in the middle of
The City where gunfire of heavy guns, machine guns and rifles break the silence of the
Night, spasmodically, like dogs barking on lone farms.
The long June twilight faded into night. Dublin lay enveloped in darkness but for the dim
Light of the moon that shone through fleecy clouds, casting pale light as of approaching
comparison of high eﬃciency high power boost
DC/DC converters for photovoltaic applications

War can destroy a man both in body and mind for the rest of his life. In "The Sniper," Liam O'Flaherty suggests the horror of war not only by presenting its physical dangers, but also by showing its psychological effects. We are left to wonder which has the longer lasting effectthe visible physical scars or the ones on the inside?
In this story the author shows how location plays a big part in how physically dangerous a war is. Gunshots heard throughout the city are a sign of how close the….

The story ends ironically when the IRA sniper realizes that the enemy he killed was his own brother. But there are larger ironies here: first, that all of the sniper’s Free State enemies are, in a sense, his brothers, for they had been comrades in arms fighting for the same cause; second, that all men are brothers as descendants of Adam and Eve. When they fight, they become Cain and Abel. No doubt, the IRA sniper now wonders about the identities of the turret gunner, the old woman, and the person….
