Sheriff's Office Seeks Information on Alleged Serial Killer

Not one reporter has asked the jurisdictions involved how and why this maniac was allowed to operate all over California, raping and killing for so many years and why he was only designated as a serial rapist/killer in 2000, 18 years after his final killing!
The entire law enforcement community didn't have a clue, even though individual officers warned decades before it was officially determined, that this guy might be a serial killer. The law enforcement system didn't want to hear it at the time. Now those officers are saying that they said something, but no one would listen!
He used the same seaman's knots in each crime, but the different jurisdictions involved had no interaction with each other to use this information. The Santa Barbara Sheriffs had no contact with the Ventura Sheriffs and Orange County's sheriffs. No one had contact with sister agencies! There is still not a state clearing house agency for this type of information to be gathered and analyzed! Ted Bundy must be smiling again, even in death!

The terrible police system we have in place is dysfunctional and DeAngelo knew this when he committed his crimes. All he had to do was keep moving and killing in another jurisdiction. Maybe the word should be "permitted" instead of allowed, but this is not the last serial killer that we will hear about. There are 25-50 serial killers operating in our country today, according to the FBI. Our policing system is made for serial criminals and it did indeed "allow" him to murder and rape and not get caught for over 40 years.
