I agree with your assessment. I would add that what he might also do is pop up from time to time with a random cop shooting as part of his “asymmetric warfare” campaign.
I mentioned on another thread regarding the subject that he might also have multiple ID’s. It’s not that hard to get them in L.A., especially on Alvorado near MacArthur Park, and the quality is damned good. I used to live around there for awhile in the late 90s, and you get all set up for about $500.
He was a cop - I’m pretty sure he’d know about this angle.
The news in LA reported yesterday that he had multiple license plates with him, so he probably has multiple IDs as well. Who knows what he’s driving now, if he’s driving at all — but he does seem to be covering a lot of ground.
Yes, I’m sure he’s a long way from Big Bear now.
