Crazy Silver Springs, MD shooting, related to Cyberwings/Shawn J White?


Shawn J White would logon from a verizon dsl in Silver Springs, MD.

Plenty of people looking for him, plenty of threats were made against him on IRC. None of the pictures I saw of the scene showed an overly obese person covered up, but he's wronged a lot of people. Wouldn't be surprised if one of Shawn's crazies broke.

Yeah, it's true. I sat up fast to listen closer to the TV soon as they mentioned Silver Springs, MD.

Freaky stuff. The place looks like a town of 10,000.

SILVER SPRING STATISTICS
Silver Spring Population: 76540 <<<---pretty small!
Male Population: 36964
Female Population: 39576
Households: 30374

Average Household Size: 2.5

Maybe it's just a hub. It doesn't prove that Shawn lives there.

Pretty small I guess, but 76,000 is a far cry from 10,000.

Silver Spring is a very well-known DC suburb. It's not at all an isolated small town, nor does it "feel" like one in any way.

Yea, having grown up in that area, all of those towns blend into each other, there is no real seperation.

One of the victims was a parent at my little sister's school. Even though some of the shootings were very close to where I live, things like that make it seem more real. Unless the guy "messes up" though, it doesn't look like the police have much of a chance of finding/catching him

Btw, like JayC said, nobody around here thinks of Silver Spring as a town, all the suburbs here just blend together

Wildcard, what you just said is totally unacceptable. Your putting this persons reputation and company reputation on the line. Your comment should not of even been posted. Lets think before we post, eh?
