Mark | 10 years ago | Reply I'd say the biggest concern is why the group seems so confident. That implies a number of bad things. Some of that would require inside help. Specifically the van with the accused being referred to. That takes knowing exact times, places and exactly which is carrying them. It'd be too risky to just go after them all. Then again, that confidence contained in a letter could also be proof of a bluff. It gets hazy. That's why it's better to just get rid of them all. It should be an unnecessary concern to have for anyone.
