Because Zodiac's ciphers often look tantalizingly solvable,many get led astray,and believe that someone else must have the solution,paving the way for ''short cuts'',in their investigation.
With specialist subjects,it is almost always the case that the designated teacher,will make purchases,on behalf of the school.
I have a copy of the Brenda Haugen book.For beginners,it is excellent,and would recommend it,for the purpose of a general idea of what ''all the fuss was about'' [!].Once senses that Ms.Haugen,saw a ''need'' and a ''niche'',and provided an unpretentious introduction to the case.
But,many others just hitch a lift on the bandwagon,with the sole intention of making a buck,of ''easy'' money.
I don't really believe,for example,that Mr.Thomas Horan is a true ''nihilist'' on the existence of Zodiac.Here is a case [....and not a basket case [!]...]of a Zodiac enthusiast,bereft of ideas,and frustrated at not being able to come to terms with the existence of a truly enigmatic psychopath.
So he hits on the idea of becoming a particularly controversial ''conspiracy theorist''.He writes two books;makes a few waves,and finds his niche within the Zodiac ''arena''.But as time goes on,and Law Enforcement appear still prepared to hunt down this real individual,called Zodiac,Mr.Horan's theories begin to look a bit ''tired'' and ''old hat''.In addition,Mr.Horan finds that he is dependent on those,who largely ''believe'',for his income,and a purpose in life.
Conspiracy Theorists who theorize,just for the sake of staking their claim,on an ''angle'' to a particular case,are INTELLECTUALLY LAZY !
I don't think many will buy his book after viewing tell YouTube video he has. Total crap , over 1/2 of symbols not used trying to deconstruct this cipher blindly is like trying to catch a big fish by casting a bare hook into the water and reeling it in.
I am always in favor of encouraging others to try to reveal anything of the legacy of Zodiac's secrets.
Perhaps I should be humble enough,to hold back from discussing my journey,on how I ''stumbled upon'' Zodiac's ''340'' solution.
It certainly didn't happen ''overnight'',and strangely,must thank Zodiac,for his lucidity at the time of constructing his cipher.I believe that it mean't pride to him,after the ''humiliation'' of the ''408''.
Rubislaw 32's solution is now in the hands of the FBI.They are presumed to be experts in this field.
Zodiac's ''340'' cipher represents a direct ''vehicle'' for Extortion.And an indirect one for Murder.
Hopefully,the FBI will share their findings with the general public,soon [?].
Rubislaw32: feet to conclude Russian intervention investigations. Then Trump's first public utterance on Comey (claimed by wikipedia ) : ''Comey is crazy - he's a complete nut-job !''. As if Trump was comparing Comey to Norman Bates - he was genuinely spooked.

Rub--law32: I'm no fly on the wall, but it's a pound to a penny that (then) Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told all of this and more to Donald Trump, when Trump was champing at the bit to do business with Russia, and couldn't fathom why Comey was dragging his

Rubislaw32: An explanation from Comey to the Attorney General in a parallel universe : '' Yes, I had considered our great nation and the principles of its security - but first I had to check if my boys needed to do any covering-up - plus the ''hero'' factor for me.''.
Aug 15, 2022 7:57:29 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: 'Embarrassing' ? Well, given the code of sociopathic behaviour ingrained by the FBI, who knows how Comey felt. But at that juncture, the Attorney General would have realized that Comey hadn't informed him on terrorist info from Frank Mulholland. Treason ?
Aug 15, 2022 7:37:43 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Yes FBI, your man Comey caught red-handed impersonating Sherlock Holmes, and without security clearance from his boss the U.S. Attorney General. Just sniffing around, concerned that your agency were about to be left out of a Z-loop. ''M-Bare-Assing''.

Rubislaw32: Brenda's case resurrection goes back to February 2015, and a public announcement of a re-investigation into her murder (July 14th 1978). One week later, the Crown Office took safe possession of Joan Webster's case file, followed by Comey's Z-case exposure.

Rubislaw32: So, although crude terminology, and retrospectively murdered by neither GSK nor the Zodiac - Nancy's case was assisted benevolently by both GSK & Zodiac ''cash cows''. August 22nd 2022, and the murder trial of Brenda Page starts - Z's Scotch Tape lie.

Rubislaw32: Since the arrest of GSK in April 2018, the official LE claim is that 150 criminal cases have benefited, with a perceived GSK link. In addition, Nancy Bennallack was murdered one day before the Zodiac Killer mailed his Halloween Card (Oct. 27th 1970).

Rubislaw32: To the CA DOJ : If the Zodiac is still alive, as I believe and believe that you know that he is - go and get him. The public are past caring about your level of confidence, and whether you think it is in the public's interest. Let him speak for himself.
Aug 14, 2022 18:29:30 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: on their obligations. For the CA DOJ, they still seem to be on the side of righteousness - but there is certainly concern that they might make him a ''fall-guy'', expended for other benefits of the CA DOJ's choosing. History will be harsh if they play God.

Rubislaw32: In time, the FBI will be outed for their dereliction of duty in the Zodiac case - and even when they were giving him attention, ''dropped the ball'' on so many occasions. Those that retain a case interest, still hope that the judiciary can deliver..

Rubislaw32: Has the Zodiac Killer case been used as a ''cash cow'' for resurrecting other cases to gain necessary funding, to be solved ? Certainly an element of truth there - but no one would want to be the person to say that to any victims' families.

Rubislaw32: ...solve the ''biggest fish'' (e.g. The Zodiac Killer case) - the more holding back in time to catch it. For the UK I have proffered (at least) Z-outliers related to Inverness 1976, Aberdeen 1978 and Glasgow 2005. Resolutions on those, still a bit away.
Aug 14, 2022 15:52:06 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...Killer's. But, once that undertaking is made (e.g. Bennallack case), then with the extra funding found, the case in question is seen out on its own merits regardless. The ''Catch-22'' scenario might be, though, that the more outlier cases allocated to..
Aug 14, 2022 15:47:41 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: often than not this funding would have been federal. To put it another way, cases that are elevated to a high-profile status, on the basis that they can be shown to have possible links to an already established high-profile case, such as that of the Zodiac

Rubislaw32: ...that this has mostly to do with tragic events unfolding on Capitol Hill January 6th 2021. Then swing 36 hours later to an announcement of the solving of the Nancy Bennallack murder 51 years ago. No relationship at all ? Now that's an interesting...

Rubislaw32: Politics and funding to fight crime ? Now that's an interesting subject that even the keenest of investigative journalists may not , if ever, come close to even touching the surface. For Mr Trump's subjection to a recent raid, the public would be aware....

Rubislaw32: Message for the FBI ? : ''Dear Hoodwinker Wray, This is The DOG speaking and we are in control. DOG 1, FIB 0. The DOG eats you up. Woof, woof. - The DOG.''
Aug 14, 2022 7:53:55 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Moreover - what might remain an ''outlier fear'' for the FBI is, if the Crown Office uncover evidence of a crime committed by the Zodiac, outside of any jurisdiction that the FBI might hold -something like death threats to Stanley Kubrick's family (UK) ?
