Golden State Killer suspect, Joseph James DeAngelo, was a former police Sergeant in Exter from May of 1973 to August of 1976, which overlapped with the Visalia Ransacking crime spree, and a patrol office for the Auburn Police Department from August of 1976 to October of 1979, the same timeline as the East Area Rapist attacks. If DeAngelo, in fact, committed the numerous violent crimes associated with the Golden State Killer, how did his law enforcement training aid his criminal activity? How was he able to manage full time police gigs while maintaining an increasingly demanding criminal life? And what does his declining job performance in law enforcement at the time reinforce about the criminal case against him? Former Contra Costa County Chief Investigator Paul Holes, DeAngelo's ex-boss and former Auburn Police Chief Nick Willick, and Reggie Ellis and Paul Myers from the Sun-Gazette return to speculate about the alleged good cop gone very bad! via Knit
