AP reports that Charles Moose, the Montgomery County, MD police chief who became famous for
botching heading the investigation into the DC sniper shootings, has resigned. While no details are given, it would be hard to imagine it didn’t have something to do with the huge book and movie deal he would have had to give up to keep the job. And, frankly, it’s hard to fault him for not taking the money and running, given the alternatives. Presumably, he could get another police gig elsewhere if he wants.
