If memory serves,Glassman lived a floor below Berkowitz in an apartment building.David had some issues with Glassman and once started some 22 shells on fire in front of Glassman's door hoping for them to go off.He also had some problems, real or imaginary with a couple who I believe were the caretakers in a building where David lived.And then of course later, the Carrs.This shows David's problems with mental illness and schizophrenia.Things like this,I believe,point more to David acting alone in the Son of Sam killings.That being said, there remain some questions to be answered.The different descriptions and the yellow vw seen at many crime scenes.Did Berkowitz ever own or have access to a yellow VW?We know when he was apprehended he had a creme colored Ford Galaxie.Interesting stuff.
When David was arrested, its been said that John Carr shit himself a little. I would take this to mean John was probably involved but not in any leadership or decision making capacity. He wasn't happy to see David take the fall, which is interesting because Berkowitz didn't like John, by his own account.

Ace, Yes I'm sure if John was involved he did shit himself a little when Berkowitz was arrested even though rationally one would have to know the authorities were eventually going to catch somebody whether it be a lone gunman or one of the gunman.
Hi guys! It's GREAT to see the participation picking up on the boards!
There has been speculation that John Carr was the weak link in the cult and was being set up to be the fall guy if things got too hot. When Berkowitz got the parking ticket, that seemed to shift focus away from Carr to take the fall.
It seems the board has some overlapping threads where you might find additional information on yellow VWs and Craig Glassman, etc. Check out the "David Berkowitz - Life Before Son of Sam" thread under the topic thread "David Berkowitz" and the "Craig Glassman" thread under "Berkowitz's Likely Accomplices"
