Why Did It Take so Long to Find 'Facebook Killer' Steve Stephens?

Thankfully, the so-called 'Facebook Killer,' who randomly selected and shot 74-year-old Robert Godwin on Easter Day, will not have the opportunity to kill again. After police recognized him in Pennsylvania, Stephens shot himself, ending a nationwide manhunt. However, with the technology supposedly at the fingertips of the United States government, why wasn't he caught sooner?

GLENN: Can I just -- can I just -- may I just -- I don't -- I mean, I don't want to -- I don't want to sound like this is a good thing by any stretch of the imagination. But how come we haven't caught this guy yet? I mean, don't we have all this technology that's been spooking the hell out of all of us?

PAT: I don't know. Maybe we don't have the technology we think we have because he should have been caught a long time ago, if we do.

GLENN: Right. I mean, we were also spooked by, you know, how the government could just grab you at any time. They can get your cell phone.

PAT: They know where you guy every minute of the day.

GLENN: This guy is uploading videos. And like, hey, I'm on Snapchat. And look at me. I mean, how do we not find him already?

PAT: I don't know. I don't know.

STU: Yeah, I go back and forth between, like the Edward Snowden view of the world, which is they have everything all the time, to this where like the most basic things happen --

GLENN: Right. How do we not have him?

STU: He's been on the phone with them.

PAT: I mean, on 24, we can transfer video to their screen on their cell phone 17 miles away. What -- we can't -- we can't find this stinking guy?

GLENN: Right. No, seriously. And, I mean, I'm so torn on this because I want this guy caught.

STU: The Cleveland murderer.

GLENN: And I can't believe that we don't have him in custody.

PAT: It's hard to believe.

GLENN: And I got up this morning. And I thought, this guys -- look, he's not the lead story today. He's not the lead story today. And by tomorrow, he certainly is going to be, you know, down in the -- does he decide, you know, I got to do something else. We have to catch this guy before he kills again. And who knows, maybe he already has killed people.

We don't know where he is. And so I'm -- I really want to catch this guy. And, on the other hand, I'm thinking, well, wow. Maybe the technology that the government -- we think the government has, they don't have all that.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Because I can't believe we haven't triangulated this guy's position.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: Maybe he's just -- maybe he's just completely gone off --

PAT: If they can turn on your computer in the middle of the night and watch you sleep, you would think they could find this guy.

GLENN: And -- and he still apparently has his phone because they pinged him in -- in Pennsylvania. He's turning off the phone. Well, what happened to the whole thing of, well, they can turn your -- your phone is never off.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, apparently his is. You know what I mean. They know which phone it is.

STU: It's so weird.

GLENN: It's really strange. It's really strange.

STU: How do you even drive around these days without them knowing where you are? With cameras. With --

PAT: With GPS.

STU: What kind of car does he have? Yeah.

GLENN: What kind of car does he have? He has a newer car. How do they not have a tracking? In fact, he has like a Camaro or something. A newer -- something like that. What is it?

JEFFY: It was a Fusion. It was a Ford Fusion, right?

GLENN: Oh, was it a Fusion? No, he owes money on a car that wasn't a Fusion. But Fusion --

STU: There's a lot of technology in the Fusion.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Doesn't the Fusion have the hard drive for all of the music?

PAT: I think it does. I think it does. And you can record your, like, CDs or your iPod into the car, and then the car just holds your music. I mean, that's really cool.

JEFFY: Nice!

STU: Yeah, wouldn't necessarily get you found unless you played the music really loud. But still --

PAT: No, but it's got a lot of technology in it.

GLENN: It's got a lot of technology in it.

PAT: The Fords have a lot of technology in them.

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

Why it’s time for Dr. Fauci to STOP DOING INTERVIEWS!

Dr. Fauci was at it again over the weekend, this time declaring during a CBS News interview that it's 'too soon to tell' if Americans can safely gather with family this Christmas season. But the main issue isn't necessarily Fauci's crazy statement, Stu explains to Glenn. Rather, it's Fauci doing TV interviews at all. The left will support anything he says and the right will call him an idiot no matter what. He no longer has the ability to sway minds, so why is he on television more than Glenn is?!

If the Deep State Can Ruin Gen. Flynn's Life, It Can Ruin Yours | Ep 119

Donald Trump famously tweeted, "They're not after me, they're after you. I'm just in the way." General Michael Flynn was also in the way, apparently, because the deep state has definitely gone after him, on every front. He's been hounded by the Department of Justice, the FBI, the Democrat Party, and the media. But the hounding didn't stop there. Chase Bank canceled accounts because he was "a reputational risk." Meanwhile, the real problems of our country go unchecked. Glenn and Gen. Flynn talk about all of it and more: The immigration crisis in Del Rio, the opioid crisis, the impact of critical race theory, the threat of radical Islamism, the corruption of the media, the persecution of Brett Kavanaugh, the incompetence of Biden, the tragedy of Afghanistan, the hypocrisy of Gen. Milley. And Russia. It's is all we heard for the last six years. But as details emerge, we see the truth. Gen. Flynn is very clear: "I didn't lie to the FBI." And yet, Gen. Flynn still believes in the American people to save the country.
