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?

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

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.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Dangerous Tech Oligarchs Who Answer to No One | Glenn Greenwald | Ep 104

Have you noticed how the people who call everyone a conspiracy theorist are the biggest conspiracy theorists of all? Like the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory that the Washington elite used to discredit Trump and force him out of Washington, D.C. Or how the CIA is the real power center of American politics. Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and author of the new book, "Securing Democracy: My Fight for Press Freedom and Justice in Bolsonaro's Brazil," is an outsider in the media because he calls out these abuses of power. For one, he agrees that the Deep State is real.

Greenwald is a rare breed these days: He does actual journalism. He explains things very well, like his description of Trump's appeal and Obama's mystique. He and Glenn cover so many topics: Woke corporations, Julian Assange, the #MeToo movement, Putin, Snowden, The Constitution, Big Tech censorship. Why does the Left call Greenwald right-wing but the Right calls him left-wing? For a journalist, that used to be a badge of honor. But as Greenwald points out, the journalism industry has become a Woke priesthood. So, if you want to learn about actual journalism, listen to this episode. It's totally worth getting through a couple of technical difficulties.

GLENN ON TUCKER: The elites are using COVID to reshape the world

Wasn't life supposed to go back to normal once the vaccines were widely distributed? The lack of information coming from the government elites should be a sign that maybe, just maybe — all their experts are out of ways to spin this? Or could it be the elites are using COVID to reshape the world into THEIR own image?

Critical Race TYRANNY: The Great Reset of Education

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.
