Surprised there isnt a thread on this. Went to jail for beating his daughter, while he's banged up his girlfriend starts seeing another man, out of fear she tells Moat he is a policeman, hoping it will put him off hurting him. Moat gets out of prison, gets himself a shot gun, hangs around outside his ex gf's house, listens to his ex, her mother and her new bf slagging him off for 2 hours through the window. Stands up, shoots his ex gf through the window! The new bf comes out with a lead pipe, Moat shoots him dead. Come the morning he rings the police and makes threats, but they could not keep him on the phone long enough to track it. Moat then shoots a policeman sitting in his car 3 times. Rings the police back up saying "now do you take me seriously." Goes on the run. The next night he raids a chip shop. Next day his car is found in the village of Rothbury, 2 people are arrested. Dozens and dozens of armoured police turn up. Big megaphone announcements across rothbury telling the public to stay in doors. They cut the village off and begin a search. The police find a 50+ page letter/rant in Moats car, he says he feels like the Hulk, bare in mind this man is addicted to steriods! Says he needs his medication. That he will kill as many policeman as he can before he dies because they took his children (social services took them after he went to jail for beating one of them) and they took his girlfriend (which isn't true, his ex lied and he's taking it out on the police). Next day the find his tent in the corner of a field. Another letter stating his intent to kill police. The police raid a farm house where Moat broke into and slept in the spare bed! The family are now too afraid to go back. Moat has made threats to the "wider public" as the police have put it, in other words anyone gets in his way may fall victim. Still not found, 6 days since he killed a man. On the run in the woods. Armoured vehicles have arrived from Northern Ireland to protect the police, dozens of snipers brought in from London.
