However for this situation, the marksman had an exceptional power in figuring out who kicks the bucket and who lives. He obviously picked individuals from the motorways at arbitrary, crossing the lines of sexual orientation and age. This unconventionality is the thing that made these arrangement of occasions so unnerving.
