Dr. Reid: This wasn't a burglary at all, there's a higher purpose. They're staging the crime scene so that they can send some kind of message. Agent Morgan: This guy's trying to make it look like black guys from the 'hood are killing white families in white neighborhoods. Agent Prentiss: Pretty powerful message.
Agent Morgan: Nothing about that house says rob me. Beat up eight-year old minivan in the driveway, there's nothing fancy inside to get. Agent Rossi: Violent hardcore burglars don't pick random targets, so why these homes? These people, they're terrified. Half of them are moving, the other half are joining neighborhood watch. Morgan: Well can you blame them? Rossi: This whole community's going to be on edge until we catch these guys.
