I, Sniper is a six-part docuseries from Vice TV that explores the case of the 2002 Beltway Sniper attacks that terrorized the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. The series is narrated by Charles A. Moose, the former Montgomery County Police Chief who led the investigation, and Robert Holmes, a former FBI special agent who played a key role in the case.

The first episode starts with a brief overview of the shootings and how they affected the community. It then introduces us to the two masterminds behind the shootings, John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, and their initial plans for the attacks. The episode also gives us a glimpse into their personal lives and the events that led them to commit these heinous crimes.

Throughout the series, we get a detailed account of the investigation and how law enforcement agencies worked together to track down the snipers. We see the challenges and complexities they faced, from collecting and analyzing evidence to dealing with the media and public pressure. The series also sheds light on the personal toll the case took on the investigators, who worked around the clock for weeks on end with little to no sleep.

I, Sniper also explores the psychology of the snipers and their motives, as well as the impact the case had on the victims and their families. We hear from survivors of the shootings, as well as family members of those who lost their lives. Their emotional interviews are a reminder of the lasting trauma and pain caused by the attacks.

The series also highlights the racial and social issues that played a role in the case, such as the racial profiling of black men and the societal stereotypes of snipers being exclusively white. This offers a thought-provoking commentary on how these biases can impact investigations and justice.

The final episode of I, Sniper offers an in-depth look at John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo's trial and the aftermath of the case. We see how the trial was a turning point in the way law enforcement agencies handle similar situations, and how the event has forever changed the residents of the D.C. metropolitan area.

Overall, I, Sniper is a gripping docuseries that offers a comprehensive and insightful look into the Beltway Sniper attacks. The interviews with key players in the case, combined with archival footage, creates an overwhelming sense of authenticity and detail that makes the viewer feel like they are a part of the investigation.
