Gunman in Arizona Says He Deserves Free Newspaper Subscription


One of the two men accused of terrorizing Phoenix with a series of random late-night shootings thinks his notoriety deserves compensation.

Dale Hausner called the East Valley Tribune from jail and requested a discount Tribune subscription as a reward for generating newspaper headlines.

Hausner, 33, called himself “Dale the Innocent” when placing the collect call, and said he deserves a “sweetheart deal.” Said Hausner: “I’ve sold a lot of newspapers for you.”

The Tribune declined Hausner’s request.

Hausner and Samuel Dieteman, 31, are accused of shooting at numerous people over a 14-month period as they cruised Phoenix-area neighborhoods during the night.

Hausner faces seven murder counts and Dieteman faces two murder counts. Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty if they’re convicted.
