#1 Can't say I blame the cops for feeling that way...

#2 If he's that good, shouldn't the army be stepping in to take him out? I don't think SWAT could handle this guy if he decided to set up a defensible position. I'm not saying the army should sweep in to clean up their mess either, like they're guilty of something. I just think that the only people with the proper training to take this guy on is probably another sniper team.

#6 Right lotp, except when of course, its something the 'liberals' approve of whether its Eisenhower at Little Rock or Kennedy in Mississippi. Then they can quietly let it happen, damn the law. However, the 'law' was the South's revenge for Reconstruction. They got testy about them soldiers hanging about voting places. Took the Act to remove them and the black from the place. The whiners talk about how it protects our civil liberties when in fact it stripped blacks of their civil rights for nearly a hundred years.

#7 Please note that a Blackhawk helicopter is being used to search for him. I doubt that it is a civilian model. They are also probably using Lantern IR search to find him.

Unless he had his stuff together before he whacked his wife, he will not have a tremendous advantage.

#9 Maybe they should bring in Lon Horiuchi. But then, he might not like an even match.
