    Anyone besides me think that might have been a SKS instead of an AK-47.... it's really hard to tell in this video

    Having thought of doing this is bad enough, but acting on it is another thing altogether.

    Holy MOLY, this guy has issues. I was happy to see one of the employees packing a gun (although it was in a lock box and not used until the guy would have already killed them all) who later chased after him and was lucky enough to get a clean shot. Good on you, dude! And the perp lived! He might have been all pumped full of something. I am just wondering about the police - weren't there two of them? I failed to see what happened to the other cop, was he shot? And if the perp was just charged with 5 counts of attempted murder, why not the 99 other charges for firing on a cop? Anyway.

    I am kind of glad he survived; this way the media cannot make outstanding claims about the man, as he is alive to openly reject outlandish conjecture.

    I only saw one cop get out of the car, so I guess he did not have a partner? I almost wonder if he wanted to get to his car so bad to get his drugs out? If he was that desperate to get the car, what was he hiding?

    Yeah, only 1 cop, sorry.

    My first thought if I was there would be to get to the gun as soon as I heard the first shot fired. Lucky they had the door and glass barrier or he would have killed them all when he came in with the pistol.

    We'll probably never know "The rest of the story" as Paul Harvey used to say. The cops will definitely have searched the perps impounded car as well as his truck, his house and any other property.
    Glad the employee finally put the guy down - the cop didn't seem to be having any luck.
    I would guess the lone cop was responding to the first call, not the "Shots fired" call - that should have brought a much bigger response!

    And it DID look like an SKS - hard to tell for sure.

    I was already to write something, and I just can't quite put the emotions in a gear where words will do any justice.....
    ...and the guy lived.....hmmmmmm
    Probably get probation for having a bad childhood or some other hogwash of an excuse.

    As others have said, this guy had to have been WAAAY out of his mind on drugs. Not sure how else you survive what should probably have been a fatal dose of lead poisoning. I imagine that NOW (after it was almost too late) they will make some security changes. The best idea I could come up with was a miniature guillotine in the hole in the window. Stick your hand and the 9mm in, pull back a bloody stump! Ok, maybe not the best idea, but my most original.

    I hope, with the video evidence, they can put this idiot away for a long time. See how he likes becoming "Bubba's beeatch" in stir........ [winkthumb]
