    After they stole the SUV and had the shootout with the task force how did the younger brother get away? I know about him running over the brother and all but why were authorities not able or why did they not pursue him? Did the terrorists somehow disable all the chase vehicles with their bombs and shooting? It is very difficult or next to impossible for an everyday traffic offender to ditch a single police car and radio. How did this terrorist being chased by an elite group of terrorist hunting law enforcement ditch them in a car chase?

    I think he just got VERY lucky.

    My big question right now is if the Metro PD officer got hit by "friendly fire". Cops shot over 200 rounds and the brothers had a single Ruger semi-auto pistol. Will truly suck if that is the case.

    cloaking device?


    A guy I know is what I will call a highly decorated vet from Vietnam. One day on patrol a **** jumped up between him and the man in front of him. He was unable to shoot said **** because of the likelihood of hitting his buddy. A fight ensued. My friend was even on top of the guy, on the ground, for a minute beating the crap out of him. All of a sudden he was gone. The platoon spent the better part of an hour looking for him and found nothing. Must have crawled into a spider hole, but the point was that sometimes people get lucky and slip away.

    How fast do you run toward two guys who have just thrown explosive devices at you?

    LOL, I think the answer is very fast. The closer you are to them the better. Isn't this true in any kind of fight? I would be wrapped up on one of them like cling wrap!

    Odds are in the middle of a firefight you are most likely on foot outside of your car. I once had a guy drive off when I was at the front bumper of my car. By the time I was back in my car and in drive he had made a left turn and was halfway down the block. By the time I made the same turn he was making another left. By the time I made that turn he was gone. He of course was driving it like he stole it because he did and I was driving it like I would get suspended or convicted of manslaughter if I ****ed up.

    From what I understand the firefight took place at around 50 yards or so. They were using their cars as cover. They ran up to get to one brother and the other took off. Their cars were 50 yards away. I was 20 feet away from the car that bailed on me. 50 yards is a hell of a head start. Assuming their cars were functional after being used as bullet stoppers.

    That is my guess. It only takes a few seconds head start in a vehicle to get away. The perimeter is what kept him contained.

    He probably used license plate flippers.

    Um... Does anyone else see the uncensored potty word in this post? It shows in the OP but for some reason is censored in the quote.

    That's never happened before; to me at least.

    Yes, the swear filter doesn't always work, for some strange reason.

    edit, I think if you post from tapatalk or OHubcampfire it doesn't censor it.

    I posted from Ohub. If you read it on Ohub it shows up. If you read it from the regular site it is filtered. An interesting glitch to say the least.

    Same here.

    Although I didn't notice it until it was pointed out.

    Suspect #2 walked away! Then again, judging by the size of the Police Officers I've seen in the media, I'd be surprised if those coppers could make it from the cruiser to the front door of the Donut Shop without having a Heart Attack!

    The average non-LE citizen does not grasp the brutal and absolute truth of this statement. Catching the bad guy is good, but maiming or killing an innocent in the process will get you a slot in the unemployment line and possibly an adjoining cell with said miscreant...and chances are pretty good he'll be out before you are.

    Losing the chase sux. Being able to try again the next day: Priceless.

    During the arrest of the older bomber, the younger bomber drove away in the hijacked SUV then abandoned it down the street and took off on foot to hide. Here is an eyewitness account with pictures the witness took on his iPhone.

    According to a news source, NBC, the younger POS got in the SUV, floored it, had a good head of speed up, runs over his bro, and into a police car barricade, slamming between them, knocking them out of the way, and escapes...

    WHY no one was on him like a priest on a choir-boy, I don't know....it seems no one even followed him...but this is NBC, could be all wrong, to the media, this matters NOT...

    In any case ( pulling a Hillary here...) what does it matter now ? ? huh, punk ? ? had it been Chelsie victim of a crime, and gets killt, she won't mind if someone walks up and screams at her..." what, at this juncture, does it matter who or how she was kiilt ? ?


    I am out...and YES, IT MATTERS....dc...:cool:
