    Deputy Shot at Forsyth County Courthouse

    This one is too close to home for me.

    Looks like the deputy will be OK. Perp is dead.

    Convenient that a SWAT team was already in route for a different issue and was there in 37 seconds.

    Forsyth County Sheriff Duane Piper said that Dennis Marx drove up armed with an assault rifle, bullet proof vest, smoke grenades and a gas mask. He threw out stop sticks at the entrance so other cars could not drive up, Piper said.
    Sounds like he was prepared to do the maximum carnage possible, nice the SWAT team was able to stop him before he could do any more damage.

    Glad the deputy appears to be doing good. As previously said another idiot off the street.

    “The only way I can describe it is in a frontal assault on our court house,” Piper said.
    “From the video, it looks like he saw that deputy, swerved to try and run over the deputy
    I'm glad the deputy came out okay, but it looks like someone at wsbtv let their dog type the story.

    “His emotional state was very fragile. He was very sensitive, very, very, scared. He has no prior criminal history. He was obsessed with not going to jail,” said Marx’s former attorney Ann Shafer.

    Mission accomplished.
