    Pretty cool video, but that doesnt look like a windshield. It looks more like they are in a building.

    My first thought is why they're still sitting there.

    EDIT: Upon closer inspection, it does seem as if they're in a building, which would explain why I don't hear a motor turn on and tires squealing.

    I watched again and it looks like the front passenger side of a Hummer windshield - Right where I sat as an MP Sgt when I was over there.

    Maybe it is, I dont know. The frame of the window, and the ledge or dash is whats throwing me off. Plus the acoustics of the guys talking dont sound like a Hummer, but that could just be the video. Eithier way, its a neat video.

    That vehicle they were sitting is the up-armored version of the hummer. started out as a regular turtle top hummer, and about 4 years ago, they up-armored it. This is what I work on at Ft. Riley. If anyone remembers the hard top hummer, the doors were composite. These new doors, an overhead crane is needed to replace them. The windshield glass is almost 1" thick, made of, I think, 6 layers of the old bullet resistant glass. Weight of the vehicle has almost doubled with all the armor stuff they put on it. Alas, it still can't deal with the roadside bombs they are using over there. Engine now has a turbo on it and the trans is electronic. Good vehicle but I would hate to gas it up with my money, with all the weight it has to move.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.
