Real Title: AK-47-Wielding Gunman Fires 37 Times at Shocked Cops During Routine Traffic Stop
The Blaze
May. 4, 2013 6:50pm Dave Urbanski


.......Stanko said eight 40-round magazines were found inside Gilkerson’s car, as well as some disturbing reading material (e.g., Backyard Rocketry: Converting Model Rockets into Explosive Missiles and Homemade Detonators: How to Make Them).Police have no idea why Gilkerson opened fire.

“He got of the vehicle, intending to kill my officers. We don’t know why he did it,” said Middlefield Police Chief Arnold Stanko. “He was a scumbag, and a terrorist, and he’s dead.”

In the March 10 video, Gilkerson exits his car—which the officers pulled over for running a stop sign—and sprays the patrol car with rounds of gunfire, cracking the windshield.

Wow. Suicide by cop. But he tried to take folks with him. I suppose that killing him was the worse they could do. Seems like he deserved a bit more than that. This should be a relatively easy walk for the LEO's involved I hope. Except for the guy that let that video out. If they find him...it might get a bit difficult.

That's proof to me that a good partner is worth the weight. She let out the warning right now.

I love how the cop just goes all out at the end and empties his weapon on the degenerate piece of garbage.

Yes. Mr. LEO wins a Cupi Doll! And a cookie to boot.

They neutralized the threat. Hopefully, all the LEOs get to go home to their families.

Yes, there is one more dead BG the world will never miss; and the police who responded acted both courageously and appropriately.

However, the real tragedy is how this will be used as another lever in the never-ending fight to limit and/or eliminate 2A rights.

Had the shooter been better trained and used cover the outcome could have been a lot different,I train to draw and shoot from a sitting position at the range sometimes in case I'm in that position whether in a car or at a table when I have to engage a threat

Just continue shooting until the threat is neutralized.

If i heard correctly the gunman was shouting "kill me!" ... Mentally unstable it would seem. Sad. Hope the leos are ok.

Dadburn waste of ammo. If he was yelling kill me all he had to do was get out and fire one shot and LE would have certainly obliged him.
Might have accounted for his poor aim as well. Sort of hard to get someone to kill you if you kill them first.:blink:

Wow. Challenging little situation, there. Talk about things blowing sideways ...

From the article said:
Thomas (LE), reportedly outside the patrol car on the driver’s side, is heard shouting as bullets begin flying at them. Stanko (Police Chief) said Gilkerson (the BG) was shot several times, but kept firing; he even shouted, “Kill me.” Savage returns fire through the windshield, after which the officers kill Gilkerson.
Well, the little attempted murderer got his wish: he's toes-up in the gutter, where he belongs.

Kudos to both the LEO's who dealt with the situation effectively. Bummer that they both got injured in the attack.

The only thing that bothers me about this, if the OP quoted it correctly, is that the police called him a "terrorist."

No, he was a deranged man shooting at cops. The word terrorist is fast becoming the same as Nazi, used so much that it lacks any real definition or meaning anymore.

Unfortunately, yes it is. The average person committing assault by verbally threatening others is now, typically, claimed to be making "terroristic" threats. It's absurd.

At first I thought the guy in the white car was intelligent, as he backed out and away from the fracas. But then he comes back ... and then, before this is over, we see a guy running across the street behind them. I'm pretty sure that guy was in the line of any stray bullets from the cops. Not very bright at all.
