this may be old news , but i thought it might be interesting to some folks here. note at the end of story that a person suggested that this person had "access to guns" and subsequently a "SWAT team will be called to your door". makes me sick! unfortunately, someone died. http://www.lubbockonline.com/stories/072501/loc_0725010032.shtml

I just loved this part
Firefighters and police were called, and Robinson's wife, Laura, told police Robinson had access to guns. Police later determined Robinson could have been suicidal.

LATER and COULD HAVE BEEN. Sounds real definite to me.

Pure speculation on my part, but this is what I think happened. The husband piled the wife's belonging in the yard and set them on fire. Angry as hell the wife called the police and told them that her husband was violent and armed to the teeth.

I wonder what caliber the bullet was that killer the leo. .223 or maybe 9mm?

Jesus that's lame. These guys are nuts, no fire control at all. 50 rounds from two guys at an unarmed guy. WEAK...

Sounds to me like they got in a firefight with themselves. I love this part:
Officer Marsh Blackmore wrote, "I believe I fired a total of five carefully placed shots at the lower edge of the window as I was afraid of hitting my fellow officers located on the north side of the building."

- Hmmm, [i]carefully[/i] placed shots, yet he isn't entirely sure how many he even fired. He [i]believes[/i] it was five shots. Does this sound like [i]careful shot placement[/i]??
The MP5s may be loaded with 30-round magazines, and[b] two officers reported shooting 50 rounds each[/b].

"The MP5s may be loaded with 30-round magazines, and two officers reported shooting 50 rounds each." Clip-reload-Clip. It really amazing that more weren't hurt. Now I know there is a place for SWAT, but these things seem to be getting just to common. It has gone beyond the one incident makes cops look bad. How much of this is hapening on small scale in daily uniformed work that we don't hear about? It doesn't make me feel good. Not for anyone. Zaz

A few of you guys are going a little overboard I think. "A person?" That was his wife who said he had access to guns. It also doesn't state what else she said. It does say "After failed attempts to coax Robinson from the house, the SWAT team was called." Sure it doesn't give a timeline but there was some coaxing and the time it took SWAT to arrive on scene for Robinson to come out. The SWAT team didn't take action until 4 hours had passed. It does seem they got into a firefight with themselves and looks like Robinson might not have fired a shot. Not a pretty picture certainly since it looks like one officer is dead and another wounded due to friendly fire. I find fault with the action they took but no fault in SWAT being there. No where in the story did it say Robinson was armed or not, it stated there were 13 guns in the house.

I believe in GUN CONTRAL against some creatures of our society.

I tell you guys it was the Bullet Fairy(tm) that dropped the bullet into Officer Cox's helmet, quit trying to make it sound like a friendly fire incident!!! Besides this just goes to show you that the Poe-leece don't want to do us harm, they are only here to protect us from ourselves! Just think if this homeowner had killed himself then his family would get no insurance $. Now if the Lubbock Suicide Squad(tm) whacks him out then the family (including the soon to be EX-wife) would get the insurance loot. They were only trying to do Robinson a favor, right??? [}:D] Nice shootin' Tex! [frag]

That's scary! Those swat guys were hot to shoot someone. Two guys fired 50 rounds? Gunfire coming through a brick wall? Yikes!
