Watching our live feeds at CNN, cops chasing a GMC van through LA, who is supposedly armed with an AR15 and has shot at cops and the helicopters following. Wow, good thing they banned that rifle. [:(!] Edited because it seems it probably isn't an AR15 now, though that's what everyone was reporting that this guy had.

Does that mean you work at CNN?
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 2:59:05 PM EST
Yes
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 3:01:06 PM EST
Their not broadcasting it on either Headline or Regular CNN. Is it over?
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 3:02:11 PM EST
No, we're not covering it for some reason. Fox News has been going back and forth to it. Guy looks like he's heading to a specific place, also been talking on a cellphone.

I looked too and nothing!!!! Is OJ on the loose again?
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 3:05:20 PM EST
If you're going to catch anything it will probably have to be on Fox. He's in a residential area now, still seems to have a specific destination in mind. Also, can't tell if there's just the driver in the vehicle. Supposedly there's at least one other.

It's over but you can watch what happened here: [url]http://www.ktla.com/news/index.htm[/url] Click on "KTLA Feedroom" and go from there.

since we have a cnn employee here, why didn't cnn cover Bush talking to the business people today around 3pm EST? Fox had it live
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 3:10:08 PM EST
OMG, that's another chase entirely. The one I was watching is with a GMC van. That one's with a ruffles delivery truck.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 3:11:00 PM EST
Ah apparently that one on KTLA.com has already ended.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 3:12:26 PM EST
So is the GMC chase still active?

Yeah it's still active, I'm watching a direct feed from a chopper, but I don't know what affiliate's it is. edited because I quoted the wrong message.

Now he's back on the highway. Maybe he's not going anywhere specific. Interesting note, though. Cops have been staying back about 1/4 mile this whole time. Less when he's been hung up in traffic, but still not doing anything but following. What's everyone's take on that?

Man, he must have been hungry. Watching the GMC chase now. I guess now the need to ban vans. They are obviously used to commit crimes. AR in the woods, is there anyway to focus this realplayer.

Santyth, If anyone from this board ever goes berserk at work, we can only hope that it's you. We would gladly chip in for ammo.

Yeah, that's kind of like there is no gun crime in the UK because they banned guns, at least that's what the anti's say, never mind that their gun crime has gone up to the point of now arming 'bobbies', who have never been armed in their entire history.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 4:19:15 PM EST
Santyth, the cops can't engage with the guy in a busy street. Way too much liabilty if a bystander is shot. You'd be surprised how many stupid people would run out of their work, home, market, etc. right into the middle of a gun fight to see what the hell is going on. They don't even want to ram him because that would put the cops way to close to someone who has a high powered weapon and has already demonstrated he is willing to use it. Now their saying its a mac10
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 4:37:42 PM EST
update they say it's a tec-9 & that he won't be taking alive
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 4:39:07 PM EST
He says he won't be taken alive, and has a tech nine. The chopper dude just said a tech 9 is a low grade assault pistol that can be fired in full or semi auto.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 4:40:16 PM EST
news jerk said it's the same weopon use in colombine & that it can be used as a semi or full auto cheap assault pistol
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 4:45:13 PM EST
Just heard about that. Since when did they have a tek-9 at Columbine??
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 4:50:30 PM EST
does this van have one of those pre-high capacity gas tanks?
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 4:52:41 PM EST
this might get good, he's talking about shooting now on his cell phone

Update - Crazed gunmen w/ Tec 9 turns out to be Chuck Schummer!!! He's evading the police because he had just been caught in a police sting operation aimed at those buying & selling illegal firearms. Chuck was taped asking for an AK-47, Mac 10 & state of the art SW5 assualt weapon! Chuck was heard rumbling something like 'I'll show that b***ch how to be a Senator for New York'. Further updates to follow.

Shotsa fired on the pkwy. I got a sick feeling in my gut when he pulled into the mall. I thought "Oh shit! Hundreds of unarmed victims!" He's shooting now!
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 5:19:05 PM EST
This guy has no imagination. I would have been a free man hours ago. [:)]
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 5:20:12 PM EST
A Tec-9 was used for a few shots at Columbine, but the kids did most of the killing with old side by side shotguns.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 5:25:07 PM EST
Jeeze he is still going? What did he steal gasoline too when he robbed that gas station. He must be on drugs, he had plenty of time to get to Mexico and didnt.

I can't believe this shit,why are the cops letting this shithead keep this shitty chase going b.t.w. southpark wasn't shitty tonight[:D]
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 5:43:59 PM EST
so is this realmedia feed dedicated to this one chopper? there's no other newslibs or commercials?
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 5:47:24 PM EST
Tec-9 is semi-auto only. The media is a bunch of morons. themao

when they need to refuel other copters fill in. i think this stream is more for the network use then for the general public

Damn these guys have drug this out for a while. I was watching this on Fox News when I left work at 6:00. It's now 10:00 and these guys are still holding police at bay.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 6:07:57 PM EST
why don't they just do a fbi vs. bonnie and clyde ending on this nutbar right now? he's fired on people, he's still armed the logical conclusion is he will fire on more people. we've been sitting on the side of the road for 10 damn minutes. see if that astro can take a peppering of about a hundred or so magfulls.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 6:30:25 PM EST
best thing about the prk car chases.got bored with it after 3 hrs so did something come back its still going
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 6:32:04 PM EST
This guy was probably wishing for a 69 mustang with a 428. You can't run the cops very well with a mini van.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 6:33:35 PM EST
same old shit, it's a stand off on the highway. the van is out of gas. they might be waiting for snipers to setup

Link Posted: 6/20/2001 6:40:19 PM EST
Heck with the 69 Mustange. If I were running from the cops give me a BMW Z8. They gonna have to use the radio cause there is no way they gonna catch up. About the 69 Mustange... Sure you can out run the cops but most Highway patrols have Cameros. Unless you got nitro and a lot of it it will pretty much be even. You know while I'm wishing big even though it would suck to drive it(in a car chase) a Miclarin F1 would be ok. I mean what they wouldnt have a chance.

Earlier, I saw snipers set up on an overpass in front of him. If I were him, I would have faked being out of gas with about 1/4 tank left, let them set up, and scope out an exit that could give me a little more distance between himself and the cops. When the choppers go to wide angle, I noticed a few ways out where the cops would not be able to shoot for fear of hitting each other. After dark, I would have made my move and tried to get to a place where I could ditch the van under cover, out of chopper view, and maybe procure another vehicle via carjack. Thank goodness this guy was dumb.
Link Posted: 6/20/2001 6:43:44 PM EST
with those cars you'll either run out of gas or crash before getting away. no matter how hard you run you can't be the radio. and why must these fools think they can outrun everyone on the highways. get out of the car as fast as you can & go into hiding
