Well? It's on FX and 8pm EST(I think?). Its about the North Hollywood Bank Shootout from 1994. Sort of a documentary I guess. Anyone?

They are going to leave out the part where one of the bandits shot himself in the head. They showed it live the first time.

I am kinda waiting to see if they will throw anything in there about the "evil" AK47's they used.

They're already doing so on the previews. And I (sorta kinda, with the best my memory can do) quote: "Military assault weapons"

I know the bad guys in the bank robbery used full auto AK-47's....but what was the rifle Al Pacino used? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Oh..come on..you knew someone would do it. [:D]

The report I read at the time said that the swat sniper put a round through the neck at the split second after the the BG pulled the trigger under his chin, they said they proved it because he would not have ben able to pull the trigger on himself had the swat's round hit him before.

From what I remember and still continue to see, only one had an AK and another had an HK type weapon.

That's not saying they're evil. It's stating a fact. The rifles they used were military assault weapons. They were fully automatic AK-47s right? I'd call those assault weapons that militaries have used.

A buddy of mine from the LASD said those cats had already been busted on illegal weapons charges and they used a g-3...but im sure it could have been a cetme. I hope they dont show these guys buying FA G-3's from walmart or someshit. While going thru the acadamy he got to see the (whole) OJ Simpson, Rodney King, 44min deal. BTW Rodney King is a Punk!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I suspect anti gun propaganda. The shooting occurred 6 years old and has largely been forgotten, yet they bring is up again so soon to the D-Day for the AW ban??? I might watch it, but only so I can bitch about it the next day, or so I can count the number of times the phrase "these types of weapons should not be in civilian hands" (or similar statements) are uttered thoughout this movie... Hey, let's make an AR15.com drinking game out of it!!! Take a shot everytime someone says 'assault weapon/rifle' I bet I'll be passed out long before the badguys get taken out...
Link Posted: 5/31/2003 9:21:36 PM EST
As stated above.....anti-propaganda.....i'll watch it anyway.
Link Posted: 5/31/2003 9:33:48 PM EST
I totally agree with HKocker. This is pure Kali, anti-gun Politics. As a Kali LEO I have seen the LEO training tape on the shoot out and taken a class on critical incident management from the guy that ran the crime scene(s) investigations. The bad guys had two FA AK's, a converted HK91 and an M16A1 or SP-1 (can not remember) with a C-Mag a long with other assorted handguns and such. One of the things that never hit the media is the fact that when the LAPD officers got back to the scene with the AR's they barrowed from B&B guns, they were ordered to not use the rifles because they were not qualified on that weapon. Got to love the brass.

Ok HKocher, It will be a drinking game!!! But can I use milk? [:D]
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 6:55:35 AM EST
They were carrying AKs. They had 2 ARs and 1 HK91 in the trunk.
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 7:21:02 AM EST
the whole thing makes me sick!!! i don't understand why people would cower in their houses while officers get shot. all it would have taken was one guy with a deer rifle to end the situation.
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 10:03:32 AM EST
That's because it was in California... stuff like that never works out for badguys in Arizona and Texas...
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 10:44:09 AM EST
I am going to watch the movie to reaffirm my belief that assault weapons in civilian hands have no place in a civilized society.

Total propaganda.[chair] Timed for the AWB.[noclue] Bad guys armed with AK47 asault rifles.[heavy] The police armed only with courage.[argue] Did this event change the weapons policy of LAPD? Need i write more.[soapbox]

I'm planning on watching it, with a keen eye for antigun BS/propaganda. Anyone think they'll note that despite the BG's "scary" illegal assault rifles and the relatively underarmed cops, the BGs are the only ones that died?
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 2:54:21 PM EST
i dont have enough beer in the house to make it a drinking game. FX can't be all bad, they show NASCAR!!!!!!!!!!! once more............why did you people want this imbroglio guy freed??????????????????

correct me if i'm wrong. but in the first 2 minutes didn't they say "semi-automatic machine gun". i wasn't really paying attention yet. but thought that is what they said.
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 3:42:20 PM EST
I'm waiting to see one of those Iraqi pimp guns with all the chrome, show up! Somebody keep a count on the number of rounds from the AK's....this should be interesting! Here we go....

shots fired, they're spraying the bank down now
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 3:44:05 PM EST
Nevermind..I just counted about 200 rounds from the drum and 100 rounds from the mag. [rolleyes] Oh boy...
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 3:46:07 PM EST
How many times have they said "AK-47" thus far???
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 3:48:02 PM EST
hell, already we know that the AK-47 fires a high velocity projectile capable of penetrating body armor......................... EVIL, EVIL, EVIL I SAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok, now a full auto AK can blow open a safe if you shoot it enough...............[rolleyes]
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 4:01:09 PM EST
OK--They DEFINITLY had AK-47 machine guns. I'm pretty sure.

Thats it! I want one of those unlimited round magazines!!!! I demand to know the manufactor of those magazines!! Are they Egyptian or Romanian??? Good Lord...100+ rounds from a AK 30 rounder....amazing I tell ya. [rolleyes]

ya, the safe didnt open afterall, but every shot they put into those cop cars is about twice as big as a .50bmg hole
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 4:14:20 PM EST
why have I seen them change about 5 drums out, if they're unlimited capacity? How unrealistic! They should never run out. Maybe I'm watching the HBO version... hmm.

In all honesty it's not as bad as I thought it would be. Did they really let loose 500+ rounds inside the bank??
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 4:18:23 PM EST
Wouldn't the bank manager be to deaf to comply, after all that gunfire in the bank?
