Life is so much cooler in slow motion. If I had a slow motion camera I’d definitely film myself doing random stuff like hopping out of cars, jumping guard rails, and taking my sunglasses on and off just to re-watch them over and over to see how badass I look.
My suggestion to Richard for a tech assassin: Penetration test on iPads! Line 10 of them up and see how far a .50 BMG round can get.
MIDDLEFIELD, Ohio — Police here said today they still do not know why James Gilkerson jumped out his car and began firing at Middlefield police officers who had pulled him over after Gilkerson had run a stop sign in the village.
They did say Gilkerson fired 37 rounds from an AK-47 rifle on March 10, and that the two officers fired back with 54 rounds of their own, killing the Mentor-on-the Lake man.
When ever anyone ever says police officers get paid too much I like to refer them to videos like this. How much is getting into a gunfight like that worth to you? I can honestly say that if someone said “Mike, I’ll give you a million dollars to pass training and be a cop for only one week, but you are going to get into a gunfight at some point during that week which you may or may not make it out of” I would pass. That’s how much I respect the work police officers and the military do. Sure a lot of it may be what people consider babysitting, but the possibility of any type of crazy situation like this happening makes me feel like they deserve every penny and more of their salary. There is really no price I would feel comfortable putting on my life. The one officer lost a finger in the encounter… I’d really have to think what even that would be worth to me.
Was the gunman trained by Buck Yeager? (see pic 7/10 in the slideshow) Yea he could have got that book from anywhere I know, I’m just curious… it’s not like it really makes a difference.
Pic 8/10 “Advanced Close-Range Gunfighting” – Oops… must have just got that one. Lucky for the cops.
I always roll my eyes when they present books like that to try and paint what a bad guy he was. I think the fact he unloaded 37 rounds at the police is good enough evidence, not the fact he had a keen interest in weapons and explosives. That hardly makes him a “terrorist” as the police chief so eloquently put it.
This guy! He’s trying to be the Andy Warhol of our generation, and I suppose it’s paying off handsomly for him… but seriously his ideas are all “meh”. Take this for instance… use contrasting colors and saying ASSAULT WEAPONS AND OMG HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINES are an investment of satan. Also, is that an AK-47 with AR parts on it? an ARAK-15 perhaps? Sweet Krinkov flash suppressor bro.
Another question I have, is did he just go and throw the letters NRA on the poster without giving a single? The NRA obviously has a registered trademark on that, so technically unless they gave Fairey explicit permission to use their brand in his propaganda he could get in deep shit. I can’t just throw the letters NRA on a t-shirt for instance unless I was looking for trouble. I emailed my contact at the NRA, so I’ll update you guys when I hear back from her.
If you want to read all the facebook comments on this poster and Fairey’s deep “purpose” statement about the artwork the posts are HERE and HERE.
Remember when you did lame shit like play basketball in gym class? In Russia they play with AKs:
Yeah sure you balled hard enough that the gym teacher wanted to fine you. Your crossover was ill too, but don’t kid yourself, your chances of being the NBA were zero… practicing was basically just spinning your wheels. Learning how to assemble and disassemble an AK though is what I call a life skill.
I knew the dude with the glove at 2:57 meant business. When ever I see people rocking single gloves I always think of the two other guys that meant business; M.J. and O.J.. One does not simply play around if they are one gloving it.
Those Russian guys need to get their hair in check. Come to think of it I don’t think I gave much of a shit in high school either. I see those two honey dips with the fly French braids though. Glad that all has been forgiven since Napoleon invaded Russia in 1812. I hold grudges from things that happened B.C..
