Detroit — A graphic surveillance video from inside a Detroit police precinct shows a wounded commander exchanging point-blank shots with a gunman on Sunday, returning fire despite being hit in the hand and side.

The 68-second video shows Lamar Moore, 38, entering the 6th Precinct and pulling a pistol-handled shotgun on officers who were working behind a horseshoe-shaped counter.

This is exactly why people have to be on point at all times… even police in their own stations. This looks like a pretty clear cut “suicide by cop” … a very bold one.

Pure gold… I couldn’t make stuff like this up if I tried.

I truly feel bad for her if she is unable to afford health insurance, or is not eligible.  I’m sure she was in a lot of pain from when her dog jerked the leash, but why make things worse?  I think her expectations of getting fixed for free were too high. especially since she was obviously very forthcoming of the fact the gunshot was self inflicted. I wonder what the possible charges she is facing are?

The most retarded quote in the whole interview though by far, was the following:

“I guess I should have shot a little lower and got the bone and the artery.” -Kathy Myers

Heh yea nothing screams good idea like a .25 ACP to an artery. Hopefully her girlfriend talks her out of any future “bright ideas”, although I have a feeling Darwin may get another chance.

Since the FBI raid on the Michigan based Hutaree Christian militia, other Michigan militias are trying make it perfectly clear they do not have the same philosophy.

“Show, Shoot, Shout, Then Sip Some Tea With Us” is the slogan of the get together, and the primary objective is to take the stigma out of the word ‘militia’.

I think this is a really good idea.  Although I believe they are going to have trouble distancing themselves from Hutaree, because it seems like the only major difference is lack of religious extremism.  Guns, realistic training, disaster preparedness, and differing views on government are all still very prevalent;  those types of things are what will continue to frighten people.

I wish them the best of luck with their efforts.  It definitely looks like they have a fun day planned.

The anti-government Hutaree group, which described itself as a ‘Christian warrior’ group, allegedly planned to kill a police officer, then attack others during the funeral.

They have 4 videos up on YouTube (HERE).  For the most part, the videos just look like some average guys having a bit of fun by emulating a military style of dress and training.  There are a couple of things I raised my eyebrows at, one being the burning of the UN flag in the “Huratree Z-01” video.

Taking a look at their website, under the About Us section there are definitely signs of religious fanaticism.  Is there anything threatening though? Definitely not as far as I could see.

I always wonder in situations like this what the actual evidence was that they were planning an attack.  Perhaps someone that was scared of the training they were doing, and the views they have, and decided to try to get them into trouble? Maybe not.. but that definitely seems like a possibility.

If an attack actually will actually be prevented by arresting these people, I applaud a job well done.  Though, if this is a case of a group of people getting into trouble with the law because their views and practices differ from mainstream society, that is very troubling.

CNN’s front page attempt to frighten the public:

They are not enemies of the government, they just want to be prepared if the government becomes the enemy
