  1. Bad situation! How we got to this guy doing this was the lack of justice when it comes to firearms. The laws around firearms is more then enough in the country! Here we have a criminal with bad intentions and has told the justice system to go away. He will get bail, then meet the officers that charged him coming in for the next shift! Toughen up the justice system, give these criminals the time! JAIL TIME! No need to chase law abiding citizens, we seem to demonize the victim in this country and support or feel sorry for the bad guy! Safe day to all first responders!
