Suspects Open Fire Outside Dallas Police Headquarters

DALLAS — Gunmen attacked the police headquarters in downtown Dallas from inside an armored van early Saturday morning, shooting at officers and leaving satchel bags filled with pipe bombs around the building in a brazen overnight assault that led to a standoff that is continuing this morning.

Police officials said no officers were wounded or killed in the attack, which began outside police headquarters and spread to the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant in a nearby suburb after the vehicle fled from the authorities. Officers fired at the vehicle with 50-caliber rifles and disabled it, starting the standoff.

    Live report from Dallas

    Seems he bought the armored van on Ebay.

    If the guy is who he says he is, he was arrested in May for making threats about shooting up a church and having a ton of weapons and got released on something like $16,000 bail……. Smart judge.

    • Thanks,

      Judges should be held responsible for the crimes of people they let out.

        I agree. If their judgements are reversed a number of times or as in this case . there are frequent re-offenses while on bail then their appointments should be terminated for incompetence.

    The arrested loon, James Boulware, had a solid record of mental illness that involved fantasies of involvement with the mafia, Russians, nazis, weapons threats and God knows what else; and they let him walk around. Because “Human Rights”, y’see.

      News says he’s still holding out in the van, where does it say they got him?

      • Mal

        Thanks for the correction, Lolwut. He’s not been stopped yet; but I’m hoping that happens before he takes somebody else with him into hell.

        Even I flinched at the *zing* of the ricochet in that video. Bit too close for comfort there, Scooter J!!! 🙂

      • Thanks.

    • Wild!

      Lolwut? is dead right – this mental case has not been arrested yet. I neglected to include the adjective “previously”, as in “previously arrested loon, James Boulware…”
      He is, for now, still free to enact all the lunacy the progressive judges have allowed.

      • lolwut?

        The police chief says they shot him with a .50 Sniper rifle through the front window.

        If he isn’t dead, he will be soon enough. You don’t get hit with a .50 and walk away after all this time. it’ll be getting real hot in that van soon also.

        • Mal

          I would think so, Lolwut. I just recently happened to be watching some Jerry Miculek videos in which he showed what a Barrett M107 could accomplish. It was impressive!

    Watch out for zombie juice!
    The van had a Georgia license plate, and online records indicate that a company in Newman, Ga., sold a similar vehicle on eBay for $8,250.

    The company that sold it, Jenco Sales Inc., described the vehicle on Facebook: “Zombie Apocalypse Assault Vehicle and Troop Transport. This full armored zombie busting vehicle features convenient gun ports so no zombie juice touches you during a mass zombie take down. It also has benches in the back so you can take turns resting during long Zombie sieges. The tactical step boards are installed for when you only need swords and axes for drive by mow downs. The bumpers are made of reinforced steel tubing, so no dents from smashing zombie heads! It’s full armor plated and has bullet proof windows just in case you run into other zombie hunting hordes who might try to take this bad boy from you. Like anything, there is a price attached to this fine piece of zombie fighting machinery.”

      Humerous ad copy aside, this appears to be an old-school SWAT van that many police departments used – until they got replaced by the government surplus military grade AFVs that had everyone in a kerfluffle recently. Such replacement is likely why this van was at a used truck lot to begin with.
