How an off-duty officer ended a three-day manhunt
ONLY ON 12: Officer who arrested escaped inmate tells story of surreal face-off
Early Saturday morning, dispatch sent out an alert. Perry Sullivan carjacked a blue Ford Explorer at a store in Sycamore, S.C.
"I started thinking, you know, Sycamore is about 12 miles from where I was at. He ended up in Fairfax and then back at Sycamore. He's trying to go east," Patsourakos said.
He left from a concealed weapons training class he was teaching at the campground. He went back to the campsite, told his family the news, picked up his M4 Carbine and left in his truck. He sped down Highway 641 in Colleton County and decided to stop and block the road using his truck. Armed with only the M4 rifle, he got out and waited.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

Sierra Hotel , Ofc. Patsourakos.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Did anybody watch the video linked to this story?
Correct me if I'm wrong or over reacting but......
I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't trust that reporter with that or any weapon. Whoever gave him that AR15....M4 or whatever it is needs to be fired. Somebody forgot to tell him that you ALWAYS treat a firearm as if it was loaded and NEVER point it at anybody or anything unless you intend to shoot it. At least that was what I was taught about firearms.
Major Kudos to the officer for catching the criminal, because the situation could have very well became worse, but the reporter is a tool and an idiot.
Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.
