Don't know why but the only thing that stuck out for me is a brand new leather jacket. No miles on it whatsoever. Maybe a weekend warrior?

But then again...in Aus they call them "Bikies" instead of bikers...


Saturday night giggles.

Peace

Dude has serious issues. Imo, those cops took a hella chance (you could hear the gas hissing) to let him get all the way back to that propane tank. He hit it with the stolen vehicle to blow himself up…

Here in the States no one is safe from termination with extreme prejudice by law enforcement. Whether a man watering his lawn, an old man reaching for his cane, a driver reaching for his wallet, a young girl sleeping in the arms of her grandmother, a homeless man camped in isolation bothering no one or an infant asleep in their crib. All documented events, all deemed justifiable.

Most likely the same way it could have ended in Australia...

Thanks for stereotyping though.

You are joking me, right?

See when the suspect ran with his jacket over his hand?
In america he would be dead after taking 2 steps, and you know this.

Truth hurts?
