I guess criminals like Airstreams too.

Maybe this has been posted here before but I hadn't seen it.
I came across this on Youtube.
I wonder what it will take to restore the trailer.

That is amazing shooting to not hit those tanks win that many lines of fire. So sad the officer was killed.

That is horrendous. I can't help but think of the other people cowering in terror in their mobile homes while this is occurring. The walls are so thin.
So sad to hear the officer was killed, just doing her job.
The Globetrotter is nearly identical to mine, but with bullet holes, which I truly hope we never, ever get.

Experience is what you get from not having it when you needed it.

Think of all the new holes you could put rivets in????? You would be the envy of the AF.

Why didn't they shoot a canister of tear gas in there first to soften him up.

If I recall correctly, the trailer was set on fire and destroyed shortly after this incident. It will not be missed.

He killed an Officer in the line of duty, and in cold blood. Not generally a avenue to be taken prisoner. The trailer was torched a few weeks later. Pretty sure they weren't in a hurry to put it out either.
