Police said on Friday that they still do not know why the shooter, 42 year-old James Gilkerson, suddenly jumped out his car and began firing at Middlefield policeofficers in Ohio, who had pulled him over after he had run a stop sign. However, the items found in the shooter’s car, might have been his motive for resisting (my opinion, not the police department’s).

The incident occurred in March however, this graphic footage was just released showing the bizarre moment — which is at about the 1.57 mark — when the shooter cracked his car door only to begin blasting 37 shots at the squad car.

The officers returned fire and killed Gilkerson.

Cleveland.com reports, “Police showed the dash cam video of the shootout during a news conference. They also distributed a statement from the Lake County prosecutor saying the shooting by police was justified and the matter would not be taken to a grand jury.”

    Well, how’s that for a quiet Ohio afternoon. Mr. Muslim extremist, oops, I guess Gilkerson ain’t exactly Muslim is it? Nope, much more Christian conservative republican tea bag NRAer who believed that Obama was personally coming to take his AK from him. Looks like they’ll by prying it from his ‘cold, dead hands.’ Haven’t seen this on Fox, or Limbaugh or any of the other lying POSs who’d have you believe that this behavior is OK because….well, really, none of their arguments make any rational sense, otherwise, this wouldn’t happen.

    In
    late March 2013, 17 year old De’Marquis Elkins shot and killed a 13 month old
    baby who was sitting in a stroller. Elkins shot the infant in the face after the mother refused to give him money. He also shot the mother in the leg and the neck in Brunswick , GA.
    De’Marquis Elkins is not a member of the NRA.

    He did not use an assault rifle.

    He did not get his stolen pistol from a gun show.

    His favorite music is rap.

    He did not attend Christian school, nor was he home schooled.

    He did attend multicultural public education, and was not instructed in the Ten
    Commandments.

    His Momma was on welfare, got food stamps, and lived in public housing.

    His daddy was not around, and his two brothers have a different daddy.

    He already has a record for violent crimes.

    He is gang member.

    His mom, grandma, and Aunty all voted for Obama.

    He never earned his hunter safety card, nor did he shoot CMP, Junior NRA, or 4H
    Air Rifle Competitions.

    He was never instructed in gun safety from his father or grandfather.

    His public education and family taught him that the white man owes him
    something.

    He went to collect it.

    He has no plans on getting married, but does have a Baby Momma, and no, he is
    not supporting her baby.

    He smokes dope.

    He does respect Kayne West.

    While he has no job, nor is looking for one, he is well fed.

    He has no skills outside of crime.

    He speaks Ebonics, and is not capable of doing a professional interview, even
    though he spent 11 years in public education.

    He is one of millions.

    This is what we are up against. Make no mistake that people like Elkins
    will have their guns. There are people wanting to deny you the right to
    arm yourself. Your tax dollars are paying for the continuation of a
    system that breeds pieces of shit like this one.

      What a racist, hate filled mind you have. You are the problem and like the nut case that fired on the police officer, you should not be trusted with a firearm.

    Bad is bad folks. Some might want to quit sugar coating. Citizen, non citizen, does not matter where he / she is from, religion, political view or other wise. I mean really, who cares if he is home grown or not? Who cares what color he / she is. Only thing that matters is that he / she is DEAD and cant kill anyone or have a chance to in the future. I applaud the Police Officers.

    30 rounds and he ended up dead regardless. High cap mag’s didn’t work out for him / her it seems. Kind of blows holes in that theory.

    This is a perfect reason why we as in law abiding citizens (whom choose to be armed) can protect our selfs and our neighbors from that or at least have the chance to.
