i’ve seen lots of coverage, especially yesterday. What I can’t find is information on what sort of rifle the nutjob used. One has to assume it was a “hunting” style rifle of the type that wouldn’t be covered by an assault weapons ban. If it were an AR style rifle it would be in the lead sentence of every story.

Because this story is clear support of Wayne LP’s arguements. The story has been a constant on local radio

Here is radio traffic from fire scene. The Firefighter calling it is was shot in the leg and back and continued to relay info to the dispatch center.

The whole public safety community has been affected by this incident. It has been reported that one of the firefighters killed was also a Police Lt and the other a 9-1-1 Dispatcher, both of who were volunteers with the FD.

Thoughts and prayers to their families and friends and praying for a speedy recovery to the other 2 firefighters who were shot and currently being treated for their injuries.

Is there information on why he was released from prison after murdering his grandmother with a hammer? Why wasn’t he sentenced to be executed? Was there a plea bargain by the DA? Who was the judge who sentenced him? Who was on the parole board that released him? All of these people may well be co-conspirators in the murder of the firemen.

It doesn’t fit their gun control narrative because he obviously obtained the weapons in spite of an absolute prohibition against felons having firearms.

It was all over Foxnews. I think some networks don’t have their writers working today so they only recycle certain stories.

This a-hole set a trap by lighting his own house on fire and waiting for first responders to get there.

How crazy is that?

Laws will not stop the insane.You can write gun laws till hell freezes over , but if a crazy wants to kill he/she will find a way.

This incident has been very quiet in the Media, I guess it doesn’t fit their agenda.I listened to the 911 dispatch tape and it was amazing the calm and coolness with which the Firefighter on the scene and wounded was descrining the incident. That guy had balls of steel.

If only Barry had been able to have a sit-down beer gab with him none of this would have happened. Since this country now belongs to Sam Donaldson I suggest he be immediately arrested and executed for allowing this to happen. Hey Sam, what goes around comes around.

Some people should just be terminated. Killing a relative, particularly and elderly women, with a hammer should be an executable offense. It would have saved several lives and would have probably been merciful to the nutcase who lived an obviously tortured life.

From the NBC story posted on another thread:

“Police would not say what kinds of guns Spengler used,but as a convicted felon,he could not legally own firearms.”

I wonder WHERE and HOW he got the weapon(s)?

Maybe that’s one of the reasons for the lack of coverage....

It appears that William was the executor for the grandmother he killed and inherited her house at 193 Lake Road...It is right next door to the house he was living in with his wife Arline G. at No. 191 Lake Road...and the address given for the fire.

We have not even heard the name of the wife (probably ex.)in the local media.

It appears that neither the sister or his mother had any interest in the property.

Back in the 1960s and 1970s firemen would not go into certain areas of cities because they were being shot at when they responded to a fire.

Is’nt it time we recognize this threat to our first respoonders for what it is?

Fire department response personnel are mobile ‘firearm free zones’?

Not to diminish the issue, but... Doesn’t this happen every year on OCT 30 throughout Detroit?

Christmas in rural Iowa has seen this headlined in every local newscast as well as on HLN.

I heard all the weapons were stolen which is bad for gun-grabbers. If the guns were illegal, no law would have stopped his actions.
