Just a shot of a dude in Phoenix threatening cops with a "pipe bomb" More to come.

Saw it, no idea what this is about.
I'm watching it too. Weird.
Still there and guy in pink or white shirt carrying a yellow jacket over his arm hiding something.
I'm guessing bluffing drunk.
Many police and police dogs ready at the scene.
If he claims it's a bomb, take at his word, then shoot him.
Can we lock him in Lynn Stewart's cell - with pipe bomb still in hand?
Just shoot him already... He's standing virtually still, no one else around, and they have several clear shots. End this, now.
Doesn't look like anything there when his blanket swayed a bit.
It's time for the Smart Robot and/or the dog to pay the jerk a visit.
I agree Shep Smith mentioned suicide by cop.
My take. Let it be.
Well now that everyone is out of range the guy needs to prove it.
Breaking news? Catch a clue ... this is like watching police chasing a suspect on one of the LA Freeways ... unless it's O.J. who gives a rats ass.
I agree. Take cover...then let the SWAT team sniper have at it.
Pizza is here. Break for me, I must eat.
Okay, only O.J. is breaking news?
Sounds to me like a pretty serious situation for those who may reside in Phoenix.
No updates yet.
Sure there is.
Dubya called Islam a "great religion" again on the Bloviator's show.
Oh, well. He's still right more often than not.
They let the dogs on him.
The dog got him. All ends peacefully for the most part.
Thats what I'm thinking.
Why turn what could be a routine inderdiction into a half day long event involving every cop on the force and all the fire and emt crews that can be located ?
Oh right union and government employees.
10-4 on your OJ assessment. But a man with a pipe bomb I'd hardly call a serious event.
Did you see the dog. It ran a little past him then whirled around grabbing from the side. Man rolled up in a fetal position. Bet he was crying too!
The world is never short of Some Dude.
Saw it. Beautiful!
One of these days, when this happens, I think they should isolate the guy and detonate him in place.
Agree ... however, you're posting a local event on a national forum ... a run of the mill, mundane, non-event for most FReepers.
FNC briefly reported the ending this morning.
They set off flash grenades, then tackled the guy. He didn't have a bomb.
