Another Fort Hood shooting: Military cops kill U.S. soldier during gunfight
Law Enforcement Examiner ^ | 16 Dec 12 | Jim Kouri

Posted on 12/16/2012 4:51:31 PM PST by LSUfan

A U.S. soldier was killed Friday after he opened fire on members of the Military Police at the Fort Hood Army base in the state of Texas, according to a source.

The MPs at Fort Hood while on routine patrol discovered a suspicious vehicle parked near the main gate of the base in the early morning, according to the law enforcement source.

That seems like a virtual miracle after what happened last time at Ft Hood. That shocked me! I never knew that the MP’s weren’t armed on a military base........

The article says they have not released his name or “pedigree” yet. I guess he was a dog, not a person. Ou of control, armed, K9 I guess.

During my stellar military career (cough,cough) I never had a single “unpleasant” encounter with an MP.If I had known that they weren’t actually armed I might have been less “compliant”. (only kidding)

Hell, when I was a young kid in the USAF in 1958 guarding F-102 Delta Daggers in Alaska (still a US Territory then) I was armed to the teeth. I even had the audacity to challenge pilots when they approached their fighter planes. My three stripes and M-1 carbine against their captain railroad tracks. I was always right.

Of course, my C.I.C. was a guy by the name of Dwight Eisenhower. How grateful I am that I was allowed to serve my country under that man.

Ok.

Obviously it’s time to forbid the military from using, having access to or possesing guns, especially the most automatic ones with scary colors and magazines.

Yeah, that’s the answer.

Someone tell Diane Frankenstein do get right on that sh!t.

Funny how the Democrats are trying to introduce and pass a bill to completely ban semi-automatic rifles within a few short weeks of a some white, wacko kid shooting up a school, and three years later they are still trying to try and convict a wacko, Islamofascist for shooting 42 military members at Ft Hood.

Are you saying the Ft. Hoods MPs weren’t armed during the mass murder?

I was just thinking you and my Father would have gotten along great.

He was a combat veteran of WWII. For some reason he hated two groups. MPs and Airborne. I have no idea why tho he did once say that Airborne were trained to fight their own people.

I knew better than that but never argued with him.

I salute your Father, he’s an American hero. What an amazing generation of men.

Soldiers don’t like MPs because MPs reel them in when when they’re drunk or AWOL, and they don’t like Airborne because they think it’s an abomination to jump out of a perfectly good aircraft.

I can’t say I disagree, but somebody had to jump into Normandy, and that somebody had to use parachutes.

They were armed when I was serving.

If you drew armory protection during guard duty they issued you a pump shotgun.

Our family lost a member of the 101st in Viet Nam. I guess his name could be looked up somewhere on the web. His last name was Kaiser. He was my first cousin.

Spent some nights out in the jungle with a dog and his handler.
You could sleep when they were on watch.

Oh and IIRC they were both MP’s.

Well, all I know is they apparently weren’t armed when the shooting was going on at Ft. Hood. I was shocked and appalled. Who would have ever thought that an army base was a gun-free zone? Not even the MP’s were armed, and apparently the person in charge of their armory was not available at the time. At least that was what I heard.

Oh, no! Liberalism’s envy, hate, rage and insanity has borne more fruit.

I’m thankful he did not accomplish killing the MPs.

I was an MP in the organization known exclusively as Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. I was never unarmed...or more correctly, never un-ammoed. Even the ops I did overseas, many times, we were the only one with live rounds.

Hell, back in the 80's we went on one "sensitive op" where beforehand we were taken out and fired every single organic weapon known to the militarty at the time in order to be prepared.

The fun came when the op was over and we got to dispose of those arms so we did not fly home with "Class A Explosives" on board and could re-fuel at standard ports.

I know what you mean. One wonders whether we will ever have C.I.C. that we respect, again.

Investigators later determined that the 30-year-old man was assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood.

The soldier’s name wasn’t immediately released. The investigation is ongoing.

Probably a better chance this is suicide by cop. The Army has lost one soldier to suicide on the average of every 72 hours for over the last year.

Live through fighting a war to come home and find your bank account drained and/or your wife divorcing you or screwing around; couple that with the typical readjustment issues of everything in the real world changing while you were away.

Sadly I have seen it happen to some really strong men and women.

Let me guess, you were one of those a-hole M.P.'s who thinks he is omnipotent. The only thing I ever saw M.P.'s do was to go around and mess with my fellow Marines so they could bash some heads.

At Camp Telega which is on Camp Pendleton the the punk M.P.'s would turn around at the front of Telega because they were to big of pu$$ys to venture into Telega. The recon Marines stationed there did not take any shit from them.

Yea and once you were back at the base camp these M.P.'s would turn into omnipotent a$$holes.
