They will only shoot up burned out pickup trucks with broken axles.
I was looking at a time line of the events. Seems they found his burned out truck. An hour LATER they sent out a bulletin to Nevada Highway Patrol with a description of his vehicle.
Either really a) bad reporting, b) the cops don’t know what the heck they are doing, or c) he had another vehicle staged that may have been witnessed by someone.
I’ll go with “a” and “b”. The cops make him out to be some Rambo guy so when they can’t catch him they don’t look so bad.
IN Walden New York that would be several pickup trucks..
