liberal basement dwellers were trying to make the guy a hero, like Lenin, Stalin, Che etc
they will be deeply saddened until the next bag of Cheeto’s arrive
He is like Lenin, Stalin, Che, and all the other liberal heroes. He's a bloodthirsty killer with no morals. It looks like he's also a whole lot more skilled than the cops hunting him. I hope they get some specialists in on the hunt - a pair of former Army snipers turned cops (or deputized for the week) might give the police an advantage. City cops may be out of their element in the woods against a man with a top-tier scope and a high powered rifle (a real one, not a .223) who knows how to use them.
I haven't been following this closely enough to know what he's using, but it wouldn't surprise me if he had the police outgunned. In a made for TV movie, he probably would have planned for the guy he tied up to get away and call the police into a planned ambush. In any case, with two more cops shot, it's clear that he's out thinking them and probably has better equipment too.
