"We keep getting pushed back totally out of site of station"

Brian, maybe you meant "sight?" This is the quality of general assignment reporters the station has?

This is a case of where there is more trash in the TV station than in the Dump Truck.

Maybe the dump truck was coming to make a deposit and the brakes failed.

In light of Michael Sam becoming a Ram, I find that comment highly distasteful.

I know it’s not as exciting, but it seems to be a small BOX truck, not one of those dump trucks with 10 foot tires.

And as for the reports about a potentially armed guy barricading himself in the building, well, another report says the driver jumped out, fled, and nobody knows where he is.

The media's knowledge of trucks is similar to their knowledge about firearms.

Is was a AK-47 Glock Assault Dump Truck.

Their local programming has sucked for years. And the signal itself. I live only a few miles from that station and it STILL comes in distorted.

Maybe the ramming will clear up the signal.

They are not ‘gas tanks’, they are ‘fuel magazines’.

Please use the correct terminology.

I just heard that the vehicle used in this attack was a Fully-Automatic Assault-Dump Truck with detachable 30 gallon fuel magazines.

Imagine how many buildings it could have rammed with those if it hadn't jammed!

Violent crime and people going off the rails is strongly correlated to the state of the economy. Same for divorce and substance abuse.

No No No you are not getting me a second time, i’m sure that picture is fake.
Eyeran TV has overdone it with the Alloy wheels. LOL
Did you see the pictures of the new Iranian Stealth fighter posted on the Drone thread (about 8 hours ago)? It was something special to behold.
