Posted on 06/06/2014 1:42:37 PM PDT by ctdonath2
A well armed & armored defendant drove to the Forsyth County GA Courthouse, ignited a smoke grenade, and started shooting (injuring one deputy). He didn't last long. SWAT showed up within 40 seconds.
40 seconds? I wish my PD would show up that quickly.
Some people - when called for jury duty - just don’t handle it well.
That’s pretty fast
Why those f***ing jack booted thug pigs...
Forty seconds isn’t surprising since he went straight to the cop shop.
Few details about Marx were known, though Piper said he had been known to authorities for some time. Marx had filed a civil rights complaint against the sheriff’s department in 2013, according to court records.
The complaint accused the sheriff’s department of using excessive force and illegal searches. Marx said in the complaint that officers hit him when he was standing with his hands up, used chemical agents to make him believe an explosion or fire had occurred and used an extra set of handcuffs that cut off circulation to his hands.
So he txt’d them and they showed up...
Well, he got sumpin right.
I’ve got jury duty Monday......................
Well, leave ‘em at home. Please.
There must have been a Dunkin Donuts across the street....................
Our courthouse is like getting into an airport. Metal detectors, guards, one way turnstile doors, cameras, the whole works...................
GA FReeper ping.
NOT a gun-free victim zone.
I got stuck in the traffic around the courthouse. Took nearly an hour to get through town.
Did you say ‘donuts?’ ;-)
Oh, they all are.
But meanwhile, getting into your child’s school?
Any mad man with a gun can still easily do it.
Should have taken the scenic route......................
Why do people do these crazy, evil things?
I think acts like this prove Satan really does exist.
Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense does it? At any courthouse there are cops all around the place. We recently got a new courthouse built, and one of the reasons was the old one was, besides being old and too small, was being near a middle school on adjoining property and a elementary school a mile away......................
It is an up and Cumming area.
Show some Red Badger Courage.
ThAt was supposed to be the scenic route. I thought I would bypass Atlanta traffic anf go through Cumming.
Sounds like suicide-by-cop.
Cumming, GA...............heh-heh-heh................(I used to live in Norcross)................
I’m not gonna get shot just to prove a point..............
OK, that’s funny, albeit in the midst of a bad situation.
I felt very safe. I even got out my car and waved at the TV cameras
There are no coincidences: today is National Donut Day!
They called him a “gun trader”, then much later noted that he was a felon, which meant he could not legally trade guns.
He is a self-proclaimed “sovereign citizen”.
I bet your “I love Norcross” T-shirts don’t as many double takes as the “I love Cumming (ga)” T’s. :)
CNN is reporting the dead man is former employee of the TSA. How about that?
I was just at the bank near the courthouse square. I heard the area around Courthouse Square will be closed at least through tomorrow. The Forsyth County Sheriffs Department did an excellent job today. That the POS died of multiple gunshot wounds makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Got a link on the “felon” tidbit? Know someone who will need to know that, lest he go on about the “gun trader” line and accuse RKBA types.
The Mellow Mushroom staff in town had those shirts. Pity it closed.
It was just mentioned in the WXIA-TV story.
“Ann Shafer, one of Marx’s attorneys, told 11Alive News her client was arrested over a year ago on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and firearm possession by a convicted felon.”
So if he was arrested over a year ago, and was a convicted felon *then*, his conviction is kind of old news.
“According to court records, Marx faced many drug-related charges from August 2011, including manufacturing marijuana, possessing a firearm or knife during the commission of a felony and possession with intent to distribute.”
Sheriff is a good guy. Form 4 signoffs while you wait. Made clear keeping good citizens safe was a real priority.
Forsyth County is among the richest in the country, though you wouldn’t guess driving thru (upscale-but-humble housing adds up). Big Tea Party presence. If the cops hadn’t dispatched the guy, methinks bystanders would have.
Loved Mellow Mushroom.
Goodson Drugs still sells the shirts.

If the link does not work you can search master calendar by using today’s date.
If that is the same as an ANARCHIST the USA used to take real good care of them.
***That the POS died of multiple gunshot wounds****
But, but in Seattle they are telling us that all we need to stop a bad guy with a gun is a can of pepper spray!
Should the deputy have used pepper spray or mace first?
Above link from Daily Mail and video link towards bottom of page. Must have been taken by comstruction worker. Might be same clip shown on mews but worth watching to hear comment at end. “They kilked that mother fu*ker.” Daily Mail bleeped last word out, sweet just the same.
POS vs FORSYTH COUNTY SHERIFF, SWAT. & anyone else he could think of
I kistened to a raw scanner feed last night. Cannot find link but it was quite chilling.
Cumming? I ain’t even breathin’ hard yet.
Virginia may be for lovers, but Pennsylvania has Intercourse.
Ans Martha’s Vineyard has Gay Head. ;-D Just thought I would throw that in.
