    Link: The Tank Is On The Loose - Drat the dozer, this fool stole a TANK! Talk about bringing the Vice City videogame into Reality Street. Remember this?

    Damage to property can be fixed. Lives can`t. And that`s what separates this from GTA. Let`s not compare violent pedestrian slaughtering videogames with reality.

    I had a Sociology course last quarter and we studied this guy a little. Apparently, he was a heavy meth user with a mine shaft in his back yard. His wife had left him several months before he stole the tank. He took it because he was frustrated that he couldn`t get a permit to mine gold on his property. The cops killed him, even though he had the tank at a complete stop and he was unarmed.

    It`s actually really sad.

    My mom actually saw this, in real life. This was in San Diego. Kind of scary, but you need at least two people to operate the main turret.

    How the hell did an insane meth-addict manage to steal it in the first place? Did the supply officer in charge go "You look trustworthy, here`s a tank for you."?

    He probably couldn`t get it to fire if he wanted to, so what`s the point of stealing it?

    Kate,the tank wasn`t at a complete stop,the driver moved the tank and then got stuck,and then kept the engine running and tried to run
    He had proved he was dangerous to everyone,so they had to stop him after he refused to leave the tank

    Umm...
    If you steal a tank, the cops leave you alone, everyone knows this. I happen to have played a violence simulator and I know that the military will attack you when you`re in a tank.

    And THAT is why I`m glad the British police dont have guns... if they had gotten into the turret to find he was unarmed, they would simply force him out. Not shoot him. He`s hardly a threat if theres police right on top of him.

    lol the officer is "forced" to shoot him. its funny how they use tazers in situations where they shouldnt do anything and they use guns in tazer situations. makes you wonder what they`d do in gun situations? bring out a drating nuke?

    I think police should have guns, but sometimes they dont know when to use em. If someone has a gun and your police dont your pretty screwed

    Alright that Effer DESERVED to Die. It`s a Miracle he didn`t kill anyone else in the process of driving around like a freaking lunatic. Hardly a Threat my ass. The Guy is Nuts and doesn`t give a S#it about anyone else. Let him feed the worms.

    Did they need to shoot him? No. Will I judge them too harshly because they did? No. Who knows what we would do in that situation, under that pressure?

    We had some guy here in Colorado do something like this back in like 2002 or something. He grabbed a light tank and went on a driving spree... Never fired or a shot or anything and died when police cornered him in a fuel-less tank.. dropped a grenade on himself inside :S
