What the heck?

Indian Tribes battleing it out with assault rifles? The images of this in my head are hillarious.

Just about a month ago I was hassling some guy from Canada on this forum over the fact that some Natives got uppitty and closed down the highway. Now we have it in the USA. Great!

This is not new in the States. Do some reading on the Saint Regis Reservation in northern New York, or the Tonawanda Reservation in western NY. New York State has had armed standoffs (involving the State Police) lasting weeks and months with native tribes.

circle the wagons!


Our natives dont revolt much. They are rolling in the dough from the casinos. But come to think of it, there was a standoff in CT or RI almost 20 years ago. They were selling cartons of ciggarettes without tax stamps because reservation = soveriegn nation right? Well the revenue dept didnt like that too much and threatended to go all General Jackson on the Indians. I was cheering for the Natives.


Thats it for native revolts here except for the Pequot Wars, which were also the colonies first war with natives.

News Media !

Don't you just love the news media. A wonderful headlind:

Deputies kill 2 people in Riverside County shootout

Then the article....

SAN JACINTO, Calif.—An hour-long gun battle on an Indian reservation ended when Riverside County sheriff's deputies shot and killed two people who had fired at them with automatic weapons.

Then, they FINALLY get to what REALLY happened!

A man and woman attacked the deputies using assault rifles, then drove off into the hills on the reservation, Sgt. Dean Spivacke said.

Let me see. Man + woman with assault rifles ATTACK deputies.

Deputies defend themselves (and anyone else from the public standing around.)...

So the media makes it out like the deputies mrudered two people. I suppose that's why so many of the liberal media outlets are going dowwn the drain! Go Fox News. Fair and Balanced!

The reveration dont want the Sheriffs there so the Sheriffs should just let them kill them selfs everyone wins!!!
As I read the article, I understand the "shootout" started OFF the Reservation and after they opened fire on the deputies, the two FLED ONTO the Reservation.

Maybe I'm not reading it right...

Steve, it isn't clear, but having lived near a reservation in Arizona, the casino is probably on the reservation.

Evidently it is okay for people to shoot at other people with assault weapons, but call in the law to protect the innocents who DO NOT have assault weapons (and themselves while at it), they are branded killers.

Had the shooters not kept firing while running away, odds on are they would only be in jail and not the morgue.

I do like the comment by the Chief though. SWAT is liable to shoot first and ask questions later. Probably not, but I wouldn't want to be in the area where they are working, especially with a weapon.

"The law enforcement officers involved were placed on paid administrative leave pending the investigation."

And there you have it, the deputies, SWAT et al were on foreign soil, sovereign land not part of the United States. The investigation will uncover where it began and what laws and treaties govern pursuit and authority and who has jurisdiction over the matter.

"So the media makes it out like the deputies murdered two people."

This is entirely possible but not too probable. The media being entirely ignorant has them tried and convicted while your ignorance hasn't reached a verdict yet. When the thread finally runs out of steam we can tally the votes in this kangaroo court and see who is Dumb or Dumber. Will it be Beavis or Butthead?
