EYE WITNESS ACCOUNT FROM FORT HOOD

Seems the press keeps getting it wrong. Here's a first-hand account by a Captain eye witness on the spot.

I know it's not even directly relevant to Britain in general, never mind Wigan in particular.

But I bet you all read every word:

" Realizing my mistake I left the main building and walked down the sidewalk to the medical SRP building. As I'm walking up to it the gunshots start. Slow and methodical. But continuous. Two ambulatory wounded came out. Then two soldiers dragging a third who was covered in blood. Hearing the shots but not seeing the shooter, along with a couple other soldiers I stood in the street and yelled at everyone who came running that it was clear but to "RUN!". I kept motioning people fast. about 6-10 minutes later (the shooting continuous), two cops ran up. one male, one female. we pointed in the direction of the shots. they headed that way (the medical SRP building was about 50 meters away). then a lot more gunfire. a couple minutes later a balding man in ACU's came around the building carrying a pistol and holding it tactically. He started shooting at us and we all dived back to the cars behind us. I don't think he hit the couple other guys who were there. I did see the bullet holes later in the cars. First I went behind a tire and then looked under the body of the car. I've been trained how to respond to gunfire...but with my own weapon. To have no weapon I don't know how to explain what that felt like. I hadn't run away and stayed because I had thought about the consequences or anything like that. I wasn't thinking anything through. Please understand, there was no intention. I was just staying there because I didn't think about running. It never occurred to me that he might shoot me.
Until he started shooting in my direction and I realized I was unarmed. Then the female cop comes around the corner. He shoots her. (according to the news accounts she got a round into him. I believe it, I just didn't see it. he didn't go down.) She goes down. He starts reloading. He's fiddling with his mags. Weirdly he hasn't dropped the one that was in his weapon. He's holding the fresh one and the old one (you do that on the range when time is not of the essence but in combat you would just let the old mag go). I see the male cop around the left corner of the building. (I'm about 15-20 meters from the shooter.) I yell at the cop, "He's reloading, he's reloading. Shoot him! Shoot him!) You have to understand, everything was quiet at this point. The cop appears to hear me and comes around the corner and shoots the shooter. He goes down. The cop kicks his weapon further away. I sprint up to the downed female cop. Another captain (I think he was with me behind the cars) comes up as well. She's bleeding profusely out of her thigh. We take our belts off and tourniquet her just like we've been trained (I hope we did it right...we didn't have any CLS (combat lifesaver) bags with their awesome tourniquets on us, so we worked with what we had)."

Not really relevant, but the male cop - a Senior Sergeant Todd - is black.

Good man.

Looks like the feminazis lose an icon.

Seems - seems - my machine's working ok now - but it did crash again about half an hour ago.

I've just posted a little post with a link Sir M.

Interesting to say the least, although I think the US hierarchy have fucked up and are covering their collective arse. As usual.

Should segregate the troops until further notice. Better to be safe than sorry.

Regarding betrayal by your own, this is off this topic, but relevant to us.?
OUR forces who are training the Afghan police force will now have to assign two or three of their own to watch the trainees, while the squad have a tea break. They, the Afghan and muslim people's prove time after time they can't be trusted, AND YET, we continually put OUR young men and women in their direct line of fire.?
What is it going to take, to make this cretin ridden government of ours, to decide to BRING THEM HOME.?
Its a no win war, as soon as we leave, whenever that is, this country, Afghanistan WILL REVERT TO TYPE as Russia found out.
THE TALIBAN WILL CONTINUE.?
We are losing young men and women needlessly,
BNP Policy,
Get them out of HELL, NOW.!
