    I heard a report that the bail was set at 2.5 mil CASH ONLY. No bond!
    The more I practice, the 'luckier' I get!

    I agree 100%. The bg is also facing 210 years behind bars according to the article in the morning's Pahrump Valley Times. When the paper goes online I'll try to remember to post the link so you can read the whole story, or you can check for the article on the front page of www.pahrumpvalleytimes.com on Thursday. The article did mention that the guy's wife had just left in a car after looking around outsidefor her dogs. It wasn't specified whether she was leaving afte for just a while or if she was leaving the relationship. The guy shot up the inside of his own RV, 32 casings were found inside.

Don't get me wrong I think our constitution is a wonderful document, but it contains too many provisions for protecting the rights of the accused, and not enough for protecting the rights of everyone else. That needs to change.

Being armed will accomplish nothing unless the shooter or shooters enter your home.
    I agree. In my CCW class, I was taught that avoidance is the first option, drawing and firing is always the last one.

    Officer Murphy had his stitches as well as the third bullet removed. He continues to recover.

He was shot 3 times in the back after he unknowingly walked past and then was about 8 feet away from the bg, apparently hidden and lying in wait. One bullet went all the way through, one was stopped by his vest, the last is still inside with surgery planned for the future. Thank goodness he wasn't hit in the head, and that he was wearing his vest! Previously, his wife had asked him to switch to the lighter vest, he'd always refused. The investigation is ongoing.

    My comment about hunkering down is this: there were 15 other RV units besides his own that were hit with bullets from this bg; where exactly in an RV does one hunker?

    Yesterday at breakfast at the VFW I noticed that our Sheriff was wearing his pistol. He rarely does so. I think the Nye County Sheriff's Deputies will be on high alert for days to come. The latest news on the bg is that he was in Iraq as late as this past September 8th, and that he might have been drinking heavily, and was expecting a military action of some kind. Too bad he didn't get the help he needed for PTSD (or shell-shock,) if that's what he has. Now, all he will have is a very long time in prison, which is where he should be so please don't misunderstand me, but there certainly could/should be more help offered to our returning military. Our VA benefits suck big time! So, now I can already hear some who will cry for more arms control when the real issues here are the lack VA benefits to help those who return from combat.

    Very good points. I have more than a few friends who need this help but due to the way the system works are unable to get it. I always here we support the troops well how about calling or writing your representatives to see that the VA does what it is supposed to do. These guys deserve our support they need help. thnks again for the info

    Now, it is my understanding that the suspect WAS in Iraq, but that WAS 5 or so years ago, not just a few weeks ago. I hope he gets the help he needs while he's incarcerated!

    Just an update: we visited Officer Murphy and his family tonight, (his mom is my friend) we took them some homemade chicken noodle soup, good for the body and the soul, u'know. He is in good spirits and good health, he's up and running around with his kids and the canine officer in the back yard, very heartwarming to see!

    +1. It'll take more than a couple of lousy bullets from the gun of a worthless BG to incapacitate a real man like him.
