Well, it turns out that the threatened guerilla war didn't live up to its billing in the manifesto . True, the man could shoot well ... and some jerks made a folk hero of him ( sad ) .

Had he known anything about military strategy, he'd have known Mao's concept of a guerilla as a fish that swims in a sea consisting of a sympathetic populace .

He used his own truck, a vehicle known to LAPD . He apparently had no accomplices, no bunker, no secret storage bin, no spare vehicle, no clear plan of attack, no forward-deployed supplies, no escape plan and he gave up some of the element of surprise via the manifesto .

He ran to a desolate area where he could be surrounded and cut off .

He was stopped with conventional police work despite everyone's fear that his knowlege would keep him one step ahead of law enforcement .

His actions were short on planning and long on improvisation . In the end, he apparently fell victim to the same sort of CS-induced fire that killed 6 SLA members in the seventies . So much for being able to counter known police tactics .

They should make a movie out of this . Title it " Rambozo " . ( LOL)

If the police ever face a trained man like this again, I hope they use SAW gunners to pin him down with fire superiority while snipers and riflemen nail him with aimed fire . And no more risking cops' lives to take such a suspect alive ; vaporize the cabin with a missile from a gunship or use an AT-4 .

The LAPD owes a debt. of gratitude to the fallen North Hollywood bank robbers, Kevin Phillips and Emil Matasanaru ( SP? ) , without whose efforts they would not have rifles in their patrol cars . ( LOL) See YouTube if you can't remember that shootout .

By and large, the police responded promptly, professionally, bravely and sensibly to this unprecedented situation . They guarded the prime targets, posted the reward offer, set up the tip line, tirelessly searched Big Bear and used rifles when possible . They controlled sensitive information . They didn't let the fear of an unseen enemy demoralize them .

This was not simply a war on the LAPD -- It was an attack on every American . A few policemen paid the ultimate price for defending us .
