The FBI backed up Anchorage, Alaska police back in September when some jerk barricaded himself, allegedly with weapons, after his girlfriend’s mom called the cops on him. The cops were tied up in a standoff with some other jerkwad, so the Bureau sent its team to get the accused woman-beater. He didn’t come easily, and the news story makes it sound like it was a completely professional takedown.
It didn’t look quite that way. A neighbor shot video, and it’s ugly. Make that fugly.
It’s real life, but it looks more like an FBI buddy comedy with Jack Black and Seth Rogen as bozo Bureau SAs. It justifies the coining of a new word: “Stackass.” These guys are to CQB and warrant service what Bubba is to building heirloom firearms.
At the first viewing, you may have been focused on the stumblebum trying to get through a typical Alaskan (“up here, bears are brown”) home door. Without making sure of his footing. Causing a painful-looking faceplant in the frontal aspect of the Hummer. But the real Keystone aspect to it is watching all his buddies (who taught them to stack in random places?) muzzle him.
Now we understand why Anchorage PD only calls the FBI when their own guys are maxed out. Good policy.
