Former Marine accused

of downing sheriff’s helicopter in NM or, Stupid is as stupid doed, part dux I blogged on this, HERE, and said B.S. Mea culpa. I was evidently wrong. From the Marine Times...

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A man accused of shooting down a sheriff’s helicopter is a former Marine marksman who said he witnessed the crash and bragged to investigators that it would be no problem for him to “make that shot,” according to sheriff’s records. Jason Kerns, 29, was arrested late Monday. He faces charges of assault with intent to commit a violent felony upon an officer, criminal damage to property and tampering with evidence in the Aug. 6 shooting. Bernalillo County, N.M., authorities said they recovered several firearms from Kerns’ home, including a rifle they believe was involved in the shooting, along with boxes of ammunition.
So, there it is. This asshat shot down a police helecopter. And forgot RULE ONE. (KYMS) I was wrong, thinking it was a pisol shot that was being claimed. i agree with the story that the pilot was DAMNED LUCKY the round hit the rudder peddle. Svengali I ain't Good Night.
