Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 26, 2020

San Luis Obispo Sheriff's Office news release: The Sheriff's Office is releasing new information in the officer involved shooting which occurred on 9-24-20 in Templeton. The suspect in that incident has been identified as 38-year-old Christopher Michael Straub of Templeton. Straub had a significant criminal history having been booked 28 times into jails all across California including two incarcerations in state prison. Straub was a known member of a white supremacist gang and a criminal investigation had already been initiated by the Sheriff's Gang Task Force when this incident occurred. Multiple weapons were discovered afterwards in Straub's vehicle including four assault rifles, one bolt action hunting rifle, one shotgun, two handguns plus the handgun he used to shoot at Deputies. After a search warrant was served on his residence, it was discovered he was illegally manufacturing parts for weapons. Straub was a wanted felon and it is illegal for felons to possess any weapons. The Deputy in this incident has been identified as 34-year-old Richard "Ted" Lehnhoff. He was wounded in the leg during a gun battle with the suspect in the Templeton cemetery. He was airlifted to a local hospital to receive medical attention. He underwent surgery on his leg last night. He is recovering and is in stable condition.

Take a close look at the picture in that article. He has at least two rifles with a sniper-style setup. There is what looks like a ghillie suit in the top left corner. It also looks like he had some lower receivers. Either he was illegally manufacturing firearms, or was modifying them to full auto (or effectively full-auto bump-stock style).

I can't tell exactly what it is, but there is either a spotlight or small drum magazine on the bottom left that says "---- ALL COPS" on it. I'm guessing this guy wasn't planning on hunting deer with any of this stuff.

You idiots didn't read the article, as usual. This guy wasn't going to be voting for anybody.

"This guy wasn't going to be voting for anybody."

He opted for Sarah Palin's Second Amendment remedies instead.

I can show him today. Buy them legally and don't shoot at cops. So simple, even you can understand it.

Terrorists are nearly always right wingers, so there you go..

You ------ cling to guns like flies to the remains of your brothers' carcass.

Who the hell is cheering for police shootings? If you seriously believe that we human rights advocates are cheering for police shootings, you are applying a strawman to justify dangerously deranged anger.

Nobody noted that he had some of the larger bore lowers to construct ARs that can shoot accurately over great distances and be chambered in up to Barrett 50 cal.

If you're not aware those are capable of stopping trucks and trains with a single shot.

This guy was really getting ready for a race war.

Those cops are lucky he only used a handgun.

If it was so simple why didn't he understand it? He looks pretty simple.

Why? Because he was convinced otherwise.

The words of our elected officials matter.
