(Raw Story) Police arrested a self-described “sovereign citizen” accused of shooting at police and firefighters after setting fire to a trash bin in Dallas.
Emergency crews responded to the dumpster fire about 3 p.m. Monday, when the man opened fire on officers.
Police said the gunman, who was the subject of a missing persons report filed that afternoon, threatened a babysitter who retreated into a nearby home with an 8-year-old girl.
No one was wounded by the gunfire, which struck a fire engine in the area.
Police said the man, identified as 60-year-old Douglas Leguin, called 911 to say he was part of the anti-government sovereign citizen movement.
Investigators said the man apparently set the Dumpster fire and called in the missing persons report as part of a planned ambush on officers.
Hey, look at that, a white man (I checked other news reports, he’s white) fired a gun at police officers and bystanders and the police didn’t fucking gun him down in response. In the same week that two black teenagers WITHOUT loaded firearms were killed by police for “threatening them.”
