100 Swiss Cops vs. 67 year old guy with gun

"After holing up in the house Wednesday, Kneubuhl opened fire at police early Thursday and then successfully fled even as police surrounded the house.

Some 100 police officers including SWAT teams, dog handlers and a helicopter equipped with heat-detecting cameras have been deployed to search for the man."

...the left side of my brain completely melted... and the right side responded, "Clearly, these cops have been eating too much cheese."

We cannot afford governments that cannot afford to take care of our veterans.

Super. Perhaps NATO (US and UK included) should be recruiting more 67 year old men with guns. ;D ;D
When you get to that age, you don't give a **** about anything anymore.
I escaped. Now in Sunny Cyprus

Sorry mate, but your Irena without a firearm is far more dangerous and scarey when she goes off on one than you.  Even if you were armed like a fully equipped Apache helicopter, she would be by far a greater threat to life and limb.  :D :D :D

Our 68 year old fire fire, cold arms and close combat instructor in military academy, kicked my 18-19 year old (arrogant, but pretty good) butt in almost everything.  True, he was a legend (some of the things he could do, you can only watch in movies).  But he still was 68 and I was 18.

It appears the problem is the swiss police aren't issued the most effective weapon/tool in the swiss buttock nal- The Swiss Army Knife.  100 police officers and not 1 between them, no wonder grandpa was too much for them. How can you expect them to do their job being so poorly equipped. I mean helicopters with heat detection? Dog handlers? What are they supposed to do with that?  :P
