Explosives Found in Capitol Hill Gunman’s Truck

Explosives Found in Capitol Hill Gunman’s Truck

National Terror Alert

Explosives have been found in the impounded pickup truck driven by the man discovered carrying a loaded shotgun on Capitol Hill last month, U.S. Capitol police told FOX News.

Michael Gorbey, 38, of Rapidian, Va was arrested in late January, and at the time police said there was a suspicious substance in his green pickup truck parked near the corner of North Capitol and D streets in Washington, D.C.

The truck was impounded at the Government Printing Office garage on Capitol Hill, not far from where the incident unfolded.

Police executed a search warrant Friday.

Kimberly Schneider, a police spokeswoman, said Gorbey could face additional charges.

I'm tired of these looney lefty hippies who can't fight their way out of a paper bag!
They have to blame the President for everything because that's the media has spoonfed us.
But look at the god awful people in congress and the senate and in his own cabinet who've got him going in circles.
I think anyone would have trouble with those nuts.

In '73 or '74 we had a breach by one of those 'protester' types who made it 300' from the main gate to the reactor containment dome on foot where he got the living shit kicked out of him by the pipefitters working out side. The local media made a big issue over the incident of the pipefitters brutality, but that caused an awful lot of misery on everyone working there with the tightened security and the extra shakedowns. The goon mentality of the authorities is to punish us all with the ACLU exempting the real culprits, you see it at every airport security entrance, in the couthouses and even at the post offices. I'm sick of paying the price for them, it's time for some street justice!!! That includes the media too. If they are present at the sight of an altercation you can bet your ass they are directly or indirectly complicit.

Lynn I agree, Bush is not perfect, I have been very angry at him about a lot of things. But when it comes to fighting back at least he wanted to fight the terrorists unlike Bill Clinton.
The hate from the left is shocking to me and how they keep it going.

Jack thanks for sharing about that, your right about how they make everyone pay with more security and shakedowns.
