James Boulware - Dallas Police Department

The man who launched an early morning attack on the Dallas Police headquarters has a history with law authorities, causing a lockdown  in 2013 after threatening to kill his family and shoot up schools and churches near Paris, Texas.

A man who identified himself as James Boulware, 35, was reportedly shot and killed by police this morning after launching an attack on police headquarters from a heavily armored van — described by its manufacturer as a “Zombie Apocalypse Assault Vehicle and Troop Transport” — firing on police cruisers and leaving bombs in the parking lot.

In 2013 , Boulware was involved in a family argument, choking his mother and assaulting his uncle, before going to his brother’s house in Paris, where he took multiple weapons, ammo, and body armor, according to KXII.

Later, during a “face time” call over the Internet, he threatened to kill all of the adult members of his family, as well as making a vague threat about schools or churches along the way.

Boulware was later apprehended after police launched a full scale manhunt. His case was dismissed in April 2014 after he fulfilled several court-ordered conditions.

In the police report, Boulware’s mother said that her son “frequently talks to himself and appears delusional.”

In conversations with police, conducted as authorities attempted to negotiate with his this morning, Boulware complained that police had previously called him a terrorist and had taken his son.

“The suspect has told our negotiators that we took his child and we accused him of being a terrorist and that he’s going to blow us up,” Dallas Police Department Chief David Brown said.

According to Heavy, Dallas court documents state the Boulware’s mother was recently granted custody of his 11-year-old son. Heavy also notes that Boulware may have had mental issues, writing rants on a Dallas County judge’s Facebook page, espousing multiple conspiracy theories including  the North Koreans, the Russians, and the killing of Bin Laden.

NBC5 is reporting that Boulware’s mother said, “We’ve been dealing with this for a long time. I’m glad nobody else was hurt.”

According to CBS11 Dallas, Boulware’s father said his son was angry after the custody battle with his mother because his ex-wife is in prison. He also stated that his son bought the van recently, thinking he might have to live in it someday.

The van, was reportedly purchased on Ebay and was described as a “Zombie Apocalypse Assault Vehicle and Troop Transport.”

From the manufacturer’s Facebook description, according to the Dallas Morning News:

“Zombie Apocalypse Assault Vehicle and Troop Transport. This full armored zombie busting vehicle features convenient gun ports so no zombie juice touches you during a mass zombie take down. It also has benches in the back so you can take turns resting during long Zombie sieges. The tactical step boards are installed for when you only need swords and axes for drive by mow downs. The bumpers are made of reinforced steel tubing, so no dents from smashing zombie heads! It’s full armor plated and has bullet proof windows just in case you run into other zombie hunting hordes who might try to take this bad boy from you. Like anything, there is a price attached to this fine piece of zombie fighting machinery.”

Published

on

President Donald Trump spent some of his time at his Ohio rally Saturday, saying that under his leadership, the military has developed a secret hydrosonic missile.

There's just one problem: Hydrosonic is a toothbrush.

The Hydrosonic Pro is a Curaprox product that boasts "ultra-fine, gentle CUREN® filaments."Hypersonic missiles are weapons that can travel at 17 times the speed of sound and Navy warships will be outfitted with them. Trump also seems confused about the facts, saying that the missile travels at five times the speed of normal missiles.

One Pennsylvania polling place fell under a full out attack on those standing in line to vote and trying to cast a ballot on Saturday.

In a Twitter thread, Behavioral Economist Alex Imas explained that while he was casting his ballot on the outskirts of Philadelphia County, PA Saturday, a parade of semis and other cars surrounded the polling place, laying on their horns.

"I arrived just as polling place opened. Short line. Thought I'd be in and out in 20 minutes tops. Even w/ this short line, it took 2+ hours," he explained.

"Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd," he continued. "A motorcade of semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs)."

Trump gives 9/11 first responders back the $3.3 million he took from health fund: GOP Congressman

Published

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told Rep. Peter King (R-NY) announced that the 9/11 first responders would get the $3.3 million back that President Donald Trump stole from the program that helped them with medical treatments.

Those at the Twin Towers site in the days following the terrorist attacks breathed in a series of toxic gasses and asbestosis, leading them to have a slew of health problems years later. A fund was set up to ensure that those heroes were always taken care of for the rest of their lives as they suffered through their final years.

“It’s a great victory for really deserving people,” King told the New York Daily News Saturday. "I mean this just never should have happened, but we fought hard, we got it done."
