Gate breech at NAS JAX

Detailed news is spotty right now. Gate barriers were deployed. 1 person got zipped up in a body bag. They have not said how this person died. Those gate barriers will do a number on a vehicle. The dead trespasser had no military affiliation.

So mental illness or religion of peace?

Guessing it was the actual barrier (at high speed) that sent this idiot to their maker? Although the guards carry weapons, as far as I know, they are NOT allowed to use them without specific authorization from the CO of the bases.

Story I heard was the guy was involved in a hit and run and was fleeing the scene. Took the wrong road.
Could be pure BS, but someone I know works at the base.

Doesn't seem to be a reason to lose your life over this sort of mistake.
Our new national Sheriff just had a case where a guy that had recently been released from prison was involved in a hit and run on I-4.
He then drives off the interstate and runs to a nearby gas station. The story has a lot of irony for this poor soul (or sole in his case).
He's chased off by a woman who sprays him with gas, then another local uses his CCW to dissuade him, it goes on until he was captured back on I-4. Lucky for him people didn't run him over.
But you ask who would run from a hit and run accident, lots of people. How dumb do you have to be to try to enter a military installation, even dumber.
The real question, will his family sue for wrongful death.
