Most so called Hero's are poor unfortunate souls who have bought into someone else's selfish agenda.
For a good example of "stupid heros" look no further than Pat Tillman or the losers who sign up for the military.
Most people who are refered to as heros could not hold a candle up to Bucky.
History will eventally exonerate Bucky and he will be given the recognition that he truly deserves.

Apparently you don't know the true definition of a hero and, possibly, you're getting it confused with the definition of a turd. I suspect that you are most likely a criminal yourself and therefore biased towards those public servants who are sworn to protect the lives and liberties of turds like Phillips and yourself.
My definition of a "Dumb Turd" is someone like "Pat Tillman"

The funny thing is all u jerk offs talk about how terrible cops r and how u hate them but if it wasn't for cops most of u would have been beaten, robbed, raped and killed by now. Along with ur wives, mothers and children. There would be complete chaos. U can say how u would never let that happen but there is always somebody bigger and badder than u. U want child molesters and rapists running the streets? Cause they would be if it wasn't for law enforcement. Who would u call if somebody broke into ur house at night and raped ur wife at gunpoint? The cops? O wait no....they r scum. Ignorant aholes. God bless the police who keep us safe.

10-4 on the Pat Tillman as a "Dumb Turd".
If there were a 21st century "Dumb Shit" award it would have to go to Tillman hands down.
George W. Bush a close second.

They only gave the man a "life sentence without possibility of parole" because he made such absolute FOOLS of the pigs. Otherwise, he would've gotten "25 years to life".

What was it Judge Kloch said? "The world will quickly forget you as you spend the rest of his life in prison, but long will the state trooper you killed be remembered."
Well, here's Bucky on the FRONT PAGE... and i swear i don't remember the cop's name!!!
Bucky warned those bully keystone cops to NOT mess with his family in their attempts to try and draw him out. Warned them more than once. But they just couldn't resist, since they couldn't figure out a way to catch a man who was almost literally right under their noses.
Run, Bucky! Run!

I agree with most every thing said about Bucky Philips. We need more men of such stature snd intestinal fortitude.

How on earth did this stupid indian get the name Phillips.
It should be "Man of Many Rattles".
Or maybe "Shoots arrow in the back Joe".
How about "Lives in the woods Wille"
More like "Coward of many ass faces"

The manhunt took place over a rural several 100 miles. You cannot simply "flush" him out of the woods with dogs. That may have been one of the most ignorant comments I have ever read. Phillips was obviously gifted at surviving and hiding, making finding him difficult. He wasn't just hiding around his daughter's house. He was breaking into houses and being housed by people as well. Bradley Horton was a man in his twenties who should have known not to drive half a mile with a police officer being dragged behind him, helplessly. The trooper saw his own life in danger. Honestly, what person wouldn't do what they had to, even if it meant shooting the person who was threatening his life, in order to survive? And don't for a second think that officer isn't still coping with the fact that he killed a man. Just because a person is in a uniform doesn't mean they don't have fears, and emotions like the rest of us. Horton was a 25 year old white male, much different in appearance than Phillips who is native american and was in his 40's. And that most likely would sell a lot of NYTimes papers because negative press sells better than positive. You don't know half of the things police officers sacrifice and do for this state because it doesn't make a good story for the six o'clock news.
you're a cop right? and you know right? half the bull police sacrifice you hide behind the scenes to stand for them 80% of our cops don't do there jobs and they're very nasty to society not just in the judicial system they think with their cocks and not their brains and not for nothing very &#128546; that the good ones go down because the bad &#9757;'s dont do it right the first time smh....
