Twenty years ago today.....

...the North Hollywood shootout changed the face of law enforcement all over the country, leading to the militarization of the police. As a result of the injuries to both police and civilians, law enforcement had to adapt (...into what you see today). For those who aren't familiar...

You have to admit, that was some CAPTIVATING television back in the day. Screw the OJ chase, this was FAR more interesting!

So...I remember when this happened, but I don't remember the details. The video follows two (of five?) perps, first gets gunned down by the big truck (assumed he died), second perp surrenders after shoot out by the white car with open trunk lid.

Questions:
- what happened to the other 3 perps?
- how many perps survived the event?
- sentences?

There were only two perpetrators; neither survived. One died due to the blood loss from gunshot wounds (...if I remember correctly, police officers shot him 29+ times in the legs) and the other committed suicide after being injured.

What was 1997 like? I was born in 2005. Yes, that would make me 12 years old.

It was chill. I had just graduated high school the summer of '96.

Yeah. That sounds about right. I don't remember any trials or anything.

That's gotta hurt - getting shot in the legs 29 times (not that he didn't deserve it).

I remember stories that the police were going to different gun stores to get heavier firepower.

At the time officers didn't have AR's, and their shotguns, .38 Specials, etc. were ineffective. Officers procured semi-automatic rifles from local gun stores just to stand a chance.

The two took phenobarbital before doing this heist. Loaded up with homemade armor and also had modified weapons; full auto. I remember watching this on tv, I was 13

No Dros and 10 day wait?

Second guy committed suicide? I saw him get arrested towards the end of the video. Or no?

One of the defining law enforcement moments of the past 30 years, no question. Crazy stuff that day. Too bad it has contributed to California becoming a complete totalitarian state as far as guns are concerned.

Pretty amazing it didn't result in further loss of life. It's lucky the officers involved were able to get to a nearby gun dealer and raid his inventory for weapons like AR15s to directly counter the threat presented. Won't find that anymore...
