'Hollywood Terror' Program

Tue Oct 04, 2005 8:57 am

Last night there was a documentary shown on the Hollywood bank robbery of 1997 that turned into a massive shoot out between the thieves and the cops. The program was so useless I couldn't watch it to the end, I had to go to bed. Adverts every 5 mins and the same quotes repeated over & over.

How did it end up? Did the cops take out the thieves on the scene or what?

Quoting BristolFlyer (Thread starter):

I remember that. They all had assault rifles and the police were using mainly pea shooters.

About mid-way through the shootout, one of the cops realized that one of the robbers was his long lost brother. Upon realizing that, everyone stopped shooting. The two brothers came together and hugged for about a minute or so. It was a pretty touching story.

I think I know the story, the cops went to a gun shop in the neighborhood and borrowed some machine-guns (the civil version of the M-16 IIRC). In the end, the cops busted (or killed?) all thieves.

Is this the Bank Of America shootout? If I recall correctly, both suspects were eventually eliminated, with no loss of life to the officers.

This was the North Hollywood shootout, and what ended up happeneing was the demise of both robbers after they ran out of ammo I believe....though I am not sure.....

A SWAT sniper killed one with a headshot. A few minutes later they got the other in the neck just as he put a 9mm slug into his head

Coz, you remember how when the sniper got his brother the cop yelled out "NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!" for about 20 seconds. Hysterical

Well, he was spanish. So it sounds similar. Agreed though, enough with the drama there Farva. Big difference between "Long lost" and "I banged his wife just before the wedding" type brothers
