May 20, 2010 was going to be ‘just’ an office day for Arkansas Game and Fish conservation officer Michael Neal. Up most of the night working a second job to make ends meet, Mike was looking forward to a relaxing day. When he got back into his Game and Fish truck at 11:45 AM, multiple radios were buzzing with “Officer Down” – the call no law enforcement officer wants to hear.
Two West Memphis, Arkansas police had been shot and killed during a traffic stop by a father and son team of dangerous sovereign citizens. The suspects were spotted by two sheriff deputies in a Wal Mart parking lot. The suspects shot both deputies, critically wounding one. The escape was stopped by Michael Neal, who rammed their vehicle at 55 mph, getting into a deadly shootout at seven feet with both suspects. This is a chilling story you absolutely don’t want to miss.
Below are pictures and videos of Mike’s fateful day. Watch the videos with discretion – they are very intense for younger readers.
