Default Real Sniper, Real bullet proof glass, real return fire.

This video is graphic and has real sound. Sniper attack on a MRAP patrol vehicle. My concern is the return fire. I can see this making headline news as well, the wrong way!

NO, that is NOT an AK you see inside the vehicle.

That guy must be thanking the inventor of bullet proof glass.

What is the problem with the return fire? Will the press in the USA consider it indiscriminate? I would definatley like to keep the head of the sniper down, I wouldn't like another hit on the same piece of glass.

We can't tell if the fire was indiscriminate, but the shaky camera sure makes it seem so. So, yes, I would think that could be seen as objectionable by some.
