fugitive who spent five days on the run in New Mexico before dying in a weekend shootout with police left behind a vehicle containing explosives and questions about his possible links to anti-government groups, according to local authorities and published reports.

Rex Michael Sherwood, 48, was found dead Sunday in a gas station in Dulce, N.M., on the Jicarilla Apache reservation, after a gunfight with police.

It was Sherwood’s second violent confrontation with local law enforcement in a week, said Jake Arnold, a spokesman for the Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Office. On July 10, he exchanged gunfire with tribal police who pulled him over for failing to use his turn signal. After leading the officers on a 10-mile chase, he abandoned his Ford delivery truck and fled into the woods, Arnold said.

Sherwood resurfaced early Sunday, according to local news reports, when tribal police responding to a reported break-in at a Dulce gas station and convenience store came under fire from inside. After a lengthy standoff, during which the tribal officers were joined by state police, FBI agents and officers from other local agencies, a remote-controlled robot entered the building and detected the body of a single gunman lying on the floor.

1. Makes you wonder if it was self inflicted or one of the cops got him

We're going to see more of this.

Over at YouTube you can feel the anger brewing at the Republicans for putting up Mitt.

Some of the extremists think the GOP has let them down and they have no choice but to declare war.

AFTER they stock up on beer....

5. Typical idiot.

He could have pulled money headed for Zimmerman if he played his cards right.

But noooooo, he knew a conviction would mean he'd lose his guns and that would mean life wouldn't be worth living.

So his best friend, his gun, and him would always be together in that great shooting range in the sky....
