I didn't really read the news in depth, but, the manhunt guy has all sorts of crazy illegal weapons? How in the world did he managed to get those? I am sure they don't sell those in WallMart.

Is this what you are talking about? Ex-cop and armed forces member going on a rampage? If not then.... goddamn.

He's an ex cop so I imagine it wouldn't be hard to acquire weapons and given that he's in the US, you can pretty much buy assault rifles at your local gun show and Walmart, so I wouldn't be surprised.

But even SWAT don't have rocket launchers. Like he has military connection or something?

The SWAT don't use rocket launchers because they don't need rocket launchers. Do you really think a highly trained police team would have rocket launchers in the budget when there is a .00001% chance they will need it?

Unless they are up against criminals in tanks and attack choppers, they won't need it.

Also the guy is ex-military I believe, so military and criminal connections do seem likely. I really hope they catch him, while I can see what pushed him to the edge, he needs to be put down so innocent people and cops can stop getting hurt.

Not really. The Zetas began from military personnel who were trained by the US, a very few people as a matter of fact. The crude submarines, heroine and Kalashnikovs come from Russia and Afghanistan respectively. The cocaine from South America. Only members of one cartel was trained by the US and they are the Zetas.
