GERMAN RAMBO IS A REAL THING, WITH MANHUNT IN THE BLACK FOREST NEAR BORDER WITH FRANCE
So how can this be happening? I remember seeing the movie Rambo for the first time and it was quite the big deal. Small town hick politics. 80’s continuing rejection of hippy culture. And the incredibly awkward niches only some American veterans of the Vietnam War were able to find. So, Rambo. They drew first blood. And yet, now, decades later, we have news that a real-life Rambo is running (not so scared) in the Black Forest in Germany. Police are currently trying to hunt him down. So again, how can this be happening? The German Rambo even has a bow and arrows, too! And the helicopter with the side mount lookout, to boot.
GERMAN RAMBO GOT THE DROP OF 4 OFFICERS, DISARMED THEM AND ESCAPED TO THE FOREST
The manhunt was on as of yesterday. Local authorities launched it in the town of Oppenau, which is only about 16 miles away from the border with France. The German Rambo’s name is Yves Rausch. He’s 31 years old and was wearing camouflage gear. On Sunday, or yesterday at the time of this writing, he disarmed 4 police while brandishing a handgun. When someone disarms multiple police officers, that makes them extremely dangerous. And police issued a warning to all in the area, “Beware!… The wanted man has several guns!” Yikes. But all locals have also received word not to pick up any hitchhikers, either. Just imagine.
LOCALS SHOULD NOT PICK UP HITCHHIKERS, OR ANYONE CARRYING A BOW AND ARROW, LIKE GERMAN RAMBO
So it’s not clear yet what this man’s background is. But we know he has a history with illegal firearm possession, as well as other offenses. But when police tracked him down, they had no idea how serious things were going to get, in an instant. The German Rambo seemed calm and cooperative. But in a blink he had a gun out, aimed at the 4 officers. So keep an eye on this story. It will either end fast, or we will be held in suspense for days. As we learn more about this German Rambo, we’ll hear if he has Green Beret skills, too. But for all involved, let’s hope not.
