Brian Nichols! It's been 5 years since dude went on his two day killing spree. For those not familiar with it. He was in court on trial for a rape charge, while he was in the holding cell of the courthouse he overpowered a female deputy, took her gun and went HAM! He shot that deputy (she survived), went to a courtroom and killed a judge (who would be presiding over his trial) and a courtroom reporter. Once he left that courtroom he saw another deputy and murked him. Then he went a GTA like spree and carjacked a few cars while a manhunt went down. This was on a Friday, so schools were on lockdown (I happened to be out that day) and everybody was calling each other swearing I seen that dude walking down the street. The next day he still hadn't been found, but an ICE agent was found dead at an unfinished house (Nichols murdered him on Friday night). Eventually, he was turned in by a woman he had taken hostage and the city of Atlanta could breathe again. Those were two crazy days in my city.
