The Barrett M107 .50-caliber long-range sniper rifle is a firearm made for the modern war on terrorism. While Barrett’s reputation of “flawless reliability” has made the M107 the sniper weapon of choice, the rifle is just like any other essential tool: It often breaks when you need it most.

A witness viewed the site from several hundred yards away because the US military said that continued fighting prevented reporters or independent investigators from getting close.

Authorities said it happened in 30 seconds: A throng of up to 60 juveniles mobbed a Bay Area Rapid Transit train Saturday in Oakland and mugged passengers. At least two people were injured and required medical attention.
