  • Why would you give that mom camera time? She’s nuts.

    Our cops need more training while on camera too.

    Otherwise, great job fire putting those pos’s away!

  • Wow really!! I can not believe how the police had absolutely no control over this situation. The one officer has his backed turned while, the other officer is struggling to put handcuffs on the punk. Who has a dog, which can turn and attack the officer. Then you got these wanna be gangsters, and mother acting out of control, and want to pull the race card, go back to New York with your punk ass son!!

  • Excellent Job And Very Professional Text Book Arrest Performed By HCSO…I Am Sure There Are Many Law Enforcement Agencies That Could Learn Much By Watching And Practicing The Methods Performed By HCSO In This Video.

  • Just because people evaluate situations with a different point of view than that of your most wisest self, does not make them “stupid.” However, pretending to know how someone else would have acted in this situation without knowing these people, that is ignorant. BUT! That’s only my opinion. Cheers.

    Tuesday, 31 March 2015, 3:18 pm
  • If I were walking down the street and a cop stopped and said get down, I most certainly would! Then when there (they think threat is gone) they would handcuff me and question me and I remain calm and explain to them why I was walking down the street. You know just as well as MOST of us, they were not innocent! I am Judging, not by color but by the their records as well as the situation!! I feel most of the people that are against police are the ones getting into trouble! And to say they need to respect us just because we pay them is a bunch of crock….They go out everyday and serve to protect all of us, as little as a dog barking to as big as death! I do beleive in mistakes but THIS WAS NO MISTAKE!

    Tuesday, 31 March 2015, 9:49 am
  • Well first I would not put myself in a situation where the cops would have to”jump out”. However, have I been in situations where I have been questioned by the police on the street. I didn’t open my mouth until ask to and answered every question with respect. Oddly never had any problems. BTW the sheep card is way over used. I would rather be a sheep than a donkey anyday.

    Tuesday, 31 March 2015, 7:54 am
  • I’d like to see what you would do If you were walking down the street and the police hop out on you and see what you would do would you question why or would you just listen without question you my friend are a sheep and beleive that these cops could just make you do whatever they ask of you.

    Tuesday, 31 March 2015, 12:21 am
  • OK so let me see if I understand your comment. You believe the Officers should have gotten out of the car and ask them nicely to get in the back of the patrol cars? So lets go through the facts as the video explains them; A phone call comes into 911 about an attempted break in where an alleged gun was present. So at this point you think the best way to handle this situation is to believe the caller is lying and the Police should take a much gentler approach? Live in a fantasy land do you? In what world do you live in that would not tell those responding officers to be on heightened alert and take all necessary precautions for them ( the officers) to go home to their families? Please give me whatever you are taking that has you in wonderland Alice.

    • Seems like I remember some big mushrooms??

      Tuesday, 31 March 2015, 12:20 am
  • Your talking about take take take what do you mean we pay these officers with our money with our taxes they need to respect us. They aren’t played to jump to conclusions and assume people are guilty because of a phone call they could have as easily came out there vehicles and asked if they could question them because some one claimed there was an incident instead of screaming get on the ground with there teasers waived that’s ridiculous

    Monday, 30 March 2015, 11:13 pm
  • I know my rights, but i also know my responsibilities. Part of that responsibility is to respectful to those that are chosen to enforce our laws. This country is not suppose to be about take, take, take without giving back to it. There are unwritten laws that govern a civilized society that aren’t written anywhere, aren’t taught in a book. They are taught by our parents and elders. When ever you decide to act outside of societies level of acceptable behavior you become no more than an animal.

    Monday, 30 March 2015, 10:47 pm
  • Those of you saying if they were innocent they would have listened to the cops obviously dont know your rights as an American . None of throes cops stated what they were arresting them for they just pulled up and told them to get on the floor. Get on the floor for what? If a cop tells you to jump are you supposed to jump get out of here they had no prior evidence to even arrest these guys. This is bull for sure andfor you saying hood job for arresting these thugs are just ignorant remember there innocent until proven guilty you fools

    Monday, 30 March 2015, 10:24 pm
  • It is not racist to say that someone with $5000 in their pocket is a drug dealer. Please educate yourself on what Racism is and what Personal bias are. However, a young man of that age, dressed like he is, acting like he is with 5K in his pocket regardless of color leaves the door wide open for assumptions. Let alone walking around anywhere with 5K in your pocket is not a smart thing to be doing.

    Monday, 30 March 2015, 7:54 pm
  • The officers did a good job. Some of them need a bit more training. You never let a suspect walk up on you especially with a dog. To the comments about the kid having 5k on him so he must be selling drugs. You don’t know how he got the money. It is very racist to say he must be selling drugs. There are many people in Florida who walk around with that much money in their pockets. Are the old people going to be labeled drug dealers. Are rich people going to labeled drug dealers. Don’t label a young man who happens to be of color a drug dealer. Just because you don’t have that kind of money in your pocket doesn’t mean he can’t.

    Monday, 30 March 2015, 7:40 pm
  • @another minority, most drug dealers don’t let there mom know they are dealing!

  • Bravo Eddie. My daughter as I previously stated was drug involved and I WANT RUNNING TO HER DEFENSE CLAIMING RACIAL INJUSTICE. I WAS THE ONE THAT TURNED HER ASS IN. She was sentenced to 27 mos in prison. She did the boot camp program they have there and was home in 15 mos. Bottom line is there were PLENTY of injustices in the charges against her but I let her fall on her ass and I thank God I did because she is alive and sober today. Maybe all these people screaming how their kids are innocent should shut their moths and open their eyes .The thugs might wake up

    Monday, 30 March 2015, 9:03 am
    • Well said! Thank you for your input!

      Monday, 30 March 2015, 10:42 am
  • All “decent” citizens should support law enforcement, slam the criminal dirt bags hard and fast (whatever race they are) and encourage the authorities to keep up the good work. The ignorance in some of these comments that are anti-police show the level those individuals have sunk to. If they don’t think its fair in America, there are airlines that will take them to Russia. Bye Bye

  • People need to learn the differences between racism and personal biases. Personal bias plays a function in our everyday lives. It is formed from our up-bring, life experiences, interactions with others, what we see and hear everyday of our lives. Personal Biases are often directed toward one individual or several individuals on a per situation basis. Racism is a blanket hatred for an ethnic group as a whole. There are plenty of people that are racist and they usually run in groups because like minded people will seek the approval of those like them, Usually Personal biases are mistaken for racism. Because I don’t like the way you look, walk, talk, dress, act does not make me a racist. What it does is make me a victim of my Personal biases.

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 3:35 pm
    • YUP! But remember personal bias are most often based of one’s personal experiences! I doubt racism will ever die out totally, but it had greatly diminished in this country until people started stirring the pot that does not need stirred! Just let the remaining contents continue to evaporate!

      Sunday, 29 March 2015, 5:40 pm
  • hmmm…well said!

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 2:12 pm
  • First of all if you or a loved one have never been arrested just plz shut your mouth lol because you sound stupid, especially saying good guys dont get cuffed. Theres ppl all around the u.s.a whove done 10 15 20 25 years and just now got found not guilty due to dna evidence . So miss me with that bullshit. As much as half of you know you need to be working in the white house or state attorneys office instead of your micky ds or post office jobs

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 1:32 pm
  • This is typical of people who manipulate situations to fit . It doesn’t matter what race a person is. Its like a child if we ignore this excuse and justification for a behavior eventually it will stop. We allow this . I have a question though what provoked this ? So you have one side saying theses are nice boys, then why did they approach this home to begin with ? Why did they come back twice? I know one thing the only reason you do that , money is owed. Maybe they were trying to raise money for a football league .doubt that. So defense of either party is moot. As far as the race card goes I’m sick and tired if hearing it. I live in Orlando and its predominantly people of color I’m white and I’ll tell you what I am a “victim” of prejudice every day because of it .racism goes both ways .

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 12:29 pm
  • It’s easy to play the race card,, Obama, Sharpton & Holder do it all the time.

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 12:10 pm
  • Probably went up to New York to get the drugs and just got back two days ago

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 11:28 am
    • Sorry, but one does not have to go to NY to get drugs! There are plenty right here already and plenty more in the Tampa area!

      Sunday, 29 March 2015, 11:47 am
  • I’ve heard about these punks they are the type of people to jump kids for there shoes. They sell drugs because the guy who got arrested drives a Maserati smh when you play the race card cause you got CAUGHT

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 11:22 am

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 11:13 am
    • I don’t have personal knowledge of their drug dealing, but you say you do and I believe you! I have seem some of these “kids” around the area and I know they says you can’t judge a book by the cover, but I do not want anything to do with them! It is so sad people are trying again to make this a race thing!

      Sunday, 29 March 2015, 11:43 am
  • It doesn’t have to be blatant and outrageous racism for them to know that the officers were looking at them through racially motivated stereotypes. So to all those saying “Stop pulling the race card”, it is indeed real and it doesn’t feel good to have to believe that people, especially officers of the law, are still so influenced by something like the color of your skin, accent, attire, etc. And maybe the mother reacted like she did because of the most recent encounters between police and minorities. I wouldn’t say that racially tensions are at their best. We(minorities), in Spring Hill, walk around with these fake ass behaviors just to make sure we dont frighten the white people, even if we did nothing wrong. We know what you think about us and a degree, different attire, ect is not going to change any of that.

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 9:16 am
    • You are so wrong! You “know not what you do.” Stop the stereotyping on all fronts! We all need to be AMERICANS not whites, blacks, Latinos, etc. Just AMERICAN wanting to live a crime free unified country!

      Sunday, 29 March 2015, 10:41 am
  • Get over yourself ANOTHER MINORITY . I have TONS of black friends that are respectable hardworking people. As I said I KNOW THAT THE GUN WEILDING IDIOT IS SO SELLING DRUGS SO SICK YOUR HEAD BACK UP UR BUTT AND CRAwL AWAY.

    Sunday, 29 March 2015, 12:43 am
  • For all of you talking without knowing anything about these boys u are ignorant and plain stupid. I agree that they just should have listened to the cops but teenagers dont listen to anyone. Ive lived in spring hill from NY for 7 yrs and there is quite a bit of racism here. All of u questioning his money, worry about you pockets. I know the kid and he doesnt sell. U all assume he sells. If it was a white kid and he had money in his pockets u guys would probably say he works hard for his money. Dont judge or assume someone is something because of what u see. All generations have styles. Wife beaters and pant under your ass is the style now a days. Do i like it no but our parents didnt like our styles either. And arresting the mother for what, rushing to het sons side. please. if it were 5 white kids walking would u all be so quick to judge so negatively

  • This group of guys was much larger than just 5 people! There were atleast 10 of them. They were quickly walking down Harper Street and were only two houses away from the scene when the first officer arrived. They were just a few feet from my backyard. Immediately these guys started with the profanity and yelling. The guy with the dog was definitely the leader of this group of disrespectful guys. This was not a group of friends out for an afternoon stroll! There have been so many burglaries and thefts in our area over the last few weeks, maybe they will slow down now that these guys are behind bars.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 10:07 pm
  • I’m glad the cameras AND MOM were there to capture the entire altercation because those kids would have been treated real bad (like usual) and all those alleged charges would have been FACTS. Therefore, the video clears them of all these outrageous allegations that have NO MERIT. Lastly, if these kids are so THUG why did they have such a well mannered dog and put there HANDS UP and just walking…The most little things are very very important. BYE BYE and go rite ahead and sell me the story that those KIDS deserve to be locked up….SHAME SHAME SHAME….KARMA…I HOPE EACH AND ONE OF YOU GO THRU SOMETHING SO DRAMATIC AND PLEASE UPLOAD THE VIDEO…I will love to see how CALM you all will react. Especially if it is your child!

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 9:57 pm
  • @CATHY, I guess you are also a dirt bag since you allowed your own child to do CRACK and be a thug. But do your homework and stop slandering…none of those kids sell DRUGS…But then again @Cathy let me guess you also think anyone of the color “black” IS A DRUG DEALER….AHHHHHH so @CATHY the BOBO. I must say SHAME SHAME SHAME. Thanks for proving the “RACIAL” point.

    If your CRACKHEAD child was being accused of such accusations….and you as a concerned MOM appear at the scene…DAM sure you will publicly protect your CHILD…so WOMP WOMP TO ALL!

    @SAM now you saying that these kids were involved in other ROBBERIES AT SPRING HILL….let me guess are you a “FART BIAS FOOL!”

    “Oh no you must be highly educated..YEAH RITE! YOU sound like DOODO on a pole! STOP starting FALSE RUMORS….KARMA…I hope you HAVE kids, because you make me SICKO CHICKO!

    And everyone please check yourself—-Why they got to be THUGS because they are walking in a group, 1 white, 3 spanish, 3 blacks and a dog—-OH YEAH, LET ME GUESS YOU ALL @HernandoCounty think that this is ghetto and thugs equal BLACK/MINORITY THUGS—-go figure! whateva….

    Only because there is a white kid it does not mean that this is not a RACIAL ISSUE!

    How do you know the mom did not bail her child out…HERE WE GO AGAIN WITH FALSE COMMENTS…

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 9:42 pm
  • No doubt….I agree but then we have RACIAL BULLSHIT LIKE IN NY AND MISSOURI .Simple ….don’t resist arrest n u won’t get hurt

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 8:22 pm
  • Cop should have knocked the guys teeth out for resisting.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 7:25 pm
  • Great job! That’s what we pay the cops for!

    We now have a black president who is doing a great job cleaning up the last presidents mess. These punks have no excuse anymore.

    Our sheriff might want to up his training these guys were way too nice to those guys.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 6:59 pm
  • He IS A BIG CRACK DEALER. I know that as a fact and his mother goes on there bitching he is being racially profiled. BULLSHIT ….glad the POS wound up behind bars

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 7:34 pm
  • All of you that think the cops are not doing there job correctly then you need to learn and understand the job also the absolute disrespect those kids showed the deputies comes directly from the parents perfect example is that mother that showed up on the scene to harass the deputies instead of disaplining her child for even being involved with that group of kids walking the streets there parents are trash and think and think it ok lol disrespectful assholes

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 6:29 pm
  • When all else fails, act stupid and do not obey the police officers orders.
    Most important PLAY THE RACE CARD.
    Thank you Obama for dividing this country the last 6+ years.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 5:24 pm
  • With the number of violent crimes, shootings, stabbings, and drug arrests in this town… The hcso must react in a serious way in order to take control of a situation before it further escalates. Anyone who watches this video can easily realize that the young men who ere cooperative with the deputies were not asked to get on the ground and were not arrested. When you show up violently at someone’s home threatening their well being, you had better expect the police to take you away (if they get there on time before someone gets hurt) it is their job to protect and serve. If you can’t follow the laws then you’ll face the consequences… Has nothing to do with race take a peek at the hcso arrest record and you’ll see more white than black people.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 5:04 pm
    • YUP! One heck of a lot of druggies!

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 7:33 pm
  • I think it is also to point out that things are different than they are in a big city. As wrong as it maybe (and it is) a group of 5 young men walking together down the street with wife beaters on and pants below your butt cheeks is going to draw a lot of attention here. It is a sad but true fact that there is a different level of social acceptance from where a lot of us come from. Take time to learn from those that have been in this area by asking, watching, and learning. If you think that Spring Hill is bad and Judgmental there are a lot worse areas here in Florida. Move to the bible belt of Northern Florida and you will think this area is a paradise. But understand when you move into a community it is up to you to learn their culture. Same way it would be if I was to move to a big city.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 4:48 pm
  • Ridiculous! Great job HCSO! These deputies didn’t do anything wrong. I think they should have arrested the mom. If the mom thinks her sons innocent then why hasn’t she bailed him out? She should have been sitting in there with him. They are a joke and got there 15 seconds of shame. Thank God RNRF was there taping God only knows what would have been said then. Maybe you should ride with them Tom.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 3:53 pm
    • Agreed

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 4:40 pm

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 3:02 pm
  • No wonder so many people get shot, It’s called resisting arrest and it doesn’t matter what color you are. Bottom Line, Don’t resist arrest and you won’t get shot.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 2:36 pm
  • All of you sound stupid . Judging a situation and dont even.know the situation. If this was done to you , you all would of acted the same way. Maybe if these cops were properly trained to handle a situation they wouldnt get out of.control.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 1:36 pm
    • Please explain what they did wrong?? PS I saw enough to know they resisted arrest!

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 4:43 pm
  • They shoud have locked them all up for acting like immature idiots go back to NY

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 12:38 pm
  • I just want to say nobody wants to be handcuffed or on the ground. Not everyone is bad because someone calls the law on them.2nd if you never did anything wrong keep talk.everyone has done something wrong even those same officers who in force the law you better believe it. Point we all do something wrong.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 12:28 pm
  • I suspect HCSO is also checking the bushes, yards, etc. between the arrest scene and the original crime scene on Belkton for the gun that had been reported! Not a very big area!

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:50 am
  • Good Job HCSO!!!! This county is full of crime..we need someone to protect us from these scumbags…and just for the record there is more white scum than black so get off the racial profiling…take a look at all the pill popping addicts walking around your local Walmart and the daily arrest consist mostly of white people with addictions that are stealing from our stores to feed their addictions, if you don’t like Florida go back to New York…if it so great there then why did you come here to wreck our town? Take some of that negative energy and try to make this place you call your home something productive…I am thankful for our dedicated sheriffs department…they risk their lives choice!!

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:38 am
    • Well said!

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 1:55 pm
  • I suggest the HCSO check their fingerprints against the all the robberies in the surrounding three blocks (BELKTON & GRAPEWOOD) that have occurred in the last couple days! I will bet the HCSO were on the lookout for these guys because they fit the “PROFILE” of the robbers! Good job of “PROFILING” HCSO!!!

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:33 am
    • I left out the robberies on Gainsboro!

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:37 am

    • Sh Sux, I lived in Spring Hill for 23 years. I was there when all the new construction started. It was a nice place to live. Over the years I watched it go from a nice place to raise a family to how the hell do I get my family out of here. I moved back to NY 5 years ago. I have never had a day of regret. I’m not afraid of drive by shootings, home invasions, murders and many other crimes that have become a daily occurrence in Spring Hill. So before you run your mouth about New York, look in your back yard. You obviously have never been to New York and know nothing about it!

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:23 pm
      • Glad you are happy not being here any more!

        Sunday, 29 March 2015, 10:48 am
  • Racial???? The white boy looked like he listened to the Police and just sat down on the curb instead of “taunting” the police.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 10:49 am
  • In my opinion based solely on the video and not knowing the whole situation. They were just walking (which isn’t a crime). However, if an law enforcement officer gives a command one must respect and obey. After a situation as this, they should’ve listened then filed a complaint. I will agree Hernando County is getting out of control. Great job reporting Thomas.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 10:32 am
  • Lets see 5 young strapping men and a pitbull. No gun? still a very lethal weapon with bad intent. Thank god the HCSO got their when they did or we could very well be talking about the loss of a few teenage boys and their dog.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 10:23 am
  • This ridiculous to call the race card if they would have listened to the officers everthing would have went well. SICK AND TIRED OF THUGS ACTING A FOOL THEN GET UPSET WHEN POLICE INTERVIENE. They obviously went to the house to do something although they didnt find a gun doesnt mean they didnt have one

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 10:11 am
  • If the police pull up and surround me, sure I’m gonna be “freaked out” (as said above). I’m going to stop and follow their directions and try to figure out what the hell is going on. If I know I’ve done nothing wrong, I’m not going to be overly worried about being arrested and even if I did get arrested- that’s what lawyers, family, and bail bondsmen are for…I figure once they figure out they got the wrong person, they’ll leave me be. It’s a small price to pay to keep our neighborhoods safe.

    What I’m not going to do is try to run off, scream curse words, claim unfair prosecution, claim discrimination, or struggle and fight with the officer…I know from watching enough cops episodes that behavior like that is only going to make things worse and accomplish nothing.

    When you act like that, the average person will believe you have done something and are trying to get away with it….

    The police are out there risking their lives every day to protect us from criminals, they are human too. Keep your cameras going, if there’s a bad one-they’ll get caught. But, if you act this, don’t expect anyone to believe they are the bad ones…

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 10:04 am
  • I grew up in spring hill n been harassed many of times by law officials…they don’t know what they’re doing, jus recently I had to buy a different car because they profiled mine, kept gettin pulled over for some bs reason n I’m jus tryin to get to work…HCSD is more like a crime syndicate than anything else, got someone scared to even drive to work

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 9:46 am
    • Sounds to me that you reap what you sow. I got a funny suspicion you are nearly as innocent as you claim.

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 10:18 am
  • There are no cops anymore, just ppl with badges thinking they are…and I say that because most don’t even know the law…Now that’s a story to follow, how many cops actually know their job? You’d be surprised

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 9:39 am
  • Let’s remember that whether they were innocent or not the bottom line is THEY STILL DISRESPECTED LAW OFFICERS . BOTTOM LINE . the race card is so much worse since our great leader of this country took off . BELIEVE THAT FACT JACK

  • In my opinion ;
    I’m sorry but if they were profiling , there’s wouldn’t be a white guy detained . Nonetheless, the mother stating that they don’t ” own ” a gun may be accurate . They might have a stolen gun , that’s not registered to them . Also in reference to the opinion stated above , they did get arrested for a reason burglary , and in come circumstances by at least one individual I see a resisting arrest by LEO. And if someone’s house didn’t get burglarized then they would have filed a false report to police and they shall be apprehended as well. The suspects didn’t need to be brandishing a gun for the Law enforcement officers to pull out their weapons , if you arrive at the scene about a burglary and possible gun your not gonna use your finger pistols to protect your self . And also I noticed when the officer just said getting out of his patrol car to get on the ground the one just says ” I don’t have no gun ” correct me if I’m wrong but none of the LEO’S mentioned anything of the gun while they descended from their vehicle . I don’t think it was racial at all , if it was all 7 whites or Mexicans no one would even jump to think to use that card . Not once did I hear them say anything about cocaine either , the suspect was more worried about his money and to not touch him more than anything, and the ” New Yorker ” was proud just to be on “TV” . The mother , is understandable but she wasn’t there in light of the ” victims ” whom ever they were , made the phone call . IF they would have just cooperated they would have been better off , when a officer says get on the ground you don’t bark back ” don’t touch me ” you’re do what you’re told . The gun that was never found could be easily explained . They were walking down the road as LEO arrived they would have hid it in numerous places if it was on their person(s) at any time . They’ll go to court , we will see what the judge says .

    Sad when LEO’s aren’t taken seriously in a situation like this , but for some of you not appreciaiting the cops on here the next time you need help, call a crack or meth head , spring hill is crawling with them. And see how well they apprehended the situation .

  • Once again let’s put the blame on the HCSD for people’s stupid behaviors. Wake up people.

  • He had 5 grand cash on him, but he’s not selling drugs? Who walks around with money like that on them lets be realistic here. If they complied with the deputy’s orders it wouldn’t have went down the way it did but since Obama been in office everything is a race card now…shut up lol.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 2:38 am
    • 100% agree, everything is a race issue. 5K, who has that kind of money unless you are selling drugs or firearms.

    • English please!!??

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:16 am
    • In response to Anonomous source…FYI the correct spelling of the word I believe you’re going for is Anonymous. If you see a little red line under the word that’s a good indication it’s misspelled. In regard to your comment…the facts are all shown out in the video, did you watch it? For the rest of your comment, I actually need to have it interpreted first, I’m waiting for my neighbors 5 year old child to get home to do that before I can respond further. Seriously…who looks stupid? Moral of this story is…stay in school.

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 3:14 pm
  • Great video Tom. At no time did the officers imply that this was a race issue. The officers responded to a call and it was their job to investigate all those involved. So why is it a race issue? They were the perpetrators and they happened to be black. If you break the law it doesn’t matter if they’re black, white, or pink with purple polka dots…if you’re guilty, you’re guilty! How can the mother speak out and defend her son when she wasn’t even there? It doesn’t matter how many days he’s been in the county, if he surrounds himself with criminals and chooses to join them in a crime, he’s just as guilty. You can’t threaten people and come back later with more people to carry out you threats and not expect to arrested, or at the very least be questioned by the authorities. If they don’t like Hernando County, please be our guest and move! I feel the officers did a satisfactory job in that they prevented the incident from escalating, however; in my opinion they did not have control of the situation. If it would had involved thugs that were carrying weapons it could of had a much different outcome. I think the officers needed to take better control of scene, they needed to separate the men involved, and the mother needed to be completely removed from the scene. It was obvious she was inciting and provoking the situation. In watching the video you could clearly see a couple of the officers that appeared to only aimlessly wander around, they did little or nothing to assist the officers that were attempting to control the scene. I recommend that the Sheriff review this video, and I suggest he implement future trainings for these exact kind of situations, before another occurs, as next time it could have an entirely different outcome. I do applaud the officers that did take down the men, one even with a pit bull in his face…that took real guts! Thanks to Tom and his great video this hopefully can be used as a teaching tool, and for those of us citizens…we can see that Spring Hill is not what it used to be. 🙁

  • Would not have a problem if you obey the law. There was nothing that proved racial profiling. Who called the cops to begin with? Were they black? Hmmm guess they are racist too. SMH

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 1:18 am
  • I agree enough with the racial profile nonsense. You try to pul the race card line a get out of jail free card. How about obeying the law then you would have a problem. Good job HCSO

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 1:14 am
  • Great Job our HCSO officers did in controlling a very chaotic situation. This doesn’t appear to have anything about race and all about following instructions given by Law enforcement. It amazes me how even when faced with video evidence people can be blinded by their biases. The mother here certainly shows why her child reacts they way he did to get himself in cuffs. If that would have been my mama the police would have had to protect me from her. Next time when an officer gives you instructions you do what you are told to do. If you don’t agree with his instruction so what just do as ask and fight it out in court later. If you are right then you will be cleared in court. All you did is embarrass yourself and your family by your behavior.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 12:24 am
    • AMEN!

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:12 am
  • Sad, when police are afraid to do thier job because they are being labeled as racist. There was no control over the situation because of fear of being portrayed wrongly in front of the camera. Sad state this country is in when thier is no respect anymore for law enforcement.

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 12:23 am
  • Haha guy says im from new york. Good for you buddy what do you want a medal or my condolences

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 12:15 am
  • Also was the maranda rights ever said. Watch it over

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 12:12 am
    • Since when does “YOUR RIGHTS READING” happen before getting the situation under control?? I’m quite sure they have been read to them now!

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:11 am
    • P.S. Miranda NOT maranda!

      Sunday, 29 March 2015, 9:41 am
  • They should have arrested every single one of them, including that mother for interference with LEO!! HCSO showed GREAT RESTRAINT! Thanks Tom Lemons

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 12:07 am
  • A guy threatens to shoot you what do u do confront the person or go to tlk to them or handle the situation in ur own manner that guy saying that you have a gun to the police with no shirt on sneakers and jeans made the police react the way they did 7 people got arrested for no reason really law enforcers u people have your point of view but you guys does not actually know the truth behind it all pull up on people and the people freak out why are u doing this to me u kno there not criminals and does not diserve that and at the end no gun was found so that must have u think huh its so rediculous basically just grab the person ur near huh deputies the guy was pleading that he was from new york hes innocent the other one had a dog they put there hands up searched them and nothing seriously pointless arrest fellas when theres actually people killing and getting raped etc smh

    Saturday, 28 March 2015, 12:07 am
    • If the young men would have followed the orders of the LEO’s first and foremost this wouldn’t be an issue. If someone threatens to shoot you call the police and let him get into trouble. Don’t take the law into your own hands. Again, cause and effect, we can break down this whole situation once the facts come out but at the end of the day, this young men made Bad decisions that now has an affect on the rest of their lives.

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 9:39 am
  • I would of done the same thing. I am with the mother. SHE IS SSKING QUESTUONS AND NO ANSWER!!!! SND THE REASON THE TEENSGER WAS MORE REFUSING IS CAUSE THST VOP MAURER TOUCHED THE MOTHER. Didn’t YOU ALL see the COP pulled out the gun first. Are you all blind!!!!!!!! This is racial profiling cause the teenagers are pUTTING Their hands up and tHEY still want to pull out their weapons to shoot someone. So If the cop would of shoot one of these teenagers MIND U WITH NO GUN !!!!!!!!!!!! THEN U ALL WOULD OF SAID GOOD JOB HSCO U IGNORANT FOOLSSS!!!!!! IF IT WAS OUT OF CONTROL IT WAS because LOOK HOW THE FREAKING COPS APPROACHED THEM. ANALYSE BEFORE COMMENTING PEOPLE!!!!! WE ARE HUMANS GOOD OR BAD REMEBER THAT!!!!!¡!!

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 11:40 pm
    • It was a taser, moron, not a gun. And writing in all caps doesn’t get your point across any better, but correct spelling might. Everyone there was out of control and that officer had every right to utilize his taser and did not. “REMEBER” that.

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 6:50 am
    • Skipped a few english classes did we?

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 9:31 am
      • A FEW? reads like all of them!

        Saturday, 28 March 2015, 1:07 pm
    • In response to Really People…I suggest you go back to school before commenting, or were you attempting to write in another language? Just saying.

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 2:53 pm
    • I DO live in Spring Hill and to those that would try to make this another Ferguson, I can tell you with 100% certainty that it will not happen. Not in my town. You want to start defending thugs and criminals with cries of racism? Go right ahead but it will NEVER turn into the chaos that Ferguson became. The video is quite clear and you do not need a gun to have committed a crime nor attempted to commit one. The police did their job with remarkable restraint and that mother is just the typical mentality that perpetuates thug behavior.

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 6:34 pm
  • They so sell drugs I’ve heard about those punks

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 11:40 pm
  • Excellent job HCSD,keep up the good work.Thanks!

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 11:39 pm
  • First…no car was hit the mom would have gotten arrested, “Come On!” Secondly…it is racial. Furthermore, It is always the typical “DONT GET IT” characters, that are quick to prompt the “Stop the race card!”

    None of these minors or young kids are bad guys! But ofcourse…since noone really knows the past events that led the young men to act in frustration against the HCSO they are all painted as “BAD GUYS” whateva! How can individuals be accused of robbery and having a gun…when no apparent break in is seen or no GUNS were found! If good guys don’t get handcuffed @kelly then explain the obvious BS that was caught on tape.

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 11:33 pm
    • Ha ha, they are a bunch of hoods. If they had nothing to hide, then when they were told to get on the ground why didn’t they? They average person would have done so even if they did nothing wrong just to prevent any further confrontation. I realize HCSO can also be a bunch of cowboys, without a doubt. And perhaps they over reacted, however, my point is it was certainly not racially motivated. I’ve been witness to rough and unwarranted abuse by HCSO on white kids so the race card is out.

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 9:01 am
    • Are you blinded by your biases or just have a comprehension problem? No on said the mother hit anyone with her car. It was said that she almost did with her reckless driving to get to the scene. ” How can individuals be accused of robbery and having a gun”? you ask. Like this,” Hello 911, I have group of men at my door trying to kick it in and I believe I seen one of them with a gun”. See how easy it is to accuse someone of robbery and having a gun. Asd far as it being racial please prove your comment, because they young men were given far more respect then they were showing the officers.

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 9:29 am
  • The camera heightens the drama. It’s “Show Time.”
    Not a good idea to pull up and park in the middle of it.
    Fuel to the fire. Folks act out more on camera, you know that’s so.
    Glad no one was hurt.
    Glad that we don’t live in Spring Hill.

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 11:04 pm
    • Glad you don’t live here too!

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 11:01 am
      • Your comment is not necessary.

        Saturday, 28 March 2015, 2:43 pm
        • Heck, I was just expressing I was also GLAD for her!

          Saturday, 28 March 2015, 4:47 pm
  • To say that this was racially motivated is ridiculous. There was nothing racial about this. I know Spring Hill very well. There are many criminals and they are equal in race. Hernando County is filled with bad guys. HCSO is just doing their job. STOP WITH THE RACE CARD, IT”S GETTING PLAYED OUT! And let’s keep in mind, good guys don’t get handcuffed.

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 10:37 pm
    • Very well said 🙂

      Saturday, 28 March 2015, 3:43 pm
  • It was scary to see all of this happen right outside my front door. I was a witness to all of it from the moment the first officer arrived. The suspects ignored all orders from the police officers from the very beginning. I’d love to know why the mother wasn’t charged with anything. She nearly hit multiple cars on the way to the scene and I know for a fact that one of the drivers called 911.

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 10:35 pm
  • That was great video .however in my opinion it did look like hcso did NOT have very good control of the situation . People were scrambling around everywhere and the one guy refused to go to the ground . Glad it didn’t escalate into something more

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 10:15 pm
  • Good job HCSO, Good reporting Tom.

    Friday, 27 March 2015, 10:14 pm
    • YUP! Please keep following this one Tom!
