  • Change has to begin with action on everyone’s part. I believe ALL lives matter, white, black, purple, yellow, law ALL! I came from an area that wasn’t all that great but it was about everyone pulling together and running off those folks who tried to run down our neighborhoods, standing up for our neighbors, standing beside our law enforcement and public service officials. Some of you above are saying the police target you…come on really? A statement like that sounds like you have targeted them and yet you also are the first to call and say “get down here, stop wasting my time and get down here and do your job” . DO their job?? Their job is not to help you and like any job you have to know what tools and situation you’re approaching in order to get the job done right so by saying “stop asking questions” isn’t helping. Instead maybe only call with it’s an actual critical situation dispute. Maybe instead take note and give as much detail to the officers rather than “I don’t know, that’s your job” It’s not their job to read your mind and look into some mirror ball and miraculously see the past to see what happened. How about work with the police rather than against them, because we all know too well, ” I don’t know nothing” card pulls pretty strong too…To the guy who said he let his dogs out and grabbed him 9mm, you might want to upgrade to a 40mm because most those guys you will be facing are packing those,and a 9 mm will slow them down but not knock them down so unless you’re hitting the range like a sniper you might want to upgrade that is why most law enforcement carry at least 40mm,then let’s not even forget to consider that most of these thugs are also under some drug influence so you better know where to aim with that 40 as well but I’ll agree you’re better off with that 9mm over having no options at all. People need to come together and stop fighting the police, If you ask me I think our poor police officials hands are too tied and that they should be able to take more excessive force than they are allowed now, maybe if in some cases we were a harsher country and we took more extreme measures we wouldn’t have all the crime we have today. Look at other countries..You want to steal, they take an arm, you want to kill someone or shoot at someone? they take you life in other countries not put you up in with food and housing. If you ask me every jail should be ran like the one in Texas so no one would want to be there and then maybe people would think twice. I am baffled how this article went from an officer being shot at the police itself being the topic of whether it was acceptable….wake up people, change starts with us regardless of what color your skin is or what neighborhood you live in.

  • Every county has an MLK Blvd so thugs know where to buy their drugs…Thugs & BLM don’t have the brains to realize that if you target and kill the officers, there will be no one to rescue you. #1WeekLeft

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 5:23 pm
    • its odd mlk was a man of peace and mlk blvds in most any county are the most violent area in that county. the irony..

      Thursday, 12 January 2017, 6:15 pm
  • The truth hurts, you are so right. Thugs everywhere and no one has the right to break the laws and definitely not shoot at officers, anywhere, anytime. Don’t know where Twiggs st is and don’t wanna, I am sure there are nice hardworking people there too. Twiggs sounds like south side of Chicago, been thru there, hated it, and scared to death. If there was a red light you ran it just so you didn’t get killed at a light. Police don’t go in there much I don’t think. BLM, and all the racist crap needs to stop. Change is a comin, I can’t wait. Glad leo is ok and appreciate what they do, yes bad apples come in all groups, Just don’t break the law and you don’t have to worry even if you run across a bad one. STay safe, be aware, most of us want you to go home to your families and the ones that don’t are the thugs and Karma can be a bitch.

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 5:10 pm
    • Hey Change– yes Twiggs St and MLK IS just like the south side of Chicago. You take your life in your OWN hands if you dare to drive through there much less bike or walk it. Mail carriers have been shot at on Twiggs St. and yeah…forget the rest of the delivery that day. It’s THAT BAD. And no you DON’T want to go there…

    • Not even close should take them to chiraq wouldnt last a sec drop them of on west side done deal

      Friday, 13 January 2017, 3:29 pm
  • It amazes me to read some of these post from people who would not even be able to qualify to be a law enforcement officer nor have the temperament and level-headed thinking that is needed to carry out the job and yes everybody does run when law enforcement is shot at but they’re not running away they’re running towards the gunshots and think about this if they would shoot at armed law enforcement officers what makes you think they would hesitate to not shoot you wake up people and start being grateful for what you do have and where you live instead of wanting to continue to blame all your ills on law enforcement or somebody else.

  • they aint for us

    • All in, you are a stupid punk, thug, Bet your mama is real proud. BLUE LIVES DO MATTER, change your life, make something besides a thug out of yourself. Have some RESPECT FOR YOUR SELF AND OTHERS. Get a job, have a dream of bettering yourself. and do it., otherwise you might end up being a statistic. Or are you just a TROLL, if so get back under the bridge. BLUE LIVES DO MATTER!!!!

  • Amazing the people on here bashing LEO and stating we only care when it happens to one of our units. WRONG we care all time time for everyone in our communities, but we are not mind readers if you don’t give us the information how can we do anything. Calling 911 and demanding someone “just get here” and saying “stop asking me questions you don’t need to know that. Your wasting time and letting the person get away” when you call and say that you are the one who is in fact refusing to help the situation. We can’t read your mind, we weren’t there to witness it, and just like your life matters so does ours and the LEO we work with. So before you start bashing us ask yourself, are you HELPING or HURTING the situation by your actions and comments. I’m so sick of this one sided mentality where thugs, BLM, racists are right andLEO is wrong. Let’s see you do their job then watch as your bigoted attitude changes.

    • The root of the problem is the 24/7/365 open air drug market The dealers are attempting to make twigg and mlk a no go zone for police It needs to be shut down with 24/7/365 tactical patrols and undercover operations

      Thursday, 12 January 2017, 5:42 pm
      • For once I agree with you Mr John weipz

        Sunday, 15 January 2017, 9:58 pm
  • was it HCSO or brooksville PD because that is not a deputy in the pic ?

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 9:10 am
  • why do people that are decent move into this area? When we moved here decades ago the real estate agent said go no where near this area its dangerous. Im sure there are some good people in it but move. I lived in a rough area in chicago and left everything behind to get away. BPD and HCSO cant be every where and do everything they need to. Theres too much political correctness hug a thug mentality in our modern society these days. The parents sue and deplete resources and funds of these departments even if the officers are cleared these days its expensive and time consuming. No ones precious family can be criminal, so many people enable these criminals. Look at other cities where career criminals get hurt then the community riots and loots and burns its own towns to the ground. Ive watched so many people in the last few years just drive away from a traffic stop and bc of a no pursuit policy in this county they get away. Its sad and terrible. These self entitled criminals just shoot freely at officers and think nothing of it. I 100 percent support our men and women in uniform. The reason we care so much when there is a shooting bc if the criminal will shoot at officers, they wont think twice about executed your family just because.. These are the most dangerous people in our society. I wish they would bring back chain gangs, bird cages, and public shackles. Watch crime drop, but no we give these criminals better treatment than most of the citizens that are victimized get, from free health and medical to free food to free shelter etc. Our justice system is broken.

  • The nearby schools open this morning? Does anyone know anything?

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 7:58 am
  • I have to agree with you D D and few other’s but it’s the whole society that is in trouble. If we cannot get along with each other
    They win

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 7:41 am
  • This is what our society has come to . It is sad. All of this BLM ect crap has to stop! We’re all human and created by one GOD. Blue lives matter! We are people with family to go home to. We are not paid well for what we do and put ourselves at risk. We leave our families ,put on a uniform with a possibly of not returning home. How about some support, respect, and honor.

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 7:18 am
    • If you feel you aren’t getting paid enough quit or go somewhere else. You knew what you signed on for. Yes, you have a family and they knew what you signed on for. I’m not a LEO basher, I’m just tired of you guys/gals whining all the time. DO YOUR DA** job or quit. HCSO is pretty useless. Ok so now bring on all the people who want to bash me. Good cops support bad cops and it continues on. HCSO needs to police themselves and stop covering for their dirty officers. If not, this kind of crap will continue and get worse. It would be a ahame if a good cop got killed just because he’s a cop. POLICE yourselves. Weed out the bad guys then you can be proud to be a cop, which used to be an honorable position.

      Thursday, 12 January 2017, 3:13 pm
    • I have got to say that they couldn`t pay me enough to do the job of a policeman in today`s world.. I praise each and everyone that puts on a badge today to protect and defend us in this crazy time. I have the utmost respect for you all. Be safe and God Bless!

    • Praises to you Mrs Amy you’ve spoken the truth

      Sunday, 15 January 2017, 10:00 pm
  • The police have families and put their lives on the line everyday to protect the citizens. Any person who shoots at police office is a danger to the entire community. It is not just themselves they are worried about, but the community as a whole (even you Doug).

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 6:52 am
  • I heard/saw the search going on so I put the dogs in the yard and grabbed my 9mm. I’m sick of the thugs around here. I hope the police catch up to this guy.

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 1:49 am
  • I listened to this live tonight. Shooting goes on here every day. Why is it the police only care when it’s them getting shot at. If a person calls 911 you will get the run around and it becomes clear they don’t want to be bothered.

    Thursday, 12 January 2017, 1:01 am
    • You’re an hole. It’s not about the uniform, a HUMAN BEING got shot at.

      Thursday, 12 January 2017, 1:38 am
    • Yes thats the truth…. they are quick to run to a deputy but if its one of us its a different story so agree… i was just in that area when it happen… they were all at the store and cops down every road and still out…. but i agree it does happen alot but dont respond quick

      Thursday, 12 January 2017, 3:11 am
    • Your an idiot! Has nothing to do with being a Police Officer! Hope you’re not the next target. Maybe it’s time for you to move!

      Thursday, 12 January 2017, 4:15 am
      • Wow, what a good person you are to wish death on someone. No matter what they say. It’s not right.

        Thursday, 12 January 2017, 12:13 pm
    • Glad to hear I am not the only one who noticed/experienced this!

      Thursday, 12 January 2017, 4:29 am
    • Yeah in that garbage area there are shootings eveyday, after awhile (idk 20 years) NOBODY CARES huh ? Those people need to police themselves before the police do anything.
