  • What about springhill & alll the meth house’s they have or all the young crack heads out there ? Yall all only wanna say twigg is the problem but thats damn sure not the only place to get drugs from in brooksville. Don’t pin point one place when murders & drugs are All over brooksville. Probably some of yall kids selling drugs or killing people. But yall aint gone talk about that , its way easier to be like “oh yea Twigg st is where all the bad stuff happens” knowing damn well yall prolly smoking weed , smoking crack and so on. Stop acting so innocent and tryna blame everything on them down on twigg because yall know good and well yall got something going on that yall shouldn’t be doing. Yall aint no saints so stop acting like it.
    RIP MARCUS Get Well Soon Tom !

  • Well first and foremost my regards are with the family!! Second it’s sad That​ everyone response is about race or drugs !!! He lived on that block was raised on that block !!! That DOES NOT make him a bad person!! We need to stop judging people by there situation and start looking at them for who they are!!!! Once again my regards are with his family​!!! Ok n now to some preaching!!! I’ve been past and on twigg multiple times!!(n I no I no I’m a drug addict then lol) what my biggest laugh and problem I constitantly see is that there is ALWAYS a brooksville pd posted across the street diagnolly from twigg watch these boys sling all day everyday and do nothing but go after the person driving away!!! Why do you steadly go for the buyer while watching the dealers??Guess what bag the dealer then no more users and traffic!! Ohh wait this county is only about money!!! The dealers go away for to long n don’t pay this good ole buddy system county!!! The users who usually just have a bad habit do pay!!!! If this county wanted to help it
    And fix it they would lose money so it will NEVER happen!!! JUDGEMENT is being casted on the wrong ppl!!!

  • You reap what you sow !! His family turned him into the person he is (or was) so they are as much a part of his circumstance as he is !!! As for the bigoted religious zealots who first send prayers and then talk trash, if its truly Gods will, a bullet wont kill him and prayers wont save him. ( Amen “brother” ?)

    • Go to church on Sunday and sell drugs every other day. It’s generational, and that’s the mentality of the colored folks in South Brooksville. But, praise Jesus!

      Monday, 17 April 2017, 9:17 pm
  • theres been serious issues coming from trouble makers on that street for decades and it is what it is. many things have been done to change that but certain factors are lacking.. guaranteed some news will be writing another twigg street shooting decades from now.

    Sunday, 16 April 2017, 10:48 pm
  • The good Lord doesn’t want anything to do with Twigg St. Save your prayers for something that matters!

      • It was my house that was run into by a young man trying to get away from the gunfire. Hopefully he has had a come to Jesus moment, turn his life around and get out of that Twigg St. mentality. Pretty severe structural damage, but HCSO didn’t feel the need to tryand get ahold of me. Found a form from FHP stuck in my front door Sunday morning. I lived there for three and a half years and recently moved out. Gun violence becoming the norm and a sheriff who didn’t seem to care. Yesterday was the first day I actually saw deputies out of their cars and walking the streets. There is alot of fine folks who live in that neighborhood, but they feel disenfranchised by law enforcement. Even yesterday law enforcement failed to enforce trespass violations, people blocking folks driveways and noise violations.
        I know the victim and his family and I pray for them. Please don’t condemn the neighborhood for the actions of a few people and the inaction of HCSO.

        Monday, 17 April 2017, 8:02 am
        • How can law enforcement do their job when the people who live there hide evidence, shoot at the police and keep their lips tight.

          Monday, 17 April 2017, 9:11 am
        • I think your name says it all ….. 🙂

          Monday, 17 April 2017, 12:16 pm
          • Blame the cops. It’s their fault. I think you need to hire your own police to control your people.

            Monday, 17 April 2017, 2:41 pm
    • He hasnt died. So please if you dont know please respect the family. They have been thru enough.

  • Let’s have a rally!! “BLACK LIVES MATTER!”
    What?? Ohhh,,, we don’t do that when blacks kill each other .. only when whitey’s holdin’ em down . Let’s riot, it an excuse to rob stores ( in r own neighborhood!?) let’s burn down r own neighborhood ! We didn’t even know the guy! But we’ve been delt a GREAT injustice ! U white folk sure got some nerve!!

  • It’s amazing how Janice can say the entire area needs to be razed… Janice why don’t you suggest that the area be prayed for and revitalized….not everyone there is into drugs, and nonsence. But I’m sure you know that being that you were born there too…..

    Sunday, 16 April 2017, 4:08 pm
    • How about they “SPAY” the area and “Euthanize” vs. revitalize? Anything is worth a “Shot” right? …. 🙂

      Monday, 17 April 2017, 7:02 am
      • If not razed, that’s exactly what needs to be done. There hasn’t been anything good come off of Twigg Street in years. The police know their lives are in danger every time they have to go down that street or to the area.

        Monday, 17 April 2017, 3:09 pm
    • Amen

      Monday, 17 April 2017, 12:39 pm
    • I don’t pray but the people on Twigg Street seem to prey on each other. I wasn’t born there and I wouldn’t step foot in that area if I had to. Most everyone is into drugs there and all the nonsense that goes with them. Either drugs or finding white girls to make babies with so the babies aren’t dark skinned. It will never be revitalized. It’s been the hood, the subs and an easy place for anyone to go into to get drugs for decades.

      Monday, 17 April 2017, 3:12 pm
      • How would you know if you haven’t or you say wouldn’t step foot down there

        Friday, 21 April 2017, 3:53 am
  • That street AND NEIGHBorHOOD is a disgrace to our whole country! The feds will be raiding it soon everything there is under active watch and surveilance there just waiting for the right time to hand out career criminal life sentences instead of wrist slaps and then it will get all bulldozed not one house there is worth a thousand dollars, soon Brooksville will be great again! My white president prevails!

  • Generational poverty folks…. it breeds uneducated people who breed violence. You can’t help people who won’t help themselves.

  • They need to destory twigg street. But Brooksville Police or Hernando County Sheriff department don’t care. I am black before you say something. But Brooksville is full of too many kids being grown and grown people acting like kids.

    Sunday, 16 April 2017, 2:53 pm
    • Thestruggle, I totally agree with your last sentence and not all of the kid/adults or adult/kids are black. A lot are white rednecks and not all are on twigg st. or even close.

      Sunday, 16 April 2017, 7:09 pm
    • But What People Don’t Understand Is It’s Not The People Who Live There That Make Twiggy Street The Way It Is. It’s The People Who Come There. Destroy The Street For What? If People Would Take Their Business Where They Stay It Wouldn’t Be A Problem. When Those People Who Are Not Residents Of The Street Aren’t There, It’s Actually A Quiet Place, But Y’all Wouldn’t Know That Because Of What Goes On.

      Monday, 24 April 2017, 4:07 pm
  • Prayers for the family and friends! Just remember that this person has a huge family and I know they have suffered enough!!

  • Janice,your a disgrace to Brooksville shut it racist up

    Sunday, 16 April 2017, 1:01 pm
    • You’re a perfect example as to why. I’m not racist. I’m chocolate.

      Sunday, 16 April 2017, 1:18 pm
      • Does this mean you can only be racist if your not chocolate?

        Monday, 17 April 2017, 6:50 am
        • Not at all. I was responding to someone who thought I was a whitey. I had to set them straight. Not everyone who doesn’t like that area is racist or white. Lots of us chocolate folks don’t like the place either and want it razed.

          Monday, 17 April 2017, 3:14 pm
    • Facts aren’t racist.

      Sunday, 16 April 2017, 1:23 pm
    • how is janice racist? she happens to be correct

      Sunday, 16 April 2017, 3:53 pm
    • Real, you must be one of those liberal POS! You and the rest of your Democraps continue to bring up the race card for every news event. You are so transparent.

      Sunday, 16 April 2017, 8:13 pm
  • That entire area needs razed. It’s a drug pit and a disgrace to Brooksville.

    Sunday, 16 April 2017, 12:46 pm
