  • Yes there were many shots fired but none of you were there. Did you hear the officers voice when he said he was involved in a shooting ? He is clearly upset , get a life and leave LEO do their job. My husband was a cop in an inner city in NJ and every day there were prayers he would come home safe. During his time he delivered three babies and was respected by the community, today all we do is bash cops , they have a hard job and only a few are brave enough to become a LEO

  • What a selfish piece of trash to try and take another family’s loved one down with her. She is a criminal. Why isn’t her name posted? If you wanna whack yourself, that’s your business. If want to take down our heroes & protectors with you, that’s all of our business. God bless & protect our officers from anyone seeking to do them harm.

  • Why did Hillsbrough County S.O. respond to Hernando County (Brooksville Jurisdiction) to assist. I know of mutual aid, but it does not sound right. Unless there is a bomb threat then I guess they would call the Tampa Bay regional bomb squad which is predominately made of Hillsborough/Tampa law enforcement. The article did not read anything about a bomb though.

    • N/A please tell me where hillsborough county s.o. is mentioned in either article on this tragedy. I’ve even enlarged the pictures to look for them. NOWHERE DOES EITHER ARTICLE MENTION HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY S.O.! NOWHERE IN PICTURES/VIDEO DID I SEE HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY S.O.! Brooksville p.d. and Hernando s.o. are only ones mentioned.

  • Why were so many shots fired I wonder? Anyone else that watched this think it was also? Knowing she was trying to do suicide by cop, a few shots and she should have been down. Glad LEO are ok. Hopefully the woman gets the help she needs.

    • KLG, I’m not an expert but do have relatives work for police. She was inside her house pointing gun out door. They need to cover any leo trying to get closer to her so leo does not gey shot. It’s a distraction to draw fire away from leo trying to get nearer to house to find another way in to disarm her or tske her down. Prayers for her recovery from ALL illnesses and for leo who is now going thru a shooting review and his personal vision of the day.

    • That’s a good question. I wonder if they need more marksman training.

    • Become a cop then you will know why !

      Monday, 21 August 2017, 11:21 am
    • KLG, yes stupid ridiculous amount overdone reply of shot’s, is just me or does look like leo’s are (applying) some training from the range? commented twice on 8-20, but the only comment i’m seeing is yours, tom, where’s comments?

    • KLG, possibly leo was trying to give coverage to a leo member who was trying to get a vantage point closer to her so they could get control of her or the gun. It’s a distraction method known to be used. Prayers go out to this woman. Prayers also for leo involved in shooting – he has to deal with his tragedy too. And he has to deal with internal affairs investigation.
