  • ***Tom, I live on Maguire, across from him. According to the neighbor directly across from him, the deputies were there requesting videos from his security cameras, and was told this was not a minor. Please check this out and print a follow up if it’s true. I would hate to see this piece of crap sue you for defamation of character.

  • I cannot believe the blatant ignorance of half you people. They treated that situation just as he needed to be treated he is a convicted felon with multiple firearm charges he’s a pedophile that should have just took them out from 50 yards away but that’s not my judgment but you damn right we roll up SWAT you damn right they’re going to bring out the sort team come out that mother on from Every Witch Way is the dangerous career Criminal to handle exactly how it should have been

    • I hope you are not a deputy, you used the term WE when talking about SWAT. If so, please do the public a favor and get an education.
      He does have a history. I’d like to know what kind of mother would take her small kids to his home in the first place? If his guns were previously confiscated, did they get more guns this time around or no?
      To me this is complete overkill. I agree with the other posters. A huge waste of resources on HCSO’s behalf. A slap in the face of those of us who pay their salaries.
      Before you jump down my throat, I will tell you this. I am ex LEO (retired) and we would have never done this stupid publicity stunt where I was a professional at. But we all know that your Sheriff likes to make stuff look good for his department and he knows diddly squat about his position. Most of the command staff at HCSO are nothing but career butt kisses who have moved up the rank only by doing that. Look at them all. They used to be in shape and now they are hideously fat. Your two top brass are as corrupt as they come too. Vote that fat head out and you would all benefit from a real Sheriff’s department.
      Just wait until BPD is taken over. You have seen nothing yet and you can bet that your taxes are going to greatly increase.

A slap in our faces saying they are now the only game in town now and they’re going to milk our pockets dry with their agenda of retaliation.

      Negative. I believe you had a Very Poor Upbringing. As the OLD saying goes, if you have nothing
