  • Crazy b yes she was the driver. Pretty ignorant that it states he admitted to all of it and she says it’s not true. And for the ones defending her, just a little fyi she would be talking crap about a person if it was someone else in her situation. Pathetic piece of work if you ask me.

  • I don’t think there is anything wrong with pounding a gun at someone who owes money especially in defense, honestly I would have wiped the prints off and denied the gun part all the way and never throw out a window, in a child zone that was no good. Lynn you okay? They didn’t throw you down right?

    Wednesday, 1 June 2016, 12:39 pm
  • Hey “Lynn” the dumbass confessed to being at the scene, pointing the gun, firing the gun then throwing the gun out the window of the car. That is pretty much the whole story, what part is the not true that you are referring too?

  • Few details. The idiots sped into a cul de sac where half a dozen small kids play, fired shots, and sped out. Numerous people saw car/heard shots & called 911. LE arrived within minutes & wasted no time getting pertinent information, thus the dirtbags were arrested rapidly. Could speculate on motive but wont. We let LE discover & disclose that. May justice be served.

  • I have experienced a felony traffic stop. It is not pleasant. They weren’t looking for me, it was a case of mistaken identity as my vehicle fit the description of the vehicle they were looking for. I get pulled over, I’m like… OK, don’t think I violated any traffic laws, wasn’t speeding, all of a sudden there’s three cop cars behind me and someone is on a loud speaker saying “driver, put your left arm out of the window so we can see it and turn the vehicle off.” I did. “Now throw the keys out of the window and put your other arm out of the window.” Ummmm? I see guns drawn and pointed at me…. officers surrounded my vehicle with guns drawn asking me “where’s the gun?” WHAT?????? Also I had my dog in the car, a big dog. She was still a puppy though. They yank me out of the car and shove me to my knees and tell me to keep my hands on my head. My dog, scared, jumps out of the window and starts running across three lanes of traffic towards the interstate on-ramp… out of instinct, I jump to my feet to run after my dog only to have a gun shoved against my head and yelled at to get on my knees. I’m yelling “please get my dog. Don’t let her get hit by a car, please.” At which point one officer stopped traffic while the other went after my dog. By this time, I guess they realized they had the wrong person be caused I was helped to my feet, apologized to, and handed the leash attached to my dog. I stood there in shock as they sped away, undoubtedly after the person they were actually looking for. Felony stops are NO fun.

  • Nice. Now comes the free medical, free food, free shelter, etc. all at every tax payers expense. So many people in this county good and honest hard working trying to support their families cant afford much needed medical care but hey become a community terrorist and its all free in a sense paid for by the good decent tax paying people in the community.

    Tuesday, 31 May 2016, 7:11 pm
  • Felony stop requires at least 2 officers w/ weapons drawn. No officer will approach the car… suspects will be required to exit and walk backwards toward the officers vehicles. (Safest for leo’s).
