These local BG's are now 'terrorists', having declaired war on the police, and in effect every decent citizen of Cocoa, Fla.

Its to be expected that these scumbags would start going after the LEO's at home, putting their family members in a state of increased fear.
But maybe the bad guys inadvertently did something good. With their public declaration against the cops, hopefully, most people will realize the danger the LEO's are under. Also, the LEO's have been alerted.
When one of these scumbags makes his move on a cop and gets killed, hopefully, the public reaction won't be that the LEO shot a poor, misunderstood youth.
No one should have to live like this.
God bless the LEO's.
fortiter in re, suaviter in modo (resolutely in action, gently in manner).
haha...amusing. Don't worry, they all usually die by the age of 30 anyway.
I pray the safety of our servants the Police. The down side of all this the polititians will say a gun ban is in order.Taking away the law abiding citizen their chance for survival.We indeed live in some scary times and its not getting better.Sort of like the fall of Rome.Civil unrest ,the empire is sick and falling. Will Hilery help us please?Maybe Obama. I think Nancy would have a door to door gun grab like in New Orleans.And they said it could not happen here. Ha
This is nothing new.
Police have been taunted and/or outright threatened with retaliation and death by criminals including so called community activists since the beginning of police work.
This is just the latest and highly visible evidence of as much.
I guess you guys totally missed this item in the news last month...
...not to mention all the survivalist, neo-nazi, the Klan, David Koresh, Randy Weaver and numerous other fringe group persons as well as generally unstable anti authority type individuals who have stated as much and done similar if not same.As reported by ABCNews.com on January 31st:
Sheriff's Wife Among 4 Dead in Shooting
Sheriff's Wife, Deputy Among 4 Dead in Shooting Outside Sheriff's House in Florida Panhandle
By MELISSA NELSON
MARIANNA, Fla. Jan 31, 2007 (AP)— Investigators were trying to determine Wednesday why two people shot and killed a sheriff's wife and a deputy before officers killed the suspects at the sheriff's home.
The Tuesday evening attack apparently targeted the home of Jackson County Sheriff John McDaniel and his wife, Mellie McDaniel.
"The community should not be concerned. We believe this was not a random case," State Attorney Steve Meadows said at a news conference late Tuesday, declining to discuss a motive.
More than 100 officers searched the area surrounding the McDaniels' home into early Wednesday, although most had left by late morning. Meadows said authorities did not believe there were other attackers, but the search was conducted as a precaution.
The shootings began around 5 p.m. when Mellie McDaniel arrived home. She managed to call her husband's office and report intruders in the area, but she and one of the deputies sent to the house were killed, said Joe Grammer, a spokesman for Meadows.
Other officers arrived and killed the two suspects in an exchange of gunfire, Meadows said. The sheriff was there but Meadows said he could not say whether he fired his weapon. The sheriff was not injured.
The names of the dead deputy and the suspects were not released.
Edwin Douglas said he was taking a nap at his brother's house, across the street from the McDaniels', when gunfire woke him.
"I heard 15 to 20 gunshots," Douglas told The News Herald of Panama City. "It was quite a bit of excitement. About 20 police cars showed up."
McDaniel's father was gunned down while working at a Jackson County gas station in 1980. McDaniel, then a sheriff's deputy, responded to a robbery call to find his father, former Malonen Mayor John P. McDaniel Jr., shot to death. Serial killer Henry Lee Lucas confessed.
"We never quit working a murder case," McDaniel said at a news conference in 1990 when Lucas was extradited from Texas to Florida. "We will always continue to work any and every murder case until we come to a happy conclusion that conclusion being the person who committed the heinous crime will go to justice."

As a 23 year veteran LEO, I just wanted to humbly say "Thank you" to everyone in the forum for their support and prayers for the law enforcement community.

It sounds like someone had a beef with the sherrif and not a random killing. Mabe he busted a drug suppyer and they were trying to get even. Who ever is behind I hope they are flushed out.
There should be a twenty year sentence or more when these punks are caught harassing a cop or his family.
