    Two LEO shot in Orlando

    Details sketchy so far but both officers have non life threatening injuries. Two in custody one on the run.

    Happened at the Caribe Royal resort where they're about to have a convention addressing crime in the african-american community.

    Let's hope their injuries are truly non life threatening and they make good recoveries.

    Hope too #3 perp is quickly apprehended.

    Boy, it seems like there have been a lot of reports of pretty serious stuff coming out of O-bland-o lately... What's going on over there?

    (I grew up about 45 minutes from Orlando, and my parents live just outside of there, so I find these reports interesting and a little alarming.)
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I'm about 45 minutes from Orlando right and I'm finding these reports alarming!

    Over an auto theft in progress. All three suspects in custody. One officer wounded in arm one saved by his vest. Let's hear it for those vests!

    I hope its unrelated , I know some black folks ( that may not be the pc term of the day ) and they do not and will not commit crimes . I see this type crap and feel for my friends who work as hard as i do , and support familys .

    Before anyone pitches a ***** , i have limited exposure to the " black community " its limited in the sense of all i have met are fine hard working folks . When a jobsite is in my area some and thier familys have used my house rather than a hotel . I truely do see color , but i see it last .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    Just caught the news. These three bozos have 80 arrests between the three of them. Maybe now they'll decide they might be habitual offenders?

    Of course if they banned guns, they would never have committed any crime, right?

    Another patrol car was found with it's windows shot out this morning.

    A conversation with a long time local LEO recently brought up what he felt was much of the local problem with rising crime. He said crack use is way down but heroin is going through the roof. The latin gangs who control it are having turf wars with the old crack gangs plus pushing into new areas. That added ti the ever more popular "gangsta" culture among all ethnic groups is producing some real troubles.

    The LEOs are sure earning their money lately. I also heard that one of the patrol cars was slot up but the LEO was lucky not to be in it. They were saying that it looks like it was done by the gangs in revenge for the recent crack down on drugs. Just now the news is that the police have three people in custody for the shooting of the two LEOs.

    I'd dearly like to substitute the ''Custody" - for - "Purgatory"

    There is just too much of this 'catch and release' justice in this country. What does it take to get creeps like this behind bars until they are drooling in their oatmeal?

    Welcome to Florida. We have a meth epidemic and gunfire. One tends to beget the other.

    Prayers up for the officers.
