    Well, for his whereabouts. She's in custody. Hopefully soon to be charged with two counts of felony murder.

    Here in Tampa, they are saying there was a dash cam video of the shootings. The perp had a warrant so the officers had him out of the car and facing the car.
    One LEO was on his left and one behind. The perp made a stretching move to disguise a reach into his cargo shorts and pull a gun. He then shot the officer on his left, then turned and shot the officer behind him who was backing up.
    They let their guard down.
    There must be a thousand cops looking for him. If he's smart, he'll shoot himself.

    Reward is up to $95,000. With that amount of cash to his name, he has no friends in Tampa. Sooner or later he will be found. Hopefully TPD will get him(judd style) as opposed to him turning himself in.


    Touching, and so true......

    "A Part of America Died

    By Harry Koch

    Someone killed a policeman today,

    And a part of America Died.

    A piece of our country he swore to protect

    Will be buried with him at his side.

    The suspect who shot him will stand up in court.

    With counsel demanding his rights.

    While a young widowed mother must work for her kids

    And spend alone many long nights

    The beat that he walked was a battlefield, too.

    Just as if he'd gone off to war.

    Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,

    To his name they will add a gold star

    Yes, someone killed a policeman today

    It happened in your town or mine.

    While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors.

    A cop put his life on the line.

    Now, his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street.

    And he stands at each new rookie's side

    He answered the call and gave us his all

    And a part of America died."

    Very sad! Did they have audio to go with the video, would be interesting to hear the conversation that took place.

    A mistake or even a small lapse in attention at the wrong time can be very expensive. Unfortunately, many BG's know when they have an edge and are not afraid to take advantage of it.

    I went to school with and graduated with Curtis' wife. I was very shocked to see this. I can not imagine having four young children and losing a spouse to violent crime.

    one of the officers is an old friend of my husband’s side of the fam.
    apparently his wife went into labor when she heard the news.
    those scum bags are going to be spending eternity in a very unpleasant place.

    Opposing Views: 2 Tampa Cops Gunned Down; Widow Gives Birth Hours Later


    A sad story out of Tampa, Florida, where two police officers, David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab, were shot and killed during a traffic stop early Tuesday morning. Police are looking for the gunman. Making the story even more heartbreaking, just afters after Kocab was killed, his widow gave birth to the couple's first child.

    It almost breaks my heart every time i hear of anyone from the public services losing their life. Godspeed to these two officers as they ring in 10-42 for the last time.

    The suspect has been apprehended. Apparently, someone turned him in. Sadly, he was taken into custody alive and unharmed. Fortunately, he'll spend the rest of his life in a cage, until the state finally ends it.

    In an interesting development, the woman driving the vehicle has been taken into custody on federal charges of failing to report the shooting. Works for me - the federal system hands down hefty sentences.
