    Question Best quote of 2008

    Maybe this was posted earlier in the year (did a search, came up empty) but this is probably one of the best quotes of 2008 by POLK COUNTY FLORIDA SHERIFF GRADY JUDD. Worth a read.

    Some 'dirtbag' in Polk County Florida who got pulled over in a routine traffic stop ended up 'executing' the deputy who stopped him. The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed. A state wide manhunt ensued.
    The low-life was found hiding in a wooded area with his gun. SWAT team officers fired and hit the guy 68 times.

    Now here's the kicker:

    Naturally, the media asked why they shot him 68 times. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, told the Orlando Sentinel:
    "That's all the bullets we had !!" (Talk about an all-time classic answer !!!)

    Justice Served. Bullets are much cheaper than 40 years of meals, cable and civil rights.

    So, the good sheriff would have been roundly applauded by many of the residents.

    I'm sure that went over well with the ACLU and other "Human Rights" groups. Only shot 68 times, Walmart must have been closed so they couldn't get any more ammo quickly!

    Don't know about that but I can tell you what the citizens and voters think about him. He was re-elected in November of 2008 with 99% of the vote.

    True story, according to Snopes.

    snopes.com: Sherriff Judd's Comments


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Can we get the good Sheriff to come to Memphis? We've got some of them thugs up here that "just need killin'."

    Good for the Sheriff, great for the BG (dirtbag!)

    I thought Denny Craine for President but I think Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd would be better.

    Dang, I think Hillsborough (Tampa) needs to exchange our sheriff for one from up N in this state.
