  1. Betty Benedict I lived there for 27 years I know what goes on in the hood!! And I still know as I still go visit my friend!! So please don’t tell me, I know about good family’s there in that area and know about the rif RAF too!! It’s everywhere so maybe you should grow up!!

  2. Yea brother i saw 4 sheriff’s trucks ambulance fire truck..when i drove up to my house last night…..i knew some one was dead just didnt think that would be two streets down..

  3. Anita Batey Abers the city has an only lost two officers in the line of duty in its history. 2000 and 2014. The crimes levels has only risen slightly and that comes with growth. I worked in the jail for several years back in the late 90’s and nothing has changed.

  4. Homicide detectives have been secured to the scene??? There has not been one person here the entire morning! And why the hell would deputies ignore the chance to have state troopers come in faster? They could have saved his life! What selfish, self-obsessed idiots!!!
