  1. Ole Backshot as she is known at the station.

  2. Murderous bitch!

  3. What is law enforcement doing using Hydro-shock / hollow point bullets illegal for military use.

  4. Our hero first responders keeping us safe from Byrd scooters.

  5. Many people don’t realize this but Mike
    Sharp and Hugh Mills hired a lot of questionable people over the last eight years. This has resulted in the Sheriffs Department being involved in several major incidents that previously were rare occurrences. Deputies have killed several people and seriously injured several others in raids, car chases and in this case, chasing a scooter for riding on the sidewalk. If we had real investigative journalism, a story could easily be found at the department. This deputy should never have been allowed to stay at the department after the first shooting involving a shoplifting person. Unfortunately as always, police get a pass from the public when they should be held more accountable.

  6. If it's that easy to take her taser and use it on her maybe she shouldn't have been a police officer at all.

  7. After killing a shoplifter at the Raytown Walmart she received way too much praise and awards. Made her a little too big for her britches.

  8. Ever increasingly we see the jackbooted thug cops thinking they’re in control of the public and the citizens are their personal piggy bank. See the cops don’t build anything fix anything create anything and more and more it’s becoming usurpe and harass as opposed to protect and serve , let’s face it there’s no money in busting a crackhead the real money is in giving a soccer mom a ticket for a rolling stop in a quiet suburb see then the parasites have money handed to them. So if you really need a cop don’t bother they’re to busy writing tickets for cash out of their personal piggy bank from the hard working public and if they write enough they can get some more plate readers and sell our personal data to the highest bidder and to all the lake Winnebago residents don’t drive anywhere after 9pm you’ll be harassed by your jackbooted thugs in black

  9. I guess 12:08 got caught lurking around Lake Winnebago late at night. Sad commentary and total lack of appreciation for what they do Perhaps you'd leave your phone number in case we need help on a crime and perhaps you'll come over and handle it?

  10. ^^^Revenue policing is alive and well in most
    jurisdictions. Cops start out wanting to save the world but groupthink quickly takes over and they become lazy and ineffective.

  11. WoW what a bunch of Obamanites on this thread. Hands Up Don't Shoot..... right fella's.. Pfff sad sacks of Liberal Poo.....and a BUNCH of COWARDS... I'm surprised you all didn't start singin Pigs In A Blah Blah Blah. Damn Democrats
