    Respond and take a report, respond and take a report, respond and take a report. Anyone see a trend here? Where's the stakeout and apprehension team? Or is Tallahassee now to liberal and soft handed to apprehend violent offenders on scene? Is that now the job of USMS task force? Chief Jones will dress cops up like super heroes to catch speeders but won't work near as hard to stake out high crime areas!

    My heart is greived to hear this news. And I apologized for being so hard on the TPD's efforts in Andrew Hale's investigation. I now see law enforcement has to pick up the pieces and try to make sense and stop the twisted behavior of criminals. But I also see these acts increasing and it disturbs me greatly. I still believe Andrew is innocent, entering Bill's at the wrong time. He only had one arrest in his whole life and served his time for that. He had changed and knew his past actions were wrong. I am so very greatful no one in these robberies were harmed. I believe the intercessors and prayer warriors have an obligation to come against the spiritual wickedness in this city and country. Law enforcement can only do so much. Our teachers can only do so much. We are dealing with high spirits here of murder, robbery, pornography, theft, spiritual wickedness of all sorts just to name a few. The common factor in all these is the enemy of all mankind so pray, pray without ceasing, pray

    Have you noticed our local robber WIMPS only hit the places they know clerks and cashiers are not armed? Such chickens, but your luck is gonna run out! People in this community are getting mighty fed up and don't be surprised if you pull a robbery and a bystander beats the crap out of you or better yet, shoots you and drops you in your tracks. Blame yourself if you have a death wish, because your actions are making alot of people more than ever, willing to grant your wish!

    Funny one, Tim! It looks like there needs to be a curfew or something for anyone wearing dark clothing, age 20 something. This c*** is getting out of hand. These 20 something year olds have parents, don't they? GET OFF YOUR DUFFS AND MONITOR YOUR KIDS. I say kids because they are not men, they are lazy crooks, probably still living at home. Keep it up, maybe I can get a part time job in security. Anyone going to defend these guys in this article? Come on, give us their names, you know who it was....
