Well evidently, he kicked all three officers butts at the same time and got away. That would of been cool to watch while eating a bag of popcorn.

Interesting that he is 'most wanted' only /after/ he resistested arrest. And no information about what he was being arrested for. I hope the officer that was injured is ok. I also hope it is not a case that got priority only because the 'victims' were police officers and implying that if it were you or me that got assaulted by this man we would not get the same level of priority with st county police I think David's comment is disrespectful.

This board is for our comments and thoughts. Maybe someone on here was bullied as a child or as an adult. Mike K, people like you speak with a keyboard. You would probably never say that face to face to me.......just saying.....

Would you say what you said 'face to face' to the officer who was injured by this man? Or what about his widow and child if this man had not just injured an officer, but shot him or killed him? Still think that popcorn would taste good? My point was we don't know what happened. Maybe he mouthed off and pushed the . officers and one scraped himself as the man ran away. Maybe he did 'kick their butts'. Regardless, officers putting their lives on the line to protect you and I and our property is no way respectful to treat that as entertainment for your pleasure. You have your opinion, I have mine.
