    @ spasm
    Also, if you are that upset about another senseless murder of the unarmed and innocent, can you tell us if any in law enforcement has directly, publicly and completely asked forgiveness from Austin’s parents?
    Have law enforcement associations or the unions; part of Lee county sheriff department is in fact unionized, contributed to the costs of Austin’s funeral? Save the time because the answer is a ringing and truth-telling no. Ironic, all of us members of the VFW continue to get call center cold calls asking for money to support the sheriff association.
    I also failed to address your propaganda concerning the Lee sheriff. Under his supervision the department has squandered millions of taxpayer dollars, killed a number of people under suspect circumstances, actually tortured a vacationer for two days before dropping the abused body at the hospital where he expired – leading the FL AG to say it was a homicide but the sheriff isn’t giving us any information so we can’t do anything, and a sealed multi million dollar settlement with Mrs. Christie to stop the public learning of this murder.
    In what world are adults with training, responsibility, authority, and special legal consideration allowed to victimize children and families wantonly? In what world must those victimized by these employees be compelled to feel sorry for those employees because they face public scorn when their actions become known?
    This is madness. Thank you.

    @ spasm
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    Thank you for your response. In FL the inside of any lane of a 2 lane road, unless otherwise so indicated, is in fact the authorized lane for bicycle traffic.
    I do not hate law enforcement nor oath keeping honorable members of law enforcement. I do despise any and all that commit criminal acts/ are accessories to criminal acts, violate their oath or contribute to the violation of an oath by others, a failure of minimum professional standards, and a two tier system of justice.
    The Cape Coral PD blamed Austin’s shirt, bicycle, and of course that he did not wear a helmet.
    Now, I am particularly glad you use the right to work state as a cover. FL is a state with a iron lock on the legal system for the direct and sole benefit of law enforcement employees caught in misconduct. Since I suspect you are a law enforcement employee, you know as I do, that all of the local LE websites are full of hatred for Austin and Cape Coral writing a citation – they feel betrayed from the protection of the group.
    I refer you two a number of local websites that document in video the constant improper and dangerous operation of law enforcement vehicles in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, and Hendry counties.
    When I point out how corrupt this system is that does not mean I hate oath keeping peace officers and police. In fact I pray daily for the honorable and competent to regain control of law enforcement.
    Thank you.

    @ HOLD_THE_LINE
    While I think I understand what you mean I am at a loss. Exactly when did we, as a people, give up the right to not be able to defend yourself and family from random marksmen with 308′s and spotters?
    I am not defending the drunken, self absorbed, self destructive actions of indulged white young adults – that think and act like a toddler in the throes of the terrible two’s – but this is insane.
    Last year the local law enforcement industry branch had 4 armed sniper teams in the target acquisition mode.
    Does any reasonable adult believe employing sniper teams in this scenario is appropriate?
    To my mind this is the same nihilist death cult law enforcement crap that allows paramilitary forces to execute low/ no risk warrants that end in the murder of the innocent because it was the wrong address or a negligent discharge or just plain incompetence.
    Madness sure madness.
    Thank you.

    @ mcsledge
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    No, not funny but perhaps ironic. In the end it is just another sign post on this highway to hell our country is on.
    You do also notice the connection this woman’s former spouse has with law enforcement don’t you?
    Everyone’s expectation of the legal industry and law enforcement industry must be one of extreme skepticism and require independent evidence of everything they do and say in order for any value to be placed in it.
    Once legitimacy is lost it requires decades of hard daily work to restore.
    Thank you.

    @ redfish53
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    Vehicle mounted cameras are essential as far as I am concerned. In my work van (I am a small businessman) I keep one in the windshield and one in the rear window. This has become a necessary expense with the number of insurance scams and, unfortunately, law enforcement writing tickets for non violations.
    I recommend anyone in business that has a vehicle do the same. It has saved us a lot of costs just on insurance premiums alone.
    Thank you.

    @ yiddishlion
    You make a sound observation.
    Locally, we had a law enforcement employee (lee county sheriff FL) kill a 15 year old child (Austin Dukette) on the way to school on his bicycle in the bicycle lane because the employee was speeding in his patrol vehicle, playing with his computer and hit Austin head on in the bicycle lane. In Lee county FL if you are in the law enforcement industry you get a careless driving ticket, keep your job, the union and apologists cover for you as the taxpayer picks up the medical and legal bills.
    I wonder what will happen to the person causing this accident?
    Thank you.

    @ AJAYW
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    For all of the trolls and the self hating delusion apologists; each and every member of this “task force” are in fact sworn to an oath before God and man whether they be in the legal industry or the law enforcement industry. Each and everyone one of them has participated in or is an accessory to a violation of that oath and for many this is an act of treason.
    I pray for this country I think the time we have left is growing shorter – much shorter.
    Thank you.

    Don’t take the bait. Just deal with what is and let the distractions (race, social status, language, income, anarchists etc) and focus on the incident.
    You will be amazed how many agree with you and things can be reversed when you focus on what unites (God, law abiding, decent people) then what divides.
    Thank you.

    @ Mapache
    I too despise a liar. Unfortunately, I think your way over the top inferring that any law enforcement employee would be negatively impact by a single charge like this. Here in FL sexual harassment, assault, rape, sodomy and worse are not infrequent and many times it goes unpunished when the perp is wearing a government issued outfit.
    To lighten your fears of law enforcement employees being victimized by the public:
    15 year old Austin Dukette was killed riding his bicycle to school a few days back. The murderer was a Lee county deputy sheriff employee in his patrol vehicle. The employee was speeding, on his computer and hit Austin head on in the bicycle lane. What happened to the employee; a careless driving ticket. Why? Well you see it was all Austin’s fault. According to the 40 page report Austin tricked the employee because he wore a dark shirt that morning and his bicycle did not have a xenon light on it and it was all Austin’s fault anyway because he was not wearing a helmet. I wonder how that helmet was going to protect him from a speeding 3 ton vehicle hitting him head on in the bicycle lane? Oh well – just a detail. But the good news is that employee Hood was protected & the union is going all out to protect him from this child playing this horrible trick on him. Oh did I mentioned that when the patrol vehicle killed Austin the employee was trolling the FL DAVID system looking to write a ticket or worse. I wish this was some sick joke but it is not. Thanks.

    Your sarcasm is well placed. The one qualifier you should add to your list is self entitled. A few points: NYC is in a department that places employees on a strict citation/ arrest quota system. The employee benefits by citing & or arresting you. Convictions & legitimate charges do not matter. All the videos of police state thuggery I’ve seen have one common denominator: obesity.
    Just something local to add:
    A law enforcement employee (deputy sheriff) hit & killed a 15 year old child on his bicycle going to school a few weeks ago. No emergency, danger, just another employee breaking the law in his government vehicle placing the public in danger. The child, after a 40 page report, is at fault. Why? Well you see this poor employee was tricked because the child was wearing a dark shirt, did not have all of the prescribed lights on his bicycle, and the ultimate sin – he was not wearing a helmet as the speeding vehicle hit him head on.
    Was the employee charged with vehicle manslaughter? No way! What did he get? A carless driving citation!
    Now how did this happen… um well you know law enforcement is very stressful & you know it is hard to stay out of bicycle lanes when speeding and typing on your computer.
    Did any law enforcement union (fraternal, associations, councils) personally express their regrets to the parents of Austin Dukette? No! Help with the cost of the funeral? You must be joking! Remember the law is twisted & broken to protect employees not you. Thank you.

    @ The Knave
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    Funny. I recall last year, the local law enforcement industry deployed teams of snipers to roof tops; it was documented by one of those watcher groups on video.
    I cannot comprehend how these young people can be so stupid and self destructive. Our children, two still in college, due not have time for drunken criminality since grade point average and working a job are the focus of the efforts.
    Thank you.

    @ Proverbs17-12NLT
    Sir,
    The party in control of the government in your state has little to do with the lawlessness of the law enforcement industry.
    I live in FL, keeping to this particular form of crime (failing to perform their “duty” and accessory to (in FL) felony reckless driving) in their taxpayer purchased car is just the tip of the iceberg.
    Not only is the public in constant danger from law enforcement employees committing violations while in government vehicles, here we have thousands of private vehicles with PBA/ PAL/ support law enforcement license plates. All of these private vehicles are given a free pass on just about every infraction. In addition we have family members of law enforcement employees placing a black sticker with a horizontal blue line on their cars. Why? This is to inform road privates or gangs at a check point to let the vehicle pass because the occupants are protected by the members of this industry.
    Tell me a gain how this is not a violation of their oath? Tell me again how all law enforcement employees are “good”.
    When standards and the oath are not applied you have rampant criminality.
    Great evil begins and is sustained by thousands of small innocuous actions everyday.
    Pray for our country and for oath keeping law enforcement employees to put an end to the crime wave.
    Thank you.

    @ Rev
    Interesting observation. What about the reverse of this encounter? There is ample evidence, even that admitted in courts, that law abiding citizens are killed by compliancy (thinking there is no threat) when confronted by law enforcement.
    Sorry, I forgot. The union and management line is no one is worth losing one of us.
    A sad state of affairs but how is it corrected?
    Thank you.

    @ jakartaman
    Sir,
    Sadly we live in a time when women, girls, and boys are preyed upon by vultures. Sometimes those vultures are in law enforcement employee clothes; something that is not unheard of here in FL.
    The best advice (something I and my wife do but until recently one of our college student daughters didn’t do) video everything when confronted by law enforcement, try to have the encounter in a well lite area with witnesses around, and if possible stay in front of the dash cam at all times.
    In our county here in FL; a sheriff law enforcement employee was caught in the act, fired, tried and convicted for sodomizing a 16 year old boy multiple times in a public restroom. He received the minimum jail time, minimum parole time, and now is being given his retirement. Why you ask? Because he did not have his uniform on when committing sodomy and had convinced this poor child that he should enjoy being sodomized, after all it was just sex!
    The conundrum for the knee-jerk crowd here is; law enforcement employees pretend they are always on duty but are not willing to live with following the oath 24 hours a day sometimes not even 40 hours a week
    I wish we could count on morality being the norm. However, this country has lost its’ way in denying simple truths and we all pay the price for it.
    My advice, record everything, never travel alone, and pray.
    Thank you.

    @ mertmag
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    As with all of the preceding comments, I too think the citizen did an admirable job. Further, seeing a law enforcement employee that seems to be within height and weight standards, articulate, and reasonable is all noteworthy.
    I think what is lost on people is the real story; law enforcement entitlement. By this I mean the supervision of this department not caring about policy, rules, procedures, the law. This employee is not at fault – it is in fact an indictment of the chain of supervision. Since law enforcement enjoys play acting as military wouldn’t it be wonderful if the military dictum: the commander is responsible for all his commend does and fails to do, was employed in this instance?
    When not even the little stuff is done according to policy, SOP, regulations, and the law what do you think happens frequently when it comes to the big stuff?
    An honest, mature, efficient, effective, and respected law enforcement industry begins with doing the little things right and following your oath 24 7.
    Thank you.

    @ VRW Conspirator
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    With respect I disagree with you completely.
    If a man or woman takes an oath before God and man and violates that oath by acts of commission or omission, then that man or woman has no honor, courage, are dedication to duty.
    The hardest thing in this life to do is live an oath because it requires sacrifice. Sacrifice is not the norm in the human condition.
    I am not happy that I have taken men to courts martial and/ or ended careers for failure to follow their oath. I do not place myself above another man. I place God and my sworn oath above all men. I am a sinner and not an example for anyone to follow. However, when and until the men and women in the institutions that are a party to this begin to live their oath 24 7, nothing will reverse the decline.
    God bless America.
    Thank you.

    @ 1FreeVoice
    Well done.
    A beautiful, reasoned, and thought provoking comment.
    Your experiment, when done, reveals the depths of depravity and self delusion we have sink to.
    Thank you.

    @ SanityCheck
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    “Bad leadership propagates bad behavior.” Excellent observation.
    There is a moral decay that is overtaking all of our institutions and is turning our society into a scene from the later days of the Rome Empire.
    To my mind this is more than “bad” leadership. Immorality placed in a position of power without accountability is fatal to most societies throughout history.
    Rome lived upon its principal till ruin stared it in the face. Industry is the only true source of wealth, and there was no industry in Rome. By day the Ostia road was crowded with carts and muleteers, carrying to the great city the silks and spices of the East, the marble of Asia Minor, the timber of the Atlas, the grain of Africa and Egypt; and the carts brought out nothing but loads of dung. That was their return cargo. ~ Winwood Reade
    Thank you.

    @ ultraright
    Sir/ Ma’am,
    Thank you for the note.
    “We understand that when evil flourishes life is endangered and when benevolent authority is despised, evil chaos will rule.”
    I am in complete agreement with this statement – drawn from?
    My comments and line of reasoning has to due with the policy and the competence of this shooting.
    I agree with your use of the term “benevolent”. It is unfortunate, no actually much more, that the authority that once bound us together has supervisors that in fact contributed to morphing this authority into malevolency.
    The policy, training, equipment, supervision, and culture of the industry (this is not directed at employee Wilson – but can be seen in the organizational actions post shooting) feed into and assist those working to destroy society and the republic.
    “I sincerely pity anyone who is had to take another’s life.” Thank you. As a Christian I do not ask, want nor accept your pity. If you are a believer, I humbly ask for your prayers for this sinner and all of those that have had to take life in service to this country.
    Thank you.
