Two Tampa Police Dept. brothers conducted a traffic stop this am. Both shot, one dead and the other not doing good. No names released since they are still looking for family members. All started on a tag violation.

    They will need it. The last update is the one still alive is on life support. I don't have the grim totals, but one has 4 kids, One wife is pregnant. Every time this happens it makes me think of the times a citizen complains when the prick cop has his hand on his gun during their traffic stop. "I only had a tail light out".

    Morning Al:

    So sorry to hear this (again, too soon since the loss of another officer). Our prayers are with the two officers families and their TPD family.

    We need to get the Tampa Eggheads together again soon.

    Have a GREAT day!

    Al, I didn't know you were a policeman. Please be careful. What a horrible thing to happen to those two families.
  • I just saw the news on CNN. 100% of my grief to the families, 100% of my rage to your comrades hunting down the scum.

    Also, thanks for being out there.

    Very sad indeed. The news was just reporting the one officer's 9-month pregnant wife went into labor today. My heart goes out to these families along with their TPD families.
  • Rib BonesRib Bones Posts: 449
    The news just made a correction....having contractions, not in labor. Also, they believe the woman behind the wheel has now been arrested.

    Such a shame - I pray God's peace for their families. There just aren't any words to adequately express the feelings that come to mind -
