  1. This is a terrible thing that has taken place within the community.

    We are all praying that both officers will be back in good health soon.

    Thank you also to Bill Prim for posting the pictures of the suspect on his facebook page.

  2. Sorry, Cindy–but I reserve my prayers for those deputies Scott opened fire on.

    I do have sympathy for Scott’s family since, by all appearances, they had zero knowledge of Scott’s intentions.

    I hope this ends quickly, swiftly and without more bloodshed.

    Thoughts and prayers for all the LEOs involved.

  3. This terrible incident happened on Oct. 16.

    Bill Prim acknowledged the incident and posted on his Facebook page a picture of the shooter and warned the public and showed concern for the 2 Deputies who were shot.

    Has anyone told Jim Harrison about this? He knew but never acknowledged anything about the incident.

    Why wasn’t Harrison interested in 2 Deputies being shot,why wasn’t he concerned about the community?
