<quoted text>Sorry, but that explanation for Franklin's absence makes no sense. By the time he would have gotten there, both victims would have already been on their way to the hospital. Plus Chief James was onsite when he talked to the media.
so was franklin i know i live in the community

you do not need a warrant if invited in the house,or in this case the garage. The female suspect was not the home owner, but the 24 y/o child of the home owners. From my understanding the police were already talking to the home owners, who were more than compliant,when she came out in her psychotic state...... and why is a 24 year old still living at home with mom and dad?

If this winds up costing the City of Belmont a pile of cash from a lawsuit, it will most likely be the end of Chief Franklin's tenure as Police Chief.

If I were him, I would have opted to let someone else handle the media, so that I could keep the parents and keep them calm, so they don't file a lawsuit.

The first sentence only and the parents were compliant yes. As for the daughter's psychotic state of mind, incorrect and inaccurate!

Having a son living with momma and diddy is another story. Grow up.

I am grown up...unlike 24 y/o's who lives with their parents. just sayin'
at 24 I was 2 years out of college, already had my career started, and had already purchased a home on my own. I never "mooched" off mom and dad.

I didn't know Franklin had such a broad vocabulary and to my knowledge of basic law and our civil rights, being beligerent does not warrant telling a young girl to hit the ground as if she was a terrorist. So basically our men in blue are afraid of a little girl shooting subs by "accident" in the victims garage where the bpd had no place being until that warrant showed up. If I were a scumbag attorney I would take this one pro bono. A mega jackpot. In fact, I will advise my fellow neighbors to make that call.
I GUESS THE VICTIMS' TOOK "NBD" ADVICE. READ THE NEWEST THREAD. GOOD FOR THEM. THEY WILL HAVE MONEY COMING OUT OF THEIR ASSES. I WISH A WERE A DIRTBAG LAWYER IN THIS EASY WIN.

Unfortunately, all that money that will be coming out of their asses will be coming from the taxes that I pay.

Let me say something is not right.... If the police are in my yard or whatever I am not going to assume that I am being robbed or my house is being broke into...... All you HATERS go out and spend one night out there trying to figure out in a split second if someone is on your side or is wanting to kill you...
