Number 1, the idiot was shot because he was trying to run over police officers to get away.
Number 2, they may not have found any pills, but they sure found lots of powders, and manufacturing equipment.
Number 3, they probably shut down your suppliers.

Thank you so much for your very intelligent input on this case....maybe you should be an officer of law, or are you? You seem to know the facts so maybe you could answer some remaining questions i have about what it is that happened that night! How many rounds were fired? How far did "the ideot" get from point A (before acceleration) to point B (when truck came to complete stop) during this 'attempt'? Oh, thats right, you cant answer those questions can you?! Well, here, i can. 37+ rounds were fired, 5 of which wounded the suspect, and truck moved from point A to point B a total of FOUR FEET!!!! Now, youre the only one that is looking like an "ideot" here buddy:)

Listen lady, anyone who knows Dwayne Lansdown, can tell you that HE is NOT a 'meth head' Maybe you should wake up and look around yourself, maybe you and your family should get shot by the police! I bet you go to church every sunday,huh? what a joke, screw you lady, nobody deserves to be shot, no body deserves to be hurt, and EVERYBODY DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE!!!! What if your kid(s) become meth heads someday??? Do you think they will deserve a second chance? lol..... too bad cops didnt kill all the hateful cowards, like you, that have never made a mistake, right?

By the way, its not the local "cops" in question over all this. It was the K.B.I. that wrongfully opened fire on an unarmed man! They had no probable cause to do so..........

Dwayne Lansdown was shot in the back, as a former medic I know what an entrance wound is and what an exit wound does, the man was shot in the back .. the story the KBI made up was to cover their behinds because they had just ambushed and

attempted to murder a man without justification and after shooting him in the back they went to the front of the truck and fired more rounds into the truck striking Dwayne more times to make it look like he drove at them but that doesn't explain his shooting from behind, its all a cover up by the rogue organization of the KBI in cooperation with local police departments.

total number of shots fired was reported at 40 plus rounds, they continued shooting at Dwayne even after he was on the ground.

The so called meth bust is a myth and doesnt exist to the extent that they claim it does plus it does not justify the attempted murder of one of our local men by rogue agents of the KBI who should be held accountable and sent to prison like the criminals they are plus anyone else who

tainted themselves with the Nazi type operation conducting themselves like Nazi storm troopers for nothing .. this whole things was made up and blown out of proportion so Steve Six might look good for a few extra votes at the ballot box .. not worth taking the life of a good man and wonderful father who would do anything to help anyone.

I was left with the strong impression that this was a terrorist operation to deprive citizens of their constitutional rights plus murder, we should all be outraged and we need to speak up against this injustice.

I'm a political science major so when politicians speak I'm usually believing they are up to no good and sure enough Steve Six is a liar.
This guy is a corrupt as they come and as crooked as they get.
what Steve Six was really saying was that mass operations where under way to deprive citizens of their civil rights under the guise of a hoax, there was never any so called mountains of meth
found it was all a witch hunt to terrorize and deprive citizens of their civil rights under the color of authority and including the attempted murder of anyone they decide to shoot to death.
for those of you who have any political experience at all it is known as the straw man gig.
the majority of those arrested was done illegally and the majority of the charges are bogus but they got the guns and the crooked Judges to go alone with this mass round up of the new Jew and placed in the new concentration camps called Jails and striped of their belongings, I love semantics because they help explain the truth of the new Nazi's called the KBI.

Dwayne Lansdown is not an idiot, he is a kind and sweet man, a loving father and would give his shirt off his back to anyone so for you to slander him strikes me in a raw nerve because I know the man plus unlike you I don't believe most anything that is used as typical political police jargon. unlike you I just don't jump into the band wagon of public support for the ambush and attempted murder of a man who they allege was doing this or that, if you are going to take the Attorney Generals comments or his aids as gods truth, sorry the Attorney General Steve Six is no god and neither is anyone who works under his Nazi operation and rogue organization.

unlike you I will stand up for what is right, you can take the side of evil if you want .. that is your choice.

People listen. If you work for the law anyway shape or form, they can lie and cover anything they want to and get away with it. Everyone makes mistakes and have to pay for their mistakes.
But wait, anyone for the law, they cover up and move on. If they make any mistakes, they get transferred to another job or another county to cover up. Also, why are some people(Bates,Ball,Chami) who was manufacturing in the home plus selling and they only get $25,000 bond each. But Wait a minute. Just last week the other group got $50,000 bone each. I guess you can manufacture meth and get a lighter bond.

Okay, so I am sure all of you know Lisa Pankaskie and Melissa Huffman. Now, these so called "informants" have been getting their second chance over and over and over again, enough is enough, so now they can do whatever they want because they are "informants" and I feel responsible for Dwayne's death. But on the other hand if he was such a good husband and father, why was he having "dealings" with these two people. It sure is funny that they are related to practically the whole town of Buffalo and the majority of their family is on Meth, but since they are informants I guess their family is "safe" too. Also, why is the law inforcement "intentionally" putting a child in danger by allowing them to operate a Meth lab on their property???? Everyone knows that Lisa's yard has been full of stolen property for many years now, even from people in Buffalo and everyone is too scared to go get their belongings. So how many chances should people like this really get????

I do not understand why "everyone" from Buffalo is being attacked here. I was born and raised in Buffalo and turned out just fine, same as my other siblings. I have a lot of family that are from Buffalo still living there, and they are fine upstanding citizens. Come on people lets keep some perspective on this topic.
By the way, Dwayne we grew up together thow i was a little older... My heart goes out to you and your family. No law abiding citizen deserves what you and they have gone through. HOWEVER, if you have done any of what they are accusing you of... then shame on you! You are better than any of that crap.

I know this is a fairly old topic, but I am new and have to put my two cents in.
I have a relative who used to be very heavy into meth and anything else available. The relative had hung around with the Lansdowns....he got his dope through them. When the relative cleaned up his act, he admitted that the Lansdown brothers were all a mess. You mess with one and they all would come down on you. All drug related of course. It was also said that they tend to snitch on others, so they always got a slap on the wrist and/or a very light sentence. There was another person who would run around with these people, a woman. She lives near Buffalo. She has been arrested MANY times for meth and other illegal drugs. Yet she has never gone to prison. And she ends up driving a better car after she bonds out. Go figure. I do believe she is a snitch. I realize that the law enforcement uses snitches to get more drug busts. But should those that are snitches, get away with doing the drugs.....just because they are snitches? Dopers do NOT like snitches, and eventually something bad happens to the snitches.
Anyway....I doubt if this will even be read, since there haven't been recent posts. Just sayin what I know and don't wanna step on anyone's toes. I don't know everything that went down with the shooting and I don't claim to. No matter what....if someone is manufacturing dope, you know they are also selling it. And if they are selling it, there are lots of people...including kids...that are using it. And there lies the problems.....
