Bringing light to the murders in memphis doesnt cause a bad shows all that we're aware of our problems and we're willing to work to solve them. Congrats to Toney!! But the city council members need to pull they're heads out of the sand. Memphis has crime with or without "The First 48"...canceling the show only allows them to run from Memphis' serious issues.

I worked with Toney in OCU in the late 80's and he was very dependable and a good cop. I never heard a bad word about him. I'm very glad he made it...he deserves it.

Congratulations Deputy Director Armstrong...I have watched you on First 48 and you are a crime solver.

I live in Nevada now, but I am a Memphis Native and it is refreshing to see someone who really cares about the criminals and the victims.

Congrats to you. It is an honor to have you as second in command of the MPD. I watched you for years on The First 48 and was always impressed with you and the way you handled situations. You are an inspiration.

Many cities are on the "First 48". What other cities don't have is a drunk Council Members at meetings. When are any ethics standards applied to "those" people.

One thing that we must remember is that all of the crime that's committed in Memphis aren't done solely by Memphians. We have a transplant of criminals from big cities that are bringing their evil ways to Memphis. Memphis is a great city, we will get rid of the riff raff!!!!!

Congratulation Mr. Armstrong, on your accompolishments. I wish you and your fellow officers much success...

Memphis needs someone to convict murderers. Memphis has got a bunch of these no good people who need to be put to death.
