Alice, who's paying for Lopez's hospital bill?

Is his under his mom's medical family plan? Bet you the taxpayers are going to foot the bill. No wonda the hospitals are losing money. Even the Government and State are shortchanging the hospitals for its services.

I can't even begin to comprehend the emotional weight carried by any police officer who has to shoot someone. And, it's a tragedy that so many folks are growing up without strong ohana and are unable to manage their lives and be responsible for their actions. Peace begins at home and we're all accountable to our community.

You are an idiot. Wait a minute, a stupid idiot. That's better, lol.
that means a lot from someone with no consonants in their name. you must have a lot of money to buy all of those vowels. If your last name is Uu, you are most likely a squirrel fish like I originally suspected.

So much hatred for a complete stranger. Male cops are not allowed to hit a female perp. Even if she hits them. A female officer would need to step in and hit the female..........
That's ridiculous. What are you talking about?!?!

The idea of going for a head shot is a bad idea: smaller target- if you miss the bullet keeps going thru windows and endangers others.

Too bad you can't burn out those tweaker's pleasure centers for ALL drugs.

You're so pathetic, I don't know where to begin. You need some serious help, pal. Better yet, why don't you apply to become a cop to see how it really is. On the other hand, I don't think you have the intelligence or maturity to do a good job so please don't apply. Cretins like yourself end up with a police record.
David tried, but failed miserably at trying to join the ranks of HPD. He has since taken every opportunity to disparage the gallant efforts of the men and women of HPD whenever he can from a computer keyboard. He is a loser and always will be. Sour grapes... I feel sorry for him. NOT!

the one cop got beat up by a chick?
sent to the hospital because you got hit by a girl. what a candy.****. maybe you should have shot her too since you cannot defend yourself and you were probably in fear for your life.(and should have been.)
when you can get taken out by a bi.tch slap you have no business protecting the public.
ralph machio can fend off a 25 year old girl, heck, so can mr. miayagi and he's dead. you better practice some wax on wax off there super cop.....or are you smoking too much pakalolo like the rest of hpd....makes your reflexes slow there officer leon spinks.
try crossing guard at an elementary school. they might not be able to reach your donut hole and you'll just have to worry about your knee caps, and those most likely have f.ag pads on them anyway for all that ground work hpd performs on each other.
enjoy you time off while your face heels. your ego should be terminally ill about now but im sure you can go beat someone down to get it back later though, after your booboo heals. funny how the fight is always easier when the other guy is handcuffed for you hpd cowards.(and as you guys know, their **** is much more accessible for your batons and broomsticks too!)
enjoy that black eye that hanna montana delivered you loser. the girl weighs like 115 lbs. apply at wackenhut asap.
you must and should be the laughing stock of HPD.
Awwwww..you are such a pathetic thing! All this bitterness you got pent up inside of ya' sure sounds like your significant other or lover ranoff with a cop or did you just fail the HPD recruit class? HA! LooooooooooooooooSER!

I feel that people like you using that statement have a frikkin problem. What does that crook have to do with you personally (not your imagined spin on being responsible and justly under control of the world's affairs)?
N-O-T-H-I-N-G.
...and take that to the bank with you.
cause we have to feed and house him and his family is probably on EBT..LOLO
