Looking at the picture provided in the WLS news link, someone should have grabbed that shotgun from him covering the UNCOCKED hammer with one hand and split his skull with it.

I was going to forecast that he was a local dumba$$ and would be caught.

Yep, yep, yep. I'm not going to congratulate the entire RPD though - the jag offs deserve no thanks. But to any good, decent officers of RPD involved - good job.

Also I would like to hope that this crook is charged, prosecuted, hopefully found guilty and sentenced to the maximum for every single offense they can pin on him. I mean even ticket him if he parked illegally while pulling the robberies or failed to signal while leaving.

IMO because of his willingness to take whatever he pleased that does not belong to him, he should lose all of his property. Good for the goose good for the gander.......

The breaks have to stop for the crooks.

Well he is a Lockport boy. I see him booked into WC Jail on Saturday. He must have decided it was a good idea to fight with the officers because his booking mug shows some nice facial bruises.(Not enough for me but a good start).

Charges including:

ARMED ROBBERY (FELONY)
DISARMING A PEACE OFFICER (FELONY)
AGG UNLAW USE OF WEAPON (FELONY)

Plus (just for me?) VEH ALL OFFENSES

1000-to-1 I'll bet drugs are involved (i.e. him being on them)

Little idiot was stopped arrested only a short distance from his listed address.

LOL because it isn't that far from where his new address is going to be!

I guess we should recognize the parents of this predatory animal too with a GOOD JOB!

Almost forgot.

The little punks name is Jeffery T. Schumacker.

But when he gets to his new "house" his name is going to be Bubba's Beeeeotch.

Do you know him? Do you think maybe he has family who is concerned and is wondering what kind of punk would be leaving posts like this about someone? Usually the first to judge are bad too. Sometimes people get caught up with the wrong crowd and make wrong decisions and then after being cleaned up they turn out be great people. How would your mother feel if she read this stuff about you???

Sorry but how do you think that clerks family feels knowing this freak could have very well killed him/her just for being on the job?
Wrong decisions that involve the possibility of taking a life? Thats a pretty far stretch for sympathy.
I'll save mine for someone else.

You are right! I am sure the clerk was terrified, I have been in a similar situation as the clerk and it is absolutely terrifying. I am not saying what Mr. Schumacker did was right, but unless you know him or the family personally let's be a little careful with what is said! Let's hope you don't judge a book by it's cover, because if so then you have never read a good book and I feel very sorry for you!

well i judged a book by its cover, what ever his problem was or is he still could have hurt someone and almost hurt the officer that was trying to catch him. I have no sypmathy. If it waas my son I would be hurt ashamed. I would stand by him because he was my son. But I would want answers to what the heck was going on in his head.

You are so right! I am sure his family is wondering what the heck he was thinking! I have a 12 year old son and I know if he was in a situation like this I would be hurt, mad and ashamed of what he did. I know we all have to be thankful that no one was hurt.

Also if anyone has the actual article about it please repost it.
Thanks!
