Towing companies are among the most despicable, underhanded, thieving groups of people I've ever encountered. sounds like they try to shake down the wrong guy.

Not for nothing but if what he said were true and needed drugs for his daughter and she needed them now i would be very pissed of to if they wouldn't let me get to them. But lets be real here, they were probably drugs he stole or were using and didn't want the person who ownes the car to find them. Still a level headed person wouyld have called the cops and asked them to meet me there because i was going to get them and things might get heated and i was going to need there help.

not that I condone his actions, but these towing companies are really bad.
They act like they own you and your car and exploit people. I've never heard one positive story about a towing company's demeanor. Rehardless of ownership, if his daughter's medications were in that vehicle, it would seem to me that a few simple questions of name, medication name and dosage, etc.. would have let him help his daughter. Instead the demagogue at the place chose to play chicken with the man. Bad move I guess.

Take the guns away from the nut cases in Florida. Our legislators have paved the way for more and more shootings with accepting gun lobby dollars. Crist & his cabinet need to be investigated for corruption, they have destroyed our state.

Most tow companies use unscrupulous tactics to steal money from drivers. And the city and counties are in on it! And there is nothing you can do about it which is why people are taking matters into their own hands. Let's shoot a few more of them and this problem will be solved. And did you see the idiot sheriff? He was whining like a little baby - "they had powerful guns". Yes they did ya turkey of a sheriff and it is a good thing. How else are we supposed to get fair treatment. I am sure you would love for us citizens to give up our firearms so you can force your malfeasance upon us. NO Way Jose! I bet it is you who gets the kick backs from these unscrupulous tow companies. I mean, it is you and your crony deputies who allow these town operators first access to any vehicle you see fit with no recourse. First our great government takes away any extra income we have and then they keep all of the power. How much longer can we take it?

This was bound to happen. I used to live in Woodbine and these idiots would come out like sharks at 11:59 pm to tow everyone with a truck or one inch of a wheel on the street. I categorically do not feel one bit sorry for what happened. You reap what you sow.

I bet those two women are going to be a whole lot nicer to those fortunate recipients of their services.
Friggin cop wannabes.
They tow for a couple of law enforcement agencies and their all high and mighty.
Don't get me wrong the guy was most likely in need of his fix in the car, However you just got to judge when to stick to policy and when to drop it.

If this guy is the one who was involved in a crush he should have been granted limited access to his car just to retrieve the meds and Docs. Problem is when you get your vehicle towed these GREEDY companies try to use it to make a killing...which is what almost happened.
I have to give props to the shooter on this one! Anyone who works for a Towing Company is a complete scumbag! And anyone who has ever had their car towed knows what I am talking about!

I think EXTORTION is the 1st thing they teach you on Training Day at Towing Companies! It's amazing how many little extra fees pop up when you go to retrieve your car........and even if this guy showed proof the car was his, you know there was no way he was getting his daughters meds unless he paid some sort of extra fee for them!!!

Kathryn Gadoury, you got exactly what you deserved you piece of garbage..........and i hope God has mercy on your soul!

It is EXTREMELY important to note that the REASON the vehicle was in the Lake Park Towing lot was because it had been involved in a crash. Hence, my official posts..........

Yes, there sure are plenty of crashes. It would not be as bad if that was ALL that was wrong with auto vehicles. But unfortunately there are a myriad of other HUGE problems also. We (taxpayers and consumers) are literally also paying out BILLIONS of dollars (with a capital "B") for the infrastructure (roads, lighting, signs, bridges, guardrails, traffic jams, road maintenance, repairs, traffic enforcement, Road Rangers, emergency responders, parking facilities, junk yards, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.) for auto vehicles to get around. And, our heavy dependence on foreign oil of which auto vehicles is the major cause is devastating us as a nation. Our Insurance business "landscape" for our auto vehicles is going to change dramatically. This change in the Insurance business "landscape" is evidently going to bring bad hardships to owning and driving auto vehicles. Plus, other additional negative aspects of auto vehicle use are: 1. the lost productivity (inability to read, study, work on computer) that each solo driver sustains in the daily commute; 2. the lack of physical exercise (drive instead of walk, bicycle to station / bus stop); and, 3. ease of access to fast food drive throughs, thereby contributing to increased incidence of obesity. All of these very serious types of problems, including the number and frequency of these tragic crashes, you will never hear much about from the automobile industry, AAA (American Automobile Associaton), the travel and tourist industry, the oil companies, the FDOT (Florida Department of Transportation, the USDOT (United States Department of Transportation, etc., etc., etc.). Get rid of auto vehicles. We will be safer, wealthier, healthier, and happier.

Owning a tow company equals having a license to steal. They always deal in cash. No oversight. The IRS should investigate them all.

Right. I'm suprised too why this doesn't happen more often with tow companies. They are truly criminals and by their operating procedures, its hardly empathy they deserve when their abuses of the public come back to bite them...or in this case, shoot them.
But this guy used an AK-47. Wow.
AK-47s, geez, these guns are scarey, scarey, scarey. At least the Russians had good engineering, while they ran a failed economy into the ground.
Something to think about towing companies: My son's truck was stolen from in front of the house. He reported to it police and insurance co. when he found it gone when he went to go work in the morning. Eighteen [18] days later he received a letter from the towing company telling him they had his truck. GET THIS, the towing company had towed the truck the day after it was stolen! They had the truck with its VIN #, but they did not report to the police, ever, my son called the cops after getting the letter. So after 18 days of storage charges they send a letter. Maybe they stole it! Scam?

I hate tow companies too. Bottom feeders. The guy didn't bring enough weapons. A LAW might have gotten the job done.
