In this country we have a system of where a person goes to court and is proven guilty or innocent. Why the witch hunt? They could of easily shot tranquillzers or gassed him or in other words they could of taken him in and gave him a fair trial.

What about the family of Freeland, what about donations and checks to them too? Why was this information not posted to be fair and balanced? THIS WAS A BLACK MAN and he did deserve his constitutional rights regardless of his color. Regardless of all he was a SUSPECT.

This elates me. I just wish all 110 bullets had busted this animal's butt.
Just think how much money the SWAT team saved the taxpayers.
Three cheers for the SWAT team and Sheriff Judd.

What is the matter with this Country is people like the first post.
I would like for that idiot to go into the thick woods with a tranquilizer gun and shoot this animal, wait for several minutes and peek around a tree to see if he was asleep.
He got the same trial the deputy got.
There was no question about his guilt and I don't care whether he was BLACK, WHITE, GREEN OR PURPLE.
Get a life "concerned". People are sick of this race card issue about everything on the face of the earth.

Dear Concerned,
You have to be the most out of touch person with reality that I have ever heard from. Take a tranquilizer gun in that heavy wooded area after an armed gunman that has already murdered a Deputy? Would you do that? Do you think this is a race issue? There is no such thing as fair (for a suspect) that executes a Law Enforcement Officer. Why don't you come down and pay for this scums funeral so we as tax payers don't have to. As for his rights, this P.O.S got exactly what he deserved.

Its about time law enforcement puts the emphasis back where it belongs, on enforcement! Lets face it, the judicial system in this country has been lenient on convicted predators for way too long. I very much approve of a country where the predators have a reason to fear the police. When the police become aggressive they are a true deterent to crime. besides, the chance of this Florida dirtbag becoming a recidivet offender is non-existant

Dear Sadded Day and James,
You are right. The blacks have a long way to go.
Since 1964, you have had the same education facilities as anyone else and you can't even speak and write the English language.
Get off your soap box and realize this was a mean, hardened criminal that 24 hours before he was killed had executed a law enforcement officer, his dog and tried to kill another officer.
You can rest assured I don't give a damn if he even has a funeral and I don't give a damn about his family.
Why wasn't his family at the scene to try to pusuade his to surrender.
A bunch of rednecks bagging a Nigg?
Your are Sick.
Get real, get a life and get off your race card soap box.

Come to Polk Co. and shoot a sheriff and your black ass will find the same fate as your fallen brother. Are blacks never wrong in the eyes of other blacks? Why would you defend a murdering drug dealer? Just because he is black? There will never be peace when you have blacks commiting all of the crimes, and other blacks supporting them. Why don't you go out today and start a trust fund for black drug dealers. I'm sure Jesse Jackson already has something similar. I'm sure it is just a matter of time before he shows up to support this piece of shit.<quoted text>

You are an idiot: Freeland is an animal that made his decision to kill a cop and die. He deserves nothing but what you got......

I cant believe that some people are actually supporting this animal. But I take that back even animals only kill for a reason, this suspect is not even an animal he is a MAGGOT!!! He made his decision and died by it. The fact he was black has nothing to do with it so DROP IT. He was waiting to kill more cops so they did what they had to, to survive. You go out there and deal with these maggots day in and day out and see if you are so liberal when they try and kill you no matter what color you are.......... so Sadded day and Concerned get a life, drop the race issue and look at the real issues...bad guys come in all colors and die in all colors.......

Thank You "honestly".
I am so sick of the race card issues.
I am sick of Miss Black America
I am so sick of the Black Caucus
I am so Sick of the NAACP who does nothing for the black people, only fill their pockets with poor blacks money.
I am sick of Jessie Jackson who in my opinion is another POS.
Guess what?
Some day we will know how many of the SWAT officers were black.

The only concern I have is why they only hit him with about 70% of the bullets fired ( pardon my math -it may be off some )

I am so sick of the stupidity. Who else will you call at 2am in the morning when someone is breaking into your house?!? Law Enforcement, that's who!!
Yes, there are some bad cops, they are a disgrace to the uniform. But...for every bad cop, there stands an officer of the law. One who is willing to risk his or her life to help a stranger. Indeed to save the life of a stranger.
As a native born AMERICAN who just happens to be of African ancestry, I am sick and tire of the race card. "Oh the poor underprivildeged black person." I am a retired public school teacher. I am sick of children who's highest aspirations in life is to aquire a "golden bridge" for their teeth, a new pair of Nike tennis shoes (You can get a good pair of tennis shoes at Payless or Target!) and an Escalade. Why not spend that money on getting an education? Yes racsim exsist. Yes there are people who hate based on the color of one's skin. Yes. Yes. Yes. Get on with life! When will we all just be AMERICANS and PROUD OF IT.

Yes he did desereve his rights...until he raised a gun at the officers who were looking for him. Then he had no rights left at all. After shooting 2 officers and a police dog do you think they should have waited for him to fire the first shot this time???? I can also assure you that after what he had already done, they did not give a rat's ass what color he was. Just that they get him off the street.

The only reason there will not be peace James is because people like you cannot face reality.
I don't know how old you are. You are apparently black.
I am 60 years old and I have seen the progress that has been made for blacks in my lifetime
You sick racists probably have not taken any advantage of the opportunities offered you.
Everything is wrong in the system if the blacks aren't on the top echelon of everything.
Two great blacks who are living today, who have taken advantage of their opportunities are Bill Cosby and Colin Powell and they both hate the likes of you that have no command of the English Language.
Your ancestors were slaves which was the way of life in the early years of our Country. Too Bad.
Nobody here today had a damned thing to do with that.
I am sure you would love to be in your ancestors country today that is devastated with AIDS and so your children are so malnourished they look like someone stuck and air hose up their ass and forgot to turn it off. If you notice, they have flies all over them too.
But, I would guess you think this is the fault of us Honkie Assed whites here in America, my home Country and yours too today.
Get a life.
