A simple knock on the door and no one would of been shot! It was just a poker game, many of them every night here n chatt! I just wonder why this one was busted when theres lots bigger ones the police are aware of that have been running much longer than this one.... I think the cops overeacted and r lucky only one person got shot!

Were you there? If you weren't then you have no idea if they knocked or not! I think you need to read up on the story a little more before you open your big mouth and show how stupid you are!

Is this remark to me?

If so, I'm harsh because I know these police officers and if it comes down to them or these stupid criminals then the cops should be the ones going home to their families at night!

Anyone dumb enough to point a gun at a cop should be shot! Now why did they just wound-him????

This type of illegal-activity,“Gambling” has been going on in this city, since I was born! Machines in the backroom, poker games, bookies etc…Anyone who has lived here for any period knows it! Hell, there’s an establishment in Lookout Valley with poker rooms in the back and regularly scheduled high-stakes games. Remember when” Walt’s” got raided? How about the place on the side of Missionary Ridge, to name just a few. These particular establishments have been around for a very long-time, and what occurs within their walls is far from secret! So, one must ask why is this allowed? I knew of one location that ran back room established gambling illegal machines, for over 20 years! Then, out-of-the-blue,“WHAM”- busted!

The police knew all about it, elected officials knew about it, district attorneys knew about it, Judges even knew about it… why allow it to exist, then suddenly, put authorities in harm’s way to shut-it down?

Who's stupid here? The Cops or the criminals....both are being used.... It appears, we have one true "will-be" criminal, a 32 year old black guy, completely eaten-up with stupidity. I'd be very impressed if this idiot can wipe his own ass! Then, some locals with money, who like to gamble, but again, stupidly...I think, don't know for sure on that one. Questions: how many times has this "dumb-ass" attended this game? How much cash did he have on him? And finally, who's kid did he rape?
