Just walked by the Elks lodge. One of those places that you'd never know exists if you only frequent the mall during the day.

So why is the Elks getting all the publicity when Fellini's next door has such a "clean" reputation?? And what was it that brought these guys to blows??

Because no one shot anyone at Fellini's.

A 22 year old (and other youngsters I'm sure) "jumping" a 56 year old? Disgraceful. Perhaps he will learn to respect his elders in the future.

Doubtful, not the first time, just making his bones.

He probably disrespected him by making eye contact for more than a couple seconds, thus justifying the beat down and subsequent shooting. Remember Elks: No snitch on a fellow Elk!

What you bring up has always stumped me . We call the VSP in for a car wreck ,VSP being of the better trained with vast more tools and support.

We call the Sheriff's office for a murder or missing child.

It's backwards in many ways. I do like the idea in small towns because of the closer contact deputies have with people . It seems to flow and handle the everyday BS well ,Not everybody gets dragged off to jail , like me ... you get a few saves when there is communication. It feels like a different kind of communication in the smaller areas. Pupulations are growing . They can't do this much anymore.

I want the VSP first and no offence to the more local hometown deputies.

When certain things meet a well established criteria ( crisis involving threat to human life.), I want the VSP FIRST.

A quick survey of local court dockets remarkably reveals what upstanding citizens both men are. The loser in all this will be the cop who did his job to stop an attempted murderer. He will have to contend with the threat of frivolous lawsuits and Monday morning quarterbacking by people with no understanding of what it is like to have to make such calls. It would appear that this is justified (shooting a man that had already shot somebody and despite commands advancing again with his weapon on the other guy). Too bad Longo can't be counted on to have his back. Once the political winds change he will be left to his own devices. It isn't a coincidence that there is an exodus of officers from the city.

What shooting was justified.

There were two .

Maybe two justified.

One is just going to pay way better in the end.

Moral of the story: If you need to shoot someone, make sure first shot counts. There should not be a need for a second shot. Don't be a budget warrior. Spend the bucks, get a .45.

Amen

Preach it .

OOOOPS …..I was always getting in trouble for turning around in church to see what goober was yelling Amen from the congregation.

I couldn’t help it. I was being good until some lunatic in a quiet set of church pews started acting like they were possessed.

The system is rigged I tel ya. Your Parents tell you to speak up if something doesn't seem right, then smack you in church for talking.

I thought the Elks lodge was some community organization out in Key West? Didn't realize they had wild booze and fight filled parties?
Sounds like those information booths on the downtown mall are working out real well.

Obvious lesson for rookie cop, just because someone is holding a gun, you do not have the right to shoot on sight. I foresee a multimillion dollar settlement. Officer will be lucky if he does not face charges. Will difinitely go before grand jury. The city needs to do the right thing and let state police take over the investigation to avoid conflict of interest.

At the very least, the shot shooter must have had a clean record and no mental health issues as recent as three years ago or there would not have been a CHP issued.

As to the comment about the Elks Club in the Key West area, that's a different Elks organization. The one downtown is the "Imroved" Elks Club and not the original organization. Their website is broken, but here's a cached verson from google. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search...
