    The SRT Team is a highly trained unit. Eveything they decide to do or NOT to do has tactical reasoning and planning behind it, and you can not voice an opinion on procedure if you don't know what that particular departments policy and procedures are. Have faith in our aw Enforcement, they are trained proffesionals who put there lives on the line for us every day, they do it because they love the job and the people they serve. God bless both families involved in this unfortunate event.

    The Sheriff was killed for no reason. The person had no hostage, and was armed. Why not gas the house, or the room??? If I were the sheriffs family, or the other victims family...I would sue for lack of following proper procedures. The Baker;s Act is a joke and how a patient can walk out of a hospital twice is unbelieveable. MSgt Ellam, USAF
