Mark E. NeJame ACTUAL PRESS RELEASE SENT TO MEDIA: On April 27th four young men were in the Target store located in Kissimmee, Florida. Two of them were teenage boys who entered the store and were suspected of shoplifting Pokemon Cards and a pizza, with the combined value of approximately less than $40.
Information indicates that Osceola County sheriff deputies physically followed the teenagers inside the store and allowed and watched the juveniles exit the store. Under the watchful eye of Sheriff deputies, the boys entered their car without being stopped or detained, even though probable cause would have existed to stop and detain them if the deputies were witness to an alleged petit theft.

By Mike Scott In 2009, I started mentoring a young man who was headed down the wrong path. Unfortunately, I didn't come in his life soon enough. When I met him at 13 years old, he had already been arrested 9 times. Just a few years later he would be DIRECT FILED (kids sent to ADULT JAILS).
Direct File occurs when a state has given the prosecutor power to file charges against a juvenile directly in adult criminal court. I've mentored kids as young as 13 years old who were sent to ADULT PRISON for NON VIOLENT CRIMES and are still incarcerated as I write this. But let me get back to my main reason for this post.
Florida Rep. Bruce Antone, Lawanna Gelzer and others announce the formation of a Community task force on police use-of-force and accountability to residents. Rep. Antone opening comments focused on continuing his failure to represent the community and how he and Lawanna Gelzer will maintain the status quo.
Candidates in the Orange County Sheriff's race is fighting a zebra. Here are some of my observations.
John Mina John Mina had been a life long Republican when he was appointed to be Orlando's Chief of Police. When he decided that he wanted to be Orange County Sheriff, he thought that becoming a Democrat would be a better cover. So he burned his Republican team colors and bought a loosely fitting Democrat jersey.
When I am speeding 34mph in a 30mph no passing zone and someone is riding by bumper honking their horn and waving the finger at me, I will generally slow down to about 25mph, just to get them a little more pissed off. Who the hell are they, that I should alter my agenda for them?
