I dont know if the other Florida guys on here heard or know of this happening, but the Polk County Sheriff's office had a LEO fatality earlier this week. He was gunned down at almost point-blank range and his K-9 partner Diogi, was also killed in the line of duty. Thr real kicker of this story, for me at least, was that I personally knew Deputy Matt Williams. My father is a Detective for the Polk County Sheriff's office, and they have been good friends on a professional and personal basis for the passed 10 years. I just wanted to express my sorrows that this happened to a good man he not only protected the community, but also contributed in many ways outside of his duties as a deputy. Don't know if many will care, but it was something that deeply effected me on Tuesday of this previous week and wanted to know if anyone else on here had heard the bad news.<br />
<br />
Here's the guest book for people's thoughts on here, my dad has posted his feelings as well as a number of other officers that I know.<br />

We had one here in Oklahoma about a year ago, but at least they caught the bastard. My condolences to the deputy`s family and co-workers. They have a difficult job out there.

</div>No.... I don't agree with that. I have heard this story also and it was awful how this officer was shot or shall I say executed along with his dog.<br />
<br />
68 times is not enough because now his family is fatherless. If I was there I would have shot him 68 more times.<br />
<br />
My prayers go out to his family.

One thing`s for sure. He won`t get to sue over some frivolous loophole in the law. This saved the taxpayers a lot of money.

Really? Where do you work?<br><br>
Well, the way I look at it, they just sped up the the aready faulty judicial system. He was going to get convicted of multiple homicide, death to a LEO, ect ect. Sit on death row for 15 years and then apeal and apeal apeal and sit on death row for another 10 years.

As far as a trial goes for that man if he stayed alive...(good luck trying) it would have been speedy and he would have gotten death. End of story, i think.
