    The way he was breaking out was akin to using a toy bucket for beach nourishment; if you've got 20 years to kill it'll work eventually.

    Some new info coming out about what all happened that early AM.

    Hearing that staffing on the road was light (maybe only three on-duty officers?). There were two vehicle chases, but the confusion started after the first and as the second was starting to unfold.

    Stringer DID NOT get in the second car. He stayed behind and was allegedly in Inlet Beach the whole time the SO was setting up and chasing "someone" in the 283 / 395 area.

    Need more officers in the south end at night.

    At least once every six years according to the trend.

    Three? South end alone? Wow that's an increase from the days when ShallowsFuzz had everything south of Rock Hill on the midnight shift by himself!

    So is it OK for there to only be three patrol deputies in SoWal at night? Sounds really thin. Where are all the other staff? FHP works most of the wrecks (like the one yesterday in Freeport where a County Ambulance rearended a car...).

    I guess I'd expect more staff on the road.

    There are reasons for FHP working those wrecks and not WCSO as I understand it.

    Can you share? Do you know if ambulance was occupied?

    I do not know if they had a patient or not. I think having FHP a state agency vs a Local department takes the possibility of bias out of it.

    FHP normally works state maintained roads/hwy's unless it's someone like the principal of an Academy, then its a cluster fluck...to screw up a crime scene....and not hold a drunk accountable for his actions.

    You are very correct. Did you know that there was also a gun found in the car?

    I remember a FHP trooper mentioning that.

    And back to whether three officers in South Walton is enough - historically that's an increase but I'd venture to say we should probably have four, especially when one of our officers has to leave their zone down here to book someone in at the county jail.
    The rest of the staff are in the rest of the county, where coverage can be a bit thin, especially if one needs a cup of coffee, a cold drink or a dignified nature call.
