Amazing you won't post any comment that critical of this whole scenario. My husband posted comment of reality and truth of how no notification on the TV like they would for a thunderstorm with emergency signal and the ticker with info but when you have a so called armed and dangerous man you get a little stupid story if by chance you are watching the evening news. What about those who were not watching or the deaf isn't it important to have the ticker run at the bottom the their screens for possible impending danger? If they believe they have the weapon used but still think he is armed a possibly holding up at someone's house where is the door to door search. Where are the cops at the very close local Casino? Why is this not reported?
