    I just read in the news that Officer Kocab grew up very near where I live. So sad. Prayers for both officer's families and loved ones. Senseless. I hope they catch this creep soon.

    ... and she has been released!

    That is surprising.

    http://www.baynews9.com/article/new...lice-chief-Castor-says-We-will-track-him-down

    "I wouldn't describe her as cooperative but we were able to get some information out of her," Castor said.

    She said that the investigation is currently focused on finding Morris, but that she understands why the public is upset about Brantley's release.

    "I understand that level of frustration," she said. "But the community needs to trust in the ability of the Tampa Police Department."

    The chief has confirmed Brantley was the driver and Morris was a passenger.

    I can't tell you how stunned Tampa and the surrounding communities are. The outpouring of sadness, shock and anger is unbelievable. I was listening to the radio this morning besides watching TV and people are calling in begging if you see this man shoot him dead. It really is shocking. The Police Chief keeps saying if you are out there for your OWN SAFETY turn yourself in.

    I have been following this story and can't figure out what in the world in wrong with people. I like to read the viewers comments also, sometimes you can get more info there that the news site hasn't put out yet. In one earlier today a poster commented that the guy shot these officers in the head and when the driver (the woman) fled she ran one of them over. This poster was so mad cause they let her out.

    I'm mad, too. She left them in the street! Why didn't she signal to the 1st officer that he had a gun??? It is ALL WRONG.

    It's ridiculous that she was let go. The only thing I can think of is she had no idea that Morris had a gun and was planning on shooting the officers. She may only have a slight connection to the suspect. Who knows? The news reports say she was not very cooperative. No surprise there. Morris probably has a whole network of people who are helping him right now to evade capture. They should all be rounded up when this is over and prosecuted to the fullest extent.

    When the police finally catch up to him, they should be ready to open fire if he makes the slightest suspicious move. If he had the slightest idea what's good for him, he would be heading to the nearest police station with a minister and some reporters, with his hands held high.
