  1. Thank you for keeping SCV safe LEOs!!! Our community ranks 7th because of your hard work. It’s not an easy job and you are appreciated🇺🇸🙏🏼 Stay safe

  2. There were at least 12 police cars when I drove by, I thought there was an active shooter or something. Not sure if all of that was necessary for one person though, but hope you police stay safe.

  3. Jack you are an idiot!! If you or a family member were involved in a fight with a suspect would you not want as many people as necessary to respond or mehhhh just a few. I’m sure the skateboarder is a scholar weaker citizen from our local wash who is just a poor victim. Great job to our sheriff’s dept and glad the deputies are ok. Keep up the great work.

  4. I hope the deputies take the little bastard in the back of the jail cell in kick the s*** out of him. Lord knows our liberal justice system can’t do the job

  5. Vote liberal. This guy is a victim and has every right to vandalize and resist arrest. Yeah thats the ticket. Vote liberal.

  6. Thank God LE is keeping rampant crime down all around beautiful SCV, so LE was able to swarm a situation that nowadays (in other areas) riots of resistant, commie lawbreakers can stir up trouble as so many cretins have their cell phones stuck to their faces ready to network other idiots ready to cause riots quickly! Thanks LE, even though it was a relatively minor problem! That’s one of the reasons SCV is so safe!
