  • This POS probably has a lame excuse for their actions. Disgusting. Another life extinguished because someone doesnt have any morals.

    • I see. They posted the graphic and the tag number on X at GainesvillePD.

      Maybe this is why they can’t track down the owner. 😆

  • Now that Butler is connected better to SWAG corridor, expect these tragedies of “inclusion” to happen more often.

  • There is so much surveillance/cameras in that area AND police have the tag number. So still can’t figure who this was??

    Ya’ll need to tell the public what GPD and ACSO has released so far about this, if anything.
    I know they got something…..
    I hear our boys in blue & the deputies in green calling in tag numbers, automobile, driver and occupant descriptions all the time on a police scanner.
    tell us what you know please .
