    This is a crime/people issue.. Not a gun issue. I have dozens of guns….. Not one has ever left the house and shot anyone…. Fix the people issue and. Putting a band-Aid on a amputation is useless also.

    yep, i hope long term gun culture lives on. some people want it gone. they and their fellow comrades would have it so. don’t just depend on the NRA keep them at bay, support those pols that support our right to bear arms. or the Toms will have their way.

    Montclair, no place to be without protection. :(

    Unpopular opinion… Too many guns on the street easily obtainable by individuals intent on using them. Only long term solution is a combination of training and stricter guidelines to be able to obtain such weapons. And destroying the illegal weapons that are not properly registered. Any input is welcome, but the long term gun culture in this country needs to be addressed before to many more mass killings.

    @ Esc Co Leo
    10 homicides this year is scary. If it continues like that, this is 19 per 100 000 individuals per year in Escambia County. The average for the country is 5.3

    Spent 10 years in Escambia county. Am now in Chattanooga Tennessee.
    The same goes on here almost everyday . Gang,drug shootings and no one will talk.
    But at the same time complain about the crime and shootings in their neighborhood.
    Guess it is the nature of the beast.

    You go to God, through faith in Jesus, and make sure your soul is safe in Him. This is where one goes, and hopefully sooner rather than later.

    These that are addicted to drugs and need them, or need help, but will not or cannot get help: Why not lock them up, give them Methadone, teach them a trade, check out their performance and turn them loose, but monitor them for a long time to see if they can and will stay out of trouble. If not, lock them up and try again. If they still will not even try to change…………..just lock them up and hope they decide to change on their own IN JAIL. Quit making others that ARE contributing to their own families and society PAY FOR WHAT THE CRIMINALS KEEP ON DOING. We pay for protection. The way we handle this problem now, is obviously not working. Years ago, I saw the courts treating a young repeat offender like a mascot. NOT CUTE!!! No. Not one bit. All these years later, it still irritates me, when I think about it. UGH ! ! !

    I am wondering, how many homicides were committed this year in Escambia FL? In other words, how many people have been killed this year so far in Escambia County?

    A word to those who think it’s just another hoodlum that has been killed, no big deal. Those who killed him can kill you as well. They have no brakes.

    To Anne:
    It’s not the Sherriff’s Office who is at fault. Sheriff Morgan just said, again, in a press conference last week neither witnesses or surviving gunshot victims absolutely refuse to help investigators. They won’t give any suspect information. In most cases, everyone in the hood knows who the shooters are. However they fear for their own safety and/or will retaliate on their own. It just keeps going back and forth. So how do investigators work these cases with no description of the shooter, vehicle, etc… Almost impossible.

    I saw this mess coming decades ago when we escaped Montclair. I won’t drive near there without my .45 on me anymore.

    Another MURDER because of Gangs and their Drug Dealings in Escambia County.

    Local Authorities and Politicians say “Crime is Down” well explain how that works to the families losing relatives. Explain those numbers and how you got them to the innocent folks whose houses and cars are being randomly shot at.

    Maybe not a Murder a day but there is close to that for a relatively small district.

    Will there come a day when the thugs and drug dealers just finally do each other in and we have more peace on the streets?

    1 less hoodlum to roam around Escambia County. Hoodlum vs Hoodlum, keep it guys

    I remember a time when this was a nice neighborhood, as were many neighborhoods in Pensacola, when the projects were destroyed by the hurricane the county decided to spread the filth all around the county. Way to go Escambia county you have destroyed all the nice little neighborhoods that once were, not a single one left.

    (Edit to my previous comment. ) “No one will cooperate with investigators.”

  16. Gary on February 23rd, 2020 7:12 am

    Another deadly shooting that will go without an arrest. Drug related. Certainly not the fault of the ECSO because none of the surviving victims and witnesses refuse to cooperate with investigators. Where are all of the gun-control activists when all these black-on-black shootings are occurring?
    A prime example of why gun control will never work. These are the criminals shooting each other every day all over the country and the ones who will NEVER turn in their guns much less abide by any gun laws.

    wow, used to be a nice neighborhood, many years ago. 2 or 3 storage facilities up the road from there, wouldn’t keep a bicycle in one of them anymore. Pensacola is starting to look like a junior version of Mobile or New Orleans. where do you go though? :(
