    Of course the only reason this is news is that it was *near* Disney's property. I don't mean to belittle our gallent law enforcement officers, but this kind of stuff happens to them all the time. It becomes "news" (and I use the term loosly) because it happens to be near Disney. :rolleyes1

    Sometimes I dispair of our information sources.

    M-kay, the other side of I-4 qualifies this as a Disney connection. How about up the street from SeaWorld? Or close to the Orange County Convention Center. More reason to stay on property, ehh? ;)

    OK, they caught these guys, and they have a record, each one of them, for a total of 80 arrests. They all have extensive criminal records, yet they are all out on the street. What sort of a comment would you have about that?.......just curious:confused3

    So because police officers get shot at "all the time" that makes it ok and only newsworthy because the Disney name is involved? Sorry Sara, you make me a little upset with a comment like that.

    FYI My comment,if read correctly, is concerning Med flighting someone without life threatening injuries. Either their injuries were more threatening then reported or someone is killing a fly with a shotgun. To send Med FLight is not an easy thing and comes with its own dangers.

    I was there. I was taking my girls to WDW one last time before our summer blackout dates begin on our Season passes. (We have VBS this week, so it was last week or wait until August.) Anyway, we get off the 417 on the DTD exit. There was a policeman there blocking the road. Now, I'm not terribly familiar with the area, but I think if I make this big loop I'll be back on 536 (or is it 535?) Anyway, there were sheriffs cars and city police cars about every 40 yards or so. They had their rifles out and steadied on top of their cruisers. Traffic was totally shut down. They even closed that part of I-4. It was madness. There were a lot of people trying to get to WDW and their resorts and they know the area even less than I do, so lots of people just stopped and/or trying to make U-turns on the few roads that were open. With traffic going nowhere, I can totally understand why they would airlift a person (even without life threatening injuries). Also, it may be possible that the injuries would have become worse had that person had to sit in that traffic.

    I think the point is that because they could say "Disney" in the story.. it will get more attention than it might otherwise. And THAT is a sad commentary on society.

    Unfortunately, gun crime in Orlando as a whole is on the rise this year and last year.

    No I would not want other people put in harms way to be med flighted with NON LIFE threatening injuries. Part of the traffic jam may have been in result of medflight. All traffic has to be stopped in order for them to land. My point, which seem hard to understand, is I am guessing their injuries were worse then reported.

    You are right - one time I was visiting a friend in the Waterford Lakes area and she lives in a small development (about 50 or so homes) that has only 1 entrance, which is off of Dean Rd. There was an accident where at least 1 person had to be airlifted. They stopped all traffic to let the helicopter land, load and lift off again. We happened to be sitting at the entrance/exit of her development, trying to go to dinner, when we were stopped.

    Part of the traffic snarl would have to do with the aircraft, and more b/c of the police presence to catch these guys. The drawback is the fact that it is in a tourist area, and many people wouldn't know where else to go to get around it (I wouldn't either w/o my map of Orlando).

    Unfortunately, crime is up EVERYWHERE. When I told my mom a few weeks ago what the murder rate was here last year she said, "That's all?" Apparently it's bad back home in Philly (as some of you may have seen on last night's CBS Evening News...).
