Another MURDER by firefighter

I have photos of them less than four inches from a CHILD'S FACE. Pulling IN to the station not off on one of their heroic, life-saving runs to protect us EVERY DAY with their lives on the line.


When did it finally occur to them that they could just take the rest of us OUT by RUNNING OVER US OR PLOWING INTO US AS WE DRIVE DOWN THE STREET???? What did Chris KNOW???

Did you know that Michael Keller is running a halfway house for fucking murderers and WHORES???? Under the full protection of the Tampa Police Dept.

BROOKSVILLE — A 26-year-old man died Sunday night in a head-on crash with a fire truck on Centralia Road.
About 9 p.m., Christopher Carl Smith of Brooksville was driving a Ford pickup east on Centralia Road while a fire truck driven by Brian Norrie, also of Brooksville, was heading west. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Smith's truck veered into the westbound lanes and collided with the left front of the fire truck.
Smith was pronounced dead at the scene by Hernando County Fire Rescue. Norrie and his passenger, John Miller, were taken to Oak Hill Hospital with minor injuries, troopers said.
The fire truck was headed to the scene of a nonemergency battery call to provide assistance for the Sheriff's Office. Frank DeFrancesco, assistant chief for Hernando County Fire Rescue, said the truck will have to be replaced.
"Our guys were really lucky," DeFrancesco said Monday.
Highway Patrol spokesman Larry Kraus said no charges will be filed since Smith, the at-fault driver, was killed in the crash. Troopers are still investigating the collision.
The Medical Examiner's Office will determine if alcohol was involved.

I have to say that it is disheartening the read the rhetoric regarding this accident, a young man, and father lost his life for reasons none of us know because we were not there. However, I was there seconds after the accident just as the Firefighters were getting out of their truck because I live right next to the scene. I checked on the driver of the pickup truck and his dogs, which was something that no one should have to bear. All of you should be feeling sadness for the family of the deceased and Firemen involved and quit the bitterness of personal opinion. This county now has a young, fatherless family and two Firemen that will live with the memory of that night forever. Our focus as fellow human beings should be with condolences directed to the Smith family at this time instead of the hate spewing that has been exhibited.

(Cont.)such idiotic comments about this tragedy. I hope to see you as the next individual applying for unemployment and would love to write a story on you if such a tragedy were to ever occur. But, I am human and “may” find it difficult in doing so, even for you. For the record, Chris was in a full size F150 (I believe the year is a (1994-1996). His truck was not lowered to the ground, it is just a lot lower than a fire truck (imagine that). This is the last F150 body style that is actually a solid truck. This accident is still under investigation. Meanwhile whatever comes of it let’s look at the facts; a man’s life has been lost. Fighting and blaming people is not going to give us Chris back. His family is trying to cope with this a best as they can and they do not need a bunch of unsympathetic and cruel remarks thrown around. To the firefighters wife’s posting on here, they’re fine. Quit making this about them. It’s not, they’re still with us.

I am very close to Chris’ family and know that they have seen the replies and I think that everyone is being insensitive to their feelings here.

But the lives of those firefighters will also be impacted for ever. Those that think different are way off based.

If the fire truck was headed to a scene to assist the Sheriffs office, the party responsible for creating the police call is indirectly responsible for the death. When 911 is called, emergency workers are at risk just driving to the scene, much more so with red lights and siren. Whoever the cop was dealing with should get ten years. Case closed, next case please.

FFWife, Sugarme is a troll, formally known as windowsugar, who bashes our BRAVE civil servants. However, much as I hate to admit this, she is correct, it was an 18 year old ambulance driver (nothing ever reported he was an EMT) who killed the grandfather. Papers reported he was fine, then he died a few days later. (Possibly papers reported wrong, or as we all know, other health issues could have arisen that went undiagnosed). Anyway, a BIG THANK YOU to all the sacrifices (pardon MY spelling) your family has made, and I pray all involved heal quickly emotionally and physically. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!

This truck from last night sat up higher than most that is why the person died, his truck was lower to the ground too. He died instantly. An 18 year-old paramedic? Umm, maybe a Band-aid EMT in a ambulance service truck but not a paramedic. Your time would be better spent perhaps going to an English class or two rather than coming here spouting off about something you know nothing about.

Okay, tell me if this sounds mercenary. I'm leaving out names and identities for now, and even some words to protect those who frankly don't deserve protection but having never been a RAT (like some) I just don't feel good about spilling people's filthy sides of their lives onto the WWW...

However -- (you knew this was coming, right??) -- I'm willing to disclose same for a fee. In fact, I'm going to disclose some of this in a book which will definitely be for sale very soon but if you'd like to know if your name or some similar aspect that identifies your smarmy and illegal acts towards me and my family have been mentioned I'd be happy to negotiate a fee with you. For the record, save your pennies if I've known you longer than thirty years. Out of respect for you and your family I'll leave your names out. Out of respect for you and your family I have remained silent. Apparently this same respect was not inbred in you. That's a pity but you and yours are safe with me. The ones who took it upon themselves to do your bidding against an innocent family are wide open just like they've left MY family wide open. Herewith I refer to my extended family and network many of whom are currently suffering at your hands. Be on notice.

About Me

I was born a citizen of the world and have remained such but along with that: I'm a long time Tampa resident. Mixed bag at that as I've seen life here from nearly all angles and while somewhere in there I became slightly indoctrinated, I'm not too proud of the way people have taken over this city and run it with an iron fist for all but some. This city is working hard on creating just two classes. Thems and them dont's and they are working hard to shove some families down into the gutter for reasons known only to them. Some might be as petty as jealousy, some might be politically motivated, some might just be stupid and all are wrong. I want to believe we can get better but that would entail some stuff that I have no control over. I only can control myself and my reactions to what occurs.
