    Idiot Updates Facebook Status During Standoff

    Link

    The Ogden, Utah, Police Department says an armed man posted Facebook status updates from his phone while engaged in a 16-hour standoff with them over the weekend.
    Jason Valdez, 36, issued six status updates, added 15 friends and responded to numerous comments posted by worried family and friends while police were engaged in a siege at an Ogden motel Saturday morning. Police say the person in the standoff and the person making those updates was Valdez.
    "I'm currently in a stand off wit these shady [expletive] from old, kinda ugly but ready for whatever, I love u guyz and if I don't make it out of here alive that I'm in a better place and u were all great friends," Valdez posted at 1:23 a.m. via an Android phone.
    The incident started when police officers attempted to serve a felony warrant for failure to appear in court on a drug-related charge and Valdez barricaded himself in the motel room, Ogden police Lt. Danielle Croyle said.
    Police said a woman was with Valdez in the motel room; police characterized her as a hostage but Valdez implied she was a willing companion. At 4:04 a.m., Valdez uploaded photos of himself and a woman with the caption, "Got a cute "HOSTAGE", huh?"
    Various relatives and friends urged him throughout the morning to be careful, "keep yr head up," "do the right thing" and "end this peacefully." Some even tipped him off about police movements outside the motel.
    Police were keeping an eye on Valdez's online accounts, and those helpful friends could face obstruction charges, Croyle said. It's becoming more common for criminals to use social media even in the midst of dangerous situations, she said.
    "It can be detrimental to the operation in that we are trying to have his attention in dealing with the situation and dealing with tactics," Croyle said. "Our ultimate goal is for a peaceful resolution."
    At 5:26 a.m., Valdez thanked those who were supporting him: "Much love to u krazy fools too and I told u I was dumping on these [expletive] lol show u how them NORTENOS do it"
    Here's his Facebook page, gotta love all the comments on their...

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    He can't be a very good shot if he had to go for centre mass at point blank range, should have shot himself in the head.

    Ha, true that lol. Apparently he wasn't even able to get the job done there either, he's expected to survive.
