    A Story to Warm Ones Heart

    Autopsy: 110 Rounds Shot At Florida Suspect

    (AP) LAKELAND, Fla. Officers fired 110 rounds of ammunition at the man suspected of killing a sheriff's deputy, according to an autopsy and records released by the sheriff's office Saturday.

    Angilo Freeland — who was suspected of fatally shooting the deputy after being pulled over for speeding Thursday — was hit 68 times by the SWAT team members' shots, the examination showed.

    He also was suspected of wounding a deputy and killing a police dog.

    Freeland's death ended a nearly 24-hour manhunt that forced schools to lock down and families to stay indoors as about 500 officers scoured the woods.

    The wounded deputy had pulled Freeland over for speeding and became suspicious of his identification. The suspect got nervous and bolted into the woods, officials said.

    Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he was not concerned by the number of shots fired.

    "You have to understand, he had already shot and killed a deputy, he had already shot and killed a K-9 and he shot and injured another deputy," Judd said by phone Saturday. "Quite frankly, we weren't taking any chances."

    Ten SWAT officers surrounded Freeland on Friday as he hid beneath brush and a fallen tree in a rural area. Authorities say he raised the gun belonging to the deputy he had killed, prompting nine officers to fire.

    "I suspect the only reason 110 rounds was all that was fired was that's all the ammunition they had," Judd said. "We were not going to take any chance of him shooting back."

    The SWAT officers who shot Freeland have been placed on paid administrative leave, standard procedure in all police shootings.

    Also released Saturday were autopsy results for the deputy, Vernon Matthew Williams, 39, which showed he had been shot eight times. He was not wearing a protective vest, but shots hit him in his right leg and behind his right ear, among other places.

    Diogi, his German shepherd police dog, was also killed. The dog had been shot once in the chest.

    Authorities said deputy sheriff Doug Speirs, also 39, was fired at several times and shot once in the leg. A sergeant and an officer from the Lakeland Police Department were also fired at, authorities said.

    Bravo to all of those involved. I can't wait to see the liberal bleeding heart liberal pinko commies screaming excessive force. Screw it he got what he deserved. Next time maybe some asshat in Floridia will think twice about even pointing a gun at a police officer. Remember, when in doubt empty it out.

    I think its great, and sends the right message. But you right some liberal lawyer will prompt the family of the scumb bag to file a lawsuit over excessive force or some other B.S.
    When he does I think the family of the officer should also file one against his family for the same thing....shooting the deputy 8 times!!

    Let's give a thumbs up to the SWAT Officers for saving the state of Florida alot of money by "trying and convicting" him in the woods.

    I am glad they got that SOB.

    Hmmm.... 68/110 = 61.8% not a passing score. Prop his dead ass up and keep shooting at him until everyone gets at least 85%.

    I am 100 percent glad this scrotum is dead. Kudos to the job well done. But, comments such as above should not be made in a public forum. If you don't think a lawyer could stumble upon this and use it to their advantage you are mistaken. These words will be taken out of context big time by those with an interest in the "other" side.

    May the Deputy and K9 rest in peace now.
    As a side note, I was on the field in St. Paul, MN. when this happened. I was judging a national K9 trial. The news came from some Lakeland handlers and a friend of the deceased officer was on the field also judging. Was pretty sad all around.

    They may not have passed the qualification, but they damn sure passed the test!
    Statistically, they are well above average for an active shoot. I do like your idea about the remedial practice.

    In other words - he was executed.

    That's great that the sheriff was there for the officers and defended their actions. I know a couple of sheriffs like that in my area.

    I'm so glad they took no chances with the criminal. Good job.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
