Hey Anonymous the closest SWAt Team is in Salem or Corvalis and they were called right away! Obviously you do not know anything because if you knew this neighborhood you would understand how easy it is to disapeare

The SWAT Team from Portland just went thru my Property! They were very polite and thorough! They are once again searching every home here and it is appreciated! I pray for there safety and that they find him and put this to an end!

I am hoping that the families in the community that I love so much remain safe while this obviously disturbed person is on the loose. Stay strong former colleagues, it's time to put all in.... LCSO and PDs - the community is behind you.

If your not from here then please stop talking, you have absolutely no idea what your talking about. Your comments are idiotic and unnecessary. You are uninformed and making conclusions that are, for lack of a better word, incorrect.

They are doing the very best they can. Who knows how many lives they may have already saved by stopping him when and where they did.

If you want a faster police presence, then you might want to remember this episode the next time you vote no on a law enforcement tax levy.

If your not from the Waldport, or any of the other coast cities involved, then you don't understand the nature of our area. Resources here are very limited. We have Deputies and in the few cities that have officers, they are great as well.

Just so everyone has a clear view of our little town... We do NOT have our own police dept. here, we are VERY small. Considering what these guys were up against they are doing the best they can. We are 2 hours from Corvallis, 2 and a half from Salem.

If, as they say, his dog is with him, he shouldn't be too hard to find. The dog will slow him down considerably.

S.W.A.T was called in as soon as they needed to be, newport and waldport are very small towns they dont have S.W.A.T there so it takes a bit for them to get to newport. I feel that our men in newport are doing a well job

w153r. Neither do I and I encourage them to keep the fingers on the triggers and also to remember "Center Mass" for targeting the bullets! Scum like this, we really don't need in society.

Since you guys OBVIOUSLY know what you're doing and can make the world a safer place while looking dead sexy doing it. Oh please teach us your ways, great gifts from the Gods.

ONP says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 4:17 PM

Dangit, they won't post my last vulgar apparently. Basically it said, hey you armchair generals and dirty hippies, please, enlighten us with your master plans to catch dirtbags while saving kittens and drinking soda without spilling.

Clearly from the comments none of you know any details and should keep your mouth shut unless you are directly involved and know what you are talking about!

Cop Wife says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 4:04 PM

and tries to decide how things should be done. Obviously, you are not an officer, so go back to your basement.

Cop Wife says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 4:03 PM

The SWAT team was called out immediately. Unfortunately, they are at least 2 hours away. They were on scene as soon as possible. Wake up! In rural Oregon, this is standard. We are struggling to keep officers on the street, and then someone come in

Cop Wife says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 3:59 PM

These officers are in rural Oregon where funds and resources are limited. Take into account that the Sheriff's Office has 4 officers on duty at a time (standard). Lincoln City has 4, OSP has 2, Newport has 4. Less if anyone is out on vacation or sick

Cop Wife says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 3:57 PM

To Anonymous and all the other elitist Portland idiots. 1) there are no choppers in the area because the shooter has a rifle. Makes the chopper a great target. 2) spike strips stopped him from driving into downtown Waldport and shooting more people.

Local says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 3:45 PM

You know, the police departments in this area, are not exactly accustomed to handling a situation such as this. And, considering the suspect drove from one end of Lincoln County to the other, I believe they did what they could in liu of very few men

The closet chopper is in Portland 1 Hr away you must not know where Waldport is

KathleenO says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 1:56 PM

Our men in blue should consider wearing vests, and every citizen should Google "Flex Your Rights" and watch the video for safety procedures to follow during a traffic stop. Our thoughts and prayers for the injured officer and his family.

Anonymous says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 1:51 PM

One more for the record: Why wasn't S.W.A.T brought in immediately? Who is running this Fiasco? I could do a much better job with my own guidelines to go by... freakin amateurs!

oregoner says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 1:32 PM

How did he get away in the first place? Did the genius cop think the spike strip was going to stop him?

Anonymous says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 1:10 PM

They should have had the chopper in the air immediately along with the proper heat sensing equipment.... This search has gone on too long with no results yet! The longer it takes the greater the chance this nut might get away to hurt someone else.

w153r says ... on Monday, Jan 24 at 12:56 PM

I have a feeling this guy will be shot on sight, and I don't have a problem with that.
