Florida Reporter Asks Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd About Helping Gang Members – Gets Destroyed
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd is known for straight talk regarding criminals. During a recent press conference referencing a gang shooting and the arrest of the murderer, A reporter asked Judd a question and soon regretted it.
A reporter asks Grady, “It strikes me that the victim has a mother that cared about him, didn’t want him in that life anymore. We have this 19-year-old who’s young….how does the gang task force try to get young people, young kids, not to go into this life.”
Grady responds, “Listen, that’s a bunch of hooey…that soft and cuddly feeling, ‘we’re gonna hug a thug, and if we give them another popsicle and an icy and a day out at the park, they’re gonna be good….”
“Y’all need to wake up. These dudes are taking y’all for fools. These are hardcore gangsters, gang bangers. They’ll eat your ice cream on Saturday and shoot up their rivals on Saturday night…and smile at you in the meantime.”
“So. at the end of the day, it all starts with parenting at home when they’re young and keeping them away from this lifestyle. But when we’re having these ‘neighborhood events’ for these 15, 16, 17-year-old hardcore gang bangers…they’re smiling at you in the daytime and going up and dressing like this at night (the Sheriff shows a teen in gang banger garb.).”
During the press conference on the arrest of an alleged murderer La’Darion Chandler for shooting 33-year-old John McGee, Judd had much to say about the case. McGee was shot in the back in December of 2022 and was expected to recover, but McGee died on Jan. 9.
According to Judd, La’Darion Chandler shot 33-year-old John McGee in the back on Dec. 17 after the two argued in the street. He added that McGee goes by “Bang Bang” on the street and is a known gang member.
“He’s a troublemaker, make no mistake about it, but he shouldn’t have died,” Judd stated. “But on December 17, two months after he was released from prison, he was shot in the back.”
Judd says McGee was transported to the hospital after the shooting and was expected to recover. Twenty-four days later, he died because he refused to take the medication doctors told him he needed to heal. While recovering in the hospital, Judd says deputies tried to talk to him about the shooting, but he wouldn’t cooperate.
“He was going to get well and go back and seek revenge on his own against this other opposing gang member,” Judd shared. “What we believe is he wanted to take care of it himself. He didn’t want that gang member locked up because if he was locked up, he couldn’t get to him.”

As the investigation into the murder continued, deputies learned Chandler had made a rap video about shooting McGee.
“He’s not much of a rapper. My rapper expert says he doesn’t sing well. He doesn’t move well. He’s just a terrible rapper. But he’s a stupid rapper. He not only makes a rap video about shooting somebody, but he also admits to shooting the guy in the back. I’m a coward rapper; that’s what I am. Watch me shoot the guy in the back,” Judd stated.
“When we laid that first-degree murder warrant on him, subsequent to that, he started crying like a baby that lost his pacifier, and ostensibly his gun was his pacifier. He bragged that he carried a gun all the time, and he would shoot it at his rivals,” Judd said.
“This kind of person, I’m not talking about everybody; this kind of person is paying no attention.”
