Folks, here’s a pro tip: Don’t “confront” people over the small stuff. Daw is listed as a transient on the booking sheet and he has numerous arrests going back to 2007 for a wide array of charges, including battery, trespassing, urinating in public, etc. I’ve dealt with plenty of transients as an Orlando police officer. Some of them want to be arrested, especially in the winter so they have a warm place to sleep. I’ve been kicked, shoved, and spit on. If they’re going to do this to a police officer, what do you think they’re going to do to you?
You also have to factor in the possibility of mental health. Now that the liberals have closed the majority of the asylums in the country, where do you think mental health patients are now? They’re out on the streets, in your neighborhood. Regardless of how calm people are to begin with, I’ve had suspects turn on me quickly, and the fight was on. When dealing with strangers and petty stuff, take my advice and just don’t.
