Posted on 06/12/2018 12:36:25 AM PDT by freedumb2003
Orlando police officers who responded to a domestic dispute Monday were met with gunfire, which seriously wounded an officer and launched a standoff with the gunman, who then barricaded himself in an apartment with four young children.
Shortly before midnight, Orlando police and Orange County deputies announced that the suspect and the children had died.
The suspect accused of shooting an Orlando police officer in the face and holding four children hostage for nearly 24 hours killed the children and then killed himself, police said.
Orlando Police Chief John Mina said they lost communication with Gary Lindsey about 8:30 p.m., but were still trying to end the situation peacefully.
They said Lindseys phone had a poor connection, so negotiators tried to get him another phone.
Once they did, SWAT team members were able to see that one of the children was dead.
Mina said the children were shot.
"Our hearts go out to the family of those four children. A long day like this is physically and emotionally draining," Mina said.
The officer who was shot, Kevin Valencia, remains in critical condition but is expected to survive, Mina said.
The identities of the children have not been released.
Four children are dead following a hostage situation and a standoff with a suspect accused of shooting an Orlando police officer in the face.
The suspect, Gary Lindsey, is also dead, police and sheriff's office sources told Channel 9.
There is a heck of a lot more at the base site.
I think even Satan does not dance at this as He wants people to turn to Him by choice.
This is the collateral damage of all of society turning away from God.
I feel my strength ebbing replaced by pure anger. Maybe God will talk to me tonight. Please pray for the innocents lost and the strength we all need.
He looks like Radar. I never would have thought it of Radar.
A number of things that suck about this creep.... multiple arrests, different women getting involved with him, multiple pending cases, slow courts in Florida, how could he get over night visitation?
Leave the kids out of it. Man does that piss me off. What a POS.!
You have to remember- this is Satan’s realm... for now... He rules this world (within limits of course). Things are GOING TO GET WORSE AND WORSE WHEN WE BEGIN HEADING INTO THE END TIMES- (srry cps lock)- and when the Restrainer is finally removed- things will be so bad that demons will roam in full view of people and noone will think anything of it-The revived Babylon is going to be one heck of a frightful place with all it’s evil.
It’s good of course to hate the evil- but we must realize that God is going to allow it to get much much worse- until Christ comes back again. In the meantime- We need to turn to God and trust Him through the evil that Satan wreaks on this planet- (Think about how evil it was during the times of Rome- Christians were boiled alive, roasted over fires- used as human torches to light the arenas- fed to lions and bears- skewered alive- just all manner of incredibly evil things were done to them, and to the Jews-
Not much comfort I know- but this is Satan’s realm for now- Look forward to the return of Christ-
There’s a special place in Hell for these types.
The events in Singapore must have pushed this incident off the news cycle already. This is the first I’ve heard about it. My sympathies for the families and friends of the children. Nothing could be worse for a parent.
I don’t know the story behind the tragedy.
Did he know the children or their families?
Was in all random?
I was just mentioning this behavior by suicidal and distraught men earlier, on a suicide-related thread:
The father was probley a pedophile and murdered his children to cover his crimes. Happens more often then you might think.
Satan never dances. Satan does not have even an evil laugh for there is NO joy, NO laughter, only hate, disgust, pain, anger, jealousy, and absolutely no music or singing.
He wants to destroy all humans or torture them for eternity.
Did those children know about Jesus, the Son of God, the Son of man?
Funny how filthy pigs like this always seem to have three names.
>>Did those children know about Jesus, the Son of God, the Son of man?<<
My FRiend that is where our prayers are most fervent.
frankly, I am unable to sleep given the ghastly deeds in the very story I posted.
Satan need not lurk — He just must nudge.
I *MUST* assume God and Jesus accompanied these children with gentle kindness. And Satan took the killers forever.
Else my soul is lost.
Those children are at the right hand of OUR FATHER...Prayers to their families. The moron is meeting with SATAN now...
The middle name “Wayne” sure seems to be a common thing
Exactly what went through my mind when I saw his mugshot. Mentally ill homo (but I repeat myself) that probably diddled his own kids.
You do know that there are 350 million people in the country right? And many of them are good people. Stop the hand-wringing and take a pill
People, we have no photos or identity data of the victims, no photos or identity data of any of the mothers/women/wives who are apparently in some way involved with the killer. We don’t even know if race is involved. Other men involved? What kind of lives have the mothers of the victims been leading? We only know the killer was a white male. His is the only photo released to the public. The media has been VERY careful about limiting the information it is giving out, to strictly the criminal history of the murderer. So has local law enforcement. There are large info gaps all over the place on this. There’s more to this—much more—than meets the eye. This is not the way the media typically reports a multiple-victim murder. Why an info blackout if the murderer is already deceased? There should be no investigation or evidence to protect. Or is there?
4 families involved: The shooter, the critically wounded cop, shooters girlfriend and her 2 children, age 10 and 11, and someone else’s children ages 1 and 6. Lots of notifications going on today. Sad.
