FWC Officer Involved Shooting

As someone who frequently complains about excessive safety/fish checks by the FWC I think all of us who fish/boat in this area should take a moment to realize that the FWC officers and all of the other Law Enforcement in this area and in this country put their lives on the line every day. The officer that got shot last Friday had no way of knowing or even thinking that requesting to see someone's boat registration would result in his getting shot multiple times and dodging getting run over by his boat and cut up by the prop. I am taking this opportunity to thank the FWC officers and other Law Enforcement officer for what they do every day. I'm thankful that the officer was treated and released and also glad that our Sheriff went on television and called the perps what they are "SCUMBAG COWARDS".
