This is a special message for Skidmore and the other officers involved. As disappointed as you may be that this Judge failed "US". Know this... that my family is just as disappointed as you are. YOU did your jobs!

The greatest gift in wasn't your lifeless bodies laying at the bottom of those steps! And there is a good probability your presence and justified actions, YOU may have "SAVED" another life that night or prevented another crime from happening!!

Damarion Wise is a scumbag. Scumbags like him are a dime a dozen and you will GET HIM OFF the streets eventually. I will pray that in the meantime...since this Judge has now empowered him and Wise's ego must be flying on this. Wise will screw up...I will pray that YOU can get him before he does take an innocent life!!

Judge washam seems to have lost his mind. Certainly will not vote for him again, he appears to be on the side of the criminal.

I do not agree that Washam did his job. He has made several off the wall decisions over the past 6 months.

I don't think you would disagree if you got pat down without probable cause. The law is set up in a certain way for a reason. You want the police to be able to search whomever they want with no reason?

Criminal that he may be.. procedures are procedure. If you will give up the process for one you may as well give it up for all.

sunshine72, the officers had probable cause and Washam blew it!

"You want the police to be able to search whomever they want with no reason?"

You actually believe these officers HAD NO REASON? Are you serious?

Tell you what we will do. The next time at 3 in the morning when our cops get another one of these calls they can run over to your home and drag your butt out of your comfy little bed and take you with them. They will wait in the police car, while YOU get out and walk up to that POS with a criminal track record longer than your arm and YOU DEAL WITH IT.

helloall...thank you, now if only Judge dumb dumb would understand it!

Terry Vs. Ohio

Nothing gets my blood boiling faster than a Judge that ENDANGERS OFFICER SAFETY.

Not only did Washam ignore that...the door he opened up with these scumbags will now make these cops lives even more difficult in dealing with those "untouchable" egos. Washam is an IDIOT.

Or how about this watchdog. The next time someone witnesses a crime, we'll have them describe YOU to the police. Then when YOU are getting searched based on one statement,no evidence, YOU can tell us all how you enjoyed the process.

We only know AFTER the fact that he was guilty of anything. You can't now go back and say oh well, it doesn't matter how it was found because it was found. Not how the law was set up.

Watchdog: You are right on! Sunshine72 always has an extreme liberal viewpoint.

May-26-13 12:35 PM me! A law abiding citizen FEARS no pat down!

Do you know what a pat down does? Are you this stupid? That pat down protects you just as much as it protects that officer.

Let me advise you of something. If I am out on these streets at 3 am in the morning, standing on property that I don't own and a cop rolls up and questions me...he is getting FULL COOPERATION. That pat down protects not only the protects me!

Now go read Terry Vs. Ohio and stop acting like the cops are the bad guys and that POS Damarion Wise is a saintly good guy!

notSocial, my darling friend, there was suspicious activity.

Wise was on private property, he does not own, at 3 am in the morning. The police have every right to question him. Forget the phone call, even if the police would just be patrolling by and seen him, the police have a right to stop and question him.

Seriously, if the police roll by your house at 3 am in the morning and see this same guy on your property, would you really want them to keep on driving past him?

"At the time, Wise was under indictment for another drug trafficking offense in a 2010 case."

The police knew him, they know his criminal history, the police did every right.
