So we were live tweeting and posting on Facebook today about the ongoing manhunt and ensuing standoff with cop killer Jorge Zambrano. Because that’s what we do here at Turtleboy Sports – we report the news. And guess what? That’s what we are ALWAYS gong to do and we apologize for NOTHING!!! Just wanted to make that perfectly clear. We make mistakes from time to time, but posting this was NOT one of those mistakes:

We got so much shit because of this post from turtle riders who are normally pretty supportive of the blog. Let’s check out the critiques: (no offense if you’re one of the people who made these posts – we’re not mad at you, we just wanna have a discussion about this)

Alright let’s break down why all of these things are silly…..

1. This is disresepectful

No it’s not. Keeping citizens informed about a dangerous situation is OBVIOUSLY not disrespectful.

2. Turtleboy is giving the criminal a tactical advantage

Yea, that’s it. That’s exactly what happened. This guy was sitting in a closet on his iPhone checking the latest updates on Turtleboy Sports. That’s what he was doing. He was just waiting for us to slip up and show the cops and STOP team outside of the house. If we didn’t post that he would have no idea he was surrounded. It’s not like they were repeatedly speaking to him over a megaphone or anything like that. He literally had NO IDEA he was surrounded until we posted it on our Facebook page. Oh yea, and Turtleboy was the ONLY Facebook page that posted any pictures of this. Everyone else was sworn to silence.

See how dumb that sounds? Please, think before you post. The next door neighbor was posting live video updates which hundreds of people were sharing all over Facebook. Only a moron would think that Turtleboy gave this idiot any sort of tactical advantage.

3. Tbe news respects officers wishes not to film deadly situations

Nuff said. Maybe this is a generational thing.

 

4. This is damaging to the families of law enforcement

We get it, you have a family member that’s a cop. We’re real proud of ya. But when they signed up for a job in law enforcement, they knew media coverage was part of the job. The media has a right to cover relevant news stories, regardless of whose feelings these hurt. And here’s an idea – if seeing these images is somehow triggering to you because you have a family member who is a cop, then don’t go on Facebook. It’s not our job to provide a mobile safe space that follows you around as you peruse through the Internet.

 

5. Police officers don’t respect Turtleboy

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 10.52.59 PM

OK. We don’t write these blogs to please cops. If they like it, they like it. If they don’t, they don’t. Not gonna stop us from calling it like we see it. We’ve stood by police since our inception in the face of unprecedented attacks by black lives matter terrorists, CNN, and Hillary Clinton. Any cop that doesn’t appreciate the work we’ve done can subscribe to the Huffington Post or the New York Daily News instead. They’re really good to cops.

Oh, and speaking of opportunistic boot lickers, look when this page was created:

Hey Police, look at me!! I’m one of the good ones!!! I care about your feelings, unlike Turtleboy. Please like my page!! Blue lives matter!!!

This guy said it best:

    Police should simply jam the internet while operations are ongoing.

    Glad you reported the story, it was done very-well too. The photos and videos jeopardized or disrespected nobody. It’s OK when a major news outlet, does what they want and creates havoc. But when a small city blog does, it’s not right. Don’t buy it, keep doing what you’re doing. At least your blog is interesting and mentally in 2016 !

    I can’t believe Rochdale has not been called Crotchdale yet.

    I want to see the video of them shooting the piece of garbage. To the butt hurt people, don’t read it if you done like it.

    The police did an incredible job on Sunday, and I hope the wounded officer has a speedy recovery.

    Turtleboy, I think your coverage during the event was great. It makes the police look good by showing how professional and competent they are, and it also adds some important accountability. Remember when the LAPD set fire to the house Dorner was in and then let it burn? I can only see coverage of these things as mostly beneficial.

    Excellent work by the force.

    We love TBS and yes we watched the same vids and got our updates form both our neighbors in town and TBS. However comparing this to the media coverage from the OJ slow chase are two different things. NO I’m sure that asshole was not checking TBS or his FB feed for updates but you didn’t know who else was in the house or even on the phone with someone else that could be seeing the video and telling him where the cops were positioning around the house. Clearly this shit head was not going to come out and had no value of life so taking out one or two more cops with him would be something he’d want to do and making it easier by giving away tactical positions was putting another brother, father, uncle’s life in danger. I don’t see this ever changing with all the updates in technology but I can certainly see both sides of this.

    Lmao people are so stupid. This clown wasn’t some badass who could take down a bunch of cops even if he knew their locations. He shot one unsuspecting cop at a traffic stop because he is a fucking coward. Not some retired
    Navy seal badass….give me a break people. These internet warrior just want to act like They give a shit to give their pointless lives meaning. It’s like changing your Facebook picture to the Paris flag after those shootings and pretending to give a shit about the issues…the Internet is an amazing tool and it has done a lot of good, but most of the time it’s so GD annoying and full of these ignorant keyboard warriors. Keep doing what you do TB and fuck everyone else.

    Great job TurtleBoy. Keep up the good work. Regardless of the negative comments, that’s what independent news is for, a different perspective. You brought us the news when we wanted it, that’s not disrespectful, that’s what news should be.

    Hahahaha TB you make me laugh! The amount of bullshit that went along with yesterday’s reporting by some people. Like seriously….whining and over correcting details back and forth, back and forth…. Who gives a fu**! Just say what you see and shut the fu^* up about the rest! Never mind reporting what your husbands cousins dog sitter saw. I clarified the misconception of rochdale street and rochdale (the town) for some folks who didn’t know the difference…. I’m still getting snarky responses….. Hello it’s over, move the fu** on! Some bitched about what you posted (which I found helpful) however I bet they looked at it first!! Just sayin!! Do what you do TB

    I’m thinking these videos could have been sent anywhere but TBS was the chosen source to connect to. The Telegram told us a suspect was at large, armed and dangerous. TBS told me who to be afraid of and what his history was. Also the added bonus of what stripper to withhold my dollars from.
    I will be honest and say the writing can be overly disrespectful and I don’t agree with everything but corrupt politicians and organizations have been brought down due to diligent investigative work. I hate to fuel an over inflated ego but honestly must say this blog has turned into a force to be reckoned with.

    I watched live feed on Facebook most of the day as this was unfolding! The person filming the video did a great job! She stated she wasn’t posting anything that was not clearly visible from the location the suspect was and all of the audio was through a bullhorn that the suspect could clearly hear! I am grateful for being able to see that raw footage that we will never see on the news! It was amazing to watch this unfold and see the way the police handled this situation with such grace and restraint! When the Boston Maraton bombings happened every minute was on every news station! The news shows accidents scenes where people have lost their lives all the time over and over! Why is that different? Nothing that was covered by turtle boy or private citizens was harmful, rude, or disrespectful to the police! In fact it was just the opposite!

    I was getting my live reports from Turtleboy on Sunday….not the Telegram….not Masslive. I was at Frank’s on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester. No sooner had TB reported the events, 15-20 cruisers came screaming down Shrewsbury Street along with an ambulance heading to UMass with the dead POS criminal Zambrano.

    God Bless You, Officer Tarentino…..

    Some people are way too sensitive. I don’t even get it really. I support the turtle.
