I cannot believe that not a one of you replied to this question or have considered a resolution.I am disgraced at the fact that my state's capital feels that football players are more important than those young men and women fighting overseas, some sacrificing their lives, to enable you to live a free lifestyle and enjoy the game of football. Until this changes, I will not be spending my hard earned money on any of the games or frequent business that support them. I will also pass the word along to other alumni of FSU in my area, many of which served in the armed forces as well.

FSU football or Servicemen who fight for our country? Tallahassee officials have yet to answer the question. Is it to difficult?
On 7-18-08 we published the following:
Link Which is it Tallahassee, Leon County LEO? Fallen hero's or football? Answer please
In response to a Tallahassee Democrat article wherein they stated that on days when there is a FSU football game they may not be able to provide an escort to a fallen soldier. We wrote the Leon County and Tallahassee Commissioners and also staff at FSU asking that simple question.
To date none have responded. This is concerning on three fronts.
1. Are they afraid to answer the question for fear of alienating the high dollar Alumni of FSU?
2. Have they decided that responding to questions asked by the citizenry without deep pockets is
not necessary (our are they to busy ducking questions re: Rachel Hoffman)?
3. FSU has it's own police department. Are they nt capable of handling football games?
After all only not many officers would be needed. PGR could handle the rest. To date PGR has been handling it.
So again we ask? Which is it? Servicemen that have served with honor or FSU football?
For those reasers who might also like to know the answer to that question here are the e-mail addresses. Maybe you will have more success. Let us know if you do. Let the second battle for the honnor and respect those who serve us begin.
Following are the e-mail address (other than the TPD police chief, finding a way to e-mail them is difficult, I operate on the assumption they get enough it will get to him.)
We have included college officials addresses and the Tallahassee Democrat this time.
Tallahassee Police Chief , Dennis Michael Jones, A Vietnam Veteran 850-891-4200
Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, U.S. Marine Corp Reserves, 850-922-3346
Tallahassee Commisioners: Use this link to contact all of them at once
Use this link to contact all the County commissioners at once:
Note: during our last offensive (and this is war people make no doubt about it) two commisioners,Cliff Thaell, At-Large andBryan Desloge, District 4 stood with us.
Apparently the rest were afraid. Remember it doesn't matter where you live, this country or abroad, If you believe in standing up for those who stand for you, if you believe that "WE the PEOPLE" are the government and our elected officials are to answer to "US". If you believe that winning small victories can lead to large ones. If you believe that our soldiers have gotten the shaft long enough, while they are in a damn desert right now the list we can do is send a letter or two. Let it begin. Tell them to answer the question. Soldiers or football?
Hold there Freaking feet to the Fire. Expose them as patriots or cowards. Demand they respect our servicemen. No Retreat, No Compromise, No surrender! Only then can WE THE PEOPLE RIDE FREE!
