Tallahassee, Florida a State Capital where patriotism is dead.
Following are postings we have made regarding Leon County and Tallahassee's failure to provide escorts for servicemen. We have not included postings regarding other areas that do provide escorts. Primarily because our experience has been that most areas do. Leon Counties Next door neighbors Wakulla, Taylor and Gadsen counties provide escorts without near the resources of the home of the Capital.
We do not count the escort for the 779th as that was a show at the soldiers expense and they were not fooled for a moment (see post here).
Leon County Sheriff Campbell has verbalized his support of escorts. It has yet to be tested. Tallahassee Chief Jones initially verbalized support. However he then qualified it in so many ways it boils down to, if he is dead and doesn't interfere with an FSU football game and we have the resources and, and, and,...........
It is our contention that if you are going to throw a war, then you best drop whatever else you are doing and pay a little respect to those you are asking to fight for "YOU". Otherwise, don't throw no damn war!
Be advised that the views contained in the links below are not presented as that of the Patriot Guard or any of it's members. They are just the views of an American citizen!
The following are in know particular chronological order, feel free to disseminate them to every serviceman you know who might be considering coming to Tallahassee.
Panama City News Herald devotes space to the "Battle of Tallahassee" yet no answer from Tally politicos, FSU football or Patriots?
Tallahassee Police Department says no To escort for CWO Carl Davis
Well now TPD apparently does have the resources when it comes to football and to hell with servicemen.
FSU football or Servicemen who fight for our country? Tallahassee officials have yet to answer the question. Is it to difficult?
Alabama invades Florida or Tallahassee Police chief finally answers-football more important than servicemen-which is it Chief.
