Reply To: Reasonable shelter denied to registrants facing horrific storms


I had posted this disregard for the safety of registrants on our WARof FL site yesterday. Even though Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a speech yesterday that all those that need help will be assisted, Sheriff Grady Judd turns around and makes this inhumane statement.

One good thing: Last night on WTSP, a Tampa Bay CBS affiliate, the news team had brought this matter up and how, not just here in Florida, but nationally have heard about this. Florida ACLU responded quickly to the Polk county sheriffs office regarding this and their opinion was quoted. WTSP also quoted some positive opinions of those on Facebook. Exposure like this is a plus and lets hope it spreads like wildfire as well.
