- Erica Jenkins is facing additional jail time for assaulting guards at the Douglas Co Correction (Type: link | Published: 2015-06-01T18:48:24+0000)
WOWT 6 News: Erica Jenkins is facing additional jail time for assaulting guards at the Douglas Co Corrections Center. This is on top of a life sentence and 140-200 years for other crimes.Comments:
eanad acissej - She is a reason why death penalty should still be in effect.
reveohw aroc - she dont care as she is going to have a Free home insurance and food
ssov liag - Lets stop all news of this rancid family
llessur eoj - Wowt please do people like us a favor.....Stop showing or reporting on this trash!!! Please!!!! Im mean seriously! Save your headlines for news!!!! She should be dead already! Dont give her or any other piece of crap the time of day. Please!! I PROMISE your ratings will not go down if you leave trash like this out of the news. I get mad because as I stated before....shes not news....and our tax dollars shouldn't be wasted on this ........... you already know!!!
dlawgnit ydna - With the good time law, she should be out in 10 years, thanks to Ernie C
erah hsoj - When there is nothing after jail why would she behave now? The exact reason we need the death penalty. All we have now is to pay for her food, housing, and health care for as long as she lives.
samoht giarc - Let's see. She hits an Officer with a broom and NO ONE is supposed to care?? You guys are ridiculous. How about caring about the officers that were assaulted by this piece of garbage.
ynohtna nhoj - Hahahahaha !!!!!!! Bring back the DEATH PENALTY
kibarh ynnej - This family is why the death penalty is a must. What a piece of trash.
dnaldah adnama - So, this might come off rude, but, why are they still bothering? She is still getting attention, which is what she wants. I'm not saying let her get away with it, but I'm saying stop using money to have court date for this chick. She already has 140 years at the bare minimum, and she'll be alive for less than 60 of them probably. If she kills someone, sure, having another court date. But for all her future assaults on inmates or officers, put her in solitary and save everyone the money. You are beating a dead horse and wasting money.
ttoz-ocerg yhtak - Well since we dont have a death penalty any longer...why dont we instill that all former death row inmates be required to give an organ for a person that truly appreciates life.
enna ellehcar - Maybe if nebraska didn't get rid of the death penalty...we could get rid of her...😒
auzaraz acissej - Should post something people actually care about. Like how is that boy that got hit by a car??
nedael luap - Yeah go ahead and add on a few more years lol... all she is gonna do is play the game of how many years can i get. She can never get out. Even with good time she still has to serve 135 years lol... She gonna shoot for a 1000 years lol.
snhoj veb - what's she got to loose??? Not like they can give her the death penalty for everything she has done....probably eats better now than in her entire life, has a warm clean bed, and just one hateful person...
sknab assile - Additional jail time? She'll never see life outside of there anyways. Why are we wasting city time and money on this trash? Put her in the hole for a few months where they will only allow her out of the "cage" for one hour out of her day!
tuobakcoh tnuom adnohr - What has she got to lose to continue acting like a moron they should keep her in a straight jacket at all times!
hguorrad ytteb - Why Did They Abolish The Death Penalty?!!
yrret ibbob - Her and her brother need to be put down like the diseased animals they are
ejteok irol - If they are not going to bring back the death penalty then all these POS should be put in solitary confinement for the rest of their misserable lifes!!! All the Lifers will be begging to die!!!
cdalp navillus nibor - Omg three times ... It's lose people not loose. What does she have to LOSE?

WOWT 6 News: The debate over Nebraska's use of the death penalty is taking a new turn. It's a twist that could put the matter to the voters.Comments:
retsof latsyrk - It should of been our vote in the fist place. We are the ones paying for them to live.
redlats ecinaj - IF IT PASSES USE IT!
setag .p xela - Yeah, well, there could be a referendum to reinstate school segregation and I'm sure there'd be plenty of people on the wrong side of that issue, too. Let's move forward instead. Iowa hasn't had the death penalty since 1965, and they're doing just fine.
redleg nav hannah - I hate when people bring up Christianity. This has nothing to do with religion. It has to do with punishment. If the people of your state believe that the punishment should fit the crime, then that's what you get. A man brutally stabbed his own mother to death and drowned his 4 year old brother by throwing him in a river days before his 5th birthday. Not to mention we have our very own serial killer in Nikko Jenkins whose victim, among others, was the hardworking mother carjacked and shot to death on the way home bringing medicine to her disabled daughter who was sick. What you want to do is put them in prison for life with 3 square meals a day, being treated better than most veterans in this country. F* that noise. And I am VERY glad this could go to inidividual voters because our politicians, on both sides, almost NEVER actual correctly represent their constituents. They represent the lobbyists. Period. End of story.
sggob sew - If you want to kill people out of vengeance, may I recommend playing Grand Theft Auto?
ynohtna nhoj - BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY.
yevrah dyolf - I am against the death penalty for several reasons. First, it is more expensive than life in prison. Second, in the last few months there has been several people on death row across the country who have been released because they were found not to be guilty after all. The death penalty is too big a risk. And third, I am a christian and according to Christ all these killers have to do to enter heaven is to repent. So why cut short there punishment by executing them?
namhciw divad - Johnny Sway, top 4 cities/states with no death penalty lead nation in murder rates..Baltimore, Maryland. .New York City, Chicago, Washington DC. ..
neellik nrekcm mmap - Watch the millions and millions of dollars of the Koch brothers and their friends attempt to manipulate our state. We elected the men and women who voted the death penalty down.
sbocaj enil ycnan - Yeah, I liked it when we spent $100 million over 40 years to kill three people.
cnalbel yesdnil - Vote yes and start killing
thgink divad - Good. It needs to go to the voters.
yaws ynnhoj - http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/deterrence-states-without-death-penalty-have-had-consistently-lower-murder-rates If the death penalty is a deterrent, why do states without the death penalty have consistently lower murder rates?
naed ave - We pay for these criminals therefore we should decide whether or not the death penalty stays. I hope it actually gets used when it comes back.
noremac einahpets - Put it to a vote!!!
nagaf ekim - Nebraska being a deep deep red state should give these people a clue as to why the death penalty was abolished. It was a fiscal decision to SAVE TAX PAYERS MONEY. But it's obvious that Nebraska likes their death penalty just a bit more. Hey how about your precious governor being brought up on charges of trying to bring in ILLEGAL drugs into the country? Ends justify the means...right Nebraska?
gnilbmat brab - Fix the law so it is actually used appropriately and speedily. The death penalty should not mean life in prison and endless appeals at taxpayer expense.
renrets enidualc - It should be to the voters in the beginning
sarugerg .j mailliw - it should be with the voters as the majority want the death penalty
ebotenilk yrrab - If we don't use the death penalty ship them losers off to Texas they have a backbone. If E. Chambers is for something you know it's not good.
naols lorac - Voters need to have the say!!!
- The victim of an animal bite at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo was hospitalized in critical condition (Type: link | Published: 2015-05-31T19:52:47+0000)
WOWT 6 News: The victim of an animal bite at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo was hospitalized in critical condition Sunday afternoon.Comments:
ggollek eirrac - If you don't have details why make it a story!
esor yllil - More than half the people complaining about half of a story clearly only made half the effort to read. The story is in the attached link. Hope that employee will be alright.
sworrub ffilc - Cage up wild animals what do you expect
nalyob eoj - Why report with half the story? Probably a bee sting
relssek k aluap - Don't blame the animal blame the human
If the zoo puts an animal down I will be sick
dnikedew ydnarb - What??? How about some more details???
etihw nitsua - What more information do you people need? Nothing that occurred is critical to your daily business. If it were someone you knew personally you'd already be aware of the full story. Carry on.
hcirelleh idyl - It was likely a handler, but from the information available we don't even know if the animal belonged to the zoo. It could've been someone's pet dog for all we know.
yarrum nerak - Prayers to the employee and their family.
rotciv ytsirhc - http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/2013/06/27/the-myth-of-the-komodo-dragons-dirty-mouth/
tuobakcoh tnuom adnohr - Do people that comment with out reading feel stupid?
hcirdoow ellehcim - I'd guess some idiot was taunting an animal and the animal got pissed.
If an animal was loose I'm sure we would have heard about it.
I guess when the whole story comes out we will know. But my money is on someone was acting like an idiot.
nalyob eoj - Channel 7 says a zoo employee
nosnom sugna nasus - Saying prayers for employee
llertnac tak - READ THE ARTICLE PEOPLE!
It was a komodo dragon.
yelwaccm akire - Prayers for a speedy recovery
kceb elocin yelyah - The zoo is very hands off with its animals for animal safety and for keeper safety. I learned that when I did a job shadow in the summer. If it was an employee I'll be very curious to see what happened and if that employee was at fault or if it was just a freak accident. Prayers for both the injured person and for the animal!
zenitram ettenna - Not even worth posting. You have no information
ttekop ttocs - What a waste of information. Just bloody tell us
emor-nodwons ydnas - Hope the woman employee is ok. Komodo dragons have a ton of nasty bacteria in their bites. If the inital bite doesn't take their prey down, the bacteria will eventually.
etlob sivart - Why is the headline written as if the victim is patron? Being treated and released does not interpret into critical condition, is there more story?

WOWT 6 News: A Henry Doorly Zoo employee was hospitalized in critical condition after being bitten by a Komodo dragon, a species of lizard, Sunday morning.Comments:
edirblik-treiats ydnas - Oh no.. Those creatures excrete bacteria when they bite causing blood poisoning. Praying this person is OK.
guh ul - The headline states critical condition. The article states treated and released... Which is it?
tdlefoh brab - http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2013-06/animal-fun-facts-does-komodo-dragon-really-kill-bacteria-filled-bite
alaya elleinad - She was treated and released.
grebleknehcs mada - Turns out the girl that was bitten is not a Targaryon. Hopefully she recovers. Prayers to her and her family.
essilure rud - Two stitches, treated and released is hardly critical condition. Very bad reporting here. Makes one lose trust in the news source
kcollop ecreip adnil - What's the deal. You make it sound horrible. She was taken to hospital, critical condition. Yet they treated and released her. Come on!
rehctub adnam - Is this the huge one that's in the cat complex building?
sanalp idnyc - The employee was treated and released. Way to sensationalize the story.
nospmis eimaj - Prayers to the employee and family
nilrik-nospmoht refinnej - Oh no!! Very frightening as Komodo saliva is a toxic bacterial soup (or bio weapon)! Hope the HDZ staff member will be okay! Prayers for them and their family!
htims nor - good lord, those are some nasty creatures.
eroom leahcim - The dangers of working with exotic animals.
suikah imat - Sure hope they are going to be ok.
rrab eiramnaej - Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery. Hoping it isn't my Zoo buddy Erika that got bit though...
notsniw kcisme ellehcim - Prayers for the poor guy!!
nahtuol refinnej - Hope she's ok. That's gotta hurt. Those are powerful creatures God created!
nesredna tsnre nnaigroeg - http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/reptiles/komodo-dragon/. Prayers to the person and their family
namlhob yllek - Whoa we were just there at that time

WOWT 6 News: Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts says the vote to repeal the death penalty won't stop his administration from proceeding with the executions of 10 currently condemned inmates. He also doesn't plan to cancel a shipment of lethal injection drugs the state bought earlier this month.Comments:
'reppep' dnalevelc ttocs - Let the people of Nebraska vote on this issue..... It is obvious our state senators are not listening to the voice of the people.....
sknab nesalc naej - There sentenced to die so let it be
yeltneb leahcim nella - Electing Rickets was one of the biggest mistakes that Nebraska has made.
ttenneb eiko evets - Go get em Pete!!!!
dwod'o noved - He is going to be arrested by the fbi for procurement of illegal drugs. I can't wait.
gnilremek illas - They were already convicted and sentenced.
hcicpad kire - A little boy fit? Someone who is supposed to lead is throwing a hissy fit? Even our politicians don't understand the word NO.
akriwhc enneirda - It's interesting that every time I see an article about the death penalty there is a photo of the horrifying "death bed". To be fair, make it a dual image with one side being the murdered victims.
eromlliw lorac - GOOD!!! Now quit talking and start doing!!
sdnas sirk - If Ernie doesn't want their sentences to be carried out, I say send all 10 over to live with him!!!!!! Might get rid of that idiot then......he is a radical bully and he dresses like a janitor instead of a professional. I have no love lost there.....he's a disgrace.
trahpek liag - Line them up. Let's get it done!
tdlefneor yelhsa - Well pricketts if marijuana is sooo dangerous just give them a joint
refiefp ennaej - Good for you Gov. Ricketts! Also, let's all work to reinstate the death penalty.
roht sirhc - He really seems to love killing people!
enivri einnoc - I the sentence is death go for it and stop wasting money keeping them alive !!! What about the victims?? Think about them rather than waste time on the CRIMINALS !!!
releehw irol - these people that have gotten brutally murdered did not have a choice in how they got killed why should the killers?
elbmag giarc - So he and his administration will be breaking the law. Impeach and prosecute them all.
dnartrahs nhoj - Get this clown out of office!!!
syealc essej - He is making the right choice. Chill out. These guys are convicted of crimes and all had their trials in court. Its perfectly fine
zednanreh ttam - Lol grandfathering executions now eh? What a nice community...
eniw nayrb - Liberal logic.. We need to keep convicted cold blooded murderers alive, but killing innocent babies is perfectly fine...

WOWT 6 News: "We are sad that she is no longer with us but are so proud of all she has accomplished and all the good that she has helped spread." - Ellen Holtz, mother of fallen OPD Officer Kerrie Orozco. Read the full statement at the link below.Comments:
senoj enitsirhc - Ellen Holtz, you did a beautiful job raising her! May God give you comfort.
sirrom nivek - This is Omaha, we back our men & women in BLUE. May God be with your family for the years to come as you start to get back to your daily routine. You will never forget Kerrie, but will always remember the love she had for her city and the love that city had for her. I am so proud to call Omaha home and love the omaha police department. I walked in to work this morning listening to people say how cool it was to see all the police at the funeral, then to turn the conversation and complain about the police. Breaks my heart that people complain about someone that is willing to stand between them and a gunmen. Police across this city, state, & nation deserve our support & prayers they wake up each day and tell their loved ones they love them and know they may not come home. That is dedication and someone who loves everyone. So to the police haters think about how much you are putting on the line each day when you go to work when you complain about them. LOVE OMAHA PD!!!!! Keep up the awesome work keeping us safe. KERRIE ON
gneh almerk einahpets - Well said, Mama. #KerrieOn #Kerrie1969
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, Rest in Peace. Amen.

From everything we have heard she was an outstanding and caring Officer who was really striving to make a difference. You should be so proud of her!!! And her legacy lives on with her precious baby girl!

hclew nerak - Beautiful! Kerrie's family will remain in my prayers.

kcomllits-neztnerol nerak - God bless you and your family. Kerrie was a true blessing we were blessed to have her serve and protect our community.

WOWT 6 News: Twenty-six-year-old Lamond Secret Jr., shot in the back of the head while putting air in a tire at an Omaha gas station on Monday, has died. Twenty-one-year-old Michael Goynes is in custody.Comments:
nessumsar enil enirehtak - When is this going to stop? Maybe Ernie and the legislature should quit celebrating letting heinous murderers live long happy lives and Ernie should be working with his district to end the murder crime rampage while he filibusters for mountain lions. Pathetic
eromlliw lorac - Unfortunately the gang squad has a real problem on their hands. May the Good Lord keep them safe as they bring these thugs in.....
nesnej yoj - Omaha police need a raise.
htims kram - No worries. In our mamby pamby world let's not have any death penalty. Let's do away with harsh penalties for criminals. Let's simply shake our heads and make excuses for criminals. Keep on this path and we will see more and more violent crime. Discipline and punishment is needed.
nnalb adnerb - The violence needs to stop in Omaha ever since officer Kerrie OROZCO has died it's been crime centeral and wished this crap would stop it's very ridiculous
semloh .a eitteb - so sad, another family is in pain,,,,,,,,, prayers for all...
elocin ynahteb - RIP Lamond, my prayers are with your family.
yblehs allicsirp - Praying for the family
sreffots eener - So sad there is NO reason for all these shootings!!!
nna ajnat - This is so disgusting to me anymore!!! When is the violence gonna stop!!
yorlim sinned - Baltimore is doing it right. The police are on vacation and letting the mayor police her city. They are cleaning up on each other.
remklov nad - Who cares? Just gangsters killing gangsters
epop acissej - I rather my tax dollars go to the poison for the death penalty than the killers meals tyvm..
skcih ffej - Hopefully the gang-banger who shot and killed him will get life in prison, with no parole. Time to put a stop to this nonsense.
sgnimmuc eicart - :'( may he rest in peace. This violence needs to stop. Prayers for the family
asega latsyrc - ERNIE where are you...where is attempted murder and murder charges.... come on young people stop killing one another and start cherishing life!
azboh yggep - I bet it is too gang related. Depends what you define as a "gang"
eiram haras - News was saying how a lot of the recent violence is retaliation to this case, wonder if we will see more since he died? Maybe more police in areas of 30th-60tg Ames area. So sad it comes down to this. Shoot, bring in NG and have them patrol the streets
nesnej yoj - Now they know they get three squares, free medical and safe shelter....and no death row. Let the bullets fly. Thanks Ernie.
omraged aliehs - It's so sad to see that these young people would rather be worthless pieces of sh*t, than productive members of society. My thoughts and prayers with Lamond's family and friends.
hcseram eniledam - Smfh, now a days you cant even go to a gas station without being fearful for your life. When I get the money, my daughter and I are leaving this death pit!!

WOWT 6 News: This picture from a Sonic in Topeka, Kansas went viral -- a father snapped a photo of hot dog buns inside a bathroom. Would you still eat at the restaurant? Our sister-station reached out to Sonic, which said the buns were quickly removed and that they've since passed a safety inspection.Comments:
yllibdoohazi ffej - Ask yourself...Self whats the ingredients of a hot dog? So what difference does it make where the buns are kept..
enneb yrral - How does a safety inspection go for hotdog buns found in a bathroom. Were swabs taken and Petri dishes used or did they just pass the sniff test?
kulas mailliw - And people make jokes about Hot Dog water...
regreb hcaz - as usual a big deal made out of nothing
revart ahtnamas - Give me a freaking break! Their in a cart, in their packaging!
They aren't in the toilet!
nekcol llehctim - I think we first need to address that they are hot dog buns and hot dogs go in them. And hot dogs are encased scraps of lips, beaks, and bone fragments. But oh, no don't put the buns near the toilet.
kcaah seniah yllek - Disgusting! I don't care if they "passed" inspection...do you know how far the spray from a toilet travels? And they still plan to use the buns! Yuck!!
kecinrh kcin - I dont want my food stored in a room full of poop and pee odor. Packaged or not the idea of it is gross.
remohcs rehtaeh - Uhm gross!! Would you people store your hot dog buns in your bathroom? Let alone a public one? Nasty...
flow derf - Did you ever think that there may be some hot dogs hanging around in the bathroom.
trekrom adlig - The buns are in a package, so what!
lcap hguorobsdlog nna - I don't want to eat buns that have been that close to human buns.
nonnaf divad - I'm more concerned about the quality of the hot dogs
ikceiwonys eecyaj - It's not like they are unwrapped or in the toilet or something.... If you all knew what was really in 1/2 the food you eat... just saying!
enilenih j nylorac - The bathroom looks clean and they were in packaging. Don't see any problems
hud regnar degnared airam - Do people not realize you brush your teeth with a toothbrush that just sits in a bathroom for 3+ months.
daehetihw nhoj - Well, it is the crapital city.............
naneek eigna - Hope they were thrown into the dumpster!!!
trekrom adlig - So, how many peeps on the way out with take-out food, stop in and do their biz?
hcawc ainigriv - GROSS!!! And if I knew this had happened or been part of their practice I definitely would NOT eat there!!! Sort of surprised they passed a safety inspection as we've all seen those studies where when a toilet is flushed with no or open lid the germs spray feet away from the bowl---that bowl is way too close to that food product if you ask me!!!
ahir-ednil neelloc - Not in a million! I've eaten there 3 times and horrible experience (food) every time.

WOWT 6 News: In one of its final acts of the 2015 session, the Nebraska Legislature Thursday morning overrode a veto of bill that will allow children of undocumented immigrants to get a driver's license. What do you think of the decision?Comments:
gnirreh anirbas - Does nobody realize they are already driving, just not legally? Now more will get a license, insurance, legally drive and we all are safer. Seriously bigots only see illegals getting licenses. Ugh
elok llahsram - First the death penalty goes. Then we allow for immigrants to get driver's licenses. What a week... Seems like Nebraska is finally taking steps forward to catch up with the rest of the country.
rolwal enna - Very pleased the legislature did the right thing and overrode the veto.
mahgninnuc nosaj - we are on earth a little while every person deserves a chance
kibarh ynnej - Good. Now when they are in an accident the will actually have insurance and a license.
eromlliw lorac - Why not give everyone drivers licenses....hell, they get everything else! Food stamps, SSI, state assistance......so why the hell not....Now, how about working on something important......like Medicaid for those of us who can't afford Obama care!
sagelliv siul - Alright lets clear up some things since WOWT doesn't know how to write an article. Dreamers, are part of a group of children who were brought to the country illegaly through no choice of their own. They were brought by their parents at a toddler age. They grew up in a country, which they think is theirs, and turns out the opposite. Most are law abiding people who have graduated, worked their way up or in some cases offered to join the military. The only thing that won't let them claim themselves as Americans is a piece of paper. Obama was the first to realize what this group of people could mean to the country and the economy. Why would you kick kids who have grown up in your neighborhoods, played with your kids, or probably helped you in some sort of way, out. Makes absolutely no sense to penalize them for something they had no involvement in. So Obama declared a Deferred Action to immediately give these people work visas and social security numbers. Not just anybody. You must prove you have remained within the country for various years, show no threat to the country and are either studying, working or present interest in the military. They aren't just accepting hoodlums into this. Therefor these kids are not illegal. They have everything they need to get a license. Nebraska is just living in old times and needs to get with the program. All of you racist, prejudice or whatever type of person you are, need to get your lives together. By the year 2025 1 in every 6 people will be of Hispanic descent. By 2050 1 in every 3 people will be of hispanic descent. So get used to it!
drofsnah yhtak - I thought the legislature was supposed to be for the people not themselves. This is the second override that should not have happened. About time to move to another state.
nattam eimaj - If they can apply for a driver's license then why can't they apply for a citizenship
yraelc dahc - 0 FOR 3, PETE! LOL
eroom ekalb - I know it's wrong to punish the kids for there parents being here illegally but why continue to reward bad behavior?
selarom alecram - Wowt get your story straight they are not "illegals" they are Dreamers or DACA recipients.
nosnaws llij - This makes me mad, Ricketts is trying to do his job!!
namlha evad - This is f*#king bullsh*t !!!!! Cater to the illegals while our vets cant get help!!!!!!
arelacse anul nayrb - They're still going to drive and be like....
eillo sirhc - We have to go through proceses to get a license as citizens. Why shouldn't illegal aliens do processes of legalization of their illegal status to be legally able obtain the documents they want to obtain. (Ie : drivers license ect...) only makes sense.
llezerf ennelram - great decision !
nesneros ttobba einahpets - After the last few days I cannot consider this state to be conservative. Might as wee change the color from red to blue. We have a bunch of liars voted into office. They say they are conservatives but in reality they vote with the liberals. May be time to move to Mississippi, the most conservative state in the nation!
retsbew-elemaignam nnayram - If they want a US driver's license they should become citizens first!
htimsnegnilk nivek - I support the decision.
neshcirdeirf-zerimar enirehtac ynna - The children that have the dreamer status are not undocumented immigrants like they make it sound on this article. These kids have received an employment authorization card that allows them to legally work in the United States of America. It would be nice if this was clearly explained so people would have all the facts before they started to judge. It's just ridiculous that they can legally work in our country but not drive.

WOWT 6 News: Marcus Wheeler had a long criminal history prior to his involvement in a deadly shootout with police. That included a case that was dropped because of an overlap into a high-profile murder case.Comments:
namffuh a nevets - But his mom said he was such a good boy.
yesac .j.d - Just think if that case wasn't dropped kerrie may still be alive with her family..
zeugnimod nej - STOP REPORTING ON HIM PLEASE!!!
tdnew nøsaj - This is all we should ever see of this loser again. No face, no name! STOP MAKING CRIMINALS FAMOUS!
raluocs trauts bed - Uncanny the difference between how a criminal kills an officer and the community unites; when a cop kills a criminal there is rioting and protests. #bluelivesmatter #KerrieOn
snhoj evets - Well Albert Rucker was arrested 146 times in 6 years for anything from drugs to felony possession of firearms and didn't spend more than 3 months in jail. You know what happened ? He murdered Officer Ty Pratt. I think it's time for the Judges to be held accountable for THEIR bad decisions.
notned yelhsa - It's so sad our officers do their job and then have to pay the price bc someone else doesn't do theirs.
nella ymmij - Why is this miserable POS being talked about. Rot in hell along with every member of your so called family that said you were not a violent person!
notroh nhoj - Stop trying to assasinate his character they are both dead, all you are doing is causing more tension if anything, why don't you write some real news.
aehs eillehs - I agree we dont care about him ..stop showing him ..
soalokin sorofikin - I understand and agree with all of you that say you don't want to see his face anymore but they are educating us on the details. The more we know as a community the more we can attempt to change. This isn't 'over.' This just brings to light a serious fault in our justice system
nagrom mij - Wish every news station would never ever post this name or picture ever again.
kibarh ynnej - Uuurgh! Should of already been in prison. Piece of crap! Yet his mother can sit there and say...he was turning his life around...wtfe! Wake up!
rellim ener - Good riddance of this thug.
sniknej emiaj - Quit showing his face please....
The justice system is a joke! What a slap in the face to her family and friends for even reporting this?!!! As if they want to read through it! I was disgusted and didn't even know Officer Orozco! This man should have been behind bars, just think Kerrie could still be alive, caring for her husband and infant daughter! How irritating and devastating! 😓
llebpmac ennyl eicak - He's dead. Justice served and rightfully so. Let's not give his name anymore air time.
reimsebbe liag - Why couldn't he of just killed Erika Jenkins . That would have saved tax payers dollars and Kerrie would still be alive!
nesnej yoj - So sickening glad he is gone and wiped off this planet
yelnoc cire - I blame ernie chambers
nosnaitsirhc nairb - Just happy the P O S IS DEAD!!!
senoj-fulez einnep - He's where he deserves to be. To bad it didn't happen sooner.

WOWT 6 News: One of the more enduring images that surfaced as the community paid tribute to fallen Police Officer Kerrie Orozco this week came from two construction workers along the funeral procession route. We spoke with them today. www.wowt.com/home/headlines/Construction-Worker-Photo-Taking-Social-Media-by-Storm-305406151.htmlComments:

rehcrik yellehs - Just one more reason I am proud to be from & live in Nebraska!!

nahrof semaj - I think this is one also!
lrep ocsilibig nna - I watched this young man and everytime a car came by he would raise his hand to them! He was there for the entire procession, in htat position. God bless this gentleman!!

nosliw aicila - Good guys right there!
sretep nej - I saw this young man that day, he was not only easily seen because of his shirt, but he was also the last person on the bridge before going into Iowa. What people may not know about this picture is he wasn't just captured in this picture on one knee as quick moment, he remained in that position for the entire funeral procession! An hour and a half and not one time, when I looked over, was he off his knee. I have told a couple people about him when recapping that day, its really neat that he is getting recognition for his gesture.
nodrog mit - The city is with you opd
onazol roht adnerb - AWESOME men who have been raised with respect for other and authority. God Bless
yar rehtaeh - Remarkable young men. Their gestures give me goosebumps. And I love that they put all of the attention back onto Kerrie. #kerrieon

nospmas ellehcim - This picture right here...such a simple kind gesture carries so much more of a powerful image and message than all of Ferguson and baltimore combined. Be the good example for others!
htims icrad - Outstanding young men! A great representation of what Nebraksa is.
thgirw plots ylrebmik - Truly heartfelt respect a great way to salute a hero's passing
noskcaj norahs - Thought that was a cool photo!
remerk c neleh - That is Awesome!!!
rehcrik yellehs - It would be so nice if this would start something positive around the country!! Instead of all the rioting!

nesnetsirhc ydoj - Where's everyone who says this is just a north Omaha problem now
rednim divad - ya good move NEBRASKA take away the death penalty now no cares if they go to jail you twats
thgirw .r lohcin - Jesus. Really? When is this senseless violence going to end? I'm so sick of seeing this. And this is supposed to be one of the "safest" cities? I'm so glad for all that came together in the three tragedies in the last month, but this is enough!!
cnalbel yesdnil - Maybe police should just stay away and let them all kill each other off
onaibag yajc - I remember growing up Iike 13,14 years ago I used to hear grown ups talking about how omaha was a good place to raise kids and build a family.. now all I see is more individuals and families wanting to leave omaha.. its a war zone out here !!
nameloc deer naj - 10 commandments: thou shall not kill.......
selarom-zehcnas elocin - Seriously wtf is wrong with Omaha? The OPD need to be extra cautious right now. Sounds like people in Omaha are running rampant.
ebaar kesamot llewej yhtak - Too ridiculous for words.
nna yelik - People need to quit acting brand new to stuff like this. Omaha has always been like this. Its another day in Omaha..... And yes Suz Swanson this was in southwest omaha
namwob nosilla - It isn't even midnight...there has to be a solution to all of this gun crime!! Drugs and gangs need to be prime focus 24/7.
Sad to see so much crime...moving is no solution but I'm leaving this town for a better future.
retsnym ardua - Omaha is getting out of control with the gun violence, violence period. It has become a crime ridden city over the last 15 yrs. Prayers for those that were involved
nippip veb - Seriously!!! Enough is enough!! We need to take our city back!!!
rekceb ycnan - Doesn't anybody learn anything!??!! Stop the violence!!!
nesnetsirhc ydoj - Pretty sad that you isolate yourself to one area. I actually live in a very nice area of North Omaha. I could b just as scared going clear out West and get car jacked at gunpoint or u name it. Open your eyes people
relssek .a asil - Never thought I would buy a gun but.....Home security system set and ready to report. This is crazy!

nitram divad - Sounds like the welfare system is working its magic!
epop acissej - Women who can't take care of their children need to have their uterus ripped out...can we get a president that will pass that law?!?
neskcirdneh yaj - Throw them both away. Even after her kid was shot, the mother was only worried about herself.... Then went to the Casino the next day? Disgusting. Go to jail and rot you selfish waste of space.
sirref ardnas - Continued prayers for this child's healing of mind, body and spirit!

snillor nesnahoj ydnew - Put it to a vote for the people of Nebraska to decide.
olleia bob - It's time to get rid of Earnie Chambers once and for all. Don't reelect any of these clowns. Good try Governor. Lets get the death penalty on the ballot for a state wide vote and then get rid of the scum on death row.
mlohretso nosral yecats - Unbelievable. Have lost so much respect for the state legislature.
spillihp ykcor yor - Nebraska just gave the go ahead to rape and murder because you won't have to pay with your life like your victims.
notlob ettenna - vote them all out of office
emediab ellenaj - We Need The Death Penalty!!!!
nosnaws zus - GOOD JOB LEGISLATURE!
rebew rehpotsirhc - Now tax payers can pay even longer to house criminals, pay for their cable, air conditioning, meals, laundry. Just stupid.
llasrehtoh eoj - Don't know how the 78% of Nebraskans who approve of the current death penalty law are not being represented by their elected law makers.
noillimrev lrac - Save taxpayers money fry . Them all or let them live with the family's that are against the death penalty
tublruh eibbed - Unbelievable!! You would think last week would have been a wakeup call. They need to go!
naed ave - Wow, way to move in the wrong direction, Nebraska Legislature. If you can't make the right decision then let the people of Nebraska make it for you.
loizin nevets - everyone that voted to overturn the veto make sure this is their last term .. :)
rehsif kcir - To those people that don't want the death penalty. You get to house a felon in your home for the rest of their life. That way tax payers don't have to foot the bill for their room at the prison.
ssag evets - Here's how they voted - MOTION - Override Veto on LB268 Senator Chambers offered his motion, MO135, found on page 1872, that LB268 becomes law notwithstanding the objections of the Governor.

WOWT 6 News: Omaha Police are sorting through a rash of violence in the streets - investigating nine shootings over the past four days.Comments:
neerg anelak - Yet, none of their mothers would call them violent. It's time for the enabling to end!
yesac 'nodnol' eissac - I'm sorry our officers can't even take a moment to mourn with out all this garbage going on.
etiaw enilc map - Don't call 911 if you are not going to tell them what you saw.
sllew eiluj - Kinda hard to help with Ernie Chambers egging them on.
eniveduj senoj acinom - It will never end
They are vain, selfish and like the idea of intimidating people to get their way or shoot them in process. They will never finish school, have a job with benefits or own a home. Then we pay their ambulance and ER visit
Sick of ALL thugs through out this city
kibarh ynnej - Because our officers didn't already have enough to deal with. Way to go!
nesnetsirhc yak ardnaxela - Praying for the city, gotta stay strong together, not divide
smailliw erogllik ydnarb - We already lost one great person cause of stupid people! Wth is it going to take? I say round them all up and send their butt down to fight ISIS or to fight our wars. Let our troops who respect our community come home and live IN PEACE. Stupid dumb people get right with the Lord and get your minds right....
nollid ttocs - Way to go Ernie, although under used because of the ACLU, the death penalty was a deterrent. Now with that off the books, for a short time, the thugs can look forward to 3 hots and a cot for the rest of their lives after committing a capital crime. Probably better than what they get now and all courtesy of John Q. Taxpayer.
sarak hsoj - North east lol? Just say 30n ames vicinity or north Omaha..make it easier for wowt subscribers to understand
namhciw divad - They are rejoicing knowing they can kill and at worst life in prison. But I am sure that to will be abolished as soon as Ernie makes some more threats.
elgier ahtram - The violence needs to stop, it's like a life doesn't matter. The community needs to come together,the city of Omaha is being destroyed slowly. The people of Omaha need to unite and work together to save their city.
amot ttam - You're not a narc if you help the police find these shooters. In MY OPINION lots of people are keeping there mouths shut. That makes them just as guilty as the shooter.
sirrom yelnam esor - Get a life North Omaha. Follow and respect the good people that are and have been mentors for you for yesrs. Stop being thugs and do something with your life. One day when you come to your senses and look you will realize how stupid you were today.
