This is the 3rd place I've seen this ridiculous "cut and pasted" post. You need to stop trying to turn this terrible event into a pulpit for your own personal agenda. This is about Peter Laboy, a man I know to be a good man, his son was in my own kid's cub den, and you need to go complain elsewhere, like here: http://request.alexandriava.gov/CCC/#tab=Categories&service=APD_TAXICOMPL
It never ceases to amaze me how selfish people can take other people's tragedies and try to make it about themselves and their own insignificant complaints.
Folks, Peter and his family need our support. Let's not turn it into something else.
Thanks to Todd R for providing a link to a way to support them. Please provide prayer too if you are so inclined.

Maybe you should stop your cynical and disgusting attempt to turn a good man's tragic event into your own soapbox to preach your own agenda which has nothing to do with this situation. This has nothing to do with cab service or other cab drivers. It has to do with an outlaw senselessly shooting a good man. Go find another place to whine about how bad your experiences are with the cab service...
like here: http://alexandriava.gov/Taxicabs
or here: http://request.alexandriava.gov/CCC/#tab=Categories&service=APD_TAXICOMPL
This sounds suspiciously like a post from some rival cab company...

My thought is that you are trying to turn this officer's tragic event into a soapbox for your own personal agenda. Find another place to wave your flag. This is about a good policeman, a friend and neighbor who was senselessly gunned down by an outlaw. It has nothing to do with cab service.

Prayers go out to Peter and family. Hang in there all. Peter is strong and has the will to live. Your neighbors are here for whatever you might need.

@Mccrae -Why in the world would you make a comment like this you creep? Peter is a good man. He is a neighbor and a GOOD person. His stepson was in my boy's cub scout troop. It's because of good guys like him that we can sleep at night. He puts his life on the line every time he steps outside the door in uniform. You don't even know the man, yet you try to lump him in with the few, VERY few, bad apples in the barrel. Do us a favor and go suck some taxi cab exhaust fumes and keep your inappropriate comments to yourself. Nobody is forgetting the victims of bad cops, but I'd like to forget that trolls like YOU exist in the world.
